Are you a worshiper, or is it likely you have chosen to stand with contempt for those who do? “Then King David was told, “The Lord has blessed Obed-edom’s household and everything he has because of the Ark of God.” So David went there and brought the Ark of God from the house of Obed-edom … Continue reading Worshiper or Contemptuous Observer?
I’ve been really drawn lately to the song “This is How I Fight My Battles”. I’ve been listening to Michael W. Smith‘s video over and over again (link below).

So, I have this personal assistant I carry with me all the time… I have decided to use my iPhone to remind me of some important things... Things I want to walk in...

I can't say that I have ever considered this before... But today I have been thinking that a birthday should be a time when we think about and exercise a measure of gratefulness for the idea that God had that resulted in our birth.

It occurs to me... that I need to be an effective trajectory manager. What sort of trajectory are you on?
