Missing the Obvious

I'm sure for God, it must be painful to hear us pray for something that was delivered last month but we do not yet see it.

Are You Taking Off Work?

To listen to the audio of this blog you can Click Here!

I get the puzzled look from some people about my working so much. In there eyes maybe I work too much; in my eyes it seems that I could always do more.

I am the oldest, so it was just us three at the time; me, my mom, and my dad. I can catch little glimpses in my memory sometimes sitting in a baby carrier looking up at my mom and dad. I must have been only a few months old at the time and I can only guess that because I’m in a baby carrier looking up…

Stop Putting Out Fires

To listen to the audio of this blog you can Click Here!

I think it used to be my job to put out fires. Though I was hired to implement projects, or support certain systems there was always a fire to put out; there was always something that went wrong.

What I figured out later that what was wrong was my perspective; my attitude. What was wrong was my inability to see…

"Both are Needed" - Daily Insights -- May 31, 2010

Faith without preparation is not the best use of anyone’s time.

Roger Staubach said that “spectacular achievements come from unspectacular preparation”.

While faith is the tipping point that separates the champions from the contenders, when you take the time to fully prepare yourself, not just spiritually, but also emotionally, mentally, and physically, you

are at the peak of readiness and can be used by God in the fullest way


Failure to prepare,…

Selflessly Serve Yourself

What is it for a man to give a life to someone, when he has none to give? Sometimes, we find ourselves wanting to serve so much that we end up biting off way more than we can chew. Usually it’s the result of outside influences or what is subliminally expected of us through the social norm to do things beyond our current grasps; and as a future result we end up doing nothing.…

Readiness is the key that turns the lock of opportunity. -jb

Can you remember the last time you traveled? Before you left, there were certain things you needed to do to prepare yourself for a successful journey.

If you are believing God to take you to a new destination, wouldn't the same concept of preparation and readiness be true here?
