Keep it in Practice

“What you have learned and received and heard and seen in me—practice these things, and the God of peace will be with you.” Philippians‬ ‭4‬:‭9‬ ‭ I have been blessed over the years to sit under some really great pastors. I’ve learned from them. I receive from them. I’ve heard the messages, and for some... Continue Reading →

Count It All Joy

“Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” James‬ ‭1‬:‭2‬-‭4‬ It’s funny, maybe a little ironic, that as I read this verse,...

Like a moth drawn to a flame

My spouse and I were sitting outside at the fire pit enjoying the cool of the night. A small moth came out of nowhere and flew directly into the fire. I’ve heard the saying before “like a mouth drawn to a flame,” but I’ve never actually seen it happen. The moth did not hesitate. It... Continue Reading →

We are Responsible

“So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin.” James‬ ‭4:17‬ ‭ Sin comes in many forms. There have been times in my life where I have felt condemned by a "man made rule." It was something that God convicted someone else of not something that... Continue Reading →

Speak no Evil

“Do not speak evil against one another, brothers. The one who speaks against a brother or judges his brother, speaks evil against the law and judges the law. But if you judge the law, you are not a doer of the law but a judge.” James‬ ‭4:11‬ ‭ The theme for my day must be... Continue Reading →

Hold True

“Only let us hold true to what we have attained.” ‭‭Philippians‬ ‭3:16‬ ‭ These words convicted me "Hold true to what you have attained." I have been a Christian about thirty-eight years. How many truths have I attained, but not held on to? I only need ready back through my journals and see lessons that... Continue Reading →

Good or Bad, Will We Obey?

Unexpected gift

I sat in silence watching the streets of New Orleans pass by. I was on my way back to the airport via Uber. It was 4 a.m. in the morning, and I was still processing the two weeks prior. My eyes welled with tears as I asked the Lord to help me put into words... Continue Reading →

Give And It Will Be Given

“give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you.”” ‭‭Luke‬ ‭6:38‬ ‭ I have always thought this passage was about finances. I’ve heard it to attach to tithing messages...
