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

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 […]

What Jesus Brings to the Table 

Written on September 4, 2018 at 3:01 pm, by

Fundamentally, basically, and quite-a-bitly, the world is either engaged in or sick of religion.  God didn’t come via His Son that we might have abundant religion.  Rather, Jesus came that we all might experience abundant life.  Yay Jesus!  And yay for us! The religious world has bought into two grand mistakes; attendance and doctrine.  Don’t […]

Watch Your Language

Written on August 28, 2018 at 12:47 pm, by

My friend Lea Ann Howard Hughes recently quoted Benjamin Franklin’s, “I will speak ill of no man… and speak all the good I know of everybody.”  His statement is a world-changer; your world, my world…our world.  The basic nature of speaking is that it is creative.  What we say begins to exist.  Speak disdain and […]

PERPETUAL DESCENDING

Written on August 21, 2018 at 11:54 am, by

Christianity is always gaining ground as it intentionally loses it. The magic of Jesus is his reversed course of dying to self, yielding to unfairness, and finishing last. This is so very backward, is it not? Jesus descended ladders of influence instead of climbing them. He took care of others rather than being pampered as […]

The Art Of Faith

Written on August 14, 2018 at 12:02 pm, by

Artists fascinate me. Whether musically inclined, murally impactive, or magically gifted, a person skilled in the arts zone is, indeed, a blessing to all. Similar impact comes from each of us when we grasp the God-given art of walking by faith. The art of faith surely comes with a significant challenge. It is easier to […]

Your Strongest Personal Source Of Understanding

Written on August 7, 2018 at 11:22 am, by

No one is exempt. Each individual has a God-given, God-provided source to understand the ailment that burdens others. That supply? Our own struggles. The conqueror is of little help to the conquered. Those previously conquered are the ones who truly “get us”. Those previously defeated, deflated, or depressed are the ideal help for those experiencing […]
