What We Believe and How We Got There 

We believe many things.  Of course those things vary….a lot.  Some prefer Fords.  Others would not own one.  We understand such opinionated trends.  Often such conclusions have been reached due to experience; if not research. When it comes to God, however, a pattern is fairly predictable. We tend to believe what we inherit. If our […]

Church. What? Again?

Living with God is not a routine.  It is a walk. How long I made my trek to church as a little kid.  There I was always hoping that this time it would be interesting.  I especially liked it when my Grandpa and my uncle sang in the choir.  But mostly I counted down to […]

Stationed For Communication 

Let’s see.  How many links of communication does one have at his or her disposal?  Let me count some of the ways.  You got your telephone.  You got your postal service.  Oh yes, there’s that email and voice mail and Texting and Pintrest and….well there are surely alternatives to get the job done.  Oh, and […]

How to Get Unstuck From Serious Stuckability

I can’t think of anything that feels like a bigger waste of time than being stuck.  A ring on a finger that needs to be removed, a car in a snowdrift, or a big critter wedged within a small doghouse, stuck is not what one would identify as a progressive moment. A mood hovers over […]

Why There Is Always Hope

Hope. The word seems kinda conditional.  If things go the way we had “hoped” then hope seems to live.  If not; then there wasn’t any “hope”. Truthfully, there is always hope.  If what we had wished doesn’t come about as we had planned, there is ample reason to believe there is a plan B.  Again, […]

LIFE IN JESUS

Life in Jesus is neither hokey, sheer formality, nor even religious.  Did Jesus say that he came that we might have religion in abundance (Jn. 10:10)?  Or, was it life in abundance? It was LIFE! It’s interesting that in that John chapter Jesus was stating that the thief comes to steal, kill, and destroy. This […]

What We Can Do to Free Ourselves From Mediocrity

There is this thing that goes on perpetually which stymies progress.  I believe that there is a culprit in our camp that shuts us down.  It’s strong.  It’s influential.  And, it’s mean. For years I submitted to this rude intruder.  I was found to be invisibly shackled by his clear voice that rang out with […]

The Church Isn’t A Lecture Hall 

I sit at this computer day in and day out.  My first agenda is to post something real for where you live; for who you are.  That’s an exciting challenge in itself as numbers say there are over 1,600 of you out there reading these words.  What an exciting and wide array of personalities and […]

When We Talk With God 

Surely one of the grandest transfers God has made in my life would be that of prayer. Don’t misunderstand, I am not the great example of a praying person.  As a matter of fact, I would be noted as the opposite.  Yet, I encourage you about this topic because He has led me into a […]

How to Handle the Storms

Stormy days and howling nights try to disturb the equilibrium of the heart.  Hard times take a swipe at each of us with insult, disappointment, or very bad news.  And we are supposed to shine on how? Matthew 14 contains that famous story of Jesus walking on water.  Really, two walked on water that day; […]
