Write the Vision and Make it Plain 

As I prepared our home to go be seen by potential buyers, I came across a somewhat pencil-smeared sheet of writing paper on the side of our fridge with a host of pictures, magnets, and other announcements.  The sheet of paper was kind of buried behind the other items so I had not seen itContinue reading “Write the Vision and Make it Plain “

The Midnight Shift

I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For You alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety. (Ps 4.8) Most of us work conventional hours known as the “first shift”. We work a common 9-5 type of schedule. These are the workers most known within the organization. Everyone knows that they work andContinue reading “The Midnight Shift”

If Hercules (Son of Zeus) was Thought to be so Powerful; How Much More Powerful am I?

This morning as I was praying I was reminded of the movie of The Legend of Hercules.  The movie is about Greek mythology which I admittedly really enjoy even though I do not believe in Greek gods.  Hercules was brought up as a fully human man with no knowledge that he was the son ofContinue reading “If Hercules (Son of Zeus) was Thought to be so Powerful; How Much More Powerful am I?”

Become the Blessing

For the past week, I have been praying for a few people.  I have prayed for people I know personally and some I have never met.  Some prayers can only be answered by God; yet some can be answered by God’s angels here on earth.  Angels do not have to be heavenly beings but theyContinue reading “Become the Blessing”

One Gift You Should Get Everyone on Your List

When I think about Christmas, I think about the greatest gift we could have even been given – the gift of Christ.  Every year my mom (still at this age) asks me what I want for Christmas – my siblings ask me too. At a point in life where my greatest wants and needs cannotContinue reading “One Gift You Should Get Everyone on Your List”

Fireworks because I am not self-governing

Today, Independence Day, the 4th of July, the great U.S. day of celebration.  This is the day that marks our country’s independence from Great Britain.  No more is the U.S. governed by British law.  The nation rejoices with parties, and great food and fireworks — we are independent.  We are free — We are self-governing.Continue reading “Fireworks because I am not self-governing”

You want to be great, but do you want to be a blessing?

Genesis 12:2 “And I will make of you a great nation and I will bless you and I will make your name great, and you will be a blessing.” We all want to be great don’t we? We all want to do great things, have great things, and fulfill our dreams. We have aspirations andContinue reading “You want to be great, but do you want to be a blessing?”

A Thief Called Fear

                                                                                                                        John 10:10 NIV The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. It’s funny, some of the things that I desire most to do, I am most fearful of. Literally, I will do those things by myself and enjoyContinue reading “A Thief Called Fear”

You are blessed!

The other day, I was looking for a particular scripture and I came upon more scriptures than I could count with the word blessed. Many report that the word blessed alone is used the in KJV 302 times. As Christians, we seek to look more like God — to read and speak the word ofContinue reading “You are blessed!”

Laptop – Check, Smartphone – Check, God’s Light – Check

“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they mayContinue reading “Laptop – Check, Smartphone – Check, God’s Light – Check”
