(Originally posted 8-21-19) 

“Abundance isn’t God’s provision for me to live in luxury. It’s his provision for me to help others live. God entrusts me with His money not to build my kingdom on earth, but to build His kingdom

Building A Jesus Platform (THROWBACK MONTH)

(Originally posted 8-21-19) 

The other day while mowing my lawn, I had a revelation.  Some of my best thoughts nowadays come during that hour or so I spend out in my yard.  The only downside is, I’m at a loss…

(Originally posted 11-6-19) 

Rest time is not waste time. It is economy to gather fresh strength.  It is wisdom to take occasional furlough.  In the long run, we shall do more by sometimes doing less.  Charles Spurgeon

Seeing For The First Time (THROWBACK MONTH)

(Originally posted 3-25-20) 

If you’ve followed a little of my story and kept up with these blogs, you know I love music.  I love being on the listener side:  being able to consume music, blog and post about music…

What Are The Georgia Guidestones?

Many of you are probably aware of this monument.  The Georgia Guidestones are literally a modern-day type of "Stonehenge appearing" structure that is located in Elbert County, Georgia.  I knew of the stones but never took the time to research…

That The Whole World Would Hear (PRAYER POINTS)

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2 

Well we are here after a month focused on prayer, ending at a point which I think makes logical sense.  These prayer points have taken ever-widening circles.  First we looked…

Lifting Up The Local Church (PRAYER POINTS)

Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. Colossians 4:2

Let Us Become Living Sacrifices (PRAYER POINTS)

Profiles In Courage - ESTHER

When Esther’s words were reported to Mordecai, he sent back this answer: “Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of all the Jews will escape.  For if you remain silent at this time, relief

Dear American Christian 2020 (Part 2)

We started last week with a topic that I will admit is not the most popular.  It’s not popular to talk about things like repentance and correction.  It’s not popular to mention to Christians the areas we’ve missed the mark…

Dear American Christian 2020 (Part 1)

Back in 2018, I wrote a pair of blogs that were addressed to the American Christian.  The points I felt I needed to make rendered the article several paragraphs long and it made sense to dispense with the points over…
