My field…

My field…where I’m called to serve, is below my feet and I walk in His Grace serving this little space answering His call hour by hour, person by person, task by task in Divine service.  Tomorrow might bring a new calling but tomorrow may never come so I prepare thoughtfully for tomorrow while fulfilling each opportunity of the day to bring Him glory.

God First – Life Fully Integrated

Twenty years ago I received a profound message from a wise, elderly German woman who was gifted in Spiritual mentoring.  Like so many, I was searching for my purpose in life.  Being in a state of ignorance, I was primarily focused on an unintentional self-centered approach towards life.  When I asked her, “what is my purpose?” she looked at me thoughtfully and said, “Dear child, it’s to serve and love God – it’s the same for everyone.”  I thought, “Huh? That’s it. That’s too simple.” But actually it was too vague for me to comprehend the grandeur and practical meaning of what she intended to reveal without an understanding of my immature faith and... read more

Know Him. Love Him. Serve Him

The Word, the source of Truth delivers a message revealing the purpose of why we are here and what we must do…simply to know, love and serve God.  It’s so simple in it’s purity that the human brain cannot comprehend it without the knowledge of God’s Holy Word.  Before having the knowledge of the Word, if we search for our purpose we try to analyze the when, where, what and how eventually destroying the beauty of our simple purpose based on human intellect.  God sees this doorway.  But in frustration, we give up searching for it because without the knowledge we are not fully connected and we cannot see God’s direction eventually spinning aimlessly into defeat.  We... read more

God’s Field is Below My Feet

“My field…where I’m called to serve, is below my feet and I walk in His Grace serving this little space answering His call hour by hour, person by person, task by task in Divine service. Tomorrow might bring a new calling but tomorrow may never come so I prepare thoughtfully for tomorrow while fulfilling each opportunity of the day to bring Him glory.”

Vision 2012 – what’s yours?

“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.”  ~ Proverbs 29:18 Without a clear vision, life can become uncertain, chaotic, and even depressing. Weaving the simplicity of God’s word into our lives will deliver the Truth and the unique vision that He created for each and every life. You might ask, but how do I do that? The answer is so simple that many cannot or will not accept it. Read the Holy Bible and live the Holy Bible – that’s it! We create the complexity within our lives when we ignore His teachings and our excuses of why we ignore them become are the... read more

How solid is the ground for which we stand?

Luke 8:11-15 NIV The seed is the word of God. Those along the path are the ones who hear, and then the devil comes and takes away the word from their hearts, so that they may not believe and be saved. Those on the rocky ground are the ones who receive the word with joy when they hear it, but they have no root. They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away. The seed that fell among thorns stands for those who hear, but as they go on their way they are choked by life’s worries, riches and pleasures, and they do not mature. But the seed on... read more

e·ter·ni·ty

e·ter·ni·ty [ih-tur-ni-tee] 1.   infinite time; duration without beginning or end. 2.   beternal existence, especially as contrasted with mortal life: the eternity of God. 3.   Theology. the timeless state into which the soul passes at a person’s death. I read a statistic (somewhat dated) that 75% of Americans believe in life after death.  That’s a pretty significant number of people and it makes me wonder how much time those individuals spend focusing on their own eternity.  Most people that I know spend the majority amount of their time focused on this temporary existence on earth, including myself.  We wake up and prepare for work, get dressed and decorated for the day.  We spend the day... read more

God’s holy message shall be mine

I’m on a flight back from Chicago to Atlanta and this is on my mind…what message do I want to share tonight?  I started to question why I feel self pressure to leave a message and why would I think that anyone would be interested in what I have to say? I think I fall into the same trap as most human beings and that trap is the mindset that somehow we must figure out the answers to the meaning of life and deliver our own interpretation of that. And why wouldn’t we, the ego convinces us that our view is of utmost importance and we must share it with the world.  Oh brother,... read more

God Provides and Uses our Work

Rwanda continues to remain on my mind and within my heart.  Most recently the concept of establishing an IT network and learning platform for rural schools in Rwanda seems to be taking on a life of its own.  Working among many world-class technology partners and leaders creates an opportunity for me to bring those groups together to share ideas on how we might be able to impact the learning and computing capabilities for disadvantaged schools in Rwanda and throughout the world.  Creating an equal opportunity educational environment is critical to the growth of a nation which is on the rise, not only rebuilding its economic infrastructure, but advancing towards a thriving economic leader in... read more
