The dog days are over || Positive thoughts by Cory Jones

There’s a story about a 5-year-old prince named Mephibosheth, who was a son to Prince Jonathan, who was the son of King Saul. King Saul had been in a war with a man named David for many years, and on this particular day, the battle had taken the lives of both King Saul and his son Jonathan. David was now coming back into the land, headed for the palace to begin his reign as king. So a young boy, playing in the courtyards without a care in the world, had quite the rude awakening. In monarchy reigns, when one...

Keep love moving, Treat people right || Positive thoughts

Something that Jesus said got me thinking. He warned about times when “Sin will be rampant and the love of many will grow cold…” It’s the love growing cold part that caught my attention. If love can grow cold, then can it also be heated, or warmed, can it get hot? In science, there is the idea that when water is cooled its molecules slow down even to the point of freezing. And, when it is warmed its molecules move faster and faster until it bubbles over. I think this is a good analogy for love too. When we...

Relationships, discipleship and church – life shouldn’t be lived alone

There’s a verse that I hear regularly used by officiants at weddings that describes God looking at Adam and saying, “It’s not good that man should be alone.” Honestly, that’s quite a puzzling statement when you think that Adam was walking and talking with God in the garden of Eden.

And yet, even with this spiritual connection in place, God looked...

I recently was reading a saddening study that stated that the few weeks after Valentine’s Day are now being referred to as D-Day in some scientific circles. The research-based this on the growing number of divorce papers that are served during this time, more so than any other time of year. Reading this, got me to thinking about the number of people that are holding out hope for something different, only to have their hopes dashed by a haphazard attempt at reconciliation through a tent sale closeout on last-minute flowers and a “lucky if you get a good one”...

Letting go of your piece to hold onto His peace

A quick glance at social media or a venture into the world of the latest news story will continue to prove that we are a world of opinions. Everyone has their piece that they hold on to and fervently stand up for. And with everyone battling over how right their piece is, we’re left with a world with no peace. I recently heard a pastor refer to people holding tight to their piece as having a “Messiah Complex.” They feel it is their job or duty, that they are the only one that can fix whatever piece they see...
