    Curtain Call

       Last night, on PBS, my Wife and I saw a play. As in all Broadway productions, at the end, the players walked out together, holding hands, for a curtain call. It was then that my mind turned to this Scripture. Revelation says that The Lord will return to Earth, at the end of the tribulation, with His saints. After everything is complete, He and all of us, will return for both a curtain call, and a new act. As one play is ending, and the participants are celebrating, something new starts. Then it will be the end of the seven years of testing, and the beginning of the thousand…

    Mentoring Like Jesus

    Alfred was an out of work architect who set out to build a board game. The result was Scrabble. Perhaps your familiar with the board, the tiles, and the rules. The man who invented it, had been trained to translate his vision from a drawing to concrete, glass, and stone. As I write this, one of my mentors sets a chair away. He’s preparing for a message. I began to think of how his words, and God’s Word through him, has shaped my life. It is more though, than just what or how he has said it, but also when he said it. I’ve been playing a lot of Words…

    Famous For Building

    Psalms 74:5 5 A man was famous according as he had lifted up axes upon the thick trees. In American folklore he is a legend. His mighty axe felling trees that no mere man could cut down. He was famous, not for fighting crime, or rescuing worlds, but cutting down trees. It may not sound as impressive now, but you have to understand what Paul Bunyan’s story represented. He was clearing land for houses in an expanding country. Paul also represented progress. America would become a rich nation, thanks in part to hard work, and harvesting our resources. You and I know that Paul’s story was greatly exaggerated, but what…

    The Shepherds Tent

    Song of Songs 1:8 “8 If thou know not, O thou fairest among women, go thy way forth by the footsteps of the flock, and feed thy kids beside the shepherds’ tents.” This verse represents part of a conversation between Christ and His Church. He is The Shepherd, and The Church is the Fairest of all. In it, He tells her the way to find Him. The Lord says to follow the path of the footsteps of the flock, and to feed thy children beside of the Shepherd’s tents. This is beautiful for so many reasons, one of which is this, sheep don’t leave footsteps. Only Shepherd’s leave footprints. We…

    A New Season

    I love the line in the old song, “It’s a new season, it’s a new day… .” It came to mind this morning concerning this post. Yesterday, when The Lord blessed me with the new iPainting, “Autumn”, I didn’t realize it was for this post. We are in a new season at PruittWrites.com. This month, on Saturdays, we will begin “The Adventures Of The Sea Horse.” Over the last year, we have ran four ongoing serials, and it has been exciting and fun. For now though, we want to focus our full fictional attention to a series that we hope, will be for young and old alike. It will run…

    Storm Of Mercy

    Job 37: 9-13 9 Out of the south cometh the whirlwind: and cold out of the north. 10 By the breath of God frost is given: and the breadth of the waters is straitened. 11 Also by watering He wearieth the thick cloud: He scattereth his bright cloud: 12 And it is turned round about by His counsels: that they may do whatsoever He commandeth them upon the face of the world in the earth. 13 He causeth it to come, whether for correction, or for His land, or for mercy. Job said many things in his book, and some of them were wondrous, like when he said, “I know…

    Unlocking The Doors

    The keys were in the ignition. The car was running, and the seats were warm.  It was ready to go, the only problem was it’s two normal passengers.  We were also excited, but for a very different reason.  I had locked my Wife and I out of the car. In thirty eight years, I don’t think that I’ve ever had to call a locksmith to open my car.  Thankfully, it was covered by insurance.  However, I lost roughly two hours in the process. It may not seem like a lot of time, but a great deal can happen in two hours. In reflecting back on this, The Lord directed my…

    Paper Bags, Cardboard Boxes, and iPhones

    Ephesians 3:20 20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, My supervisor bought doughnuts for our office today. It was a nice gesture, and then something happened. I had trouble closing the box, it was a simple crease issue. I put down what I was juggling, and closed it. Then a thought struck me, “Who created the paper/cardboard box?” The first paperboard, not cardboard, box was produced in England. However, the pre-cut paperboard/cardboard box was invented in Brooklyn in 1890. His name was Robert Gair, a Scottish born Brooklyn printer and paper-bag…

    All The Time In The World

    Matthew 11:19 19 … A friend of publicans and sinners. I love reading the Gospels. I love seeing the different things that God anointed these four men to write, the events that they all shared, and those occasions that only one or two mentioned. It is my heart felt belief that everything in The Bible, whether written or not written, was for a purpose. If God placed something in The Bible, it’s important. Those times that He chose not to say something, are equally important. As I was reading, a question came to mind, “How many times have I missed saying something to someone.” The only difference is, they were…

    Standing Together

    “… That we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.”
