Concerned about another software company ripping me off, I awake at 4:17am. I prefer to sleep, but make my way to the coffee machine and into my office to check on a refund. No such luck – no refund. The tension is rising. The root cause is not the money or principle, it’s the time […]
Driving from Kigali towards Musanze, I grab the handrail as the tattered jeep sends us air born in our seats, hitting every pothole along the way. I spot a waterfall and ask Emmanuel, the driver, to pull over to take pictures. Excited, I jump out of the vehicle to capture the perfect shot. Suddenly we […]
“I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” – John 15:5 When Jesus said nothing, he meant NOTHING! And when we refuse to abide in His ways, we are destined to produce rotten apples. […]
A recent visit to get a hair cut led into a healthy discussion on whether servant leadership can apply to atheists. As I shared the mission of 24/7 Purpose equipping spiritual growth and servant leadership training with my stylist, it sparked a relevant conversation. She said, “That’s so interesting because the topic of servant leadership […]
Around five o’clock am, I woke up with one eye open and fumbled for my iPhone strategically located on my night stand. I blinked a few times to remove the blur cautiously scanning my inbox for emails to alert me of any system issues. The morning inbox determined how hectic my morning would be and […]
I recall being a new Christian. It was exciting, awkward, intimidating, uncertain, and thrilling all at the same time. Unfortunately, my development as a newly baptized Christian delayed for many years because of a gap in answering the question, “now what?” Even though I attended church from my earliest years of childhood, my defining moment […]
It’s so simple to overcome the top two reasons holding back our ultimate life, and it’s hard to comprehend how I could have allowed myself to live in mystery for so long. But, I’m not alone. Today, when I ask, “what is holding you back from living the life that God intended? You know, the […]
Spiritual growth is very similar to successfully running a marathon race, allow me to explain… Many years ago, I trained to run the Disney full marathon race. It was a spontaneous decision with no prior experience unless you count my half-hearted attempt at high-school track and field. I knew that I would never train for […]
The Word for the week comes to us by none other, the Father above. True peace can be achieved through the love of Christ that removes fear and anxiety from our lives. Through God, we can live upon His strength vs. our own and He will carry our burdens. How do we do live in His […]
I hear people often say “I need to find inner peace”. The truth that I hear in that statement is that they are really searching for an external “answer” that will tell us how to acquire inner peace but it isn’t something that we acquire or strive for because that would imply that the gift […]
Recently, I stumbled upon a series by Pastor Andy Stanley that was so remarkable, I had to share it here. This is a teaching that every adult human being should see, in my humble opinion. All of us have seasons in life that involve starting over in some capacity. This unique series speaks to the life trials […]
My field…where I’m called to serve, is below my feet and I walk in His Grace serving this little space answering His call hour by hour, person by person, task by task in Divine service. Tomorrow might bring a new calling but tomorrow may never come so I prepare thoughtfully for tomorrow while fulfilling each […]
