Deep Prayers…

...trusting God completely.

Some of us have deep concerns that need to be brought before the Lord. Today, again, I have been reminded of close friends that are trusting God for miracles. “He knows the storms that would our ways oppose, and tempers every wind that blows.” – Sarepta M. I. Henry It’s interesting, we know almost nothing […]

Worship the Lord…

...in the beauty of holiness.

Psalm 29:2 (NIV2011) 2  Ascribe to the LORD the glory due his name; worship the LORD in the splendor of his holiness. This is a great idea for today and every day. Will our lives be worship to the Lord? We can when it is in the beauty of holiness. It won’t be found in […]

Lead Yourself First…

...then you may be able to lead others.

In a recent good conversation with a media guru, we had the opportunity to address a group of aspiring leaders. My friend, who is prominent in the media world said unequivocally, “Before you can lead others, you must be able to lead yourself.” He’s right. Many are trying to lead at different levels in the […]

Liberty…

...or death.

On March 23, 1775, Patrick Henry, delegate to the Second Virginia Convention, gave an impassioned speech related to colonial independence, where he concluded with the challenge, “Give me liberty or give me death.” [btw, the convention was held in St. John’s Church in Richmond – a nod to those confused by separation of church and […]

God Wants You To Be Holy

...so show up for work.

This expression has become a common part of my advice for believers in the Lord Jesus. Be Holy…and show up for work. Primarily, It comes from 1 Thessalonians 4:3 “It is God’s will that you be sanctified.” We are encouraged throughout the Word to be holy, which means to live like Jesus in spirit and […]

Yes, we can…

...the way forward.

Going forward is marked by “Yes, we can.” There can be a few setbacks, reductions, realignments and other complications, but consider your “Yes” drive. It’s possible. It’s needed. It’s best. It’s worth the commitment. Let’s put our heads together and make it work. This will improve our position. Don’t give up. These are the files […]

Get The Word Out…

...more options than ever.

Fake news is in the news…and it ought to be. It’s wearisome to sort out the news from historic news organizations that we believed in our naiveté was right on and truthful. Often in conflict with political opinion, we looked for the reality among us…until…it occurred that we might be getting filtered messages from another […]

More than Vision…

...It takes commitment.

I love visionary people. The imagination soars with possibilities yet unseen. A new world. A new solution. A new way to go. Exciting realities. Promising results. Hope realized…and more… Yes. I admit. I am there. It all becomes a dream without commitment. Then it turns into …I wished we had… We should have… Imagine if […]

Learning from the Master…

...no time to waste.

When will we learn? The teacher wonders some times when the students will ever understand the lesson. With limited time and high priority, the teacher does their best to get the message across. We as students need to listen and apply the learning. When the lesson comes from the Master, all the more we should […]
