We will get through

I know it’s difficult. It can be frustrating and stressful. It can be overwhelming and worrisome. We are all going through some major changes in our world right now and we must continue to do one thing through it all – seek the Lord! Never stop seeking God and keep your eyes fixed on the […]

Feeling Alive

I feel most alive when I’m doing what God has called me to do. Not that I feel dead when I’m not teaching the bible or ministering to people, but I do feel invigorated and excited every time I get to share. That’s one way I KNOW that I am doing exactly what God has […]

Peace, Sleep & Safety

Psalm 4:8 David writes, “I will both lie down in peace, and sleep; For You alone, O LORD, make me dwell in safety.” It’s super early in the morning and my wife and daughters are asleep peacefully. There is nothing but silence in our home except I can faintly hear cars of early morning commuters […]

Thoughts on Dependence

Failure is not final. Failure is an opportunity for a deeper dependence upon the Lord. There’s an element of intensity to storms but it’s that intensity that should drive us to dependence upon God. Cling to God 1st – consistently. Lean into the Lord with all of who you are. Depending on others for what […]

The Effects of the Unseen

Traveling yesterday reminded me of the many unseen germs that are everywhere! A study showed that the tray tables on airplanes have more germs on them than a toilet! You can’t see germs, but they are there – ready to attack you and give you a multitude horrible sicknesses. Yes I have Clorox wipes and […]

In the Air Individualist

I’m on a small plane flying from Mobile, Alabama to Dallas, Texas. It is quiet except for the air blowing from the vents above each passenger. Some are reading their books, some are gazing into their tablets or smartphones and others are asleep or resting their eyes in the little space that they’ve overpaid for. […]

Your heart while waiting

It’s so hard to wait. I’m in a line out the door at Wells Fargo as I’m writing this. People don’t have smiles because they know the wait will take a long, long time. As I’m at a stand still here I’m reflecting upon the last decade and how the Lord had me wait just […]

2020 – Run & Rest

My family slept through the New Year – and it felt good! My prayer for 2020 is that we would have rest through every situation that arises. I want to have a settled heart through the most intense situations and a peace within when everything seems chaotic without. That in the midst of the storm […]

How to View 2019

You’re not meant to neurotically reflect upon a passing year so much that it leaves you stressed and weary. In 2019 you had ups and you had downs. There were great times and there were difficult moments. Both the unexpected and inconvenient happened. You smiled and you wept. You laughed and you felt loss. You […]

Learning, Growing, Thriving

I’ll never forget teaching my oldest girl Hannah how to ride a bike. She was so determined and driven to get those training wheels off! So I helped and guided her to ride her bike without me. I’d say things like, “Keep your weight in the middle Hannah! Don’t lean to the right or to […]
