Courage in the Face of Adversity
March 25, 2018 05:00 AM PDT
Rarely do we look forward to situations of confrontation. Whether fear or trepidation show up in those instances it doesn't matter. The nature of confrontation is that we may not want to go there. In the end when we have no choice, where is the courage?
Jesus had to call upon some type of courage in order to go into Jerusalem. Even though his disciples tried to talk him out of it, he boldly went forward knowing that he was to meet the ultimate challenge. Was it courage or was it faith? Call it what you will and just know that we possess that same power within.

We do little when we give of our possessions. It is when we give of ourselves that we truly give.
While we may try to amass all of the possessions we can, in the end it means nothing. Service to others is where fulfillment lies.

Psalm 19Who Is That Behind You?
February 25, 2018 05:00 AM PST
We are driven by others in the world and not always aware of the implications. We react to certain people in different circumstances and yet we fail to realize how much we sacrifice our higher calling. If we have a higher spiritual calling, that context drives our living and we then know that we are to serve others and life itself.

Mark 1:9-15The Solution is Within
February 11, 2018 05:00 AM PST
It is all an inside job. When you read 2 Corinthians 9:7-18 you will see how we are vessels for the light and brightness of the Creator. We might get it twisted thinking that we are the source but in reality, we are merely individual expressions of God.
While we face challenges on a daily basis, we look to the world for solutions when ultimately, the solution is within.
2 Corinthians 9:7-18Living Your Commission
February 04, 2018 06:21 AM PST
You are not your problems. You are not defined by problems. We may have that confused a bit, but in reality, we can choose to have our problems carry out our callings.
1 Corinthians 9:16-23We Have All Been Disturbed

Mark 1:21-28Hashtags and Inclusion
January 21, 2018 06:25 AM PST
We are more alike than we realize. We judge others without respect to the fact that God is the ultimate judge and we need to be aware of the fact that she is paying attention.
Regardless of your faith tradition, we speak to the higher self in each of us. Take what serves you from these messages for inspiration and encouragement. We can all use a bit of that.
