Honesty -- the Only Policy

No accounting was required from the construction supervisors, because they were honest and faithful workers.

2 Kings 12:15 NLT

 

The basis of credibility is integrity. Trustworthiness hinges on truth. Supervisors of Temple repairs were uncompromisingly honest, so no accounting…

Free to be Who I Am

I’m not sure I’ve ever known anyone who loved their pastor more than my wife loved hers. Joanne grew up as a member of Trinity Baptist Church in San Antonio where Buckner Fanning was her pastor. I learned a lesson early in our marriage, that led to a decision that, partially at least, shaped my ministry. I learned that Bucker was…

Jehu paid no attention to walking in the law of the Lord, the God of Israel, with all his heart.

2 Kings 10:31 THE AMPLIFIED BIBLE

 

A graph of your spiritual course would show a recurring pattern of three steps forward, two steps backward, three steps…

Divine Hospitality

 

Let’s make a little room for him on the roof and furnish it with a bed, a table, a chair, and a lamp.

Then he will have a place to stay whenever he comes by.

2 Kings 4:10 NLT

 

I am your Shepherd—All You Ever Really Need in life. Since you have unlocked heaven’s treasure chest with…

Does Anyone Believe in You?

With four seconds left in the game and trailing the Saints, 24-23, Vikings quarterback Case Keenum lofted a desperation pass to Stefon Diggs near the New Orleans 35-yard line. After Diggs went high in the air to snag the pass, coaches yelled at him to get out of bounds so the Vikings could attempt a last-second field goal.

But Diggs disregarded his coaches. When no one tackled him, he decided to head for the end zone instead of going out of bounds. In one of the most amazing finishes…

Intro to book: Aligning with God

Introduction

My friend who read my prior book, Houston, we have a problem, concluded, “You recognize that   PROBLEMS are just OPPORTUNITIES in DISGUISE.” The apostle Paul was vulnerable enough to share his own problems with us in Romans 7:15-20 (MSG)  What I don’t understand about myself is that I decide one way, but then I act another, doing things I absolutely despise. So if I can’t be trusted to figure out what is best for myself and then do…

Searching for God

   

He took the cloak that had fallen from him and struck the water with it.

“Where now is the Lord, the God of Elijah?” he asked.

When he struck the water, it divided to the right and the left, and he crossed…

2018: Your Year of New Beginnings

I’ve never spent much time thinking about Biblical numerology. But this year is different.

As we enter into 2018, I find myself thinking about the number “8” – God’s number of resurrection and new beginnings.

If you want a detailed explanation, I suggest a Google search. But here are a few simple observations:

  • Since 7 is God’s number of completion, 8 starts a new cycle of things.
  • Jesus rose from the dead on the first day of the week, which was the…

Let Go and Let God

One of the gifts I've received during my 38 years of sobriety is the gift of hindsight.  When I first joined AA, I didn't know what I thought about God.  Well, I felt a lot of guilt.  That guilt kept me from having a real relationship with Him in the beginning.  But by working the steps and probably by time passing , I grew to let Him into my heart.  Little by little, He showed me how He was taking care of me.  And now I have the gift of being able to look back at all those…
