Why We Never Give Up 

Written on May 23, 2017 at 10:11 am, by

The sturdiness of a believer is not to be gauged by whether we attend a church. Authentic strength is found in whether our lives are marked by a determined endurance; a power-wash love for all people around us. I speak not of an “overmydeadbody” bullishness, either. Rather, the question revolves around the strategy of Jesus in […]

…. and Then There’s That Element Called Death 

Written on May 16, 2017 at 9:15 am, by

Why do we live upon this earth with habitual pretentiousness that we will never die; that we are each the exception to this most dominant rule?  Yes, we know it’s coming; but it’s always out there sort of in a delay mode so to speak. This is unfortunate. I don’t mean it’s unfortunate that we […]

Positioned For Success 

Written on May 9, 2017 at 12:52 pm, by

As long as we esteem ourselves above others, we will fail to accomplish that which God has in mind.  It is when we humble ourselves that He has our permission to take us where He wills and do with us as He has always planned. Positioned for success is never to be found at the […]

Would God Make a Difference? 

Written on May 2, 2017 at 9:11 am, by

Why is it that day after day so many carry heavy burdens which weight the heart.  And, it isn’t necessarily the same people every day.  We all seem to take our turns.  Those at the highest public perspective walk the same earth as those at the lower end of the spectrum. When I was in […]

A-N-O-T-B: The Secret to a Disappointless Day! 

Written on April 17, 2017 at 5:08 pm, by

Don’t buy into the tradition of moodiness.  That stuff will suck one under in a blink; in a heartbeat.  No, what we do is acknowledge the value of our profound existence moment by moment. I once lived a yo-yo life.  Up one day (maybe two) and then down the next (and maybe the next).  I […]

May We Get Back To Jesus 

Written on April 11, 2017 at 10:14 am, by

Churchers’ usual comments are often that we need to get back to the Bible.  That’s partially true.  It would be the Bible that holds the genuine article about Jesus the Lamb.  God gave us the Word to learn of the Who that He gave us.  The problem, that we obviously experience, is that within the […]

Excuse Me… But Is That A Gas Chamber Around Your Neck? 

Written on April 4, 2017 at 10:59 am, by

Can you imagine a necklace with a form of a gold gas chamber dangling?  How about a gold hangman’s noose lapel pin?  Or… how about a gold cross? You know… jewelry? These questions are intended to draw into perspective the loss we have suffered as the perspective of the Cross has shifted dramatically from a […]

The Need for Both Positive and Negative Input 

Written on March 28, 2017 at 11:51 am, by

Life is abundant if we will allow all of its unfolding circumstances and events to affect our walk.  A key word is “all”.  The tendency (or preference) clearly leans toward only the positive. We tend to shun the negative as an interfering element that has no place in our day. But something significant happens when abiding […]

Faith Isn’t Church Rule. It’s a Believer’s Sight 

Written on March 20, 2017 at 7:55 pm, by

Seeing can be believing.  To the contrary, seeing can persuade disbelieving.  The difference between the two is whether we depend upon what the eyes of our head view or what the eyes of our hearts perceive.  Think about it.  We are to walk by faith…and…not by sight.  Something’s up with this, wouldn’t you think? God […]

How To Have An Immediately Much Better Day 

Written on March 14, 2017 at 10:35 am, by

The way to the top is to move to the bottom.  Jesus taught it.  He lived it.  He is THE success story of all stories because he lived with purpose as as well as personal fulfillment… and he defied the grave. This. We. Want. If we believe that we are going to find joy in […]
