Sunday Rising

It is Sunday morning. I’m scheduled to preach in a few hours. I get up early to begin my day with prayer and reading God’s Word. The moon was in the dark stage last night, so as I sit on the back porch with my Bible and a cup of coffee, it is utterly dark outside. The sounds I hear are night sounds. Frogs and bugs are singing the songs that they have been given to sing. Two owls communicate over long distance about their night’s work. As I sit and listen to the night sounds, it occurs to me...


The God Who Hears

God is the great creator of all things. He is the grand architect of an ever expanding universe. He is The Master and Maker of all living things. He counts the stars in the sky and knows them by name. It is God who holds all authority and nothing is done without His permission. He holds the hearts of all of the rulers of this world in His hands. Those rulers don’t have time for me, but God does. He is my Father in Heaven and He loves to spend time with me.


Our God Reigns

Underneath the sun, the people rage and plot vainly against our omnipotent Lord. They imagine they can free themselves from His laws. Corrupt and wicked people conspire to do evil things to God’s righteous ones. Sometimes we feel as though we are being chewed up like bread. We wonder does God hear our prayers. Yes, He hears our prayers. From his throne in heaven, He laughs and ridicules the ones who conspire against Him and His chosen ones. We will prevail because in Heaven our God reigns.


God's Favorite Season

Fall must be God’s favorite time of the year. Look around see the weeds that you have fought all year, now doing a yellow victory dance! The leaves have fulfilled there obligation to the trees and now they proclaim God’s glory with a blast of colors. The cool nights make you reach for a blanket and the mild days are fore runners of heavens comfort. And what about the sun. God puts on a brilliant display with the sunrises and sunsets and it seems that even at mid- day the sunlight has a...


Overcoming The Second Law of Thermodymamics

When Adam sinned in the Garden of Eden, he unleashed the second law of thermodynamics upon the world. This law states, that when left alone everything will collapse, breakdown, or wear out. When God created this world it was perfect and incorruptible. The first man Adam, chose to rebel against God and sin entered into the world. The curse of sin brought death and destruction. Therefore, we have to work hard to maintain houses and machines and our bodies or they will deteriorate.



Here today and gone tomorrow is our life on this earth. Yes, life is brief but everlasting hope is found in Jesus. In Him we can find the Way we can travel, the Truth we can believe and Life that is eternal. “The Lord is righteous in all His ways and gracious in all His acts. The Lord is near to all who call out to Him. He fulfills the desires of those who fear Him. He hears their cry for help and saves them. The Lord guards all those who love Him. Let every living thing praise His holy name...


Hard Work

Satisfaction is sweet when it comes from a job well done. Sleep comes easy after a hard day’s work. A sweat soaked shirt is a badge of honor that is achieved with honest labor. Food tastes better when you have earned it with your own abilities. Work is a blessing from God. Throughout the Bible we find God honoring and blessing the people who work hard and earn their own food. But in 2 Thessalonians 3 we find God saying that a person who will not work should not eat.


I Believe

God has promised that with a little faith, we can prayerfully move mountains. If you have faith the size of a mustard seed, your prayers can bring healing to the sick, salvation to the lost and hope to the hopeless. This is true for all of us who believe in the power of Jesus our Savior. Sometimes in our human frailties, we struggle to believe this. But if we cry out to Jesus, He will help us in our unbelief.



A rich young man once asks Jesus how he could enter into Heaven. Jesus told him to sell all he had, give away the proceeds, and follow Him. Sadly, the young man missed Heaven because he could not turn loose of his stuff. Does this mean that riches and wealth are evil? No! It means that we must understand all we have comes from God. If you love your stuff more than you do Jesus, there is no place for you in Heaven. If you don’t have time for God now, He won’t have time for you later.


