God, the Ultimate Endurance Athlete

Faith & Athletics

.................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

The finish line is His why, and His finish line for us is when we surrender and declare Jesus as Lord with our mind, body, and spirit.  

Contentment versus Black Friday

contentment

.................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

I have always thought that Black Friday was a strange day. On Thursday, we give thanks for what we have, and on the next day we rush to acquire more! 

You Can’t Always Get What You Want

Guidance

.................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

The question is do we trust God to give us what we need, or do we think we know better?

The Office

Faith & Work

.................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

Imagine, if you will, the translation of a corporate office into God’s office.

Pride or Abide

Jesus

.................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

As we spend time with Him, He will fill us up as we meditate on His Word and when the choices come, we’ll choose to abide over pride.

Back to School

Faith

.................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

For the believer, there is no end to Bible study. We are always in school, not just from September to June.

Labor Day

Faith & Work

.................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

For that reason, we can rejoice and celebrate Labor Day.

Authentic Living

Authenticity

.................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

You truly start living when you live like Christ.

In the Zone

Faith & Athletics

.................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

I believe God would rather have us pray and get distracted than not pray at all.

Choose Joy

Joy

.................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................................

As I crossed the finish line at the Tulsa Marathon, I felt surprisingly strong and incredibly joyful. The events that morning were the most atypical of any marathon I had experienced.
