Training Wheels

“Nothing can get between us and God’s love because of the way Jesus our Master has embraced us.” –Romans 8:38 Read: Romans 8 On my way to a meeting yesterday, PrayFit V.P. Eric Velazquez shared with me one of those moments. You know, a pivotal, unforgettable snapshot in time. The kind that leaves dads like […]

Life’s Greatest Pleasure

“People will be lovers of themselves.” –2 Timothy 3:2 Read: 2 Timothy 3 I happened to run across one of those motivational posters this weekend. You know, the kind with those powerful statements meant to inspire you to be all you can be. Well, even though it wasn’t exactly new to me, this one caught […]

Glowing With Health

“Rise and anoint him; this is the one.” –1 Samuel 16:12 Read: 1 Samuel 16 Believe it or not, I used to sing solos in church and school. Growing up in a musical family (on mom’s side) I guess you could say it was in my blood. Too funny: my first solo in the 4th […]

Those Who Are Listening

“Yes, Lord, your servant is listening.” –1 Samuel 3:10 Read: 1 Samuel 3 I’ve been taking meetings this week for a PrayFit project we’re working on, and I find myself praying for God’s will and protection more than I find myself praying for the project to actually happen. Ever been in such a place? I […]

Life is a Subhead

“Those who say they live in God should live their lives as Jesus did.” –1 John 2:6 Read: 1 John 2 Subheads are critical. Ever had to write one? Well, over the years, Eric and I have agonized over our share. For those who may not know, a subhead is that little, tiny sentence under […]

If You’re Thirsty

“But those who drink the water I give will never be thirsty again.” –John 4:14 Read: John 4 Remember drinking from the water hose outside as kids? Nothing better, right? After football games, baseball practice or riding bikes, we had the kind of unbearable thirst only known to children. Whoever got there first knew to […]

The Home Of Your Dreams

“I was glad when they said unto me, ‘Let us go to the house of the Lord.’” –Psalm 122:1 Read: Psalm 122 It’s the home of your dreams. White picket fence, freshly cut grass, backyard with a grill. It’s that kind of home. When you close your eyes and grin, you’re swinging on that front […]

The Island of Grace

“He refreshes my soul…” –Psalm 23:3 Read: Psalm 23 I can’t think of a better place to still our hearts and minds than on the island of grace. Be it in the fitness industry or in the aisle at your local supermarket, the water can get choppy, leaving you bobbing in the wake of someone’s […]

No Mas: Part II

He saved others, why doesn’t He save Himself? Some of those at the foot of the Cross stood in absolute wonder. And why not? They had velvet rope access to the miracles. They saw the blind see, the lame walk and the mute talk. They were firsthand eyewitnesses to His power and might. And yet there […]

No Mas: Part I

No more. I don’t want to fight anymore. The 1980 rematch between Sugar Ray Leonard and Roberto Duran will forever be remembered by two words: No mas. For those who don’t know the story, Roberto Duran, the toughest and most relentless fighter of his era decided he was done fighting midway through the eighth round […]
