Why “Guard Your Heart” is for Everybody

Tags : 

guard your heartGuard your heart. It’s from the Bible verse, Proverbs 4:23.

Guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.

The subject of my book, The Wellspring of Life. The verse came to me several years ago through a sermon delivered at a church I didn’t normally attend. It was timely, immediately following one of the most challenging weeks one could imagine. And the message came with an overwhelming feeling of peace. Very surreal. I can only attribute it to God.

So I’ve been stuck on this topic ever since. And, I think this is a message for everybody.

Connecting the Dots in Real Time

Tags : 

Scooby connect the dotsConnecting the dots. It’s easy to connect the dots in a coloring book. Simply follow the numbers and the image is revealed. It could be a sailboat. Or a dog. It’s so easy any 6 year old can tackle the assignment.

The trail of this metaphor reveals something more. It’s the big picture of life. It’s sort of like putting together two puzzle pieces – they only fit perfectly in one specific way. It’s like finding your purpose.

The irony here is that while we can easily connect the dots in the coloring book, the idea is more complicated when trying to figure out the future here on earth. In real life, the dots can only be connected after the fact. It happens in real time.

The snow covered peak of Mauna Kea

What’s your best day ever?

Investing topic that came up recently with a few friends. They rattled it off without hesitation. I had to think about it a bit…

If you’re a frequent reader, you know that I love making memories. I call them “keepers” – those special moments in time that bring us great joy to think about.

Joy is so uplifting…

The Beauty of Second Chances

Tags : 

file0001657982077I believe in second chances. Where the heck would I be without one? Nowhere. Exactly.

Maybe whatever happened the first time around was out of your control. For instance, say your spouse passed away. Does that mean God wants you to be alone? Of course not! It’s simply a season of change, albeit a difficult one.

Sometimes relationships end for the wrong reason. You shared the same values and dreams but, for whatever reason, someone gave up. After careful consideration, you realized that you blew it. Hey, we all mess up at times. You may have to rebuild trust or communicate better. Is that worthwhile? If you still have feelings and there is an emotional attachment and attraction, maybe it’s time to give it another go.

Psalm 19: The Perspective of Life with God

Tags : 

life with a full rainbow

The first full rainbow.

A couple of weeks ago the Lord laid out the perspective of life with God by placing Psalm 19 on my heart. Specifically, verse 1:

The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of His hands.

I read it a few times and thought, hmmm, that’s a beautiful verse.

Then the rays of God’s light shined brighter. God showed up.

I was hanging out at the marina a week later and “coincidentally,” there was a full rainbow in the sky. I didn’t put 2 and 2 together just yet. Amazingly, the very next day another perfect rainbow showed up… exactly the same place in the sky. Now that got my attention as I’ve never had that experience before. After thinking about it for a while, I felt that God was communicating with me. Shazam!!
