Keep the Pushback Going 

Written on April 24, 2018 at 10:12 am, by

Faith is a major entity of the human course.  Temptation to move along by our own wisdom or our insecurities is strong; very, very strong.  Faith sees where eyes can’t.  Faith takes us where hesitation won’t.  To walk by faith is to possess an inner determination which defies all odds, all uncertainties, and all opponents.

The Power of Change

Written on April 17, 2018 at 11:28 am, by

Change is a very strange agent within the body of Christ followers. It’s heroic to some and villainized by others. Biblically, change is apparent and called for while noting that some things don’t…and aren’t supposed to do so. Examples of the latter would be patterns of both church organization as well as the husband/wife/children family […]

Humility Will Lead To Prayer 

Written on April 10, 2018 at 12:47 pm, by

For any who take our faith seriously, immediate threat lingers in the wings.  That intimidation would be known as ego; it awaits to surge forward into control, into action, into self-desiring.  Yet, we are very much required/expected by God to move beneath the courageous banner of faith. We have a God to be believed and […]

Trade Your Religious Squeegee For a Spiritual Towel

Written on April 3, 2018 at 12:23 pm, by

The table is set and one of the guests knocks over a glass of tea.  A puddle remains atop of the dining table.  You need a tool to clean up the mess.  Shall you reach for a squeegee or a towel?  If you grab the former, you will clear the table of the mess only […]

Let Jesus Be Your Translator 

Written on March 27, 2018 at 10:48 am, by

So often we just don’t understand.  It isn’t that we can’t interpret the language for we basically know the ins and outs of such.  It’s the meaning of what we are hearing, seeing, realizing that interpretation is quite often needed. So often we just don’t understand.  What’s the stress all about?  Why the insults?  Where’s […]

My Great Frustration With People 

Written on March 20, 2018 at 12:59 pm, by

Urrggh!  People!  Ever feel frustrated with “them”?  And, why is that?  Because they are stupid, sinful, dopes, or just plain annoying?  Could be.  But, I wish to bend your justifiable (?) irritation toward a correcting possibility. I experience incredible frustration with people.  I have for years…well, decades.  Yet, it’s not from a thread of criticism.  […]

Why Don’t You Just Come Unglued?

Written on March 13, 2018 at 10:51 am, by

From experience, my own personal, I’m learning that the vast majority of us live within the confines of operating from an imposed pseudo sort of life. By that, I believe that we are trying to maneuver our walk via the demands of hesitancy, uncertainty, and self-doubt. For those of us who may note this about […]

Church People… Who Believe We Are Always Right

Written on February 27, 2018 at 12:37 pm, by

I love being a part of church. Admittedly, it has its challenges. But, so does it also have its incredible fascinations. Lately, there has been a stirring of conflict and accusation of which I seemed to have landed in the middle. Therefore, I have a few words to say to any who care. I’m tired […]

God is Not Our Waiter

Written on February 20, 2018 at 11:55 am, by

Might we have things a bit backwards at times?  Do we practice prayer sporadically and, when we do, it’s the process of us sitting at the table (or pew) and placing our orders?  “God, we’d like two days unscrambled so that by 8:00 p.m. we could note that they were over easy.  Too, would you keep […]
