How do you kickstart your day?

Yes, it is coffee in a big mug for me, too!

I know that not everyone likes coffee! If you are one of those people, we will pray for you! Most everyone has some morning ritual, or kick-starter activity, to get his/her day moving!

What is it for you? Is it healthy?

Consider this:
1 Thessalonians 5:23-24 Now may the God of peace Himself sanctify you completely; and may your whole spirit, soul and body be preserved blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful, who also will do it.

Spirit – Your relationship with God!
Time in the Word
Meditation & Reflection (Listening)
Thanksgiving and Praise

Soul – Personal Development and relationship with others. (Mind, Will & Emotions)
Reading or learning something worthwhile
Resting – Just being still and quiet for a moment
Time to think and plan
Time with others – family and/or friends – walking with a friend/breakfast with family

Body – Your Earth Suit! Take care of it, but rule over it!
Walk or exercise your body.
Rule over your body – set some parameters of discipline that are healthy.
Rest and Reward! Be nice to your body, it is a good friend!
Your body needs to work and produce, but do not forsake all of the above for work only!

Here is a thought! You can have a different kick-starter on different days! Spirit on M-W-F. Body & Soul on T-T-S! Make your day great with a great start!

Coffee anyone?

Matthew 6:33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.

Where are the answers you need?

It seems we have too much information and not enough real answers!

Hello! Is there anyone out there that really knows how to find answers that are relevant and applicable in today’s world?
How do I know that the information I am finding isn’t just part of another fabricated agenda or masterful marketing plan? Is there a true, dependable and accessible source I can actually trust? I’m looking for answers, for truth, not hype… where do I go?
If you relate to this frustration, there is good news! Answers are absolutely available in digital and analogue form! The challenge is that there are a lot of negative reviews out there that may discourage you from making the best discovery.

The answer book is the Bible.

Inside the pages you will find the wisdom and instruction on how to form a real and lasting relationship with someone who actually does know everything! This alone is an ample reason for embracing the answer book. Some will contend that the Bible has no relevance in the world of technology and progressive thinking. You will find just the opposite to be true; it has life, and it will light the way for you. The challenge is that most people do not read or study it enough to discover the riches in its pages.
In the 60’s we had it all figured out! Peace, Free Love, Long Hair and Bell Bottom Jeans. What more could anyone possibly want or need? The 70’s and 80’s were sure they had all the answers. Now, just ask anyone under 30 years old, and they will “Google it” or ask “Alexa/Siri” for you!
The Truth never changes; it is the plumb-line upon which you must build. Without truth the entire house will be “un-true.” The plumb-line was used in ancient Egypt by master designers, and it is still used today by wise builders. It may be a laser line rather than a string, but it functions by the same truth. Because something is old does not make it un-true or un-useable. There is old math and new math, but the answer does not and cannot change. Otherwise, it is no longer math, but it is a lie!

You must decide whether something is true, or is it false. What standard will you use to make your decisions?

What are you building your life upon? The truth, I hope! So, what is the truth?
John 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
Truth and Light are building blocks you need to build a successful life! The Bible and the Holy Spirit will confirm what God wants to give you and show you. The combination of hearing God’s voice and knowing His Word is the sure foundation of truth and light you can trust.
Conversation with God opens your understanding of His awesome plans for your life. Light or enlightenment of the truth and perfect will of God can be revealed to you. (Jeremiah 29:11-14)
Conversation is interaction between two or more parties! If the Bible says we should “ask,” it emplies that we are capable of hearing or receiving an answer.
Matthew 7:7-8 Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who ask receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.
Ask, Seek, Find! When you look into the truth (God’s Word) and believe it, then ask, seek, and find! Use the plumb-line, and then build your house using a reference that is true.
If you are a Christ follower, you can hear His voice (John 10:27-30). Listen and follow. When you do, you will find yourself beside still waters and in green pastures. (Psalm 31)
Find the answers in God’s Word and in the voice of the Holy Spirit who is inside every believer. The Bible is where you discover the Savior and His Spirit.
The answers you need are available for your discovery! They are not in a philosophy or an agenda, not in a religon or an encounter group, they are found in a relationship!

The answers are found in a person. His name is Jesus!

What I see for America!

What I see for America!

Memorial Day is a time to remember brave countrymen and women who sacrificed their lives, and Why? This country was united under one unshakable idea! One Nation (or people) Under (or submitted to) One God! …. Not any God, and certainly not many gods!

They inscribed this wisdom on our coins and in our courthouses. They proclaimed it boldly in this great nation, and to their credit fought and died to uphold that vital idea. Any nation can be blessed by this revelatory understanding, and other countries have embraced this principal idea along with America. The price is high, and so are the stakes. Our nation united under this idea has withstood enormous evil and great tyranny thrust against it. However, today we facing perhaps the greatest foe to ever come against us. Another idea! The idea that we do not need One God in order to be One Nation. By the way, that statement is true! However, we cannot be the same nation that “One Nation Under God” produces. The idea is that men and women are willing to lay their lives down so that our nation can remain under the blessings of the one true God. If you are born again, or have received Christ as Savior and Lord, you are a believing Christian. As a believer you have access to the Holy Spirit who is able to teach you, reveal to you wisdom and the enlightenment you need to not be overcome by the new attacker of our American Idea. Man does not and cannot discover God. God reveals Himself to men and women who believe in His Idea, the truth… the revelation truth that comes from One God and sets men free, and free indeed. Here is an awesome prayer to pray over yourself, your family, and your country.

Ephesians 1:15-23

Therefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all the saints, do not cease to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers: that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints, and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.

And He put all things under His feet, and gave Him to be head over all things to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him who fills all in all.


I see great things ahead for our Stars and Stripes and other nations who embrace Christ! We need to understand the message of those who fought and died for a God Ideal, not just a Great Idea that our nation was founded upon. We must not fall to the enemy who wants to destroy her with, “Another Idea or other voices.” We must know and hear the One True God!

2 Peter 1:1-11

To those who have received a faith of the same kind as ours, by the righteousness of our God and Savior, Jesus Christ: Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence. For by these He has granted to us His precious and magnificent promises, so that by them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world by lust. Now for this very reason also, applying all diligence, in your faith supply moral excellence, and in your moral excellence, knowledge, and in your knowledge, self-control, and in your self-control, perseverance, and in your perseverance, godliness, and in your godliness, brotherly kindness, and in your brotherly kindness, love. For if these qualities are yours and are increasing, they render you neither useless nor unfruitful in the true knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. For he who lacks these qualities is blind or short-sighted, having forgotten his purification from his former sins. Therefore, brethren, be all the more diligent to make certain about His calling and choosing you; for as long as you practice these things, you will never stumble; for in this way the entrance into the eternal kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ will be abundantly supplied to you.
