Talon’s Point of the Day – June 30th, 2015 God’s There, Just Keep Looking

While I often question details of my faith I don’t question God’s faithfulness (tempted as I may be in my weaknesses). There is certainly much I don’t know, but I know this one thing; With every storm I’ve seen His protective hand though at times it wasn’t until the rain passed and I could look back with dry eyes.

Keep praying and keep looking for God in every situation and eventually you’ll realize He was there all along.

Talons Point of the Day – June 27th, 2015 Where Will You Stand?

In these ever more challenging times, when the government of nations are driving divisions between its citizens and breaking down cultures so as to redefine societies and their mores I offer you this reminder:

Every one of us will stand before a sovereign and holy God soon enough. Who we sided with will be in sharp focus of the One who sees all.

We are being forced to take a stand whether we want to or not. Silence itself is a stand to cede ground to evil. I chose to side with God in this life no matter the consequence of man. You can side with man if you chose, not wanting to offend him (or her), but when each of us stand before God we will stand alone. No man, no government will stand in our defense. We each will give account to who we sided with and why.

Talon’s Point of the Day – June 26th, 2015 What Happens When There Are No Rules That Apply To You?

John Robert TransLegislator

What happens when there are no rules that apply to you? You can justify your previous wrongs by simply becoming your own rule maker. Thank you Chief Justice John Robert! I’m sure we’ll all get to make our own rules now, right?

Talon’s Point of the Day – June 21st, 2015 Praying or Braying?

True prayer is when we come before God’s thrown in determined agreement with His will, pursuing the knowledge of said will including knowledge of how to carry out our part of His plan. Instead we too often waste God’s time arrogantly proclaiming our will to Him and expecting Him to figure out how to carry out His part in our plan. Today are we truly praying, or just braying like stubborn donkeys?

Talon’s Point of the Day – June 20th, 2015 Paint, Don’t Smear

Some people spend each day lovingly turning their lives into beautiful portraits for others to enjoy. Others seem determined to squeeze everyone’s paint out on the ground and smear it until its a pool of brown muck that looks like a septic tank overflowed. Let’s paint with intent and not just smear.

Talon’s Point of the Day – June 17th, 2016 Who’s Really Leading Our Hearts?

Waiting on God to tell us everything we should and should not me doing is NOT being “lead by the Spirit” nor is it “spiritual maturity.” While there are things we wait on His leading over we don’t need to wait to be told to do the things we know we should be doing let alone waiting to be told to stop doing that which we know is wrong.

Just when I think I’m getting this concept down I find myself guilty of violating this simple truth. I guess I’m still a work in progress, hopefully with an emphasis on progress. How about you? Who’s really leading our hearts?

Talon’s Point of the Day – June 16, 2015 No Pity Parties

When you’re tempted to engage in a pitty party contemplating all the the things you’ve lost over the years just remember the most humble abode in heaven is more amazing than earth’s greatest mansions. Save your pity for the lost. There are no parties in their future.

Talon’s Point of the Day – June 9th, 2015 The Slave’s Choice

We are ALL slaves by choice, making us without excuse on the day of judgement. Either we choose to be slaves to the sin we were born into, or we choose to be freed from sin and become, as Paul called it “slaves of righteousness.” (Romans 6:19)

Obedience to sin? Obedience to righteousness? This is our choice today, as always.

Talon’s Point of the Day – May 30th 2015 – Foundations

When God decides to rebuild you from scratch He’ll likely strip you all the way down to your CDs, DVD, and BVDs and don’t be surprised if He doesn’t let you keep all of those. Before He can raise us up as lighthouses to others He often must first raze us to our foundation, which is Christ.

Talon’s Point of the Day – May 25th, 2015 Memorial Day

Today is the day we give special honor to those who gave all for the freedoms we have taken so for granted that we have granted our government the power to take them away. The day will come when our government will use said military to control its own citizens.

In the mean time I honor the gift given to me by the fallen soldiers of the past and all who served honorably. Yet I also grieve for what I know is coming.
