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 [...]

Make The Most of Life

Today’s post probably isn’t going to be long but I was sitting here praying and had iTunes Radio on worship music and a song came on that I may have heard once before. The words just really hit me this morning. We need to worry less abut what we don’t have, less about our jobs [...]

Spiritual Fitness and Why I’m Blogging Again?

So I finished Ecclesiastes yesterday and don’t know what book is next. Today I wanted to just get up and spend some time on prayer listening for God to speak. I like just sitting praying to him and listening for him. Sometimes he speaks and sometimes he doesn’t – or I don’t hear him – [...]

How Does It All End? What’s The Final Point?

That’s the whole story. Here now is my final conclusion: Fear God and obey his commands, for this is everyone’s duty. God will judge us for everything we do, including every secret thing, whether good or bad. (Ecclesiastes 12:13, 14 NLT) These are the final words of the book of Ecclesiastes. Solomon spends the first [...]

Work Hard All Day Long

There has been a lot in Ecclesiastes about work and finding joy – and that’s been good for me as I struggle with that sometimes. There are things I love about my job – like dealing with people, getting the most out of my team, helping them to succeed and grow. There are also things [...]

Are You A Dull Tool?

Chapter 10 of Ecclesiastes sees Solomon handing out some of his wisdom. As I was reading this is couldn’t help but think of the book of Proverbs as much if this chapter reads like the advice in that book. There is a constant theme here though – don’t be a fool. Solomon spends a lot [...]

Enjoy Life With Your Wife

I have been blessed to be married for 20 years. I have been with my bride for 25 years after we met in college the day we moved in our freshman year. We have had good times, bad times and great times and through it all God has been there with us. We have learned [...]

It’s Not In Our Control

No one can control the wind or lock it in a box. No one has any say-so regarding the day of death. No one can stop a battle in its tracks. No one who does evil can be saved by evil. (Ecclesiastes 8:8 MSG) Once again Solomon comes back to these points – there are [...]

Wisdom or Opinion

Advice. Opinions. Wisdom. One of these things is not like the other, one of these things just doesn’t belong! Sure they look similar, but they aren’t. You see, anyone can give advice or an opinion on something. Those are both based on what we think, how we feel, and a lot of times they are [...]
