Are You Trying To Race Or Pace Your Way To Success?

Life-lessons happen when you least expect it. Even when you’re on holiday! I was blessed to spend a whole week hiking in Grindelwald, Switzerland. My chalet over-looked a stunning valley that led your eye directly up to the north face of the Eiger. Bernard, our mountain hiking guru, knew a lot about this mountain. He is a very experienced hiker in the Alps (Swiss born and bred!). He told us of how climbers had perished here in their quest to conquer the north face. Many had been caught out by the sudden change in weather, some had frozen to death

Codependency Symptoms

The term codependency has been around for almost four decades. Although it originally applied to spouses of alcoholics, first called co-alcoholics, research revealed that the characteristics of codependents were much more prevalent in the general population than had been imagined. In fact, they found that if you were raised in a dysfunctional family or had an ill parent, it’s likely that you’re codependent. Don’t feel bad if that includes you. Most families in America are dysfunctional, so that covers just about everyone, you’re in the majority! They also found that codependent symptoms got worse if untreated, but the good news

Listening is Key to Life

So many issues in life.  So many important things to deal with.  All of those issues that we have to deal with day in and day out, would be helped if we listened better.  Remember the old question, “Why did God give us two ears and only one mouth?” it’s a key point to making things better in our life.  Of course the answer is that we should listen twice as much as we speak.  This is one point that I try and work on all the time in my life.  There are still many times that I come up

Be Careful What You Say About Others

Perhaps one of the most despicable sins that can be committed is the defamation of another person’s character. Scripture states that “…it is akin to murder and worthy there of the judgment as such.”      This particular sin is one of the few that calls down upon the sinner a corporal punishment (punishment while alive) that can be quite devastating. These punishments take on many forms depending upon the severity of the defamation and the effect it has on the victim.      There are idle gossipers that love to bring others down because it makes up for their inadequacies, they

Hearing & obeying God’s is word essential

Robert and his wife Susan encouraged Judy to say the “Sinners Prayer (Born Again Prayer (John 3:1-8)”. Judy said the prayer. Robert and Sue then praised God and told Judy that she was now Saved and was guaranteed (assured) to enter Heaven (at death or rapture). If we confess and believe on Jesus Christ is that all we need to enter Heaven (John 3:16; Romans 10:9-10, 13)? This article uses the Bible to examine the “Heavenly Assurance” belief.

Do you ever think about how many questions you are asked on a daily basis? How many of those aren’t really important questions? Every once in a while a question comes your way that has the potential and power to change your life: for example, “Will you marry me?” or “Do you want to start a church?” Questions are much more powerful than statements.
