SORT BY Relevancy
Have you ever found yourself unwittingly defining God by your personal experiences? Deep inside of us, we may know that HIS fullness is unknowable but we can't help ourselves. It's all we've got. this side of eternity.
So, when we pray a certain way and our prayer is answered, we make sure we repeat that same kind of prayer next time. If we anoint the sick with oil and they recover, we stock up on oil. Did a bonus come to us the first time we tithed? Tithing is then our number one recommendation for anyone with financial strain.
These are the little boxes we put God into on our life journey. What we want are as many sure fire formulas and patterns as we can get our hands on so that we can be as successful as possible in our relations with the Almighty. Of course, success in our eyes means "predictable." We want our dealings with God to be certain.
We may go on this way for a time but sooner or later God smashes our boxes. He won't be contained. Our tried and true formula for answered prayer fails or our tithing doesn't eliminate our debt or the sick don't recover no matter how much oil we slosh on them.
When this happens don't despair and don't lose faith. Remember instead: "Woe to the one who quarrels with his Maker -- an earthenware vessel among the vessels of earth! Will the clay say to the potter, 'What are you doing?'" (Isaiah 45:9)
Maybe God measures success differently than we do. Maybe he considers himself successful when he can get us to stop stuffing him in a box.
Join us for live prayer at 6:00 AM, Mon.-Fri. Dial 714.459.3963.

Bennet Pomerantz talks to media guests on the Betty Award winning ANYTHING GOES His guest tonight is the talented fantasy author Alethea Kontis
She had three books come out this summer: TRIXTER, Tales of Arilland, and Diary of a Mad Scientist Garden Gnome--all self published. Am currently working on the audio of TRIXTER through ACX. This year was my year to learn how to become a hybrid author. I have learned a LOT.
Also, the audio of HERO should be out any minute now, via audible, read by Katherine Kellgren. That was a hard-won triumph.

Bennet Pomerantz talks to media guests on the Betty Award winning ANYTHING GOES
I've been an avid readers ever since I was old enough to hold a red leather bound first edition copy of Sir Walter Scott's The Lady of the Lake in my lap.
So it only seemed natural at some point in my life I take up pen and paper to start writing. Over time my skills slightly improved which I attribute to my English teachers.
My breakthrough came about in the mid 1970's when I read a historical romance written by Sergeanne Golon, Angelique. This French husband and wife team opened my eyes to the real world of fiction. Stories about romance, beautiful damsels, handsome heroes and plots which kept me hooked. Of course, being a man, I had to keep my reading hidden from others as that wasn't appropriate reading for men.
With this new found appreciation of the written word I took up other books and devoured them as a starving person would a plate of food. I them attempted to write again. I still wasn't satisfied so I put it aside for years as other events entered my life.
Finally, in the early years of the new millennium I tried again to write and once again met with limited success. At least now I was able to get past the first page or two. Then, in 2006 a life changing event brought me back to my love, I took a job as a security officer. This allowed me plenty of time to read different genres.
My favourite was regency. As I poured through everyone I could get my hands on I knew this could be something I wanted to attempt.
Since 2012 when my debut regency romantic suspense released I was hooked and have, except for a few contemporaries, focused on this genre.
Since 2012 I've lived in central Texas. I'm also a member of Romance Writers of America and their local chapter.
