Thinking about life’s pathway over the last few days, I sought to boil down what it is that I want to do with the remainder of the second half of my years.  Statistically, I’m a good bit beyond the chronological mid-point of the average lifespan for an American male, so there cannot be the option…

The world is getting louder.  Our culture is becoming bolder.  Shut our eyes as we might, it is no longer possible to honestly say that things are going to improve apart from a Holy Spirit initiated awakening in America.  Let’s hold to a semblance of integrity and call things as they are: America is in…

When I was in the fourth grade I made up my mind that I was going to be a disk jockey when I grew up. I had a dream of working by myself in a radio station with fat headphones on my ears and a big silver microphone in front of my mouth. I wanted…

“But I am poor and sorrowful: let Your salvation, O God, set me up on high.” – Psalm 69:29 The Psalmist shares a secret that all believers know.  He presents a paradox that all who hunger and thirst after God are familiar with.  He inside-out’s us, and we nod our heads in agreement with this…

God reserves the right to initiate changes throughout our lifetimes. Nobody’s life remains the same forever. For those who are following Jesus, there is the consistent component of change. Because Jesus does not stand still but, instead, moves forward as He leads His sheep, those who follow Him experience seasons wherein He takes us in…

January 29, 2021 Dear Doubt, Hey there. Please forgive the formality of me writing a letter to you. I know it seems weird, especially since we spent so much time together last year. I really felt like I needed to put my thoughts down on paper so you would understand clearly what I need to…

People have asked me multiple times over the last year why I don’t speak out more on political issues. Recently, I have received a few messages from a few people who wrongly assumed I had posted something on social media as a rebuttal to something political or cultural that they posted on their own timelines.…

All Christians would vote YES for revival to break out. We all want to see powerful conversions from spiritual death to eternal life. We want to witness an awakening sweep across a dull and dusty Church in America. I believe in healings and miracles…but I don’t see nearly enough of either one of these beautiful…

Two thousand years ago, here is some of what was occurring in the universe: God the Father declared in Heaven that the fullness of time on earth had arrived – He sent His Son to us…with an unstoppable plan of rescue. Supreme God would become fully human as the Creator entered into His own creation.…

“If the LORD is with us, why then has all this happened to us? And where are all His wonderful deeds that our fathers recounted to us?” – the question of Gideon in Judges 6:13 Some of you have been wondering the same thing as Gideon. Praise has felt hollow. Prayer has become wearisome. The…

Sometimes you come across a bible verse or two that seemingly holds nothing of importance to you in the moment. Sometimes the Holy Spirit nudges you to go back and read it again.  Sometimes, when you read it the second or third time, you discover a little treasure that you had previously missed.  That’s what happened to…

“God has chosen what is insignificant and despised in the world – what is viewed as nothing – to bring to nothing what is viewed as something, so that no one may boast in his presence. It is from him that you are in Christ Jesus, who became wisdom from God for us-our righteousness, sanctification,…

“Elijah came near to all the people and said, “How long will you go limping between two different opinions? If the LORD is God, follow Him; but if Baal, then follow him.” And the people did not answer him a word.” – 1 Kings 18:21 We need prophets like Elijah today. Where are the men…

“Is it nothing to you, all you who pass by?” These ancient words of Jeremiah in Lamentations 1:12 are on my mind this morning. He desperately wanted his generation to deeply consider the destruction of their homeland due to their sin. He did not want them to push it out of their minds. He did…

Psalm 141:1-3 “O LORD, I call upon you; hasten to me! Give ear to my voice when I call to You! Let my prayer be counted as incense before You, and the lifting up of my hands as the evening sacrifice! Set a guard, O LORD, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of…

Hi, friends. It has been a while since I have personally posted here because, well, frankly, life has been happily boring these days during my ministry sabbatical. In case you had not heard, I am now officially cancer free. My healing did not come in an instant miracle, but the end result is so good…

Weakened? Forgotten? Seeking to move on from a personal fumble? Exhausted with life, people, barriers and breakdowns? I have earned a Masters Degree in those areas. More than once in my life, I have needed the help of God in my season of spiritual suffocation. “We do not have a high priest who is unable…

For the last three months I’ve been in a personal, intense health battle as all of my focus and resources were directed towards beating the cancer in my body. I can say with joy that I’ve exited that war and am on the upswing of merging back into what it feels like to be human…

“Through Him we have also obtained access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and we rejoice in hope of the glory of God. Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance… more than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom…

With so many of us sequestered away from what once constituted our normal lives, I would like to share something that the Father has been speaking to me about in my own life. Let me share a word today about something many of us routinely battle: fragile nets. “Simon Peter went aboard and hauled the net…

Hi, everyone. Have you caught your breath since the Corona-chaos hit the globe? I think I am beginning to. All of us have been rocked by this tiny microbe that has brought the planet to a grinding halt. My own bout with cancer was already draining some of my mental resources and – BAM –…

Nobody ruins my day.  Nobody steals my hope. Nobody makes me angry. Nobody robs me of joy.  As a matter of fact I am fully capable of doing all of that on my own, and would like to step up and say that when my day is ruined, when I am afraid or angry, or…

If you happen to have it all together, then I congratulate you and ask for you to pardon me for what is written below.  If you do not have it all together, then I hope you will be helped by a prayer I wrote this morning to our faithful and true Father.  I love Him…but…
