Following Jesus When It Doesn’t Make Sense

Once when he was standing on the shore of Lake Gennesaret, the crowd was pushing in on him to better hear the Word of God. He noticed two boats tied up. The fishermen had just left them and were out scrubbing their nets. He climbed into the boat that was Simon’s and asked him to [...]

Monday Motivation: Feeding the Hunger

Anyone who knows me knows I love Aviation and all things about the industry. It has taught me patience, that there’s nothing set in stone, and to go with the flow. The biggest thing I had to learn is probably the most important, to constantly keep myself ‘fed’. Early on I found out I could [...]

I Failed, So What’s New?

We’re two weeks into 2013 and the resolutions that you wrote down haven’t gone as well as you had hoped. The workout routine kinda stalled when you realized that you forgot your earbuds at work and you can’t workout without music. Your resolution to be more Christ-like took a detour when you gave an 80 [...]
