  • The Abominable Union

    Do you indeed speak righteousness, you silent ones? Do you judge uprightly, you sons of men? No, in heart you work wickedness; you weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth (Ps. 58:1-2 NKJV). My ears began to ache at the incredible news, “starting Sunday, the Presbyterian Church in the U.S. will begin […]

  • Rise Above the Petty

    An appreciation for ones talent and hard work is often overlooked by those who benefit from them the most.  Strength and resilience through prayer will help you find the resolve to overcome.  Being a manager does not necessarily make a person an effective leader and the most effective leader may be a horrible bosses.  Regardless […]

  • A Soft Answer Turns Away Wrath

    Why do you beat your chest and speak with such veracity? Why is ego your platform and pride your microphone? Why do you speak into what you have no power to do and speculate about what you do not know? Why are you controlled by your imagination? Is your word able to create what you […]

  • Willingness

    Consider the results of your efforts when you approach them with a willing heart; a willing spirit that challenges the shortcomings of the body. In your prayers, ask God for a willing spirit to sustain you (Psalms 51:12) because willingness does not recognize barriers, only obstacles. Willingness gives freely; it does not require a contract […]

  • Obedience

    Obedience Remove from all that you do, the fear of repercussion, challenge, failure, or unwanted burden and you may find a need to act out of love. For love is walking in obedience to our Father’s commands (2 John 6), which are not burdensome (1 John 5:3). Remove the blinders of sin that cause us […]

  • The Art of Deception; The Rewards of Faithfulness

    Proverbs 6:16 These six things the Lord hates, yes seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked plans, feet that are swift in running to evil, a false witness who speaks lies, and one who sows discord among brethren (NKJV). We […]

  • Searching

    Someone standing in the mirror keeps pointing out something in you, something that is trying to claw its way out of a pit of fear and confusion. Reminding you that for most of your life you have searched for signs of what is your destiny; that you have made every effort to help others and […]

  • Life’s Diary

    Psalm 25: 1-7 To You, O Lord, I lift up my soul. O my God, I trust in You; Let me not be ashamed. Let not my enemies triumph over me. Indeed, Let no one who waits on you be ashamed. Let those be ashamed who deal treacherously without cause. Show me Your ways, O […]

  • Victory Over Doubt

    Proverbs 3:5-7 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him and He shall direct your paths. Do not be wise in your own eyes, fear the Lord and depart from evil (NKJV). In the search for peace, our troubled hearts often cast […]

  • Sacrifice

    SACRIFICE A solemn expression, lade with images of broken hearts and troubled minds. A message on the cross, accompanied by grief and darkness; yet defeated, giving way to joyful songs and divine light. A message often misunderstood, dismissed as foolishness to those who are perishing; but accepted as the power of God to those who […]
