  • Unfinished Business

    07/7/2017 When I was a kid, I liked going to the store with my mom. And on several occasions, I would coax her into buying me a model airplane or a model car; something like that. And I couldn't wait to get home, and as soon as I did, I'd start working on that model. But so often with me, about halfway through I'd get bored and I'd lose interest. Isn’t it great to know that God never loses interest in us? Continue reading…

  • Running the Race

    07/6/2017 In the book of Hebrews, God compares the Christian life to a marathon race. Now if you have ever been involved in a race like that, you know that appropriate dress is a must.

    07/3/2017 I heard a story about a skydiving instructor as he was teaching his class of rookies. One of the rookies asked, “Hey, if our chutes don’t open, how long do we have until we hit the ground?” The instructor answered, “You have the rest of your life.” Continue reading…

  • Faith and Praise

    06/30/2017 I hate waiting, don't you? Waiting can get us all stressed out and frustrated. And when we wait, and wait, and WAIT for God to work and answer our prayers, it's easy to start thinking that God really doesn't care. Continue reading…

  • Enough is Enough

    06/29/2017 I am a huge Rocky Balboa fan. That character inspires me to keep going, no matter the odds that might be against me. Now in one of my favorite Rocky movies, Rocky II, Apollo Creed was beating him to death and he had knocked him down two times in the first two rounds. It really looked like the defeat was just right around the corner for Rocky. Continue reading…
