Beware of your Woman's Nine Words
Posted on October 1, 2009
Just for fun.,Here's how a woman "communicates" with her man, using only nine words. These are nine words or phrases that husbands across the land know all about, understand, and learn to be quite attentive to: Fine -  This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right, and you need to shut up. Five Minutes - If she is getting dressed, th...

20 Minute Magic = More TLC From Wives
Posted on September 24, 2009
My soul mate deserves at least 20 minutes daily of talk time with me.  I call it the 20 minute magic in my book, Save the Males.  Women process life much, much more through talking than we guys do, so we need to put listening to our wives into our daily schedules.   Please keep in mind that when we men are listening, we shouldn't offer solutions to any p...

Both Your Playmate and Praymate
Posted on September 17, 2009
I've personally never known a couple who has divorced who has prayed together for many years.  I've been on the look-out for an exception to the rule but haven't come across even one.   The key word here is together.  This is very different than praying separately (although that, of course, is a good thing).  There is something more powerful th...

SEX IS SEX, LOVE IS LOVE?
Posted on September 12, 2009
For a long time, I thought sex is sex and love is love, and the two aren't linked. I thought I was ethical when coming on to women because I had what I considered an "honest" approach. My honest approach was this: I made it clear, I'm not in love with you, but I like you. So, if the sentiment's mutual, let's hook up and enjoy ourselves. Wasn't this honest and forthright? Well, yeah, ...

GOD CANNOT WITHHOLD HIS GOODNESS IF....
Posted on August 21, 2009
God cannot withhold his goodness to a humble man.  God must come down and flow into the humble man. (Peter 1:5.    This truth personally warms the cockles of my heart.  Does it do the same for you?   Long, long ago Meister Eckhard wrote:   What God gives is his being, and his being is his goodness, and his goodness is his love.   ...

FEAR NOT
Posted on August 6, 2009
by Clay Campbell, a Men Who Win Ministries Partner. All of us experience fears of some sort, from time to time.  But the Bible tells us more than 300 times to "fear not ". That's a lot of "fearing not".   But most of the things we fear never come to pass.  Many people are just plain bent  out of shape in their fears. Most of those fears are NEVE...

LAYING DOWN FEAR
Posted on July 24, 2009
Let's together lay down our fear - get over being afraid.  God tells us throughout His Word:  Be not afraid (Psalms 112:7-8; Isaiah 41:10; John 14:27). But how can we not be afraid, when all around us there are calamities pouring down upon humanity?  The re-assuring reason that we can, is that God's grand plan for humans cannot fail, because He has become one of us in Chris...

PAIN IS A FRIEND
Posted on July 9, 2009
Get this great truth down, and it'll help you deal with life: Everything learned is from pain. Everything else is just information. My friend, Bob Warren, coined this phrase, as he studied various scriptures that attest to it. (Romans 5:3-5 and James 1:2-4). Bob's adage is so accurate because it recognizes that pain drives us to trust God from the bottom of our hearts, instea...

YOUR LAST LITTLE THING FOR CONTROL
Posted on June 25, 2009
The sooner you release to God that last hold-out for control of your life, the more content you'll be.  When you realize you're just along for the ride, and God's at the wheel, you will - under the power of the Holy Spirit - relinquish it, and then be able to sit back, relax, and enjoy your journey with God so much more (Psalms 138:8).  Where God is taking you and me is too m...

BY THE TESTICLES OR BY GOD'S WAY
Posted on May 28, 2009
It'll up your sex life.   It'll up the T.L.C. from your wife.   It'll make you take time to hear her heart.   It'll resolve money issues.   That's what daily quiet time and praying with your wife will do for a marriage.  But this is a side effect -- not to be the main motivation for the two spiritual disciplines of quiet tim...

REFUSING TO WEAR MASKS AND PLAY GAMES
Posted on May 15, 2009
We refuse to wear masks and play games.  This what the apostle Paul mandates in 2 Corinthians 4:2b (Message Bible).   This is quite a mandate since the unconscious mantra for a man is to conceal what's really going on in his inside.    Isn't it interesting that what is most important to us guys, we talk about the least?  That's the reason&...

BROKEN
Posted on April 30, 2009
Here's part of the poem, Broken, written by Andy French, one of my young Men Who Win ministry partners.  It is about the immense benefits of brokenness and repentance.   Repentance is a precious gift, But there are better gifts we're told. But he who trusts this little lie, Will watch his heart grow cold.   True brokenness is worth much more Than gifts that ...

