The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are Spiritually discerned. (1 Corinthians 2:14 NIV) Motivating Monday! Good news! The Bible brings clarity to every situation on earth. To understand, we have to accept Jesus as our personal Savior, or we will be the person without The Spirit. When trying to explain Spiritual discernment, we cannot expect all individuals to understand. Do they find foolish? You bet- and foolishness is all that will follow as long as we […]
Moses summoned all the Israelites and said to them: Your eyes have seen all that the Lord did in Egypt to Pharaoh, to all his officials, and all his land. With your own eyes you saw those great trials, those miraculous signs and great wonders. But to this day, the Lord has not given you a mind that understands, or eyes that see or ears that hear. (Deuteronomy 29:2-4, NIV) Motivating Monday! Hello! Seems like I’ve been away so, nice to be back home. We had an exciting end to our middle child’s summer baseball- winning Babe Ruth State Tournament, […]
Do not be deceived: “Bad company corrupts good morals.” (1 Corinthians 15:33 ESV) Motivating Monday! This past weekend and starting today, many kiddos are heading back to college.

Destruction and Death say, ‘Only a rumor of it has reached our ears.’ God understands the way to it and he alone knows where it dwells, for he views the ends of the earth and sees everything under the heavens. When he established the force of the wind and measured out the waters, when he made a decree for the rain and a path for the thunderstorm, then he looked at wisdom and appraised it; he confirmed it and tested it. And he said to man, ‘The fear of the Lord- that is wisdom, and to shun evil is understanding. […]
The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like the cedar of Lebanon; planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God. They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green, proclaiming, “The Lord is Upright; he is my Rock, and there is no wickedness in him.” (Psalm 92:12-15 NIV) Motivating Monday! Monday needs to be positive and motivating! What sounds better than knowing God’s righteous ones will flourish like a palm tree, bearing fruit in old age, and staying fresh and green? This sounds […]
