 If we just had our own “Easy” button… 

Remember those Staples commercials with the “Easy” button? 

Wouldn’t it be great if we all had one of those? 

It seems life would be so much more manageable if whatever we needed changed, fixed, or done could be handled by just pressing the Easy button. 

Unfortunately, that is not how it works, unless you are a toddler! 

We have to put in effort, willingness, and old-fashioned work in order to survive and grow. 

This is a spiritual principle and sometimes we forget this. 




The Bible has a few examples where Jesus asks impaired and sick folks if they want to be well. 

He immediately heals them when they say yes, but like Paul Harvey used to share, there is always the “rest of the story” that we need to know in order to be able to understand the healings. 

These folks demonstrated faith, hope, and willingness long before Jesus came to heal them. 

This is why he healed them because he knew that they had put in the hard work and the HEART work ahead of time to prepare them to receive His healing. 


How’s that working out for you? 


 Are you just sitting on the sideline wishing and waiting for Jesus to fix you or your situation or are you doing something daily to demonstrate your faith by providing the needed willingness and effort to show you are doing your part?.. 


Check your experience… 


“Yet they got well.” Big Book pg 110 

Lord, let us provide action daily to show our willingness to change and grow closer to You and Your will for us, AMEN. 

“Would you like to get well?” John 5:6 


Have a blessed day Y’all!

Keep pressing on… 

Have you noticed how much more automated our lives have become? 

From the GPS systems in our devices and cars to the “smart” appliances that can alert us to when they need attention or restocking, we now have more things than ever that can do our thinking and work for us. 

While automation is a nice convenience that allows us to focus our time and attention on other matters, how do we keep our focus on our spiritual growth? 

I enjoy my daily Bible study along with the spiritual tools and devotions that are delivered to me daily via email, but I remain grateful that I still have to apply the humble willingness to study and learn daily. 

Applying what I learn in the Word to my life daily helps me to keep walking with Jesus and pressing on toward His will for me. 

Thank goodness I have not automated this part of my life! 

This would block me off from the sunlight of His Spirit and I could become lost in the illusions of this material world. 


 How about you? 

What parts of your life have become automated that perhaps are removing you from growing spiritually?.. 

Check your experience… 

“The point is, that we are willing to grow along spiritual lines.” Big Book pg. 60 

Lord, let us not automate our daily time with You in the Word, AMEN. 

“But I press on” Philippians 3:12

Regaining our sight..

Have you ever noticed how our attitudes, behaviors, and even our sight can be influenced by pride, anger, greed, lust, envy, gluttony, and or sloth? (PAGLEGS) 

These are influenced by our self-driven fears and change how we see things from how things actually are. 


Vision influenced by emotions is not clear vision. 

This poor vision leads us to all sorts of bad choices, actions, and decisions. 

Check your "vision" next time you are being led by emotions into hasty actions. 

Turn your will over to God and watch your vision (and emotions) be restored...

Check your experience... 

"His presence had been blotted out by worldly clamors, mostly those within me. And so, it has been ever since. How blind I had been." Big Book pg. 12-13 

Lord open the eyes of our hearts so that we can see past the emotions of the moment, AMEN. 

"Brother Saul, the Lord Jesus, who appeared to you on the road by which you were coming, has sent me so that you may regain your sight and be filled with the Holy Spirit." Acts 9:17 

Have a blessed day Y'all!
