Keeping It Simple

So many times we try to make life more complicated than it is.  Why is that? Some of my examples include the fact that I’ve been saying for years that I want my kids to grow up with a servant’s heart, but I’ve done nothing to make this happen.  I’ve prayed for wisdom, but refused […]

Toeing the Line

Living wisely is hard to do.  (In case you didn’t know that!) It’s not that having or attaining knowledge is all that hard, but the humility that comes along with wisdom throws most of us for a loop! I don’t know about you, but I don’t find myself being all that humble very often. In […]

A New Day

When the days become more like drudgery than opportunities – you know something needs to change. Change?  How about winning the lottery?  Moving to the beach with servants at our beckon call?  What about a life on Easy Street? Now that is what I call some good changes!!! HA! Most of the time we think […]

Thinking Straight

Have you ever found yourself at a crossroads with no idea which way to head?  Have you been bombarded with tasks, appointments, and projects then realize there is no way you can possibly complete all of them…but which ones do you give the boot and which ones should you do? You are far from alone! […]

Obligation

Each time you read my blog you get the inside scoop on my personal story of Christian living.  Sadly, my life is full of ups and downs and downright failures, but all in all I hope it is clear that I put forth great effort to live a life that is pleasing to God on […]

You Might Need to Pray More!

I heard an awesome story on Sunday about a successful man who at the age of 52 was called by God to serve in El Salvador.  He basically left everything he’d ever known behind and moved to an ‘unknown land’ (well, at least to him) and began doing things that helped the people of the […]

Recharging

How are those New Year’s resolutions going for you?  Are you sticking to them?  Have you fallen off the wagon?  Are you pretending like you never made them in the first place?? If you are hanging your head in shame…don’t get too upset because the average length of resolutions is three DAYS (my pastor threw […]

Wisdom

Since last week I wrote about commitment, I thought it would only be fair that today I expand upon the topic of ‘wisdom’ because I really don’t think we can make, much less follow through with commitments, goals, objectives or resolutions unless we are fueled by wisdom. Look carefully then how you walk, not as […]

Commitment

The start of a New Year brings about much discussion of resolutions, goals, plans, objectives and getting ourselves motivated to make this year better than the last. Clearly, the year ahead is on my mind because I’ve already written two blogs in the past few weeks about making plans and moving on.  Honestly, I thought […]

Decisions

Have you ever had a decision that you just didn’t want to make?  Did the list of pros and cons equal out to a point where you didn’t have a clue which way to go?  Were you so confused by decision time that you wanted to dig a hole…and climb in? Decisions can be tough.  […]
