What Language Do You Speak?

Connecting with others in a meaningful way, or should I say, in a way that is meaningful to them, is the key to enjoying your relationships. So, how do you do this? By being OTHERS-CENTERED! The way I like to say it is with the acrostic J.O.Y. Jesus first. Others second. You third. This is [...]

3 Things You Don’t Want to Forget!

“Do not remember the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18-21 God is doing a new thing in your life this [...]

A Thanksgiving Reminder

Listen. This was the admonition Mark Cowper-Smith gave to us in his excellent message here last Sunday about how to be a peacemaker amid the turmoil in our nation right now. This weekend you will be spending time with family and friends that you don’t see every day, some who are on the other side [...]

Life Your Eyes!

Did you know that Jesus said very little about politics when He was on the earth? Why do you think that is? I think this passage says it all: “On that very day some Pharisees came, saying to Him, ‘Get out and depart from here, for Herod wants to kill You.’ And He said to [...]

Who Do You Trust? Presidential Election 2016

Today we will vote in our next President. And as we all realize, there is a lot at stake and the outcome will have far reaching implications. But there is something I’ve observed during every election cycle that is a matter that I believe is much farther reaching: Each election cycle reveals something to us: [...]

A Word For You!

It seems that whenever I take an extended break, which I just came off of this week, Jesus gives me a fresh word. Does that happen to you? I think it might be because when we relax long enough He is able to speak deeply into our hearts.   Well, it happened to me again [...]

Praising in the Darkness!

Have you ever been through a dark period in your life? Maybe a sickness, or loneliness in your marriage, or a wayward child, or getting laid off from work, or betrayal from a friend? I’m sure you have. We all have. But God has an answer. In the Book of Acts chapter 16 we see [...]

The Things I’ve Learned

I read a post the other day that is a powerful example of what I wrote a few days ago on being, "Unstoppable!" I decided to post it here to encourage you. This is from one of the best writers I know, and someone who has some deep things to say to us all – [...]

Be Unstoppable!

Do you know a person who is unstoppable? Or, maybe a story of someone? Why do we like the “beating the odds” stories? I think it’s because they give us hope. They inspire us. They challenge us to dig deep and to not give up. But as much as I love these stories, I like [...]
