“Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive.” Matthew 21: 22
Prayer works. It is that simple. There is nothing complicated about it. Find out for yourself. Pray.
Elijah was a human being like us, and he prayed fervently that it might not rain, and for three years and six months it did not rain on the earth. Then he prayed again, and the heaven gave rain and the earth yielded its harvest. James 5:17-18
Prayer is not like Continue reading
I have to admit that I have spent a lot of my life worrying. Worrying about what I have to do tomorrow. Worrying about what I did or didn’t do yesterday.
After many, many years of worrying I have come to a very simple conclusion Continue reading
I know this sounds like a complex, metaphysical question that has little to do with real life. Nothing could be further from the truth on all accounts. Like everything in life we try to Continue reading
Yes, God is calling you. Yes, I mean you!
If you believe that God created you, why do you have a hard time believing that he is calling you? Stop reading if you don’t believe God created you—if you think that you are some simple godless biological act. I can’t even Continue reading
Life on earth is not the end. Live life knowing that an eternity with God waits. Life on earth will take on a completely new perspective.
Even though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day. For this slight momentary affliction is preparing us for an eternal weight of glory beyond all measure, because we look not at what can be seen but at what cannot be seen; for what can be seen is temporary, but what cannot be seen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
There are two undeniable, uncontestable facts of life Continue reading
Just a quick thought for the day…
I think we all have a life “groove.” It’s that sweet spot in life when everything feels just right. There’s no resistance in front of us—just clean air and blue sky.
If you haven’t found Continue reading
Your answer should be “none of the above.” Today is a GREAT day!
This is the day that the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it. Psalm 118:24
Every day is made by God, so how can any day be a bad day? In fact, how can any day be anything but Continue reading
“Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only will you do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, ‘be lifted up and thrown into the sea,’ it will be done.” Matthew 21:21
Noah, Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Peter, and Paul. Saved mankind from destruction, fathered a people under God, saved the same people, led the people out of captivity to the Promised Land, was the rock of a new church of people, and brought the message of God to all peoples. They did all this with one simple thing Continue reading
It was exciting watching Bubba Watson win the Masters. The guy bucks convention left and right — has never had a golf coach, plays with a pink driver, and does goofy YouTube videos. “Being Bubba” is just throwing caution to the wind on the golf course and letting your emotions and the tears fly in public.
What I really love about “being Bubba” is Continue reading
“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” John 15:12
Please help me out because I just don’t get it. God gave us ten commandments that can be summarized by two: LOVE him and LOVE others. In LOVE, God sacrificed his only Son for our sins. And the night before he was beaten and hung on a cross — for us! — Jesus gave us a simple commandment to LOVE.
