Prayfit Daily:

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 […]


Shackles and Heavy Burdens

Way back in the day, I would often incorporate various tools and tactics into my training in order to become stronger, better. One of my favorites was the use of big, heavy-linked chains. Yes, chains. Boy how times have changed. Seen rarely, and often only in shipyards, these chains were massive. Popeye would be so proud. Well, […]


Bring Me To Life

“But about the day or the hour, no one knows, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father knows.” –Matthew 24:36 Read: Matthew 24 Goofing off with Loretta in the truck outside of Trader Joe’s this weekend, we were asking Siri (the male voice) some questions on our phones. Have […]
