I have a podcast here that I did with John Kremer, the marketing guru. He invited me to share unusual places to sell books. Take a listen and hit those streets running: goo.gl/WGTF7.


Wow! What a response for the last post. 5,099 hits for one day is a record that will be hard to beat. What was the title? “We Never Have to Carry Our Sins With us.”

People wanted to know how to get the burden of sins out of their lives. Sins can pull you down like a huge magnate. It doesn’t matter who you are. You could be a teacher, doctor, garbage truck driver, soldier, or a pizza delivery guy.

Satan doesn’t care what you do. He just wants to control you. He uses guilt to push you down, and he hopes you stay down.  He delights is seeing you in pain. He delights in seeing you ready to give-up. I know I have been there.

I was at the end of my rope, and ready to be placed on Satan’s trophy wall. He had me right where he wanted me. I was Sitting in my Ford Explorer ready to check out of this hotel called earth.

That is where God came to my rescue. I should have known He was there all the time waiting for me to cry out to Him. That is exactly what I did. I said, “GOD I CAN’T TAKE THIS ANYMORE!

There was an instant calmness in my Explorer. It was as if God was saying, ” IT’s about time you came back to me.”

Yes, I was and the end of that thin rope, but what I didn’t know was that I was really holding on to the hem of God’s robe.

There is never a time when God isn’t near you. If He feels far away, guess who moved.

Always depend on God to see you through your storms and trials. It is when those storms come that He is nearest. He allows them to happen, but He helps calm them.


You are never alone.

You are never forsaken.

You are never unloved.

And above all…never, ever, give up!
