Our First Response To Everything

As I’ve been going through an in-depth study of the Book of James, I’ve learned a tremendous amount of how living for the Lord looks like.

Joyful Through Trials

This morning is a unique morning. It’s a unique morning for me, for a few reasons: I woke up early… like, really early. I don’t normally wake up until about 8:15 am on weekdays, and about 9:30 am on the weekends. I woke up today at about 4:00 am. WOW. I woke up feeling good… sadly, […]

It’s interesting how so many things can affect us in ways we don’t expect. Humans are both material and spiritual beings, which means we […]

How God is Described in Proverbs

The Book of Proverbs contains 31 chapters of wisdom for our daily lives. A good portion of it was written by King Solomon, the wisest and most successful man in all of human history. I would say that since he was the wisest man on earth, he has some pretty good insights to teach us […]

Where To Get Help In The Book of Psalms

God’s Word is filled with wisdom, instruction, hope, encouragement, history, proof, warnings, joy, and so much more. As Scripture says, it has all things pertaining to life and godliness (2 Peter 1:3). The key word in this passage is all. It has all we need to navigate this life and the life to come. We just simply […]

Using A Gaming Mouse to Increase Productivity

After using it for a couple of weeks for that purpose, I thought: why not use this for my regular work and help boost my productivity? So, I got down to business and I’ve been experimenting with some shortcuts, keystrokes, etc. to help […]
