Spilt Milk

They say your past helps shape who you are today.  While I agree we should learn from our mistakes, we should also not allow our past to take away our ability to enjoy the blessings we have today.  Some of us are continually burdened down with the weight of our past mistakes.  We sometimes have a difficult time forgiving ourselves even though God has forgiven us and released us from this bondage. All of us, […]

Comparison

How many of us find ourselves constantly comparing our lives with those around us?  You may say at first that you don’t, but if you take time to really consider this question most of us find we compare all the time.  Whether it’s our possessions, appearances, performance or circumstances – we are prone to compare our life to those around us.  God’s word instructs us to not compare with others here on Earth. 2 Corinthians […]

Remembrance

My whole life I have been a big proponent of not looking back on the past, but instead focusing on the future.  I know we are to learn from our mistakes, but we can’t change the past – just move forward.  While I believe this is generally a good approach to have, it’s also important for us to take time and reflect on the past.  I think the main reason we are reluctant to look […]

Bitter Is The Root

Forgiveness is a subject commonly talked about today.   I often ask myself why it is so commonly discussed.  Are we really that mean to each other that we need to be taught this lesson over and over?  The answer is – Yes.  We are sinners that make mistakes every day.  These transgressions sometimes cause great hurt to others and hence the need to forgive.  For me personally, it is much more difficult to forgive a […]

Narrow Is The Way

How many of us have spent a large part of our lives trying to be like everyone else.  From an early age we are pressured by society to fit into the social norm.  I mean who wants to be the weird kid right??  This mentality sometimes stays with us into our adult lives.  A lot of us are still trying to be like everyone else.  We wear the same clothes, go to the same places […]

All The World’s A Stage

Most of my adult life I’ve heard the line – all the world’s a stage.  Until recently I have honestly never really stopped to consider what it means.  To me it has always been some Shakespeare line dealing with the theater which didn’t apply to my life.  Then one day I realized I needed to get over myself and focus on something much bigger than me.  Remember we are not here to serve our self, […]

Just Believe

I have a confession to make.  Often my faith grows weak and sometimes disappears completely.  How many of us have experienced this.  Right when things seem to be going our way and getting better something goes wrong and everything seems to fall apart.  As we go through life our faith continually gets challenged.  When we see a young child dying of cancer, when a father loses his job or when your church is divided and loved ones decide […]

Our Potter’s Hands

We’ve all faced bitter disappointment in life.  Sometimes the storms are so great we struggle to make it through the day, but one of the best things about bad days is that they end.  When I was a young boy my grandfather gave me a birthday card with a ship in the midst of a storm on the cover.  In the card he guaranteed me the storms of life would come – he was right.   […]

Into The Lion’s Den!!

 OK, so what does fear mean to you.  I know it is different things to different people, but we all seem to recognize fear when we feel it.  Breaking it down there seems to be a few basic types of fear.   Whether it is the fear of loss, the fear of being rejected or the fear of losing control, some of us are living in constant fear.  For me personally, one of my […]
