Love is…


Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.  It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs.  Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.  It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 I remembered I used these...

Dependence On The Lord


“His authority on earth allows us to dare to go to all the nations.  His authority in heaven gives us our only hope of success.  And His presence with us leaves no other choice.” – John Stott  Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me.  Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the...

The Calling…


…of Matthew
As Jesus went on from there, he saw a man named Matthew sitting at the tax collector’s booth. “Follow me,” he told him, and Matthew got up and followed him.
Matthew 9:9

On Christ the Rock I Stand

In every high and stormy gale, My...

Speedball is set up in a symmetrical field with bunkers and a flag in the middle.  Each team starts on opposite side.  The goal is to either bring the flag to the other side or tag (shoot) the other...

Lay down your life


This is a reflection from today’s devotion from Oswald Chamber’s Utmost for His Highest…. A while ago, I had this interesting thought…through the journey of seeking His Kingdom above everything else….I realized all my stuff is His.  I sat on my bed.  Looked over my bookshelves and told myself, ‘all the books belonged to Him.’  I...

Quote on sin


This is probably one of the best quotes I read for a long time…
“The sin underneath all sins is the lie that we cannot trust the love and grace of Jesus and that we must take matters into our own hands.
– Martin Luther
Learning to trust is much harder than learning to do.

The Holy Experiment


Looking back over my journey with Christ, there’s a point where it was liberating and refreshing when I realized that I can give my whole life to God and He can take control of everything. Surely, if we take a look, He is in control of everything.  After all, He is the one who created everything under the sun.  It is when my small mind realized that I do not have to fret nor do I...
