Another Season

Walk with Jesus

Walking in a shallow stream yesterday, I first thought myself to be most impressed by the large rocks that forced the water to flow over or around them. How steadfast they seemed! And, as the water rushed past, it caused deep holes and soft, movable sand around the rocks. The rock's steadfastness allowed the water to run deep, where it could be absorbed and retained to nou...

The Long Silence Broken

Word of the Day

Jonah 1:4 .....Well there has been so much "noise" in this personal, perfect storm that was "hurled" at me this week, that only now can I begin to hear again. What it might have been like when that man Jonah suddenly stood on the dry land, hearing God's voice, the second time. How can I say, I love you Lord, while floundering through another godless day. Trying in my fles...

Pray - Make Plans - Pray

Pray

" There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the Lord". (Proverbs 21:30) We sure are busy creatures. Last night my kids and I picked up my wife at the airport around 8:30 PM after she was out of state for work for a couple days. We drove home happy to be together, but everyone very tired after a long day of school, work, and play. "Tomorrow is very b...

Reconciliation - Thankfully.....

Word of the Day

Boy, this week all my favorite verses are coming up. I don't think it is a coincidence that is happening during my blog week. God has always been so good at giving me thought material! If you are reading along with the church outline this year, you just read 2 Corinthians chapter 5 today. Two parts always jump out to me and I'm so thankful for them time and time again. ...

You are Fearfully and Wonderfully Made!

stayConnected

Last night I was with a group of people and we were talking about what verses did God use lately to speak to us. Mine was Psalms 139 which I love for a couple different reasons. It starts out with reminding us that we are never alone. This is both encouragement for when you feel alone and afraid and also a warning for when you feel like God won't be watching you in your si...

Chop His Head Off, Tell the End, He is Praising Jesus!

Armor of God

I tried writing and rewriting several times what I learned today reading Luke 7, especially verses 24-28, but it was terrible. Attached you will see a video clip from Mark Driscoll that does a way better job summing up what I wanted to write.  When you look up synonyms for the word "justify" you can find words like excuse, explain away, or, rationalize. It is way t...

Quit Kissing Me Satan

Walk with Jesus

So recently I have been working through a student who is choosing a life of serving self and what it looks like for me to lovingly/Biblically confront them. Also watched a tv show where the main character, who was a doctor, was dealing with being addicted to pain meds and I watched as his friends and family tried (horribly i might add) to help him by confronting him on the...

Word of the Day: 1 Corinthians 2:2

Word of the Day

“For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and Him crucified.” 1 Corinthians 2:2 In Acts 18, Paul arrives in Corinth a political and commercial center of Greece which had a reputation for wickedness and immorality. It’s in Corinth that Paul meets Aquila and Priscilla who had just been expelled from Rome by Emperor Claudius’s de...
