To start something new…you need to consider the fact that YOU are new. Consider 2 Corinthians 5:17 – Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior and the author [...]
I used to like the line, “I always wanted to be a procrastinator…but never got around to it” until I realized how dangerous and stupid that is. It is so easy to do something tomorrow…or the next day. Because every day has things that demand our time, and take up all of the [...]
We live in a world where it is all about what “you” do…or what you have done…or what you will do. We make plans…small and big…and we know what is going to happen until they change…which happens frequently. Then life happens, and we are sitting around wondering what the heck to do. That [...]
Thanks to some good friends of mine…John and Nace for giving me the material for today’s blog. Yesterday, at our Tuesday morning bible study, where we are studying the life of David…Pastor Nace gave us a powerful challenge…and part of that was an analysis of the enemy…and what he is trying to do to you.

Will God yell at me if I mess up? The short answer is no. But here is the longer one.
Think about God. If He gives you something to do…He owes you all of the resources for whatever that “something” is to be wildly successful. BUT…remember, that doesn’t mean that it will happen [...]

Let’s face it….some days you just don’t feel like being encouraged…or encouraging anybody else. But back to the genesis of this entire 365 days of encouragement…that is the time that you find 3 people to encourage.
My Hero Hannah gave me the substance for me today to be able to do that. I [...]
Okay…we have been talking about food…when it is ripe…when it is good. We have been talking about God’s will…determining…searching…etc. The last thing is to get moving.
You can spend your entire life…searching…seeking…blah, blah, blah…and never actually “do anything.” I think Jesus puts it well when He talks about the good samaritan.
You have [...]
I admit up front that the buoys identified at the bottom, this is taken from a sermon by Lon Solomon, Senior Pastor at Mclean Bible Church…who is an excellent teacher! I think those guides are a great way to determine if you are on the track that God wants you to be on. [...]
This is probably the most paralyzing question in the world. It will keep more people on the sidelines than any question that I have ever heard. If we just sit around “seeking” out God’s will for our life…we are never actually doing it. In other words…we make it so hard that we never [...]
