Get In Touch


I've been running around like a crazy person lately. Games, practice, kids, travel, etc. I never seem to have the ability to squeeze life into the 24 hrs. that God gives me. It seems that the first thing that gets cut out is my prayer and study time. It's weird how we instantly go ahead and cut out the most important thing. I guess its because God doesn't complain or put up a fight. If I miss practice I get in trouble.  If I don't spend time with my kids they will pout or become distant. If I don't pay my bills the bank will take my house.  If I don't spend time with God he will just wait.  He is always there. No matter how many times I blow Him off or improperly prioritize my life,  He is patient and forgiving and will always be there.
The funny thing is when I give God my firstfruits, there is always more than enough time. When I fellowship with Jesus daily, somehow I always get everything done with time to spare.  God is absolutely counterintuitive. It doesn't make any sense to us and thats because His ways are not our ways.  Thank God. What would happen if I had control of my own life.  I will tell you..... Disaster!
Thank God he loves me enough to not let that happen.

Make it a great week.

Brian, thank you for taking the time to blog your thoughts. You are so right that it can be far too easy to skip time with God for other, less important priorities. Fortunately we do have an amazing God who loves us despite our shortcomings! However, I am FAR happier when I put Him above all.

I read that you may be back in action tonight; play hard but stay healthy! :-)


P.S. Go Caps!

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get irked while people consider worries that they plainly do not
know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the
top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects ,
people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more.
