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 […]

What’s In Your Hand?

July 1, 2019

Too many times we do not attempt great things for God in service to Him because we look down on what we have to offer and figure it’s not much so we pull back and fail to serve falling into the trap of the excuse that we’re not good enough or talented enough. STOP THE […]

Enjoying The Overflow

June 24, 2019

Psalms 23:5 (ESV) You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. When is the last time you enjoyed the overflow? David assures us in Psalm 23 that our cup CAN overflow!  It is one of the benefits of staying close to the […]

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 […]
