God Says, “It All Comes Down to One Thing”

I have gotten to that “certain age”…you know, the age where doctors begin to say, “At your age…blah, blah, blah…” Or…friends say, “Wow you look great for 60! Gulp!!! Ready or not – here I come. Choosing to “age gracefully” rather than fight it! To accept the changes in my face as smile lines… To…

God Says, “I’m shakin’ my head”

  Have you noticed??? Some things never change! In life…in church…in business …even in the Kingdom of God… There will always be those who “WILL” – and those who “WON’T“. We need look no further than the ministry of Jesus Christ to see how this reality plays out. Picture a funnel: At the wide end at…

God Says, “You are making this too hard”

This time I knew these words were laid out far better than I could write them. Even trying to paraphrase would not do them justice. Today, I offer you the April 27th devotional from Henry Blackaby’s book,                            “Experiencing God Day By Day”. I offer…

God Says, “Love Waits”

The clamor of the noon rush hour swirls around me.  I sit quietly and wonder…will he show?  Will he come?  Has he forgotten?  Did he even mean to come in the first place? I break out of my daydream as I see his face beaming above the crowd.  He comes across the dining room as…

God Says, “I Always Answer”

 I love my church.  And this weekend our pastor shared something that I knew I wanted to pass on to you. His sermon gave example after example of Jesus teaching us to be “shamelessly persistent” in prayer.  Teaching us to ASK, SEEK and KNOCK – relentlessly!  Not because there is some magic formula for getting…

God Says, “Watch your Language”

No doubt you are familiar with the old adage, “actions speak louder than words”. But what do you think?  Is that really true? Based on both personal and professional experience, I would have to say YES!                                      …

God says…I’m Looking at Your Feet

TRUE Christianity is seen not heard! It is what we do with our feet – not our tongues – that count. Many know the “language” of Christianity. But here’s the question: What are you doing with what you know? If others were to follow your footsteps…especially Monday through Friday…would your actions match your words? With…

God Says, “You Missed It”

Reading Scripture is a never-ending journey. “Alive and active…sharper than any two-edged sword.”  (Hebrews 4:12) No matter how many times I return to the same verse, God has a way of bringing a brand new message – often remarkably suited to my exact circumstances. I used to wonder how that was possible? Now I simply…

God says, “Funny Where Happiness Hides”

I grabbed the morning paper and read the headline, “The Secret to Happiness”. Smiling I thought, boy – this would be the source of a good debate in Sunday School class?! But today I was ready for a bit of a respite from all the theological banter amongst believers on joy vs. happiness.  Right now,…
