No Fear, don’t run!

Walk don't run

Walk don’t run

What do I mean by run? Why do we run? What benefit is it to stop running? What I mean by running is the act of rushing in our lives in an act of fear to obtain, experience, observe all we can in the least amount of time possible or for fear of losing what we already possess.… Read the rest

Jesus and his apostles

When you think about love what do you think? Your children? Your husband or wife? What about a potential mate? Love for your country? What if you feel alone and unloved? It happens. We can feel lonely, like there is something missing deep down inside us. Maybe, it always seems that were searching for love but can’t find it.… Read the rest

Father and Son

There are five things that every father should teach his son(s):

Number one: Success is not a goal one obtains but an attitude that one displays. One may hope for change, but change is not possible unless one is willing to change one’s own attitude. For example, people may cause us grief, but we cannot change the heart of people.… Read the rest

Cain and Abel

Brothers Keeper

You passed someone with a disabled vehicle on the side of the road, but he can handle it himself. You have a lot on your plate, you’re dealing with a lot and work is tough. You see a coworker struggling but you figure that person knew what he was getting into so you leave him alone. Your next-door neighbor needs some food but you figure they shouldn’t spend so frivolously, so you decide they deserve it.… Read the rest

Big Bang Booming – Back to the Future

The big bang

Then God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. This ancient description of the creation of the universe found in the Book of Genesis may be accurate after all. The big bang theory describes the beginning of the universe as having been precipitated from an infinitesimally small point. In this small volume, all matter and energy was concentrated until its contents exploded in either a smooth expansion or an incredibly violent energetic explosion that formed the planets, stars and galaxies.… Read the rest

A Unified Christian Church?

We live in a fragmented society, suffering its consequences. We fight about politics, taxes, civil rights, health care, jobs, the national debt, faith and just about everything else. Discourse is critical in defining what we consider as priorities for our society and then is required in deciding how to develop long-lasting solutions. What I have noticed, as of late is that a paralysis has developed on getting anything meaningfully accomplished at this level.… Read the rest

Because You don’t have to Start Fresh to Have a Fresh Start!

Each New Year brings us new experiences; new hopes, new dreams, and hopefully we learn more than we did the year before. No one is perfect; if we were, we would not be human. We have flaws and we make mistakes, but how we view those mistakes can determine whether or not we learn from them or make them over and over again.… Read the rest

The 99 sheep

In the bible God says “obedience is better than sacrifice”. I read that all the time. I thought I had a grasp on it until we started walking down this road again with the second transplant. God really has given me such a clearer picture of that statement and I want to run out of the room and say “no more!”.… Read the rest

Acts 3:6  “Then Peter said, ‘Silver and gold have I none; but such as I have give I thee: In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth rise up and walk.'” The New American Standard translation says it like this…Acts 3:6 “But Peter said, ‘I do not possess silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you: In the name of Jesus Christ the Nazarene walk!'”

This is a very well know verse of Scripture from the book of Acts, there is even a song we used to sing back in the day.… Read the rest

Seed in hand

Why isn’t your prayer being answered? Good question, maybe it will but not right now. Why do you have to wait when you are really in need, why must you wait so much? Well, we might have an answer to that question. Sometimes we just have to wait. Saul was told to wait by Samuel, the reason being so that Gods power could be shown glorified and magnified.… Read the rest

I have a background in Science and Healthcare and I am a Born-Again-Christian. I feel health, science and faith are NOT mutually exclusive but extremely inclusive. Faith causes a person to seek out help, to seek treatment. Faith helps a person believe in recovery from illness and hope for a better live. Health has shown faith can increase a person’s chances of survival and speed in the healing process.… Read the rest

Our World and its many wars

Lately the world has much to worry the masses over. Most people know it only from minute glances at the news channels. It only takes a second to see bad reports covering everything from guerrilla wars, ethnic cleansing, arms races, earthquakes, world poverty, and of course the largest oil spill in human history. However, course there have been beautiful shining star examples of hope and love in the past few years of humanities compassion for each another.… Read the rest

As Creflo Dollar spoke on the Covenant of Increase, Offense and being offended is an enemy of increase. When you are afflicted do not be offended. Matthew 18:15 “If your brother sins, go and show him his fault in private; if he listens to you, you have won your brother.” -NASB

Here is a synopsis of the above verse by John Wesley:

18:15 But how can we avoid giving offence to some?… Read the rest

Sometimes when you have done all that can be done, when you have gone the extra mile you need to stand in faith and ask for what you need. When you have given it your all, when you have tried your best for your family and it is still not enough you need the Word and the Love of God to help you along.… Read the rest
