It has been awhile since I have posted here. I realize that it is a technical mistake to not continually post – especially if one wants to keep those following as a follower. I appreciate those who have messaged me or spoke with me in some way that I needed to write. That’s always so … More Overwhelmed with the presence of God
Waving the white flag of surrender today… I want to give up all of my past, my hopes, my plans, my dreams, my future… everything! I want to lay it all down and surrender. Before they ever landed in a prison for their faith they made a decision to surrender to Jesus Christ. Maybe that’s … More Surrender
I watched Little House on the Prairie last night. It happened to be an episode I had never seen before. The Ingles have a son, James. James was in the wrong place at the wrong time. He walked into a store and was shot walking into a robbery. All the doctors, friends, and family of Charles Ingles told him … More The Posture of Prayer
This year I have been asked to take on two different teams and my response to both was, “Yes, I will take it on.” (The teams were with different organizations.) I had reservations prior to agreeing to work with both. At the time, it seemed the opportunities out-weighed the reservations. In both cases, shortly after I started the small reservations I had … More Ignoring Internal Reservations
These words by Oswald Chambers always seem to stir my mind and my heart. Everyone is not called to preach. But we are all “called” to serve the Lord with the gifts that we have been given.

Then there are those who may think that this only means STOP if there are other cars coming or if the Police are watching. So, what do … More Stop Signs
I was talking with a good friend of mine this morning. As we talked, he began to share a passage of Scripture with me from Psalm 116. As he read this passage to me I was reminded of this praise and worship set by U2. It’s a very moving moment. According to RNS Blog, while speaking … More U2: Praise & Worship
…it’s 10th Anniversary. So much of my life has been shaped by the 5 years of my life spent at Harvest Community Church. I moved to Albuquerque with my family in September 1999. We arrived not knowing what God had in store for us. No home… no job… no money… no money… just my good … More Harvest Community Church/Soul Rio Celebrates….
Prayer, intercession, calling out to God from within the depths our own hearts and souls with groaning that cannot be understood… At various times in our lives, our cirumstances often dictate how we pray. I’m sure when Jonah was first thrown overboard and swallowed up by a giant fish he was relieved and scared all at … More It’s time to be a warrior.
