  • You Can’t Save The World In a Bad Mood

    You Can’t Save The World In a Bad Mood

    I’m in a bad mood.  Not a great place to be.  Lately I have just felt stagnant, like nothing is happening.  Like I’m going through the motions and I have nothing to go to.  Like I know where I am supposed to be and I’m not there yet. I am working my butt off and […]

    200% Guarantee

    I received a letter in the mail from Sam’s Club, informing me I might have purchased contaminated spinach from their store.  What was the contamination?  E-Coli. Not something I want to experience anytime soon. The letter said to take the spinach back to the store for a full refund.  Most people would have probably just […]

  • What Is Truth?

    What Is Truth?

    What is truth? Those are the words of Pilate to Jesus right before he sent the Son of God off to be crucified. What is truth? In today’s word, the truth has become relative.  If it doesn’t work for you, it isn’t truth.  If they are doing something different from you, it is their truth. […]

  • Love is a Choice.  Choose Love.

    Love is a Choice. Choose Love.

    I have written before on this topic (click here), but it has been on my heart lately, so I need to revisit it. Is love a choice?  Or is it an emotion? Think about it.  In regard to family?  Friends?  Spouse? Think about it.  In regard to annoying family?  Betraying friends.  Distant spouse? Is love […]

    Hope Shines In The Dark If You DARE to Believe.

    Hope SHINES in the dark if you DARE to believe. He is coming, He Shines.  The darkness cannot hide. Wrongs become right, darkness to light. Dare. To. Believe. His. Shine. Hope Shines in the dark. Do you believe this? It is painful to watch the news anymore.  Just painful.  It there isn’t a tragedy that […]

  • Our Nativity – Not Real Accurate

    Our Nativity – Not Real Accurate

    A few years ago I thought I needed to get more nativities.  You know, Jesus in the manger, the young strapping shepherds, the wise men, the donkey.  All that jazz.  Now I have a little different understanding.    Sometimes I look at nativities and just laugh.  Jesus, smiling and happy, more like a one year […]

    Be Thankful In Everything – Especially Thy Kingdom Come.

    “Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!  Let your gentle spirit be known to all men.  The Lord is near you.  Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will […]

    It Is Always Darkest Before The Dawn

    Last night I dreamed Dak disappeared.  I couldn’t find him.  Two days pass.  I still can’t find him.  There is a sick feeling in my gut, a grief I can’t even describe, a constant nagging, and a horrific sense of incompleteness. I wake up and realize in my dream I had substituted Dak for America. […]

    When the “What Ifs” Overwhelm – Station Yourself On The Watchpost.

    This past week I have heard about Habakkuk twice.   Habakkuk is not someone you tend to hear about too often.  And if God puts something odd in your face like that, you need to sit up and take notice.   I know for a fact God was using Habakkuk to confirm something for me. […]

  • Abide In The TRUTH of HIs WORD.  It Leads To LIFE.

    Abide In The TRUTH of HIs WORD. It Leads To LIFE.

    In my last post, I talked about abiding.  Listen to this verse. “If you abide in my WORD, you are truly my disciples.  And you will know the truth, and the truth shall set you free,”  John 8:31-32 If you want to abide in HIM, you must abide in the WORD.  Why? “And the WORD became flesh, […]
