(Fatherhood) Shoot Your Arrows Accurately

Posted on 2 CommentsPosted in Faith, Family

(Fatherhood) Shoot Your Arrows Accurately      Fatherhood is a blessing from the Lord. I never fully understood this truth growing up. I think my lack of acknowledgment was mainly true, because I was so preoccupied with other things. Let’s call it youth and immaturity. It never dawned on me to really consider and evaluate the […]

The Fiery Furnace of Affliction      Yesterday, my family and I found ourselves, once again, in a new church. We’ve been searching for a place to worship permanently in our new city and it’s been a long four month road for us. We’ve found a few places and have met many quality people along the […]

   Encouragement Reciprocates Encouragement reciprocates from one to another. Do you agree? I often find myself talking, texting, and writing various forms of encouragement to family members, friends, coworkers, and often total strangers and realize afterwards that I too received encouragement and a sense of feeling good in the process. I read something in one […]

Power To Choose

Power To Choose      Power and choice are explosive elements, especially when paired together. This powerful force assists towards one’s fate. I dare say, “People love to be empowered and the ability to choose under such conditions becomes freeing, enjoyable, and often unpredictable. It is even addictive in the most positive sense.” Point-being, people love to have choices! I often think that when […]

Laughter is a Gift God provides us with a series of immeasurable gifts, Himself at the top, and it occurred to me recently that laughter is one of them… We are created in His image, so it’s not hard to believe that God Himself laughs too. Can you imagine? God laughs in sincere amusement alongside […]

Wealth Is Much More

When you hear the word “wealth,” what comes to your mind? Most people, if answering honestly, think of money, riches, and material possessions.
