To God Be the Glory!

Happy New Year!

Isaiah 42:9
Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.

Functioning in Dysfunction : hmm???

Too often in life, many people become experts at functioning in their dysfunction.

How do you recognize when your life is so dysfunctional?

Have you survived this way so long that you don’t know what it is like to live any other way?

Have you learned to cope so long that you would not recognize normality if it suddenly entered your life?


Do you recognize how dysfunctional you are and you don’t know what to do about it?

Are you sick and tired from coping and pretending that everything in your life is okay?

Do you view normality as being so far from you that you see it, but it appears to be beyond your grasp?

Merry Christmas!

May your Christmas Day be filled with joy and peace. Remember that Jesus is the true reason for the season.

Isaiah 9:6
For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

What Do You Do When You Don't Know What To Do?

Sometimes the dilemmas that we are faced with, in life, present us with choices that we don't like. We don't like either side of the dilemma. However, we know that if we want a different outcome, we must do something different.

When life is so full of choices, do you continue to play it safe and keep getting the same outcome, or do you venture out and hope to discover something new?

Prayer: Bridle My Tongue!

Psalm 141:3 Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.

Dear Heavenly Father,
Enable me to bridle my tongue when I am tempted to say things that I will later regret or things that I don’t necessarily mean. Teach me to say what you would say concerning all situations, and help me to know that when I respond in silence that silence is not a bad thing. Even Your son, Jesus, responded in silence as He took his finger and wrote on the ground in John 8:6. Thank you, Father, that I understand that bridling the tongue is a practice of true Christianity because your Word says in James 1:26 that If anyone considers himself religious and yet does not keep a tight rein on his tongue, he deceives himself and his religion is worthless.

In Jesus’ name,

Psalm 141:3 Set a guard over my mouth, O LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips.

Work With What You Got

When God created you, He created one of a kind. No one can beat you at being you. Learn to love and appreciate the person that God created. Accentuate what you have and know that no amount of complaining will change your weight, your shape, or your features. If you can not make it up, shape it up, or exercise it away - learn to deal with it!

Psalm 139:14
I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made: ...
