FACING THE UNREPENTANT   All of us at some point in our lives will have a friend, a love one, or someone else in our life that refuses to repent. No matter what you say to them or how you try to frame it, they just won’t relent on their unrepentance. It could be a child, a parent, a friend, a co-worker, a spouse, a neighbor, or someone you don’t even know well that God has asked you to go… Read more

THE MYSTERY OF 23: GOD SPEAKS, AGAIN!     And so, It begins, AGAIN.   Not in the dead of night this time, but in the middle of a warm summer day while taking a walk with my entire family near the base of Lake Erie on July 16, 2017.   I was on sabbatical from pastoring Vanguard for the past 20 years.   I was in Cleveland, Ohio at a Christian and Missionary Alliance Camp called Beulah Beach, where… Read more

THE MYSTERY OF 23: GOD SPEAKS It began at 1:23 a.m. Something or possibly someone awakened me out of a deep sleep. I sat straight up in the bed, sensing a presence in my room.

The red numbers – 1:23… Read more

HEARING GOD’S VOICE AND OBEYING IN OUR SORROWS Someone once said, “The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world.” They must have been thinking about the story of Hannah and Samuel in 1 Samuel when they said that. Hannah was a barren woman who longed to have children. She cried to God in her sorrows. God wants to meet us in our sorrows. Maybe you feel “small” today in your life.

DOES GOD SPEAK TO YOU? Someone once said, “it is normal to say, ‘I talk to God.’ But when you say, ‘God talks to me.’ That’s when everyone thinks you are crazy!” Believe it or not, God wants to speak directly to you. Jesus said in John 10, “My sheep hear my voice.” Some of us have never heard God’s voice or if we have, we didn’t know it was God’s voice. How do we learn to hear God’s voice?… Read more

How Not To Be A Discouragement To Others Sometimes I get discouraged. How about you? When I get discouraged, sometimes, I become a discouragement to others around me. It is one thing to be discouraged. It is an entirely different thing to be a discouragement to others.

I lose sight of what matters, and I become a detriment to… Read more
