The Wounded and the Hurt

I’ve read a few Facebook posts about people you meet who smile slightly with their mouths, but the smile never reaches their eyes.  This has been deemed something akin to an “unsmile,” if there could be such a word.  People have judged others as insincere smilers.

It made me think back to my smile.  I have […]

One Purpose We All Have

Leading others to Christ……  I remember the first time I tried talking to someone about Jesus.  I was a very young kid and some people at church decided to evangelize the community.  The group I was with went to the farm right next to ours and we got run away with shouts of “don’t come […]

What’s Faith Got to Do with It?

Constitution of Iron has a wonderful chapter in it entitled “What’s Faith Got to Do with It?”  I was reminded recently about this chapter and how valuable it is concerning life issues that confront us every day.

While at a recent book signing, a rather articulate lady dropped by and gave me her testimony.  In short, […]

What if I don’t have a dream to fulfill?

God gives all of us multiple dreams.  Having trouble finding out what your dream is?  Don’t really believe that God has placed a dream within your heart?

Let’s look at Proverbs 25:2 “It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, but the glory of kings is to search out a matter.”  The Message Bible […]

Why Read “Constitution of Iron?”

I am a reader.  I’ve read so many books within the last year or so about how to fulfill your God-given dreams.  In fact, I just found a notice where a well-known minister wrote one on the same subject and he was going to be a guest on a popular television show to talk about his book.  […]

Has He said and shall He not do it?

Numbers 23:19 goes on to read, “….has He spoken and shall He not make it good?”

God wants you to remember what He spoke into your life and He wants to resurrect those dreams He gave you.  Just because the resistance is great and comes from many quarters, we begin to doubt that our dreams had […]

God will send a lifeboat……

In Constitution of Iron I relate a strategy that the devil uses to make us forfeit our God-given dreams and that weapon against us is withdrawal.  “We give up and ask, what’s the use?  ….we move from the front of the church to the middle of the church.  Then we move to the back of […]

Can’t relate to Joseph????

You might be thinking, “Why should I read Constitution of Iron about the life of Joseph.  You’re thinking that the loved and probably rich boy has nothing to offer you in your situation.

Joseph’s life will relate to you if:

You come from a loving mother and father
You come from a mixed family of some of hers, […]

Faith Under Pressure

“Consider it a sheer gift, friends, when tests and challenges come at you from all sides. You know that under pressure, your faith-life is forced into the open and shows its true colors. So don’t try to get out of anything prematurely. Let it do its work so you become mature and well-developed, not deficient […]
