WWJD: Do Good Anyway

Though they stumble, they will never fall,    for the Lord holds them by the hand. Psalm 37:24, NLT David. David was the chosen King. Anointed to be King as a young boy, at the surprise of his brothers. His brothers who all believed they should be chosen. They were older. Stronger. David was just a shepherd boy. A [...]

WWJD-First, Let Me…?

I had the immense honor and pleasure a bit ago of baptizing my mother-in-law. I’ll share the details of the day in a different post (one related to silly prayers), but I have to say..the feeling was incredible. The honor of being the one chosen to participate with the Holy Spirit is one that really [...]

WWJD: Pray for those who hurt you

I went to therapy the other day. I am not too proud to admit that I am a Christian. A mental health provider. A pastor. And I am in therapy. I can imagine that during this time of upheaval and isolation many people are. As a therapist, I can attest to the growing numbers. So [...]

WWJD About My Tattoos?

In essence, this is what that means: We make a priority, give our time to, and seek out what is essentially important to us. For [...]

WWJD: Love that never ends

Love never dies. 1 Corinthians 13, MSG In the last several weeks, I have gone through the various aspects of love that Paul speaks of in 1 Corinthians 13. Today, I wrap up the truth about that elusive and often misunderstood "Love Chapter." We now [...]

WWJD: Keep on loving

Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. 1 Corinthians 13:7, NLT Ever wanted to give up on someone? Just wave your hands in the air, accept defeat, and let them go on about their (usually destructive) business? I know I have. But something often stops me. Yes, [...]

WWJD: Just tell the truth already

Love does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 1 Corinthians 13:6, NLT Have you known someone, then found out later that they hid things about themselves? Left you wondering if they were really who they seemed to be? Why they didn't think you could hold space for their truth? Or [...]
