Defining Trust

Yesterday, I was blown away to find out that a fellow blogger quoted my writing on her site.  Please understand that it wasn’t the fact of using my words, although I was honored and so glad they spoke to her, it was the quote she used that got my attention.  (PS – Robin writes about a Courageous Heart here, go check it out!)  She quoted words about my grandfather’s suicide. “Life will be full of moments that can define you, […]

Why is Trust Important?

Welcome to Seeking Saturday:  2014 Edition 1 If TRUST is my word for 2014, I have to ask myself this question. Why is trust important? __________________________________________________________________________ This wind is howling outside.  It’s simply the cold front rolling in, but I can’t stop thinking about God.  He is at work and His work is mighty.  Like the wind, he is invisible, but you can hear Him and see His movements.  As C. S. Lewis said, “I believe in God as I […]

A Search for the Truth

I don’t have it all figured out, but I am searching as I continue my journey. I especially DO NOT want to preach. But I do know this… I’m tired of adjusting the truth… I want to be wise… “When the truth presents itself, the wise person sees the light, takes it in, and makes adjustments. The fool tries to adjust the truth so he does not have to adjust to it.” – Dr. Henry Cloud This isn’t a sermon […]

The Biggest Mistake Leaders Make

Earlier this week, I heard an online guru share the number of website views they have each month as a way to introduce themselves. It was an attempt to validate the scope of their leadership. My initial reaction was, holy cow, that’s a lot of influence. However, feelings of insufficiency immediately followed. For a guy who gets 10,000 views in a month, 1 million seemed incredible. I was quick to discredit my own opportunity for influence, but then I remembered when I first began blogging […]

Awake My Soul

The words “Awake my soul” were originally penned by a young man named David. Although they sound encouraging, they came from a most desolate place. David had been anointed the future king, given the promise of leading a people. But the current king was power-hungry and refused to surrender his throne. A young man in his twenties, David was on the run, fearing for his life. His only solitude was a small, secluded cave where he could hide from his enemies. It is […]

Though You May Stumble: My Rough Road to Fatherhood

“God cannot tempt to virtue as we do to vice. He wants us to learn to walk and must therefore take away His hand; and if only the will to walk is really there, He is pleased even with our stumbles.” ~ C.S. Lewis The quote above gives me incredible hope for all of us. C.S. Lewis is saying that God doesn’t tempt us to good, to a virtue; He doesn’t work that way. He just desires for us to […]

Seeking Saturday: Do Work Son!

I ran across a passage from 1 Chronicles 28 this morning that caught me off guard but captivated my imagination.  As you seek this Saturday, don’t lose heart in doing YOUR work. King David is dying.  He is old and knows his life and time on earth is coming to an end.  His dying vision is to build a temple for the Ark of The Lord, but God has revealed that David will never see the fullness of this vision. […]
