April 1, 2011 Leave a comment

Ok, so in April, we will read God’s Word to find the answers to blogged questions. If you have a question, email it to me at and I’ll see what I can do to answer it in the month of April.

April is “Answers” month! That’s our theme.

Each day I blog I will start out with a question in the title and answer it in the blog!

What I hope to accomplish is that you will see that the Bible provides us with many answers!

-Mark (glad for the answers God has provided us in His Word)

Where’s the Bible say “trust your SPOUSE”? (part 2)

September 29, 2009 Leave a comment

Remember Prov. 3:5-8 tells us NOT to trust ourselves but only to trust in the Lord with all of our hearts.

So where does the Bible say that you must trust your spouse?

Someone who had been cheated on by a spouse committing adultery asked me once, “How will I ever be able to trust ANYONE again?”

To which I replied with the question, “where in the Bible does God tell you to trust your spouse?” The person responded “no where” and then with “I am called to trust in the Lord.”

Now, in marriage, trust does build. As two persons are faithful, they learn to trust each other more but ultimately, they must be trusting in Christ alone. He will reveal to them what is going on in His timing, for His glory, and for their own good!

God is love and can be trusted completely. Anyone else falls short.

Jeremiah 32:17 (KJV): “Ah Lord GOD! behold, thou hast made the heaven and the earth by thy great power and stretched out arm, and there is nothing too hard for thee.”

Jeremiah 32:26-27: “Then came the word of the LORD unto Jeremiah, saying, Behold, I am the LORD, the God of all flesh: is there any thing too hard for me?”

By God’s own Word, He tells us to trust Him since He can do anything He wants and He loves you and I! Think about the implications of this for biblical counseling!

-Mark (basking in the glow of God’s glory in my life as I trust Him alone for eternity)

Is God ever thankful? (part 1)

June 5, 2009 1 comment

My heart overflows this week with thankfulness to God. He’s doing a great work in many marriages that we are counseling. 2 more marriages are reconciling this week alone! Praise the Lord!

He is knitting our hearts together with those who have a heart for helping hurting souls.

He is providing for our ministry in terms of people resources, prayer support, and finances. It’s been an amazing week in every facet of our ministry.

We are so thankful to Christ for what He is producing through TIL.

In general, I try to stay thankful to God but I must confess that I often let my temporary circumstances dictate my happiness thereby affecting my thankfulness, unfortunately. 

So let me ask you a question…is God ever thankful?

-Mark (waiting for your responses before I post my thoughts)

another counselor… (part 1)

December 5, 2008 2 comments

Before Genesis 3, there was only 1 counselor to Adam and Eve:


Before sin entered in the world, God gave counsel to Adam and Eve (Genesis 1:26-30). God knew that mankind was NOT designed to live independently from His Word and His counsel. Human beings are designed by God to be dependent creatures who NEED Him and His Word to direct them. Truth does not exist outside of Jesus Christ (Eph. 4:20).

But what happened in Genesis 3? For the first time in human history, another counselor entered the scene. This counselor portrayed God as a deceiver & a liar who had duped Adam and Eve. If they were to believe this counselor (and they did), then it makes sense that they would eat the forbidden fruit and disobey a God as evil as He was described by Satan (though it was and is a lie).

The world today offers 2 types of counsel: God’s Word of truth and Satan’s whispers of deception. Who do you listen to? Whom will you believe? Who can be trusted?

-Mark (thankful to be listening more to God than ever before)
