It was the first time I’ve fasted as a means for practicing a spiritual discipline first and physical health benefits second.

You need to do whatever you need to for you to know your mind can handle it. Once you can say with zero doubt that you can complete a marathon, you can! Tactically it’s not that hard to run the 26 miles. But you need the right motivation and the right reason to not quit […]

Psalm 37 – What is Permanent?

Psalm 37 says: “Do not fret because of those who are evil or be envious of those who do wrong; for like the grass they will soon wither, like green plants they will soon die away.” v1&2 So if these die, what remains? What is permanent? Looking at the rest of the Psalm gives hints […]

My Favorites from 2019

I discovered a lot of new content this year, and yes on a few of these I am way late to the party. But what can I say? I always seem to go left when the majority goes right and right when the majority goes left!  “If you only read the books that everyone else […]
