The older I get the more I come to understand how little control I have over my life. I also understand how important it is to live by faith in God daily. We make decisions in our lives and we think we’re in control, but we aren’t. And if given the opportunity would you really want to be in control? Read the rest of this entry »
Faith in God and His Word is my passion. The subject of faith was my first major topic of study when I became a Christian. I’ve been intrigued by the topic of faith from day one. I love the concept of the battle between two realms, the seen versus the unseen and which of them will be more influential on our minds and hearts. Read the rest of this entry »
Gods Word tells us not to look at the things that are seen, but at the things that are not seen (2 Corinthians 4:18). An x-ray image has the ability to show doctors what’s going on inside your body. Many times doctors have been able to recommend evasive action based upon an x-ray image. Read the rest of this entry »
Faith is taking a stance on something without wavering….forever. Faith is unyielding. Faith is unstoppable. Faith is unrelenting. Faith moves mountains. Faith conquers. Faith overcomes all obstacles. Faith digs it’s heals in and will not be moved. Faith is like concrete, the longer it stands the stronger it gets. Faith makes no sense.
I heard a quote which says, “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results”. I absolutely disagree with that statement. In my opinion insanity is doing the same thing over and over then quitting before you see results. Read the rest of this entry »
Childlike trust in God takes God at His Word regardless of all reasoning’s, trusting that His word is absolute truth. Likewise, our own children come into the world completely trusting our words as parents. I admit that I’m a practical joker…sometimes to a fault. I remember one particular joke I played on my eldest daughter Jackie, who is now 30. At the time of the joke she must have been about 3-4 years old. As we were driving past a manufacturing plant she eyed the tall exhaust vent with steam coming out of it. With a childlike fascination she asked me, “Daddy, what do they make there?” Without missing a beat I gave her the most honest answer I could at the time. I said. “Oh, that’s where they make clouds”. ;) Read the rest of this entry »
For the Christian, when we run into problems in our lives, we pray to God for deliverance from our situations. For some issues we seek counseling from a Pastor or leader in the church. Sometimes we request prayer from others in the Body of Christ to help us get past our challenges. Utilizing all of these resources is great but I’d like to deal with the mentality we have as we seek relief from our problems through prayer. Read the rest of this entry »
While we listen not to the things that are heard, but at the things which are not heard. For the things which are heard are temporal, but the things which are not heard are eternal. Book of Greg, Chapter 10 verses 10-12…
Imagine a piercing car alarm going off right outside your office window. Read the rest of this entry »
Trust God to get you through life’s ups and downs as much as we trust mere humans to “thrill” us at amusement parks. I just saw a TV commercial for the latest thrill ride at Six Flags. The ride takes you 100 MPH from a standing start in 7 seconds then shoots you up a 41 story tower.
Then the ride drops you in a 415 foot free fall that gives you the sensation of weightlessness for 6.5 seconds. As I sat here watching the ride filled with people with their hands raised high, several thoughts went through my mind. Read the rest of this entry »
Faith, when seen up close for the first time can look completely different than what we imagined it to look like. The image of real faith in action is what we need to dislodge our misconceptions of what faith is and shake us into the realization of what real, practical, biblical faith is.
