The Joy that comes with Marriage

I just had the most exciting week of my life – A clever dance spread over 7 days preceding my wedding to Elizabeth. I cannot describe how endearing it’s been to court her and now have her as my wife. Together, we will do great things!

We married before God on Saturday so we could get started on our mission as husband and wife, a path driven by purpose, love and faith.

I pray our Lord continues to blow wind in our sails as we enter marriage, and commit the rest of our lives to one another. Elizabeth and I spoke our vows standing on a windy beach hand in hand, it was superb.

As I sit here a married man I pray for all those who are a true union before God and those who are in relationships headed in that direction. I believe as long as Elizabeth and I keep focused on God’s word we will have a blessed marriage. But what does the bible say about marriage?

22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. 30 For we are members of His body,[d] of His flesh and of His bones. 31 “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.”[e] 32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.” (Ephesians 5:22-33).

Simply put husbands are to treat their wives with utmost respect and Christ like love. Women are to submit to God through their husbands. Simple choices often lead to simple pleasures. Appreciating the value of each decision we make is at the root of this weeks message which spells out “marriage gets you one step closer to Heaven”!

Making excuses for a “sinful” relationship robs people of the true joy of commitment powered by faith. A marriage before God pulls you that much closer to Him.

We all know right from wrong according to Him. This applies to relationships as well. God will bless us as good Christians but might not go the same way when dealing with our choice of mates.

Asking for his blessing may reveal answers to questions never imagined. I can testify to the fact marriage has been a phenomenal experience. “I” became “we”. Now, I am a better man for it. Elizabeth truly completes me.

Those of you who are married are fortunate to be among the strongest believers today and most likely are living purposeful lives serving God one way or another. Continue to live according to His will and rejoice with Him in Heaven.

Some people are involved in relationships NOT according to God’s way, these individuals often drown in doubt and miss getting a taste of commitment through the art of marriage. They also miss out on the Lord’s blessings and the great joy that come with obedience to God.

I want to thank all of you for your gifts, messages and phone calls. This has been a most exciting week, Praise God for all of you! Let’s ask for His blessing together… 

Let’s pray!

Father God;
We thank you Lord Father for your blessings in our lives
We praise you God for looking over us,
Each and every single day you are there
Keeping us safe, sound, fed, warm, and healthy.

Father we pray you will bless our relationships
And inspire those not yet walking into that light
To join in the wonderful dance that is marriage.

Lord we ask you to continue to look after our families,
Our friends, and all those who seek you,
That you answer our prayers and lead our footsteps
So that we may follow you to Heaven.

Thank you lord father for all that surrounds us!

Praise God,
Amen!

Being Thankful is Essential

Being thankful was easy this week, when a way of life feels better than any holiday, being thankful is an essential part of worshiping God.

I am most thankful for my relationship with God, my love for my wife Elizabeth, and my work where each day where I get to sit behind a desk made of weathered fence wood and a 6 foot surfboard. My office is not hidden among downtown concrete chaos, but a quiet room in a tropical cocoon where magnificent things of God’s earth are found.

From my man-made desk, I often sit and stare through huge glass sliding doors giving out to a patio, then a pond where a peaceful fountain gushes up water 20 feet high. Each day this pond is visited by a colorful variety of wild birds, turtles and otters where they all feed and drink. Often birds bathe then spread their wings to dry, and walk around like angels.

Today and everyday, I work on the edge of paradise and get to serve God all the while. I wake-up and fall asleep to a crisp breeze and a bright shinning sun rising over the east garden, then setting over the palm trees. I am truly blessed and thankful for each minute.

Such a true masterpiece served daily could quickly become routine, if not for daily reminders hidden in prayer. We all need to be thankful for God, our families and the work our Lord has planned for us.

Some are not so fortunate. Either dwelling in poverty or out of work, some of God’s children struggle with everyday life. Worse yet, some are losing their battle with temptation surrendering to evil ways. I believe God sets forth challenges for us to overcome and it is critical that we understand life’s challenges as God’s ways of giving our lives new meaning.

The bible has many verses that warn us about temptation:

Watch and pray that you may not enter into temptation; the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Matthew 26:41)

And lead us not into temptation, But deliver us from evil.” (Matthew 6:13)

And when he came to the place he said to them, “Pray that you may not enter into temptation.” (Luke 22:40)

I praise God and know I truly am one of the lucky ones. Not because I have achieved financial wealth but because I have been blessed with spiritual wealth. This is why I do what I do and say what I say about the life of Jesus and the rewards He promised us.

