How many people have said: “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result”? It’s so true. Sad but true. Different people, different drugs, different lies, different churches, different jobs, you name it, but it’s still the same thing over and over again. Why do we think the way we think? Why do we do what we do? The other day I was thinking about how I got to be at one of the lowest points in my life. But this time, instead of despairing, I remembered Continue reading “How did I get here and how do I get out?”
2nd Corinthians 7:1 (MSG) – With promises like this to pull us on, dear friends, let’s make a clean break with everything that defiles or distracts us, both within and without. Lets make our entire lives fit and holy temples for the worship of God.
So how do we get a new beginning? We’ve made mistakes. Ok…let’s be honest, we flat out rolled around in sin…enjoyed it even. It doesn’t really matter what brand of sin you were in; from lying to murder…it’s all sin. The Bible says sin has pleasure for a season. But did you REALLY enjoy it?

The good news is, you and I are actually ripe for Continue reading “New beginnings….”
Ecclesiastes, Chapter 3… Deep reading. Of the many chapters and verses in the Bible, these are amongst the most profound.
Both poetic and timeless, these scriptures are forever applicable in the everyday life of Man. “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven…” –the chapter starts. Right away, as a reader, I feel that there is a purpose for my current circumstance—good or bad.
The next few verses are soothing Continue reading “Seasons”
“…like crabs in a basket…”… A derogatory remark, normally associated with a group who is either fighting against each other; or who is trying to hold others in the group back so much so, that there is no chance of progression.
I heard this term used the other day in a sermon at a church meeting. As I was sitting listening, I began to think; Continue reading “Who is willing to be the last crab?”
Sometimes when we are going through difficulties in life, we ask ourselves, “How am I gonna fix this one?” I suggest the question we should be asking is, “Is there any thing to hard for the Lord?”
This question was posed in the Bible in the book of Genesis 18:14. During this biblical episode a truth is revealed, which is: Continue reading “Is there any thing too hard for the Lord?”
