The Judges

Do you know the Judges?  You may even be one yourself. Yes? No? Ok, you be the judge.  So, just who are these Judges anyway? They are the ones who have a double standard. They have one for themselves and one for everybody else. They are the people who can say things to others, but when those same things are said to them, they become emotional, judgmental and critical. They are the people who can do certain things, but when others do those same things, they become emotional, judgmental and critical. In their minds they are above everybody else. Such Judges may have a rude, selfish, holier than though demeanor. They don't take well to constructive feedback and reject the truth about themselves, especially if that feedback and honest commentary comes from someone who isn't as well versed in the scriptures as they think they are, or comes from a person of lower status, or a person without a high position, or doesn't have a fancy title, or is lacking an impressive

The Word of God

Another meaning for the word of God is the bible. "And he said: "Truly I tell you, unless you  change and become like little children,  you will never enter the kingdom of heaven"   (Matthew 18:3/4) Have you ever picked it up? As you can surmise, my blog is based on the bible. That's the foundation for everything I write. I sometimes wonder what type of person reads my blog. Who are the people? What type of background? Who knows? It doesn't matter, because my main purpose is to encourage all people through a biblical framework. I want all of us to know God, to communicate with Him everyday, and to experience Him on an entirely different level. So considering that, I don't think I'll completely know who my audience is exactly and that is just fine with me. My goal is for all people from all walks of life, to see God. One of the most important ways people can develop a relationship with God is through His word. It offers so much


"As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good... " 1 If anyone or anything is against you,  God will turn it around. He will give you dominion over much.   That's a loaded verse isn't it? It's usually a reference to negative events that happened (or didn't happen) in our lives, that God ends up turning in our favor. It's a hopeful verse. I like it. Just like I still like watching one of my favorite fictional stories, the fairy tale of Cinderella . The story centers around Cinderella and her jealous, wicked stepmother and stepsisters. It is the story of a girl who was loved by her father who passes away and is left by the very people who were supposed to love her, but hated her immensely. Isn't there a real story of a man named Joseph 2 in the bible who was also hated by those who were supposed to love him?   But what was meant for evil, God means for good. If bad and negative things have come your way

Appreciation and Depreciation

Is your value increasing or decreasing? "Appreciation of any asset or currency is the rise in market value of that asset/currency over time relative to its historical value/other currency. The opposite of appreciation is depreciation which is the lowering of value." 1 Translation: Appreciation - value goes up.                     Depreciation - value goes down. Have you ever wondered why certain things we think, say, and do, increase or decrease in value/worth? I'm going to use the simple financial concept of Appreciation and Depreciation to help illustrate my point of how we think, what we say, and what we do, will help us or hurt us. In other words, what we say (think and do) can and will be used against us if we're not careful. We are what we think 2 . When I talk to certain people and they have a defeatist, woe-is-me, doom and gloom mindset and attitude, chances are their vocabulary will mirror that thinking and chances are they will not act on the
