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 […]

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. […]

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 […]

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? […]

I am Peter

Hi. I’m Peter. OK, not really, but in many ways, I am like Peter. And so are you. Jesus replied,  “I tell you the truth, Peter—this very night, before the rooster crows, you will deny three times that you even know me.” “No!” Peter insisted. “Even if I have to die with you, I will […]

Who is your god?

People serve many gods. They serve gods of greed, power, lust, and gluttony. They serve gods of cars, houses,  and flat panel TVs. They serve gods of clothes, shoes, and purses. They serve gods of pornography and other sexual immoralities. In short, we find new gods to serve all the time. But there is only one God […]

Savage Race. Done.

On Saturday, I completed the Savage Race. We had a fantastic run. My team, the Elite Warriors, met up around 7:15am at our gym. From there we car-pooled to the event about an hour away. The land where the race was held was beautiful; large expanses of grass and hay dotted with lakes and swamp […]

Promises. Promises.

2 Peter 1: 3-4 3By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. 4And because of his glory and excellence, he has given […]

Do you need proof of heaven?

A few days ago I came across this article and was intrigued by the title. Heaven Is Real: A Doctor’s Experience With the Afterlife I fully intended to read it that day at work, but didn’t get around to it and so I put it off until another day. Today was that day. Here we […]

Stop. Thief!

C.S. Lewis said, “You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream.” I know. It’s probably his most profound quote, right? Of all the C.S. Lewis quotes out there, why choose something so amazingly obvious? Because it is the obvious stuff that we so often forget. As long as […]
