My Style Of Counseling

Just a quick peek into my head ... and you'll find this video as my idea of a counseling session.

Perhaps that is why no-one is lining up at my door for
counseling : )

Are You A Wanna Be Author?

One of the things I would really like to achieve in my life is resourcing people through writing books. The whole process can be a bit daunting ... but I have found some resources that just might help... I won't tell you what it is... you'll just have to click HERE to found out : )

The truth is that in life... our greatest regrets will always be things that we did not do. If authoring is your gig... don't live with regret!

If you have other helpful resources... share the love!

I look forward to your comments : )

What Type Of Faith Do You Posses?

My time has flow... it seems like just a few moments ago it was 10:30pm on Wednesday... its Thursday now!

I have been thoroughly enjoying reading Craig Groeschel's book 'confessions of a Pastor'. I must admit that I struggle to be as honest as Craig is in this book! Craig... you da man!
One of my short comings is wanting people to think well of me... I suppose I have a tenancy to want to have things look better than they are sometimes... "God, please help me be honest."

Craig had an interesting breakdown of types of 'believers':
1) The Casual Believer
This person believes in God but has not surrendered to Him. Even though this person believes in God, he lives his life as if God doesn't really exist - a confessing thiest, but a practicing athiest.

2) The Convienient Believer
This person waves the Christian flag whenever it is convient and or it involves a potential benefit.

3) The Committed Believer
The road to committed faith is paved with personal abandonment and self-denial. Life ceases to be about us, and it begins to be all about God. The committed believer doesn't waver because of the crowd. He isn't moved by others opinions. He is a Christ follower all of the time. Complete obiedience and faithfulness are his goals.

So here is the challenge:
What kind of faith do you posses? Is yours casual - you're a good person who believes in God, but doesn't let your faith dominate your life? Or do you perhaps have a convient faith - living right when someone's watching, or when it might benefit you, but doing what you want te rest of the time? Or are you committed - wholly devoted to the One who's wholly devoted to you?
Great challenge... thanks Craig.

I look forward to your comments : )

Well, with infrequent blogging like this you can tell that I've been on leave. I have dropped all my usual routines and just unwound. Delicious!
