How America Becomes Great Again…



Posted a year ago…

For most of my lifetime I considered my country a great nation. The greatest really. It’s achievements are unprecedented.

In politics, our Declaration of Independence and Bill of Rights are a cornerstone to modern-day democracy.

In science we have landed men on the moon and returned them safely. In medicine we have developed vaccines for polio, yellow fever and Hepatitis B. Continue reading “How America Becomes Great Again…”

How To Find My Miracle…

Who needs a miracle?

Yesterday that question was posed at my church and 70% of the congregation raised their hand. My wife and I were part of that number. So, who doesn’t require a miracle? I mean if when asked, 70% of approximately 300 answers in the affirmative, that tells me that you, the reader, have a 7 in 10 chance of wanting, if not needing a miracle.

Would Persecution Help The American Church?

Published a year ago, thought I would re-post as I have other projects I’m working…

Imagine that the President of the United States proclaimed he will end Christianity in America. That he has the full support of Congress and The Supreme Court.

That laws were quickly passed against sharing the gospel. That possessing a Bible is a crime. Continue reading “Would Persecution Help The American Church?”

Mud in My Eyes…


What am I doing here? On the best day of my life I’m standing in the Temple being interrogated by these Jewish leaders. What do they have against my miracle? They ask the same questions over and over!

Give credit to God. We know this man is an impostor.” (John‬ ‭9:24‬) Continue reading “Mud in My Eyes…”

Two Small Fish…

We are back in Galilee after an eventful tour of Jerusalem and Judaea.  We have just crossed the Tiberias with thousands of people following.

Jesus has done many miracles along the way. The sick are healed, the blind see and the lame walk. It’s an everyday occurrence. Lepers leave their seclusion to seek out His healing power. He refuses no one. Continue reading “Two Small Fish…”

A “Come To Jesus” Moment…

It’s been a whirlwind since the last time we were here. Following Jesus is quite eventful. Since the wedding feast, we have been to Passover in Jerusalem, through Samaria, and in Jesus’ home town of Capernaum. We baptized many near Salim, and now we are back to Cana. Continue reading “A “Come To Jesus” Moment…”

The Best Is Yet To Come…

We have been with Jesus for three days now. It has been the best three days of my life. Although a short time, I feel like He loves me more than anyone in the world. His presence brings me so much joy and peace. 

So much that I have made the decision to leave everything behind and follow Him.  I plan to go wherever He takes me. The love I feel in His presence is as if He Himself is love. Continue reading “The Best Is Yet To Come…”

United States?

 A fight is usually the result of opposing forces trying to enforce their respective will. In the United States, we seem to be having a lot of that lately.

We are anything but united.

Our government has become a forum of disagreement rather than progress, where hate is replacing debate, vitriol replacing decorum, and idiology replacing patriotism. Continue reading “United States?”

My Way?

In 1969, Frank Sinatra recorded the big hit My Way.  It climbed the charts in America and sat at number one in the U.K. for 75 weeks.  It was recorded by other big artists including Elvis Presley. It is a song of reflection, of how a life was lived.

When I look back at most of my life, my successes and failures, this song could be my anthem. A memorial to who I was. No matter what I see, I can testify, it was my way. Continue reading “My Way?”
