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 […]

Defeating Defeat… Really!!

Written on July 31, 2018 at 3:45 pm, by

The tactic of dark forces against every person alive is to beat us down.  The strain is to convince each of us that our hopes were fake, that our intentions were wobbly, and that our energy was certainly weak.  You…my friend… are targeted with all of the rest of us to hit moments of having […]

Don’t Forget to Eat Your Vegetables

Written on July 24, 2018 at 2:11 pm, by

As a little kid, one of the least favorite sayings of my mom was, “Don’t forget to eat your vegetables.” (The other was the harping reminder to put on clean underwear.) Oh… I hadn’t forgotten. It was an intentional move on my part. Lettuce, green beans, yucolli… many of you know what I mean. I […]

Every Stress Harbors a Secret Blessing

Written on July 17, 2018 at 11:44 am, by

Faith isn’t a game, folks. It isn’t a one hour exercise for every seventh day. No, faith is the greatest defier of all negative forces we encounter. It believes where sight can’t go. It approaches where calculation hedges. It leaps where threat intimidates. There isn’t a reader who is not/does not face stress day after […]

DO YOU LIKE LIVING?

Written on July 10, 2018 at 1:16 pm, by

How are you doing with this task known as living? Liking it a lot? Not so much? All I want to do for the moment is to remind you of two things: 1. You are alive! 2. So live like it! Ours is a world of stress and burden; oh yes. Simultaneously, our paths are […]

THE GRAND STORY: The Accusers and the Confessers 

Written on June 26, 2018 at 3:15 pm, by

As hard as one tries, the Christian religion has severe clogging of the faith arteries. Those who are burdened with guilt struggle to feel secure in their oh-I-hope-I-am-saved. Those who live critical of any other sinner are guilty of a most grievous sin themselves; denial of their own blatant violations toward God. The Accusers—live in […]
