    Play it forward

    “If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place.” – Nora Roberts I was sitting around one day pondering life, and a thought crossed my mind.  I thought about how miraculous it is that babies can live in a womb, without even being able to breath.  For me I was thinking on the surface – If a person stops breathing or cannot breathe, then certainly they can’t live.  The miracle of life, and how God facilitated it is so amazing.   How God infused the human spirit into…

    A time and a season

    “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” – Ecclesiastes 3:1 There is the saying,  “Everything happens for a reason.”  I hear it all the time, especially when things don’t turn out the way we want them too.   Is this really truth; biblical?  Are we predestined for everything that happens to us?  NO We all have a purpose; however, we also have free will to make choices on how we live.  Sometimes the circumstances that follow certain decisions, are a good indication, that not everything happens for a reason.  It’s not based on Karma either, that is a twisted version of the…

    To new beginnings

    “Live a life of inspiration, and of passion.  Anything else is eating away at time, and dying a slow painful death, rather than living.  Toiling and laboring for nothing but bread and futility.  Man cannot live on bread alone.  There is a purpose, a time and a season, and a God that oversees it all.”  – Amanda Batten “Make each day a masterpiece, we do not remember the days, we remember moments.”  Laughing with family and friends until it hurts, odd moments that are perfect because they are not, and will live forever in stories.  We may already be into the New Year, but it’s never too late for new…

    Steps of faith

    “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went they were cleansed.”  – Luke 17:14 I can envision Simon the leper; cast away from all he knew, hiding behind a Rock.  Watching and waiting for Jesus to come heal him from his afflictions.  Jesus came through the village between Galilee and Samaria, which was situated to hold all who were diseased with leprosy.  It was believed back then that if you had disease it was surely because you had sin in your life. Little did Simon know that the Lord would use such an affliction to show His glory and power to the leaders of that day.   Simon probably lost…
