Daily Hope and Inspiration with Pastor Mark

Spiritually filled positive thoughts and actions to help start the day the right way!

New day, fresh start, new attitude...

Sometimes we get into the routine of our daily lives and what used to be exciting or fresh in our hearts becomes dulled by the daily monotony of habit and comfortable routine.

Overtime, if not checked and renewed, these tasks, routines, and even relationships can suffer from our being taken hostage by monotony.

There is a solution.

Even when our tasks and routines need to contain the same things, we can renew our spirits daily by simply turning our will and our lives over to the Lord daily!

Come on ... Give it a try... and as always... Check your experience…

"This means a new attitude and spirit all around." Big Book pg 99

Lord thank You for allowing us to refresh ourselves and our lives through renewing ourselves daily with your Spirit, AMEN.

"Let the Spirit renew your thoughts and attitudes.” Ephesians 4:23

Have a blessed day Y’all!

Join me in looking at the things we face daily with passages from both the Big Book and Bible!


How about a daily dose of hope and inspired thought?

Inner peace…

Have you ever noticed how many products out there that are marketed to us to either provide a solution or bring comfort to help us with our stress, pains, and general discomfort?

There are a few products that I use that help me. I have a special brand of shoes I wear for my duck feet. I have a special pillow for my weird neck, and even ergonomic office products to help me with my posture.

These items bring my body peace but how do we find that inner peace?

Like most of us I have sought my inner peace through a myriad of outer solutions, but the only thing I have found that works and continues to work no matter what is my relationship with Jesus and the peace He brings me through His Holy Spirit in me.

Worldly clamors will continue but I can always look inward and know that there is peace in my heart if I seek it…

Check your experience…

“We will comprehend the word serenity and we will know peace.” Big Book pg 84

Lord, let us know that the peace of mind and heart You have given us remains in us as long as we seek it, AMEN.

“I am leaving you with a gift—peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.” John 14:27

Have a blessed day y’all!

Roots and all…

Weeds have the amazing ability to grow anywhere.

Even here in Arizona, weeds find places to take root and thrive. I particularly enjoyed watching a root grow on an overpass I used many times weekly years ago. Over the year the city crews would come and do the landscaping and gardening but even though the weed was cut, it continued to grow back taller and thicker.

The fact of nature is that unless the root is removed, it will continue to grow and thrive.

We also have weeds that take root in our hearts and like other weeds; they will continue to grow as character defects until we remove the root.

Think about it, bitterness, jealousy, and fear take root in us and from them weeds of anger, pride, greed, lust, and all kinds of negativity grow from them.

If these are left to grow then they influence not only our attitudes, but then spread to our behaviors and characters.

When this happens, the weed grows stronger and is harder to remove.

However, we do have a great weed killer that is environmentally friendly!

When we ask the Holy Spirit to help us look at our character defects and then ask Him to remove them root and all, we become free for these weeds!..

Check your experience…

“I ruthlessly faced my sins and became willing to have my new-found Friend take them away, root and branch.” Big Book pg 13

Lord, let us turn our hearts over to You and allow Your grace and mercy to clear the weeds of fear, bitterness, and self-will from us roots and all, AMEN.

“Watch out that no poisonous root of bitterness grows up to trouble you, corrupting many.” Hebrews 12:15

Have a blessed day y'all!
