I resigned from my full-time job about 3 months ago in mid-October.  A great company I had been with for almost 5 years had allowed another company to take over my particular site.  It had only been about 5 weeks since the takeover and my life had taken a 180Read More

God didn’t save us just to exist, and take up space. We have a purpose and work to do before we see His face.

So often we try so hard to help others.  Whether its by giving advice, writing a recommendation letter for a job, letting their kids carpool with yours to school, loaning them money in times of need, letting them sleep on your couch for a night or two, keeping them fromRead More

When you don’t know what to do, do what you know to do! A situation may be out of your control, or maybe you’ve exhausted your resources, pursued every possible avenue, sought help everywhere you could, and you have no clue what step to take next. All you can do isRead More

It’s so important to realize that the moment you decide to accomplish something, especially if its for God, that the enemy will try to do everything he can to distract you, so that he can steer you off course.  It’s even more important to realize that these distractions are notRead More

This morning I had one of my true “mirror moments”.  You know one of those days where the reality of life just hits you all at once.  You get a rush of negative thoughts that flood your brain and all of a sudden you feel like you’re alone, not inRead More

At what point are we as Christians going to start living our lives “with” God, rather than simply keeping Him on the sidelines and only “using” Him when we think we need Him or when it benefits us? God isn’t someone we should call on only in times of trouble, need, or desperation. Read More

This past week was my first week of getting back into the gym regularly, and Friday was the day I would meet my goal of working out for 5 days.  However, Friday morning I woke up an hour earlier than usual around 5 a.m. with a slight headache and couldn’tRead More

Sometimes the hardest thing to accept is that God is NOT always going to answer our prayers in the exact way that we want Him to. So often we submit our “microwaved prayers” to God, expecting our “microwaved blessings” as a result.  Listing every detail of what we want orRead More

Social media has had several “challenges” this past year – the Mannequin challenge, the Get Out Challenge, the Running Man challenge and so forth.  Then we’ve got all sorts of “challenges” in the workplace – diet and workout challenges, and weight loss competitions. We’ve also got all kinds of “stressRead More

I’m learning to extend more and more forgiveness to others. After all, God has forgiven me for ALL my sins.  Plus I may need someone else to forgive me one day too. FILED UNDER: Forgiveness

Why are we letting our feelings about the newly elected President Donald Trump dictate how we behave as Christians? Does the bible call for us to respond with anger, hatred, slander, protests, frustration, violence, vandalism, or disrespect towards our earthly authorities?   Once again, we allow the enemy to defeatRead More

Why do so many Christians today want to “experience” the power of God in their lives, but yet want little to nothing, to do with the source of that very power – the Word of God? It’s sad that most of us fail to realize just how much power weRead More

“Why do we think that God changes/adapts who He is and how he operates based on the time period, culture, society, or world in which we live?”  Indeed, our methods of conveying Christ will change/enhance especially with technology today….and praise be to God for allowing us countless ways of reachingRead More
