Britches Ain’t Big Enough

“Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God, so that He may exalt you at the proper time,” 1 Peter 5:6 Sometimes I feel God will humble me the I don’t do it myself.  I don’t think it’s direct, however, the circumstances of life (which ultimately are up to Him and the world He […]

Matter over Mindset Pt 1

“For the mindset of the flesh is death, but the mind-set of the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind-set of the flesh is hostile to God because it does not submit itself to God’s law, for it is unable to do so.  Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.“ Romans 8:6-8 I […]

Not Far

“He did this so they might seek God, and perhaps they might reach out and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us. For in Him we live and move and exist, as even some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’” Acts 17:27-28 HCSB I’d […]

Just Stay Calm

Easier said than done. How many times has someone told you that? Like a coach or a friend or a loved one.  Hard to do, when things are going off the rails. But if you knew someone had your back, was there to help, and that someone was a pretty big deal, maybe that calmness […]
