Charlie Daniels - theologian?

Charlie Daniels ... Theologian?Having talked about how biblical prophecy is one of the proofs for the veracity of Scripture in What Matters Most #Two, I thought to send this piece by Southern rocker, Charlie Daniels.  Interesting."I am a big fan of Bible prophecy and now is a fascinating time to be alive because some of the major Old Testament Prophecies have been fulfilled in my lifetime.One of the huge prophecies was fulfilled on May 14, 1948 when the State of Israel was born, or I should say…See More

What Matters Most? #two

what matters most?  #two.Greetings.We order our days around our priorities ... or do we?                                                    Do you and I make daily decisions based on what we believe means the most to us, or are we too often mostly operating on autopilot, not thinking too much about what we say means the most in our lives?  Dang, but I love to ask myself these kinds of questions!

What Matters Most? #One

what matters most?I have discovered that the answer to that is age dependent. Think of your preschool-aged son... what matters most to him?  Getting his needs met-pants changed when they're wet, building the best Lego rocket ship, seeing his mom as soon as she gets within range at school pickup time.  These are the things that matter most. Same boy a dozen years later wonders if he will make the freshman soccer team at the high school.  Will he be quick enough, his moves enough to impress the…See More

Duty, Devotion, or Delight?

Duty, Devotion, or Delight?Howdy!Duty, Devotion, or Delight . . . What is it for you?  Do you read the Bible out of a sense of duty, or is it devotion, or is it something else?    The other day I was 'texting' with someone who is suffering-trying to encourage her--when she commented, 'I know I am lacking discipline when it comes to my devotional life, sad to say.'  Interpretation:'that is what I should be doing.' Should be = duty. It made me think about the whole Bible-reading thing.  Why do we…See More

Now what ... in the wake of Las Vegas, Houston, Mexico? Oct. 5, 2017

Now what?  ...in the wake of Las Vegas, Houston, Mexico ...The stories from Vegas first trickled out, and now they are pouring out from everywhere it seems.  People who saw loved ones shot in the face, shot in the stomach, and everywhere ... people running for their lives.  We do not understand why God allows such tragedies, but then, he did give us free will, right?  That free will allows for the choice of evil, and the choice of a godless existence.  Okay, but for those of us who say we trust…See More

Where was God ... in Las Vegas?

Where was God ... in Las Vegas? Read this and share it, Friend.'Find yourself frightened, unsure, tense or insecure, in the face of a madman gunning down fellow Americans enjoying a concert?  The worst kind of tragedy is evil perpetrated by a human being against fellow human beings-for no reason.  But then there's the devastation in Puerto Rico, Mexico, Houston, and Florida ... and that's just what is assailing us on our continent.  Fact is, there is trouble worldwide.  Then there are our…See More

TrUe ConFessIons.

Good Morning!True confessions: I thought the Bible was boring too. I read it more out of obligation than desire-meaning, I knew that God wanted me to read my Bible because that's what 'good' Christians do - they read their Bibles every day, right?But something changed ... radically, I mean about the obligation thingThat's because in recent days, these comments have been expressed to me: "No one should have to feel what it is like to be inside my brain..." "How could my own mother ever treat me…See More

God's new name for you.

God's new name for you.Gideon saw himself as fearful and less than, but God came to him and called him a Mighty Warrior.  God called him out from the cave and into his purpose for him . . . he gave him a new name.  You may have been called names in grade school, you may have been 'talked down to' all your life ... but not by God.  God sees you as his dear creation, Friend. You are the "Beloved". That is to say,                                 you are much loved by…See More

Want a new name?

God has a NEW NAME for you.Can we talk real talk?-did you have a name people called you, a not-so-nice 'nick name'?-do you have things you call yourself when you mess up?-do you still hear the voice of your critical dad in your head?-or perhaps a coach or teacher who derided you?Whether someone built you up or regularly tore you down, it has impacted how you view yourself. These things-words-lodge themselves in our brains, and they oft mark us. You may be a true success story in your life, but…See More

Not harmless . . .

Not harmless, but TOXIC.Would you be shocked to know that some of your thinking is toxic? Some of us have thoughts that we have let simmer for 30 years, or burn for 25, or boil over for two years. Parts of our brains look like this picture:These thoughts that we leave unattended, pushed back, and never really addressed--you know, like 'pans' of guilt always simmering, 'pans' of boiling bitterness, maybe painful memories, emotional pain, etc.--they are toxic... they cause anxiety and depression,…See More

I don't know if you have this

I don't know if you have this ...but II am smitten by the notion of wisdom.Why? Well, that takes a little unpacking. Socrates, who lived from 470 B.C. - 399 B.C., was purported to have said 'the only true wisdom is in knowing you know nothing.' I don't buy that actually, unless it is in comparison to the overall scope of what can be known. Regarding wisdom, I find the whole notion of Lady Wisdom interesting . . . her various angles compelling and intriguing.One author penned, 'at one point in…See More

A "Time to Choose"

"A Time to Choose" - Humility.He grew up simply (a nice word for kinda poor) in Illinois. Among other jobs, he worked as a lifeguard to help support the family, but also participated in high school sports, including as a member of the basketball cheerleading squad. On a needs-based college scholarship, he played (and lettered in) football and ran track (also coached for two years); he acted in 14 plays, and was involved in student government. He was a well-rounded guy! After college, he was a…See More