God is good, and God is great. Walk with Him and you too will have much to be thankful for! It all begins with a prayer during which we are called to surrender our lives to Jesus Christ. A prayer where we ask for forgiveness for our sins. A prayer that opens the doors of heaven.

Let’s pray!

Father God;
We thank you for this day
Thank you for all that surrounds us,
Praise you father for all that came
All that is, and that will be.

Lord we thank you for looking after us
And guiding us each day,
Leading us to be more like you
Spreading gratitude throughout.

We pray you will continue to bless our lives like only you can Lord,
And we ask that you forgive our sins
And spread your divine light
Upon us, our friends and our families.

Thank you lord father for your ever growing splendor.

Praise God,
Amen!

Faith instead of Frustration

I was forced onto an emotional roller coaster this past week and I have to admit even though I love a good ride, this up and down run drained me. It really helped me reaffirm the fact our lives are a result of decisions we make each day.

From a simple smile to a hearty laugh, weeping after a loss or giving someone a hug, how we react to every day occurrences dictates who we are. Getting upset at a reckless driver and taking this frustration home will most likely spread negative energy onto your loved ones. Getting mad at a coworker won’t get you a raise. Cussing after getting lost, stubbing your toe or catching an elbow trying to help a child isn’t right either.

Sinning and making mistakes are a mile apart and not to be confused. Everyone makes mistakes however, it is how we react to these errors of judgment which defines who we are.

Taking a step back paints a clearer picture and helps me focus on decision making as a vehicle to a joyful life. Basically, it is up to us to either get upset or remain calm when God throws a challenge our way or worse, when we are tempted or attacked by evil. It is also up to those around us to refine their own decision making so that we all gain from God’s power. After all, He is at the root of it all!

I would like if you gave this week’s message some thought and try it on for size. Try catching yourself getting frustrated or upset then reach for the light within you and follow in God’s footsteps. Ask yourself “What would Jesus do?”

Imagine a life without challenges. With the understanding that life will pose challenges, it makes sense that we try meet with each test equipped with the best tools available. Experience, endurance and confidence are all great attributes but only Faith will see you through no matter if you fail or succeed. God will always be with you. The bible instructs us to ready ourselves for the fight against evil:

In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.” (Ephesians 6:16-18)

Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience. For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart. Nothing in all creation is hidden from God’s sight. Everything is uncovered and laid bare before the eyes of him to whom we must give account.” (Hebrews 4:11-13)

Likewise you also have those who hold to the teaching of the Nicolaitans. Repent therefore! Otherwise, I will soon come to you and will fight against them with the sword of my mouth. He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it.” (Revelation 2:15-17)

Be happy and ready for the challenges in your life and ask God to lead you through them, don’t just control your temper, ignore it! Shine like the sun, pray to God that He continues to be your guide and always remember He is forever present and willing to help when you need him.

Additionally I invite you to call on us for prayer and answers to troubling questions you may have pertaining to faith, the battle against evil or how to better prepare for challenges ahead.

Let’s pray!

Father God;
We thank you for this day
And for the challenges you have brought in our lives,
We ask for your strength in difficult times
And pray you will be there each time we need you.

Lord we thank you for your all mighty power
Which continues to drive us,
And pray that you always be there
To pull us along and keep us Faithful.

God please forgive our sins
Forgive our hurtful decisions,
And lead us to live perfect lives
Just as you did while among us.

We thank you for providing all we need
To go through each day,
And ask that you continue to bless our lives
Like only you can.

We thank you for your love and all that surrounds us!

Praise God,
Amen!

How do I know I’m going to Heaven?

How do I know I’m going to Heaven? Looking around it’s obvious a lot of people aren’t worried about this, or are they simply waiting for redemption down the home stretch?

God will forgive all sins and open the gates of Heaven to those who choose to serve him, as a child, an adult or even later in life on your death bed. This message is clear throughout the Bible and spoken during Church services worldwide. I have been asked “how is this not a permission to sin then?”

Actually, it’s a guide line. A command.

“How can someone sin their entire life, lie, cheat, steal and even kill but one day this person bow to their knees and asks for forgiveness– And God blesses them and invites them to spend eternity along side Him?” Because our Lord can do very little with someone who spends their entire life serving God and one day turns to the Devil. What truly matters to God is who you are when you cross the finish line.

