Feeling Abandoned.

by admintdc

I read an interesting news story concerning a woman who fell asleep on an Air Canada aircraft bound for Toronto. She woke up to a cold, dark aircraft devoid of passengers and flight crew. She panicked. She finally figured out how to open the door of the aircraft and caught the eye of an airport […]

Living As A Temporary Resident.

by admintdc

When I was working, I travelled quite a bit to different parts of the world. At one point, I lived in Germany for seven years. The culture is quite different and they are very open about sex. It’s very easy to get pulled into this type of lifestyle if you’re not careful. I was a […]

Our Present Troubles Never Last.

by admintdc

I’m going to start today with today’s scripture. As I was looking through the bible, I found 2 Corinthians 4: 17-18 (NLT), which I found encouraging: “For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t […]

The Way To Overflowing Hope.

by admintdc

I don’t know how I used to live without seeking God in my life every day. God was always my last stop when something was going wrong. I only went to Him when I was really in trouble and had no other recourse. When I went to God in prayer, it was always, “Please God, […]

Does your sinful nature or your godly nature have control of your mind? Good question! Honestly, there are days that I’m not sure who is in control of my mind! But what is your hearts desire? I believe that’s what God is interested in. What is your will? Is it to please God or to […]

When I was getting my mail the other day, I saw a man trying to get into our building. I watched as he tried different keys but none worked. Try as he might, he had to finally turn away in frustration. This little drama made me reflect on man’s attempts to find God or to […]

Faith Comes By Hearing The Word

by admintdc

The word faith is a difficult word to understand. Having faith in someone or something means that you can trust that person or thing to do what you expect it to do. Faith is an action word. Can I have complete faith in someone or something here on earth? Personally, I don’t think so because […]

Trust What God Says

by admintdc

When my children were growing up, they were very curious as most children are. The older they got the more complicated the questions. Sometimes I was hard pressed to answer while trying to figure out how they even knew about what they were asking. In many cases, I had no answer to their questions. And, […]

Not Guilty

by admintdc

When I was a young boy, I stole a chocolate bar from a pharmacy down the street from my house. This was at the bidding of my friend, Bobby. Yet, when I got home with my stolen treasure, I couldn’t eat it. I just sat looking at it as the realization of what I’d done […]
