With the final debate complete and less than two weeks until the election, have you made up your mind? When I look at the candidates running in the 2020 Presidential election, I see two vastly different individuals. Which, if any, deserves my vote? The short answer is that neither deserves a vote nor the opportunity … Continue reading Who Deserves My Vote?
On this Father's Day, God placed before my eyes a passage in Matthew, leading up to the birth of Jesus, where Joseph learned that Mary was pregnant (Matthew 1:18-23). I couldn't help wondering what it was like for him at that time. I can only imagine the range of emotions that flooded his mind and … Continue reading Pondering a Father
I watch the news and see the shooting, rioting, and protesting that has erupted around the country. It saddens me that people cannot put personal differences aside and live in harmony with one another. Allow me to quote from Jack Nicholson in Mars Attacks...1 It does not matter what anyone has done or will do … Continue reading Why Can’t We All Just, Get Along?
On our own, no one seeks God. Human nature is inherently prideful and selfish. Everyone who has found faith in Christ has a story illustrating God's work in his or her life. For some, God's dealings are subtle and barely noticeable. Such individuals are more receptive to the influence of the Holy Spirit than others, … Continue reading Remember
I came across the following verse as I was reading my Bible the other day. It falls amid a passage dealing with one's placement in life; whether an individual is married or single, slave or free. 17 Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called … Continue reading Life Assigned
When I make a promise, I do so, hoping that it is a part of God's will for me to fulfill it. From a human perspective, promises are declarations of intent. An individual intends to do something for someone else or with someone else in mind, but like any plans that a person makes, it … Continue reading Trust His Promises
What thoughts come to mind when you wake overnight? What are your first reflections of the day? When your mind wanders during the day, where does it go? What do you dream about? And where do our thoughts come from? For the most part, what our minds process and bring forth comes from our experiences: … Continue reading What’s On Your Mind?
God speaks to us in many ways. Sometimes it is through His written Word. Sometimes it is through a preacher, teacher, or friend. At times He speaks in dreams or random thoughts throughout the day. And at others, He speaks through written materials outside of the Word of God. Each day, I read two devotionals, … Continue reading The Voice of God
Today's post is one that I have been thinking a lot about for the last several weeks, and I'm excited to publish it. It is about the reality of God's omnipresence. God exists everywhere. Does it then follow that every molecule of the physical universe is a part of or extension of God Himself? One … Continue reading Omnipresence and Free Will
Before I got out of bed this morning, I found my mind drifting back to when I was in high school, shortly after my accident. When I left the rehab center, I resumed my junior year of high school, then midway through. Our homeroom assignments were designated according to grade and name in alphabetical order. … Continue reading The Thought Master
