I’m Not ASHAMED!
I want to say something about the spirituality debate. You don’t believe in God? That’s ok, but why is it so important for many of you to mock those of us that do? If we’re wrong, what have we lost when we die? Nothing! How does our faith in Jesus Christ bring you any harm? You think it makes me stupid? Gullible? Ignorant? That’s ok too.

Four of us were together, the band leader and myself along with our girls.… Continue reading Falling into the tree!
Too often I find myself thinking of what can go wrong with my health, I have to then remember God has my back! Does anyone else face this issue? We should keep each other in prayer.
As the Pastor of a small Texas Church, I want say that too often we are vulnerable to these tragedies. We work with a lot of broken people, including abuses of spouses, drugs, emotionally unstableness. The difference in our small Churches and larger Churches is that we can’t afford to hire security and very often… Continue reading Texas Church shootings
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. Philippians 4:6 Isaiah 41:13 tells us, “For I am the Lord your God who takes hold of your right hand and says to you, ‘Do not fear; I will help you.’ What GREAT hope..as… Continue reading Anxiety
