The Courage Quotient

April 22, 2019

It takes great courage to be locked in to doing the right thing in life. Let’s face it, it’s easy to go with the flow of society and be turned from side to side when it comes to morals and standards. It’s interesting to inspect the times that God calls for courage in the Bible. […]

Half Baked

April 15, 2019

There is a sense in which we try to hurry things along, or we get impatient in waiting, or we simply stop a concentrated effort too soon. You might say we tend to present things in a half-baked way. Can you imagine pulling a cake from the oven after only half the baking time then […]

Don’t Forget To Remember

April 8, 2019

Celebration as we remember events and blessings is a part of life that we too often neglect. Prior to my one breath from death experience in 2005, I tended to walk over celebration times in my haste to keep going toward a bigger goal. What happens, as I found, is we arrive at a point […]

An Antidote To Discouragement

April 1, 2019

Everyone faces times of discouragement. Even the most positive person on the face of the earth faces discouraging times. Remember Jesus warned us about such? John 16:33 (ESV) — 33 I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I […]

Nothing seems to be a harder blow than to feel rejected. There’s something in all of us that wants to feel acceptance and to feel recognized.   When a friend, associate, or people you think would show you some consideration don’t – it really makes you feel rejected. Sometimes the feeling of rejection seems to mount. […]

Getting Beyond The Wall

March 18, 2019

Marathon runners call it “hitting the wall,” writers call it “writers block,” but call it what you will, it’s a mental block that leads you to stop what you are doing as if there is a literal obstacle in your way. It should be recognized that it could be other physical or mental influences that […]

Preparing For The Unexpected

March 11, 2019

As athletes prepare for competition, good coaches will also help their teams or clients prepare for the unexpected. Too many times a team or an athlete will prepare a certain way for a game or competition only to find the opponent has completely changed his game plan or something out of the ordinary happens during […]

Is there something in your life that needs to change? The doctor says, “In order to survive, you must change your eating habits!”  The financial advisor says, “In order to make the money you want you must change your strategy.”  The coach says, “In order to achieve your goals, you must make some changes in […]

Divine Delays

February 28, 2019

Everyone is in a hurry today and nothing seems to make us really angry more than facing a delay. Ever find yourself driving down the highway and coming upon a car going about 10 miles an hour slower than you and the other lane is packed with cars? It’s frustrating to say the least, but […]

The Trap Of The Minimum Daily Requirement

February 28, 2019

No matter what food your purchase you’ll find on the labeling the percentage of the minimum daily requirement (MDR) the product provides.  But where did this minimum daily requirement come from and how was it established?   Actually, the MDR was introduced during World War II as a means of providing the troops what would be […]
