Wide Road excerpt “Worldly Wisdom”

kims bookunnamed

The stronghold of worldly wisdom began to sway like a reed in the mighty wind until finally it toppled over. Crushed beneath the wisdom of this world were those who trusted in the high-minded reasoning’s of men.  Joel, who barely escaped with his life, ran blindly down the wide road in utter fear. Looking back over his shoulder he saw the rock of ages grind the tower of worldly wisdom to powder.

Wide Road excerpt “The heavens declare the glory of God.”

kims bookunnamed

The heavens declared the glory of God and the skies proclaimed the work of his hands. Day after day and night after night they displayed knowledge of the wonders of creation, but Joel, with his heart of unbelief, continued to journey down the wide road in the blindness of his understanding. When the sun fell behind a mountain at the end of a clear and lovely day, Joel fell asleep under a fir tree. Sleeping amongst the stars and feeling the soft wind blow through the sky, the traveler of the wide road gave no thought for his life. Nor did he consider the creation about him which testified of the handiwork of the Creator.

Wide Road excerpt “The Sufficiency of Grace.”

kims bookunnamed

“In the sufficiency of Grace, who never left Joel’s side, all the shadows of his past life on the wide road fled away. Now a new day had begun, in which Joel, could live in the Good Shepherd’s victory regardless of any circumstance. All things were made new day by day as Joel was being transformed from one degree of glory to another. Wisdom crowned him with knowledge and with understanding in all things pertaining to life and godliness, by the washing of the water of the word.”

Wide Road excerpt “Good Intentions”

kims bookunnamed

After much time spent on the wide road, self seeking, Joel once again became puffed up in the imagination of his heart. “I shall look for a place to put down roots. All this traveling is getting me nowhere.”

Joel decided that he was now able, to try and obey the golden rule. With a heart longing to be good Joel ventured upon the winding path of Good Intentions in hopes of making a benevolent impression that would most certainly, in his opinion, make him ready for eternity.

Wide Road excerpt “The Good Shepherd’s Garden”

kims bookunnamed

As Joel walked along with Grace through the Good Shepherd’s garden, he saw song birds making melody in the trees; the cooing of the dove, the little sparrows and the song of the nightingale. The Rose of Sharon bloomed magnificently with the beauty of the Lord and the Almond tree, whose early pink blossoms suddenly sprang forth in the midst of winter, hastened the word of the Lord to perform all the Good Shepherd’s good pleasure.

The blessings of the olive tree with its graceful billowing branches brought forth peace and health to the wounded and the fig tree whose muscular branches exerted the Lord of the harvest’s power, spread forth from the fertile ground to give strength to the weary. Red pomegranates budded royally and as Joel drank deep of the nectar he experienced love, joy and peace in the Holy Spirit.

Wide Road excerpt, “The Agape’s”

kims bookunnamed

As he sat upon a bench in the court yard in the warm sunshine, Joel began to examine his heart. Yes, he was just way too selfish to stay in this peaceful place. How could he ever be like the Agape’s who had such giving natures and selfless dispositions? No, it was just impossible.

Well, it is about time that you came to your senses.” Joel’s carnal nature began to rise up again. “Whatever were you thinking? Join with those mutton heads? Surely you must be joking! Like you could ever be one of those narrow road goodie two shoes, now that’s funny, real funny!”

Joel signed with resignation and decided that it was best if he just continued on in his journey down the wide road and hope that he would one day find something to satisfy him.

Wide Road excerpt “There is No Rest for the Wicked.”

kims bookunnamed

As Joel slept on in his false tranquility, he was unaware that his life was as a vapor, here today but gone tomorrow.  It was not until he was awakened by the sorrow of this world that he began to realize he had been deceived into thinking that all was well on the wide road.

Woe, woe, woe,’’ the baritone voice of the willow tree, under which Joel slept, groaned with sorrow. Startled to alertness the traveler of the wide road rubbed the sleep from his eyes and looked up in amazement. He found that the willow tree in great big sobs was crying tears which had withered the grass into a dingy looking yellow and faded the beauty of the flowers beneath.

Wide Road Excerpt “The Land of Self-seeking”

kims bookunnamed

Traveling through the weeds of wicked intentions that lead through the thorny spikes of worldly sorrows, Joel in stubborn determination continued in his own way until he came to the entrance of the land of Self-seeking. At the entrance to the city he saw a sinister looking man sitting in a booth by the wayside. Dressed in black attire and wearing a devilish grin upon his face the man motioned for Joel to come towards him. As he did, Joel saw a sign hanging over the booth where the man was sitting, that read; “Welcome to the Wide Road. All travelers required to exert self- will and worldly ambition. Have a pleasant journey.”

Wide Road excerpt, “The Call.”

kims bookunnamed

Sitting by the stream with his feet soaking in the rippling water, Joel contemplated the narrow way. As he did, it was not long before a diabolical voice began to whisper its deceitfulness into his ear. “Do you really believe that narrow way is the only way to the abundant life?”

     The evil spirit flicked its two forked tongue into the traveler of the wide road’s ear. “What about all the other paths? Are they not sophisticated and filled with worldly wisdom? Why ever would you listen to that voice which is calling you? Just ignore the call for it will soon stop bothering you if you ignore it long enough.”

Wide Road Excerpt, “Wasteland”

kims bookunnamed

In the morning as the sun was just beginning to beat down upon the traveler of the wide road’s head, Joel awoke to find a herd of wild asses roaming about him foraging for grass among the barren rocks. An idea struck him, that if he could just catch one of them, he might be able to hitch a ride out of this wasteland. Using the belt from his pants, Joel tried to sneak up behind one of the short legged creatures and nab him. Not to be outwitted, the wild ass who saw the traveler of the wide road’s shadow behind him, kept moving ahead every time that Joel got closer.
