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…

How we talk to our children later becomes their inner voice

Have you ever considered what you say to your children can haunt them the rest of their lives if you speak negative words of death over them?  Conversely, if you speak positive words of encouragement and life that they will blossom like a flower that receives sunshine and water and will see blessings in their lives.  How often do you think and take inventory of exactly how you speak to and treat your own children?   Those who spoke negatively every day to their children as they were growing up will see children who are largely affected in a negative way for the rest of their lives.  Unfortunately the parents will then blame their children and speak out words of condemnation over them causing a huge chasm to expand throughout their lifetimes between them.  Their children will naturally distance themselves from their parents - wanting to stop the onslaught of death words over them.  Then often the parents will blame shift the reasons that their children want nothing to do with them onto their victimized children causing their children to feel hurt deeply and rarely wanting to ever speak to them as their parents need to own their abuse over…

Thanksgiving Peace or Strife?

With the Thanksgiving holiday season coming upon us in America, many people are looking forward to what the holiday truly represents in thanking the Lord for family, blessings and lots of food, but at the same time are dreading having to see certain relatives. The relatives who make you feel loved and produce laughter are those you want to spend time around. But most families have at least one (and often times many) person(s) who they want to avoid like the plague due to various past hurtful comments, condemning looks, snide remarks, prideful statements and other strife that they have experienced coming out of their mouth. 2 Timothy 2:20-26 NKJV “20 But in a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver, but also of wood and clay, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore if anyone cleanses himself from the latter, he will be a vessel for honor, sanctified and useful for the Master, prepared for every good work. 22 Flee also youthful lusts; but pursue righteousness, faith, love, peace with those who call on the Lord out of a pure heart. 23 But avoid foolish and ignorant disputes, knowing that they generate strife.…

Christ is Returning for a Pure & Spotless Bride….Are You Ready?

Many people who attend church regularly today believe that if they would die that they are on their way to heaven. Most who have any type of leadership position believe they are definitely going to get into the pearly gates with no problems. But what does the Bible say? The only one who counts is the Lord God Almighty. Matthew 7:21-23 New King James Version (NKJV) 21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ Verse 22 states that "Many" will say that they had prophesied and cast out demons in the Lord's name and done many wonders but the Lord will tell them to depart from Him. Why? It's because the Lord knows their hearts and minds. He knows how they treat their spouses and children. He knows if they are in…

How do you know when you are freed from the enemy? You will feel peace, love & joy

So many Christians are tormented in their minds every day with thoughts that flood them throughout the day from the enemy.  They have no idea that their thoughts are not all their own because the church fails to teach them at a level that they can truly understand. They talk about taking their thoughts captive but fail to give them tools to actually do it on a day to day basis.  What good is it to memorize Bible scriptures yet never feeling at peace, love or joy on a daily basis?  We as a church must do a better job at explaining to people that Christ died on the cross and then gave us His authority to do the very same things that He did while on earth.  We simply must take His authority and walk it out. When we hear a thought that comes to us that causes us to be in fear, anger, take an offense, we must recognize that the thought is from the enemy and to shut the thought down immediately.  So many people have been hurt by their parents growing up or have been molested, had incest or raped and the enemy now has legal…

The Lord Wants To Restore Us To Enjoy Childlike Fun and Innocence

So many people have had the innocence of their childhood stolen by the enemy through a myriad of circumstances (lack of a father’s presence in the home, verbal / physical or sexual abuse, controlling mothers or fathers, sexually molested by a friend, family member or parent, loss of a parent). When a person grows up void of a healthy environment, the enemy is able to hurt them from the beginning and many go their entire lifetimes struggling to recover the innocence that was lost. Many struggle with healthy marital relationships, causing them to choose people who have demons who then torment them even more, causing divorces and having their own children to get hurt in the similar ways that they were harmed. There are few people in the world who know what it was like to grow up in an environment of unconditional love, joy and peace with healthy fun to enjoy a normal life. They never were able to laugh with their moms, dads and siblings as all they knew was arguing, strife and tainted love. They never were able to simply enjoy a walk in the park, bike riding on an adventure, swinging and playing with the true…

How to find the real deal and marry a godly mate

So many people in the world simply want to be loved unconditionally by another person in a committed and trusted marriage for a lifetime. Unfortunately, most people have been hurt when growing up in their childhoods by fathers or mothers who were not present, distant, unloving, critical, controlling, or at the worst case of the spectrum - had abused their children emotionally, physically, and even sexually. Then when the child grew up, he or she heard thoughts in their minds that they thought were their own but were not. The enemy whispered thoughts into their minds such as "Your father did not love you," "You cannot trust your father to protect you," "Your mother wishes you were never born," "Your father hates you," "It is all your fault," "You cannot trust anyone in your life to protect or love you," etc. The enemy whispered these thoughts to them, causing them to believe that the thoughts they were listening to for a lifetime were the truth. Therefore, they began to replay those thoughts in their minds thousands of times, over and over throughout their lives. They began to reason that they could not trust anyone else in their lives and that…

Living a peaceful life in relationships

Most people desire to live a life that is free from strife and arguments.  If you are married to someone who consistently speaks hurtful words, controls you through making you do what they want or else they make your life miserable, or continually strives with you, then it is very hard to enjoy your life.  Some people have gone through divorces and are single yet they become lonely and then settle on marrying someone so they can have someone to talk to and share their lives with but then later they contend with strife similarly to their previous spouse and are more miserable then when they were single.  So it seems like it is a lose-lose situation in the world of marriage and relationships for more than 75% of the people in the world. Unfortunately, the enemy is behind the majority of strife in relationships as he causes people to hear his voice and then they act upon it or speak out what they are hearing and never realize it.  When a child is hurt by their parents through rejection, control, criticism, sarcasm, or worse – then they begin to hear the enemy speak to them in their minds and…

The secret to true unconditional love

This morning after I woke up from a dream, the Lord told me that He wanted me to write a blog talking about love.  That there are so many people in the world who have been hurt by other people and just want to be loved unconditionally by someone.  The Lord also told me to correlate what is actually happening on a spiritual level to cause people to hurt other people, thus causing so many to have broken hearts and not be able to trust anyone to love them again.  Therefore that is the focus of my blog today. There is a song by the Beetles called "All you need is love" that has as a part of the song the following lyrics: "All you need is love, All you need is love, All you need is love, love, Love is all you need" So many people in the world want someone to love them, yet do not see themselves in the world as those who are married to them see them.  Women in particular want their husband to unconditionally love them, listen to them express their concerns, hopes and dreams, hug them, cuddle with them, put their arms around them, hold…

Think about where your thoughts are coming from

Have you ever thought about.....where your thoughts are coming from?  Most people don't.  They simply assume that all their thoughts....are their own thoughts.  When in reality our thoughts come from three places.  Our own, the enemy's and the Holy Spirit or the Lord.  Most people in this world do not hear from the Holy Spirit so their thoughts either come from their own or the enemy's.  But many who attend church and call themselves Christians also hear from the enemy, much more than they would think.  If you are walking in anxiety and fear much of the time in your life, then you are hearing from the enemy on a regular basis.  If you are angry and take an offense easily, then you are hearing the enemy whisper to you.  If you feel rejected constantly, then the enemy is talking to you. Think about it....you hear a thought that goes like this "Your husband does not love you like you deserve.....he is the reason why you don't feel loved....he argues with you all the time.....you deserve someone better....you need to divorce him and find someone who will cherish your heart and treat you like you deserve....your husband is the reason…
