Fear is a Destiny-Killer Part 2
on November 21st, 2021
King Saul was anointed and appointed by God. He could’ve had a legacy of being a successful king over Israel. Saul’s legacy was that he gave up what God gave him. He could’ve ruled in King David’s place, but he gave it up. Giving up is a result of fear and insecurity, and it was that fear and insecurity that caused him to hide when he should’ve been stepping up. Samuel anointed Saul to be king in ...

I love Old Testament stories. They are very interesting because they are so relatable for our modern times. For example, King Saul was a man called of God, anointed, and the first king over God’s people, the Israelites. But fear caused him to lose His God ordained legacy. 1 Sam. 13:5-12 (NIV): “The Philistines assembled to fight Israel with three thousand chariots, six thousand charioteers, and so...

We used to live in the flight path of the airport, and we could hear planes coming and going. They would stop landing and taking off at midnight and start back at four in the morning. Sometimes, as I listened to the planes flying overhead, I would think about my tenure at the Boeing company. I made interior parts for the 747 and 777 Boeing planes which consisted of three million parts. Boeing equi...
Finishing the Course
on September 19th, 2021
As many of you may know, my beloved mother transitioned to Heaven in June of this year. My mother and I were very close, and I felt an emptiness that I thought only she could fill. Of course, I knew that it was my grief thinking, and that the Lord was close and ready to fill that empty void in my soul. I was reminded of a song I heard years ago titled “Bread of Heaven”. “Come and fill this longing...
