Find a place to check the “rockstar” at the door

This one won’t pertain to everyone. It might be specifically for my fellow Enneagram 3 performer/achiever types. I’m a rockstar and I’m proud of it. I am really good at a lot of things. You are too. If you don’t feel like you are, it’s probably because you’re doing the wrong things or you haven’tContinue reading “Find a place to check the “rockstar” at the door”

Know what (WHO) you’re FOR

I am for people – and I am for them one at a time. It’s really that simple. I don’t care if you are an anonymous person in a chat room, a cashier at a grocery store, a homeless man on the interstate ramp, a frazzled single mom, a rebellious teenager, a Fortune 500 CEO,Continue reading “Know what (WHO) you’re FOR”

COVID-19 and Confidence

Just in case you weren’t aware, the news of Coronavirus is taking over the world. Nobody who is alive today has ever seen anything like what we are experiencing as the human race right now. COVID-19 doesn’t care what country you’re from, who you worship, how much money or fame you have or who yourContinue reading “COVID-19 and Confidence”

The Lord prepares a table for me in the presence of my enemies.

About a year ago, I was right in the middle of a completely unfair circumstance. It was one of those rare moments in time when I actually didn’t do anything wrong, yet I was getting hit on every side. This wasn’t a TV show. It wasn’t a novel. There wasn’t some genius storyline behind theContinue reading “The Lord prepares a table for me in the presence of my enemies.”

All I want is all you’ve got.

In John 2, Jesus asked servants to fill water pots at a wedding that was out of wine. They filled six water pots up with water TO THE BRIM. Once they were finished, He turned their water into the finest wine of the day. God has consecrated this idea in my heart lately. It’s easyContinue reading “All I want is all you’ve got.”

“Do you love people enough that you are willing to be put in the fire for them?”

Chances are, you have a memory of something you were dared to do that probably wasn’t very smart.  Maybe it was a dare to jump off a cliff into shallow water in the dark, or to sneak onto the roof of the neighbor’s house.  I found myself in this position often and to be honest,Continue reading ““Do you love people enough that you are willing to be put in the fire for them?””

Stop wasting time.

I have been more aware of some startling things on the Internet lately. Do you know how much time people spend arguing with strangers on the Internet about politics and religion? Or filling up community Facebook pages with complaints about every single solitary thing they can think of? Or taking pointless quizzes and playing games?Continue reading “Stop wasting time.”

The safest place to be in this world is in the fire with Jesus.

Let’s talk about fire today. Here’s some context about Daniel 3. King Nebuchadnezzar was the king of Babylon, which had taken over Jerusalem. They had acquired all the Israelites, but the king had the bright idea to not let a good thing go to waste so he scoured the Israelites for the brightest Jews toContinue reading “The safest place to be in this world is in the fire with Jesus.”

Never give up.

Never. Give. Up. Five months ago, I was disappointed because my coach said made me take a break for a few days from the gym while I saw a cardiologist and had a few tests run. A few days turned into a few weeks. A few weeks turned into a few months. A few monthsContinue reading “Never give up.”

It’s time to win at writing.

If you’re anything like me, you have a bunch of big dreams and hustle. I keep finding myself in the crosshairs of ideas and clarity.  You know what happens when I find myself there? I freeze.  Perfectionism overwhelms me. The wrong voice wins. And instead of reaching my audience with the great content I’ve produced,Continue reading “It’s time to win at writing.”
