WHY SHEEP NEED A SHEPHERD

Written on May 14, 2019 at 12:18 pm, by

Admittedly, I’ve written about this topic before. Yet, living as a part of a magnificent church flock, I continue to find some of the intricacies to sheep eyesight to be most fascinating. The reason sheep need a shepherd is that their eyesight is a problem. Due to the eye formation from early lambhood, they are […]

Constructechians or Destructarians?

Written on April 30, 2019 at 11:32 am, by

People!  Urggh!  They can be impossible at times. Oh!  Wait a minute!  I am a people! And so are you! It’s fair to note where improvement needs to be made among our brood. It’s when we remain self aware of our own lack that we are able to be constructechians rather than destructarians. We each […]

Use The Brains God’s Given You

Written on April 23, 2019 at 11:08 am, by

Oh, how we’ve heard that phrase. Especially slow ones as myself. Yet the statement, possibly without its often inclusive harshness of tone, has application in places which we would/could find beneficial. With that in mind, I wonder about a similar comment. What if we were to use the grace God’s given us? I mean, what […]

Let’s Build A Bigger Crowd For God

Written on April 16, 2019 at 1:59 pm, by

I love this about faith. It has its own unique energy unmatched by any other element. It cooperates with dreamers, initiates possibilities, and aggravates rule-riders. Faith is the fear killer. We want it. We need it. But the fear killer persistently steps in with seemingly more reasonable (and always deadening) suggestions. Faith doesn’t first have […]

Jesus Pulls Us Into Humanity

Written on April 9, 2019 at 12:17 pm, by

It may be that much emphasis toward knowing Jesus is from a faulty perspective. Is there not abundant initiative on our part to teach of his pulling us toward a higher zone of living that often seems out of reach? Has not our talk of his divinity, minus his humanity, left many of us convinced […]

Plant The Eternal Stuff

For all of God’s second chances you need… be handing them out to others. For all of God’s forgiveness you need… be handing it out to others. For all of God’s mercy you need… be handing out to others. We reap what we sow. Plant the Eternal Stuff.

Breathe Life!

Written on March 26, 2019 at 3:24 pm, by

Breathing is the signal that one is alive. To stop breathing is to be dead. One doesn’t breathe when it occurs to him. It is the nature of repetition moment by next moment. Believers in God are to exist moment by moment as we receive the intake of the Holy Spirit. The receiving of the […]

Alive In the Land of Wonder

Written on March 19, 2019 at 12:11 pm, by

“Beauty. Mystery. Wonder. They all three go together. The primary human response to an encounter with overwhelming beauty is wonder. Wonder is the transcendent sensation we experience when we find ourselves in the presence of an awe-inspiring sunset, an artistic masterpiece, or a newborn baby. Wonder is the uniquely human reaction to the sublime. Cows […]

Running On Empty

Written on March 12, 2019 at 1:03 pm, by

Usually it is perceived as negative when it is said that one is running on empty. The idea is that one has been depleted of strength or possibly of value. Yet, God reverses such thinking and we would do well to absorb it into our life approach. Philippians 2 speaks strongly of Jesus “emptying” himself. […]

Living The Lie Of Comparison

Written on February 26, 2019 at 3:32 pm, by

An inner war takes place within each of us.  For some it is occasional.  Yet for others, it’s a nearly a daily grind.  Whether educated or un, employer or ee, or even a Demo-publican, one thing tends to rule every heart… living by comparison. I’m a champion knower of this curse.  Others… somebody somewhere…are always […]
