Divine Gentleness

June 14, 2021

When you think of the Sovereign God who created the heavens and the earth and Who rules all things by His power and for His glory, you may not be prone to think of His gentleness. His gentle side, however, points to a source of great blessing for us and a mark to which He […]

Good Boasting

June 7, 2021

Nobody likes to hear someone brag. It’s quite sickening to be around someone who always takes the conversation to their accomplishments and acquisitions. There is something good about which to boast however, when you boast of the Lord Jesus Christ and His accomplishment. Galatians 6:14 (ESV) — 14 But far be it from me to […]

The Trap Of Fear

May 31, 2021

Have you ever noticed how enticing fear can be? Just watch the “teaser” they give in the midst of the news report before they go to a break. You will be given a snippet of a story that induces a bit of fear because the producers know you will stay tuned because there is something […]

Consistent and Persistent

May 24, 2021

It’s pretty easy to see the value in being persistent in life. Too many people are not tenacious in the way they approach life and wonder why good things seem to never come their way. Of course, there are other factors which play into every circumstance in life but we’d all agree that if we […]

Joy and Enthusiasm

May 17, 2021

When is the last time you thought about approaching your day with joy and enthusiasm?  We are prone to express joy and enthusiasm when things go according to plan, when we accomplish our goals, or feel good. God expects us to approach life and serve Him with joy and enthusiasm. Psalms 100:2 (ESV) Serve the […]

May 10, 2021

Sometimes the dog-eat-dog world of life brings us to the point of exhaustion, and we just want to sit back and be served. And some people approach serving the Lord Jesus Christ in that manner. People shop for a church as they would shop for a car, looking for the best deal. And they wonder […]

The Conundrum Of Clutter

May 3, 2021

It’s a rarity to find a person who does not have any clutter, the truth of the matter is we are a society that is given to much clutter. Consider how few garages are actually used to park cars or the number of storage units rented because people don’t want to deal with the clutter […]

Heart To Heart

April 26, 2021

What if God took you aside to have a little heart to heart chat and in that time together, He requested you in a fully honest and open way, let Him know what was your heart’s desire above all things, what would you say? First of all know that you don’t have to dream of […]

From Prehab to Rehab

April 19, 2021

As I was reflecting upon my experience of two total knee replacements a couple of years ago and any advice I’d give to someone who is contemplating the surgery, I would summarize my approach as going from prehab to rehab. As I approached this surgery, I wanted to prepare as best I could so I […]

Sellout or Minimalist?

April 12, 2021

There’s a phenomenon that is overtaking endurance training known as “minimalist training.”  The advocates of minimalist training are quick to point out the typical endurance athlete over trains by thinking, “if some is good a lot is better.”  As a result, many, if not most, endurance athletes go to competitions in a state of being […]
