Zach…..Fed Up with his addictions

I’ve come to believe that there are no coincidences in life.  People are brought into our lives for a specific reason.  It’s all preordained in my honest opinion.  When I was given the idea of The Micah Principle I was told that it means “Though I fall I will rise again”, meaning simply that we all fall down in life but that we MUST get back up. I was told that the purpose of it was to gather stories from people who have done just that and to publish them here.  The end result of it would be to inspire others and give them hope….to help them understand that if someone else overcame an obstacle or tragedy in their life that they can, too.

Zach’s story is the first one to be shared after my story.   I met Zach after seeing a video of him on the Facebook page for a local church Continue reading

I can see clearly now

ICanSeeClearlyNow

Back in the early 1970’s there was a song written and recorded by Johnny Nash called “I Can See Clearly Now”.  It’s a catchy little song with happy lyrics.  I’d sing along with it every time it came on the radio.  Even though I knew every word by heart I never really listened to the song.  I just sang the words on auto-pilot.   Continue reading

Creating your own miracle

Creating your own miracle

I remember reading a story years ago about someone who had played Santa and gave gifts out to some underprivileged yet very deserving children.  I can’t remember all the details of the story but there were not enough presents in the big bag for all the children that were there anxiously awaiting a gift.  The person who was playing Santa knew there were a very limited number of gifts in the bag and that some of the children would receive nothing.  After the last gift was taken out of the bag there were still children waiting.  “Santa” knew when he reached in the bag again it would be empty.   Continue reading

Faith cannot be repossessed

Faithcannotberepossessed

Faith is defined in the dictionary as a strong belief or trust in someone or something.  It also means having a firm belief in something for which there is no proof. Faith is not something you can see.  You can’t touch it or hear it.  You can’t hold it in your hand and you can’t capture it and save it in a jar.  Faith is not tangible.  Faith is instead something that is felt inside you.

The darkness before dawn

Darknessbeforedawn

There’s an old saying that goes like this; “It’s always darkest before the dawn”.   That saying can mean different things to different people. You may take it literally as in it’s really darkest just before dawn breaks.  While that may or may not be true what most people take it to mean is that it always gets worse before it gets better. You will see the darkest hours of your life right before the light breaks through, bringing with it relief from what is troubling you. Continue reading

Out with the old, in with the new

Unless you’ve been living under a rock your entire life you’ve no doubt heard the song “Auld Lang Syne”.  It’s traditionally sung on New year’s Eve to ring in the new year.  You’ve probably sung that song many times and never given a second thought to what exactly those three words mean.   Continue reading

Showing grace, even when they don’t deserve it

Show grace

Grace is a word that has many definitions.  When we hear the word grace the first thing people probably think of is the blessing we say before a meal.   They may also think of someone they know whose name is Grace.  It’s a popular name again and many parents are choosing to give this beautiful name to their newborn daughters.  But did you know that grace also has other meanings?  One of those is to show a person kindness, even if they don’t deserve it.   Continue reading

Thankful and grateful, I am

The month of November usually brings a rush of thankful feelings to most people. I guess it’s Thanksgiving that’s behind those feelings.  It’s wonderful and great that we do give our thanks on this holiday but really, we should be giving our thanks all year long instead of on just one day in late November.   Continue reading
