My son was in high school, and one fateful day my wife shared with me, “Joel hates you.” My stunned reaction was he doesn’t hate me. He knows that I love him, and I only want the best for him. I needed a dose of humility as a Father. My wife repeated the statement in another way so I could absorb her comment; well he can’t stand being around you most of the time. You hound him about his school… Read more

When life doesn’t go as planned learn to guard your heart against the root of bitterness. It begins as a small grudge. You feel slighted and left out of an important decision being made by your family.

I invite you to enjoy my presence, and even though I’ve always been with you, it takes a spiritual awakening to perceive and be aware of that reality.

(I am the Treasure you Seek)  I describe the full awareness of my kingdom as being born again which Nicodemus a religious leader… Read more

A major problem is you judge people in how they live their lives and what you like and don’t like about them. I challenge you to be slow to judge others and quick to… Read more

I know it’s easy to become entangled in the gossip game. It is human nature to engage in stories and accentuate the troubles and weaknesses of other people. Everyone loves to talk and be the focus of the narrative.

When you talk about others, it helps you hide and… Read more

For some, it is the outer edge of folly, and for others, it is the transcendent hope of our souls that the bread of heaven came down appeared and took on flesh and God became one of us. The enchantment of Christmas is the acknowledgment that the “Christ” child is “Immanuel” God with us. The baby born in Bethlehem is the eternal light of God and all the universe. (The day God lifted the lid off the sky!) At the… Read more

When you are young, you are never satisfied with what you have and… Read more

The moment you begin to pray there is a flurry of thoughts in your mind that hinder you from being able to focus upon me. (Calming My Restless Mind) You have memories that seem like they only happened yesterday but are decades old holding you a prisoner in your mind. Those memories recall hurtful words you spoke to someone or something someone said about you.  Without healing your past, you remain forever trapped in the self-imposed prison of your mind. Let… Read more

In your brokenness, you seek healing for your wounded heart. You ponder for hours on end why loved ones seem to take pleasure in attacking and hurting you. It’s natural to react negatively but don’t let their actions cause you to seethe with anger and resentful. Don’t allow being wounded to change the identity of who I created you to be. You suffer at the hands of those you trusted, and it impacts how you think about yourself. You remain… Read more
