We Belong To God

When we search for belonging outside of God we set ourselves up for disappointment. The relationships we have, the companies we work for, the political parties we belong too will all let us down at some point in time.

A Heart In Communion With The Lord

When I fail to draw close to the Lord, and worship Him from a heart that truly is in communion with Him - from a spirit that is quiet and still, listening to His instruction - then I am simply going through the motions. I am following the rules of religion instead of following my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. When I fail to draw close to the Lord, and make His will my passion - then my prayers and petitions are lip service to the Lord. They are simply a part of what I do - words that I hope illicit a positive response and favor. They are empty because they originate from a heart in communion with my human nature rather than my Lord and Savior.

A Shield Of Love

Trying to balance work and home life, focus on key relationships, and invest in the key areas of my life that help me love, lead, and serve with purpose can often be overwhelming. The tyranny of the urgent fights for my attention with such ferocity that life (especially during the holidays) can feel out of control or that it is spinning so fast.
