Two Occasions

https://youtu.be/6vr9a46ZZ18   God is an infinite and  all powerful being. He is far too big and complex for any mind to fully understand, so it would be arrogant of anyone, including me, to say they know the mind of God. We cannot fully comprehend Him, we can only know what God has revealed.  Here is … Continue reading Two Occasions

Passion & Purpose

I haven't completely figured out the official cutoffs, but it's generally accepted that I am a late Generation X'er. There are many things that differentiate us from other generations but I believe one of the greatest differences is that we are a passion driven generation. Before us, the Baby Boomers and the Silent Generations were … Continue reading Passion & Purpose

I Wanna Be Down

https://youtu.be/PzpLkcfBe-A Everybody wants a hook up nowadays. Internet stars seem to be born every minute, and everyone becoming an entrepreneur or building a brand. One of the most effective ways to market yourself in this climate is to hitch yourself to a big name, so you can be associated with a known figure. The right … Continue reading I Wanna Be Down

Two Things That Make Ministry Hard

The three words I have often uttered to describe where I am in my ministerial career: "ministry is hard". Lately, I'm coming to learn that these words may actually be "full of it". While it is true, for me at least, the ministry was not a career move. I never chose ministry: ministry chose me. … Continue reading Two Things That Make Ministry Hard

Character: More or Less

So .... Twitter has announced that, effective immediately, they are expanding their character limits by two times. In other words, instead of a 140 characters limit, it has been bumped up to 280 characters. I must admit, as a content creator I LOVE this new expanded freedom! There are thoughts I want to share, but … Continue reading Character: More or Less

True Colors

Last month, I shared a sermon series about generosity; and as I was preparing for the last sermon, something in the scripture hit me hard in my chest. In 2 Corinthians 8, The Apostle Paul was describing the generosity of the churches in Macedonia. There was a great need and the apostles were receiving relief … Continue reading True Colors

Beneath Our Deepest Fears

It's been said that dreams reveal our subconscious: all the stuff we don't realize we're thinking. As a kid (and a few times as an adult) I would experience the terror of a recurring theme in my dreams. Something would happen and I would try to speak, only to realize nothing was coming out. I … Continue reading Beneath Our Deepest Fears

The Art of Moving On

It's been said, time and again, that everything that has a beginning has an end; yet we tend to always be surprised when relationships end. Excluding death, people will end relationships for any variety of reasons. Some legitimate, others ... not so much. As an introvert, I tend to be somewhat of a loner, but … Continue reading The Art of Moving On

Purpose Creates Passion

I'm not one to believe that this world is the product of chance. You and I are not accidents, but we are the product of divine purpose, because anything created has a reason for its existence. Simply put, purpose is the reason for which something was created or done, and even though we can't always … Continue reading Purpose Creates Passion

Thriller: An Argument Of Success

At over 32 million units sold, Michael Jackson's Thriller is by far the most successful recording in history. I just want that to sink in; after 35 years, no other record has sold more than this instant classic. It is the epitome of recorded music success, but at what point do we determine that it … Continue reading Thriller: An Argument Of Success
