The symbolism of my 3-hour Denver hike with the bull snake, 3 fish and the prairie dogs

So last night I returned to Denver from tending to the funeral of my oldest brother Keith from Indiana. I love to go for runs, walks and hikes and the weather was perfect in Denver this morning for a long run, walk and hike on a trail that I had not ventured on before. I went about 90 minutes in one direction towards the Rocky Mountains. On my way out I noticed something I had never seen on any of my hikes before that were not around any body of water (stream, creek, river, pond, lake, ocean). I saw 3 large fish that were about 18-24 inches long. It seemed strange to me as the nearest stream, creek and river was over 10 miles away and there were no ponds around that would hold fish that large nearby as I was near the high point of the area. I then hiked another 90 minutes and realizing that I did not bring any water with me, decided to return as the temperatures were warming. I had noticed a sign warning me about rattle snakes in the area that I was hiking in. About half way back to home I saw a…

Don’t worry…..be happy!

For many people, worry and fear is a constant state of life.  They worry about their children, their spouse, their finances, their job, their health, and on and on it goes.  Worry is fear based, which is a spirit of the enemy.  The enemy whispers to you in order to get you on his territory so that he can torment you to never enjoy peace in your life.  Peace should be normal for every Christian but we know so many in the church who call themselves Christians, who are are fearful everyday.  They think about what could happen that could be bad.  They come up with many scenarios how they could lose their home or farm, how they won't have enough money to pay for their bills, how they may lose their spouse if this or that happens. It is so critical to be aware where your thoughts are coming from.  Anything that causes you to fear, worry, become angry, take an offense of otherwise lose your peace, is always from the enemy.  FEAR stands for False Evidence Appearing Real.  The enemy is real and will whisper to you in your mind and if you do not shut him down,…

Overly Controlling People are controlled by fear

Over the past two years I have ministered to thousands of people around the world who all have struggled with similar issues.  They have grown up with the lack of unconditional love from a parent (usually a father) which affects them in dramatic ways for a lifetime.  Why does the lack of love from one's parents have such a huge impact on a child and their relationships throughout their life? What is the driving force that causes them to have limited peace in their lives?  What causes them to have significant strife in their lives that counseling never seems to address? When a young child grows up with a father (or mother) who is not there for them emotionally, the child will hear the enemy whisper to them that they are not wanted.  They will feel rejected.  A spirit of rejection then continues to whisper to them in their minds causing them to believe that they cannot trust their parent (and later is transferred to their spouse and others in their lives so they do not trust anyone, but themselves). If a parent treats their child with more harsher treatment, such as critical words, manipulative control, yelling or otherwise abusive…

People who grew up in fear feel compelled to control other people

I have ministered to thousands of people around the world who have had challenges with feeling compelled to control other people in an unhealthy way.  Anytime someone feels they have to control another person in an unhealthy manner it is always based out of fear.  The enemy whispers to them about various fear based thoughts to cause them to control other people who they have relationships with.  Then they end up sabotaging the very relationships that they are so desperate to maintain.  And it all starts when the person grows up in a family where their father or mother did not protect them or love them unconditionally. A typical scenario is a little girl who grows up either without a father involved in her life, or a father who did not love her unconditionally and may have been critical or emotionally abusive or worse. The more pain she grew up with, the more impact that pain will have over her, causing her to control based out of fear as she did not feel protected.  The enemy then starts to whisper to her when she is young, telling her that she cannot trust her daddy (because it is true). But then…
