Not God… Do you ever do something just because everyone else is doing it? What I find most interesting is, those who are Christians, we are against looking like the world; doing what the world is doing. Yet, in Christian settings we can quickly start doing what everyone else is doing – just because everyone else is doing it – and find nothing wrong with … Continue reading My Church Gives Me Value
How do you feel? In yesterday’s post I touched on the issues we face grappling to believe we are forgiven. One of the reasons it can be hard to believe we are forgiven by God has a lot to do with the misdeeds of others. Do you ever start to believe God doesn’t love you or has really forgiven you based on someone’s mistreatment? I … Continue reading When People Mistreat You…
You’re Forgiven… I spend a lot of time trying to influence people and to help them live out their God-given abilities. But there are times I forget that my words (or God’s Words) might sound inspiring, but often we don’t move ahead and live out our God-given abilities is because we are still living in our past. We think God could not use us with … Continue reading Why Don’t You Believe…
Think again! The other day I was reading during my Bible and prayer time about the life of Josiah. His life was great – with an unfortunate end. It’s actually pretty sad to read.

He … Continue reading That Pagan Didn’t Hear From God
What Will Your Life Mean?

Let that sink in Yesterday was my birthday (Happy Birthday to me) and I wanted to say something on social media about being awesome. I mean – about ME being awesome. I know, right? Who do I think I am? I could not come up with the right words to sound humbled by the fact that although I am a sinner saved by grace – … Continue reading Are You Bold Enough To Post How Awesome You Are?
Yes, but stay wise I heard someone say once that we are too inundated with the “poor me” and “this battle is not mine”, mindset in our culture today. In a Christian setting the majority of messages you hear preached are about “overcoming”, “you can do it”, “don’t give up!” I agree we should focus on the good happening all around us and not be … Continue reading Should You Stop Feeling Sorry for Yourself?
I want God to fix this… 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus. Do you ever wonder how you’re supposed to react when things happen that don’t go your way? By nature, I am a very determined person and when things don’t go my way, I get very … Continue reading I Don’t Want to Pray!
You might be surprised When you face troubles and suffering, what do you do? When your plans don’t go according to your will, what do you do? Do you seek the advice of the world, or do you turn to God? The Google of that Day King Ahaz had a good godly example in his life from his father King Jotham. 2 Chronicles 27:6 So … Continue reading Who’s Your Real King?
Hold onto your hat! Luke 16:10 “If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities.” Do you ever wonder why your social media friends don’t support your endeavors? It’s strange right? They’re your friends. You have a good cause. Yet, for the most part they … Continue reading Here’s Why Your Social Media Friends Don’t Support You…
