What You Take for Granted

In all labor there is profit (Proverbs 14:23). All labor. Not just the kind whose wages you can deposit into your checking account. Unfortunately, that’s the one that gets the most praise. That’s the one everybody focuses on. All the other labor gets pushed into the background, irrelevant, doesn’t matter. We spend a great deal […]

Beating Your Bully

Understanding the Bully Weakness drives a bully. It sets something off in her. If you ask her (or him) why she treats her target the way she does, her answer would be either exaggerated or senseless. It could be because she doesn’t really know the answer or she is ashamed of it. Whatever her reason, […]

Seeing the Face of Perfect Evil

Did you really see what you thought you saw? How is it that you can see so plainly what others can not? Oh, the frustration you feel when you try to get others to see it too. It’s like being in a Lifetime movie where you can see the villain and everybody thinks you’re crazy…or […]

Live Right Here Right Now

Put no limitations on what God can do in your life right where you are. Your circumstances may not be ideal, but don’t let them rob you of living. If you can see beyond what you don’t have, you can learn to enjoy what you do have. Oftentimes you possess more than you know. Jesus […]

Choose Your Side

Choose this day who you will serve…(Joshua 24:15) Because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. (Revelation 3:16) You can’t stand in the middle or play both sides and expect to prosper. You must choose a side. There is no neutrality in the world of progress […]

It’s a thin line between putting your faith in works and walking by faith in God. If I just mentioned faith rather than faith in God, it would cover a broad spectrum. A person can have faith in a lot of things, including himself, and that faith motivates him to do whatever he believes. What […]

Who is “Blessing” You?

It matters who “blesses” you, who gives you a taste of the good life. I have found that people who have something you don’t, but want something you have will give you samples to draw you in. It could be access to people who can get you into places you couldn’t get into on your own. […]

Today the Promise Is

The promises of God are yea and amen (See 2Cor. 1:20). They are guaranteed, a done deal. Because it is impossible for God to lie, He does everything He says He will do despite changes in climate, the world and culture. His word never comes back void. Yet though He promises victory and triumph, we […]

Seek Him Like Your Dreams

If you seek Him, you will find Him when you seek Him with all your heart and soul (See Deut. 4:29). Simple, but not easy. It’s easy to give up on finding God when you seek Him halfheartedly. Anything worth having is not easy to obtain. If it were it wouldn’t be worth much. What […]

Ears to Hear

Truth can be a bitter pill to swallow and rebuke can make you choke. The last thing any of us wants to hear is someone else telling us what’s wrong with us or correcting a behavior we didn’t have a problem with. While it is true we cannot receive criticism from just anyone, we must […]
