Caring Enough to Ask

Here is a good word from Bruce Lengeman about caring for people. Do we care enough about people to know the condition of their heart? This convicted me. When People Don’t Care Enough to Ask, “How are things going with you?”  

Wheel of Family Life

Keeping balance in our lives isn’t easy -at least for me anyway! I get emails from Zig Ziglar and appreciate his focus on family life. At the end of this month they have a 7 day family challenge and I am looking forward to see what it is like. Here is a link to sign up to get the emails related to it. I also just finished filling out their questionnaire to see what the condition of our family is…

Interesting Stats

Are terrorist attacks from Muslim believers significant? It felt to me that Islamic attacks in the United States were on the rise but what does the data show? After a little research and some number crunching I came up with the following information. This is based solely on the research as shown on this page which was just updated within the last week.

Positions & the Kingdom of God

This morning I was reading a little from Rick Joyner’s book called “There Were Two Trees in the Garden.” He was contrasting the difference between the kingdom of this world and the kingdom of God. Here is a an excerpt that I thought was really good: Until God’s kingdom comes, men will incessantly form clubs, societies and boards in order to “feel a part” of something. There will be a striving for rank and recognition. To some degree this appeases…

CHRISTMAS – CHRISTIAN OR PAGAN?

Men are likened to sheep. And sheep have a tendency to follow the crowd without questioning. Jesus however came and taught us to examine everything by God’s word. The Pharisees exalted human traditions. Jesus exalted God’s word. Man was to live by every word that proceeded from God’s mouth (Matt. 4:4). The battle that Jesus was constantly engaged in with the Pharisees was the age-long battle of God’s Word versus human traditions. In the church, we are engaged in the…

Remembering September 11, 2001

Here is small list of things that come to my mind now Thousands in NY were killed, injured or had their lives turned upside down due to the towers collapsing The US took advantage of the situation and invaded Afghanistan…

A One Woman Man

Bruce Lengeman has wrote an excellent article explaining what is needed for a man to have a healthy relationship with his wife. It blessed me so I am passing it along. Ruthie: A notable incident happened around the second year of our marriage. Bruce was a youth leader, helping to host a weekend youth retreat along with a few other leaders from our church. Our baby girl and I went along. Many of the teens were being touched by God….

Take Every Thought Captive

It continually amazes me how much our thoughts/emotions have an affect on our physical body. Here is an article that shows the connection between our thoughts and sickness & disease. The article ends with this thought: An undisciplined mind is one filled with a continuous stream of thoughts, worries, fears and distorted perceptions, all of which trigger degenerative processes in the mind and body. We cannot afford not to ”bring all thoughts into captivity to Christ Jesus (2nd Corinthians 10:5)!…
