I'm Just Saying

Dr. Paul Perkins

Join The Adventure!

For an author writing is as necessary as breathing. They don't write for money or to court literary fame, but because they believe they have something to say. It matters not that anyone will read or listen, the words must be written, and if in the process someone is blessed -- all the more wonderful

Dr. Perkins has written for a long time, but only recently has sought to publish his work and venture into new genres. He believes in education, finally earning his doctorate at the age of 55. He believes that learning never ends, giving fodder to the imagination and breathing life into the characters on his page. His hope is to continue telling stories for a new generation of readers and aspiring authors.

Dr. Perkins' first novel is "Centurion: From glory to glory", but is not his first book. He has written "Legacy to my sons", "The Lost Shepherd", "The prayer of a transformed life", "The Cost", and a verity of Christian Youth Devotionals. 

Craving Something More

I am sure that at one time or another you have wondered, “There has to be more.”  I know I have. Over the past 75 years our culture has experimented with religiosity, universalism, materialism, atheism, self-indulgence, self-sacrifice, and doubt. We have tried it all and have found it wanting, empty, and unfulfilling. As I have thought about where we have been I have come to realize that we all crave something more.  The problem is that we are not sure what that something is, but we are sure that we will know it when we find it.

This is true no matter what our age. For those who are older the questions are old and stale; for you who are younger the questions are fresh; but old or new the cravings are deep and the desire to be fulfilled powerful. I believe that the cravings we so desperately want can be summed up by the following:

  • We crave relationships
  • We crave significance
  • We crave a spiritual experience

In my own journey to satisfy these craving I have been drawn again and again to the person of Jesus.  It is in Him that these cravings are truly satisfied.  It is a fuller understanding of Him, His life, His ministry, His power, and His provision that allows us to be satisfied.

It is the goal of this blog to chronicle the nature of this journey toward satisfaction.  It is my hope that through my reflection that you will reflect yourself on the nature of your cravings and how they can be truly and deeply satisfied.
