Cheap Grace

I started reading (listening) to The Cost of Discipleship by Dietrich Bonhoeffer tonight as I ran the vacuum across the floor. I've started this a few times but never made it past around 15 minutes. It may not be the best book to listen to while I run (I'll admit,...

Plan good

This is a voice of truth I'm thankful for right now. Do what's right. Let the results follow. Don’t those who plan evil go astray? Those who plan good receive loyalty and faithfulness. There is profit in hard work, but mere talk leads to poverty. Wealth is the crown...

The Mercy Tree

I listened to this song a few times on the way to work today. Can't get it out of my head, and I'm oh so thankful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hrgl9z3grKU

There is power in the blood.

Heard this at church today. Don't know where it came from but it's good. Blood is life. Sixty thousand miles of blood vessels link every living cell; even the blood vessels themselves are fed by blood vessels. Highways narrow down to one-lane roads, then bike paths,...

Tony Evans Week 3 Kingdom Man

God chooses to do most of what he does because of decisions we make. There is no man that has net his destiny without wandering through the wilderness. When you're a kingdom man, there is an inheritance to be claimed because there is a destiny to be fulfilled. You...

Kingdom Man by Tony Evans Week 2

God gave Adam a house. He told him to both garden it and guard it... Even before he knew he had an enemy. God created a lesser creature... Man... So that he could show what god can do with less that is committed to him than what he can do with a greater being in...

Kingdom Man by Tony Evans Week 1

The guys at our church are doing a little study with Tony Evans. I'm lot one for filling in a workbook that will just go on a shelf so my notes go here. The cry for kingdom men is coming from the culture, from men themselves, and from Almighty God. "Stand in the gap."...

When Inspiration Strikes

Last night was one of those rare nights where inspiration struck and wouldn't let me go. I've written before about how computer code is a bit of an art form for me, and last night, a canvas was dropped before me and a brush was stuck in my hand. Sometimes it's just a...

Interesting thing about fear that I’ve learned lately – it leaves you off balance and unsafe. The more you allow it to have hold the more off balance and unsafe you are. When you lean into that which you fear, you become balanced and safer and stronger.

Building Community, One Project at a Time

I've come to be a big believer in community during my years of being part of the Daily Audio Bible family. It's taken on a much deeper meaning to me - more than just friends, family, church, and  neighbors. I don't really know how I would describe it, but I now know...

The silent intervention of God

The thing I love about the book of Esther is that even though God's name is never mentioned, His intervention and care for his people is impossible to ignore. If you were one if the characters in the story, living it from the inside, you might have a hard time seeing...
