Going There More Important Than Arriving

This is a great quote to remember every day…

When we think of the journey of life, the going is more important than the arriving. We are not here to be somewhere. We are here to live and to share our lives with each other. Our lives are the ultimate pilgrimage. Reverend James O’Leary, I Think I Am Happier Than I Think I Am

Share your life with at least one person today. Better yet, share it with everyone you meet. Try to give just a little of yourself with everyone around you today. And tomorrow and tomorrow.

The walk of life is more important than the end of the journey. Remember that and the journey never ends in an eternity of bliss.

God Says, “Just Smile!”

God means life to be so very simple. We are the ones who complicate life beyond all complication. God wants us to live life to the fullest. We are the ones who manage to live it to the least. That’s because we ignore God’s one command to LOVE. And you start loving with one simple little gesture—a smile. Continue reading

The Secret to Golf & Life: Hold On Lightly!

After more years than I can recall playing golf, I finally found a secret to the game. Hold the club lightly, as lightly as you possibly can. The problem with golf is that we hold the club as tightly as possible, practically choking it to death. The result is it creates tension in our entire bodies, making it very difficult to really swing through the golf ball. So, what’s a golf lesson has to do with life? Continue reading

Facing Your Giants

We all have “giants” in our lives. Those seemingly monumental obstacles that we can’t face or don’t want to face. If we just BELIEVE we can face anything—do anything and be anyone. But we let doubt, and those whispers in our ears, convince us that we can’t possibly face our giants. So, we give up or simply lay down in life.

Stand up to your giants! If you want some inspiration, look no further than Jesus who faced giant after giant, the final one being a brutal death on the cross.  And if you need some visible inspiration watch this clip from the movie, Facing the Giants. Then, watch the movie.

Don’t let doubt stop you from facing the giants in your life. Believe! And slay some giants like David. Or, better yet, like Jesus!

Transform Yourself By Not Conforming

I think one of the best Bible verses to live by is Romans 12:2 which says:

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God — what is good and acceptable and perfect.

Take a few minutes to read this verse over several times and really understand what Continue reading

Be Strong in the Lord and in His Mighty Power

In title, this is a message from Paul to the people of Ephesus but it was more likely meant for a broader group of Gentiles.

A final word: Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Ephesians 6:10

I think it is a message for all of us—you and me—and generations to come. I have found that one of the Secrets to Life is BELIEVE. Paul’s thoughts of “Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power” are the essence of BELIEVE. You can do anything, be anything if you just BELIEVE. If you are strong in the Lord, and HIs beyond mighty power, what can’t you do? As I say over and over again, the only thing holding you back is doubt and the only one holding you back is you.

Tap into the all-mighty power of God. Be strong in Him today!
