The entire world is looking for success.
Like many of you, I have a GPS hanging from the front windshield of my car to help me navigate from one point to the next. A funny thing happened to it recently. I had, as the voice setting, a woman with a British accent. I don't understand why, but a couple of weeks ago the voice quit working properly. All of a sudden, it sounded like a man speaking in slow motion. It was like an old audio tape that was played too slowly. It was very odd.
During Lent, we are reminded constantly of values in ourselves, in the relationships surrounding ourselves and in our families. We, as believers, are taught to "love one another as He loves us."
Spring is in the air, and it is time for a good walk.
The parable of the 10 virgins, Matthew 25:1-13, stresses that all believers always must look to their own spiritual conditions. The believer must see his or her lifestyle in the light of Christ's coming at an unknown and unexpected time.
According to nature, I believe spring is here.
In last week's article, I wrote about how I started taking piano lessons when I was younger.
How could we possibly not want to go to heaven?
Although Living Waters Community Church in Hinesville has not yet celebrated its one-year anniversary, members of the congregation are experiencing many life-changing events.
The lyrics from one of my favorite Mississippi Mass Choir songs, entitled "It Remains to Be Seen," say, "The safest place in the whole wide world is in the will of God. Trials come great and small just stay in the will of God. Come what may from day to day keep the faith and be still. It remains to be seen what God can do for the one who submits to His will."
Since the start of Lent, the 40-plus-day journey many Christians take leading up to Easter, many ministers, priests, spiritual leaders and faith-based counselors have fielded questions from people who are seeking help with faith issues in their lives.
Each year, clergy members come from near and far for a time of fellowship and spiritual renewal. On Feb. 6-9, pastors and ministers from various cities and towns in Georgia met in Macon for the annual ministers conference of the General Missionary Baptist Convention of Georgia.
Lent started recently and we're well on our way to the celebration of Easter, but there still are many Christians who struggle with faith issues in their lives. We live in an age of fast-track mentality, media frenzies and "hurried child syndrome." What do we find so attractive about this type of lifestyle, quick results and instant gratification? Is this truly the way we are meant to live, driven by habit and trendiness?
Today's Scripture is "Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again." Luke 6:38 (KJV)
The other day, I had my yearly physical checkup at with my family doctor. The good news is that all signs point to a healthy future, but the bad news is that I will have to go through it again next year.
I enjoy playing golf. I suppose it is my most-enjoyable hobby at this time in my life.
