Still Trapped? I realize this is an odd question after months of major restrictions, but do you ever feel trapped? I mean trapped in a toxic relationship or to an event from your past that you just can’t seem to shake. These can be what’s called Soul Ties. They’re supernatural bonds that create
long-lasting relationships going deeper than surface-level friendships. Often, soul ties are positive connections uniting people. Ever met someone and instantly you felt a deep loyalt
Soul Ties Soul ties are God’s invisible miracle of creating long-lasting bonds of relationship that go deeper than surface-level friendships. Have you ever met someone for the first time, and it was like a light popped on in your soul? I’m not talking about a romantic connection, but yeah, that happens too. Positive Connections I think about the reaction when Mary went to visit Elizabeth in the New Testament. They were respectively pregnant with Jesus and John (the Baptist).
Why Men Walk Away: Generational Prodigals We’re trapped in a vicious cycle. By we, I mean me. Well, not just me, but men, or at least a lot of men, if not most. Was that confusing? Welcome to the world of why men walk away. We’ll stand the gap for friends, coworkers and people we’ve never met before, but our families fade into the midst as America’s men walk away. Why do we do it, what are the costs, and most importantly, how do we fix this? Walk Away Gene Before I came to kn
I sorta figured my latest article was going to grab someone’s attention. It did. Lots of attention, but I am so appreciative of people sharing their heart along with their opinion. How about you? Have you checked out “Christians to LGBTQ: “Our sins are better than yours.” Let me know your thoughts. Do Good,
Scott I also mentioned the United Methodist Church’s big vote – Check that out Right Here. Your Mission Assignment Thanks for connecting with me here at The Bro Code. The
March Madness: Day 5 Hold that line… I spent my youth doing one thing. Can you guess what it was? Well, besides sports of course. I spent it doing what most young boys do – trying to earn the approval of their dad. A few years ago I sat next to him in a hospital bed as he lingered in and out of conscientiousness. For 3 days I held that line in hopes he would bless me with the peace I needed. With his last breath, he took with him the 3 words I’d never heard him say, “I love y
March Madness: Day 2 Grieving loss cannot be avoided. There’s a logical procession for getting through the stages after having lost someone you love. It took almost 20 years to finally grieve my mom’s death. At the time, siblings fought over money and materials, but I didn’t recognize that all of the anger was a sign that everyone was in pain. There was no healing, reconciliation or forgiveness. Everyone just went into their dark corners until eventually we began showing up a
Sin Transference | Do You Do It?
Do we take responsibility for our actions, or throw others under the bus like Adam did to Eve? Let’s live with intention and purpose by accepting responsibility for our sins, and asking forgiveness. It doesn’t make us bad, just human. Allow God to show you His love for you.
Much Love & Respect,
Scott The man said, “The woman you put here with me—she gave me some fruit from the tree, and I ate it.” ~ Genesis 3:12 Much Love & Respect, Scott #
I Am Who You Say I Am Are we really? God makes it very clear who we are and why we are. It’s no mystery. Bring all who claim me as their God, for I have made them for my glory. It was I who created them.-Isaiah 43:7 We are His and we are wonderfully made, yet we carry around junk from what other people say or think as well as what we think about ourselves. If we truly trust God and believe that what He says is the absolute truth, then we must stop thinking of ourselves as fai
Power to the People (God’s People) I often wonder how many men who finally drop their hard exterior to accept the free gift of God’s loving grace, are soon turned away from pursuing Christ thanks to “religion.” Don’t let it get complicated. – God loves you – God is not mad at you – God forgives you – God wants to hang out with you – God wants to bless you “The legalistic mind basically mistrusts the free operation of God’s spirit in the church because the Spirit blows where i
14 Days of 31: Put Product On It Over a year ago, I’d begun asking Leah to cut my hair. I couldn’t see spending $25 on it every 2 weeks. She reluctantly gave it a shot. I ended up with a shaved head. A Little Off The Sides No matter, it grew back and after a while I went back to sporting a non-shaved head style. But, Leah was back behind the clippers. So this weekend, I asked her to shorten it a bit. She zipped through with the clippers and was done with the usual zero on the
4 of 31 Days: Forgiving Is Kinda Big Deal Learning to forgive is kinda like a big deal. It’s also possibly the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do. I don’t mean giving lip service to someone so they’ll get off your back after insulting you. I’m talking about forgiveness in the truest sense of God’s word. Men Struggle I think most men struggle with it because we are under the impression that forgiving someone lets them off the hook for what they did to hurt us. We amp up in the
Unforgiveness: It’s Your Jailer Struggling with past relationships, regrets or recollections that stir misery or pain in your life? Don’t misunderstand the negative power of unforgiving. It does cause pain, and can lead to physical illnesses and emotional misery. It’s sort of a pain prison where the ones we refuse to forgive are our jailers. They tug the chain, and we feel the pain. We can cut that invisible cord right this second by forgiving them. The three keys to genuinel
It’s good to be a good man. I don’t mean in the sense of trying to be better than another man, but trying to be a better self. I’d bet we’re all better men than when we began. Sure, we make mistakes, sin and fall short, but that doesn’t have to subtract points from the good man column thanks to forgiveness, repentance and restoration through Christ. Be watchful, stand firm in the faith, act like men, be strong. Let all that you do be done in love.

Profiles In Personal Pain: Which One Are You and How Do You Manage It? What’s really eating away at you? Are regrets consuming your thoughts so you’re forced to shut them down? Can you sit in silence without a mental movie flooding your brain and demanding that you fill the quiet? You’re not alone. The pain we carry from our past is tucked away and always available to muck up our lives or turn gold star moments into brown star regrets. We allow pain, shame and regret to consu
