Actions should reaffirm beliefs

I am excited about my faith in God. I learned a long time ago that God was real and He can help in times of trouble. I believe it's impossible for me to exist without my faith in a God who is omniscient, omnipoten and omnipresent.

Adhere to a few 'absolutes'

I am excited about freedom. This weekend we join Americans around the world in celebrating our country's 233rd birthday. The founding fathers came to America many years ago in search of freedom and opportunity. Then, one day, they gathered and signed the Declaration of Independence. What a day that must have been!

More than one way to look at something

I am excited about an upcoming revival. Some time ago, my wife and I were in a local department store when she insisted on buying a tree that looked dead. Even though the tree was being sold at a tremendous discount, I was irritated that she wanted to buy the tree. We were looking at the same tree but we saw something totally different.

Sticks and stones

The Bible says, in Proverbs 18:21, "the power of life and death is in the tongue." I can remember being told, as a little boy in the third grade, that I wouldn't be able to accomplish much. I was an African-American child living in the Deep South. I had six siblings and a public education that ranked amongst the worst in the country. We drove around in an old station wagon. My family was poor financially, but rich spiritually and, as I grew older, I found out that I was not alone.

Use Elijah and Elisha’s story to become a world-changer

"When the LORD was about to take Elijah up to heaven in a whirlwind, Elijah and Elisha were on their way from Gilgal. Elijah said to Elisha, 'Stay here; the Lord has sent me to Bethel.'
