Called to a Higher Standard

Real love calls for repentance. Real love will tell you the truth; you are going to stand before a Holy God. Real love will press in. God does love you, come to Him as you are, but you can not stay there. The blood of Jesus washes you clean. Repentance is not an insincere apology. […]

Apologetics, Not Apologies

I am not intimidated, nor ashamed, to share my faith in Jesus Christ. While it is foolishness to the perishing, the man who is wise in his own eyes, it is life to those of us who have put our trust in Jesus. There are some who are afraid to share there faith, but fear […]

Count it all JOY

Does it ever feel like things are not going the way you think they should? I mean, you are trying to do everything right and be a person of integrity, but it seems the Godless people are flourishing? Yea, I had a few minutes pity party for myself today. It only took a minute for […]

End Time Bullies

There was a boy who was being bullied. Everyday the neighborhood kids would taunt and tease him. And everyday the little boy would come home with bruises and tears. There was one particular bully who seemed like a giant in the boy’s eyes. He was the meanest bully of them all. Now this giant of […]

It’s in the DNA

My fathers side of the family is recognized by “the chin.” Most of my cousins have inherited this feature, including myself. When my children were babies they looked like their father. As they grew they developed some of my features; big eyes and dimples. Mostly, they took on my mannerisms, no doubt because of my […]

What’s Goin’ On?

I have really been burdened lately, sometimes to the point where an anxiety attack threatens me. This is when I have to sit down, breathe, and remind myself of 1 John 4:4. Little children (believers, dear ones), you are of God and you belong to Him and have [already] overcome them [the agents of the antichrist]; because […]

No More Self Loathing

We know God forgives us, because He says if we repent, He forgives us of our sins. We even forgive others (with His help). Yet… We struggle to forgive ourselves. Living in regret and shame keeps us in bondage. This is not God’s will for us. We start getting ahead and then that ol’ lying […]

It’s a mission field out there!

I wish I had something profound or witty to write. I sit at my laptop and stare…   It is not that I don’t have thoughts, but I am finding it difficult to convey them. Perhaps the thoughts are meant for me alone? Maybe God is showing me something and I need to wait for Him […]

The Tomb is Empty! Death is defeated!

    Now on the first day of the week Mary Magdalene came to the tomb early, while it was still dark, and saw the stone [already] removed from the [groove across the entrance of the] tomb.  So she ran and went to Simon Peter and to the other disciple (John), whom Jesus loved (esteemed), and said […]

Love-O-Meter

      If I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love [for others growing out of God’s love for me], then I have become only a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal [just an annoying distraction].  And if I have the gift of prophecy [and speak a new message from God to […]
