The Process

Image result for harvest, planting, crop, seed,a process,

I’ve been on many road trips over the past several years.  I’ve traveled from Minnesota to Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, Kansas and Texas to name a few.  On the trips that are the within about 8 hours by car, I normally choose to drive to save money.  I don’t really mind driving, but learned that the first hour or two into the drive, I become extremely sleepy to the point where I must pull over at a rest stop to take a brief nap.  This obviously was an issue as it was causing me to arrive later than planned.

There had to be something I could do, but what?  While the solution is simple for most, it took a few trips for me to learn – I needed caffeine to stay awake!  Even with a good night of rest, I could not stay awake.  Therefore, I began to buy a coffee (Mocha actually) within the first couple of hours of my trip.  This kept me awake, but I was still feeling sleepy the first two hours prior to buying the coffee. I then decided I didn’t want to feel sleepy at all, so on my last trip, I drank my coffee at the beginning of the trip opposed to waiting two hours.  I did not feel sleepy. I stopped only for gas and dinner.  It took a few trips and adjustments, but I finally determined what worked best for me.  I no longer need a nap during my road trips and I’m saving time!

For some reason, God is stressing the importance of The Process to me on my last two blogs.  I believe, the Holy Spirit speaks to each of us and teaches us in phases how to improve, how to slowly get better.

Allow the Holy Spirit to teach you.  Learn from your mistakes/failures, and do your best to continue improve using the wisdom given to you from the Spirit.  Most of us adults, have lived long enough to know ourselves.  We know what makes us angry, sad, irritated, fearful etc.  Allow God to guide you in all areas where you need help. James 1:5 says, “If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you”.  There is truly nothing you cannot do that God has willed for you to do.  For the word says, we already have the victory and the enemy is defeated.  Time to walk in that truth.

Victory Comes with a Cost


I was recently at my son’s basketball tournament in Chicago, IL.  My son and his teammates are a good group of players, but each of them have one or two weaknesses.  In past tournaments we would do really well.  We would earn the right to play in the semi-final game, but then would fall short.  Surely this time in Chicago would be different....

Moving Forward with God  

Recently, I was studying Genesis 12 & 13.  It is the beginning of Abram’s, later Abraham’s, journey with God.  Genesis 12:1 reads, “The Lord had said to Abram, “Go from your country, your people and your father’s household to the land I will show you.””  That was quite a great call the...

Is it God or You? 

As we walk with God and ask Him to lead our path, we know to walk by faith.  We ask for him for direction and move accordingly.  However, there were times when I would ask for direction, but I didn’t quite get the result I was looking for.  I knew God was telling me to move that way, but I didn’t understand why it felt like a s...

All Things God Works for the Good

On this Resurrection weekend, God has had me to just stop and meditate on him.  Jesus, the Son of Man was sacrificed and slain for the crime of blasphemy.  He claimed to be the Son of God.  Little did the men know at the time, that He was telling the truth...

Blind Faith

“Now faith is the confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see”, Hebrews 11:1 .  “For we walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7….These are two of the most popular scriptures on faith in the bible.  In my opinion, having faith is one of the most difficult aspects walking with God.  I pray and ask G...

Do you trust Him?

I decided to make God Lord of my life in August of 2016.  Ever since then, my life has been directed by Him.  I have found surrendering control to Him to be challenging at times.  Even the times I know God has told me to do something, sometimes I wonder why or if I Him heard right?  Have you ever been there?  The bible says in Isaiah 55:8, ...

Are You Willing to Sacrifice?

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in Him, shall not perish but have eternal life” John 3:16….This is probably the most well-known bible verse today.  However, do we really know what God did?  The bible tells us that God “gave” his only son, Jesus,...

The Love of My Life

In my season of singleness, I sometimes have feelings of loneliness.  I have met and spoke to other singles who have similar feelings.  One of the weapons I use to fight off these feelings of loneliness is writing/journaling.  I pour out whatever is inside of me on paper.  Sometimes those feelings are positive, in a state of thankfulness.  However in my periods of loneliness, the writing tends t...
