“…The point that I make is that we can take our BUSINESS SAVVY and translate it to a ‘spiritual setting,’ and vice-versa…”

Matthew 4:18-20 – Now as Jesus was walking by the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon who was called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen. And He said to them, “Follow Me, and I will make you fishers of men.” Immediately they left their […]

“….You can do it…you got all it takes to succeed… don’t take no for an answer; don’t let the devil get a foot-hold…”

Dear Friends….I am on a short retreat and am very busy preparing for a wonderful and “life-saving-opportunity” …one that I would like to share with you…so listen on.  I refer to this as a “re-treat” because I’m literally “retreating from the worldly pressures” that so often we allow to take-over our lives; prohibiting us from […]

“…He works with his hands, but his hands are an extension of his BRAIN, which is an extension of his HEART….”

I have a new friend, of about two years, who is a “master craftsman.” Billy can build anything; prices it fairly; is good at giving advice to others; a good family man and  friend; an encourager; a giver; funny; neat and clean; he’s wise, well educated and well spoken…. just a good Christian gentleman.  He works […]

“…Moving over,” sometimes, is just as important as “moving up….”

Moving over, sometimes, is just as important as “moving up.” It all goes back to having a POA…Plan of Action. Listen to me….without a specific POA, as a future Leader…you’re sucking air.  Doomed.  Bouncing around…day-to-day…year-to-year…without a POA is a dead-end-career in the making.  As I began my career in 1960; I was going the “national company” […]

“… you probably wonder why I have a friend like that…but wait; don’t we all…”

I saw God today!  Many of us go through life…NEVER seeing or hearing God.  I was out in about with a friend today when this great event happened.  I saw God…but my friend did not.  I talked to God, but he did not.  We BOTH had the same OPPORTUNITY, but I took the Lord up on His […]

“… We NEVER know how encouraging someone could change their lives entirely; or even, possibly the results of the next NFL National Championship….”

We all like “words of encouragement” from time to time.  I KNOW that it would make my life easier; how about you?  Think for a moment… who did you hear or see getting some form of “encouragement” in the last 48 hours?  Anyone?  I bet not many…. Now for another question.  How many people have […]

“…Doesn’t ANGER add to the burden we are already carrying without adding more weight to it…?”

Too often, too many of us seem to harbor resentment, anger, frustration, and hate… with one-another.  WHY?  If we had a good answer for that… well…we don’t.  I suspect that it was passed down from the Cain and Able episode.  I heard a story on one of the TV Evangelist shows where a visiting preacher […]

“…and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing….”

If you’ve been reading much of what I’ve written in the last year, then you would be aware that I experienced a “epiphany” of sorts, about two years ago, and after a period of denial, I took it to heart, as shown in…Matthew 28:19 – Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in […]

“…My big disappointment was that I lost my best friend, confidant, and mentor…”

Mentor Rejection:  This term seems to have taken on a life of its own, with the unexpected and untimely passing of comic Joan Rivers.  I had forgotten about the relationship and mentorship of Tonight Show Host Johnny Carson and Joan Rivers.  She became his permanent substitute during the 6-8 weeks per year that he took […]

“…There is no coincidence, consequence, condition, happening, or function that is not part of God’s Plan….”

Ever wonder why earth and the solar system operate with such precession?  Take all the scientific facts and note that everything is in such precise terms.  All the birds of the air do certain things at certain times, all with precession.  The same for all other animal species…and the fish of the sea; everything for […]
