Selflessness shines

Years ago, a dear friend encouraged me to invest in someone who could in no way pay me back. It was hard. If you think about it, it’s really hard. I finally went to a nearby nursing home and spent time with some abandoned old men. God showed up. There was nothing those old gents…

Divine Intervention – 6 reasons to rest whether He answers our way or not

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 6, 2011

So when does God intervene in our circumstances?  Can we inspire Him to intervene through desperate prayer? Why is it we pray and pray for an outcome only to have it go the complete other direction? Short answer – I don’t know. Long answer – Here’s my best shot…6 points. 1. Perspective – God sees everything in…

The Joy of Giving Life

Posted by Regi Campbell on December 2, 2011

When I hear those words, I think “He’s going to ask me to donate blood….or an organ!” Not it. The joy I’m speaking of comes from watching a man go “all in” for Jesus Christ and then seeing God redeem his marriage, his children, his business, his relationships. Everything. That’s life for me. Watching God…

Dancing With The Stars

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 30, 2011

After I surrendered to Christ 28 years ago, my wife said, “You’re not dancing any more!” She had seen me constantly striving for the approval of my superiors at work; always seeking the affirmation of our friends; always moving, never still, never content, always driving for something. All my life, I wanted to matter. I…

You Get What You Glorify

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 23, 2011

Have you ever watched as a young girl is “made up” by her mom, being introduced to makeup, rouge, eyeliner and lipstick while still an innocent little girl? Then she’s told how beautiful she is, not because she is, but because she (or her mom) are trying so hard. Have you been to a little…

A Dime a Day (Part 2): Bitter or Better?

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 21, 2011

Let’s focus on the person who was getting “a dime a day”, but the dimes stopped. How will he respond? Will he be grateful for the gifts he received for that time? Will he be a better person for having been helped….be motivated to pay it forward and give others “a dime a day” in…

A dime a day

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 16, 2011

One of my mentors credited his grandfather with this principle…. “Give a man a dime a day for 30 days – then stop. He’ll hate you for the rest of your life.” He was right. When we see someone with a need and we meet it, we feel good about ourselves. And after all, aren’t we…

Goal Achieving or Tension Relieving

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 11, 2011

Everything we do has purpose. Maslow would say the first priority of every human being is survival. So our motive for dodging the oncoming car, our motive for eating when we’re hungry, our desire for sleep…all come from our innate drive to survive. But after you get past that most basic motive, what drives our…

Posted by Regi Campbell on November 9, 2011

There’s a long-running debate among a few of my friends. We pretty much agree that God revealed His moral will for us through the Scriptures. And that He keeps His sovereign will to himself. We’ll have to wait ‘til heaven to understand all He was doing as we lived our lives here on earth. But…
