5 Day Fast & 5 AM Prayer

At the beginning of March 2016, I started fasting with five other men from church. We met each morning at 5 AM for discipleship and prayer. 5 AM gave each of us time to start our day before work or other responsibilities got in the way. We planned the rules of our fast on Monday morning. Rules No Solid Food. That’s

March Sadness

For awhile my bracket this year in the March Madness ESPN Tournament was ranked high. I was getting so many right. Now it looks like I am on the downhill… I guess everyone is though. Lately I have just felt sad. Not because I picked SF Austin to beat Florida and they didn’t even make it to the Sweet Sixteen,

Should We Rearrange The Kingdom?

A few weeks ago a pastor at my church posted this on his facebook… “God has called us to BUILD His Kingdom…NOT rearrange it” That put into words what I have been thinking for a long time. In fact, I wrote a post awhile ago about how scary churches can be… A church is a group of believers used to

Winter 2014

I just realized I haven’t posted in awhile. Sorry. The start of 2014 has been all about winter. Yesterday I drove our tractor out of our barn while the weather reported -40 degree windshield. Was not fun. I had to plow out my driveway and drive to the hog barn and plow out the hog barn. The only thing is that

I will pay in blood … but not my own.

We all need deeper meaning. A deeper relationship or a deeper thought. Something that is said way down deep is more meaningful. We all are hard-headed and ignore the basics because the basics are not as deep as we want. Sometimes we are unhappy with listening to people talk about God because its “too basic” or its a “beginners class.”

Comfort & Chaos

Years ago I realized I cannot plan my life. I wanted to fulfill dreams that I desired and wishes that I wanted reality. I loved planning my life because in my mind, everything is perfect. In my mind, everything is exactly in place. In my mind, the thoughts in my head are exactly what I want my life to be

Something I am struggling with is the word church. I am moving in a few months and will be leaving the current church family I have. I have talked with a few close friends about this, and I am not the only one with this struggle. Now it seems there is a church ever 2 miles in Dayton. In Defiance,

What Do You Need?

On a day in the year 2000 there was free popcorn for moviegoers in Chicago. They were handed a free bucket of popcorn that was popped 5 days ago. If you have ever had old popcorn, you can relate to how bad the taste is. It has a squeak to its crunch and its flavor is gone. Stale like styrofoam peanuts. Everyone

Behind “Minutes”

Today my sister releases her first single off her Bekah Bradley EP. The song is dear to me for lots of reasons. The main one … I wrote it. A few months ago I began writing in my living room. I had a melody in my head and chords at my finger tips. I began writing down these lyrics: Tears
