2 Cor 7.1There are some who are health-conscious and subscribe to the idea of cleansing the body of all of the chemicals that accumulate in what we eat and drink. This cleansing action is supposed to make the body healthier and more vibrant! What is unfortunate, however, is that we often spend more time being concerned about our physical bodies and neglect our spiritual bodies. This is ironic since our physical bodies started to deteriorate the day we were born. Our spiritual bodies will live forever. Watch what you eat! Get plenty of exercise. But don’t neglect the spiritual side of your life. That will last you for eternity.

Behold, I Am With You Always! -JESUS


When Paul and Silas were dragged, beaten and jailed into the inner prison and fastened their feet in the stocks, they didn’t allow their condition to affect their hearts’ position.  Instead the praised God!

“About midnight Paul and Silas were PRAYING and SINGING hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them and SUDDENLY there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken.  And IMMEDIATELY all the doors were opened, and everyone’s bonds were UNFASTENED.”  Acts 16:25-26 ESV

Someone once said, “Yesterday is a cancelled check, tomorrow is a promissory note, today is cash, spend it wisely.” One of life’s greatest tragedies is missed opportunities.. who knows how many great books go unwritten, how many inventions are unseen, how many great songs go unsung because thier authors never got around to it; didn’t believe they had anything​to offer, or had no one to encourage them to go forward. Worse today! Make every moment count to the glory of Christ who indwells, empowers and sustains you.

True humility is not berating yourself. Rather it is realizing that everything you have; everything you are is the act of an Almighty Creator God who loves you enough to make you be all you can be. When we realize this, arrogance and a judgmental attitude can not be part of us. Humble people are respected more than the proud. 

True friends will always stand with you through the good and the bad. They will be honest with you when your choices are harmful or stupid, but they will stand with you as much as possible when the consequences are hard. They celebrate with your victories and mourn with you during defeat. True friends emulate Christ and will always steer you towards God.
