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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

We Need Hope

I must admit that my hope concerning the direction of our country has been running on fumes lately. This is a pretty miserable place to be in life and I don’t enjoy it or recommend to you or anyone else.  Maybe you are there too. Here are some questions I’ve been pondering and some of the answers I’ve been coming up with as I’ve been wrestling with what’s going on in our country and this issue of hope. 1:What is hope? 2.

Heart Maps

“Out of the heart come the issues of life.” Proverbs 4:23 Heart Maps. To most of you, this may seem to be an unusual combination of words or ideas. We often hear phrases such as heart attack, heart trouble, heart break, and heartache. And, we know what these words mean. But what is a heart map? To be honest, I don’t know if I’ve ever seen these words used together before. So, I may be coining a new word combination. Let me try to explain by discussing these words separately […]

3 Reasons Why Your Choices Matter

  Our choices matter. Do you ever consider how you got to where you are today?  Some people believe “luck” (good or bad)  or chance have played a major role in their fortunes in life. I don’t believe in luck or chance to determine my fate. I believe in God’s grace and mercy and my ability to choose. I heard the story about a famous golfer, Gary Player (a believer), being interviewed about his success on the links. “Gary, how did you become so lucky on many of your shots?”, […]

God Is With Us

God is with us! Personalize that idea a bit and say it out loud, “God is with me!”  I don’t know about you, but I assume you are about as human as I am. Any stress in your life? These last several months, and particularly the days leading up to Christmas, have been some of the most stressful I’ve experienced in a long time. Besides the self-imposed pressure of getting my book launched in early spring, I have recently undergone oral surgery to remove a broken tooth, my computer is […]

Love Gives

Love gives.  Christmas is about giving. The Christmas message is about the generous love of God. In a conversation with his nighttime visitor, Jesus speaks of his own birth in a lowly, smelly Bethlehem manger, “For God loved the world so much he gave his only son that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life (John 3:16).” In this Advent season, I want to remind each of us to think deeply about how love gives. As we consider the kind of love God gives, it is […]

Thinking About God

 Small god or Big God? Good God or Mean god? Weak god or Strong God? Have you given much thought to how you think about God and the effect that has on your emotions, your outlook on life, and how you live? How do you answer the three sets of questions above? Why does it matter what you think about God? It matters because your god or God is your ultimate source of authority, what or who matters most in your life. Your values and the way you live are […]
