ArynChristian Fiction20 Comments

In my opinion, Biblical Allusions are one of the best things about reading Christian fiction.

Fear God not Man, Bible verses about fear

When you fear God not man, you have so much more freedom! The pressure is so much lighter! To fear no one but God is an interesting dynamic, I think. (Matthew 10:26-33 NASB) 26 “Therefore do not fear them, for there is nothing concealed that will not be revealed, or hidden that will not be known. 27 What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops. 28 Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who … Read More

How important is keeping your promise? On a scale of one to ten, where would you place the importance of keeping your word? I would venture to say that It’s not meaningless (1) but is it a consistent 10? Jesus said: “let your yes be yes, and your no, no.” (Matthew 5:37) Basically, mean what you say, and follow through. A lot of things are easier said than done, or we wouldn’t be urged to “count the cost in advance.” Can we talk about what keeping a promise means for a bit, then I will share a great book I’ve just … Read More

What Does it Mean to Dwell in the Shelter of the Most High?

ArynChristian Fiction17 Comments

It’s a privilege for us to Dwell in the Shelter of the Most High. As Beth Moore is so fond of saving, there ain’t no ‘high’ like the Most High! He is the Maker, Creator, Master and Friend. Almighty Father Protector and Guide. For us to be allowed shelter with Him, well, wow! I’ve spent a good bit of time on Psalm 90-91 lately (a prayer of Moses), with this post in mind. Psalm 90 talks about the Most High God, and His power and eternal nature. A plea to see God’s work, be seen, and granted favor. Psalm 91 … Read More

How to Easily Define Stratagem for Murder: Divert Attention

ArynChristian Fiction12 Comments

Ah, mystery! A great way to define Stratagem. You’re going to like this book!   Today’s Celebrate Lit book review is Stratagem. I picked it because it is a mystery, and I haven’t read many mysteries lately. The blurb / teaser sounded great!   If you watched the TV show Psych, where the main character pretends to be psychic but is actually a good observer, and solves crimes for the police, you will appreciate how Grayson uses his psychology degree to study all areas of a person’s life, and predict almost to the second, each person’s reactions to his carefully … Read More
