If We Stop Having Fun


If we stop having fun, we’re doing it wrong.

I’m not saying every task or relationship is always easy peasy, lemon squeezy.

That’s not to say there aren’t times of trauma and difficulty, because we all have life stuff that comes our way.

But when the pain is unrelenting and our joy becomes lost, something has to change.

It’s not the circumstances,

It's not your partner.

It’s not the location,

It’s not the leadership.

Often enough, it’s ourselves we have to change.

It’s our own attitude.

It’s our own perspective.

It’s our own fun-factor that needs an overhaul.

When it’s time to change, we’ve got to rearrange.

We can make the change.

We can do it different.

It's our heart that needs a jump-start.

From Slavery to Sanctuary


When we see the great commission as a draft notice instead of a party invitation:

Our lives become a pain instead of a pleasure and a regulation instead of a romance

Our lists become a have-to instead of a get-to

Our schedules are filled with obligations instead of choices

Our relationships become task oriented instead of connection conscious

Our vision is cluttered with paradigms instead of people

Our hearing is loaded with guilt instead of goodness

There's a mind shift from slavery to sanctuary.

You're invited.

You can do it.

You're Most Beautiful


You are most beautiful when you are being you

You are most creative when you are doing what you love

You are most peaceful when you are being loved and loving

You are most productive when you are soaked in and surrounded by what you were created for

You worship him with all of you and that is enough

Your life is not a performance or a recital

You don't have to dress up and hide your flaws

It's raw and real and good

Be free to be

Christ in YOU is THE HOPE of GLORY


Of this church I was made a minister according to the stewardship from God bestowed on me for your benefit, so that I might fully carry out the preaching of the word of God, that is, the mystery which has been hidden from the past ages and generations, but has now been manifested to His saints, to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory. We proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man complete in Christ. For this purpose also I labor, striving according to His power, which mightily works within me. (Colossians 1:25-29 NASB)
