Mound Visits, 4/5/24

This morning I’m overwhelmed with grace, forgiveness and with the way God forgets our sins when we confess. If He didn’t forgive and forget, there would be the weight of sin separating us and it would be impossible to have a relationship with a Holy God. We have many reasons for giving Him our worship […]

Don’t believe the lie that you aren’t good enough. The cross and the resurrection was for you and for me. Jesus said, “…It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”(Mark‬ ‭2‬:‭17‬) “You, Lord, are forgiving and good, abounding in love to […]

Life is challenging, at times, for every one of us. We sometimes feel alone, but we are not alone. Trust God for comfort, peace and strength. “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.“‭‭(Psalms‬ ‭46‬:‭1‬) “Prayer opens the heart to God, and it is the means by which the soul, though empty, […]

Our words can motivate, encourage and bring people together. They can also bring pain, discourage and destroy confidence. Words can build up or tear down. How will we use them today? “Be careful with your words. Once they are said, they can be only forgiven, not forgotten.” (Unknown) ”The words of the reckless pierce like […]

Let’s place God first in everything we do today. Work as if you are working for Him. Play as if you are playing for Him. Treat others as if you were doing it for Him. Do this and be impactful and effective. ”I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me […]

This is Holy Week. This Sunday we will celebrate the resurrection of Christ. Between now and Sunday we should find time to pray and to be thankful that Jesus took our sins on the cross with Him. He paid in full. We should honor Jesus’ desire for us to forgive, serve and love others. “God […]

“It is not how much we have, but how much we enjoy, that makes happiness.” –Charles Spurgeon Living most of my life competing for the next win, I would often overlook the joy that came with simply knowing the young men on my teams. Very seldom did I ever say, “Lord, I am so thankful […]

There is great freedom in receiving forgiveness and in giving forgiveness. We can’t love God and love others as well without forgiving those who give us pain. When Jesus was in tortuous physical pain on the cross, (also in spiritual and emotional pain), He said these words: ”Father, forgive them, for they do not know […]

It was said 15-20 years ago that we are living in a post-Christian society. Now, I’m hearing that we are living in a post-character society. Funny how that worked. What can we do in our circle of influence to honor Christ and grow as men and women of character? Do we idolize or support men […]