THE KISS OF GOD
Posted on April 23, 2009
Don't miss next week's newsletter: "Womanizing, Adultery, and Homosexuality - Do they have anything in common?" To experience the kiss of God is to desire Him more.   What is the kiss of God?  It is coming into His presence in a supreme powerful, intimate way -- to be immersed and absorbed in Him.    The expression, Kiss of God,...

DECEIVINGLY DELIGHTFUL - THAT GERE MOVIE
Posted on April 16, 2009
My wife and I recently watched the movie, Nights in Rodanthe, starring Richard Gere.  The movie has all the elements of a feel-good flick: invigorating sunrises; strolls on the beach; wild horses; candlelight dinners; a hero's death; the absolute best love letters; and the dramatic transformation of a hard-heart that takes place in an instant.   The delightful, although deceitf...

WHEN UNCONQUERABLE IMPERFECTIONS PERSIST
Posted on April 2, 2009
I have these seemingly unconquerable imperfections -- frustratingly persistent sins.  I wish that I'd have changed more than I have over the years.  (Is anybody else with me here?  If everyone's honest, everybody's with me on this.)   But God sometimes leaves us with our certain unconquerable imperfections, author Francois Fenelon says.  Is this just an excuse...

THE END OF CHURCH AS WE KNOW IT
Posted on March 26, 2009
In case you haven't noticed, the young, restless and tattooed have all but abandoned Christianity in America.   The 20 and 30 year olds are conspicuous, by their absence in church, compared to the over 40 age groups.  It is most likely true at your church as it is with the mostly older audiences you see on TV, in the churches of such popular pastors as Osteen, Stanley, Hayford,...

TYRANNY OF THE URGENT
Posted on March 19, 2009
How do you avoid frenzy?  How do you avoid the, typical middle-class, lifestyle of living as if your head's on fire?   The answer:  Prioritize!  Prioritize so that the urgent doesn't dictate our lives.  The urgent is merely an over-abundance of frivolous activities which only take up valuable time and can achieve results, but doesn't add much to what really co...

AVOIDING STRESS MELTDOWN
Posted on March 12, 2009
100 mph with their hair on fire.  That's how many are blowing through life.  The turbo-pace is chocked full of stress and irritability.   The hyper pace is not without unintended consequences.  My 90 year old Aunt Willie senses that people are under much more of a strain today compared to earlier less affluent, less rushed times.&...

COMING: THE BIG DAY OF GOD
Posted on March 5, 2009
Let's be mindful that God is masterminding history even as we face the national money meltdown and social chaos.   God does control the future, and everything is going to be made right.  We, who are friends with Him, look forward to that day of joyful celebration which author Eugene Peterson calls The Big Day of God.   The Big Day of God will be the decisive judgme...

ADVISING A PORN USER'S WIFE
Posted on February 26, 2009
What an array of wise answers from you, my readers, to my question from a few weeks ago, about what to advise the wife of a porn user.  Porn usage and addiction reign rampant among Christian men.  Many wives feel entrapped by their husband's little habit.   But there is great pain and condemnation on both sides.  He's embarrassed and fearful.  She's confused a...

What or Whom Can Be Trusted in our Meltdown?
Posted on February 20, 2009
This week's newsletter is from my Men Who Win ministry partner, Jeremy White, whose book, "Surviving Financial Meltdown", has just been released.  My 2/19/09 blog about my own personal response to the meltdown follows Jeremy's piece.   Amidst the doom-and-gloom economic headlines of the day, the Bible helps provide us the proper perspective. It tells us...

SUPER BOWL THREATENS FAMILY RELATIONS
Posted on February 16, 2009
Sports fans, forgive me.  In my 2/12/09 newsletter, I inadvertently referred to St. Louis as Pittsburgh in my piece about this year's Super Bowl. I think my mind got stuck on remembering QB Kurt Warner's former connections with St. Louis.   Here's a corrected piece.  No offense to you prideful Pittsburgh fans.   I'm told I came close to cheezing off ...

SUPER BOWL THREATENS FAMILY RELATIONS
Posted on February 12, 2009
I'm told I came close to cheezing off a family member during last month's Super Bowl. I had no favorite team going into the game, but as it progressed, I started warming up to underdog Arizona.  The Cardinals just couldn't help making mistakes, but they were playing their hearts out, and I was just knocked out by QB Kurt Warner's performance. At half time, I announced to my wife...

AMPLE POWER DESPITE NO AC
Posted on February 8, 2009
I had no newsletter or blog last week because of the ice storm that has ravaged western Kentucky where I live.   My wife and I were without power for numerous days but not without a higher kind of power --  the power of God's Spirit.  His Power reigns even when no AC exists (Ephesians 3:16).  This is the supernatural part of a rea...
