QTMs for 6/11/16: OKAY, JESUS – WHAT’S WITH THAT? – PART II

If you’re one of those impatient, self-important types who thinks your time is too valuable to go back and read Part 1, believing yourself bright enough to know what I’ve written leading up to this point, you shouldn’t be reading this in the first place.  Go away.  This will do you no good.   I … Continue reading »

QTMs for 6/10/16: OKAY, JESUS – WHAT’S WITH THAT?

The Gospels tell that You were always going off someplace to pray.  Conference center.  Coffee shop.  Private retreat. Mountain cabin.  Peter’s RV.  Solitude and relative quiet was what You were after.  You were – are – a praying kind of guy. So we, through Peter and John and the lads, asked you to teach us … Continue reading »

I can do anything with today I choose because it’s mine.  I have an exclusive on today.  I own it. I can spend these next 18 hours any way I want.  It’s up to me.  God has the ability to force events and encounters in my life today that can shape what I do.  What He … Continue reading »

QTMs for 6/6/16: WHO WERE THOSE MEN?

A few months ago they were high school kids hunting a summer job.  Today they were men hunting enemies intent on destroying our way of life. Today we remember an unforgettable army of between 130,000 and 156,000 young men.  They averaged only a year or two older than my grandson, wearing U.S., Canadian, British and Free … Continue reading »

QTMs for 6/5/16: FINISHING BEATS STARTING

I appreciate thoughts that slow me down. This is Sunday morning.  Atypical for the rest of the week, but totally the same for my Sundays.  With the exception that I’m not yet dressed for worship.  When one sings on the praise team and customarily wears black and whatever, the black tends to welcome this or … Continue reading »

#26: NO TIME LIKE NOW

The best time to start is now. You can finish preparing as you go.  Don’t give in to the convenient dodge that you’re not quite ready; that you don’t have everything you need to do it right. You’re never going to be completely ready, you’ll never have everything you need, and getting at it is … Continue reading »

#25: DREAMS UNLIMITED, STEPS REASONABLE

“DREAM BIG, MAN!”                     Absolutely!  Ever listen in when someone asks a 9-year-old what they want to be?  There’s NOTHING he can’t do, NOTHING out of bounds for her, zero they can’t accomplish.  Great scientist?  Army General?  World-class chef?  Navy Seal?  Neurosurgeon?  Astronaut?  Astrophysicist?  Part of first Mars colony?  SURE!  No lid, no … Continue reading »

QTMs for 6/1/16: NO TIME LIKE THE PRESENT

Being ‘in the moment’ is going away, and you’re helping make it happen. Growing up, I was used to seeing my mom and dad stop and visit for a few minutes with just about anyone.  Farmer’s Market where we got produce and bread.  Chin’s Chinese restaurant where we’d eat once or twice a month.  Safeway … Continue reading »
