Stuck in the Middle

I want to talk to you today about being stuck in the middle. When I think of being stuck in the middle, I think of being average. Nobody wants to be average in life and stuck in the middle. For example, if you are on a Southwest Airlines flight, or any flight, you don’t want […]

Be Content, Not Complacent

Contentment is a spiritual state. Apostle Paul said in Philippians 4: “I’ve learned to be content.” Being content in whom, what, and where we are is critical. Being content on the inside is a spiritual state, and not an excuse to be complacent or lazy. We should always be hungering for more of what God […]

Don’t Fear Big; Fear Small

I think far too many times, we don’t fear the big things, but we fear the small things. In other words, we need to go big with our lives. Too many people fear greatness when, in reality, we should fear mediocrity. We should fear playing it small in life. We shouldn’t fear big, but fear […]

Almost Isn’t Good Enough

I want to talk to you today about when “Almost Isn’t Good Enough.”  When I use the word “almost,” what does that word do for you?  The word itself means “very nearly.”  Ex: In this last Super Bowl, the Atlanta Falcons almost won.

An Unfair Advantage

The other day, Gloria and I were sitting down and having lunch with our youngest son.  As we were talking about a particular subject, I felt impressed by the Holy Spirit to say to him, “You have an unfair advantage in life.”  I’m going to share my thoughts concerning that, but I’m wondering, what do […]

It’s Your Move

Every day is a gift from God and we can’t take anything for granted. Every moment of life counts. As the Apostle Paul said, “To live is Christ, to die is gain.” Either way, we win. Every day we need to live life. Don’t let a day pass without Carpe Diem – seizing the day. […]

GO HIGHER!

In leadership circles, there is what is known as the hierarchy effect. It is basically this: the higher up you go in an organization, the happier you will be. When organizational life is studied, those at the top levels are usually the happiest. You may think that makes sense but here’s the thought I want […]

“How Can I?” vs “How Come?”

There are different perspectives we can have in life. One example is a “How can I?” mentality – How can I get this done? How can I overcome this? How can I or we get through this? In contrast, there are those who go through life stuck on “How come?” – How come this happened […]

Three Beliefs That Matter

I want to talk to you today about three beliefs that matter. These three things are very important in our lives, and you’re probably not going to hear anyone talking about them at work, at school, or on TV. Here they are. The first big belief: “What I presently have is better than what I […]

Life Doesn’t Bend

Life is a tough schoolmaster. It tends to repeat the same lessons over and over again until we get it right. The sooner we learn the life lesson, the quicker we can move on. I believe that the challenges we face repeat themselves because life is a test. It’s a lesson that has to be […]
