My Own Worst Enemy

Many times, I have faced decisions and felt pressures from every side; some of which work to undermine correct decisions. The worst part is that not all of those pressures originate outside. The most difficult influences to control are my own heart and mind. Our fears and desires can be more overpowering than our circumstances. In fact, sometimes we short-circuit our own processes and make terrible decisions before we even realize it; we have become our own worst enemy.
The ability to walk worthy of the Lord demands a true understanding of God’s desires for our lives.
The Bible verse that has guided my life and driven my ministry for many years is Colossians 1:10. 

 “That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God;”

I wish I could say that because of this verse all my decisions have honored God. Unfortunately, I cannot honestly say that. However, I do believe that many more have followed God’s will than would have if these words of God had not been an integral part of my thought process. I pray that I never stop “Increasing in the knowledge of God.”

I am thankful for so much. God has blessed my life from the very beginning; growing up in a loving Christian family that understood and taught serving the Lord requires more than just lip service or wearing a cross around your neck. He has directed my life to acquire the necessary skills and training to serve God here. More than that, God has changed my heart, attitudes, and vision. I am happy to say that God has taught me mercy, grace, forgiveness and love; although I am sorry to say that too often, I was reluctant and resistant. Too many times God had to go to extreme lengths to make me what He needed me to be. Praise God that He chose to use wonderful caring people to make those changes in me. People like my wife Jackie, my sons Nate, Isaac and Luke, and so many others that have crossed my path or are still in my life. I thank God that He does not give up on me but continues His work tirelessly. My prayer is that my life and legacy will glorify the Lord forever.
