Another day, another mass shooting. Wow. As much as it upsets me, I wasn’t going to blog about it. As I was sitting at Mass, however, I felt the Holy Spirit urging me to share a few thoughts. Here goes… 1. God Is In Control Don’t panic. It might not seem like it, but God is always in control. He gave us the gift of free will, which can be abused. People can do very bad things. To prevent that,… Read more

Sorry that I’ve been absent for the past few days. I was hanging out at the Catholic Marketing Network Trade Show and finishing up a new book project on the Holy Spirit. While driving home from the store today, I saw this verse on the message board of a local church and had to share it with you. It’s a great example of what it means to trust in God, even when it doesn’t make sense. Though he slay me,… Read more

Some Good News… I have no idea when the Lord will be returning, but I do know that my time on earth is very limited. One day soon I’ll be standing before him in judgment. At that time, all of my words, thoughts and deeds will be examined. I’d like to think that I would be ready if it happened tomorrow, but I’m honestly not so sure. Even though I try to please the Lord, I know I often fail…. Read more

Whenever I write about the power of prayer or bring up “ask and you shall receive”, someone always seems to accuse me of being unrealistic or clueless. More often than not, that person asked for something in prayer, God said “no” and they have concluded that prayer doesn’t work. Believe me, I’ve been on the receiving end of that denial many times and I know it’s not fun. It took a long time, but eventually I began to accept the… Read more

The Internet can be such a nasty place. No matter where you look (Twitter, Facebook, the blogosphere), everybody seems to hate everybody. Although I’ve done it in the past (and regretted it), I now try very hard to avoid posting anything that could be interpreted as snarky or mean. Here’s something to consider. It’s just as easy to post a positive comment as it is to post a negative one. Because of the Holy Spirit living in us, we have… Read more

Ask And You Shall Receive… How many times have you stopped praying because God wasn’t answering your prayers? Let’s be honest – we do it all the time! Here’s the deal. While we can’t guarantee when and how our prayers will be answered, Jesus repeatedly assures us that He WILL answer. There is no catch, but there are a few things you need to understand. If you’re getting frustrated because God isn’t answering your prayers, take thirty minutes and listen… Read more

What Is God’s Will For Me? Great question, right? Here’s some good news. You can stop losing sleep trying to figure out God’s will for your life. The answer to this seemingly profound question can be found right in the pages of the Bible. Best of all, it can be broken down into 3 easy steps! Rejoice always, pray constantly, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18)… Read more

I had this great post planned for today, but the Holy Spirit messed everything up because he has a message for you. Here’s what happened. I started the day by doing my weekly Stop Worrying and Start Living segment on EWTN Radio’s Son Rise Morning Show. I chose a Bible verse that emphasizes the importance of putting our own worries aside and helping someone else. Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are… Read more

Yesterday, I wrote about the importance of understanding that God will not allow you to face any situation you can’t handle. In other words, if God brings you to it, he will bring you through it. What about if you just don’t feel it? You might understand it in your head, but not feel it in your heart. I know God is with me, but I need more. What can I do? I have to be honest and tell you… Read more

You might not realize it, but you go into battle every day. The fact that you can’t see your enemies doesn’t mean that they aren’t there. When faced with life’s daily struggles (financial issues, illness, loneliness), we can sometimes lapse into fear and anxiety. In order to maintain your peace when faced with difficulties, there is something you need to remember… If God brings you to it, he will see you through it! The Lord is always by your side… Read more
