An Excellent Wife

An Excellent Wife

Today is my twenty-second wedding anniversary. I am married to the most wonderful woman, and there is no one I would choose to be around than her. Her love for Jesus supersedes everything else in her life. As a wife, mother, and school teacher she strives to glorify...

Transformed by the Power of God

Transformed by the Power of God

Have you ever talked to someone whose life has been saved by a first responder? There is something different than the ordinary person. They have a new appreciation for life and sincere gratitude for the people who saved them. It is often hard to fully understand how...

Be a Voice for the Voiceless

Be a Voice for the Voiceless

‭‭It’s hard to sift through the noise to hear what is important. So many people are shouting their opinions and crying foul over how they have been offended and wronged. There is so much of it; we have become deaf to it all. Sadly, there is a group of people who have...

Get Up and Get Going

Get Up and Get Going

Have you ever sat and marveled at a talented person? Everything they touch seems to turn to gold. They have multiple projects going on at once, and new opportunities seem to come their way every day. You sit there and wish you could live a life like that. Maybe you...

Overflowing with Hope

Overflowing with Hope

Where I live has been inundated with rain. That hasn’t been the case for the last decade as we suffered through a severe drought. As I type this, I am looking at a creek that is overflowing with swift flowing water. The last time I was here, it was completely dry. Our...

Are You Ready

Are You Ready

Have you ever watched one of those doomsday shows? They are usually about people who are preparing for Armageddon to happen and they are storing up all of the supplies and building shelters. They even have a name; “Preppers.” As a Christian, we don’t need to go to...

What Are You Living For

What Are You Living For

What gets you out of bed in the morning? Is it your job? Maybe, it’s an obligation like getting the kids ready for school? Have you ever asked yourself what you are living for? If we call ourselves a Christian, the Apostle Paul tells us that whether we live or die, we...

Unlikely Heroes

Unlikely Heroes

Much is written about King David and his mighty men’s exploits. David conquered Goliath, other ones took on a thousand men by themselves and defeated them, others took on a bear. We look up to these men but did you know that they didn’t start that way. These men came...

A Harvest of Peace and Delight

A Harvest of Peace and Delight

There are very few things that are more disconcerting than a child that acts out in public. Whether they are throwing a tantrum to get what they want or trying to embarrass their parents to get them to do something, it makes everyone uncomfortable. As a Christian, we...

The Debt of Love

The Debt of Love

The average American owes $2300 in credit card debt. That is taking all of the credit card debt and dividing it by the number of people. In reality, most people owe a lot more than that because not everyone has a credit card. I know a lot of you don’t live in the...

Cascaded with Mercy

Cascaded with Mercy

‭‭Have you heard the saying “Cheaters never prosper?” You parents may have told you that when you were a child because one of the kids on your block wasn’t playing fair. There is some truth to that wisdom. Sinners don’t prosper if they continue to conceal what they...

Keep the Main Thing the Main Thing

Keep the Main Thing the Main Thing

‭‭Are you a person that is easily distracted? Do you feel a little lost when it comes to the direction of your life? Most of us have struggled with those. When we look for help in those areas, people will tell us we need to focus and have a plan, which leaves us in...

Tips for the Road Ahead

Tips for the Road Ahead

The beautiful highway one in California runs just outside my office. You can take it just north of Santa Barbara all the way up to San Francisco, and it will weave you along some of the most beautiful coastline in the world. You have to be careful and heed signs that...

Keeping the Blade Sharp

Keeping the Blade Sharp

There is a fish market near where I live. Every once in a while we will take the kids down to the port to watch the fishermen bring in their catch and deliver it to the market. It is then given to a group of butchers who prepare the fish for restaurants and markets....

No Need to Prove Yourself

No Need to Prove Yourself

It seems like everyone is always trying to impress those around them. Whether it be on Facebook or in person, we like to tell people all of our good exploits. Sadly, many Christians do the same thing. We feel like we need to show God that we deserve his love....
