I have to say, this one word sure is a good replacement for a list of resolutions that will never be followed through with. Comments closed here; blessings and enjoy!
If you’re like most people, each January goes something like this: You choose a problematic behavior that has plagued you for years and vow to reverse it. In fact, you can probably think of two or three undesirable habits—make that four or five.
Thus begins the litany of imperfections to be perfected commonly known as “New Year’s Resolutions.” All of which are typically off your radar by February.
“My One Word” is an experiment designed to move you beyond this cycle. The challenge is simple: lose the long list of changes you want to make this year and instead pick ONE WORD.
For 2018, my one word is OBEDIENCE which is perfect becuse I know I am not always as obedient as I need to be. And, for that one reason alone, I am really missing out.
“Blessed are all who fear the LORD, who walk in obedience to…

If somebody took a poll of 10 of your acquaintances and asked them the most notable thing about you, how many of them would say: “Oh they really love Jesus!?”
Yes, that is correct. Two humans and King Percy in the living room, and guess who gets the fluffy big recliner? Yep, you guessed it.
The question is not whether or not Jesus is Lord of our lives, because He is; the question is do we accept that and serve Him
I don’t really have anything to say this morning, so just sort of a small update on life, blogging, and Kingdom work is in order.
First, just a small apology to all of my regular readers and commenters; I am sure you have noticed my visits have been sporadic lately. I have tried to keep up on writing, but have not done so well on visiting others. I thank you for hanging in around here despite that.
I am still writing for the Daily Devotional Quarterly for our association, that that seems to take far more time than I anticipated. “Official” writing is pretty time consuming.
I still work way too much at my “real” job. I usually hit the road at 500 AM, and am involved in that work until my last guy goes home for the day, usually around 630 or 700 PM. Then I have end of day performance reports to prepare and analyze.
A few of us have been going down to a local assisted care facility two evenings a week to lead some singing and have a short message, and just visit with some of the folks there.
We are beginning a program of outreach and personal visitation with some folks in our community. Our youth program has really exploded thanks to the efforts of our two youth leaders. The problem is, when we look out on those in church on any given day, that we see those young people….and the older folks like me. There is a huge gap. Finding and filling that gap has been a time consuming thing. It’s a challenge to contact and build relationships with those young parents, and just takes a bit.
One evening a week, my visiting partner and I are about to revitalize our own program of neighborhood visitation. This is just that old fashioned thing where we drive around, knock on doors and say, “HI!.” to people.
Busy I say!
