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 […]

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 […]


March 25, 2019

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 […]
