Actions Speak Louder Than Words

I’ve heard it said that effort is the best indicator of interest. What you care most about; you will act for. Too many Christians do a LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT of talking. And not enough LIVING. I am not a legalistic person. I do not believe that God’s grace depends on my action. God’s grace exists even if…

Faith > Feelings

I have often said that I see worship as this thing of Rhythm. And what I mean by that is the more we worship the more in rhythm our hearts become with God’s heart. The more our mind and soul begins to flow with HIS. We live in a world right now that is only…

Some Thoughts on Faith

Let me start with a disclaimer that this is not an attempt to define faith in a blog. People write books on it. People make a one sentence definition of it. I’m not trying to define it as much as put down lessons from it that I have learned as it is exercised and even…

All In

A Resolute Church

Resolute (adjective ) - Admirably purposeful, determined, and unwavering. When Isaac was a baby, he and I lived with my mom. I cannot remember another time where everything in my life seemed like it was in crisis; health issues, financial issues, personal safety issues, and emotional health issues pervaded our everyday. It was as though…

Even in the Questioning

Have you ever gotten fed up with how long God was taking to answer you and you get to the point where you just ask the question: Are You even listening? I think we all have. This past week Pastor Nick dug into Habakkuk 1 where Habakkuk went to God in frustration and desperation. Now,…
