All you can be

The United States Army use to have a slogan that said, “Be all you can be,” What a great slogan. You join the arm forces and you can be all you can be. Most of us remember as a young child in grade school being asked the question, “What would you like to be when you grow up?” Some of the responses from young children would include such things as: a doctor, a policeman, a fireman, or even a pilot. When you’re young you have a clean slate and your mind has not been polluted too much. I don’t know that my response in my first-grade class room was to become a Christian or even a Pastor at that matter. Being a Christian is the ultimate gift that has been given to us.

A Burden Carried

Recently, I was driving past a Baptist Church here in town and on the sign in front of the church read: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in time of need.” I thought to myself, “what a perfect verse for me right now.” Over the years this has become one of my favorite verses in the bible especially when you’re going through a difficult time.

In the 1900’s there was a storm that took even more casualties known as the Galveston Hurricane. What’s shocking about this one is they say that when the storm came inland there were 8,000 people who ignored the warning and they were swept out to sea. When I mention storms a person can easily use it as a metapho

A Better Place

The promise that God will make all things new one day is something that all Christians look forward to. Maybe it’s because deep down inside we all know that earth is not our home. We’re not of this world. The bible tells us that God has placed eternity in our hearts. The older you get the more you long for the eternal paradise. Jesus words echo in our hearts, “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. And where I go you
