posiFocus

You’ve seen me link to a few posts on posiFocus over the last few months. It is a site started by a couple friends, faith brothers if you will, to focus on all the positive things happening in this world. It is still very much in its infancy, but after a few recent posts, it […]

I Pity the Fool

Mr. T was an extremely spiritual man. He always thought of others before himself and truly lived out the commandment, “love your neighbor as yourself.” That must have been why he pitied fools so often. Or maybe he was just a genius and felt bad for the rest of us lesser intelligent human beings. We […]

Perseverance

And now a message from Charles Spurgeon… Perseverance is the badge of true saints. The Christian life is not a beginning only in the ways of God, but also a continuance in the same as long as life lasts. It is with a Christian as it was with the great Napoleon: he said, “Conquest has […]

Who do you say I am?

Mark 8:29 (NLT) Then he asked them, “But who do you say I am?” Peter replied, “You are the Messiah.” Jesus asked this question to his disciples and Peter nailed it. Jesus has been asking me this question lately, and I have had a hard time answering. First off, there are two ways you could […]

Clarity in the Clouds

A couple weeks ago I was sitting in church and as the pastor was talking, these words came out of his mouth, “Resurrection simply cannot happen to those who aren’t dead first.” That little statement shook me from my Sunday morning daze. It broke through the cloud of selfish thoughts that tried to seperate me […]

Playing it safe

Below is an excerpt from the devotional I wrote for our youth’s group winter retreat a few weeks ago. The theme of the weekend was ‘Reckless’ and was based of the song with the same title by Jeremy Camp. … In the song, we hear the lyrics: Everytime I try to play it safe Holding […]

Dedication and Consistency

I had this idea that I would be able to continue to post meaningful content for years as long as I was dedicated and consistent in my effort. After only 5 or 6 months I have now found it difficult to maintain the output of information that I wanted to create. Part of it is […]

That one question

As a Christ follower, I sometimes come across people who are…less than accepting of my beliefs. Believe it or not, there are some people out that who are against Christianity and who believe it is a bunch of B.S. I know, I was surprised too. Actually, a good part of 70% of the world has […]

Trusting God

Psalms 106:24 (NLT) The people refused to enter the pleasant land, for they wouldn’t believe his promise to care for them. We do we have such a hard time trusting God? The Israelites were literally given daily bread from God, and yet they still couldn’t trust him to provide for them. Everyday, we try to control […]
