The Value Of Being Tested

Written on January 15, 2019 at 12:34 pm, by

One of the utmost stresses ever to hit our doorstep is that moment where we are being tested. Too, it’s likely one of the most valuable and productive moments of our day. So, do what you can to not dismiss raw conflict and abrasive contradiction. Rather, grow from them. Have we become a people who […]

If ever there is the duplicative track to be found in us which corresponds to the surprise and world-changing walk of Jesus, it is mercy. Mercy places each of us into “truth focus”. Sure, we have a hankering to keep score of those who-know-better sinners among us. It’s usually always a “they” notation. The score? […]

Awaken to Wonder!

My desire is to stop a robbery. I’m posting a warning sign that says, “DON’T GIVE UP”. Haven’t you figured it out by now? Everything we approach, touch, or try, has inbuilt contamination factors. From birth, to education, to employment, to marriage, to socializing, and into retirement, every individual is harassed by the whisper to […]

Christianity in Conflict

Written on December 4, 2018 at 11:53 am, by

Tension reigns throughout the hallways of Church. It is more subtle, I believe, than stark. Yet, the strain should be addressed in hopes of the call of God gaining fruitful momentum within society at large. The conflict? I see churches doing what we can to sell ourselves in ways that would draw community. Who doesn’t […]

Walking By Faith

Written on November 20, 2018 at 11:07 am, by

Faith is the world-changer intended for you, for me… for we. Anytime some form of the word “believe” is used, it is always from the base that some element is not existing at the moment; yet can become.  Super-Natural! Faith seems to have lost its thrust as we toss it about nonchalantly as a spiritual […]

Shifting From Being Critical to Being a Critical Thinker

Written on November 13, 2018 at 11:33 am, by

To be a critical thinker is to weigh circumstances and elements with the ponderization of what can become as a result of such factors. To be critical, on the other hand is to find fault usually as a narrow-minded habitualistic process. We want to be the former; not the latter. The critic wants others to […]

The Garden and the Cross

Written on November 6, 2018 at 12:53 pm, by

The picture in the Garden of Eden’s beginning glory was one thing. The view at the treacherous Cross was quite the opposite. In the Garden, the sin of man took the beauty of God and made it look ugly. The Cross took the ugliness of man and transformed it back into the beauty of God. […]

From Chaos to Order

Written on October 30, 2018 at 11:17 am, by

To have authentic order, there must be the ever-occurring element of chaos. Thus we welcome the God-starter of creativity. Chaos gives creativity legitimacy; it lets it shine! Think on this: order comes from chaos. To have a walk where only order is permitted, eventual chaos will arise because chaoslessness is non-existent where engagement with Him […]

Don’t Be The One Who Gets You Down

Written on October 23, 2018 at 10:25 am, by

Whew! Challenges x struggles x bewilderments = well… more whew! It ain’t easy being a person. I’m highly sympathetic to your treacherous moments. I think about you/us a lot; what to do, how to help, etc. Here’s what I know. Much… very much… of our difficulties develop within our two ears; how we evaluate, surmise, […]

Jesus Walked In Our Shoes Before We Had Feet

Written on October 2, 2018 at 12:06 pm, by

The only way to encounter an upbeat life is to be embedded within the One Jesus who lost his life that we might discover and recover ours. Jesus broke the system of born, live, die, and gone. He created born, live, die, and be resurrected to life eternal. Of all who claim to have the direction […]
