THE LORD'S PRAYER - WITH A DIFFERENCE!

Dallas Willard was once asked how he prayed. He answered that he prayed the Our Father every morning before his feet hit the ground. I can just imagine Satan’s reaction whenever Dallas Willard put his feet on the ground in the morning. It must have been something like this “Oh hell! He is getting up – take cover!” Prayer and faith go together. You cannot have the one without the other. In Biblical terms prayer is a personal communication or request addressed to God and faith is a strong or…

DON'T JUDGE A BOOK BY ITS COVER (A SECOND REMINDER!)

Yesterday I was walking down the street and I passed a couple who had various body piercings and tattoos.

My reaction reminded me of a few years ago when God taught me a major lesson about how easily we judge things and people by their outside appearances. I had just climbed off a plane in Birmingham…

Funny, it seems that by keeping its dreams; it learned to breathe fresh air. Long live the rose that grew from concrete when no one else even cared. You see you wouldn’t ask why the rose that grew from the concrete had damaged petals. On the contrary, we would all celebrate its tenacity. We would all love its will to reach the sun. Well, we are the rose –…

You Are the One - Start Marriage Right