The Encourager

Joseph was his real name, but the Apostles nicknamed him Barnabas because Barnabas means, “Son of Encouragement”. He had the gift of encouragement and used it to inspire people to do their best for God. Even the greatest men in the Bible often needed encouragement. And God used Barnabas to inspire the hearts of at least two of the most important men in the New Testament. Listen to this podcast to hear more about The Encourager.


Close to the Master

God is our Master. He has promised us that He will never leave or forsake us. And He won’t. But we are prone to wander and be disobedient to the Father who loves us. His grace is sufficient and His Love is everlasting so He sends the thunder. When storms hit in our lives and we call out to God, He will hear us and let us in because He loves us and wants us to feel safe. We can always feel safe when we learn to stay close to the Master


The Thunder Rolls

When the lightning flashes and the thunder rolls, I will worship the Lord in the beauty of His holiness. I know that the voice of God thunders over the earth and is powerful and full of majesty. His voice speaks with the tenderness of a deer giving birth or the fierceness of an earthquake that brings down great buildings. In his temple everyone shout,” Glory!” The Lord is enthroned as King forever. Our God gives strength to His people forever. The Lord will bless His people with peace...


My Name Is Written Down

People often write things on their hands as reminders. But what they write is temporary, it will only last until they wash their hands. But God will never wash you from His hands. The Bible says that you are inscribed in His hand. That means that your name is not just written, it is carved into His Hand. It is permanent. Listen to this podcast to hear more about your name being written in the palms of God.


No Reserve, No Retreat, No Regrets

The Bible tells us that God’s plans are greater than our plans and His ways are greater than our ways. Bill Borden knew that obedience to God is the only way to be truly successful. His story is a challenge for us to surrender to God with no reserves, to follow Jesus with no retreats and to live in obedience to the Holy Spirit with no regrets. Listen to this Podcast to here the story of Bill Borden a man who served God with no reserve, no retreats and no regrets.


The Destroyer Of Hopelesness

Has hopelessness become a resident in your heart? The loss of a loved one may make you think that life can’t go on. Financial ruin can remove a roof from over your head. A disease diagnoses may put your future in doubt, or a prison sentence can convince you that your life is over. These things can rob you of your will to live and your hope for a miracle. But don’t let your heart drown in despair. The Bread of Life is here now. Jesus says; rise up and eat. So rejoice in the Lord and find joy...


Red Necks Don't

OK, I live in the south. I ask the blessing over my food and I say y’all. When I see my friend I ask him,” how’s your Momanem” and when a strange dog comes in my yard I holler, “gitonoutahere”. I am not afraid of hard work and I have a perfect farmers tan. The culturally elite sneer at me and call me a redneck. But I am not offended, because I am proud of my southern heritage.


Freed For Freedom

Long before the creation of Clark Kent, a.k.a. Superman, there were brave men who stood on truth, believed in justice and invented the American Way. These great men were the signers of the Declaration of Independence. These men were not bullet proof, but they were willing to face a hail of bullets for the sake of freedom. They firmly relied on the Protection of Divine Providence as they pledged to each other their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor in support of the Declaration of...



It is my belief that most people don’t care what the church looks like or where it is located. They don’t really care if the sermons are colorful or entertaining. What people want, what people need is sustenance. A church that provides the Holy nutrients that are needed to live and raise a family will be a growing church.



A daddy's heart is big. It has to be. It has to be big enough to hold strength, courage, wisdom and gentleness. A daddy needs to be brave enough to kill spiders and strong enough to open jars. He must be smart enough to fix a bicycle and gentle enough to eat imaginary cookies. A daddy's heart has the wisdom to let little hands do what they can and knows when to help and when not to help. Most daddies don't know how big their heart is, but it is big enough to love his children with an...


Enoch's Walk 2018

The Bible teaches "Children are a heritage from the LORD. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth.” Arrows are made to fly high and fly far. They are also made to fly straight and true. But it is the strength of the archer that bends the bow and launches the arrow. It is the skill of the archer that aims the arrow and hits the target. It is the wise archer who develops arrows to be true and straight.
