Men….get in the game. A friend of mine called and invited me for coffee one day…and told me that “there is not much time.” It kind of intrigued me…I didn’t if I was going to die today, or if I should warn people that I may be struck by lightning at any time…or if it meant that we never know how much time we have left. Either way….MEN…let’s get going…and make an impact. Make your “dash” mean something.

Life is Sacred….but do you know why?

January 25th, 2013 Day 348 I could try to wax eloquently about this topic, but I would be copying somebody else…like that is new.  Mostly I plagiarize from the Bible…which is legal…and recommended if you are discussing a topic about … Continue reading

Jesus the Chess Player…

January 24th, 2013 Day 347 I used to play chess a lot, and it is a great game, because at the end there is sometimes the opportunity to say “Checkmate.”  You have had the final move.  Game is over, conversation … Continue reading

We need a nation of repenters…

Day 346 I will get off of my soapbox after today…maybe, but I am just so incensed with the fact that churches across the nation think that God wants us to keep our “religion” to ourselves, and be inclusive of … Continue reading

You ARE the moral compass for our nation…

Day 345 Ezekiel 2:7 – But you shall speak My words to them whether they listen or not, for they are rebellious. (NASB) I don’t think that it can be clearer than that… But I was amazed the other day when … Continue reading

Everybody’s shot…get in and drive…

God doesn’t have a hiring freeze….

Day 290 We underestimate God completely.  It is amazing that we try to limit what He can do…and I have no idea why.  Why don’t we ask Him to show us the amazing things that He can do for us … Continue reading

I’d rather sink while trying….

Who is opening and closing your doors?

Day 253 We often get to roadblocks in life…and it is easy to give up.  Let’s face it…when we get to the frustration point…we do give up.  Oh wait a minute…then we pray!  Maybe that is something that we should … Continue reading

Pick up the trash….

Day 250 One of the most indicting things to me in my life is how easily it is for me to have the attitude that “someone else will do it.”  I was getting some bagels the other day, and there … Continue reading
