Wrath does not belong to you

“Never take your own revenge, beloved, but leave room for the wrath of God, for it is written, ‘Vengeance is Mine, I will repay’ says the Lord. ‘But if your enemy is hungry, feed him, and if he is thirsty give him a drink; for in doing so you will heap burning coals on his head’ […]

Avoid Being a Slinger

One of my most favorite spiritual teachers is Joyce Meyer.  In her devotional “Starting Your Day Right” she speaks of avoiding the slingers.  I will quote from her book, “There were people in the Bible called slingers who defeated their enemies by slinging stones and throwing dirt into their wells, contaminating their life source of […]

The Truce of 1914

“It happened in the midst of the fiercest fighting of World War I.  The story most remembered was that a German soldier began singing ‘Stille Nacht’ and his solo soon became a chorus as he was joined by English voices singing ‘Silent Night’.  A British regiment serenaded the Germans with ‘The First Noel’ and the […]

Happiness Factor

It’s been a while since I posted a recent blog posting.  My apologies for this.  I have been spending the last couple of years in more spiritual study and in trying to apply what I learn in real life.  The Lord has put it on my heart to begin to work on posting more blogs […]

The Good News

“The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart, that is the word of faith we are proclaiming:  That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord”, and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.  Romans 9″ Just reading these words […]

Mother Mary

February of this year marked the 50th anniversary of the infamous British Invasion that took place when the Beatles came to the United States and played to the American audience on the old classic Ed Sullivan Show.  The world was turned upside down from the introduction of this iconic group.  The 2014 Grammys provided their audience […]

Chill Out

As I write this most of the nation is experiencing record-breaking snow and severe weather conditions.  They are so bad, in fact, that cities have shut down completely.  We are forced to stop in our tracks and in essence “chill out”.  I have found in my life that God has an incredible way of getting […]

A Man of Integrity

In these times of loud, obnoxious and meaningless blather that fills our world of media, we ocassionally come across of someone who is making a positive difference in this world.  One such man, who I am proud to call a friend, is Bob Votruba.  He is the creator of One Million Acts of Kindness (www.onemillionactsofkindness.org).  […]

The Joy of God’s Presence

The more we enjoy of God, the more we are ravished with delight – Thomas Watson. These words give me great joy.  Why?  Because I have found them to be so true.  The more we know of God in our lives, the more we turn to Him during the course of our day, the more […]

Don’t Forget

The following is taken from the Daily Devotional: Our Daily Bread (www.rbc.org).  Beware that  you do not forget the Lord, Your God. (Deuteronomy 8:7-18) “I don’t agree with those who rail against material things and say that owning stuff is inherently evil.  And I have to admit that I’m a consumer–often tempted to pad my […]
