The Real Reason You May Be Lacking Confidence

0

This is a little-known secret about me, but I really struggle with confidence. I always have. People assume that because I am on stage and a leader in some circles that I do not struggle with confidence. However, I would say it is my biggest weakness. By God's grace, I am getting through and I have some great voices in...

That Hunk of Wood

0

In 2002 I was speaking at an event in Ocean City, Maryland where my friend, Ron Hutchcraft, was also speaking. The second night of the event was the night that we had all been praying for; it was the night that Ron was going to share the gospel message.  We were all living with anticipation and hope that many...

Amazed By Christ, Changed Forever

It was a discouraging morning. Peter, James and John had been fishing all night and come back empty handed. As a fisherman, there is nothing that will suck the wind out of your sails more than having an unsuccessful fishing trip. Often when you are discouraged (or even slightly embarrassed), the last person you want to talk to, yet...

In the ancient times of the New Testament, one way to make money was to sell things in the open-air markets in the village. You could sell the fruits of your crops, livestock, pottery and many other goods. Those who sold pottery would take time to diligently preparing an inventory of pottery to sell at the market. However, in...

We’ve all got ‘em – those secret mistakes we never want anyone to know. The things we delight in when we are in private, but would die of embarrassment if they ever came public. You know what I’m talking about, don’t you? Unless you are a superhero — or at least superhuman — you’re probably ashamed of something. There’s a...

The Secret to Trusting God When You Can’t Feel Him

So Close . . . And Yet So Far I sat down on the thin cushion of the airline seat, stuck between two oversized, malodorous men. I had requested an aisle seat, but like everything else in my life at that time, something went wrong. It was a rough season of traveling the country speaking at camps, churches, and youth events,...

Six Ways to Stop Thinking Fearful Thoughts

If you grew up in the ‘80s and ‘90s as I did, you’re familiar with the idea of mixtapes.  Mixtapes were a way of creating a compilation of music onto one source that played in any Walkman, car stereo, or boombox. To us back then, mixtapes are what playlists are to us today except with about 100 times the effort....

When Urgent Needs to Wait

0

I’ve heard many strong leaders give this piece of advice; “Don’t let the urgent knock out the important.” While I appreciate that statement, I find it much harder to implement than it seems. Differentiating between the urgent and the important is a task in-and-of itself. The urgent things in my job usually fall under the umbrella of leadership. These are the...

Christ as the Main Priority

0

I have a nerdy confession to make: I love lists. In fact, I love making lists that are color-coded, categorized, and checked-off, one at a time. I have even tried to live my life according to a list that looks something like this: One: God Two: Family Three: Church Four: Friends… and the list goes on However, I’m realizing I can’t live my life...

Why Waiting for the Right Moment May be Wrong

Sometimes we hesitate, but God demands we keep moving.Be honest with yourself for a moment—has there been a time when you knew what you were supposed to do, but you stalled? Perhaps it was something God was calling you to do, but you didn’t want to do it. Maybe it was something you needed to do for your marriage,...
