  • his love prevails

    It’s taken me a long time to write this post. I believe God has been working on my heart for a long time. It’s not easy to get to a point in life where loving enemies is a simple response toward the hate pointedly directed at me. I don’t have many enemies, at least that […]

  • bombs of encouragement

    When is the last time you’ve read Romans 8? The family of God is plagued with people who desperately need encouragement in life, living, and leading. There’s a huge number of people who are trying to identify their lives with Christ, and yet a majority of books and blogs that are out there are hurting […]

  • an heir

    How many believers understand that we are heirs to receive all that God has? God has made us heirs. He adopted us through the death and resurrection of His Son. All that God has we will receive. How does that make you feel? I still struggle with some earning issues, as though I am some […]

  • miracles today

    Something that keeps jumping out at me in Scripture is faith. It’s everywhere. It seems to be very important. We downplay faith a lot in our lives and substitute the word “faith” in place of “religion” because it sounds better. We talk a lot about our own faith and its difference between the faith of […]

  • finding satisfaction

    This might not have anything to do with finding satisfaction, but a lot of us are looking for it. If you’re anything like me, most of the reasons I do what I do is to find satisfaction. My work doesn’t get published or printed until I find satisfaction with it. Our lives are consumed with […]

  • getting started

    Back in the day, dad had a little blue honda civic hatchback made in 1983. It was the car that took him to work every day. Eventually it became my first car. Do you remember those? Have you ever seen one? Imagine a Geo Metro but smaller. This car could fit in a Metro. It […]

  • thoughts of anxiousness

    Philippians 4:6-7 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.(NIV) Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank […]

  • A Different Gospel

    I miss this. Sitting down to take time out and journal really relaxes my soul. Lately things have gotten so busy at the church that I just haven’t had time to write about what I’ve read. Now I’ve finished Galatians on my own, but I don’t want to forget what God has taught me and […]

  • Made to Mirror

    There are so many examples that we can pull from that help us gain a better perspective on worship and the reason God made us. First off, He made us to worship Him. Lately I’ve been reading a book on worship by Tozer. He’s quite the amazing man of God. It’s encouraging to hear words […]

  • Sent On A Mission

    There’s always been something special about being sent on a mission. It makes us feel important. Growing up, we would play like we were soldiers getting order from our commander to perform some crazy task. My kids play the same way. When they watched Toy Story, they had to have to Buzz Lightyear that would […]
