The Beginner’s Guide to Predicting Your Future: Your Intention Please

Nobody gets lost on purpose. But we often find ourselves in places we never intended. If there’s a disconnect between what you hope to be true in the future and the direction you’re headed now, maybe it’s time to take a closer look at your path. Our direction, not our intention, will determine our destination.
Direction will always trump intention. If you’re willing to trade what seems easy and fun now for what will be satisfying later, you will arrive at your desired destination. After all, the path you choose makes all the difference. August 23, 2020

The Beginner’s Guide to Predicting Your Future: Principle of the Path

We’re all going to end up somewhere in life, but often there’s a disconnect between where we want to end up and the path we choose. So how can we avoid choosing a path that’s guaranteed to get us where we don’t want to be?

Wise people understand that life is connected and that a person’s direction is the best indicator of their ultimate destination. If you want to end up somewhere on purpose, follow Jesus. You will end up somewhere on purpose with purpose. August 16, 2020

Talking Points, Part 2: Choose Sides

Our political views are shaped by a number of variables: our backgrounds, education, and personal experiences to name a few. It’s easy to feel like our view is the right one, but the person beside you is more precious to God than your political view. August 2, 2020

Good Grief: Loving Other Losers

When we experience a loss, we are tempted to minimize it and push past it without truly dealing with the pain. This same temptation is equally present in those around us. They are tempted to minimize their losses, and we’re tempted to support their minimization. But there is a better way, and God wants to use us to help. July 12, 2020

Good Grief: Rest In Peace

When we experience a loss, we often don’t know how to respond. Ultimately, there are only two choices. And our choice will determine what we experience—not just in the present, but for the rest of our lives. We don’t choose what we lose, but we can choose how we respond. July 5, 2020

The Blessing

There is something in all of us that desires affirmation from our dads. If we don’t receive it, we often go looking for it . . . sometimes in all the wrong places. Some of us received this blessing. Some of us didn’t. For some of us, the voice of our fathers is gone. The good news is that we can all receive a blessing from our heavenly Father today, no matter who we are or what our past experiences have been. This could change everything—not only for us, but also for those that follow in our footsteps. June 21, 2020
