You Aren’t The Only One Who Is Afraid

Written on August 27, 2019 at 8:55 am, by

At first, I didn’t know that every person fights an identical demon; fear. To me the world was divided into the haves and the have nots. You were either one or the other. And, neither could help it…so I assumed. You were either gifted with confidence or you were not. Case. Closed. But I learned […]

Christianity In Conflict

Written on August 20, 2019 at 1:29 pm, by

Tension reigns throughout the hallways of Church. It is more subtle, I believe, than stark. Yet, the strain should be addressed in hopes of the call of God gaining fruitful momentum within society at large. The conflict? I see churches doing what we can to sell ourselves in ways that would draw community. Who doesn’t […]

Try Not to be Afraid of Other People

Written on August 13, 2019 at 3:25 am, by

I know this topic may sound elemental… because it is. There is a matter embedded within all of us that requires focus; deliberate exercisilational concentration. Everyone deals with some significant stress of being afraid of other people. There are not exceptions. I was this person. Fear increased because I devoted my mental energy to calculating […]

God… The Experiencer

Written on August 6, 2019 at 10:55 am, by

Tough, even treacherous, stuff happens. Yet, God assures us that we need not waste our time being discouraged. Really? Really? With all you face in disappointment and hardship? Does God even have a clue? Yes. He. Does. He experienced us via the Jesus Project. The Jesus assignment was to find out what it’s like being […]

His Way… Or The My Way?

Written on August 2, 2019 at 11:55 am, by

His Way… Or The My Way? The System of God is not casual. Neither is it of selectionary ease. It isn’t handy; just hanging around for its principles to be snared when in need of one here or another there. The Kingdom of God is diametrically opposed to human wisdom’s insistence. Enter… a new way […]

How to Be a Genuine Help

Written on July 23, 2019 at 9:09 am, by

Help. Help is one of our most powerful terms. When in a bind of any kind, we turn to the ones who can… help. We don’t need interference nor do we need obstruction. We strugglers want good helpers; pure and simple. And guess who is likely the best help? For any specific need, the person […]

Leaders Are To Spend Disruption

Written on July 16, 2019 at 11:02 am, by

The average person can fair well during smooth waters. Not only may they be looking good at their assignment, but these are usually content. This, however, isn’t necessarily a mark of leadership. It’s more like being normalistic in nature. Leaders are effective in their roles due to a significant trait. These men and women seize […]

Watch Your Language

Written on July 8, 2019 at 12:19 pm, by

Curbing our tongues is a command often used when someone is using words which are harsh…including cursing. Such caution is warranted that we be careful as to what expressions we choose when found to be in quite stressful situations. Yet, there’s more to it. God is consistent in His call to us that we watch […]

How to Forgive Others

Written on July 2, 2019 at 8:38 am, by

Animosity can be a creeping villain within our hearts. We simply must curb its progress. I lived too many of my years feeling superior to others. I was wrong. The Apostle Paul shut me down and opened me up…all in one breath. He insisted that he was the chiefest of sinners. This personal awareness for […]

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 […]
