Jesus in Mathew 6:34 wants to encourage us, “Don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.” (NLT) We need to contemplate how to live in the present now of today because there is no tomorrow in real time. Everything beyond the present moment exists as an illusion we create in our mind. Time lives in the present moment, and Jesus is teaching us don’t let the cares and worries of a… Read more

We all would like to know when we should risk moving on to a new phase of life. The words, “It’s time to move on!” is a more natural way of stating the obvious and far less hurtful than hearing the critical judgment from others, “You need to just, get over it and move on.” We can imagine the nightmare of floundering awash in negative thoughts with our hearts broken from the death of loved ones and the constant heartache… Read more

We soon discover trying to stop our thinking is about as helpful as a cow’s persistence to shoo flies away on a summer day. When we engage our insecurities and fears within our strength, it creates even more troubling anxiety. One nagging thought on top of another.

For some, it is the outer edge of folly, and for others, it is the transcendent hope of our souls that God came down appeared and took on flesh and became one of us. The enchantment of Christmas is the acknowledgment that the “Christ” child is “Immanuel” God with us.

Jesus knew when we focus our attention only on the here and now there is little hope of finding peace in the turbulence of the storms we encounter.

1 Corinthians 15:20 “But Christ has indeed been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep.” One of the mysteries the apostle Paul writes about in the New Testament is the spiritual transformation in our heart that unfolds with the realization we are divine partakers of the nature of the resurrected Christ, we are the first fruits of a new kingdom and humanity. Christ opens our eyes to see a new realm of being, being alive… Read more

The quest to answer “Who am I?” is shrouded in mystery for it is a search to find the essence of our being and personal identity.  Beyond the story-lines of our pasts, the heartbreaks and the triumphs in our lives Christianity and other spiritual traditions endeavor to explain and resolve the reason and purpose for our existence by answering the question “Who am I?” Through thousands of years of history, we understand there is no conclusive answer for the incredible… Read more
