There are still consequences of sin after salvation. I was speaking with a man that had come to the Lord some time back, and I could tell that something was weighing upon him. I wanted to ask him about it, but in a way that gave him the options to address it or not. So, I asked him what was going on in his life. I watched a range of emotions run over his face that went from frustration to regret. He took a deep breath and said, I’m paying for past sins. I didn’t say anything as I wanted him to continue on his own accord.

The winter season is here! We’ve traded our boat-shoes for snow-boots and our mornings are spent shoveling the car out of the snow and defrosting our car windows.

When I was younger, I shoveled snow off of my neighbor’s sidewalk and driveways for extra cash.

Overcoming nagging sins. In preparing this writing, I peered over the book of Joshua. What happened to him externally, I use internally as encouragement while going through my daily battles.
“So I find this law at work. Although I want to do good, evil is right there with me.” — Romans 7:21
