Music, Missions and Gardening

Stemming from work I did with my dad growing up and the small garden he and I maintained, I’ve decided that all that work wasn’t such a bad thing and I actually enjoyed it after all. So, a few years ago I decided to start up my own garden. The first couple of years, though, …

Thirsty Thursday – March 7, 2013

For Those Who Thirst for God’s Word God is not done with you. He’s not. When you accepted Christ that was not the end, but the beginning of something more. While all your sins were forgiven and God’s grace rained down on you in that very moment you accepted Christ, a process began in you …

Failure. [pullquote align=”left|center|right” textalign=”left|center|right” width=”30%”]While all failure hurts, there is one that I would argue hurts more than all of them combined: failing God.[/pullquote] We’re all afraid of that word, aren’t we? And it’s not just the word that’s scary. It’s the whole bundle that comes with that word. It’s the gut wrenching impact that …

Monday Cry Out – Labor in Vain or for Blessings?

So, my wife and I are trying to instill a good work ethic in our oldest daughter, who is six. Like most six year olds, though, she would rather play. We’ve found that teaching her to work for something if she doesn’t get a reward immediately after completing the task is nearly in vain. She …

Through the Darkness

So, getting married and having children has been one of the greatest blessings in my life, and not just because I have an awesome wife and two great kids (although they are!). My family constantly reveals some of the most basic truths about God, that I’ve always known, but never really grasped or applied to …
