“And let us consider each other carefully for the purpose of sparking love and good deeds.” Hebrews 10:24
I wrote the words that follow sometime ago, a few years back I guess, but God will often times use my own words and writing to encourage myself. I must say that one thing I appreciate about the gift of exhortation is I can always encourage myself and usually do. But as encouragers we are often the last to be encouraged because most of the time it doesn’t occur to others we appreciate
People all around are fighting battles that don’t exist.
How about you? Are you anxious, fretting, worrying, doubting? Many people are this time of year. But Gods got you every day of the year.
It’s so important to keep your mind right and bridle it with the Love and Hope of Jesus Christ. Wise Men sought him out, so should you! Don’t allow fear, anxiety, false imaginations, sadness, worry, loneliness, pride, stubbornness or any vice to create a cross God doesn’t intend you to bear!
The Enemy of your soul is in
“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”James 1:17
“Lord, Let my words be Christ’s potent drug that reaches into and emerses every narrow crevice of man’s heart. That we might all be intoxicated for HIM and in HIm…the ONE, holy amd true. Amen.”
There really aren’t any words to describe my heart for God and the depth of my friendship with him. However, I have agreed with the Almighty to try to convey everything I
The Lord lean heavy in my heart to share a piece I wrote many years ago. I had to read it myself to recall it’s content which was amazing because I see how much I’ve grown even since writing it. Many struggle with loneliness, especially around the holidays. I seem to know many who have endured tragic and sudden losses of loved ones this year alone. Give your heart rest. Have Hope in God who will out a Spirit of Lonliness to the test. God intends for you to live
“But I trust in your unfailing love;
my heart rejoices in your salvation.
6 I will sing the Lord’s praise,
for he has been good to me.”
There is a passage of scripture that says, “Some trust in chariots and some in horses,
but we trust in the name of the Lord our God.” (psalm 20:7)
If I scripted this out in modern terms it simply implies God is our portion. God is my everything. I will not put my confidence and security
Give it your ALL—
How can I adequately sing a song of praise to you? How can I properly change my heart to execute your Goodness, Mercy and Love?
There is no one like you…
Not on the earth.
Not under the earth-
Nor can one be found in the sea or within the heavens.
You alone are ALL.
Because you are ALL- you not only inspire me to give you my all, but your devotion to me has power to demonstrate that I have your all as well. I know there are many others who love

One of the best things I can do every day is search my own heart…
There’s something stoic and beautiful about the courage to examine ones own heart. I’ve walked through many seasons where the Lord began to dig and probe and search me. It goes so much more smoothly when I yield.
Over time…I have come to realize that God truly is capable of taking care of me. I’ve always believed it as most who love Him dearly do, too. But we allow our mind and emotions to overrule his good
As this new Day begins may I bless you with my pen and God capture it and penetrate your soul and marinate it and season it and return it as pure gold, ounce upon ounce, added to your life.
Life is like a coin.
Spend it as you like.
You can only spend it once, so if you must spend it-
Spend it in the arms of love.
Spend it secured in Thanksgiving and Faithfulness.
Spend it with Graciousness.
Draw deposits from Heaven.
May the yeast of Compassion be woven and kneaded in.
Yoke your heart like a dove
There are so many fads and trends with fitness and nutrition. If you study their history you realize that nothing is truly new. Every fitness and eating plan recirculates and comes back “in style” or “trending” under a different name. What used to be the rage, the Atkins Diet, is now back, but relabeled for what it really is “Keto Diet”. Both diets nothing more than extreme carb restriction or elimination in order to put physiology in a state of ketosis.
