The Kids!

There are so many hurting kids in this world.  So many kids who are crying out for help.  Crying out for love.  Crying out for a listening ear.  There are so many kids in this world who are Fatherless, orphaned, hopeless, desperate, and lost.  There are so many kids who are just simply, confused.  Trying […]

The Enemy

The greatest resistance in my life is fear.  The greatest enemy in my life is fear.  The greatest obstacle in my life is fear.  The greatest opportunity for me each day, is overcoming my fear.  Fear is real.  Fear isn’t real.  It all depends on how you perceive fear.  How you accept fear into your […]

My Road

Up ahead the road turns.  Where does it turn to?  That, I do not know.  All I know is that I have to continue down this road.  This is the road I have chosen to take.  This is the less-traveled road.  The road that most choose not to take.  The exact reason I chose this […]

Hold Back

My fears want to hold me back.  My anxiety wants to hold me back.  My mind wants to hold me back.  I want to give in.  I want to let up.  I want to be normal.  But I can’t.  And I won’t.  I have to keep going.  I have to press on.  I have to […]

It’s not about me

It’s not about me.  Not even a little bit.  I wasn’t put on this earth to serve myself.  I wasn’t put on this earth to create a better life for me.  Yes, I firmly believe it is crucial we take care of ourselves, our mind, our body, and our spirit.  This will only allow us […]

Youth

I want to have a youth camp.  A camp for troubled youth.  A camp focused on physical training.  A camp focused on leadership.  A camp that focuses on discipline, hard work, and humility.  I want to bring in men who are living examples.  Men who have done, and continue to do hard things, difficult things.  […]

Flawed

Why do you want to try to be like someone else?  I found myself often in my youth trying to be like someone else.  I would try to dress, talk, and act like other people.  For one reason or another, I would want to be someone different from who I was.  I attribute a lot […]

Better

I have to get better.  I absolutely have to get better.  I realize my insufficiency.  I realize my weakness.  I realize that I am but a mere created being.  Here today, gone tomorrow.  My life is a gift.  I do not have it all together.  I do not have it all figured out.  There is […]

?

Who do I want to be?  Who do I want to become?  What do I want to be remembered for?  What defines my life?  Questions to ask.  Questions to ponder.  Questions to answer.  Today is my day.  My day to decide who I want to be.  My day to decide who I want to become.  […]

Don’t Quit

Keep going.  Keep moving forward.  Continue to take one step in the right direction each day.  Don’t give up.  Don’t quit.  You never know what today may bring.  You never know what may be around the next turn, around the next corner, through that next door.  Life ebbs and flows.  Yes, we will experience difficulties, […]
