How to Prosper and Succeed
Joshua told the people of Israel, “Study this Book of Instruction continually. Meditate on it day and night so you will be sure to obey everything written in it. Only then will you prosper and succeed in all you do.” Now, back then they didn’t have all 66 books like we do, but the implication […]
The key to getting what you pray for
Jesus said, “But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, you may ask for anything you want, and it will be granted!” WOOHOO!!! I’m asking for a new car and a maid and a nice new house and … Yeah, uhh, we have to look at this in context, y’all. Jesus […]

More than we ask for
Jesus was teaching His disciples (followers) about prayer. He told them examples of shameless persistence and instruction to keep asking, seeking, and knocking, that each has its own reward. Then he talked about parents, how they wouldn’t give the child who asks for something good something harmful. He noted that we’re such fallible, sinful folk […]
Honor Mom & Dad, period.
‘Honor your parents’ Paul wrote to the church at Ephesus, reminding them it was the first commandment that also carried a promise. That promise was, ‘things will go well for you, and you will have a long life on the earth.’ I’ve joked in the past that that meant your parents wouldn’t kill you, […]
Father to the fatherless. Defender of widows. Peace and Fear.
David, the man after God’s own heart once wrote a song that included, “Father to the fatherless, defender of widows— this is God, whose dwelling is holy.” What peace these words offer! What fear these words should invoke! Faye. Fear? What are you talking about? The peace delivered by these words is that when the […]
Love includes confrontation.
Peter wrote to believers in Jesus, “Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.” Because of my past, I had a real problem with that last phrase. Coverups aren’t a good thing to me. However, I fully believe that God gave those words to […]
How’s YOUR love game?
“Love is patient and kind” scripture tells us. “Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude” Paul wrote. “It does not demand its own way” God’s word declares. “It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged” the Good Book states. How’s YOUR love game? We hear these words so […]
Be blessed: Work for peace.
“God blesses those who work for peace, for they will be called the children of God.” -Jesus Seems simple enough, right? Except I believe in our time, we’ve gotten this somewhat misconstrued. Peace is not simply the absence of conflict. How many times have you been involved in a battle of some kind and have […]
