Prayfit Daily:

Me and My Drum

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, working as unto the Lord, not for men.” –Colossians 3:23 Read: Colossians 3 Turns out PrayFit has a theme song — a song that sums up PrayFit perfectly. My wife and friends might guess it’s a Rocky montage, but alas, no. I have one better. The Little Drummer Boy. […]


Our Place in the Son

The expression on her face says it all. During the Summer, Loretta and I saw the announcement of Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks to hit theaters this December, and well, it’s been circled on our calendar ever since. Not only that, but because Mary Poppins and Saving Mr. Banks were filmed at Disney Studios in Burbank, […]


Seeing Words

Blessed are they that hear the word of God, and keep it. (Luke 11:28) Christian vocalist Mark Harris has a wonderful line in one of his songs that goes, “Preach Christ, even if it means use words.” Plainly put, our actions to an unbelieving world matter more than what we say. I thought of that line […]


Be Born In Us

“When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.” — Matthew 2:10 Read: Matthew 2 If you missed Christmas Presence yesterday, we talked about the shepherds and their efforts to see the newborn King. We agreed that their best was all they had to offer Him — our pacesetters if you will, and […]


Christmas Presence

“So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger.” –Luke 2:16 “What do you give to someone who has everything?” That’s a common question asked year after year by a countless number of people.  But what do you give someone who is everything? Well, that original question […]


The Land of Misfits

“But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.” –1 Corinthians 1:27 Read: 1 Corinthians 1 If he were your neighbor, you’d move. If choosing teams, he’d be the last one picked. Without a doubt, on the island of […]


Little Is Much

I was in maybe the first or second grade, and Mom had given me a dollar to go shopping for Daddy at our school’s make-shift Christmas store. I remember walking the narrow aisles, squeezing the life out of that dollar like it was something really precious. And I suppose it was, because it represented my […]


Advent

We know the story, but we love it. Two thousand years ago, God made an unexpected trip. Because we were unable to get to Him, He came to us. God left Heaven’s hall for Bethlehem’s stall. He then climbed out of his crib and onto the cross for your sins and mine. Imagine, God with […]


Friday Recap

Neat week. Monday we reminded ourselves that it’s more important to have a healthy conscience than it is to be health conscious. Tuesday, Siri gave a glorious answer to an impossible question. Wednesday, we learned that when it comes to chains of life, the load is lightest the closer you get to the floor. And yesterday, […]


All Things New

“Good luck, Jimmy.” And after a handshake on Friday, I walked out of physical therapy for the last time. Time flies right? After six months, the surgical site and surrounding tissues are as healed as can be. Doctors say they’re not worried about the artificial disks or fusions, but they’re more concerned about preserving and […]
