One Leadership Lesson We Can Learn From The Best Pitcher Of All Time

Recently, I read an interesting statistic regarding Nolan Ryan. He’s arguably one of the best pitchers of all time. He’s the all-time Major League leader in strikeouts, but he’s also the all-time leader in walks. Did you catch that? He’s the strikeout and walk king. He’s the best at being the best and the best [...]

The Most Subtle Way To Lose Your Vision

It’s not the big things in life that cause us the most trouble. It’s the little things. King Solomon, the wisest man on the planet, once said, “the little foxes that spoil the vineyards” Song of Solomon 2:15 Most bad decisions are usually the result of small incremental decisions being overlooked. Most bank robbers start [...]

The Only Way To Predict Your Future

It’s impossible to predict your future with 100% accuracy. We simply have no way of knowing what we’re going to encounter. While we don’t know the future; we do know the God who does. The only way to guarantee your future is to make a down payment today.  The best way to reap a harvest [...]

Please Pray For Our Team

The reason they look ridiculous is because people weren’t designed to jump like frogs. They were designed to take steps, [...]

What to do when you feel surrounded?

Have you ever felt surrounded with no place to escape to? If you’re breathing, there’s a good chance you’ve felt this way before. (Incidentally, if you’re not breathing, stop reading immediately and get to a hospital!) I think everyone has a place where they feel it’s safe to turn to. For some, it’s a trusted [...]

Who’s Word Do You Put Your Trust In?

In our culture today we often have a hard time believing people or putting stock in them. We’ve been let down too many times. Sometimes we just need someone to believe in. We want to trust them, but it’s hard because we’ve been let down before. It’s important that we learn to depend upon and [...]

What Do You Do When Your World Is Falling Apart?

Have you ever felt like your world was falling apart? Ever feel like your life was imploding? Everywhere you turned someone was bad mouthing you or angry with you. Sometimes you feel like everyone is out to get you. If you’ve ever felt this way, you’re in good company. In the Old Testament David felt [...]

What I Thought I Knew About Parenting

When you’re younger it’s easy to think you have everything figured out. I was once an arm chair parent. I often sat back and diagnosed other parents problems. In hindsight, it was dumb, but I still did it. Before I had children I thought I understood parenting. I used to say things like, “I’m never [...]
