There is a difference between being “cracked” and broken to pieces. A cracked vase can still hold a candle and shine light. A vase that is broken to pieces needs to either be fixed or thrown away. The more broken pieces the less useful the vase becomes. We are empty vases that are filled with the […]
1 Corinthians 13 is one of the most quoted love poems ever. Most importantly it reminds us that love never fails. I know. I know.

While some of us sing, “What a friend we have in Jesus” others may be thinking, “Well I don’t really know Jesus like that, but my friend does.” Is Jesus your friend? Or is He a friend of a friend? I briefly met Michael Jordan back in the day. I knew a lot about him […]
For he gives his sunlight to both the evil and the good, and send rain on the jut and the unjust alike. – Matthew 5:45 NLT Let’s get one thing straight. You are going to have problems and likely more than one in a lifetime. God never promised anyone a life without problems. In fact, […]
“Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God. If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.” – Galatians 1:10 Obviously!

Philippians 4:13 is a commonly quoted verse from the Bible. It is not usually misquoted, but often taken out of context. We’ve seen this verse on t-shirts, coffee cups, license plates, etc. “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength” (NLT). In this verse, Paul gives us the courage we need to take on […]
The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. – Psalm 34:18 People try their best to avoid pain in life because pain is not pleasant. It is also not avoidable. If you have lived for any amount of time beyond the first few years of your life, you […]
Our reality is shaped by our perspective. Our perspective is formed by who we are and what we have experienced. One of the most powerful questions used in personal coaching is simply this: “Is that true?” Most of what we believe is not “true” but merely a version of reality that we’ve accepted based on […]
