10 Minutes to Transform your Life
Posted on January 10, 2008
I'm in touch with men every week who can't figure out why they feel a nagging sense of emptiness.  They, however, really don't think about this much one way or the other.  They keep themselves busy with work, ESPN, and as much sex they can get.   Plus, when these men pause long enough for some self assessment, they can't express ...

Sex Sins Directly Proportionate to Secrets
Posted on January 3, 2008
Roaches roamed my grandfather's house.  He couldn't afford an exterminator service.  I remember as a kid coming into his house one night after being away past dark.  When he and I entered his pitch black kitchen and turned on the light, I jumped as three roaches scrambled like crazy to disappear.  Roaches roam at night; they can hide ...

Christmas Reminder of Our Great Need
Posted on December 20, 2007
If our greatest need had been technology, God would have sent us a scientist. If our greatest need had been money, God would have sent us an economist. If our greatest need had been pleasure, God would have sent us an entertainer. But our greatest need was forgiveness, so God sent us a Savior! I don't know who wrote these words, but he or she gets the real meanin...

Both Lose If One Wins
Posted on December 6, 2007
In marriage there is some conflict. It all boils down to this: how happy you are as a couple largely depends on how you handle conflict. In a marital scrap, if one wins the quarrel, and the other loses it, then in reality both lose.  In working through a disagreement, both have to feel good about the outcome, or resentments will start to fester over time.   Resentme...

Christians Prescription Medicated
Posted on November 29, 2007
Does anyone think we all need drugs today? Ever notice in this new century how many people are on prescription mood-altering medication?  Both  non-Christians and Christians.  For young adults, tt's almost like drinking coffee.   The Nashville Tennessean reported roughly 40% of incoming freshmen at Nashville area universities in a recent year were o...

Thanksgiving Takes Practice
Posted on November 26, 2007
Thankfulness takes hard work.  You'd think you'd come by it naturally.  But we don't.  I've never met a person who is happy, who is not immersed in thankful thoughts. I've found that only those who regularly look on the sunny side have a shine to their lives.  Gratefulness is learned.  And It takes discipline.  It requires practice.  Like brushing ou...

Low Libido Man
Posted on November 20, 2007
A man who doesn't have much crank sexually?  Most Christian guys are trying to control unhealthy sexual urges and influences.  But what about the husband who's not meeting his wife's sexual needs (1 Cor 7:3-5)?   It could be more common than we might think. Why is it that hardly anyone discusses the man with low libido?  One reason is that it seems unmanly ...

Temptation: Can't You Handle It?
Posted on November 20, 2007
As a five year old, I'd run to my father when a certain 11 year old bully would pick on me.   My reliance on Dad would dispel my fears.  As long as I was in my Father's presence, although weak compared to the bully, I was safe and empowered through him. I once tried to take care of the bully myself to prove myself to him and to me.  A mistake.&nb...

Do Real Men Get Depressed?
Posted on November 1, 2007
A man in depression. Does it seem a little unmanly? I mean, did you ever see Rambo, Dirty Harry, or the Terminator in a funk? Depression seems to many as if to be strictly a female domain (you know, as in moody), not really a male thing. At least that's the message I've heard through the years from our culture. If I took my cues from Hollywood's action figures, I'd personally be in a littl...

Well Meaning Husbands
Posted on October 25, 2007
Ladies, Most of us guys truly desire to be good husbands. We feel rotten that we're often not. Part of the problem is that we're all inherently self-serving (Galatians 5:16-17). Another reason is that we men are often pretty near clueless about what our wives (or girlfriends) need from us. Self-serving? We can hardly help it with all the enticing distractions around us: The press...

Sex is Sex, Love is Love?
Posted on October 18, 2007
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. I had an honest approach, I thought. 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, I was being can...

Big Bang Within
Posted on October 4, 2007
The Big Bang theory now carries the day among the world’s prominent scientists. Unlike only 50 years ago, when many thought the universe always existed, most today believe there was a precise start-up moment. This released into existence life and the universe. There’s another kind of big bang. This one occurs the moment we genuinely accept and experience God’s forgiveness for the first time. J...

Heart Versus Behavior Change
Posted on September 28, 2007
Heart transformation or behavior change – which reveals more about whether a person is becoming like Christ? I say heart transformation. Why? Take my friend, Ron, 50 years old, a new Christian of one year. Ron’s been in prison and is presently on parole. He’s rough, has relationship problems and is easily ticked off. Ron's still a long way from a mature Christian. But Christ is growing a...

Pushed to the Fringes
Posted on September 20, 2007
Believers today hardly ever talk to others about how God has impacted their life. Christians are in retreat says noted Christian author Phillip Yancy. “Many retreat as Christianity gets pushed to the fringes of society.” I agree. Retreating is the opposite of what Jesus did. We’re supposed to be a battleship of love, not a cruise ship of pleasure. A few men are searching for something real...

Kicking a Bad Habit
Posted on September 14, 2007
The One Source that is essential to kicking a habit of porn, drugs, booze, anger, or depression is The Holy Spirit. In fact, this Source will empower you to eliminate any stronghold, including materialism and jealousy. The media does not have a clue. Most of your friends do not avail themselves to the source. You yourself perhaps haven’t yielded to this life-giving source of power. He&rsq...

60 Second Read Guarantee
Posted on September 6, 2007
Would you read a lengthy newsletter? For me personally, 60 seconds is about all the time I can take to read a newsletter. For this reason, I guarantee you a 60 second read. I'll make one point each week and prayerfully hope God somehow connects with you through it to bring you closer to Him. I'll be open with you about myself and my own journey of Christian faith. Some of my family membe...

Gary Chester Morse's Introductory Newsletter
Posted on August 30, 2007
A trillion blow-hards already on-line with newsletters and blogs. So, why the need for one more? A good question. My answer: many men are struggling. They're tired. They're isolated - disconnected from any soulful bonds other than maybe their wives. And often feeling distant from even her. But merely increasing the ESPN, porn, and/or Coors somehow just doesn't satisfy. I find few voices exis...

GOD TO THE RESCUE!
Posted on December 31, 1969
I was getting ready to leave for a business trip in Bristol, VA. I was sharing with the kids just before I left about Psalms 34:19. \"The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all...\" NIV. I was explaining that we can always count on the Lord. It was a promise from Him. In truth, I was teaching them something that I was struggling to believe myself. Right now, we are,,,...
