QQC—Blood and Water

Quirks, Queries and Commentary—Exodus 7:19-24

When Pharaoh refused to let God's people go, God began a show of signs and wonders that were so amazing, they are remembered to this day. Moses met Pharaoh at the river's edge when Pharaoh went for his morning bath. Egypt revered the Nile for it was, by their observation, the source of all good that came to them but God told Moses to stretch his staff "over the waters of Egypt--over the streams and canals, over the ponds and all the reservoirs'--and they will turn to blood. Blood will be everywhere in Egypt, even in the wooden buckets and stone jars." When Moses did this, "all the water was changed into blood."

How then did the Egyptian magicians manage to do the same thing? Where did they find water that wasn't blood to turn into blood if blood was everywhere, even in wooden buckets and stone jars? And how were the people able to dig in the ground for water if all the water had been turned to blood?

I'm married (35 years in December 2008) with four grown sons. I love my city (Winnipeg) and my country (Canada) and promote them both to whoever will listen. God (through Jesus Christ) is the biggest part of my life. I am learning to let him take control of all areas--though I do better at this some times more than others.

I have written a book that's recently been published about part of my journey with God. In it I tell how God confronted me with the same-sex attraction issues I've struggled with all my adult life and how he led me through them to a deeper and more meaningful relationship with him. God is amazing—his forgiveness, his love, his movement in our lives when we allow him and so much more. I suspect God will never run out of things to teach me or ways to make me grow and that’s a good thing (though often very painful).

I suppose I can say that what gives me the greatest pleasure in life is telling others about…

A Real Testimony

I Had Tears Coming

I sat down to read it about a week later and ended up finishing it the same night. At first I admit I was a little bored and thought that the whole book was about a battle all in your mind, but as I continued reading this creeping thought came over me of a different...struggle in my own life, that I would never in my right mind have shared with anyone accept maybe God. I've mentioned your book to a few people because it stirs up age-old controversies that I have myself argued and wondered about, namely about whether or not homosexuality can be cured or just managed like alcoholism--you just have to stay away from temptation. I noticed at the end of your book that your struggle story …
