No Probation, Condemnation, or Grudges!

God is not like unforgiving, bitter, angry people. He never says no to a humble cry for mercy. Psalm 30:5 is such a powerful verse in the Bible… For His [God’s] anger lasts only a short time. But His favor is for life. Crying may last for a night, but joy comes with the new […]

Be Like The Spring Time!

Journal Thought: Be like the spring time: bud, blossom, & be colorful! This is a growing season. Rise with a morning song, reach for the sunlight, and thrive! For I [God] will pour out water to quench your thirst and to irrigate your parched fields. And I [God] will pour out my Spirit on your descendants, and my […]

Do You Have A Prayer Closet?

I have a great worship video to show you. But before that, let me tell you why it’s so special. It’s 3:40am right now. For the second night in a row, I’ve been awake since about 1:30am. So tonight (this morning), I decided to get out of bed and go into my prayer closet. This has […]

To Be Loved…

Happy Wednesday! Last night I was watching an LMN movie with my wife, just before we went to bed (ok, so I admit this). During a commercial, Emily looked over at me with the prettiest smile of her life and said, “You’re a good husband Charlie. I love you.” Then before I could say anything […]

Go Ahead, Ask For Wisdom!

Happy Thursday! I’m trying to get back on a daily or semi-daily blog writing schedule. I’m currently experiencing a very bad case of responsibility overload. Hoping it will clear up soon! But then again, I am engineered by my Creator to function like this, so keep it coming… and make me stronger and wiser for […]

Do you feel close with God… and with all the special people in your circle? Certainly, life has it’s challenges no matter where you live or how perfectly […]

Challenged Beyond Your Own Ability to Win?

Happy Weekend! What a roller coaster these past few years have been for me. Sometimes, people must see me speak on Sunday mornings and think, “Wow, with faith like that, he must be invincible!” The truth is that I have to fight just as hard as anyone else to live the principles I preach. I […]

Amid the Sound of The Great Celebration!

Happy Monday! Worship at Destiny Family Center yesterday morning hit another level! I felt like I was standing in the middle of a national worship conference-goose pimples and teary eyes for the entire session! This morning, I am thanking God in prayer for our worship team. I thank God for their flaming hearts and high […]

The Effort Only Makes Sense From the Top!

Happy Saturday! It seems like it was just yesterday when I wrote my last inspirational blog: Enough!! (Change Begins With a New Attitude). Was it really eight days ago? I’ve been suffering from the worse cold of my life, thankful to be alive this morning. During that time, I finished the first publishers edit on […]
