“Comparison is the thief of joy.”My friend, Stacey, quoted that to me years ago when we were talking about one thing or another. I don’t recall the conversation now, we’ve had countless ones throughout the years, but that quote stood out to me as a deep hitting truth.And throughout the years I’ve seen it ring […]
We often lose sight of the incredible blessings we have because the small hitches and drawbacks of life tend to overshadow them in the daily requirement to deal with them. (When we have a problem we must address over and over, we can’t help but keep it at the forefront of our thoughts.) That is why […]
Often in life, we get caught up in all of the things being said around us. The co-worker who constantly complains, the facebook friend who has their status set on perma-whine. Negative people seem to have the ability to suck us into a vortex of gloom and cynicism and it can get to a point […]
We are all guilty of longing for what others have. A house, a job, a seemingly perfect life, a talent, or even a disposition. When surrounded by people with different things, different situations, it is a natural human response to compare and consider what our lives would be like if only…And then there is how […]
I had the hardest time learning how to swim as a child. People would try to teach me, goodness knows how many hours they spent in that, but I never could quite get it. I’d let go of the side and sink like a lead weight. Then, in second grade I checked out a book […]

Our current world and national news cycle is moving so fast that just trying to keep up is nearly impossible – and it is a lot to take in. A LOT. With all that is going on, if you’ve never kept a Sabbath as set out by the Father, I want to encourage you to […]
This morning I’m thinking of how stiff-necked we are. Stubborn, sure of our ways regardless of mounting evidence proving our own folly. We rush right on, head first, full speed ahead. Blinded by human arrogance, worshipping the faulty wisdom of the god in the mirror. A study on stiff-necked: “The plow was usually drawn by […]
I felt compelled to have a heart to heart chat last night and five minutes later sat down to do this live video in my Facebook groups. My hope is that it will encourage you as a Believer living in Babylon today and help you to stay in the Word!
In this chat video I talk about some of the obstacles we deal with when approaching the Bible and our relationship with the Father from a western mindset.

Good morning! I wanted to quickly address the doctrine of “Once saved always saved”. First of all, I want to be most clear on one topic: The privilege of granting salvation belongs to the Father. It is His to give as He chooses in His wisdom. We are not in a position to dare attempt […]
These notes were initially part of but removed from Ezekiel 13-15 before publication of that post. I’m fixin’ to recap and repeat myself a bit but it leads to a point so hang in there with me. 🌿I wanted to start by pointing out a couple of things from the last few day’s readings that […]
As I share this coffee chat it may be helpful to know (for context) that we are currently finishing up the book of Acts in our Bible Study.
As I write this, the main fellowship group comprised of 12,926 members has just completed 1 Corinthians. We are one month away from having read the entire Bible in the past year (Sign up for my email list to be notified when the next one starts at the bottom of this post). It has been […]
