Trading Fear for Trust

For almost 8 years, I got up every weekday and went to the same building, parked in the same area, and made the same walk in, around, and out of that building. For 6 and a half of those years, I sat at the same desk. Monday through Friday held very little adventure, at least during […]

Passion Without Cubicles

Having been freed from employment recently, I’ve had some extra time to browse around the internet. One of the things that has struck me is how many people out there find passion and fulfillment in a variety of things. We get blinded by our own lives, worries, stresses, and responsibilities and forget what it is […]

Starting Monday

Browse through your favorite app store and you will find hundreds, perhaps thousands, of app based around productivity. Most people have a desire to be more productive. We all want to get more done in less time. As a result, we download calendar apps, task manager apps, fitness app, and apps for tracking just about everything […]

The Choice to Fear

As soon as I put it out there that I want to be a writer, and I am going to make a serious attempt and making a living writing, the enemy  starts trying to convince me what a terrible idea it is. Can I seriously believe that I can replace my job income with a writing income? […]

The Layoff

The journey begins. I started this blog with the idea that I could one day make a living writing. I would sit in my cubicle imagining a day when I could work from home, and have all the time in the world to focus on doing one thing really well. Here I am now, sitting at home, typing away, […]

New Adventures

It’s always exciting to set out on a new adventure. It could be literal adventure; packing up your car and heading out west, on your way to a ski trip or rafting excursion. Or maybe it’s that moment when your ride pulls away and you stand there staring at the entrance to the Appalachian Trail. […]

Creation

Below is an excerpt from a narrative I wrote for First Baptist Church of St. Petersburg Holy Week event, Experience the Story, a unique, exciting, and immersive multimedia experience of GOD’s interaction with the world.  Before there was anything, there was nothing. That’s not exactly true. Before there was anything, there was God.That’s not completely true. Before […]

Sin

Below is an excerpt from a narrative I wrote for First Baptist Church of St. Petersburg Holy Week event, Experience the Story, a unique, exciting, and immersive multimedia experience of GOD’s interaction with the world.  In that moment, God judged man. In that moment, humans, for the first time, chose to be lord over their own life, […]

Promise

  Below is an excerpt from a narrative I wrote for First Baptist Church of St. Petersburg Holy Week event, Experience the Story, a unique, exciting, and immersive multimedia experience of GOD’s interaction with the world.  We all fall short. We are all broken. And there is only one way to get unbroken. Isaiah 25:6-8 (NLT) […]

LESS is MORE

Originally posted on Blake or Amanda Clark:
A life of “LESS” can lead to a “MORE” life in Christ.  It’s hard not to want more.  More money.  More talent.  More prestige. More power.  More influence.  Or more of tangible things… More books.  More gas mileage.  More hourly pay.  More furniture.  More DVD’s.  More music.  More…

More Spurgeon Genius

from 2 Timothy 1:9 “Who hath saved us, and called us with an holy calling.” Charles Spurgeon writes, The apostle uses the perfect tense and says, “Who hath saved us.” Believers in Christ Jesus are saved. They are not looked upon as persons who are in a hopeful state, and may ultimately be saved, but […]

Christian Rhetoric

The link below is to a post written by a friend of mine.  I thought it would be good to share with you all because it is a good reminder to follow what Jesus teaches. It reminds us that we, as Christians, are not called to go out into the world to judge it, condemn […]
