Faith cannot be repossessed


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


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

In the beginning there were just three words


The Book of Genesis in the Bible is about the beginning of all creation.  It’s the story of how God created something that didn’t exist before.  I believe that came about because He had an idea and wanted to create something and give it life.   He had a desire to build something from nothing and bring it into greatness. While I’m no expert I don’t think there was anyone else around to deter Him from bringing His vision into the light.   He decided He wanted to do something…..and He did it. Continue reading

Are you a George or a Clarence, or both?


My very favorite movie in the whole world is “It’s A Wonderful Life”.   It came out in 1946 and starred James Stewart and Donna Reed as George and Mary Bailey from Bedford Falls,  a small midwestern town.  In the movie George is the long-suffering older son in the family who longs to escape the confinement of the small town he was raised in.  He feels suffocated by it and wants to get out and see the world and has no plans to return once he leaves.  George’s best laid out plans to leave Bedford Falls are derailed time after time.

No, you do not have my permission to make me feel inferior



Have you ever heard the quote “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent“?  It’s a quote by Eleanor Roosevelt, who was married to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt.  I looked up a lot of her quotes and some were very fitting, even in our modern times.  From what I read it seems like Eleanor was full of wisdom.  Her husband was elected president in 1933 and served three terms.  Back in those days women were still expected to smile sweetly and keep their opinions to themselves.  How wonderful is it though that this great woman DID speak her mind?  She was a trendsetter for sure.

Inspired thought comes at the strangest times

The Micah Principle Logo

The past several years have brought some startling changes to my life.  Some of those changes were unwelcome at first only to become welcome ones after the fact. Everything in life is a learning process.  This year has brought about some very welcome changes for me personally.  Historically, I had always been a very negative person.  The glass was never half empty for me; it was nearly dry and there was no more to refill it. Continue reading