Our Lord’s promise is a simple one and is based on Faith. Live your life accordingly and you will be rewarded. The gift of eternal life is a result of a change of attitude through faith in Jesus Christ, not a random prize for a life spent serving others without faith.

The bible reads in James 2:26 “For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.” What this verse means is that no matter how many good deeds, how much good you bring into the world, if it is not based on faith in Jesus Christ or performed to honor and glorify God, it is useless and ignored by the eternal judge.

In order to find out if you are in deed headed to heaven, the question you need to ask yourself is not “how do I get to heaven” but “what am-I doing in the name of God to get to heaven”. Open your heart and your mind to God’s ways, to His love and He will keep his promise.

Love God with all that He made you to be and love others around you as He loves you. Enjoy the fruits of your labor, and see to it there is more harvest for your children to savor. Walk in God’s footsteps, let him guide your way, after all He promises that He will always be with you no matter what…

Let’s pray!

Father God;
We thank you for this day
And your blessings in our lives,
We thank you for being a force within us
Every time we need you to be.

Lord we pray you will continue to look after us
And inspire us to live our lives according to your word
Not only finishing well
But constantly striving for your perfection.

God we pray that you will bless us in the days ahead
Providing all that we need,
And bless our friends, our families and those around us
Like only you can.

We thank you for your love and all that surrounds us!

Praise God,
Amen!

Reaching out Spreading the Light

The sun still shines bright today, as it did yesterday, just as it will tomorrow. Even though some areas of our earth will see a cloudy day, sooner or later, the sun will shine.

Those of you going through an overcast day have something to look forward to and need to remember life is not all dark and gray. But it can be if you make it so.

Others seem to constantly get to enjoy bright sunny days where birds dance in a clear blue sky, even on rainy days these people are happy, how is this possible?

Simple.

We have the light within! I am proud to say I belong to the luckiest group of people on earth, having accepted God as my leader and letting Him guide my footsteps. Living according to God’s will has it’s advantages, it’s not all compromises…

A new Jeep then, an old Toyota now, but no more freezing rain, slush filled roads or snow to shovel. From a 3000 square foot loft with 15 foot windows overlooking a noisy cargo railroad to a cozy apartment where a set of patio doors open up to a Tennis court hiding behind a pond’s fountain. Feeling like a rich man before God, overjoyed with His wealth since I found Him.

I am surrounded with people who seem to be afraid to “give-in” to God seeing this as “giving-up”. This is such a gigantic mistake! No one can live a life according to their own beliefs and have God’s blessings– Without a relationship with the Lord, how will you find the light when clouds hover above? Truth is, you will not be able to tap into a force which you do not believe in.

I invite you to contact me this week, one on one if you dare, by email, phone or in writing and talk about your relationship with God. Let’s find out why he is either blessing you and those around you or, not.

Many of you will choose to ignore my calling out, while others will take me up on my offer and engage in a discussion based on Faith. There is more to a relationship with God than reading a bible or going to Church. Spreading the word, sharing life’s experiences and touching others positively are all at the root of walking with the Lord.

Reach out! Keep the sun shining in your life by serving God helping those who need His light most. Remember that you will need strength to first walk into their clouded days before you can pull them into the light but without these challenges, life would have very few relationship based rewards!

If you are one of the lucky ones, spread the wealth! If you are not yet living in the light, find someone who can help and simply ask for a little bit of sunshine…

Let’s pray.

Father God;
We thank you for this day
For looking after us, our families and friends,
We thank you for providing for us
Like only you can.

Lord we ask you to give us a great week
And to put us to work for you
Allowing us to spread your light
To those who live a clouded life.

God we pray that you will continue to bless us
And answer our prayers
Giving us all that we need
Rather than all that we want.

May your will be done
In my life, for my life.

We thank you for your love and all that surrounds us!

Praise God,
Amen!

Welcoming God’s Challenges

Excuse me but are you guys Christians? I ask because you two look so happy!

This had to be one of the sweetest things anyone’s said to me in years! Elizabeth and I had just sampled some soup at the grocery store when the soup lady walked up to us and engaged us a in conversation about the Yankees and us being Christians! How nice…

Fact is she was also a Christian and she looked pretty happy herself! What is it with Christians anyway? Why are most of them so happy all the time? You think there’s something there maybe?

