Absent from His Presence

All of a sudden your routine goes haywire. How amContinue reading “Absent from His Presence”

It’s OK to Ask for Help!

We can become vulnerable to injuries when it comes to sports, work, construction, play, recreation like riding a bike or even climbing a mountain. I find that in our world of independence and individualism we tend take pride in trying to figure things out ourselves, or we try to get healed on our own.For someContinue reading “It’s OK to Ask for Help!”

Prayer is the Oxygen to Sustain You

Like the air we breathe is oxygen to our lungs, effective prayer is the oxygen to our spiritual life with God. Have you ever ran out of gas when driving your car and had to be at a must meeting only to realize you didn’t have AAA auto and were stuck in the middle ofContinue reading “Prayer is the Oxygen to Sustain You”

An Inside Job!

Change Comes When We Decide we are Powerless The great experience about living in New England or the Northeast is the changing of the seasons. Just when we get tired of winter or summer, spring and fall seem to bring relief from both extremes of the heat and freezing temperatures. If we want change inContinue reading “An Inside Job!”

Watch your Life and your Doctrine Closely!

I was away for a few days about a week ago down Cape Cod by Nauset Light/Coast Guard Beach. What struck me was the erosion of the beach and sand due to the ocean storms.

BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED

This license plate says it all, “HEALED”.Only God knows the suffering they may have endured in the past but excited to tell the world. Jesus became our wounded healer who suffered and died on the cross. Isaiah prophesied 700 years prior that Christ would be crucified for the sins of the whole world. Jesus notContinue reading “BY HIS STRIPES WE ARE HEALED”

Be Alert and Watchful

Spritual battles and the power of temptation are real in our lives. One of the big differences of increased warfare is when we pursue God for truth with passion. Why is that?

Exceedingly Abundantly

Scenes like this will lower anybody’s blood pressure. This picture was taken on Martha’s Vineyard a few years ago. Im amazed how the Lord desires to bless us beyond what we could ever think or imagine, especially in the small things in life. Life is about taking risks, but you will never know what yourContinue reading “Exceedingly Abundantly”

Your Best Investment

The most powerful, intimate force on earth is to invest (not spend) time with God. God has one desire and that is to fellowship with you and I.I find this heat wave here lately makes me want to do nothing and justify my own laziness. It takes self discipline to do things that are necessaryContinue reading “Your Best Investment”
