Fight to Follow. Fight to Love.

This post was originally published on my old South Plains site on September 2, 2015   The song resonating with me most in this season is Hillsong United’s Love is War. This is off of the same album as Oceans, so that huge single probably outshined this song, but take a second to listen to it again. Love is War …

New Year, New Opportunities. New. Things.

Well hey there! It’s been a summer. Annnnnnd, I kind of didn’t blog much about it. Sorry. Suffice it to say this: Summer was actually pretty dang restful. I got to do some cool things (time with friends, time in B/CS, weddings, Carlsbad Caverns. It was cool. I took my youth to camp. A fantastic experience. Every second of it. …

Brave

About the time I moved to Levelland, Bethel Music’s “You Make Me Brave” was beginning to gain popularity in the world of Christian music. The main theme of the song is reflective of much original Christian art geared toward millennials right now: God remains strong, faithful, and true in the midst of life’s storms; therefore you as a Christian have …

Important

This Friday a lucky few who were able to pre-order it in time will get to experience a cultural and technological revolution. It may change the way we interact with others. The way we interact with technology. The way we interact with fashion. The revolution, you ask? The Apple Watch. So I may have been playing that up a bit, …

A weekend in bed.

In God’s infinite wisdom, I’ve been down and out this weekend, sick in bed. At first glance I hated it. I had been putting this particular weekend on a pedestal for so long. Now I’m not the busiest person in the world, but I’ve been pretty much running at capacity for quite a while. In mid March, we spent 8 …

Sit at the table

Do you find it interesting that the last two things Jesus chose to do as a free man were prayer alone and a meal in community together? I mean, He could have been doing some amazing miracles or enjoying a final night of freedom before He was arrested and put on trial, but He chose to do these two things …

OLD SITE // How Much?

This post has been transferred from my old South Plains Blog. Originally posted March 10, 2015.   I’m home from another “pedal to the metal” Monday. 12 hours of work. 9 am to 9 pm. I love my job a lot, but on days like today I get home, let out a breath, and collapse on my couch. But it’s …

OLD SITE // Help My Unbelief

This blog has been transferred from an older site of mine and was originally published January 14, 2014 Immediately the father of the child cried out and said, ‘I believe; help my unbelief!’ -Mark 9:24 At first, this biblical character seems more than just a little misguided. His faith is strong, but then after a trial it instantly weakens. I …

Daily.

I’m young and dumb. I’m confused and that’s not going to change for quite a while. At the end of the day, I don’t know what I’m doing, but I have an ego the size of Brazil. One thing I am learning though – and this won’t be a shocker to anyone – life is lived day by day. You …
