Blaming the Bride

  • by
Last week was an interesting and exciting time for my wife and I. For more than a year we have floated here and there visiting churches or not going at all. We were aloof with the idea of settling down because we are human and struggled with knowing some of the inner workings of the people at the churches we had been to for extended periods. Some things we probably… Read More »Blaming the Bride

A Month (or More) in Prayer Journaling

I’ve posted about this on my personal Facebook as well as the Just Hold Fast page and it was something that had been on my mind and heart. I don’t pray enough, or didn’t. I don’t know the barometer of what is ‘enough’ because the Bible tells us to never cease praying (1 Thessalonians 5:16-18). What I do know is it lingered there, in the back of my mind and… Read More »A Month (or More) in Prayer Journaling

Loving and Leading – A Compassionate Leader – Faithful Father Series

  • by
This is post 5 of 8 in the series “Faithful Father” Leadership is a subjective skill because the base definition of it leaves it as an open-ended trait. Men can posses the ability to lead people in different ways. God has a way of raising up people to lead that others simply never expected. Every married man has a command from God to be leading his family spiritually. We must… Read More »Loving and Leading – A Compassionate Leader – Faithful Father Series

Men to Know: John Mark

  • by
This is post 7 of 7 in the series “Men to Know” For the most part when I look at who I want to highlight in the Bible I look for uncommon men who provide an uncommon lesson that just makes sense when it clicks. Sometimes, like today I look at the life of a well known man from the Bible. In fact, how about someone who wrote Bible? How… Read More »Men to Know: John Mark
Good Host Diotrephes

Men to Know: Diotrephes

This is post 2 of 7 in the series “Men to Know” Diotrephes, that is not a name that rings a bell. It didn’t for me anyway. I’m not a learned scholar of God’s word but I do the best I can to learn more so when I read about Diotrephes I just kind of had a “huh, interesting” moment. You can read about Diotrephes in 3 John 1:9-11, yep… Read More »Men to Know: Diotrephes

By this we shall know that we are of the truth and reassure our heart before him. – 1 John 3:18-19 We talk about love around here. You could say we got a whole lotta’ lovin’ even.

Serve The Lord

This is post 57 of 64 in the series “Daily Devotional” As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. – Ephesians 4:1 Being a prisoner for the Lord. It’s a powerful idea. It’s also terrifying. We like to control things, it’s easily one of the things I personally struggle with. I am getting better at it but… Read More »Serve The Lord
