YOUR Motivation For Living

WHY? That is one question that we all answer, every day…although sometimes unconsciously. WHY do you do What you do? Simon Sinek wrote an excellent book about this,┬áStart With Why, and the premise is simple: If you’re going to lead people well, (including yourself) you need to…’start with Why’? Why should I do what youContinue reading “YOUR Motivation For Living”

The Test

How do you know if something is ‘legit’? How do you know if you can trust a person–a teacher, a boss, a politician, a minister? Is it possible to know, for example, whether or not a Church or ‘religious organization’ is the ‘real deal’ or not? Is there a ‘litmus test’?   Actually, there is!Continue reading “The Test”

Boldly Follow God’s Call!

You want to follow God, right? You want to know His will and do it. You want to listen for His voice, then follow. …and you assume that your family and friends want to support you in doing so…right? Not necessarily. For sure, most of us have family members or friends who will support usContinue reading “Boldly Follow God’s Call!”

Power Source

Power. One thing we all need, and it’s the key to progress. If you have ‘power’, you can make improvements, invent new things, have comfortable environments, light up dark spaces, etc. When the power goes out, however, you’re stuck. There seems to be a continual quest to invent/discover new ways of making power go further,Continue reading “Power Source”

Thirsty?

My buddies and I loved to play basketball in the summer. We’d spend hours at each others’ houses playing in driveways or on backyard courts. We had no other agenda in 7th and 8th grade…before we got jobs…and loved hanging out. After hours playing ball in the summer sun at my friend Rob’s house, we’dContinue reading “Thirsty?”

Deeper and Higher!

If you are a Believer in Jesus Christ, you know that God loves you. That, after all, is the main reason that He sent His son into the world! “God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish, but have eternal life. For GodContinue reading “Deeper and Higher!”

Prayer: God’s Love Language

I was thinking the other day that, if God had a ‘primary’ love language, it would probably be Prayer. Many of you have heard about and/or read Gary Chapman’s The 5 Love Languages. The idea behind this book is that we all have a primary ‘love language’ that resonates with us, and therefore, if IContinue reading “Prayer: God’s Love Language”

Terrorists, Movie Stars, Bullies…and Us

Nasim Aghdam was apparently upset with YouTube. So, she went to the YouTube headquarters and shot 3 employees, before taking her own life. What was she upset about? Apparently, she believed that YouTube was ‘censoring’ her posts, restricting the number of people who saw her. Seriously? Seriously! Apparently she was so committed to becoming aContinue reading “Terrorists, Movie Stars, Bullies…and Us”

Celebrate and Dream

Time. It marches onward, whether we’re ready or not. Here we are at the end of 2017, and headed into 2018. For some, the very fact that you are still here today–in spite of what you’ve gone through in the past year–is a miracle! For others, you are just ‘ready’ to flip that calendar, andContinue reading “Celebrate and Dream”
