Things I Pray About

In the past we’ve talked a bit about some formal and basic ways of praying. Today on this edition of “Becoming Today” I want to share a more personal approach to prayer. In the Bible we are taught that prayer is an evolving, ever changing, developing, growing means of interacting with God.  Most often itContinue reading “Things I Pray About”

Gratefully Persevering

While a common thread in our conversations over the course of this year has been raising the banner of “Resurrecting Positivity”, yet on this edition of “Becoming Today” I have an uneasy feeling. One I need your help with. I’m feeling the need to talk about how to persevere. To persevere allows us the abilityContinue reading “Gratefully Persevering”

Per Severe

St Patrick: Real and Imagined

Are you wearin’ the green today? If you are not, are you worried you may get pinched? Are you preparing the corned beef and cabbage, while looking over your shoulder at a four leaf clover?   Today is St. Patrick’s Day and the gap between truth and fiction is quite wide. We’ll try to narrow thatContinue reading “St Patrick: Real and Imagined”

Found It! Plus Random Thoughts

Yes it appeared to have just disappeared but I have found it. While yesterday I reported it seemed to have ascended without a trace, I guess the Internet finally caught up with my time, so I’ll share it with you on this edition of “Becoming Today”.  Yesterday I shared a description of an image ofContinue reading “Found It! Plus Random Thoughts”

Still The Birds Sing

Like most of this month, this week has continued to find ways to cause me to become extremely adaptable and highly flexible. We began our discussions with me sharing my personal struggles of late, and how I have been overcoming and working my back towards being more “Becoming”. I have more to share about myContinue reading “Still The Birds Sing”

What The World Needs Now,…

This is not the post I had planned for today. I find myself at the keyboard much later than usual, as just after 9:30 pm last night-Wednesday 23 February, my time – already the next day, 5:30 am Thursday in Kyiv, as we saw the first disturbing reporting of an apparent attack possibly leading toContinue reading “What The World Needs Now,…”

Uneasy Feeling

As we’ve begun this new year I shared that as a common thread in our conversations over the coming 12 months, I’m raising the banner of “Resurrecting Positivity”.   And yet on this edition of “Becoming Today” I have an Uneasy Feeling. One I need your help with. For several days I have felt this way.Continue reading “Uneasy Feeling”

My Way To Pray

In the Bible we are taught that prayer is an evolving, ever changing, developing, growing means of interacting with God.  Most often it is done  through a spontaneous, individual, unorganized form of petitioning and/or giving thanks. For many they hope that it is always simply ask and you shall receive. I’m sure you’ve had thoseContinue reading “My Way To Pray”

Momentum Through Prayer

Developing your prayer life empowers you. When we do we are strengthened lifting our minds, hearts and spirits. So Saturday I urged you to take a prayerful intercession. Asking the Lord to help reveal your life’s purpose, noting it would  be healing, calming, strengthening, building, growing and most of all “Becoming”. I asked you toContinue reading “Momentum Through Prayer”

Praying For Purpose

This week we are exploring the purpose of prayer in our “Becoming” and today will extend our conversation to include praying for our purpose. More on that in a moment but first, when we last spoke, I hope you’ll recall this part of the discussion. Practice makes perfect. The old adage holds true especially whenContinue reading “Praying For Purpose”

How To Develop Your Prayer Life

This week we are focusing on the concept of prayer. What is it? How to correctly use it and what to expect from it.
