My Power Verse That Won’t Quit Producing 

Written on October 18, 2016 at 9:43 am, by

“BE ANXIOUS FOR NOTHING, but in EVERYTHING by prayer and supplication WITH THANKSGIVING let your requests be known to God. And the PEACE of God, which surpasses all comprehension, shall guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” “Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is […]

Life Depends On The Placement Of Our Backs 

Written on October 11, 2016 at 12:04 pm, by

Stress.  Concern.  Pressure.  These three, and more, push and prod.  They poke.  They jab.  We live with these elements which frustrate; even depress.  Their forces are so strong that it is often said that our backs are against the wall. What would this phrase, “Our backs are against the wall” imply?  Cornered?  In trouble?  No […]

Hey. You Might Want To Keep What I’m About To Tell You Under Your Hat 

Written on October 4, 2016 at 11:42 am, by

There’s a slick talker roaming within each of our own minds pushing a propaganda of sorts.  It’s a snow job on how bad others are doing, looking, or being while we rationalize within our biased heads that we are above all of the “them and they” failings.  “If they would only…  If they could just see themselves… […]

What In The Heaven Is Going On Here?

Written on September 27, 2016 at 2:45 pm, by

How many times we find ourselves living in that negative (but real world) of, “It seems to be just one thing after another!” This pattern seems to create one big question.  Can there be hope when there are no signs of any on the horizon?  Are there simply not pockets of loneliness or defeat that would seem […]

He Agonized Over Us

Written on September 20, 2016 at 12:30 pm, by

“And being in agony He was praying very fervently; and His sweat became like drops of blood, falling down upon the ground.” Luke 22:44 The above is extracted from a scene in the Garden as Jesus faced execution.  He agonized during deep and penetrating prayer as he approached his assignment to die that the world would have hope.  He wasn’t […]

God: Fact Or Fiction? 

Written on September 13, 2016 at 11:35 am, by

Is there really a God?  Is the idea that Christians put forth as to His reality some sort of inherited fabrication merely perpetuated by family lineage?  Does God exist?  Or, is this idea a hoax of silliest dimension by the thoughtless or weak-minded?  I understand the questions.  They are usually honest. Probing minds which search […]

From A Clothing Perspective 

Written on September 6, 2016 at 11:45 am, by

Ah, that’s a bit of a weak title, I’ll admit.  However, I’ve long been fascinated by a simple “thread” in the Bible regarding clothing. So… here goes. The sin issue in the beginning of Genesis with the early couple, Adam and Eve, was revealing.  I mean, really revealing…like in naked *%#!.  They ate from the […]

Wearing Obligatory Happy Faces 

Written on August 30, 2016 at 12:16 pm, by

Living in treacherous times has always been the case for every individual.  Stresses, pressures, inadequacies; all loom large in our current-day hurry up and wait scenarios. One reason we can’t even keep up with remembering seems to be that there is so much more information to forget these days. As long as I’ve been directly […]

What Might Help The Church Gain Influence 

Written on August 23, 2016 at 1:53 pm, by

I’m crazy nuts to get to be a part of the church; the one where Jesus is the leader.  I’m not referring to the one(s) propped upon street corners pushing and probing to keep their brand in public eye for social response.  Rather I mean to reference a group of united believers who have hang-ups, […]

Building Tension to Create Smiles

Written on August 16, 2016 at 11:30 am, by

I have come up with a great line to encourage any person who is manning the cash register at any business. I just build an oh-so-slight bit of tension only to next ease into bringing them a smile.  When it’s my turn in line to pay, I ask a very simple question; “Do you accept […]
