While I was driving recently, the Humpty Dumpty nursery rhyme came to my mind.


Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall,

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

All the king’s horses and all the king’s men

Couldn’t put Humpty together again.

“It’s not worth it!”

How often do we feel that way when we make some kind of sacrifice for God or others?  I tend to be strategic with my choices.  I’m willing to take a chance if I think there can be a “win.”  If I think the other person is not going to respond well, I...

Yes.  That is what she said in response to what to my question about the meaning of grace.  I decided to leave her response alone until a second response came that was similar.  With the second answer, much like Jeremiah (20:9) there was a fire lit inside of...

I feel our ability to cook is slowly slipping away, and being replaced by fast food, prepared food, and 1,000’s of recipes at the tips of our fingers.  Sure we are “cooking” but do we really have an understanding of what we are really doing? Do we understand portions,...

Most people I know are hoping to strike it rich in the area of friends.  “No.  That one didn’t work.  Cross him off the list!”  People often gamble that this will be “the one” and lose.

I teach a trust lifestyle.  The person going into the trust lifestyle...

I have watched my dad in his aging process.  I am facing my own “not what I used to be.”  What works during one stage of life does not necessarily work in the next.

My dad and I both have lived life from a standpoint of crises are faced with great effort.  I am rem...

We like to believe that our minds have the ability to decide but most of our decisions are actually made at a deeper level:  the heart.

Many who give the mind a leading role in spiritual experience, quote Proverbs 23:7a, “As he thinks in his heart, so is he is” (NKJV)....
