Quoting For Comfort

Quoting For Comfort

In writing the following, I want to be sure to establish the heart from which this devotional message has developed over the course of years. Having been through two brain surgeries and the arduous ensuing times of recovery brought about from them, it was at those points so often, people would write brief notes of… Read More ›

Wealthy Yet Bankrupt

Wealthy Yet Bankrupt

Despite the fact, that the title is a paradox, it holds an absolute biblical truth for us to examine. Think of how many people are incredibly wealthy in this world. Consider how many entertainers, athletes and musicians, not to mention the number of entrepreneurs who are simply ridiculously rich according to their assets on a… Read More ›

Sin and the Struggle Within

Sin and the Struggle Within

I hate sin… I hate the temptations of sin! What’s more, I hate the fact that I can so frequently fall into the various temptations; the lust of the eyes, the lust of the flesh and the pride of life. These have always been the chief weapons of Satan going back to the day in… Read More ›

Being Encouraged, While Discouraged

Being Encouraged, While Discouraged

Some may argue that its either one or the other… “you can’t be encouraged while discouraged!” Well, I disagree! You can be loosing weight, while being overweight. You can be building wealth by saving, while still being poor. You can be encouraged, while in the midst of discouraging circumstances! For those who suffer from any… Read More ›

How You Wait, While You Wait

Oh, they might well hear our spoken beliefs and perspectives regarding various matters no doubt, but most often, they’re looking at the words… Read More ›

How Are Your Feet Looking?

But what if I were to ask you the same question from a biblical… Read More ›

The Totality of the 1st Commandment

The Totality of the 1st Commandment

Have you ever noticed, how the simplest of things at first appearance can actually be much more complex then first perceived? I mean truthfully… Let’s be honest! How many of us have attempted to assemble something without using the directions. We look at the picture on the box and figure, “It’s going to be a… Read More ›

No Time To Be Timid

No Time To Be Timid

OK – so let me just get right to the point here on this week’s devotional. I’m angry! I’m frustrated! I’m incredibly disappointed and I basically just want to grab some folks and shake them up! How can any authentic biblical Christian… a true follower of Christ watch what has transpired these past few weeks… Read More ›
