Relationships for Life

Posted by Chad Flowers in Relationships. No Comments

21st June

Relationships. Cliques. Dating relationships. Difficult relationships. Passion for others. What we say matters. Our walk with God. Parental relationships. Healthy relationships. Our relationship with our pastor. The topics just mentioned are a few we have examined over the last two and a half years of writing articles on relationships. When I began writing about this subject in January 2015, I was worried I would not have enough material to make it very far. I look back and realize this subject has barely been introduced. Much more can be written about relationships.

Consider the first paragraph of my first article from January 2015: “We were created for relationships. They are not optional. Our lives are spent around and within relationships. Children are in a relationship with parents, maybe even siblings; students are in a relationship with teachers and fellow students; employees … Read More »



I’ve Got This

22nd October

As a child I was the independent kid, ready to jump out there and take care of things myself. I didn’t need help. I maintained that mindset as I grew up. Give me minimal instruction and let me soar on my own. In every aspect of my life I came to realize I had implemented the mentality of “I’ve got this…. I don’t need your help.”

From work to school to even my relationship with God, I took control, assuming my way was the best way. I cannot tell you how many times I have said, “I’ve got this,” and sincerely believed it. But just a few months ago, God got my attention in a BIG way. I never controlled my life just to be rebellious or to defy authority in my life; I simply assumed I was being smart and … Read More »



Sacrifice…Really?

14th April

One day while I was getting some books from my locker, one of my friends told me she and a group of friends were going to the movies Friday night and wanted to know if I’d come. I told her I didn’t go to movie theaters.

“Wow! That must be a real sacrifice for you,” she said and went off to her next class. The next night on her way back from the movies, she was killed in a car crash. Sacrifice? Really?

A few months later, I was walking up the sidewalk to school when a girl I vaguely knew came up beside me and began to walk with me.

“You’re that girl who always wears skirts, right?” she asked.

“Yes, that’s me.” I replied.

“That must be a tough sacrifice for you to make,” she remarked.

I mumbled noncommittally and climbed the … Read More »



Why Me?

23rd March

In Job 1:1, the Bible talks about a man named Job and describes him as being perfect and upright. He was living up to all the requirements of God as far as he understood them. He exercised himself to always have a conscience void of offense toward God.

He was also a blessed man. In Job 1:3, the Bible tells us that Job had seven thousand sheep, three thousand camels, five hundred
yoke of oxen, five hundred female donkeys, and a very great household. This made Job the richest man of the east.

One day, Satan came before the Lord and they talked.

God: What are you doing here?

Satan: Just roaming around on earth seeing who I can destroy.

God: Have you considered My servant Job? He is one of a kind. He tries to please Me and follows My commands to the best … Read More »



When the Flowers Mold

Posted by admin in Uncategorized. No Comments

24th February

Ah, that moment. You know the one. When you lean down to take a big whiff of those memory-laden roses, and you’re slapped in the face with a gruesome and unfriendly scent. You’re immediately tossed into one of two responses. One response is to rush to the cabinet and grab the plastic wrap. These flowers are going to stay on your table until the day you die. Even if you have to quarantine your table, they will decompose there.

Or, the moment the first stem turns a tad limp, you grab those flowers up and start nailing them to any breezeless area in your house. Spray them with dust protectant and artificial rose scent, and then begin guard duty. Taser and remote for you. Shock collars for the rest of the unsuspecting souls who creep unknowingly in your crazed … Read More »
