Thought for an abundant day

Your Powerful Sword

Video games and action movies often have characters who wield swords that save them from harm and destroy their enemies. These swords have amazing qualities that endow their owner with superhuman powers.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have such a sword?

We do. It’s called the word of God.

With it, we don’t have to be Superman or Wonder Woman to hack our way out of trouble, pull ourselves out of the mud hole of despair, or climb over insurmountable obstacles to reach our true potential. The word of God is our armor (see Ephesians 6:10-17), it is God’s mighty power to enable us to stand firm against the devil’s schemes, the spiritual forces of evil, and whatever we may encounter in life. It is truth, a right relationship with God, peace, a shield, and the sword of the Spirit.

Video games and action movies are fantasies. They don’t exist, nor do their weapons. God exists and we have only to call upon Him to arm ourselves with spiritual powers that enable us to stand firm, fight the good fight, and be blessed.

my journey begins daily

today i will...


I begin each day with short reflections based on Study, Prayer, and a commitment to Action (my Bible SPA).

What amazes me is the ease, breadth and depth of these thoughts that can only come from the Holy Spirit. I conclude each reflection with a mention of God’s altar because it is at God’s altar where blessings are bestowed, gratitude is offered, and wholeness is made. And God’s altar may be found anywhere and everywhere, and especially in my heart.

Attempt The Impossible

Attempt The Impossible

Today I will attempt what is impossible through my own powers but that is made possible by the love of God, and that is to grasp the all-encompassing Good News presented in Ephesians and what is means to be adopted by God, sought after by God, and redeemed by God.

Look With Divine Eyes

Today I will look at my conscience from a new, positive perspective; not the condemning voice of God but a divine gift into the mind of God that directs me to what is good, right, and pleasing to God-and equally to my neighbor-and away from what is wrong, hurtful, and...
