I was sitting looking out my window on Monday; the public utilities company from the city was pruning trees. A big truck came by and cut back every branch, limb and leaf that had grown beyond certain parameters and was hanging over the road. I stopped them to ask was this customary? The gentlemen stated that during the summer, the trees are pruned back so that during stormy seasons there will be a decrease in the damage...

“And every one who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven but those who blaspheme against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven.” Luke 12:10 - Our traditional thinking is that revival occurs, when we have a program and invite and evangelist to come and to preach a word; and, we shout and run and praise our God and it is over after three nights. God is saying to me that we are not having a week of revival but we are in a season of revival. . .

“I know the plans that I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare and not evil to give you a future and a hope.” This is a passage that we know all too well. We use it to encourage ourselves when we are going through trials; and, when it seems that powers and principalities are coming against our future. We remind ourselves, through these words from Jeremiah, God has a plan for each and every one our lives; and, it is a plan of prosperity...

There is a divine connection between our spiritual lives; and, the forty days of self-denial and self-discipline associated with the Lenten season. The anointing on the forty days is, in my strong opinion, the reason that it is such a challenge to designate this time in devotion to our Lord. The biblical number forty is not foreign to us. Many people have written about the forty day journey into the wilderness in scripture. If we only use the story of Moses....

You know God can bring lessons during any moment, through anyone and by anything! My latest lesson came through the frying of a grilled cheese sandwich. Yep, I said it; grilled cheese sandwich! I had buttered the bread like I normally do and placed it in the cast iron skillet. At the same time, the phone rang and something the newscaster was saying on the television caught my attention. Innocently losing focus, I took my eyes off my original...

If just learning from your mistakes builds good character then all of us would have it! However, learning from mistakes simply teaches us how not to do the same thing again or the same thing the same way again.  The decisions that we make after learning the lessons can either build "Bad" character or "Good' character. Character development is similar to building blocks. There are many different blocks on our life’s journey of building...

As I heard the woman of God encourage the parishioners from the pulpit, a rush of hope jetted through my body.  Though it felt like the streams of hope were traveling at record speeds, they stopped at each major vital vein and artery depositing its power and leaving traces of its presence.  I bet a million of my cells could be a witness to this awesome Word.

It felt as if every organ could stand up and testify.  Just as my heart was about to do back flips, I yelled “Thank you Jesus!”

People are getting up every morning going to the job that they hate, they work for money that they're worth more than, they work for people they don't like, they do things they don't want to do, they go home to a house that's full of friction, they watch television programs that depress them, they go to a bed and sleep back to back with their spouse without speaking to them and wake up the next morning to do it all over again; And they do that for 30 or 40 years...

You’re real life is not really the life that goes on around you. It’s not event the life that everybody thinks that you have. Your real life is the life that’s in you. It’s what’s going on in you. The kingdom of God is in you, the Bible says…  When Jesus came to offer us a new life, he offered us really, first and foremost, a very special inner life. Yes, He helps us with our circumstances but He’s also telling people that no matter what your circumstances are you can have a great life...

"I am praying...your body is as healthy as...your soul." 3 John 2 TLB

We all know how important physical health is; here's a plan for keeping your soul in shape:

(a) Don't question your faith, question your doubts. We spend too much time dwelling on our misgivings, experiencing faith as an occasional flash-in-the-pan. God's promises are for 'believers.'

(b) Don't be a 'lone ranger.' It's no accident that the Old Testament contains the story of God's people, and that the Epistles were written to congregations. We grow as we relate - not isolate!

(c) Guard your thought life. If your "thinking is controlled by the sinful self, there is death. But if [it's] controlled by the Spirit, there is life and peace" (Ro 8:6 NCV).

Practice mind management!

(d) Fall asleep and wake up immersed in gratitude. It'll transform your day. "In every thing give thanks!" (1Th 5:18).

(e) Ditch anything that distracts you from God. Toss the junk reading material, and if you've got the guts, throw in the TV!

(f) Always err on the side of mercy. Philip Yancey writes: "I marvel at the humility of a God who descends to live inside...his 'flawed' creatures...Do I show that same attitude towards people of whom I disapprove?"

(g) Be specific and don't revert to generalities when discussing your faith. Paul wasn't "ashamed of the Gospel" (Ro 1:16); neither should you be.

(h) Be gracious to the people who irk you. God chose them too! Sometimes it's easier to be gracious to non-believers than to uptight, moralistic Christians. But that just makes you a different kind of judgmental.

(i) Forgive those who've hurt you. Harboring hatred hinders healing, so bring your hurts to God.
