Remembrance

"But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you."  (John 14:26, ESV) Sitting on the cold tile floor of my residence hall, tears streaming down my face, I was at a loss for...

Stored UP!

“I have stored up your word in my heart, that I might not sin against you.” (Psalms 119:11, ESV) I remember arriving at a swim meet one morning to travel the 20-ish miles from Schofield Barracks Army Base to Honolulu. My Dad and I were both excited to see how I would match up against... Continue Reading →

What Would You Run Toward?

“And he left the oxen and ran after Elijah”  (1 Kings 19:20, ESV)? Elijah had just put his cloak upon Elisha, and it must have taken him a moment for what had happened to sink in. When I am focused intently on my work, I get in a zone—when someone approaches me unnoticed I am likely... Continue Reading →

Plausible Arguments

“To reach all the riches of full assurance of understanding and the knowledge of God's mystery, which is Christ, in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. I say this in order that no one may delude you with plausible arguments" (Colossians‬ ‭2:2-4‬ ‭ESV‬‬). The first thing that drew my attention to... Continue Reading →

For A Season

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, ESV) There was a time in my life where, when things didn’t go my way, I defaulted to self-pity, and victim mentality. If I’m not careful, I still do sometimes. We are all wired differently and respond to the... Continue Reading →

Dead or Alive

“For the death he died he died to sin, once for all, but the life he lives he lives to God. So you also must consider yourselves dead to sin and alive to God in Christ Jesus.”  (Romans 6:10-11, ESV) How should we deal with sin in our lives? Or perhaps even more to the point,... Continue Reading →

Eyes

“Your eye is the lamp of your body. When your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light, but when it is bad, your body is full of darkness.” Luke 11:34 ESV If you have read my blog for even a short while you will know that I tend to avoid entangling it... Continue Reading →

Stepping Out

Have you ever done something that was totally out of character for you because you experienced something and were "caught up in the moment?" Or have you missed out on a "now" opportunity because your mind was focused on either the past or the future? Sometimes getting caught up in the moment can be a... Continue Reading →

The Throne of Grace

“Since then we have a great high priest who has passed through the heavens, Jesus, the Son of God, let us hold fast our confession. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without... Continue Reading →

Do Right

"So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin" (James 4:17 ESV) As a young boy I imagine that I was a lot like most young boys. I find it funny how I never really heard what my parents told me to do, but I always seemed... Continue Reading →
