Dangerous Distractions

The big D’s can shipwreck a successful journey and life. If the enemy can’t get us to quit, his next step is to distract us. There are so many things to do now-a-days. There are so many programs to become involved. A lot of these are even good. In discussing distractions though, it isn’t about good, rather we need to focus on what it best. DANGEROUS DISTRACTIONS!

Heavens Declare

Sometimes we are in the right place at the right time and things are just awesome. Janiece and I were inside the Garden Of The Gods welcome center in Colorado Springs looking at postcards to purchase to send back home when I just thought to myself, “It sure would be great if I could take some photos like these. I am sure these photos were taken by people who live here who had the time to find these perfect moments.” After we went outside, I took a few more shots and then went back to the hotel. As I was cropping the image to share with some people, I was amazed at what I had captured. The Lord heard the cry of my heart and gave me one of those moments. HEAVENS DECLARE…

Courage To Succeed

In each country there are problems. The scenery is different, but people are still people. Each of our problems are unique and strangely similar to others. In desiring to live a good life we all struggle with opposing forces around us. Some live in the midst of war and battle while others live safe and secure. Each have their own problems to face. What will we do? How will we overcome? COURAGE TO SUCCEED… Read the rest of this entry »

True American Leadership

Over the years of my life, I’ve watched our elected officials journey from a place of servanthood to a place of trying to rule over us. There has been no more a blatant time in our history than that presently of our current government officials. This is unconstitutional and it is against the law in our country and gravely misrepresents who we are as a nation. The one president I remember the most as being a servant for the people was Ronald Reagan. In 1 Timothy 2:1-2, the scriptures tell us to pray for all people, but ALSO for those who are in authority. However, in America, those who are in the ULTIMATE AUTHORITY are not kings, rulers and presidents, but are “We The People”, not our elected officials. We need to understand the CORRECT ORDER set in place by God and by the LAW OF THE LAND if we are to PRAY for and GOVERN our nation effectively. Our elected officials are placed in a position and REQUIRED BY LAW to serve, to represent, (walk side by side with us), “We The People” and to fight for, and give their lives for, if necessary, to uphold the Constitution, not to try to rewrite it or change it to what they think it should be. Look at what our founding fathers did. They not only put their lives on the line on the battlefield, but then some of them HUMBLY SERVED our nation to help it become what it was, a LIGHT for all nations with a MESSAGE of freedom and hope to all. TRUE AMERICAN LEADERSHIP… THE REAL AMERICA! Read the rest of this entry »

The Selfish Giver

Are you a selfish giver? Do you give and give, but don’t like to receive? If so, you could be a selfish giver? How can you say that, you might add? Read on and I’ll show you what I am talking about. THE SELFISH GIVER! Read the rest of this entry »

Pioneers In Our Generation

Our trip from Texas to Colorado last week was a long one indeed, 1250 miles, but I couldn’t help but think of what it would have been like a hundred or more years ago to go this route. It took single individuals sometimes years to blaze these trails and over the years some of these trails have become highways and expressways. We can travel at legal speeds of around 75+ mph where they walked and scouted for months and years. Read the rest of this entry »
