It’s quite common to show up for a group ride or workout and see someone who has not been present for a while and when you inquire about their absence they reply, “life gets in the way.”  Interpreted: “When it comes to the priorities of life, my wife, my children, or my job have a […]

What are you thinking?

March 15, 2021

One of the marks of the Bible being the inspired word of God is the fact that if man could have written the Bible, he wouldn’t have written it. Of course, if man would have written the Bible, there are enough facts, prophesies, etc. that there is no way man could have written the Bible. […]

Running On Empty

March 8, 2021

Most men will admit to it, some women will, but most all of us have in some way been running on empty.  You know the scene. You are driving and your gas gauge says empty and you look and figure it has a little space to go before it’s really empty so you keep going, […]

Overcoming Weariness

March 1, 2021

It’s a phenomenon how Christians take on responsibility and seem to find joy in serving the Lord, no matter how menial the task, then out of the blue they find what they are doing a weariness. It happens in all levels of Christian service, from those who help clean up to those who lead. It’s […]

Handing Over Everything To God

February 22, 2021

As you view the scene of darkness when the Lord Jesus Christ was on the cross, you hear Him cry, “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?”  However, before He dies, Luke records His words, “Father into Your hands I commit my spirit.” What a contrast!  Of course, during the time in which […]

Needed Interruptions

Proverbs 3:5–6 (ESV) — 5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. 6 In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. There are times when living by Proverbs 3:5&6 takes a great deal of faith to “trust in the Lord with […]

What is on your reading list?

January 25, 2021

It is good to have (or at least to begin) a list at this time of the year of books to read during the year. Do you have one, or at least in mind?  It’s been well said that leaders are readers, although it seems that with the onset of social media, people are filled […]

The Now Factor

January 18, 2021

Ever notice how many things we put off until “someday?”  “Someday, I’ll get in shape.”  “Someday, I’ll organize the garage.”  “Someday, I’ll spend more time with the kids.”  And the list goes on… If we are not careful, we live our lives in the SOMEDAY mode and never enjoy the present.
