Small word that is used 1637 times in the Bible. So much is dependent on “If”.  If my people….. If you forgive men their trespasses.....  If you want to be perfect…..  If you have faith as a mustard seed.....  If you say to this mountain.....  If two of you agree on earth….. If anyone desires [...]

Life’s Circumstances

The God Factor

Don’t forget the “God Factor”.   In life’s many challenges, sometimes we forget the God factor. I call it the God factor because it is God showing up in the middle of life’s situations and doing the seemingly impossible. One of the many things I have learned in my walk with Jesus is that the [...]

What is God Thinking?

What is God thinking? What are you thinking? There really shouldn’t be too much gap between the two.   Paul tells the Corinthian church that “….we have the mind of Christ.” I Cor 2:16. If I truly have the mind of Christ, then I really should be thinking His thoughts! About myself, about others, and [...]

Plan Now

  It is October and every farmer in my area is full bore into harvest. Funny thing about harvest is you only get to harvest what you planted months previously. You don’t have the privilege of determining what you need now and decide to harvest that. You had to decide months earlier what your needs [...]

Many Brushes are Better

Leadership is about casting vison that can be turned into reality. If we were already experiencing it, it would not be vision. Vision is the place we want to go, the thing we want to pursue, the picture of what we want future reality to be. When we are casting vision, we are painting a [...]

It’s Time to Lose Weight

It’s time to lose weight!   The writer of Hebrews says it is imperative to success! Heb 12:1 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down….   As I interact with society around me and look [...]

“Applications are being accepted!”   Chris Smucker did an outstanding job ministering at New Life Church yesterday. He said something that really caught my attention. He was speaking on leadership and said something to this effect. You know that sometimes when people go to a place to apply for a job and the response is [...]

April 1st

April 1st. The one day of the year where you need to really be on guard. It is on this day that around the world people try and pull jokes on others and sometimes cruel jokes at that. But the cruelest of all jokesters is the devil himself when he tricks people into thinking that [...]

Don’t Judge Me

Don’t judge me! How often have we heard that statement said. My friend Jeremy said it best when he said, “People say don’t judge me but in reality, people are always wanting us to judge them. Some people buy certain clothes, purchase the latest cell phone, go on certain vacations, etc., all in hopes that [...]
