Over the last week I have been reminded how short our time here on earth can be. We have no control over when we will depart from this this life. The one thing never promised to us by God, is tomorrow. We have no guarantee that the sun will shine, that we will get outContinue reading “Life is Short”

Now, Will Be a Then
Have you ever had a song come on at the right moment? I spent much of the day just a couple days ago rejoicing at the fact that I could mow my own lawn. Many people may not understand that. I was reminiscing about my life around this time last year. I could barely getContinue reading “Now, Will Be a Then”
Refined By Fire
How much do you know about silver? I have been doing some research lately, because I know the Bible compares faith to precious metals that must be tested with fire. It also says much about being refined by fire. I feel like my whole year so far has been the refining fire. I truly believeContinue reading “Refined By Fire”
Yoked, A Parable
I have had a lot on my mind lately. I haven’t written anything in over a week. I have been throwing a pity party of sorts. When last I wrote and spoke, I talked about learning to walk in the Spirit. How we achieve that by metanoia. Metanoia is a Greek word, meta meaning above,Continue reading “Yoked, A Parable”
What Are You Wearing?
I don’t want to brag (ok maybe I do), I have a group of guys that meet at my house week after week. At our men’s small group, we encourage one another, strengthen one another, sharpen one another, and bear one another’s burdens. I love this group of guys. I pray for my favorite dudesContinue reading “What Are You Wearing?”
Run With Purpose
Sorry, it has been over a week since my last blog. Life began testing my family once again. Although life is hard at times, there are valuable lessons to be learned in the valleys, as I have said in previous blogs. This week has taught me to look within. To look at how far myContinue reading “Run With Purpose”
A Prodigal’s Story
How many people can really say they know me? I know I am vocal in my church. I have been teaching youth about Jesus for nearly ten years now. I get to pray on stage once a month. I have had the opportunity to preach to the congregation on a few occasions. I am theContinue reading “A Prodigal’s Story”
What? I Can’t Hear You!
Is there anyone in your life that you think of, when you get into a conversation with this person, it’s going to be them talking the whole time, and you fighting to get a word in edge wise? Chances are your mind immediately found a name or a face. We all know that guy.Continue reading “What? I Can’t Hear You!”
Fear and Doubt Like Kryptonite
Odd question, but what is Superman’s number one weakness? If you are a nerd like me, you know the answer is kryptonite. It is a small piece of Superman’s home world that emits radiation and renders Superman’s abilities useless. It weakens him to the point he becomes a normal man. What if Clark KentContinue reading “Fear and Doubt Like Kryptonite”
Suffering, What’s the Point?
I am not going to lie; this is going to be my longest blog to date. But the message is important. I have dwelt on it all day. If you can spare 10 or 15 minutes, this may change your perspective on suffering. This is important and I pray you take the time toContinue reading “Suffering, What’s the Point?”
