What Can You Live Without?

How do you take your coffee, with or without sugar? Do you lock your car with or without keys in your hand?Do you drive without checking your gas levels? Can you live with or without friends? How about without an old flame? What about religiously, do you live your  life without Jesus? Life has a way of filling our days with trivial activities so you zombie your way through this life and live without what's important--a goal set towards Heaven. Imagine never reading the Book of Genesis, the world would not know about creation, sin, the fall of man, God’s judgment, and the redemptive story of Jesus Christ. Where would you be if Jesus never came to earth? What control Satan would have on your life?  If you think sin and circumstance has you up at night, imagine your life with out Jesus!  Without him, there's no hope. It’s a life like a drifting ship without a sail; it aimlessly wandering through a sea with no future. Without Jesus, mankind would be doom. But bless be the God of t…

Those That Wait On The Lord

My favorite verse in the Bible is Isaiah 40:31, “they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; and they shall walk and not faint”.  What are you waiting on? Are you in a situation that is wearing you down right now? No end in sight?  One thing we can agree on is that Satan is doing his job--WELL!  Waiting is the last thing you wanted to do right now. What you want is to get away from your problems and be left alone. 

       When the children of Israel were taken by the Babylonians to another country, depression and homesickness settled into their psyches.They get there and their captors tells them when the music play, to bow down to their god. If they didn't, they will be thrown in the fire. You know the story.  The three Hebrew boys Shadrach, Meshack and Abed-nego showed unwavering faith. Despite what the King declared, they did not worship the King’s god.  They were throw into the fire.  The wai…

Soul Cleanse

I love eating out, don’t you? McDonald, Chili’s, TG Fridays all have something in common—it’s food raises the cholesterol. But they're so good! The fries, hamburgers, pastas, clogs the arteries and raises the triglycerides.  Just the other day my doctor tells me to reframe from fast-foods because its toxic.  It got me thinking about something else--the soul. Have you thought about what are you filling you soul? Are you allowing negative thoughts fester in your mind or watching Inappropriate shows? What about allowing unforgiveness linger on your heart too long. Oh what about envy and jealousy setting up house in you? The Bible speaks about those damaging the soul. Don’t forget to put down lies, hatred, and name-calling.  I understand that if you are struggling with these sins and others, you are human and a working progress—we all are. Keep in mind if you rid yourself of the ills the Bible calls sin, you will have a healthy, blessed and enjoyable life here on earth and a blissful …

Spiritual Quietness

Sometimes, it good to get away from the noise. Go somewhere quiet to gather your thoughts. That's a rare commodity in my life.  There's the noise of the road, noise of the boys, and noise of a busy office. Often times I can't wait to be alone with the Master.  We all need spiritual quietness from time to time.  Spiritual quietness is a mini revival where you get into the scriptures and absorb all of God's wisdom. This is a time to repent of sins, to renew spiritual promises you made and to communion with the Creator.  It's a time of reflection of the past and preparing up for the future. You can have your spiritual quietness early in the morning when everyone asleep or take a nature walk in the middle of the day.  How about grabbing your bike and ride the bike trail.  Wherever you go and however you get there, take your Bible.  On your spiritual journey of quietness, remienscence on the goodness of God. Awe Him! Thank Him for all the times he came to your rescue. S…

Give Thanks

I remember asking God for something but when He answered my prayer, I didn't get it.  I was so glad!  I ran to him thanking him. One of the hardest things to do is when life is hard,  to give thanks.  The outlook is dim and gray. Although hope is all around, giving thanks doesn't spew out.  So how does one give thanks when life issues over shadows him?  Remember Joseph in Genesis? He had a life of slavery and imprisonment.  Joseph was young, arrogant and foolish, as we are many times. He probably started out thinking he had it all under control.  Slowly, he found himself in situations were he had no control. Do you feel like that at times?  No doubt Joseph called out to God on his dark days. However, he learned a lesson in his hour of need. He learned humility and that God always has a plan we cannot see until it is unveiled. After his brothers' evil plot of getting rid of him and then seeing them again in the future, Joseph realized God was guiding him.  He told his broth…

Living The Life

I heard on co-worker ask the other co-worker how was it going. To his reply came, "living the dream."  Are you living the life?  Ecclesiastes 5:18 says, "...it is good and comely for one to eat and to drink, and to enjoy the good of all his labor that he taketh under the sun all the days of his life, which God giveth him for it is his portion."  God wants you to live a happy, stress-free full life. Don't allow anyone to take that from you. This day, when someone come towards you with aggression, smile.  Maybe there was a death in the family and that person is just angry.  When your enemy hate you without a cause, thank God. God maybe preparing a table before you in their presence, which has set them off (smiles).  When threaten to lose your job, rejoice. Your boss may not have the respect of the company like he or she thought and wants to take away your joy--not knowing God gave you your job.   When blessed, praise God. There's more where that came from.  …
