Why There Is Always Hope

Hope. The word seems kinda conditional.  If things go the way we had “hoped” then hope seems to live.  If not; then there wasn’t any “hope”. Truthfully, there is always hope.  If what we had wished doesn’t come about as we had planned, there is ample reason to believe there is a plan B.  Again, […]


Life in Jesus is neither hokey, sheer formality, nor even religious.  Did Jesus say that he came that we might have religion in abundance (Jn. 10:10)?  Or, was it life in abundance? It was LIFE! It’s interesting that in that John chapter Jesus was stating that the thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy. This […]

What We Can Do to Free Ourselves From Mediocrity

There is this thing that goes on perpetually which stymies progress.  I believe that there is a culprit in our camp that shuts us down.  It’s strong.  It’s influential.  And, it’s mean. For years I submitted to this rude intruder.  I was found to be invisibly shackled by his clear voice that rang out with […]

The Church Isn’t A Lecture Hall 

I sit at this computer day in and day out.  My first agenda is to post something real for where you live; for who you are.  That’s an exciting challenge in itself as numbers say there are over 1,600 of you out there reading these words.  What an exciting and wide array of personalities and […]

When We Talk With God 

Surely one of the grandest transfers God has made in my life would be that of prayer. Don’t misunderstand, I am not the great example of a praying person.  As a matter of fact, I would be noted as the opposite.  Yet, I encourage you about this topic because He has led me into a […]

How to Handle the Storms

Stormy days and howling nights try to disturb the equilibrium of the heart.  Hard times take a swipe at each of us with insult, disappointment, or very bad news.  And we are supposed to shine on how? Matthew 14 contains that famous story of Jesus walking on water.  Really, two walked on water that day; […]

Determined Endurance

Life is ungraspable.  Who can track it efficiently?  The bulk of society is attentive to developing a productive life.  We want to matter.  To make a difference is the honorable goal of oh so many. Often, interruption… well… interrupts.  Our goals are hampered by setbacks.  Our missions suffer distraction.  If we create a new venture […]

I Told Them I Was the Janitor

On occasion I’m assigned to work with some whom I have never met.  When I know they have no idea what I do, I tell them I am the church janitor.  They readily accept such. Last weekend the Ann Voskamp team was here to do an amazing outreach event. When I met some of the […]

How To Get A Grip On The Best Life Possible 

Don’t you just love people? I do.  I first learned it from my mom, then from friends, and ultimately from God. Fascinating.  Ambitious.  Tender.  Imaginative.  Thoughtful.  Welcoming.  Talented. If I were to survey what it is that helps men and women, boys and girls, make it over the highest hurdle in order to finish the […]


Victory.  Oh how we like it.  Celebration.  More of the same.  Success.  A feel-good moment. Who doesn’t appreciate the victory and celebration of success.  (V-C-S) Christianity is not a new brand of V-C-S lifestyle.  Neither is it simply a notch above worldly V-C-S.  No. Christianity gives its inhabitants abundance of life and grace when there […]
