Staff Trax

Love Jesus

What a great week it was! It started with a Super Bowl win, and continued with Ash Wednesday with the start of Lent and Valentine’s Day to focus on the loved ones in our lives. Specifically, we tend to focus on our spouse, partner, or significant other. While there is nothing wrong with celebrating Valentine’s Day and spending time with our loved ones, it is important that we do not overlook…

A New Year

The start of a new year — new goals … new resolutions … a fresh start to try something new or improve on oneself.

Maybe we will change habits that we do. Our lives change when our habits change for better or for worse and are one of the most powerful influences in our lives.

Praying and daily reading is to focus on oneself. Pick early morning before the house wakes up, even…

Every Cloud Has a Silver Lining

Another year is coming to an end, and there is so much to be grateful for. Most of the year in my Staff Trax I speak of giving gratitude, being in prayer, giving thanks daily, and helping others around you.

With the positive energy that you develop when giving gratitude and staying positive throughout your day, you will have fewer days that are not so gloomy. People who focus on the positive…

Treasure Every Moment

Treasure every moment that you have, and treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time with. Remember that time waits for no one.

Enjoy life; don’t worry about the future. There is no better time than right now to be happy, and happiness is a journey, not a destination.

There is so much uncertainty in life, so much that is beyond…

Challenges

There are many times that we go through challenges in our lives. We pray for guidance to help us through those times. But is that enough?

I start my morning with prayer, giving thanks for what I have and what God helps me with. I pray for my family and loved ones, and end with a prayer for myself. The prayer I ask is for guidance, protection, and many other personal thoughts. It’s a conversation…

Making Room for God

We all have busy days, and busy weeks. We have kids going to school, taking care of the house, yard, your financials, car repairs … and the list goes on.

Finding time to set aside for prayer can sometimes be put on the back burner. We often fear the difficult experiences of life such as illness, loss of loved ones, and financial hardships, only to discover that these experiences can bring…

Who Will You Go To?

Getting things fixed around the house seems to be never ending. Each weekend we’re working on the yard, fixing things around the house just to keep things working properly.

Many of us have sentimental things that we hold onto. Maybe it’s something handed down from your parents or a loved one. Maybe it’s a bracelet or necklace, an item you know you can fix yourself if it breaks, but…

Giving Thanks

Giving thanks is what I do throughout my day, in my morning prayers as well as before I go to bed.

I thank the Lord for all He has given me — my health, my shelter, a loving family, friends ... the list goes on.

God has answered many prayers for me throughout my life and throughout each day. And He helps me get through my day.

Take a moment each day to thank our Lord…

God Is With You, Always

Do you remember the story of the about the man whose home was flooded and he prayed to God to save him?

First, someone in a rowboat came by and offered to rescue him, but he refused, saying, “God will save me.”

The waters continued to rise, and a motorboat came by and offered to rescue him, but he refused and said, “God will save me.”

Then, as the waters rose, he…

Stop and Listen

When was the last time you saw a burning bush speak to you? Well, maybe not that dramatic. When was the last time you spent some quiet time in prayer, listening?

The scriptures give us many miraculous ways that God has come and called God’s people. While those Biblical signs of God’s call are amazing, maybe the ways God calls us these days are even more amazing. Maybe it’s not a…
