Who Do You See

Do you sometimes lack confidence?  You don’t feel like you have what it takes to get through life – much less today.  Well I promise you that our Father Jesus Christ has much more in mind for your life on this Earth than merely existing.  It’s amazing how quickly our adversary gets in our ear to tell us we can’t do something.  He helps us make unfair comparisons which make us feel seriously inadequate.  We […]

What Are You Waiting For – Go!!

It is truly amazing to see how our great God uses people from every walk of life to help glorify his name.  He uses his children in so many different ways.  The incredible thing is that right now as children of God we all have a gift.  We do not have to wait for a burning bush to tell us to act.  Each one of us has a purpose – something significant to offer.  Yet […]

What’s In A Name

It has been said a person’s life is represented by a dash on their tombstone.  Between a birth date and day of death we see a simple dash.  Well I’m thankful that while we are living we have an opportunity to be remembered for so much more than this.  Throughout our life we should put great value in what we are known for.  Not to gain the favor of men, but to honor our Lord […]

What’s In Your Diet?

Ever feel completely alone and unfulfilled?  Feel like nothing you do has any real meaning?  You can’t seem to fill the void in your life.  You can’t find peace or rest.  Many of us are on a lifelong search – a search for something that fills the emptiness inside.  We often look to the things of this world to find it.  We seek everything, every relationship, every experience in this world but I promise you […]

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 […]

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, […]
