Good or Bad

If you search for good, you will find favor;

but if you search for evil, it will find you!

Proverbs 11:27 NLT

We bless or curse our selves by that which we choose to give our attention and focus to. Constantly looking for and majoring on the flaws, faults, and all the things that are not right in others is simply gathering seeds of bitterness, contention and hostilities into our hearts. These seeds will in turn produce a harvest of evil, unrest and ongoing controversy with… Continue

The Difference

But as for the cowards and the ignoble and the contemptible and the cravenly lacking in courage and the cowardly submissive, and as for the unbelieving and faithless, and as for the depraved and defiled with abominations, and as for murderers and the lewd and adulterous and the practicers of magic arts and the idolaters (those who give supreme devotion to anyone or anything other than God) and all liars (those who knowingly convey untruth by word or deed)--[all of these shall have] their part… Continue

The Shift

When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, "Put out into deep water, and let down the nets for a catch."

Simon answered, "Master, we've worked hard all night and haven't caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets."

Luke 4:4 – 5 NIV

Nothing is more frustrating than exerting huge amounts of energy, effort and time to do all the right things and to still continue to come up fruitless, empty and unsuccessful. When this continues to happen on a… Continue

From the Threshing to the Threshold

The grain is ground to make bread.

People do not ruin it by crushing it forever.

The farmer separates the wheat from the chaff with his cart,

but he does not let his horses grind it.

Isaiah 28:28 NVC

The Almighty God's love is truly unfailing and His wisdom is infinite. Grain has to be crushed to remove the chaff. The chaff served a purpose during the early stages of the grain. The chaff was present encapsulating the grain from the first budding all the way… Continue

Get Ready

Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work for beginning to end.

Ecclesiastes 3:11 NLT

Discerning times, purpose and seasons is critical. Everything that God has created has an ordained purpose and understanding purpose plays a huge part in knowing how our function. God’s work and how He does things is not chaotic. Everything God does has order. He has… Continue

Don't Get Sucked In!

There are many out there taking other paths, choosing other goals, and trying to get you to go along with them. I've warned you of them many times; sadly, I'm having to do it again. All they want is easy street. They hate Christ's Cross. But easy street is a dead-end street. Those who live there make their bellies their gods; belches are their praise; all they can think of is their appetites.

But there's far more to life for us.

Philippians 3:18-20 Message Bible
