Heart So Heavy

My dear friend Amy over at A New Life surprised me the other day by saying she had a poem in mind for Angie, my beautiful amazing love, who is going through a rough spot in life right now. Her heart is so heavy with all things going on. It is my honor and privilege… Continue reading Heart So Heavy

You Can Huff and You Can Puff

This is just such a wonderful post about struggles and trusting God.

If you do not follow Joe you need to. He has such a way with words and the fact he can be inspired by a photo of a lighthouse. Brilliant! He does the same with this powerful photo of an incoming storm…but guess what is coming behind the storm…the LIGHT!

Lighthouse Devotions by JR


“Then I’ll huff, and I’ll puff, and blow your house in!”
– The Big Bad Wolf (The Three Little Pigs)

The lighthouse image above immediately brought to mind a Spanish song I use to sing as a young man at my home church.

Funda tu casa sobre la roca
que Jesucristo te ayudara. //
Vendrá la lluvia, vendrá el viento pero tu casa no caerá. //

Build your house upon the rock
Jesus Christ will help you.
The rain will come, the wind will come
but your house will not fall.

Chances are you’ve heard about the parable of The Wise and the Foolish Builder. It is said that the rain and wind represent erroneous biblical teachings and that building on the rock represents believing and obeying the teachings of Christ.

“Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise…

The Butterfly Effect

Pastor Randy, thank you for this!

This world needs to change…YES! But it will not change because we say it should. It can change IF it sees our need FOR God and then it sees us living it out daily!

Kingdom Pastor

2 Timothy 1:3-7

3 Timothy, I thank God for you—the God I serve with a clear conscience, just as my ancestors did.  Night and day I constantly remember you in my prayers. 4 I long to see you again, for I remember your tears as we parted. And I will be filled with joy when we are together again.5 I remember your genuine faith, for you share the faith that first filled your grandmother Lois and your mother, Eunice. And I know that same faith continues strong in you. 6 This is why I remind you to fan into flames the spiritual gift God gave you when I laid my hands on you. 7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.2 Timothy 1:3-7 (NLT)

OLABS Testimonials: PORN. The MONSTER!

My sister Nash offers us a very powerful look into the MONSTER that is called porn. She offers links to her other posts at the bottom as well as Shelly Luben’s YouTube testimony…a must see!

My Jesus Is Amazing





A terrible monster indeed. So many are falling prey to it without knowing and most are in denial. This is because, they are under the spell this monster. In our generation, coming across sexual stuff is as easy as breathing! I was prey to this monster and it almost ruined my life. But Jesus set me free through the power of the Holy Spirit. Stop feeding this monster if you are hooked to it, less it eats you up completely. But if you have already been consumed by it, Jesus will go to its belly and get you out. He is that AMAZING!


All it took me was one look and I was gone! Completely under the spell of this monster. I stayed away for two years but, the images I had seen did not stay away. I was sucked…
