Damascus Road

Thanks to everyone for your well wishes yesterday! The power came back on just after midnight; also, I am still making good progress at work, even though things are very busy. God is good!

Now onto this week’s cartoon. For those of you who are not acquainted with the apostle Paul’s “Damascus Road” experience, here’s a quick synopsis:

Before God changed his name to Paul, the man’s name was Saul, and he was a huge persecutor of the church in his day. Saul thought he was doing the right thing by harassing the Christians, but he really wasn’t, so God decided to get his attention in a clear and unmistakable way (by speaking to him audibly and shining a blinding light in his face. Not exactly subtle). Long story short, Saul – now named Paul – got the message, and not only stopped persecuting the church, he became one of its most vocal proponents! Anyway, God’s dramatic intervention happened on a road, while Saul was en route to a place called Damascus.

Enjoy, and don’t miss the banana peel in the bottom left-hand corner of the picture. 😀

  1. So grateful the power’s back on. You’ve been through so much. I’m also very grateful that God reached Paul, and the tremendous work that he did in sharing the gospel. If God had used a banana peel instead…whatever works.

    1. In actuality, the power was only out for a couple of hours, but I was grateful that it came back on!

      And you’ve been through a lot as well. However, I’ve always admired your unwavering faith and trust in the Lord despite your trials. Your blog is a great encouragement to me that way.

      And your comment about Paul on the banana peel cracked me up. Yes, whatever works. 😂

  2. Hey!
    You present some good cartoons, I always enjoy them.
    Ol Paul was traveling-challenged wasn’t he? 😀

    And I wrote a post this mornin as a result of your comment on another of my posts. I later saw your comment that you didn’t misunderstand my post. But it still worked out for good in my opinion. It was fun writing it, and I especially enjoyed relating how He worked in a situation.

    Keep up your good work! 😀

    1. Lee, your comment about Paul’s travel issues cracked me up. 🙂 Thank you – I needed that chuckle.

      And I will have to check out the post you mentioned! Thank you for bringing it to my attention.

      You keep up your good work! ✝️ I will continue to pray for you and Melissa.

    1. Oh goodness – I thought that I replied to this at length a few days ago, but I see now that my comment did not post.

      Thank you for the nomination! I really appreciate it. My biggest challenge is figuring out how to track them and respond to them in a timely way. I wish there were a place on WordPress where we all could check out awards – like an “awards corner” or something.

      I think what I may try to do is respond to the award at the end of one of my regular posts. I did that once last year, I think, and it seem to work. Thanks again for thinking of me, Ryan! I really appreciate your thoughtfulness. 😀

  3. Thanks, Ryan. I’m still trying to figure out how to respond to award nominations – know that I really appreciate your thoughtfulness. Then I’m never really sure where to find them ( I wish that were an option on our WordPress dashboard, to view nominations and respond to them!).

    Once upon a time I did respond to a nomination, but appended to the very end of another post. Maybe I’ll try that this time – perhaps at the end of my gratitude post on Monday.

    Thanks again, Ryan! I hope you are feeling better.
