All posts by Nathan Dooley

My objective is from the book of James 5:19-20. Doolz is my nickname. I enjoy a cup of coffee with God; time with my wife; time learning psychology; time coaching spiritual development through faith in Jesus Christ. The ability to 'be still' does not come natural to me and so reading and writing is an invaluable treasure; it's where I experience the providence of God. My hope for this profile is to serve the reader with a unique perspective to the gift of God through writing.

Time Management

With less than 30 minutes to write about how I can improve myself in time management should tell you everything you need to know about how well I manage time—not very well.

How are you with time management?

This was not how I imagined my first post of 2023, but here I am, writing to improve how I manage time. That alright, there’s time 😉.

Just in this little bit of time I realize so many variables against me when making my intention for this post to be published as soon as I reach the deadline, which is now less than 5 minutes, and I need to pee.

So my first move on this chess board of time is making my opponent aware of my weakness, bringing it’s darkness into light.

12/31/2022: Sin’s Cycle Concluded

Originally my idea for concluding Sin’s Cycle was discovering how sin originated and then to investigate the matter of whether you, I or someone we know remains in unbelief to the gospel—by which the Christian knows to be the power of God to salvation (Rom. 1:16)—and is presently condemned to the eternal consequence. It turned out that that was going to be a lot more work than I had planned, so now I’m working off the idea of all things in our present state of being leading to one conclusion: The Coming of The Lord!

When I think about this world I share with you, but without the gospel, it’s natural to conform to what the world is up to no matter where you are located; we awake, we ache, we eat, we work, we play, we sleep into the entertainment of agendas today. Lets go see a movie, smoke some weed, watch some reels—or porn, drink something new, rewrite the constitution, ‘how about dem Cowboys?!’. The distractions from the burden of disciples made are relentless.

Ultimately, I think human’s consciousness of this world—our world that is passing away and the lust its of—has ‘hit the roof’. It’s a game of risk. Every move on the chess board a person makes is to checkmate their own soul in hell for the sake of being king rather than subjecting to their King of God’s will, Jesus Christ. When the boundaries to what this world has to offer has been discovered a question is proposed: Will you escape? Because being a “good” person does not grant salvation.

1 John 2:15-17
Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever.
