How Do I Change Directions?

How do I change directions? This blog addresses the last of the “Four Important Life Questions” series we began together on the first Wednesday of this New Year. Thank you for hanging in and doing the hard work required by honestly answering the previous three questions: (1) Where am I?, (2) How did I get to where I am?, and (3) Where am I going? Are you ready to change something about the way you do life? The change may be something small or truly life-altering. It may require you […]

Where Are You Going?

Where are you going? Where will you be if you continue the path you are on? Regrettably, some people look back on life and remember bad decisions that set them on a destructive course in life. Others wish they had taken a chance or a risk instead of being frozen by fear. Day after day they took the broad road of least effort or resistance and gave little thought to where the road would end. Does this sound familiar? Is this what Jesus meant by his warning in Matthew 7:13-14? […]

How Did You Get To Where You Are?

How did you get to where you are? In the previous blog I raised the question, “where are you?” Hopefully, you’ve given some serious thought to what it is that is causing some real discomfort and pain in your relationships or other areas of your life. You know that getting that problem resolved would make life much more pleasant and easier for you. You think you know the problem, but where do you start to fix it? This may come as a surprise to you, but what you think is […]

Where Are You?

Where are you? This is the first important life-question you must think deeply about and understand if you are to make the changes necessary to get you to a better place in life. In order to plan a new course, to change direction, you must deal with the reality of the here and now. Thus, the first question. Where are you?  Let me explain what I mean by this question. So far as I know, the first recorded instance of this question was God’s question to Adam in the Garden […]

Is It Time For A Change?

Is it time for a change? The tumultuous 2022 ended a few days ago. That was a rough year for many of us and we hope 2023 will be kinder to us. Perhaps you, like many folks have made or are making goals for the New Year. You want some things in your relationships and other aspects of life to change and see 2023 as an opportunity to re-set, to start over, or make some changes and adjustments that will make your life more enjoyable and meaningful. Is it time […]

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 […]

Everyday Faith

Everyday faith. Is faith something that pertains only to the “spiritual” realm; i.e. God, heaven, Jesus, Christian living, etc.? While I believe that we are “saved by grace through faith” (Ephesians 2:8), I am also becoming aware that the need for faith or trust is woven into the fabric of everything we do as humans. Faith is necessary to operate in the “seen” world in which we live as well as the “unseen” realities of God and heaven. We don’t use the word faith very much to describe the attitude […]

How Is Your Vision ?

Our subject today is vision. Your eyes are a marvelous testimony of the ingenuity of our Creator. If you haven’t done so, take some time to investigate some of the marvels of one of the most intricate and wonderful parts of your body, your eyes. For many years I had perfect (20/20) vision. But as I continued to age, I needed glasses with a corrective lens to enable me to read and see things up close more easily. Another change came and I now wear glasses to correct my vision […]

Dealing With Disappointment

For the past several days I have been dealing with a major disappointment related to the book I’ve been working on for almost three years. About a year ago I made contact with an agent I had a good feeling about and we hit it off really well. He liked my idea and was very helpful and encouraging in the early days of the work. We were excited and shared hope and an expectation about getting the book published. Everything was going well, and then life happened. This man became […]

Who Are You Trying to Please?

I believe we are in a cultural war that will determine the future of our country. Forces of hell are working to change the very nature of our society in several different ways. Evil is behind this effort in high places in government, schools, powerful corporations, and many media outlets to replace the Christian principles that undergird our constitution and way of life. They are inciting hate and division which can ultimately destroy us. Those who participate in these activities have a plan based on lies and use intimidation, and […]
