Looking Ahead-A Parenting Series

Looking ahead. Next week we’ll come to an exciting finish of  ” Five Life-Changing Truths.” I hope you have found these biblical messages to be encouraging and challenging in your walk with the Lord.  My purpose for this message is to tell you what’s next, to look ahead at what I’ll be sending your way over the next several weeks. Beginning the second week in October, I will be doing a series of 6 blogs on parenting called “Biblical Foundations for Successful Parenting.” There is so much at risk for […]

My Choices, My Character, and My Destiny

Your choices determine your character, who you are. Your character determines your destiny. This blog is about Truth # 4 in a series I’m calling “5 Life-Changing Truths”. This and the other life-changing truths are covered extensively  in my book , Heaven’s Currency, Investing In The Things That Matter Most. http://www.cosdavis.com/heavens-currency-investing-in-the-things-that-matter-most. Here is the essence of Truth # 4. ” My choices determine my character, which in turn determines my destiny.” Think about it, memorize it, and repeat it often to yourself.    Sometimes we are faced with competing choices.  Which […]

Two Worlds In Conflict

You live in two worlds. Here is truth # 3 of the 5 Life-Changing Truths we’ve been considering, ” I live in a two-world marketplace in which I invest every day.” Say that to yourself, think about what that implies, let it sink in a bit. Everyday you and I make an investment in the two-world marketplace in which we live. This is the third truth I write about in  my new book, http://www.cosdavis.com/product/heavens-investing-in-the-things-that-matter-most The fact that you live in two worlds is especially important for you to understand if […]

God Loves Me and Has a Plan for My Life

God loves me has a plan for my life. This is life-changing truth # 1! Why is it # 1? Think about the impact that believing that truth can have on your life. If you believe there is a God who is the creator and ultimate authority of this world, then does it matter what you believe He thinks about you? Of course it does. We were created by God to live in relationships with Him and others. You were born to human parents who were supposed to love you […]

5 Life-Changing Truths

Today we begin a new series about “5 Life-Changing Truths.” Why this series, this subject? Because truth is vital to living well and to healthy  relationships. Because this is such an important subject, let me share a definition, my understanding of the meaning of the word “truth.” These statements are consistent with how I use the word. Truth is ” the quality or state of being true; that which is true or in accordance with fact or reality” https://www.google.com/search?q=truth&rlz=1C1GCEB_enUS984US984&oq=truth&aqs=chrome.0.69i59l2j0i20i131i263i433i512j0i433i512l2j69i6. Without truth our marriages, friendships, and all meaningful relationships and transactions […]

The Life I Now Live

“The life I now live.” Perhaps you recognize these words as part of the Apostle Paul’s explanation of how he had come to live after he surrendered his life to Christ. The complete idea goes like this, ” The life I now live, I live by faith in the Son of God who loved me and gave himself up for me.” Galatians 2:20. “I did it my way.” Recognize the source of those words? These words punctuate the end of each stanza of Frank Sinatra’s 1969 hit, My Way. To […]

Toxic Thinking

Toxic thinking. Have you ever known someone whose thinking has been poisoned by the words and actions of others? I’ve known several folks like this. Many of them developed toxic thought patterns about themselves because of verbal abuse by a wounded parent. There is an old saying in Scripture that goes something like this, “The parents have eaten sour grapes and the children’s teeth are set on edge.” Toxic or poisoned thinking is often a generational issue; the grandparent is angry from an unhealed wound, afflicts their child with their […]

The Danger of the Drift

Drift. “To float or be driven along by a current of water or air” is one way Merriam-Webster defines the word drift. When I try to visualize that word in action I think of myself sitting in a small boat in a stream, paddles pulled inside, allowing the movement of the water to take me where it wills. Another vision I have is that relaxing in a quiet place, mesmerized by the puffy white clouds floating along on the canvas of a beautiful blue sky. These are relaxing and refreshing […]
