5 minutes inside eternity

I had to share this.  It wrecked me.  Not too many videos like this do, but this one did.  God forgive me for being timid, insecure, and withdrawn about sharing the Gospel!  Please share this on all your social media sites.  I don't ask that often.  Either Facebook, Twitter, Google+, your blog, etc.  Get this … Continue reading 5 minutes inside eternity

Lost and Found

Out of our foolishness, we wander away.  Because of carelessness, we become misplaced.  Out of our disobedience, betrayal, and selfishness, we live our own life according to our own self-gratification only to find we are dead in our ways.

Your Marriage is Under Attack

“And let us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without religion.

Marriage on Purpose (part 1)

The Institution Interestingly enough, my last three posts on Faith, Commitment, and Motivation have led to this.  In short, marriage takes all three.  It takes a tremendous amount of faith to entrust yourself to the same person for the rest of your life.  What is it that motivates you to sacrifice day in and day … Continue reading Marriage on Purpose (part 1)

The Highest Motivation

What motivates you to do the things you do? The motivation to do something long term is difficult due to the circumstance, feeling, or other "force" that inspired the motivation is long gone.  There is a quote that has been filtering around social media, that goes something like this: Just last week, I wrote a … Continue reading The Highest Motivation
