Beauty of God’s Boundless Power

God’s Boundless Power God’s power is boundless. We are but a little tiny speck in this world that we live in yet we often forget the immense power God possesses.  He only imposes limits on his own powers when it comes to us because we were given the gift of free will when we were created.  He waits on us to ask Him for His will to be done. Make no mistake though.  He will work through people.  There are those who resist, those who sin in rebellion to His will but understand this, there will be someone through whom he can...

You Be The Judge

You Be The Judge Next to deceit, judging others is possibly the worst of all human flaws.  Everyone is a judge, yes, including me.  What if we step outside of ourselves for a moment and analyze what makes us do so?  Some people judge others as a reflection of their own shortcomings to further create a smokescreen for the same thing they are judging others about.  There is a saying when you point a finger at someone, three fingers point back at you. If we truly look deep within ourselves, we don’t only see our strong traits but our...

WATCH YOUR TONGUE

Perspectively, the tongue is the smallest part of the body that is engaged in conversation.  It has the power to deliver words intended to create a reaction from the person those words are directed to.  It starts with a thought.  The thought transforms into words.  The words are then conveyed through the tongue.  It is like a rudder that stirs the ship.  It gives comfort to the broken-hearted, it encourages, or it… kills. If a father or a mother spanks a child through discipline, the child will learn but heal.  If they are beaten down by hurtful and discouraging words, their spirits never recover and they go through life broken and insecure.  Consequently, they pass this on to their own children and the vicious cycle continues.  Dr. Phil likes to say, “it takes a thousand “atta-boys” to make up for one insult.”  At one juncture in my life, I had been on the receiving side of this.  All through life I told myself I would never do that to my own kids.  And I didn’t.  I encouraged them and became their biggest cheerleader.  I want to be my children’s confidante.  So far so good. There comes a point in one’s life when one realizes that when the effects of a childhood such as this is stunting their personal growth, one has to rise above the way you were raised,...

PRIDE: Does it Make You a Better Person, or is it Destructive?

Pride has both positive and negative connotations.  Imagine a line, on the left the positive, and on the right end is negative, with the middle the balance.  But sometimes, the magnetic field pulls stronger on one side because of our free will.  I don’t mean control, but it could be part of our makeup that we have gotten used to, what we’ve learned throughout life, and how people respond to us. On the positive side, growing up, our doting parents thought the world of us, give us praise of every achievement no matter how small, and we get used...

Faith, God, and Religion — FRIENDS

People come and go throughout our lives and some stick around. But what defines a true friend? How easily would you call someone your Best Friend? Is it because you have a lot in common? You may have common goals, common interest, a common sense of humor? I believe the commonality lies in a common heart. Remember the movie “Beaches” and “Brian’s Song”? Dramatic and tragic as they movie were,  embodies the whole concept of a true friendship. However, those were movies that invoke these following questions. It is easy to watch one and empathize but if you analyze...

Kids: What’s Wrong With Them … and Parents?

Every generation asks, “What is wrong with kids these days?” As a young girl I’ve often heard older people say.  Now that I’ve earned that right, I understand what they meant.  I am living it. The most basic human unit is the family.  The family is where one develops character, personality, intellect, and social skills.  Why are teachers blamed by parents when their kids are at sub-par learning level and not passing a grade?  I grew up in a different space and time. Education was as important as breathing.  Getting less than an A in my family is unacceptable.  My...
