It really does only take one solid decision to change everything. Many people go on diets and completely wreck their self control. If that works for you, great! Keep at it. When I'm struggling with my diet, I just make one definitive decision for that week. By giving up one thing, it keeps me mindful… Continue reading This way to better health….
Thought for the day. What would happen if we really believed this? How would our thoughts and actions change? They would change radically! God is for us. God is for YOU. He is in our corner….our guide, advocate, Father, and helper. Picture Him with you. Because He is! The more you practice His presence, the more… Continue reading If? Not if. Definitely not.
One of my favorite pastors used to say, "there is a brilliant moment in every Christian's life where their faith intersects with God's faithfulness." Those are the rare but necessary cliff top moments where you step off in faith and find that He is faithful. It is when and where we have nothing to depend… Continue reading Cliff hangers! This is THE leap of faith. Brilliance below.
Wow! Today I attended the second of a Beth Moore Bible study called Breath. It's about the Holy Spirit. Today's lesson was on creativity and it was amazing.

Are you?

How to “faith it forward.” Today’s pick of the day.
In my younger days I was a bit ready-fire-aim. Life took its course and I was along for the ride. Things worked out ok though I made some unwise decisions along the way that had lingering consequences. As a result, I've ended up a whole lot more ready-aim-fire, which I suppose beats the alternative. Yet as a… Continue reading Pause? No. Ready-fire-aim vs. ready-aim-fire. Today’s pick of the day.
That was then, this is now. For years my climb up the corporate ladder was slow but steady. Eventually my work ethic and good attitude were the tools that gave me the leverage to succeed. Added to that over the years was the experience needed to understand things like quarterly reports, profit and loss statements, and… Continue reading Performance vs. Dependance! Only one wins. Today’s pick of the day.
