911

Tim Clinton, Ed.D.   Every school kid in America knows to call 911 in a crisis. Not if everything’s well or fine and the day is normal. But in an emergency…when there is tragedy or danger… that’s when you dial 911. When you are in trouble or need help I’ve got another number for you. Remember…Psalm 91:1… “He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty.”(TAB) Is your heart heavy? Discouraged? Sick ...

Let’s Roll!

Tim Clinton, Ed.D.   Todd Beamer…Remember him? We should. None of us should ever forget. A true hero of September 11th, 2001, he led the guys that stormed the cockpit of United Flight 93 and took down three terrorist hijackers. Their courageous choice to fight back foiled the plot to missile the Boeing 757 into the White House. Instead, the plane crashed into an open field outside of Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The heroic act surely saved hundreds, if not thousands of lives. It cam...

Vapors

  Tim Clinton, Ed.D.   According to a recent study, the most read sections of the average newspaper are the Local news (65%) and the Sports (59%). Guess which is the least read section? You got it. The Obituaries. One of the reasons for that statistic is reading Obituaries reminds people of the reality that they too are going to die. They don’t want to think about it. Instead of facing reality, many men simply suppress the negative thoughts about death and go about their liv...

  Tim Clinton, Ed.D.   “I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.” — Philippians 3:14 ESV   “Every time I step on the field, I'm going to give my whole heart regardless of the score.” —Tim Tebow   At the start of the 1980 Winter Olympics in Lake Placid, N.Y., the U.S. hockey team was little more than an afterthought. The Soviets were seeded No. 1, and deservedly so. They had won five gold medals and one bronz...

A Mighty What?

Tim Clinton, Ed.D.   “…O my Lord,” Gideon said, “how can I save Israel? Indeed my clan is the weakest in Manasseh, and I am the least in my father’s house.” – Judges 6:15   “You may feel it is too late, that you’ve been robbed of your destiny. Don’t give up!

Tick Tock

Tim Clinton, Ed.D.   Imagine that you were given $86,400 a day, every day, for the rest of your life. Suppose you could receive that amount every day…but with a catch. You have to SPEND it every day. Do you think you could do it? We could probably have a lot of fun trying! God gives you 24 hours every day. That’s 1440 minutes a day. Or 86,400 seconds…every day of your life. He makes that deposit in your life daily. But there is a catch: You have to SPEND it…all of it…every...

Your Man Cave – A God Place

Tim Clinton, Ed.D.   “But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret…” — Matthew 6:6 ESV “Therefore, whether the desire for prayer is on you or not, get to your closet at the set time; shut yourself in with God; wait upon Him; seek His face; realize Him; pray.” — R. F. Horton   Where do you live? Where do you sleep? Where do you eat? When and where do you pray? Most would respond, "Over food" — "with m...

Flawed, but Incredibly Valuable

Tim Clinton, Ed.D.   “For I know that in me (that is in my flesh) nothing good dwells. . . If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.”—Romans 7:18 & 2 Corinthians 5:17 “God isn’t the God they told you about. He isn’t out to destroy you, demean you, embarrass you, or kick you out. Jesus went to a lot of trouble to give us stories that are surprising and profound. Those are stories of love, joy, and...

Celebrate Freedom

Tim Clinton, Ed.D.   On July 4th, 1776 the Continental Congress voted to accept the Declaration of Independence. On August 2nd, 56 men signed it. A new nation was born. Of those gallant 56 men, most were well educated and wealthy. They had prospered under British rule — but they were not free. And they paid a precious price in declaring their freedom, and the freedom of the new nation. In all, 5 of the 56 were captured and tortured by the British. 29 had their homes, businesse...
