Temptation is a universal battle. We all know what it is like to engage in that conflict. I learned a lesson recently that will help. You don’t want to do stupid things in life but the one advantage to making a lot of mistakes is that you learn a lot of lessons. I just learned […]
Motivation. We always need more. Here is where I found some extra motivation this morning. I was tired. I had worked a couple long days. My Spartan Race and Warrior Dash were behind me. I definitely didn’t feel like working out. It was a perfect storm for staying on the couch. Dreading my workout, I […]
Recently, I wrote about the fact that excuses suck and followers of Jesus need to live better lives. God has given us all the resources that we need to do so. You can catch up here. In the post, I referenced 1 Corinthians 3:3 and 2 Peter 1:3 which declare that we are not like […]

Every time that another social tremor rumbles across our world, confusion, fear and frustration come pouring out. My concern is always “what should my response be” or […]
I’ve learned this lesson on growing before, but I often have to relearn the same lessons. Does that ever happen to you? Good. I hate being the only one. I’ve been struggling lately with feelings of discouragement, failure and frustration. It’s a battle that I have to often fight and sometimes I don’t fight very […]
Spiritual disciplines are essential to your walk with God. Physical fitness requires physical exercise. Spiritual fitness requires spiritual exercise. Spiritual disciplines are training for a close walk with Jesus. Warning: You may be neglecting the most important spiritual discipline. People have produced a variety of lists of spiritual disciplines over the years as they have […]
