A favorite saying of my wife and I is “It’s all in season.” What we mean by that is that life changes all the time. With every change in life you enter a different season. Perhaps you can’t do the things you used to do, perhaps you’ve finished an education, perhaps you have changed a career. All of those things and many more represent seasons in our lives and God is there with us…
Have you ever been asked a question that starts with “Did you remember…”? I know that I have, my wife says not so much, but perhaps that’s because she is the one asking me those questions… Remembering is an important concept in my household. I have to remember to take all the things I need with me to work and to do my jobs around the house. My boys have to remember to bring home their homework and do their chores. In fact, remembering is so important that we even have these little sticky-notes stuck in strategic places around the house for my kids so that they don’t forget… to remember… I think it also helps to save my wife’s voice…
Thanks to Bryan from Chief of the Least for showing me this video!
To say I have a couple of Bibles is an understatement… We truly do not appreciate what we hold in our hands until we see the reactions of someone that can’t get their hands on a Bible so easily…
Grace & Peace,
Here’s an awesome song by Fee called ‘Send Me Out’. It’s an awesome song that a good friend of mine reminded me of! Check out his blog here!
Prayer should be central to the life of all Christians, I am a huge believer in the power of prayer! Not only should prayer be central to the life of Christians, it should also be central to the life of the church both globally and locally. It saddens me to see the church sliding away from the model of prayer given to us by the early church.
‘What king, going to make war against another king, sitteth not down first, and consulteth whether he be able with ten thousand to meet him that cometh against him with twenty thousand? Or else, while the other is yet a great way off, he sendeth an ambassage, and desireth conditions of peace.’ Luke 14:31–32
I have often told my wife that I have a box in the back of my head. If I am given something to think about that I need to ponder over before coming to a conclusion or decision I say that I will drop it in my box and let it process. Weird huh? Weird, but true. Then a day or so later some thought will come to me and I will know what to do without having to have poured any real energy into thinking about it. Sounds bizarre but has been strangely effective over the years. Unfortunately I have another box and in this box I have put God, and I need to get Him out!
All a man’s ways seem innocent to him, but motives are weighed by the LORD. Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed. (Pro 16:2-3 NIV)
Here’s an awesome song by Stellar Kart called ‘Hold On’. It’s pretty awesome!
