Lessons Learned in 33 Years

Well, tomorrow is my birthday and I will be turning 34. To some of you reading this that will seem old and to others, it will seem young, and that’s ok. My age doesn’t really matter for what I want to share today. I am approaching entering this new year of my life sort of like I prepare for New Year’s Day.

I was reading in chapter 5 a few days ago about the synagogue ruler named Jairus who came to Jesus because his daughter was sick. While he was with Jesus some men came and told Jairus that his daughter was dead and there was no point in bothering Jesus about it anymore. What would be the outcome of…

Spending Time With God

Spending Time With God

At the beginning of this week as part of my Fitness Challenge I committed to waking up in time to exercise, what this also included was getting up early enough to spend quiet time with God.
