Pressing Forward

Tonight my run started out great and then the heat kicked in. Even though I run later at night it is still really hot outside here in the desert, especially when working out. But, this is a time I love because during my jog/run I spend a lot of time with God in prayer. It may seem weird to some that I would pray while working out and how do I do that while struggling physically in exercise. But for me, it is a quiet time, away from everything, and even though it is tough, it clears my mind and the only thing left is me and the Lord. And tonight (and this happened the other night too) right at the end of my last lap, the breeze kicked up and it was so wonderful! Where I run, at Coronado Track, there is a tree that sits overlooking lane 1 and 2. Well, what I mean...

From my eyes I see

From my eyes I see

From my eyes I see A man who rests in the foot of eternity Give us harmony and balance A destiny, a safe harbor Honor is placed upon his name Etching of his excellence he will reign He walks with little fright for he knows He is prefect in God sight Where the road goes, and where the day flows He fly’s into the land where worries don’t fright He knows that God has him in his pure light His beautiful smile to hide the pain that we might gain His last strides into the clutches of the light Taken from those who loved him dear A man that touched so many in his short time here In the Hearts and Souls of many he will never be forgotten ©2002-2012  Inspired in tribute to an awesome Christian...

On Brokenness

On Brokenness

We’re all broken you can chose to agree or not, God’s been revealing the message of brokenness to me for a few weeks now, cannot run from it or escape it. Consider the levels of brokenness as physical, emotional, or spiritual. On some level we’re human and that truly means broken. Through adversity, failure, and disappointment, the God molds us into people whom He can use. The world honors personal strength, natural charisma, and self-reliance. But the Holy Spirit works through people who recognize their weakness, submit to His guidance, and deliberately rely on His power rather than their own. The next time Satan tries to discourage you by pointing out your shortcomings, remind yourself that God works best through broken people. So I pray that...

Holiness

Holiness

Well are called to be holy. If we do not understand and affirm that primary relationship, we fall into the trap of reducing holiness to mere morality. It’s about a relationship between God and us, in Christ we are already Holy but we should live a transformed life or be in the process of transformation. It’s pretty radical and meant to be. All we have and all that we are belongs to God.

Love @ Easter

Love @ Easter

“Love”, it’s the word or verb that’s been written and talked about for an eternity. It’s the thing, the bigger you make it, the harder it is to get your mind around it. In it’s simplest form you think it’s about instinct; in it’s more complex form it’s about a positive emotion of regard and affection and the price and meaning is steep. Me personally, I’m the kind of a guy that likes to see things on a simple level, I believe it just makes things easier.This thing “LOVE” is undeniably a necessary component in being human, the expression, the act essential in our humanness and humanity. The emotion evoked in the very depths of the soul provokes the heart to pound, mind to race, to take risks,...
