Sunday Night Thoughts

May 8, 2011

Hey guys. Hope you enjoy my thoughts. Leave your own at the end if you would like. I would appreciate it.

I love my wife. And I think she is wonderful. And I think I am a pretty good husband… but I felt God convict me this weekend on some issues on how I see and treat my wife. Here is stepping up my game with the grace of God.

We lost our playoff game tonight. My thoughts: Youth wins almost every time. We just got out played. No biggie, we will be back.

When we preach, we ought to preach with eternity in our minds. The eternity of those who are listening to us preach the Word. Let us not fail them.

I am bouncing back from a few “down” weeks in ministry. Thanks for the prayers.

One word: Doppelganger. (You should try and use that word every day, it will make you smile for sure)

Going to be taking some time off soon. Really looking forward to checking out.

Proud of my friends who are graduating this spring. Praying that God would show himself in a new way as they step into a new phase of life.

Currently the Pirates are .500 ! Someone needs to take me to a game.

The most important relationship in the world is the one between you and God.

This just in: God’s number one priority is God. News flash, it isn’t you. God saving people does not terminate on our salvation, but was meant for us to make much of Him.

By the way, my Dog Moses is doing well. No seizures this week. Thank God for looking after him.

Question:

May 4, 2011

Here is a question for you.

What is the ultimate pain?

Can this be answered?

Is it possible to put it in words?

Or is pain determined by who it is happening to?

Does all of humanity experience the same amount of pain?

Is it sickness? Is it death? Is it loss?

Could the greatest pain be something that everyone one already knows?

Sunday Night Thoughts

May 1, 2011

I missed this last week. I was just lazy.

Next to glorifying God, being a husband is the most important God I have as a Christian. If you fail at that, then I would question how well your relationship with Christ is. Why such a strong statement? Because it’s what the Bible commands.

I am speaking at the end of the week at an event on the topic of: God’s plan for your life? To make much of Him.

It disappoints me when I hear stories of people hurting others.

For those who care… we won out first playoff game. On to the next round.

In a few weeks I am headed on my annual fishing trip. 5 days, nothing but fishing. Oh yeah.

I work with some of the coolest, best youth leaders. I really appreciate my team.

I would like to close with asking something of you. Earlier today I think my dog Moses had what I suspect was a seizure. There have been only a few times in my life where I was scared sick. This was one. His whole body started spasming, and who started breathing heavy and drooling, which he never does. So I know not every reader is a dog person, or would even understand the kind of bond you have with a dog. But I would appreciate if you said a prayer for Moses. I never thought I would be that person. But here I am, a little worried and praying myself that it doesn’t happen again or while I am at work. So think about it, and pray for Moses.

Tough Question

April 28, 2011

No Motivation

April 27, 2011

Have you ever hit a spot in life where you just did not want to do anything? I am sure you have. That is kind of how I feel with blogging. I will admit, I don’t have enough motivation. I know writing this I would go against some rule of blogging that says not to say you don’t feel like it, but I don’t care. Can I say I got nothing?

It’s funny because I do have things on my brain. I would like to write about them. But I haven’t.

So I ask this question, and I am not sure who will listen, let alone answer… but what do you do when you don’t have motivation? What do you do when life gets busy and you don’t feel like writing or trying to help things get better?

I am up for solutions. Maybe they are right in front of my face, maybe they are tucked away and I just need to find them. Anyhow…here I am. Looking for motivation for blogging, in some ways looking for motivation for life. (Trust me it isn’t that bad, don’t worry too much I will be fine.)

But can you help a brother out?

Making Much of Him for the Weekend

April 22, 2011

Leave it to me to say something that no one will actually verbalize or write out.

This weekend we will celebrate what Christ did some 2000 years ago. Many will rejoice and make much of how the Father God sent His only Son to die for SINS. Our sins. Because we don’t have a choice, we were born this way… sinners.

As I look around, I see lots of sermons, small group studies, and books on shelves of Christian book stores on how to be a better you, have a better marriage, have your kids obey you, have a stress and anxiety free life. We make much of ourselves through out the whole year. Thinking of how we can use Christ to make our lives better. The funny thing is, is that He does make our lives better so it is easy to get caught in that thought.

But this one weekend, as a Church, we will make much of Christ! We will celebrate the cross and the resurrection. Hopefully we will recognize why Christ had to come, and let it change our lives… the fact that He did come.

But after Sunday, can I ask you a question? Will you continue to remember why Christ came? Will you make much of Christ after this Easter Sunday? I pray you do. I pray I do.
