    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Running On Empty”

    Posted on March 12, 2018

    Most men will admit to it, some women will, but most all of us have in some way been running on empty. You know the scene. You are driving and your gas gauge says empty and you look and figure it has a little space to go before it’s really empty so you keep going, […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Overcoming Weariness”

    Posted on February 26, 2018

    It’s a phenomenon how Christians take on responsibility and seem to find joy in serving the Lord, no matter how menial the task, then out of the blue they find what they are doing a weariness. It happens in all levels of Christian service, from those who help clean up to those who lead. It’s […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Entrusting Everything To God”

    Posted on February 19, 2018

    As you view the scene of darkness when the Lord Jesus Christ was on the cross, you hear Him cry, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” However, before He dies, Luke records His words, “Father into Your hands I commit my spirit.”

    What a contrast! Of course, during the time in which […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Encouragement for The Encourager”

    Posted on February 12, 2018

    Do you consider yourself to be an encourager? There are many promises in the Word of God for those who take the time to encourage others.

    Proverbs 11:25 (ESV) — 25 Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered.

    Notice God says the principle is simple: you seek to […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Needed Interruption”

    Posted on January 29, 2018

    Proverbs 3:5–6 (ESV) — 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.

    There are times when living by Proverbs 3:5&6 takes a great deal of faith to “trust in the Lord with […]


    The Weekly PowerBreak – “Wait, Wait, Wait”

    Posted on January 22, 2018

    Whenever I set out to write a new PowerBreak, I check out what I had written three years prior and how applicable that principle would be for now. When I examined the PowerBreak for this week in 2015, I couldn’t help but think the principle of being proactive while waiting is needed today as much […]


    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 […]
