Take the Faith Step…

Have you ever noticed in your life of faith, that God will call you to ‘step out in faith’ before He comes through? That really is be design. After all, as Hebrews 1:6 says, “Without faith it is impossible to please Him, for anyone who comes to Him must first believe that He exists, andContinue reading “Take the Faith Step…”

Dream: Flirting With Demons

Flirting with Demons     3/18/19 I’ve told you before that I have VERY vivid and detailed dreams. Oftentimes they seem to be trivial and interesting, but inconsequential. Not last night! I dreamed that two friends and I (I don’t recognize their faces, but knew they were friends) and I were hanging out in a part ofContinue reading “Dream: Flirting With Demons”

Dream #2: Judge Not?

Judge Not…3/14/19 As I stated yesterday, I have VIVID, detailed dreams. The night before last I had 2…I described one in this post: https://pastordajo.com/2019/03/14/two-dreams-1-sparrow-and-spider/. Here’s my second one: In my dream I was at church, talking with a group of people after the service in the lobby. One of the young men—a high schooler—began toContinue reading “Dream #2: Judge Not?”

Now What?

When I was a kid, the ‘day after Christmas’ was just about the worst day of the year. All the months of anticipation…the looking through catalogs, making my ‘wish lists’, presenting it to Santa and my Parents, then waiting…and anticipating that Christmas morning celebration…now was over. All that was left to do was to cleanContinue reading “Now What?”

I Wonder…

I wonder what will happen tomorrow…or the day after tomorrow. Will the ’causes’ that I agreed with have passed? Will those I disagreed with have failed? Will the candidates I voted for have won, or been defeated? Obviously, I don’t know that, and no one does-despite what all the conspiracy theorists out there say! OneContinue reading “I Wonder…”

Pots and Kettles

If you are…ahem…at least ‘middle aged’, like I am, you have heard the phrase, ‘That’s like the Pot calling the Kettle black’. It’s an idiom for hypocrisy–when person #1 accuses person #2 of doing the very thing that that person #1 is actually guilty of. I always wondered: Where do phrases like that come from?Continue reading “Pots and Kettles”

Foolish or Wise? Which Will It Be?

There are no shortage of ‘opinions’ today. People seem to grow more ‘opinionated’ every day…and show it–with gusto! Social Media has ushered in a ‘coarsening’ of those opinions (in my opinion). 🙂 Having an ‘opinion’ is not necessarily good…nor is it necessarily bad! One thing we can all agree on, however, is that ‘just becauseContinue reading “Foolish or Wise? Which Will It Be?”

No Rest for YOU!

One of my favorite ‘Seinfeld’ episodes from years ago was called ‘Soup Nazi’. There was a chef in New York who was very temperamental, and IF you wanted soup from him, you had to make sure to conduct yourself according to his ‘code’ while in his shop…otherwise you’d here the phrase, “No soup for YOU!”,Continue reading “No Rest for YOU!”

What Are YOU Here For?

Why do YOU exist? Most of us never think about this. We go through our days, our weeks, our months and our years doing pretty much the same thing. We get up, get ready for the day, grab a quick breakfast on the way to work or school, then come home, eat dinner, maybe watchContinue reading “What Are YOU Here For?”

Keys to Faith and Boldness

Last weekend, we had a group of young adults over at our house for a time of fun, food, and fellowship. Our ‘New Generation’ group has been a great addition to our church. Those young people who’ve graduated from High School and are moving on to college and careers need ‘a place to belong’…as weContinue reading “Keys to Faith and Boldness”
