Ignorance is Bliss.


Her name is Malak. And it means “angel”.

Clichés are a lot of fun, and this one is no exception.  I’m sure you’ve heard a lot of people say this phrase no matter where you are in life.  It’s said about many things and seems to be used less as you grow older, the thought being that you have lost your ignorance and can no longer dwell in the bliss it provides.   Continue reading


Let’s talk about an event coming up that I think you need to get on your calendars.  You may or may not (my bet is on the may not) know that this Wednesday, June 20th, is World Refugee Day.  It is a day to remember the people all over the world who are without homes.

On that note, I would like to introduce you to an amazing non-profit organization that you need to be following.  The name of this group is “Preemptive Love Coalition” and prepare to get emotions down to the tips of your toes.  And if you don’t…prepare to go to the doctor because something is disconnected.

My Jam! Episode 5


Okay friends and freaks, let’s talk music for a minute.  As you have undoubtedly noticed while wandering around my site here, music is a very important facet of my life.  It keeps me going, it’s my fuel.  My relationship with Jesus is the oxygen that gets me up and moving, but music is what fills my tank.  I like to share things with you from time to time that I think you need to be listening to.  Today’s song is definitely one you need to have in your life.

Live Line Devotions.

Good morning friends and freaks!

I wanted to take a couple minutes this morning to let you know why I’ve slowly moved into referring to our live stream devotion series as “Live Line Devotions”.

This is a combination of multiple different references. First of all, they are live stream devotions that you can watch online. So there’s that. However, it is also a nod to the idea of being a livewire. In electric circles, a live wire is “a wire with a flow of electrical current”.

So, we are doing “Live Line Devotions” because we are online, but also because as God’s people we are meant to be alive with the flow of the electricity to be found in the Holy Spirit. And we are meant to be a direct line from our God reaching out to other believers and to the ones who have yet to begin a relationship with Jesus.

And that’s where that came from.

WORD TO THE WISE: Internet, Betta Fish, and Floyd, VA.

Hello everyone! I hope you have all had a blessed week. I also hope you had the opportunity to enjoy the first week of Live Line Devotions. We discussed “Insignificant Sins” and how the little sins we harbor in our lives can cause some big problems when left unchecked. Be sure and check those out by clicking up in the menu bar or going to my YouTube channel! I’m excited about them and what the future holds. But enough about that! Let’s look at this week’s wise words. Continue reading

Responding to Clouds.


The other day, you and I discussed the promise of rain. It is an important thing to think about. This idea that, maybe the storm clouds don’t mean God has abandoned you…but that grace is on the way, God is on the way.

God has been putting that thought on my heart for a while now and this morning He opened it up to me even farther. I was reading this morning from the book of Exodus and a passage jumped out at me.

Social Media Devotions!

I am so excited to announce a new adventure I’m embarking on next week. Starting Monday, June 4th, at 9:00 pm (E.S.T.) I will be live streaming a series of devotions. The current plan is to do a five day live devotion series every other week. That will give me time to prepare the next one between finishing the last one. God has already laid topics on my heart for the first three weeks.

The current plan is for each devotion to last around 12 minutes. I would love it if you share prayer requests through the live chat as we stream. Also, if you don’t feel comfortable sharing something with the entire group of live streamers, please message me privately through this website or any of the social media sites!

This first week will be on the topic of “Insignificant Sin”. We will be looking at some major characters of the Bible who had some minor things that caused massive problems. I have learned a lot preparing for this series and I look forward to seeing what God is going to do with it!

If you want to join, you can find me on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for the live stream. To find me on any of those sites, you can search the names listed in the photo above or click on each one above, it should be a direct link. Also, I will be posting the videos on YouTube the day after the live stream. For example, Monday’s (6/4) video will be available on YouTube on Tuesday (6/5).

The cool thing about live streams is that you can interact through comments. I hope you will tune in on one of the various social media sites and join in the conversation! I also ask that you would share this on the internet and by word of mouth! Let’s see what happens when we let God get involved on the internet!

Be His.
