  • Where does the time go? Birthdays go from creep to leap as the years past. Work weeks drag and vacations fly by. Time is a ridiculously silly concept. Who thought of it? What good is it? It seems to put stressful boundaries on us and is a relentless taskmaster with our future. It waits for nothing or no one. It…

  • Psalm 42:7 (AMP) [Roaring] deep calls to [roaring] deep at the thunder of Your waterspouts; all Your breakers and Your rolling waves have gone over me. This is not a description of a gentle God. It sounds like God is trying to drown the writer with a mighty vengeance. I love this description and I need it to be true in…

  •  What do you want? John 5:12-13 They asked him, Who is the Man Who told you, Pick up your bed and walk? Now the invalid who had been healed did not know who it was, for Jesus had quietly gone away [had passed on unnoticed], since there was a crowd in the place.   I find it interesting that the man that…

  •   There is a very interesting story in John 5:1-9. 1LATER ON there was a Jewish festival (feast) for which Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 2Now there is in Jerusalem a pool near the Sheep Gate. This pool in the Hebrew is called Bethesda, having five porches (alcoves, colonnades, doorways). 3In these lay a great number…

  • There is something terribly wrong", ringed the voice in my head as I laid in the shredded lawn. I was semi-conscious and quite unsure of the cause of the accident I was in. It was sudden, quick and caught me off guard. It was the turn. It was sharper than expected and my tires couldn't keep me on the road at the…

  • If you’ve ever been a snowstorm you may have experienced a whiteout. In my experience in a whiteout, I couldn’t see very far in front of me and lost my sense of direction. There was so much snow and cloud cover, I could only see vague outlines of dark objects. I was surrounded by so much “white”,…

  • Proverbs 4:24 Put away from you false and dishonest speech, and willful and contrary talk put far from you. The last two weeks I talked about the strategies of the enemy after finding the call and purpose for your life. (You can find those two articles in the archives.) You will at some point realize the plans of God…

  •  Last week I talked about the first strategy of the enemy after finding the call and purpose for your life. You will at some point realize the plans of God are not small in any sense of the word. He has a grand plan and purpose to complete on this earth. It is a plan greater than man can comprehend and visualize. But…

  • The battle seemed a sure loss in his mind as the enemy receded to refortify its army. He laid his weary head uncomfortably on a stone to gather his thoughts and strategy for the next attack. As his eyes closed, retreat and surrender calmly invaded his internal perceptions and emotions of the battle at hand. They sang…

  • She walks with a painful limp, feet are blistered, legs burn with every step and her clothes are battle worn. Uncovered skin sluggishly bleeds from intruding jungle brush. Her weathered face and unkept hair paint a picture of unbridled determination. She holds two weapons; her machete to forge her own path and the memory…

  • Paul was a greedy thief. He was Bounty hunter paid to find Christians and take them to prison. Because of his testimony against them, they would be executed.He personally had the Apostle Stephen killed. The scales of injustice weighed heavily against him, yet, after his conversion, he wrote, “THEREFORE, [there is]…

  • John 17:18 The MESSAGE In the same way that you gave me a mission in the world, I give them a mission in the world.(Jesus) Mission: a. A special assignment given to a person or group b. A combat operation assigned to a person or military unit. It is clear. Jesus has given us an assignment, a mission or…

  • The curse of all curses will seek you out, torture and humiliate you. It berates you publicly and entrances you into believing its' sinister story. Its’ ploy is to keep you prisoner within the falsity of your self-perception. It entices you to marry into its extended family; which includes baggage of a hellish,…

  • Disappointment and failure is all I felt as I thought back about 2014.   I kept trying to find some tangible evidence that I had a victorious year.   Did I set my goals to high? Did I ask for too much? Did I miss God on this one?   You see, I honestly felt 2014 would be my year so I declared it boldly…

  •  I’ve heard it for years. The “Blame Game”. Family, friends and co-workers blame, blame, blame. I did it for many years.  But what good does it do? Does it somehow solve problems? Does it strengthen relationships? Does it insure a strong future for you or others? Of course not.  So why…
