Superman on Vacation

I just got back from vacation. During vacation I was on a ski-lift ride up a mountain and on my way up I stuck my hands out and flew like Superman…as best as I could.  So I had a weird thought…but every now and then when I feel the pressures to get things done or...

Wishing Stars and Ugly Scars

His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. (Revelation 1:16) “Ugh! I wish you’d go away!”  Some people yell at the TV, shouting warnings to characters in a movie or instructions to sports players. Me, I yell at the sun, pretty much every time I drive.  This star’s brightness can spark some of my darkest moments. You see, my eye is permanently...

Fully Surrendered

Before I go to bed I will often reflect on my day. I sit and think of how the day went, what happened, what took place, how were my actions or behavior. And God often shows me how controlling I am. I like things a certain way. I have a hard time giving things over...

Stay True to God

About a month ago, we were in the Book of Daniel with the youth group. Daniel is an amazing book to read. Of course, the pinnacle of Daniel’s life is in Daniel 6, when Daniel shows his faith in the lion’s den. However, only thinking of this moment in Daniel’s life does each of us...

Dying Love

“But many were amazed when they saw him.” (Isaiah 52:14) “Undying love” is the hallmark of many famous couples. Look at Romeo and Juliet. Wait… they both died. Okay, but you get my point.
