Why Church Is Exciting

Written on June 25, 2019 at 11:50 am, by

Truthfully, I never saw it coming. I’ve been to church since a little kid. Parts I liked. Parts I didn’t. The Kool-Aid and cookies were my big draw! The rest was simply a matter of putting in my time. It’s the latter that I find sensed by so many… in church. And, I’m not critical […]

Enthrallment Is All It’s Promised To Be

I encourage you to awaken to the wonder all about you (just in case you’ve been tugged by distraction). It’s so easy to lose track of successes for you are surely pelted by difficulty and distress. No one is exempt. While we do not pretend that our walk has no problems, we can factually and […]

The Greatest Daily Challenge

Written on June 10, 2019 at 10:40 pm, by

I John 4:8 issues a profound statement, “Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love.” While such a comment is world-changing in truth, it has become possibly a yawner in church. We likely tend to like those we like and don’t like those we don’t. Follow me? Let us sense the […]

Faith is More Than a Scorecard

Written on June 3, 2019 at 11:22 pm, by

Faith is one gigantic trait that, even in the world of religion, tends to somehow find itself buried within the confines of a formatic ritual. Practices, doctrines, and results tend to dominate. And…each of these three are certainly major tenets of an authentic belief system. Yet the difference I’m addressing is more of whether we […]

Why Sheep Need A Shepherd

Written on May 27, 2019 at 8:54 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 […]

Ya Know Why We Should Like Every Day?

Written on May 21, 2019 at 11:28 am, by

Don’t you get it? Faith in God isn’t about religious stuff. It’s about authentic living; I mean real living! We each have our specifics as to why we should like every day. I’ll give you one of mine just in case it would give you a boost. I like today because I like new. I […]

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 […]
