We need to train our eyes to see God’s presence, not His absence. God is everywhere, doing something eternal in a very awesome and perfect way. Though we may not understand it, though we may not physically see it, it’s important that we look for it. “For God is at work in you who believe” (1 Thessalonians 2:13).… Read the rest

Whatever we’re looking for is what we will always see. To paraphrase Helen Keller, the greatest human tragedy is not blindness, but having seeing eyes and yet cannot see. Jesus said, “The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness” (Matthew 6:22-23).… Read the rest

Often when I have been surrounded with struggles, I feel like the lion tamer who put an ad in the paper: “Lion tamer – wants tamer lion.” Attitude is everything. Our attitude will either protect us or defeat us. Life is really not about the battle outside us, but the one that lies within us.… Read the rest

It’s been said that everyone has two tongues in their lives. One in their mouth and the other in their shoes. The one in their shoe never lies. It’s always pointed in the direction that they’re going. So definitely be careful of what you say, but more importantly, watch what you do. For your actions truly speak louder than words.… Read the rest

Walt Disney taught, “Don’t think outside the box! For once you say that, you’ve established that there is a box.” Too often we dream the size of man. Dream bigger. Our God is limitless. Our God is endless. “To Him who is able to do superabundantly more than all we dare ask, dream, or imagine” (Ephesians 3:20). Never forget that He really does only what we believe He can do.… Read the rest

As life is leveraged, is your dream growing? Don’t live life with regret. Dream big. Don’t let your childhood sense of imagination get tabled, or even worse, lost. God is not finished. What He birthed in your heart when you were a child, was no accident. He’s now grown you to a place that it can happen.… Read the rest

The shortest pencil is better than the longest memory. As one of my former pastors would always say to me, “Let it go.” There’s a sense, as a leader, that we must develop a sense of amnesia. As the circle of influence grows, so do the critics. So whether you make a mistake, or someone is criticizing, learn we must, but letting go is not an option.… Read the rest

The greatest sin for a Christian is lukewarmness. Jesus said, “Because you are lukewarm – neither hot nor cold – I am about to spit you out of My mouth” (Revelation 3:16). The first time I read this, it was painful, but I believe Jesus is encouraging us not to let the world come between our love and desire of Him. He is the fulfillment and the fullness to everything. Read His Word. Talk to Him in Prayer. And watch what He will do.… Read the rest

The gladness of the heart is spending time in the Spirit. How much time do you give to prayer? How much time do you stop and just ponder in God’s Spirit? Our greatest joy can only come from the One who gives joy – and that is God. Don’t let a day (that He made) end without at least telling Him, “Thank You.”… Read the rest

Billy Graham, at a college graduation commencement stated, “Time is the capital that God has given us to invest. People are the stocks in which we are to invest our time, whether they’re blue chips or penny stocks or even junk bonds.” The greatest investment we can ever make with our time is people. Who are you investing in?… Read the rest
