The Maker

Sometimes words just don’t do.  I discovered this video ( linked here) yesterday after it was shared by Relevant Magazine.  It’s five minutes long, but I think you will find that those five minutes will be well spent.



Teach us to realize the brevity of life, so that we may grow in wisdom. Psalm 90:12 New Living Translation (©2007)

No Fear Friday

I have been a little distracted by the news of the day, especially since I had a child at the local midnight release this morning.  Because of that, I have used up all of my blogging time, and I need to head off to the workplace.

Anyway, just a little reminder this morning


The Lord is my light and my salvation —
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?   Psalm 27:1 New International Version (NIV)

Random Friday Thoughts

It’s Friday, and because of that, here are some disjointed Friday like thoughts to get you started on the weekend.

  • This is a funny but encouraging piece of motivation this morning

    “Be like a postage stamp, stick to one thing until you get there.” – Josh Billings

  • As you think about solving issues, and facing whatever is holding you back, consider these words of the great King David

    in God I trust and am not afraid.
    What can man do to me?  Psalm 56:11

Be Strong and Take Heart

It’s the beginning of the week.  What fears, anxieties and apprehensions are you facing this week that are weighing you down? As you expose them, think about these promises from Psalm 27 (NIV)


1 The Lord is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?

7Hear my voice when I call, Lord;
be merciful to me and answer me.

14 Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord.

Be Strong, take heart, and let go of those fears and anxieties that control you.

Another Tough Guy

Last week I mentioned the Nike guy who is running and biking across the country for a better world. That dude was a monster. So this week I introduce another gentleman doing a similar thing – Jamie Summerlin, from the homeland – West Virginia! He is running from Oregon to Annapolis in 100 days to raise awareness of wounded warriors.

He may not be moving as fast as Jason Lester but his endurance, drive and determination are equally remarkable. 

For instance yesterday he ran 30 miles in 6 hours and 8 mins, and I think he will be doing something similar today.  That’s just something to think about as you press on through the day.  This guys are out working it, and you can too!

Rise and Grind!

32 It is God who arms me with strength
   and keeps my way secure.
33 He makes my feet like the feet of a deer;
   he causes me to stand on the heights.   Psalm 18:32-33 New International Version (NIV)
