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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

That Jesus. What a trip!

Matthew 14:24-31 24 Meanwhile, the disciples were in trouble far away from land, for a strong wind had risen, and they were fighting heavy waves. 25 About three o’clock in the morning Jesus came toward them, walking on the water. 26 When the disciples saw him walking on the water, they were terrified.
