Paralysis From Over-Analysis

June 17, 2019

It sounds like a big title but here’s how it works. When you are making a decision, you do your due diligence and get all the facts. Instead of making the choice and taking the first step you stop and want more facts to examine. Pretty soon procrastination sets in because you can’t make a […]

Are You Ready For This?

June 10, 2019

We ask God to bless us, we believe God will bless us, but are we ready for God to bless us? What if God really did bless you with more finances, a better job, more people in your church, children, or whatever it is you’ve been asking God to provide? Are you prepared to handle […]

You Are Not Alone

June 3, 2019

The feeling of being alone when facing the struggles of life is like adding an even heavier load to the situation. God demonstrated this in the book of Ecclesiastes. Ecclesiastes 4:9–12 (ESV) — 9 Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil. 10 For if they fall, one will […]

Stuck On Stupid

May 27, 2019

This phrase “stuck on stupid” was made popular by a general who became a little perturbed from questions in a press conference that continued down a dead end. Think about it. That phrase really depicts how all of us fall into the trap of our own doing and fail to listen to good advice, particularly […]

Consider The Incline

May 20, 2019

What do you think of when you hear the word, “incline?” For a cyclist, they want to know the percent of incline they are going to have to climb. For the student, they may want to develop an inclination to study more or better. For the follower of Christ, they may think of their desire […]

From the Bottom to the Top

May 13, 2019

We all face circumstances in which we feel like we’ve hit the bottom. That’s a reality of life. Wouldn’t it be great to have a way to get out of the pit and find a way to the top? There are no instant cures, but the Bible is very clear about a way that takes […]

The Struggle With Having To Wait Is Waiting

May 6, 2019

As much as everyone seems to be in a hurry today, waiting has become a way of life. The week before a big race, the days after a presentation, or the struggles of finding direction all involve the hard part of life – WAITING. Waiting can be a positive or negative experience, depending on how […]

How Is Your Attitude?

April 29, 2019

Defeated or triumphant, that is the question. It’s easy to focus on what is wrong and on the negative things in life which leaves us living a life of settling for the defeated mode. For the Christian, to live triumphantly is not a matter of forcing oneself into a positive mental attitude that may be […]

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 […]
