trouble 0


Trouble is part of life. Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” He didn’t say you might, could, perhaps, or possibly have trouble, but He said you would! Being a Christian does not exempt us from challenges and difficulties in life. So, what do we do when in the middle of trouble? James 1:2 gives us one specific instruction. It says, “…to count it all joy when you meet trials of various kinds.” What do we need to do – “COUNT IT ALL JOY”. It is easy to have joy...

Is Your “But” in the Way?

Before you click off this page let me quickly get to the point. This is going to help you! Why is it that every time you start to do something significant in your life you always put a big “but” in the way? Here’s what I mean: I need to read the Bible more … but I need to pray more … but I need to lose some weight… but I want to get in better shape… but I want my marriage to work… but. I need to stop this habit(smoking, drugs, drinking, porn, etc) … but I would like...

5 Things Jesus Would Do

A few years ago there was a very popular bracelet that had the letters “WWJD”, they stood for – “What would Jesus do”. It was a tool to remind us as Christians whenever we faced situations and decisions in are daily walk to ask ourselves that question and try to respond in the way Jesus would. I want to take that slogan and come at it from a little different perspective and ask the question this way, “What would Jesus do- if He were here right now?” Obviously there would be many things Jesus would be doing if He were...

When God Says No…

When our kids were growing up they would always go to their Mom when they wanted something. Why? Because they thought mom would say YES! They would avoid coming to me because they thought I would say NO. Often my wife would tell them you’re going to have to go and ask your Dad and they would say, “but Mom Dad’s just going to tell us no.” Now I can tell you that I did not always say no in fact I said yes often and most of the time when I said no I wanted to say yes. Our...

Expect the Worst and Hope for the Best?

Have you ever said, “expect the worst and hope for the best” or heard someone else say that phrase? I know that people mean well when they make that statement. I realize what they are trying to say, that we should be prepared if something doesn’t go according to plan. BUT, this is not the statement we need to be declaring over our lives. Why? We cannot be hoping and believing for the best if we’re expecting the worst. Expecting is really FAITH! “Faith is the assured expectation of things hoped for.” Hebrews 11:1 EXPECT THE BEST! I want to...

  Do you struggle with feelings of guilt or shame? If so, I have good news for you! You can overcome those feelings of guilt and experience complete freedom in your life. God never intended for you to struggle day after day with feelings of guilt, shame and condemnation. John 3:17 tells us, “God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved.” Unfortunately, many are held captive with feelings of failure and defeat because of guilt and shame. Feelings of guilt plague believers when they allow Satan...
