  • 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…

  • Today we will be discussing the third and final step of this three part series on goal setting. This a different view on the subject since most thoughts on the matter seem to be writing on goals for things and general desires. I am focusing on a biblical view of goal setting. Since Mankind has fallen, God has been in…

  • In "Don't Do It" Part 1 I told you not to write your goals until you read my blog on the subject. I talked about how our thoughts play a big part in our ability to set and reach goals. I mentioned we need to align our thinking to the process of achieving goals. The following are the steps I suggested we take…

  • Stop! Wait! Put that pen down! Don't do it! Do not write your goals down. At least not until you have read this blog. I've gone through this for to many years. Setting goals for the new year and failing at them. Here is how I now look at goals and goal setting. (Short version) Every thing that man has done,…

  • Twas the night before Christ was born and all through the barn,  all the creatures were stirring wondering who these two were. Mary was frightened and Joseph unsure of what the heck God was doing. It seemed like a blur.  They had to leave home  to give birth in a barn.   It didn't make…

  • Twas the night before Christ was born and all through the barn, all the creatures were stirring wondering who these two were. Mary was frightened and Joseph unsure, It seemed like a blur. They had to leave home to give birth in a barn. It didn't make a bit of sense. The Redeemer born in a barn. And it was anything…

  • Recently the season of Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s started to invade my mind I had to wonder about value of the spirit of the holidays.   It seems that Thanksgiving has turned into a starting line for an Olympic sprint for the rest of the season.   The advertisers start to tease us with the…

  • The heart beats faster with every gaze into the eyes of your love. Your hands sweat and it's harder to breath. The excitement level is near maximum capacity and you wonder how you could ever live another year, day or moment without the love. It's beyond passion and purpose. It's what you were made for. It's…

  • Am I hearing the sound of applause? Do I hear the sound of victory? Do I ever hear the sound of praise for a good days work? Does my heart ever shout out loud simply because I took action toward my purpose in life? Does my heart ever give me a standing ovation because I did something courageous. These are the questions…

  • It's true. I see dead people. It's not a daily occurrence but on average every couple of weeks or so. I have to wonder why I am privy to see them. I didn't ask for this and I certainly didn't expect it to happen. When it first happened, about 3 months ago, I was quite shocked and was very moved emotionally. It…

  •  It was the same pattern as before. Subtle, stealth and snipe are the staple words for how He works. It’s His modus operandi to apply maximum damage with little visibility. Who is this guy? He is God. But not just any god, He is the God of army angels. In the beginning He spoke the stars, moon, sun and earth…

  • Two men were escaping from their enemy. At one point they made a small make shift raft in a river so it would help pull them down stream. It was working pretty well until they realized there was a waterfall not to far in front of them. They suddenly panicked as the water current got stronger and was pulling them faster…

  • I recently read a very interesting article about people who live in, “The City of The Dead”. The City of the Dead is a four-mile stretch of tombs and mausoleums in Cairo, Egypt. The article states that tens of thousands live in the tombs without water or electricity. Yet they have a satellite dish and…
