I have had more jobs than the average person. Honestly, I’ve had more jobs than 10 average people put together, and that’s a modest guesstimation. Needless to say, all of those jobs started with an application process. I’ve filled out my contact info, identification numbers, and employment history so many times that I have my … More Who?


  Perception is a powerful thing. When you perceive a thing that is not the way God perceives it, you are in trouble! For a long time, I perceived growth in God and the status of my relationship with him as either growing or staying still. Then, if you are knowingly living in sin, that’s … More RIGHT MOTION


It has been a crazy couple of weeks! There have been ample opportunities to take things into my own hands, to live by what I see and feel, and to take back control of my life. But the opportunities for thanksgiving, for trusting God, and for living by faith have been far greater! The perspective … More Expressive

Look of Love

Looking across the filled room, she noticed that no one was interested in what the speaker had to say. Some looked blank, while others were obviously on their phones. There were even some who looked asleep with their eyes open. She thought, “How am I the only one who wants to hear this? Why are … More Look of Love

Zero tolerance

What are we no longer going to tolerate? Well you tell me. I am no longer going to tolerate the way I give in to menial fleshly desires like eating junk food and watching too much Hallmark.You may say that’s a little overboard or extreme and that’s fine.

I’m just not there yet. You are way too spiritual for me. I’m glad that works for you, but I’m good where I’m at. Those just aren’t my convictions. The list of responses I’ve heard from Christians goes on when having discussions about lifestyle. With that in mind, I want to talk about how easy … More Ponder

Live it

We’ve talked about our words and how important and powerful our words are. It’s one thing to say something and another thing to believe what you’re saying. Believing what you are saying is made evident in your actions. We’ve talked about action in reference to self-discipline, now I’d like to attach it to lifestyle. Living … More Live it

Stay Strong

I must ask for your forgiveness for my lack of posts recently. Simply put I allowed weariness to settle in me. No excuses, just improvements! I attended #Jesus17 over the weekend and am quite refreshed. Some of what we’ll discuss this week will be what was imparted in that time. Because of the challenge of … More Stay Strong


I will divert from the topic of self-discipline and focus on faith this week. Apparently, the east coast of the United States is in a tizzy over Hurricane Irma. A storm. Who’s afraid of this storm? Many, it seems. I understand why people who don’t have the hope of eternal life would. But why would … More Diversion

Taking Action

I have to be transparent with you all and let you know the challenges I’ve had with self-discipline this week. Did you know that when you declare a thing, there may be opportunity for great opposition? Well, it’s true. Just when you receive a thing from the Lord and the devil hears about it, he’s … More Taking Action
