Restoring the Wounded

Joy, Anyone?

June 30th, 2016

Happiness comes and goes. All it takes is one piece of bad news and we are down in the dumps. Happiness feels good, until it doesn’t. Joy is everlasting. Joy found in Christ doesn’t fade with a doctor’s report, bank statements, loss of your job, or circumstances that spiral out of your control. Joy is […]

Foggy Conditions

May 26th, 2016

Today, while driving home from our weekend of ministry in New Mexico, the highway was covered in a thick fog. One minute it was clear with plenty of visibility, and the next, we were forced to slow down in order to see the road right in front of us. Then all of the sudden, it […]

Wrong Exit

March 31st, 2016

Have you ever taken an exit while driving on the interstate, only to realize at the last minute you’ve taken the wrong one? It’s too late to swerve back into the flow of traffic and now you are committed to the exit ramp ahead. Thankfully, most of the time, straight ahead is an on ramp, […]

He Is Risen!

March 23rd, 2016

This Sunday, people across the globe will commemorate the resurrection of Christ. This moment in history is much more than a story told in the Bible or in a child’s storybook. In fact, it is not just a story, it is an event. This event changed the world, changed the future, and changed my life […]

The Price of Disobedience

February 24th, 2016

“Render to Caesar what belongs to Caesar and to God what is God’s.” Over the years of my life growing up in church and being a pastor’s son, I have often heard that passage of scripture preached with emphasis on rendering to God what is due Him…tithes. The politician preaches from the same passage with […]

Slave or Free?

January 20th, 2016

Christ came to give us freedom. Yet, so often we choose to live in bondage. Bondage to sin, insecurities, unworthiness. Each of us may deal with a variety of issues on a personal basis. The price paid at Calvary covers every need we will ever have, but we somehow feel as if that gift is […]

Mountains & Valleys

December 17th, 2015

The mountaintops are beautiful. Everyone knows the best views can be seen from the highest point. If you’ve ever driven a scenic mountain road, you’ll travel through the lush valleys to the highest peaks. Somewhere between 10,000 and 13,000 feet elevation, you’ll reach the tree line and notice that nothing grows beyond that point. Growth […]

Can’t Take That Away!

September 24th, 2015

In 2006, I was on one of the six tours I did in Iraq. I was based out of Mosul which is in the northern part of the country. It was the first stop for our wounded heroes to get urgent and immediate, life saving care before their long trek home to America. I was […]

A Great Price

September 3rd, 2015

A little boy carefully carved a toy boat, finishing it off with a sail. With a skip in his step and overwhelming joy in his heart, he took it to the river for its maiden voyage. Suddenly, the winds picked up and before he could reach it, the boat was gone, sailing down the river. […]
