Are We of the Truth?

We know love by this, that He laid down His life for us; and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoever has the world’s goods, and sees his brother in need and closes his heart against him, how does the love of God abide in him? Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth. We will know by this that we are of the truth, and will assure our heart before Him in whatever our heart condemns us; for God is greater than our heart and knows all things. Beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, we have confidence before God; and whatever we ask we receive from Him, because we keep His commandments and do the things that are pleasing in His sight. This is His commandment, that we believe in the name of His Son Jesus Christ, and love one another, just as He commanded us. The one who keeps His commandments abides in Him, and He in him. We know by this that He abides in us, by the Spirit whom He has given us.
1 John 3:16‭-‬24 NASB1995

But Then the Rain Came

Running along the pace set in

meters to kilometers, feet to miles

muscles pulling oxygen from each breath

your mind is focused, and your heart is steady pumping

but then, then rain came

From where it came, you do not know

as if from tempest far off, it has come straight for you

Do you give up, do you turn back?

Or do you seek shelter in determination to reach your goal?

Press on, run the race, until there is no strength or breath from Him received

For the race you run is not your own

But with purpose you were created and so shall you run!

What is F3 – Fitness, Fellowship, Faith? A Podcast

My First Marathon Training – Tulsa Route 66 Marathon OneChristianMan

What is F3 – Fitness, Fellowship and Faith. F3 nationally and F3 Northwest Arkansas is a free men’s fitness group that helps men out of the rut of life they are in and helps them reinvigorate and become a High Impact Man (HIM).

Monday Motivation: Move

It’s time to move further and achieve more than you ever thought was possible.

Determine in your heart and mind to reach your goal and move.

Sometimes if we stay where we are to preserve what we have, that’s a bigger failure in life.

The failure of missed opportunity and wasted time.


Are you happy where you are, have you succeeded in reaching your highest potential?


1 Corinthians 9: 26-27

“26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize.”


You need a goal and a plan to follow to get there. We aren’t meant to aimlessly run, but to set a goal and reach it and then set a new one as we run further toward our greatest potential.

Is Your Ship Being Battered?

You may be enduring a contrary wind in your life. On top of the already difficult life changes due to Covid19.

A contrary wind battering the boat doesn’t mean that God didn’t command you to set sail.

‘Immediately He made the disciples get into the boat and go ahead of Him to the other side, while He sent the crowds away. After He had sent the crowds away, He went up on the mountain by Himself to pray; and when it was evening, He was there alone. But the boat was already a long distance from the land, battered by the waves; for the wind was contrary. And in the fourth watch of the night He came to them, walking on the sea. ‘ Matthew 14:22-25

Immediately “He made” the disciples get into the boat!

Do you think Jesus didn’t know a storm was brewing?

He knew.

Yet, He also knew that nothing would stand in His way when He was ready to get them.

Where are you? Are you worried you are too far away for Him to reach you?

My Jesus created the winds and the waves. And He holds my life in His hand even when I am standing right here on dry land.

I’ll praise Him either way.
