Self-pity is Addictive!

Self-pity is Addictive!

Sometimes it is easy to start feeling sorry for ourselves. We feel as if life isn't fair . . . that things are happening to us in rapid successions that are life-suckers instead of life-givers. We ask, "Why me?" While these are normal things ...
Do you know any Debbie Downers?

Do you know any Debbie Downers?

Ever heard the adage "misery loves company?" Well, sadly it is true! When one is commiserating, it is never difficult to find a partner. "Self-pity is easily the most destructive of the non-pharmaceutical narcotics; it is addictive, gives ...
The Result of NOT Changing!

The Result of NOT Changing!

"I changed but he/she didn't." Far too often those are the words uttered when people find themselves at impasses in their relationships. One changed, grew, and developed and the other one stayed the same. Whether we like it or not - life is a ...
Are you really ok with change?

Are you really ok with change?

Are you GOOD with change or could you be stuck in a rut??? One of the things I hear my clergy friends share, although I'll confess, it doesn't really happen a lot at West (or that I am aware of, anyway), is that people SAY they want to change, ...
What could you change?

What could you change?

Change for the sake of change is not a "good" thing. It doesn't benefit anyone if it isn't just about doing things differently for no bigger purpose. However, many changes that we COULD make WOULD actually better ourselves and this life we ...
What If!?!?!

What If!?!?!

How many times a day do you start a sentence with the words, "What if?" "What if I don't get that promotion?" "What if my partner falls out of love with me and cheats on me?" "What if I get sick?" "What if I run out of money and don't have ...
A Motivational Manifesto

A Motivational Manifesto

Today, I really thought it would be powerful if instead of reading something I wrote, you could read and meditate on The Lion Chaser Manifesto by Mark Batterson, a pastor in Washington, D. C. May it be motivational to you to let go of your ...
Go Chase Some Lions

Go Chase Some Lions

How big is your lion? Have you ever thought of chasing a lion? Probably not, me either! Last year when we were in Africa we had an opportunity to go with the graduating class of Acres of Hope on a safari. We went early in the morning so we ...
Clowns and Butterflies

Clowns and Butterflies

Have you ever met someone with irrational fears? I like to pick on Kevin Scruggs, one of the great people of West, because he has this huge fear of clowns. We joke about this (so please know I'm not being malicious!) I've known Kevin for years ...
Worry and Concern

Worry and Concern

A mom and daughter were talking about her upcoming college graduation. The biggest issue at hand was what was going to happen once the graduation was over . . . where was the daughter going to live? What were her next steps going to be? The ...
It’s all about motive

It’s all about motive

It’s all about motive. This week we’ve talked a lot about pleasing people, what that means, and how it changes us if we aren’t careful. If you missed Sunday’s message – click here to check it out. It identified what people pleasing is, how we ...
Consistency of Values and Time

Consistency of Values and Time

"I just don't know what to do. She drains all my energy out of me. Every time I see her number pop up on my cell phone, I send her to voicemail because I just don't have the energy to deal with her at that time." Years ago a lady shared these ...
