Freedom For All, Not Free For All

Freedom For All, Not Free For All “It’s a free country, I can do what I want.” Growing up, this is the tune my peers were always singing as they acted foolishly, mouthed off to authority figures, or walked in front of moving traffic. I used to roll my eyes in annoyance, because I knew they had no idea what freedom actually…

Trust God?

Trust God? Hebrews 3:19 (NKJV) So we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief. This scripture is a powerful statement and one that every Christian should know and take hold of. It is referencing the Israelites as a reminder to us that though God has delivered (saved) His people, they could not enter His promised land because they didn’t…

The Way Of Life

The Way Of Life Proverbs 14:12 (NKJV) There is a way that seems right to a man, but its end is the way of death. This scripture is one I meditate on often. Both as I judge myself and as I witness what others do, I am reminded of the importance of God’s plan, not mine. I recently over heard a conversation…

Led By A Pure Heart

Led By A Pure Heart Psalms 119:9  “How can a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed according to Your word.” One morning while reflecting on the goodness of God and His faithfulness to teach me continually, I asked Him, “how does one make their heart pure before You?”. Instantly, the above scripture entered my heart as I prayed. How does…

Don’t Drive the Dead Car

Don’t Drive the Dead Car I remember giving our oldest son his first car. It was our old car, but it was new to him. He was excited to get it, but it ended up being quite the learning experience for him. He had to pay insurance, he had to put gas in it, and he had to give it routine maintenance.…

Pressing On, Pressing Through

Pressing On, Pressing Through Philippians 3:13 (NKJV) Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead Often when someone who is troubled in life comes to God, they have a renewed vigor for life. Things start turning around, and it often seems…

I Believe In Stuff Like That

I Believe In Stuff Like That While on the NYC subway recently, I overheard a conversation a few strangers were having. They apparently discovered something in common throughout the course of their conversation and one man said it must have been “a sign”. He said, “I believe in stuff like that.” While I believe in divine appointments, what the man meant was…

When the Heat’s On

When the Heat’s On When the Israelites had been taken into the captivity of Babylon, there were three young men, friends of Daniel, who refused to worship the golden idol as King Nebuchadnezzar had demanded. The consequence of their failure to comply was that they’d be thrown into the fiery furnace, meant to die in their disobedience to the king. As seen…

What The Season Permits

What The Season Permits Genesis 8:22 “While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, Cold and heat, Winter and summer, And day and night Shall not cease.” Waiting is not a popular thing. I was always so impatient, I never wanted to wait for anything. I remember one year when I was a kid I decided to snoop for Christmas presents. When I…
