Continuing To Be Taught

I haven’t been blogging as regularly lately but that doesn’t mean I haven’t continued in my daily time with God. I continue to spend time each morning reading and praying. Lately it has been more prayer which is not a bad thing at all. God continues to reveal things to me each day – through [...]

Fully Rely on God

What do you put your hope and trust in? Is it people, things, money , your job, food, yourself? One of the things that I have been reminded of recently is how critical it is for us to understand that there is only one thing that we can put our hope and trust in that [...]

A Difficult Road

Yesterday’s post was a hard one. But it was also a necessary one. As I continue to seek God and long to be more like him there are things that have to be done and things that have to change. Yesterday was one of those days. I looked back at that post/prayer today – because [...]

Happy New Year

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged anything so I figured I’d take a minute and just blog about where I’ve been and where I am. I took some time off over the Christmas break but am back at my routine now. I’ve somewhat camped in Hebrews 12 for a few days now and don’t [...]

Please Share

Today’s reading was Hebrews chapter 5. Quite honestly, there wasn’t something that jumped out at me in the readings but I felt that God wanted me to try something different today. If you have been reading along with me or reading my thoughts I’d love to know what God is doing in your life or [...]

Walk In The Light Today

Today’s reading is 1 John chapter two. Unfortunately, while there is a lot there, nothing is coming to me to flow out on here. I would encourage you to sit with it today and to sit with God today. Look for him on your drive to and from work, in the interactions you have with [...]

Light or Dark?

This week I am going to read through the book of 1 john. It’s a book I’ve read quote a few times in the last year and keep coming back to. I picked it for a few reasons: 1) I like it 2) it’s short – 5 chapters one for each day this week and [...]

Self Examination

Let me begin by saying that this is NOT a post about me touching myself in private places (sorry, I know that may be crass but I figured I’d get that cleared up for anyone that found this post from a Google search). If you’ve been reading my sporadic updates over the last few months [...]

Reassuring…But Frightening

Reading through Francis Chan’s book “Forgotten God” today at lunch I was drawn to these verses: And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever—the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you [...]

Giving a Double Portion

I’m currently reading through 1 Samuel in my yearly reading plan (which was supposed to end in January).  The opening of 1 Samuel struck a chord with me.  It reads: 1 There was a certain man from Ramathaim, a Zuphitet from the hill country of Ephraim, whose name was Elkanah son of Jeroham, the son [...]
