Ps. 94:19 – The Multitude of Our Anxieties

I don’t know about you, but I sure can relate to the Psalmist in this verse. On any given day at any given moment, the multitude of anxieties within me are not only innumerable but overwhelming; the weight of those mental, emotional, physical and spiritual anxieties are simply too much for me to bare. This … [Read more…]

What Do You Crave?

If you’re like me, you get cravings from time to time. You know, those deep, intense cravings for your favorite snack or food, usually late at night, at the end of a long week, sitting in front of the fireplace or television watching your favorite movie or sporting event, and the best thing that would … [Read more…]

True Thanksgiving

The last few days I’ve been pondering and praying about a few thoughts I’ve had for a new blog. Many ideas, but didn’t feel confident any of them were what God wanted shared at the time. Just yesterday I felt the Holy Spirit telling me to wait as I had settled on a topic to write about. … [Read more…]

Don’t Lose Heart

Don’t quit. Don’t give up. Don’t stop. Don’t lose heart. We’ve all heard this before (perhaps from a certain long-winded Pastor); usually at the point of exhaustion physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. But how exactly do we accomplish this? How do we keep going, because quite honestly there have been times recently where it has become very … [Read more…]

The Truth Hurts

“Sometimes the truth hurts.” Have you ever heard that? I have. I’ve said it countless times in my life. Problem is,it was usually when I was being a little less than, shall we say, sensitive to someone as I was saying something nobody else wanted to say, but everybody knew it to be true. Follow … [Read more…]

Fruit of the Spirit

It’s the same way with us spiritually speaking. In Galatians 5:16-26 we see the kind of fruit we are to produce as believers and followers of Jesus Christ. The fruit listed there is not natural to this man. It’s quite a challenge sometimes to be honest. We have to nurture and feed our spiritual man … [Read more…]

Little Foxes

If you were wandering through the forest or a jungle, what’s the one animal you would NOT want to encounter? A lion, tiger or bear (oh my!) perhaps? An angry gorilla. A deadly snake; I hate snakes! A single bite from certain snakes has enough venom to kill 10 men. What about a jaguar or … [Read more…]

Seeking Peace???

The blog below is in response to an article that was recently printed in a local newspaper about a message that was placed on our church sign several weeks ago. I’ve gone line by line in an exegetical manner in outlining and responding to those things stated in the article, focusing mainly on the last … [Read more…]

Why the Cross?

In just a few short weeks, we celebrate the greatest event in all of history: the resurrection of Jesus. This is what separates true, Biblical, evangelical, fundamental Christianity from the “religions” of the world. Without the resurrection the cross is a question mark. But the resurrection is the exclamation point on the victorious work of … [Read more…]

Seeking Peace

Is. 26:3; 32:17; Ps. 34:14; Rom. 12:18; Heb. 12:14-17; James 1:19-20 Peace takes work and effort. It doesn’t come naturally to any of us and it’s not easily found, not in our world and certainly not in any of us. That’s why God tells us in His word we have to seek it and pursue … [Read more…]
