picture from thefilmspectrum.com Day 1 - finished thoughts. I had a friend of mine comment yesterday with two, very insightful thoughts on truly following wherever Jesus may lead us. The first was the idea that we tend to limit God because we are unwilling to take risks, to dream big or maybe it's because we've never … Continue reading 40 Day Journey – with Dietrich Bonhoeffer – Day 1 finished
I ended the last post saying that Love was another component to serving others. I have not always had a desire to serve others. Actually, for most of my life, my desire was to see how I could get others to serve me. Ok, that was a little sobering to actually type out but being … Continue reading Life Lesson 2 – Serving continued
I left off the last post with the question, What is God's Will for My Life? You here this question or statement a lot while hanging out with Christians, usually something like - "if you could pray for me, I am praying that I would do God's will".

Myself along with four others will be traveling to Cape Town, South Africa on November 5th to take part in the work being done … Continue reading South Africa Mission 11-4-12
I know the last post was a bit lengthy so I will try and keep this a bit shorter. Here are some more comparisons between Joseph's and Jesus' lives. The first is the exaltation of the two. For Joseph, enslaved, then imprisoned for false charges brought against him had to endure a heavy price by … Continue reading A Study of Joseph – parallels of Jesus and Joseph
