The Importance Of Talking To Yourself

December 9, 2019

Dr. D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones brought up a very good question in his book, Spiritual Depression – It’s Cause and Cure – “Have you realized that most of your unhappiness in life is due to the fact that you are listening to yourself instead of talking to yourself?” That is a great question because too many […]

Mind Boggling

December 2, 2019

When is the last time you had your mind blown? I mean the time you were overwhelmed with something so outstanding you just couldn’t believe the fact that you really experienced it. I realize we live in the age of the fake, where virtual reality has taken over what is real. So, I do not […]

The Trap Of Convenience

November 25, 2019

There’s a scene in the book of Acts in which the Apostle Paul was in prison yet the Roman ruler Felix and his wife would send for him to hear what he had do say.  After a while, they found it “inconvenient” so they put him off. Acts 24:24–25 (KJV) — 24 And after certain […]

Setting Margins

November 18, 2019

We live with a set of margins every day. Your word processor operates on margins, your phone texting has margins, even the road upon which you drive has margins. So we’ve learned to live with margins. We live on the edge but there is a boundary that we know when we’ve gone too far or […]

A Sure Anchor For The Soul

November 11, 2019

Where do you turn when things get tough in life? If you turn to the promises of God, your hope is in a safe place. If you turn to anything other than the promises of God, your hope is like building a house on sand. Hebrews 6:17–20 (ESV) — 17 So when God desired to […]

A Matter of Priority

November 4, 2019

Have you established or written down your priorities in life? Even if you haven’t written them down, they are established because if you did an analysis of your daily schedule, you can see what is really important in your life. When something is important, we find a way to do it or be involved in […]

The Power of “I CAN” in “I CAN’T”

October 28, 2019

Just three miles to go to complete 26.2 miles and I was feeling pretty good. It was a brisk Thanksgiving morning in Atlanta, and I was thinking of God’s goodness and things for which I was thankful. All of a sudden, I came upon a drill sergeant who was trying to convince a young man, […]

A Mighty Fortress

October 21, 2019

There is a famous hymn written by Martin Luther around the 1500’s based upon Psalm 46 called, A Mighty Fortress. The hymn became the battle hymn of the reformation in a way of encouragement to all as they faced persecution of various sorts for standing up for the word of God. This began when Martin […]

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.
