Giving Up Too Soon

Too often, when something is difficult, we give up. But things that are worth it, take hard work, and time. Fred Astaire’s first screen test garnered such criticism as “Can’t act. Can’t sing. Balding. Can dance a little.” Elvis Presley’s eighth grade music teacher told him he had no “aptitude” for singing. Sometimes it’s not others who tell us to quit. Quite often it’s circumstances. Can you believe Michael Jordan wasn’t allowed on his varsity …

A Prayer for the Election

Dear Lord, I pray for the upcoming election. Please let Your will be done, not ours. Just because someone attends church or claims to be a Christian, does not always mean it is true. You know the hearts of those running far better than we do. Lord, allow the winner to not only get the electoral vote, but the popular vote as well to calm some of the complaints. Let us know the true winner …

SPOILER ALERT: There will be a spoiler near the end of this blog, so if you didn’t watch the final to America’s Got Talent (AGT) and plan to do so, stop reading.

Finding God Unexpectedly

I love it when I’m listening to a song or watching something on television and God is mentioned unexpectedly. That occurred the other day. When I’m working out, I like to listen to oldies rock. The other day, the song “Get Together” by The Youngbloods came on. Here are some of the lyrics that made me sit up straighter: “Some may come and some may go, We shall surely pass, When the one that left …

Learning to Trust

“Put the camera down and let’s play ball!” You were abused in your past. Hurt by someone you loved. Cheated on. Abandoned. These are all ways we lose our trust in others. It takes time to overcome these issues, even when it comes to trusting God. It’s hard to understand a God you call Father if your own father abused or abandoned you. Just know that God is nothing like any father here on Earth. …
