Like A Child: Infancy


We all start as infants, both in life and in Christianity.
Perhaps we try to grow up too fast.
Or some of us may get stuck in the infant state.
Jesus said to come unto him with childlike hearts.
Is it possible to have the heart of a child while still allowing the mind to mature to an adult?
Isn’t that is the ideal state?



Why are we in such a hurry to grow up and be so fast paced that we just get through each day?
We have lost our youthful spirits worrying about what others think and being successful.
What does God intend? God is our Father and he will provide if we trust.


Are we content to accept what God has in store for us or do we desire the control to run our own lives?
When we interfere, the train goes off course.


Are you new in Christ or rededicated? Congratulations!!! You are brand new!
Welcome to God’s family!


You are loved.


If you don’t believe that you are loved, I hope that through this blog you will discover
God’s amazing love for you.







Do you believe you are loved by God?

Even after a year I still need to be cautious about getting too caught up in how many followers or likes there are on this blog. My uncle is a missionary in Puerto Rico and has been for over 40 years. He was in town on furlough Christmas of 2016 and I was privileged to hear him speak. He mentioned how people that follow the mission may get concerned with how big or small the number of people there are in the PR congregation. My uncle said, "its not in the numbers". Absolutely! It is too easy to get drawn into the statistics of how to get more likes and more reach on Facebook specifically. It's not about that. It's about God's love.

God's love is more than a Bible verse post on a cool image. It is so much MORE!!! Look outside and see the undeniable work of our most amazing Father. See the way He reveals himself in our children's smiles.

For awhile it seemed that every time I heard a crash or boom from the kids,…

A Fresh Coat of Paint

This weekend when the kids were at their dad's, I touched up the paint around the house. It was awesome of the landlord to leave some in the place so it matches perfectly. After a year and a half of living here, there are some areas of the walls that have crayon, marker, stickers that peeled the paint, and other typical wear and tear of living in a house with young kids. At first it may not seem like that big of a deal to touch up paint, but wow did it give me a boost in my outlook.

A bonus blessing of the weekend was that I was able to go on a walk and enjoy a little sunshine. While I was out, the paint was able to dry. When I got home, it was like I walked into a new atmosphere. The place felt refreshed. I could walk up the stairwell and feel like it was so much cleaner and the energy was renewed. It was and still is amazing a day later. I know it won't always be this "clean" feeling but for now I'm savoring it.

This morning while preparing to watch church onli…

The Picture

Do you remember that moment you took that first picture of you and your significant other, before it was official? Do you remember the feeling? Take a look at that photo, either physically or in your mind, what feelings does it invoke? Depending on your current situation that answer may vary significantly.

Isn't that just like life though, people change. Our ideas of a person are based on the first impression usually. We build up a fantasy of what life could be like with them. But we all change and often so do our opinions and even possibly how we remember someone or how we remember details of our relationship with them.

Seeing a picture of what once seemed like an ideal relationship that has since broken apart is hard on a soul. It doesn't matter if it is your own picture or of someone else.  In the image you can see the light in a person's eyes, the excitement of not noticing the other's flaws. But once you know that it has been ruined by human nature and sin, it hurts…
