    The Weekly PowerBreak – “The Now Factor”

    Posted on January 15, 2018

    Ever notice how many things we put off until “someday?” “Someday, I’ll get in shape.” “Someday, I’ll organize the garage.” “Someday, I’ll spend more time with the kids.” And the list goes on…

    If we aren’t careful we live our lives in the SOMEDAY mode and never enjoy the present. The Bible speaks of living […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Think about this…”

    Posted on January 8, 2018

    It’s never easy. If it were easy, then the motivation, the effort, nor the reward would be minimal. But that is not the case in serving the Lord Jesus Christ.

    2 Timothy 2:1–7 (ESV) — 1 You then, my child, be strengthened by the grace that is in Christ Jesus, 2 and what you have […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “To Blame Is To Be Lame”

    Posted on January 1, 2018

    It’s an old adage but as true today as it ever has been. So much so, that it’s appropriate to begin the year with a quip to encourage you not to play the “blame game.”

    Ever notice how everyone is quick to blame? Politicians blame the other party. Batters strike out and blame the umpire. […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “What’s The Big Deal?”

    Posted on December 25, 2017

    Many times, we seem to get pulled in a thousand directions at this time of the year and want to just stop and say, “What’s the big deal about everything?” and maybe we say that about Christmas. It needs to be noted that when the emphasis is all about consumerism, snowflakes, and anything but God […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Excuses, Excuses”

    Posted on December 18, 2017

    Have you ever noticed how quick people are to make excuses for their failures today, and if you question their excuse you seem to be unfair?

    Recently, I was stood up by a person who had a standing appointment with me for the purpose of discipleship. When I questioned him on his failure to show […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Make Every Effort”

    Posted on December 11, 2017

    There’s a standard today that is often seen from those who call themselves followers of Jesus Christ and the standard is mediocrity. Mediocrity can be defined as being in state of only ordinary or moderate quality; neither good nor bad; barely adequate. In other words, if you are doing things with an attitude of “just […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “What are you really saying?”

    Posted on December 4, 2017

    Is there a consistency of what you are portraying on Sunday mornings with what happens in your life the rest of the week? A pastor voiced concern recently about some of the people who sing on stage on the Lord’s Day and their Facebook posts through the week. The old saying that what you are […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Where’s your integrity?”

    Posted on November 27, 2017

    Proverbs 2:6–8 (ESV) — 6 For the Lord gives wisdom; from his mouth come knowledge and understanding; 7 he stores up sound wisdom for the upright; he is a shield to those who walk in integrity, 8 guarding the paths of justice and watching over the way of his saints.

    Have you ever asked, “Where’s […]


    The weekly PowerBreak – “What should I do?”

    Posted on November 20, 2017

    Seeking to find God’s will in any given situation is not meant to be as much a mystery as people make it out to be. The journey does begin with a spirit of humility. King Jehoshaphat expressed humility when the country was surrounded by enemies, so the king called for a nationwide time of fasting […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “God is Watching”

    Posted on November 13, 2017

    Knowing that God is omniscient (all knowing), may go over our heads until we stop and think about it as it concerns us and our activities. We cannot hide from God! And that means we cannot hide anything from God.

    Psalm 139:1–4 (ESV) — 1 O Lord, you have searched me and known me! 2 […]
