Lord, I Need a Breakthrough


“Lord, I need a breakthrough”.

Have you ever felt like this?  Do you understand the longing for breakthrough in your life?

Maybe you’re there right now. You’re on the verge of giving up. You’re barely holding on to the hope that someway, somehow, God is going to show up.

That’s a great place to be, my friend. You’re closer than you think.

What am I Supposed to do with my Life?


I got an email from a guy recently asking me why I became a doctor.

“Did you feel a deep sense of calling?” he wanted to know.

The answer is…no.

I did not get a letter from God with clear instructions to go to med school nor did I have a dream about it.

It’s Time to Break the Cycle of Lies


One of the worst habits I have is believing the lies that I hear.

Every day and in every way I am faced with every possible lie about who I am and what I believe.

And though I may have no control over hearing the lies, I do have the ability to decide what I believe.

It’s time to break the cycle.

Let me give you 3 Lies that you and I have believed that we must Work Hard to Reject: [Read more...]

How to Skin a Cat and Other Culturally Irrelevant Ideas


I’ve always been fascinated by the expression:

There are 10 ways to skin a cat.

Seriously? I mean, who really skins cats? And why do you need 10 ways to skin one?

We are living in days of chaos and an abundance of opinions on everything. It occurred to me that in the middle of the mess I can think of at least 6 ideas that might sound culturally irrelevant but are biblically and eternally relevant to you: [Read more...]
