The Smell of Coffee

I like making coffee in the morning. Smelling that aroma. It fills the room. It let’s everyone know that it’s time to get up and face the day. 

Imagine if we allowed God’s Spirit to fill our lives the same way? Allowed Him to let us know it’s time to face the day. 

Life is better when it starts with a cup of Java. Life is better when it starts with His Spirit even more so. 

At least that’s how I see it,

Gold Medals Are Made Of Sweat!!!

I’m starting to see more and more advertising about the Olympics. Brazil… I’m sure it will be beautiful to watch that culture celebrate with the other nations the best of the best. 

But no one will accidentally become the best. No world records will be broken by ‘taking a stab at it’… ok… maybe fencing. 

It takes effort! Dedication! Determination! Excelling needs a passion to succeed. 

Not much is different in our Christian lives. We succeed by making every day count. Every moment count. Making our lives count. 

At least that’s how I see it,

Get Over It!

I think we all have things in our life that we wished we had never done. Mistakes. Bad choices. Failed attempts to do the right thing.

But too often we hang the mantle of our purpose on the coat rack of our past instead of discovering the potential of our purpose by wearing it with courage and conviction.

At least that’s how I see it,

PS – Here is a clip from Kerry’s message a couple of weeks ago addressing this very thing. Enjoy.

 

Coming Home Is Always Shorter

This past Sunday I sat and listened to Kerry give her testimony… her “Love Story” as she called it. I had never heard the story of the Prodigal Son that way before. It still is affecting me almost a week later.

We often focus on how ‘far’ we have moved away from God rather than how ‘close’ we are able to come back. We forget that He is waiting for us to return back to Him and then starts running to ‘meet us’. HE is the one who shortens the journey back to Him.

At least that’s how I see it,

PS – We launched a new series for our YouTube Channel called “McK and Mike” and we continued the conversation from Sunday. If you want to hear Kerry’s message you can click on this link right here. Enjoy.

 

 

Speak Into The Next Generation

Who are the mentors in your life? Who shaped you? Who made you who you are?

Now, who is going to say the same thing about you? Who is going to say or write ‘your’ name when asked the same question?

I hope some people mention me. Not to praise me or elevate me… but to bring meaning and purpose to my life. That somehow I passed on the torch to the next generation and made it better.

At least that’s how I see it,

Which Man Will I Be Today?

I have to be honest with you. I have personal pep talks every day.

No, I don’t look in the mirror and yell “YOU CAN DO IT!!!!” like some crazed Rob Schneider with a sombrero on my head! No, every day I need to remind myself of who I am, and Whose I am.

I know each day (each moment actually), I can be one of two men: the man whose desires are momentary and probably self-seeking, or the man whose desires are to honour and serve the One who loves me and has purposed a greater life in me.

So I choose (or at least attempt to choose) the man who God desires me to be… knowing that He who has done GREAT things in my life, has planned even GREATER if I choose to follow Him.

At least that’s how I see it,
