The Dreaded “M” Word

Inspiration Point (1326461099)First, I would love to thank the many visitors to Inspiration Point. I trust that you are enjoying the new look. I really do appreciate the visitors coming from different parts of the United States and beyond.

 

When I created Inspiration Point, my vision is that of a magazine supplying encouraging stories of overcoming adversities. One day, I hope to post writings from other writers or appropriate videos.

Let’s get down to business, shall we? What is the dreaded “M” word? I will tell you. There’s actually two words: ministry and money. What am I talking about? Continue reading

Jesus: Table For Thirteen!

What if Jesus came to your town? How do you suppose the scenes from “The Last Supper” would play out? Welcome to Jesus: Table For Thirteen! It is a contemporary musical drama performed at Shore Vineyard Church.

The story takes place inside a fictional Italian restaurant called “The Vine”. The restaurant is in downtown Toms River. What? I thought “The Last Supper” took place in something called The Upper Room in Jerusalem?  Continue reading

Somebody Does Cares!

A couple of years ago, my mother and I moved back into the Whiting area of Manchester Township. When I first lived in that area, it was largely empty and there were a few retirement homes. Whiting was the same as living out in the boonies.

When I left for Stockton State College in 1983, I never imagined living back here. It was too isolated an area and it was a 30 minute drive to either Toms River or Lakehurst. The road going to Lacey did not exist. Without public transportation, I would be totally stranded. Oh the joke would be on me, if I had talked with my Father on April 1, 1983! Continue reading

Why Do I Focus on the “Love of God”?

Everyone Has A Part To Play!

I love it, when a plan comes together. When there seems to be a problem, a solution is just a phone call away. Here is what I’m talking about.  For the past year, I have volunteered at the Community Reformed Church, in Whiting NJ. What do I do? I help with the food pantry, on Monday. Continue reading

A Strange Scene Of Dragons and Words

Over the years, the Holy Spirit has show me, some very fascinating scenes in my mind. They have ranged from sailing vessel at sea, fortresses, television personalities and colorful dragons. Yes, you read correctly.

A couple of years ago, I was praying and the Holy Spirit showed me, an incredible scene. I would call it, a vision because I was awake. I’m not sure of the appropriate term. I would love to see what you make of it. I do have an idea and will share it. Yet, I’d love to get your responses. Continue reading

The Wayward Cart

Recently, I began volunteering at Community Reformed Church of Whiting, NJ. They  run a food pantry, a clothe closet and a hot meal, during the week. It appears that they mainly serve my area. It’s a pleasure to help this church in meeting the needs of those struggling in Whiting.

I have heard how God can use a donkey, to teach someone a lesson. How about a wayward cart? Continue reading
