Clear the Fog   

There are always decisions to be made – going or staying, spending or saving, harboring or letting go. To make correct decisions, we can make all the pros and cons lists in the world, ask everyone for their opinion and sleep on it for many nights, but when it comes down to it, we must…

A Transformed Life

Recently, I watched a documentary about the Ketogenic diet. This diet is basically eating everything God has given us through nature. Processed, sugary and greasy foods are all off limits. Meats, vegetables, eggs, nuts and fruits are all up for grabs. The film detailed how this type of eating will change everyone’s life, no matter…

Be a Doer

But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man observing his natural face in a mirror; for he observes himself, goes away, and immediately forgets what kind of man he was. But he who…

Words Have Power

Scripture Reading: James 3 Words have power. Thinking back, I have said numerous things I wish I could have said differently or decided not to say at all. I can also point my finger on instances where I wish I could have said something, but decided to stay quiet. If words didn’t have power we…
