God Or Money? Working in full time ministry, I don’t have a lot of money. Not even close. Even though we live very modestly, it’s often tough to pay the bills. The Lord has definitely provided for us, but we’ve had a few close calls. Now, here’s a confession. I love my job, but I sometimes wish we had more money. Not just a little bit, but lots and lots of money. There are times when I dream about about… Read more

Happiness Isn’t Dependent On Things Happiness has never come easy for me. I always wanted to be happy, but never could seem to find a way to make it happen. Like many people, I believed that my happiness was dependent on circumstances. If only I could make certain things happen, I’d be all set. Over the years I convinced myself that all I needed to be happy was a girlfriend, a great job, a wife, children, good weather, lots of… Read more

Love One Another! On the night before he died, Jesus gave us one of the most challenging commands imaginable – Love One Another. In my opinion, it’s the single most difficult part of being a Christian. “I give you a new commandment: love one another. As I have loved you, so you also should love one another.” (John 13:34) I don’t know about you, but I struggle with this every day. Jesus commands me to love everyone with the same… Read more

You Can Find Greater Joy TODAY! Here’s some good news. True joy isn’t based on external circumstances. In its most authentic form, joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit. Therefore, if the Spirit is dwelling in you, you already possess the joy you seek. What’s even better is that tapping into the joy of the Holy Spirit is easier than you think! In this week’s episode of The Gary Zimak Show, I offered 5 ways to find greater joy… Read more

The gospels are filled with stories of Jesus healing various individuals. It’s very inspiring, especially if you or someone you know needs a miraculous healing. But there’s a catch. After healing the person, Jesus would often tell them that they were healed because of their faith. As one who has struggled with weak faith for many years, this message would upset me. If the healing didn’t occur, was it due to my lack of faith? This raises an important question… Read more

Written by George Washington on June 8, 1783, the president’s prayer for the United States is read aloud each day at Mount Vernon’s public wreath laying ceremony. The words (and spellings) are his own. It is every bit as appropriate today as it was then. “I now make it my earnest prayer, that God would have the United States in his holy protection, that he would incline the hearts of the Citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience… Read more

We Have Our Own Ideas… about how our lives should play out. We decide in advance where we should work, who we should marry, where we should live and how many kids we’ll have. I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but things rarely work out exactly the way we planned. St. Paul always wanted to visit Rome to share the Good News and strengthen the faith of those who lived there: For I long to see you, that I may… Read more

Can’t Find The Time To Pray? Sometimes it’s difficult to find time to pray. And even if you do have the time, it can be challenging to get away to a quiet place. Believe it or not, Jesus faced the same challenge. I wrote about it in my book – Stop Worrying & Start Living (2016, Dynamic Catholic). If you just can’t find the time to pray, take a look at what Jesus did. You might want to follow his… Read more

Can Prayer Change God’s Mind? Let’s suppose you want something to happen and the odds aren’t good. For instance, you want a certain job, but aren’t really qualified. Or maybe your husband has just been diagnosed with a serious illness and you can’t imagine how you would survive if he doesn’t recover. How about the situation where you’re “in love” with a woman at the office and want to ask her out on a date, but you think she’s out… Read more

Jesus is calling you to follow him. Really, he is. But, even though he is all powerful, he won’t force you to do it. In the readings from today’s Mass, we see examples of several people who were invited to follow the Lord. Some said “yes” and others said “no”. Here are a few things to consider as you look at the readings. Jesus Is Calling You The Lord is calling you to follow him on the path that will… Read more
