My Repentance

I was given a book for Christmas by a fellow coach that I’m beginning to read (This Beautiful Mess by Rick McKinley).  This small snippet stood out to me this morning and as I sat back to process my heart was focused on how I repented after I was a follower of Christ. Repentance means…

Begin To Savor | Thoughts on Life in Middle America

Perhaps it’s a 50/50 shot at happiness. Perhaps we are all doomed. Perhaps we are all destined for greatness. There are times when I can identify with any of the previous spots on the emotional life outlook spectrum.  I’m all over the map from day to day, hour to hour but I’m in recovery. I…

A New Radiance | The Christmas Story

“And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.  And an angel of the Lord appeared to them and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with great fear. And the angel said to them, ‘Fear not, for behold, I…

Stuck In The Middle

For many of us we have this idea of the Divine as an old man sitting somewhere high in the Heavens getting ready to judge us. Or God is a man with a long white beard on a throne on the clouds behind high walls and pearly gates. He is on high. Perhaps God is…

Bah Humbug Starbucks

Once again, Christians are more concerned with what someone else is doing rather than what they are doing as a community of people who should be changing the world with their actions. Instead the supreme desire at the present is for Starbucks to bring the message of Christmas because nothing preaches Christmas like a snowman on a $5…

Evangelism With Heaven or Hell | Foundation Built on Speculation

Thanks to the wonderful world of social media, I am almost constantly reminded of my need for Jesus, but not in an encouraging method, but one of the most detrimental methods of evangelism. You’ve probably seen the videos of an interviewer talking with random people on the street and asking them a series of strategic questions….

A Few Thoughts & A Letter To Phil Robertson | Duck Dynasty | Conversation

Seeing that everyone else in the Christian community has posted their thoughts, the vast majority being “outraged” I STAND WITH PHIL! hoopla, I wanted to offer a few thoughts/questions before people get crazy and start “preaching” via Facebook and really do some damage to the world’s perspective on the Christian community and I also wanted…

Never Too Late

I often ask myself, “Is what I’m doing helping the world?  Is it helping others? Is it bringing people to have abetter life in some way?” For the last year, well 10 months which isn’t technically a year, but close enough, I have been on the job hunt.  I’ve sent out dozens of resumes, filled…

Are You Choosing To Fall?

It’s a simple question that can range across the board: How Much? When this question popped into my mind in the early morning hours it wasn’t about money, or time, or anything with a risk attached to it.  I asked myself, “How much?” because I am pondering how much I love Christ.  How much I…

To Dream or Not To Dream

Here’s the question – what is you dream? I’m posing this query because I want to know what it is you want to do with your life more than anything. And please, don’t give me the good ole cliche response. Let’s hear your heart. And the follow up… Are you doing it? If “yes.” Tell…

A Beautiful Truth

A little thought for today. Do we fail to do more, live up to our “potential”, pursue what our soul cries out for, because we don’t allow ourselves to view the world, which includes ourself, as God sees? I think so. For me, it’s my own self doubt and fear of failure that causes me…

Needed Rest

Today, I’m sick. I don’t get sick very often so this feeling is not welcomed. There isn’t anything I want to do more than sleep. I just want to rest and let my body recouperate and heal. I wonder if we ever realize when our spirit is telling us that it needs time to heal?…

Sailing or Adrift At Sea?

There is one thing I look forward to on Tuesday nights – getting the kids to bed and sitting down to watch The Biggest Loser.  Of course I love to see the transformations, the weight loss, the victories and the defeats, but still one thing trumps all of those… I love to see the trainers…