I think we all know the answer to that. Christians all over the world who rejoice with the Lord find happiness in almost any situation they are faced with. Either sitting in a jail cell, or stuck in traffic. In church or even shopping at the grocery store.

My message to you all this week is a simple one: Find Jesus, and you will find happiness.

I never imagined those words would come out of my mouth, at least not until I opened my heart to God back in October 2000. I “get it” now. And I hope you “get it” too or at least that you’re warming-up to the idea.

I had another picturesque week and am immensely thankful God continues to bless my life with all that surrounds me each and every day. I pray God will shine his light bright upon you in the days ahead and bring much happiness in your life like only he can provide!

Maybe you should try the “happy looking Christian” line on someone yourself, if they are walking with God they’ll glow that much brighter and even if they are not, it might drive them to look into God to keep a happy face…

Let’s pray.

Father God;
We thank you for this day and for your blessings in our lives
We ask that you keep us smiling throughout the week ahead
And inspire us to spread happiness to others around us.

Lord father we thank you for guiding us through each day
And forgiving our sins, our weaknesses,
God we ask you to make us stronger and lead us
To walk in your footsteps trying to be more like you.

God we pray that you will continue to provide for us
And look after our families and friends like only you can.

We thank you for your love and all that surrounds us!

Praise God,
Amen!

Looking at your life with Godly eyes

Birds singing, water shooting up a pond fountain and palm tree leaves waving in the wind. A clear autumn sky surrounding the Sun shinning bright high above. Children laughing, a dog barking playfully. A single engine plane flying nearby, the bells of a church sounding off in the background.

What a perfect day!

Bills pilling-up, bad credit and spots of rust on the car. An aching back, getting old and feeling lonely. Depressing television shows, looking for a new job. Every day wishing for more.

Not so perfect huh?

The funny thing is, both scenarios above describe the same person only, two separate ways to look at life. One way will have you feeling sorry for yourself as you drag others down with you. However, looking at life through Godly eyes is sure to fill you with awe and have you shine from morning to night.

Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior. The Sovereign Lord is my strength; he makes my feet like the feet of a deer and enables me to go on the heights.” (Habakkuk 3:17-19)

Bless the Lord, O my soul: and all that is within me, bless his holy name. Bless the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits: Who forgiveth all thine iniquities; who healeth all thy diseases; Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; Who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy soul with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.” (Psalm 103:1-5)

You see, life can either be awesome or, not. It really is all about choice and how we decide to look at all that surrounds us. Please take the time to enjoy all that God has given you and quit sweating the small stuff. Happiness is right there within reach, and you know this.

I spent the entire week working myself silly, and it was a great week. I consider myself lucky, my work is my life. Though some of you may not be able to say the same, remember that we all are given chores which sculpt our lives. Serving God is our mission, and we can either answer the calling or not, it’s really our choice.

You can either walk through life with a frown, or skip through each day smiling from ear to ear. You can be in pain and be a pain, or be an inspiration and dazzle those around you. What’s it gonna be?

The right choice seems obvious yet we continue to ignore the simplicity of God’s message to us. Walking in his footsteps, living according to his word the bible, loving others as He loves us. A simple recipe for happiness which escapes those who don’t listen. Are you one of those? Or are you a ray of sunshine dedicated to keep slicing through darkness inspiring others to join in the light?

Let’s pray.

Father God;
We thank you for this day and for your blessings in our lives
We pray you will continue to look after us,
And provide for us, our friends and families like only you can.

Lord we ask that you make us stronger
And help us look at life through Godly eyes,
So that we may enjoy the gifts you bring upon us
Each and every single day.

We praise you for the magnificence you show in our lives
And thank you for forgiving our weaknesses.

God we pray that you will fulfill our needs
And answer the prayers of those who seek and cry out to you,
Knowing we are truly blessed
To live the way we do having more than we’ll ever need.

We thank you for your love and all that surrounds us!

Praise God,
Amen!

Serving from Praying

God came to my rescue again this past week as I endeavored into more relationship driven ventures only to be let down. My trusting others so easily is at the root of yet another difficult week. You’ll be glad to know I’m not planning on changing my attitude because of a few non believers…

Just as the past week went from challenging to frustrating for me, some of you were faced with even more difficult issues which I can’t even imagine. This is why I continue to pray for all those who surround me asking God to answer the cries of all those who seek him.

