    Rivers of Water

    Psalm One has always been one of my favorites, if not my favorite psalm. There is so much promise in it, although the promise is conditional. To make it easy for those not familiar with the psalm, or who don’t remember it too well, I’m quoting it here from the New King James Version: Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; But his delight is in the law of the Lord., and in His law he meditates day and night.

And it may not be continuing to volunteer. He may want you to start your own ministry.…

    Moving Forward, Part One

    The new year is here. We traditionally look back at the previous year to see what we’ve accomplished, and at the things that have happened. Some of this is fine, other looking back is not so good. It’s important to remember that the past is spent and cannot be retrieved nor altered. The old saying don’t cry over spilt milk is appropriate here, as there is no putting it back in the bottle. At the same time, I’ve looked back at where I was a year ago and quit being frustrated with my lack of progress in things I’m trying to accomplish. I realized that I’ve made more progress than…
