Avoiding Detours

A few weeks ago I was listening to a message about the plans the Lord has for each one of us. The pastor brought out many great points about how the Lord uses the circumstances of life as one of the many ways He guides us along the path. As he developed the message, he quoted a statement a friend made to him several years ago, “The only thing harder than waiting on God is wishing you had.” Read that statement again and let it sink in…

Our Work Versus Our Value

Most men base their value in what they can do with their knowledge, abilities, hands or a combination of the two. I was no different. If the job I was tasked to accomplished failed or did not meet the standards, I considered it a personal affront to me as an individual. That all changed on March 3rd, 2001. I went from being a man of the world to a child of the living God. On that day the transformation of understanding who I am in Him and the value He places on my life began.

Moving Ahead of God

“The LORD has kept me from having children. Go, sleep with my maidservant; perhaps I can build a family through her” (Gen 16:2).

No one is better at convincing me I should do something than me.

That led to me buy things I did not need to impress people I did not know with money I did not have. The result was a debt that I am just climbing out of 16 years later.

Getting Picked

“You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit – fruit that will last” (John 15:16).

Yesterday two things of significance happened. I was chatting with a friend on line about his feed when out of the blue he asked me if I wanted to purchase a piece of equipment he had bought over the winter. We settled on a price and he will ship it out this week.

Selling Your Birthright

When you operate a business based on Christ center principles, sometimes you will loose because you are unwilling to bend how you do business. As our year progresses, we are finding more and more people are interested in their own agenda with little regard for anyone other than themselves.

Fears Paralyzes, Faith Energizes

2017 continues to be one of the oddest years since I returned to the Fathers house in 2001. For the last few years we have worked with the same group of promoters adding a new group on occasion. This year that has changed, partly because we have better availability than in the past, but mostly because we have stopped working with a couple of different series which opened up our schedule to other opportunities.