Trouble stuck close to home this past week as friends were faced with medical challenges that put their faith to the test. I am happy to report God watched over all those who we prayed for and that better days lay ahead for them. I personally want to invite you to pray for Sue, Holly, Will and Roger so that God sees them through their ordeals and shines his light upon them in these testing times.

What good is praying for someone you don’t even know? It means everything. Praying instantly produces results within you strengthening your own faith, and God willing, it has the power to heal, inspire and drive others to follow in God’s footsteps and live righteous lives.

I ask you this week to close your eyes and pray for others all around you. To ask God to work his magic in other people’s lives remembering he will look after you. Never forget he put you here for a reason, it is your mission to fulfill his will for your life.

I can’t help but smile when thinking how lucky I am, looking around I am forced to admit God is truly blessing me providing more than I need. This greatly helps me put things in perspective and so, I wanted to reach out and help you come to the same conclusion as I have: We are all blessed to enjoy life the way we do and need to touch others positively giving back any way we can!

Don’t let the world cave-in and influence your perspective, instead stand in the middle of the room you’re in right now and spin all the way around taking time to thank God for all he’s allowed you to have. A quick 360 degree glance at your life will help you realize he’s blessed you also!

Others are not so lucky. Those are the ones we need to bring on board with the Lord so that they can taste the fruit harvested when walking with God. Though it is not up to us to decide when these people will be saved, it is our mission as Christians to keep pointing the way until lost sheep return home…

Go to work for Him and never look back. He gave you life and continues to try to give it purpose. Either listen and serve or ignore and curse. You have the power to build or to destroy. Look around you, shall we roll up our sleeves and take a deep breath or grab a sledge hammer and give up?

Let’s pray.

Father God;
We thank you for your love and all that surrounds us
And for all your blessings in our lives,
We ask that you inspire us to be the best we can be
And touch others positively driving them to follow in your footsteps.

Lord we pray you will continue to shine your light bright upon us
And look after our families, our friends and those who cry out to you,
That you lead us to put you first in our lives
And testify about all you’ve done for us.

Father God, we thank you for for forgiveness in our sins
And ask you make us stronger in the days ahead,
So that we may fulfill our mission serving you
And show you we are committed to earning our ticket to heaven
Living according to your word, to your will.

God give us strength to pray for those who need you
And guide us toward the way ever lasting.

Praise God,
Amen!

A purpose driven life, a marathon

One more week begins, blessed are those who look to God to lead their footsteps as each day brings new challenges, new opportunities to touch others positively. Taking life one day at a time is one way to look at things, but contemplating “the big picture” can also bring much inspiration.

One of the difficult aspects of living a purpose driven life is we won’t know we fully fulfilled our life’s mission until we’ve left our bodies and entered heaven. Of course, living our entire lives according to God’s will puts the odds in our favor but how does one know for certain? How does anyone know they lived up to God’s expectations?

The answer to that question is a simple one: Live according to His word. Live a righteous life, loving others as God loves us. Each and every day, give, share, listen, inspire and obey our all mighty father.

We are all entitled to His love, His forgiveness, His kingdom. Though we are all invited to rejoice with Him in eternal life, only a few of us will get the chance to walk through the pearly gates of Heaven. The reason for this is most people never seek God, they never reach out and ask for His unconditional love which is there for the taking.

Some people choose to wait until they’re laying on their death bed when only a few breaths separate them from Hell. A simple prayer not only saves their soul from darkness but lifts them to the Heavens where we all belong.

Please don’t wait to accept God as your savior, as your inspiration. Start living each day as if you only had a few breaths left and serve God each chance you get. Much like Jesus himself, become a servant and touch those around you with righteousness, will love.

With each day that passes, God will continue to bless your life and before you know it, looking back will bring on feelings of fulfillment beyond anything you ever dreamed!

Let’s pray.

Father God;
We thank you for your love and all that surrounds us
And for the inspiration you provide in our lives,
We thank you for each day you allow us to enjoy life
So that we may fulfill our mission on earth.

Lord we pray you will continue to bless us, our families and friends
And keep providing for our daily needs,
So that we have the tools we require to serve you
Living each day as you would, as you did.

We ask you strengthen us in the week ahead
And keep us from evil, from selfishness, from doom,
And drive us to be the best we can be.

God we ask that you forgive our sins
And that you inspire us to live perfect lives,
Following in your footsteps
Living according to your will, to your word.

Praise God,
Amen!
