When your kids need you, you're there

I’m sure we’ve all have at least heard of “The Prodigal Son” and hopefully read that parable as well in the book of Luke. If you are a Dad, then this story probably resonates with you on many levels. Being there for your kids when they need you is important.

Anointed, Appointed & Affirmed For Your Purpose

Anointed, Appointed & Affirmed

I know we have all had that moment in life where we have found ourselves stuck! It happened to me on a hot August day. I remember it as if it was yesterday, trapped in my minivan with my one & two-year-old. Help me JESUS!! Both screaming and crying, both hot and tired. I tried to start the van but nothing happened; my battery was dead. Just great! I said a short prayer, really to keep me sane. I said Lord, get me through this test as you have done so many times before in the past.

Listening to your wife | Membership

Listening to your wife is a skill you should take seriously. I am a terrible listener when distracted. If we are in a crowd, the multiple conversations of the group will get my attention.

James 1:19 — “Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger;”

The Importance of Accountability in the Church

The Importance of Accountability in the Church

Our scripture reminds us of the importance of accountability in the life of the believer.

1 Timothy 5:20 — “Those who continue in sin, rebuke in the presence of all, so that the rest also will be fearful of sinning.” 

Every day I begin my devotion in prayer. I ask God to clear my conscience so I can bask in the wisdom of His Words. After reading the word, I begin to go into deep prayer and then write that prayer in my prayer journal. This journal has all of my thanks, all of my request and all of my sin.
