Life is in The Living

                 One of the most tragic things about human nature is that all of us tend to put off living. We dream of a better day, or I’ll be happy when I get a better job, or the kids are grown, or I pay off my house. It’s […]

It’s Time for Joy!

Welcome, 2021! It’s Time for Joy! The New Testament book called Philippians wasn’t written at a resort or by a man who was void of difficulties. Paul penned this book while chained to Roman soldiers, he was a man that had known excruciating hardships and pain, yet in those 104 verses, the theme is Joy! […]

Putting the Past Behind

As James Long said, “One reason God created time was so that there would be a place to bury the failures of the past.” In contrast, someone who is unable to get over previous hurts and failures is held hostage by the past. You can’t move forward carrying the baggage of the past. Chuck Swindoll […]

Don’t Give Power to the Past

As important as your past was to bring you to your present, dramatically more important is your present to bring you to your future, so why dwell on a past you can’t change when you can focus on a present you can change.  This goes in line with a verse of Scripture from Philippians 3:13 […]

Two Eternities

There are two eternities that we can’t do anything about, the eternity of the past and the eternity of the future! We can’t live in either one, not been for a split second. But by trying to do so, we destroy our bodies and our minds. The only moment we have is today. “Anyone can […]

Tomorrow

It has been said that the greatest source of human worry is about tomorrow. It was the first Easter, the women were going to the tomb of Jesus, they had missed the beauty of the sunrise, they didn’t stop to see the glory of the flowers along the way, why? They were worried about who […]

Me First

In this day of social media, we can easily get caught up in an image-driven life, a “Me-First.” Me-first people never find happiness because their favorite charity is themselves. Me-first people blame others for their mistakes. Me-first people are the ones that get left out from having real friendships.

Multiply Your Moments

The idea of living in the moment may seem out of touch, especially to those that are so driven by their goals. However, do not underestimate the cumulative effect this can have on your life. Take a penny for an example, if you see a penny on the sidewalk, you hardly feel it’s worth the […]

Willing to Be You

Robert Louis Stevenson said, “To be what we are, and to become what we are capable of becoming, is the only end of life.” When we create comparisons with others, it breeds in us frustration, failure, and unhappiness. When we are unwilling to be ourselves, it’s an insult to God. Consider the Bible verse John […]

The Portrait

There’s an old story told about a beggar who was sitting across the street from an artist studio. The artist saw him and quickly began to paint his portrait. When he finished, he called the beggar over to look at it. At first, the beggar didn’t recognize himself. “Who is it?” He kept asking. The […]
