Keep Looking Ahead By Faith

By faith Moses, when he had grown up, refused to be known as the son of Pharaoh’s daughter. He chose to be mistreated along with the people of God rather to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a short time. He regarded disgrace for the sake of Christ as of greater value than the treasures of Egypt, because he was looking ahead to his reward | Hebrews 11:24-26

Moses chose the hard life rather than the convienant due to the fact he was looking beyond where he was to where he was going. This reminds me, sins pleasure is for a short time and leaves one left out of an eternal reward. Choosing your way based on the sake of Christ keeps you looking ahead. So, keep looking ahead by faith not accepting that which is convienant but choose the greater reward.


Today I Begin Fulfilling Preaching Responsiblities For A While at Hardeeville COG

I am looking forward to a great day. Starting this Sunday Morning I will be filling in with the preaching responsibilities at Hardeeville Church of God, in Hardeeville SC until further notice. It is rather a difficult time for the Church and for my family. My Uncle is the Pastor their and he is taking some time off, a sabbatical if you will, due to the fact my Aunt is battling cancer and is in the final stages. It is definitely a difficult time for everyone right now. Unless something miraculous takes place we will lose her company with us here, but heaven will gain a Gem. I am really praying for wisdom and guidance in preaching while I am filling in like never before.

7 Steps to Create The Copyright Symbol © Easily On A PC

I have always wondered how to incorporate the copyright logo © into a file. In word documents on the PC all you have to do is open parenthesis “(“ then the letter “c” and then close parenthesis “)” and then the space bar and… bam…you get ©. However, on my blog I found it hard to do. After doing some searching I came across a pretty simple way to get this copyright sign onto the clip board where all I have to do is paste it where I need it. For instance, here on my wordpress blog I created a text box widget in the footer and placed the copyright using the following 7 steps.

Step 1

Open the Start menu located at the bottom left of the screen.

Step 2

Click All Programs and then open Accessories

Step 3

Open the folder labeled System Tools

Step 4

Click to open Character Map

Step 5

Double Click Desired Character

Step 6

Click the Copy Button (this copies the character to your clipboard)

Step 7

Open a document, blog post etc. and Right Click the mouse button and Paste your very own copyright symbol © where you need it.

I know these are kind of long steps but I hope it helps. Did you find this article useful?

Discussion On Parenting : Discipline And A 3 Year Old

Last night was a first for Chanelle and I. We had to leave church due to Peyton acting out. Unfortunantly there isnt a nursery available on Wednesday nights for the Bible Study so we had to take him home. Sometimes 3yr olds just want to do there own thing and nothing else matters. Kind of reminds me of our relationship with God. We know how we should live and act, but then, we go against what is expected and live out our own way. in return the road is much harder.

That brings me to the subject of discipline. I am sure most parents have said…”WE WONT HAVE THAT KID.” Yeah, Chanelle and I have said that too. Now, we have THAT KID.

So how do we respond when discipline is needed? What is the proper way to discipline children in a Godly way?

Filling In

Starting this Sunday I will be filling in at Hardeeville Church of God with the Preaching responsibilities until further notice. It’s going to change up my weekly routine just a bit and there are somethings that I was use to having time for that will have to wait in order to make sure I am prepped and ready to go each Sunday. I am thankful to be able to help out but hate the circumstances in which I get to fill in. I am really needing to hear from God over the next few weeks like never before.

A Coffee Pot And Prayer

It was good to have some coffee this morning at the house before I left for work. Last Monday my coffee pot died, but thanks to some awesome friends who gave us a new one I was able to make my own and not purchase it by the cup or didn’t have to buy a new coffee maker yet. As I sip on my coffee I am making sure to send some prayers up for them. Thanks Matt and Mindy, continue pursuing.

Sunday Morning Thought

Its a Summer Sunday Morning with alot of things that we could be doing today. We could head to the beach, catch up on some yard work, take the boat out, or even spend the morning getting ready for a family and friend cookout. Or, we could…Head to Church, connect with other believers, see lives changed, and learn how to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus Christ as a corperate body. As much stuff that there is that I would love to do today, I know there is one thing, above others, that I need…Jesus. I wonder how many others are planning their day around Christ. Just a thought.

Jury Duty

Tomorrow will only be my second time to have to report for Jury Duty. They say it is our civil duty as Americans to take part and stand in as Jurors. Our civil duty allows us the opportunity to miss work, and only if our employers are generous will we get paid for being out. However, since we are using our liberty as Americans and being forced to show up or either be held in contempt, at least they are going to give us 10 dollars a day plus milage, insert sarcasim. Dont get me wrong, I really don’t mind serving and will go there dressed for success and be proud that I get to take part. It would have been nice if they would have sent my summons to the right address though…yep, it ended up at my previous address but at least it was my Moms house so she was able to get it to me. Now I just need to remember to let them know about the possible mix up and make sure my current address is on file.

A Guys Evening With My Son

Peyton and I enjoyed a guys evening today while Chanelle and Julianna went over to a baby shower at a friends house. The agenda for us was the park downtown and then a stop by burger king for dinner. Never knew I could have so much fun with a three and a half year old, this parenting thing keeps on getting more fun everytime I turn around. However, now as I write this post Peyton has taken over our bed due to the fact he is terrified of storms and it just happens to be thundering. This is another one of those times that as inconvienent as it is at the moment, one day we will look back and wish they were young again. So, instead of wishing he wasnt so afraid I will enjoy the fact he finds safety just being with Mom and Dad.
