I haven’t been writing much lately. My mother always said, if you can’t say something nice, don’t say anything at all. With the world circumstances swirling in my head, the best I could do was hold on tight and try to deny the pain in my gut. Who wants to hear anything more about that? … Continue reading And Now, the Good News!
Raise your hand if, like me, you’ve had two or three—or more—people send you YouTube links to Christian prophecies that reveal something awful is about to happen. Money evaporating. Cities burning. UN troops policing US soil. On and on it goes. One thing I’ve noticed in all the videos I’ve been sent, or the ones … Continue reading Brace Yourself!
As the storm of coronavirus rages around me, I am continually looking to Jesus to show me how to respond. A couple of days ago, I went to Matthew 7:24-25 (NKJV) which says, “Therefore, whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on … Continue reading Don’t Just Stand There! Come Out of the Rain!
I think of myself as a change expert. Resilient. Resilient is term defined as able to withstand or recover quickly from difficult situations.

The protests against racial injustice around the country have coincided with a desire … Continue reading Open Eyes. Open Hearts.
One of my goals in life is to be content. I define contentment as satisfaction with my place in life fueled by the knowledge that where I am now is the perfect place for me in this moment and, in this moment, I have all the love, resources, energy, knowledge and wisdom I need to … Continue reading Is There Any Contentment in COVID?
It’s easy to have a victim mentality these days. A victim of the corona virus. A victim of the partisan system. At the mercy of the economy . Waiting for promised unemployment and stimulus checks. Trapped at home, behind a mask, away from loved ones. Waiting for God to answer prayers and put everything back … Continue reading Don’t Be a Victim of COVID-19
NOTE: I wrote this post awhile back. At that time, problems and distractions were more personal and less global than they are right now during the COVID-19 Pandemic of 2020. If you have recently suffered some major setbacks in your goals and dreams as a result of the coronavirus and the resulting shutdowns, it might … Continue reading HOW TO CHART A COURSE TO YOUR PURPOSE
Fear is a sneak thief! He has an especially wicked trick. This bandit manages to steal things from you that you haven’t even gotten yet! Most thieves come and take away your possessions. Fear steals your potential. He interrupts dreams with twin terrors: fear of failure and fear of success. He doesn’t care. He’s just as happy to … Continue reading DON’T LET YOUR LIFE BE STOLEN BY FEAR!
Today is the final day of the 40-day challenge to find more joy in life. I began this project on February 26, 2020—the first day of Lent. The world changed radically over the course of those 40 days.
