Just do it – You Are Duty-Bound!

It is important to know that yes, as individuals, we need to be grateful, but as servants we need to be humble. A humble servant is lowly in self-estimation. There is no pride or ego that needs the flattery of gratitude. Humbleness is modesty, but it’s not weakness. A great deal of strength is required to completely set your self aside in service to another.

Just do it – Get Up and Walk!

Perhaps I’ve known the principle of this story from a young age, because I can’t recall a time when I’ve known what I’ve wanted and didn’t act on achieving it or prepare to receive it. I’ve certainly had my low moments when I’ve prayed for help, support, and assistance of any kind; and lower moments when the help I was looking for never arrived. But being low (in spirit, in mind, in encouragement, etc.) never stopped me from standing up straight and moving forward.

Don’t Be Weak Minded… Please!

Let me tell you, that had to be the first time I approached someone I had just met in an unfamiliar environment and tried to provide them with a healing word. And it so happened that it was the first time I got shot down in mid-word for my efforts! I was stunned. And I struggled to not be offended. Belief is a choice. Faith is a choice. Accepting God’s Word is a choice. I can’t be upset with how others choose….

Seduced by the Enemy, Part 1: Know Thyself, Know Thy Enemy

The word “enemy” can also be misleading, in that it leads one to look outward for danger instead of inward. The spiritual attacks aimed at knocking believers from their walk with God targets the believer’s internal organisms of belief, faith, heart and thoughts. Even though the perpetrator of the attacks is the spirit we know as Satan or the devil or the god of this world, our most dangerous potential enemy is our self.

Pleasing God While in the World

We work so hard to please God and all our hard work is for naught when we aren’t giving Him what He truly wants. God is a communicator. He has spoken His words and had them written down so we can review and refer back to them at our leisure. As we learn His Word, He wants us to speak it back to Him. In teaching us to speak His word back to Him, He is teaching us to speak to Him directly. His ears are open – He’s ready to listen; He’s ready to answer. He’s ready to speak new words to us… special words.

Two Life Living Lessons from Mom

Nearly everything I learned from my mother, I learned from watching her live; observing how she interacted with and treated others. Occasionally, I missed a lesson and took my cues from how people treated her – dismissively, disrespectfully or abusively. When I responded to them in kind, mom would rebuke me with a great deal of irritation….

Your Life is Your Ministry

I’m sure you’ve heard many variations of this theme [why do today what you can do tomorrow]. And to all of those excuses and the ones waiting to be spoken, I say – Indeed, the “right time” is now. Today is the day of salvation. (2 Corinthians 6:2). So… just do it!

Private message from a friend

“This morning, like the past several weeks, I’ve been out running before sunrise. Time permitting I’ve been reading a chapter or two from your book when I get back. I was going to text you this morning just to say Hi and wish you an encouraged and wonderful day but then one text message turned into two and since it was before 7 it seemed best to reconfigure the medium of communication and send it a little less indirect so you could look at it when both your eyes were fully open and you had consumed your morning beverage of choice (oj,tea,coffee).

The book is continuing to be a good read for me and from one single person to another a lot of what you say testifies to what is in my heart or the Lord is revealing to me about myself. On the other hand, there is a whole different list of ideas I look forward to discussing with you because for every thought that makes me want to say “Yaw, Heay Der I Know Watcha Mean, Yeah, Eh?” (I think that is Yooper for “Say it loud sista”) there is another thought that seems foreign to me. Anyway, that is a conversation that I look forward to at another time.!”
