A Form Of Godliness

June 23, 2014

“I’m more humble than all of y’all!” That was the response from a church pastor during a discussion where he was told that perhaps the reason he could not understand what was being said was because he was not being humble enough to receive the message.  Yup, his response

The 10 Seconds That Changed Me Forever

June 18, 2014

I’ve often heard that he who goes the extra mile gets the spoils and that most people never achieve success because they quit JUST BEFORE their moment of opportunity without ever knowing it.  I experienced this first hand one morning.

Don’t Punish Me For What Your Ex Did

June 16, 2014

They say when you sleep with your lover, you are sleeping with everyone they slept with.  That’s a scary thought.  But what is also scary is that when you date someone you are often in a relationship with them and with the persons they’ve dated before.

We come into new relationships often bruised by past ones.  The new person we are dating is often punished for sins that our previous partners committed.  It’s not fair but it often happens.

Situations Need Your Permission To Become Problems

June 15, 2014

Johnny Weeks had a gun pressed to his head. He was probably going to be dead in a few seconds. His crime was accidentally denting a drug dealer’s prized SUV with a runaway shopping cart.

Have I Ever Left a Hole in Your Fence?

June 4, 2014

My friend Brian shared this wonderful story with me the other day.  It was too good not to share.

“There once was a little boy who had a bad temper.  His Father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence.  Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down.  He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.  Finally the day came when the boy didn’t lose his temper at all.

Change Is Good

May 26, 2014

 It only takes one solitary instant for your whole life to change, and that’s a good thing.  When you’ve gone on twenty job interviews, you only need one person to call you back.  If you’re down on your luck just remember that it only takes a single “yes” to change your whole life.  One phone call, one college application letter, one person to notice you and ask you out, it can all change “like that!” famous_quote_change_is_good
