Daily Hope and Inspiration with Pastor Mark

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

Watch who and what you follow…

Remember playing follow the leader as a child?

While it was a fun game, it only required action to do what the leader did and not much thought was needed.

Sadly, we do this with some parts of our lives as adults.

Some of us don’t give much thought to who we associate with, what we are doing privately, professionally, and even spiritually.

Perhaps it’s different for you, but I have blindly followed only to end up in some bad situations due to my lack of participating with my mind and heart.

The challenge God gives us is an invitation to build relationship with Him daily through Jesus, His Word, and fellowship with other believers.

How is this working out for you?...

Check your experience…

“Follow the dictates of a Higher Power and you will presently live in a new and wonderful world, no matter what your present circumstances!” Big Book pg 100

Lord, let us stop the pattern of blindly following others and look to see what is good, AMEN.

“My dear friend, do not follow what is bad; follow what is good. The one who does good belongs to God. But the one who does evil has never known God.” 3 John 1:11

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?

Suffering from terminal uniqueness…

Have you ever noticed how different it feels when you are faced with an unusual experience or uneasy situation?

Now perhaps it’s different for you, but this selfish head of mine tries to make me feel isolated and alone and justify all the wrong elements that go against my moral fibers and character.

It’s like my head is trying to get me to turn my back on my faith and give in to those old ways that brought me nothing but chaos, calamity, and crisis.

The blessing I have is that when I face these experiences or situations today, my heart gently reminds me almost immediately of the Holy Spirit within me and that I am not alone.

I find that when I share these times with others walking the spiritual path with me that they have also experienced things of this nature, and...

I am not terminally unique!

Are you allowing your head to isolate you from your heart and others?..

Check your experience…

“But there exists among us a fellowship, a friendliness, and an understanding which is indescribably wonderful.” Big Book pg 17

Lord, let us look in our hearts for your Spirit and rely on our faith and fellowship with others to immunize us from terminal uniqueness, AMEN.

“The temptations in your life are no different from what others experience. And God is faithful. He will not allow the temptation to be more than you can stand. When you are tempted, he will show you a way out so that you can endure.” 1 Corinthians 10:13

Have a blessed day y’all!

Just focus…

It’s a tall order these days to keep our minds focused and clear.

It seems that no matter where we go, or what we are doing there are sights, sounds, and other things trying to grab our attention.

Heck, even our Smartphones can now chirp at us to let us know that we are near a good deal or a favorite place.

Advertising and marketing are necessary in our capitalistic society and our shopper’s culture.

Perhaps it’s different for you, but I find it hard to stay focused, especially with my mind that is attracted naturally to shiny things!

What I have learned through the schools of hard knocks and experience is that I can stay focused when I am constantly checking my motives and efforts.

Constant contact with the Holy Spirit from seeking God’s will throughout the day is what gets me through.

How do you stay focused?..

Check your experience…

“As we felt new power flow in, as we enjoyed peace of mind, as we discovered we could face life successfully, as we became conscious of His presence, we began to lose our fear of today, tomorrow or the hereafter.” Big Book pg 63

Lord, let us look to You to help us keep our minds and hearts clear from the distractions of this world, AMEN.

"But you should keep a clear mind in every situation.” 2 Timothy 4:5

Have a blessed day Y'all!
