Overcoming the Peril of Non-commitment

September 15, 2019

We live in the age of excessive multiple choices for everything from television channels to grocery items to just about everything in life, so it’s no wonder people have trouble making a choice because there’s always something that could be better. All that leads to a real lack of devotion or commitment in just about […]

Problems – Problems – Problems

September 6, 2019

As we saw last week, our work – whatever we do – is a gift from God.  If that is so, we may ask the question, “then why are there so many problems at my job?” The answer is found in the declaration of judgment given to Adam by God after Adam disobeyed God. Genesis […]

Your Work Matters To God

August 26, 2019

Next time you feel your work doesn’t matter or you are stuck doing what seems to be a meaningless task, remember this: you were designed to work. Genesis 1:26–27 (ESV) — 26 Then God said, “Let us make man in our image, after our likeness. And let them have dominion over the fish of the […]

To Change or Not To Change

August 19, 2019

Einstein once said that “insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.”  The question is this: if you are not getting the results you want are you willing to change what you are doing? There was once a cigarette ad campaign featuring a person with a black eye and […]

Empower Your Willpower

August 12, 2019

How’s your willpower? Most people complain that they are giving into the cry for comfort and instant gratification in life instead of the determination to do what is necessary to lose weight, get in shape, or even fight off various additions to hurtful temptation in life. Willpower defined is “the control exerted to do something […]

The Burden Of Bitterness

August 5, 2019

What has you feeling really weighed down? The events of life bring many challenges, one of which is fighting the ongoing feeling of bitterness toward someone who has done us wrong – whether knowingly or unintentionally. Bitterness is a heavy burden that our minds, emotions, and our bodies were not designed to tolerate, but all […]

The Key To A Comeback

July 29, 2019

We all like to celebrate those who come back after a fall, a defeat, or any setback. It’s probably because we all identify with defeat of some sort and we all struggle with coming back after we’ve had a setback of one kind or another. The question is how do you “pick yourself up, dust […]

Stop and Consider This

July 22, 2019

There’s an expression in the 50th Psalm where God calls out those who do not pay attention to Him or His word as He says, “You thought I was altogether like yourself…” What a mistake to try to bring down God to make Him out to be like us or to “dumb down His word […]

Recognized For Faithfulness

July 15, 2019

We would all like to be recognized for something. Some would like be known for their talent, others their success, and maybe others for the number of friends but there is one area where anyone can be recognized no matter what level of skill, talent or opportunity you have, although very few achieve this recognition. […]

No Grumbling

July 8, 2019

As we in the United States of America recently celebrated our independence and our provision of free speech, we heard many people using the occasion to grumble about one thing or another. Granted many things have changed in the country since the signing of the declaration of independence but before you grumble, and tear down […]
