To Forgive or Not To Forgive

To Forgive or Not To Forgive was originally published on the Radius Church blog on November 16, 2016. That’s the question some of us are faced with on a constant basis. Just to get this out of the way early on, Jesus was REALLY serious about forgiveness. Forgiveness is essential. Forgiveness is love. Forgiveness is […]

Lost and Found

Lost and Found was originally posted on the Radius Church Blog on November 9, 2016. In the Summer of 1999, Stephanie and I were camp counselors. Once every two weeks the camp took a field trip to a theme park. One particular trip was to Disney World. We were excited to get to hang out together […]

The Opposite of Fear

The Opposite of Fear was originally posted on the Radius Church Blog on October 26, 2016. What do you fear? Cockroaches? Yuck. Spiders? Kinda. Clowns? Definitely. The election? A little bit. Rough seas while on some cheap “all natural” Dramamine? Oh yeah! Rejection? Ridicule? Confrontation? Yes x 3 = Me But the Bible says, Jesus […]

Breaking Dawn

Breaking Dawn was originally posted on the Radius Church Blog. I’m imagining what it must have been like for Joseph. Here he is leading his family to the town of his ancestors, his pregnant wife is about to give birth. I can imagine him leading the donkey along the path to Bethlehem. Mary is sitting on […]

Dark Times

  Dark Times was originally posted on the Radius Church blog. We live in a fast food society. When we want food, we get food. If we have to wait for it longer than we expect, we’ve got problems. In fact, some companies even promise free food if they can’t deliver in the promised time-frame. […]

Know Yourself

  To know God is to know yourself. When I went of to college, I entered a whole new realm. It would be the first time I’d been away from home for more than a couple of months. It would be the first time I really had to take care of myself. No parents. No […]

The Waiting Dead

180 minutes. That’s what the sign said above the new ride at the amusement park. 3 hours! And people kept getting in line. “Well, it’s what we came here to do.” We said. We got in line and waited. We looked around at all the people. We waited. We studied the architecture of the exterior […]

Cubicle Required?

I’m at that point now; that point when I’ve collected my last severance check and the financial faucet has been turned off. I still have money coming in from a few other sources, but it won’t be enough to sustain us for very long. I thought I would be further along with finding other opportunities. […]

It’s not my thing

First off, be careful what you pray for. I prayed that God would give me the opportunity to write, and now I am writing more than I have ever written. I’m writing multiple blog posts a day for multiple people/organizations. I’ve got more to write than I have time to write. And so far, I’m […]

Another Answered Prayer

This will be a short post. As I mentioned last week, I started my journey as a tech blogger with AndroidGuys a little over a week ago. Currently, I am focused on writing about smartwatches and wearables on their site, SmarterWatching. The position is unpaid, but great for experience, and exposure. On Friday, I was […]

And, We’re Off

To say life has been interesting over the past 3-6 months would be an understatement. In that time, we have helped start a church, our son went to sleep-away camp for the first time, I was laid off, and now — well, now is what this blog is all about. Things have started happening over […]

Coincidental Blessings

A couple of weeks ago, in my post covering My Top 9 Opportunities, I listed one of them as ‘Part-Time Office Work.’ This past Tuesday, I met with the owner of the local company to find out more about what he needed. My original thought was that they needed an assistant; someone to help streamline […]

The Big Day

I’m taking a break from the weekly self-absorbed, reflective blog post to talk about a big day that’s is soon to be upon us. This coming Sunday, two of my closest friends will officially launch the new church in St. Pete that God has called them to start. I’m sure, for them, they are dealing with […]

My Top 9 Opportunities

When I re-defined what this blog was to be about back in July, I wanted to make it a place where I could track my progress as a freelance writer. So far, I’ve talked mostly about the spiritual and emotional ups and downs of being laid off and facing the mountain that I perceive is […]
