The first post on the RebornJumpman blog in 9 months... just playing catch up.
In this final post of the series on The Voting Question we are going to look at a number of hot button issues in this election and compare the truth of scripture to the responses of the candidates. This is not meant to be a complete and comprehensive rundown of EVERY issue, but it does … Continue reading The Voting Question Part: 3
Welcome back! If you haven't done so yet, it may be beneficial for you to read/watch The Voting Question Part: 1 before continuing. November 6 is quickly approaching and I had hoped to be further along than I am at this point, but here we go. The Truth of the Matter In part one I … Continue reading The Voting Question Part: 2
Okay, so I am giving in and writing about the great question about who to vote for. Before getting into the candidates themselves I feel it necessary to give my position on the matter of voting. Regarding the Electoral Process One aspect of our Republic is that of a "representative democracy". It has become even … Continue reading The Voting Question Part: 1
I'm unsure how many people out there are enjoy blogging, but if you're like me you probably enjoy it way too much (even if you don't have a lot of followers... if any at all). I actually have about six (6) blogs, four of which I update somewhat regularly. Every time I log in to … Continue reading Discovering the ScribeFire Add-On
A couple of quick stories of how God has been faithful to answer a simple prayer on two occasions recently. It was around 8:15 EST and I was working. It had been a busy night and dispatching drivers had not been the easiest task but it was working out. Suddenly a cross-town run came up … Continue reading It’s the Small Stuff
This song touched my heart tonight. It's really amazing how much has changed over the last several months. God has really come through. I asked him to teach me more about him, and to draw me into a deeper relationship with him and he has. It's interesting; I'd done really well for a couple weeks (or so it felt) and failed over the last two days. I neglected to spend any time in his word and very little in prayer. I don't know why, just got distracted with everything going on this week I guess. But even after just one or two days I feel a hollowness in my heart. I feel empty. I feel weighed down by the hopelessness of this world. Now more than ever I know that I belong to God, and doing his work. I belong in full-time ministry. I just cannot be fulfilled managing budgets, setting schedules, hiring/firing. It's just not how I was made. I was created to care for God's creation. I'm thankful for the freedom that has come and the love that has overcome. I am thankful for way that God has begun transforming my heart. There is just so much more out there than what we have. There is such a higher purpose to work for! I pray that God would use this song for someone else the way he has used it for me. Something big is coming, and I am thrilled to be blessed enough to be part of it.
"Therefore, get rid of all moral filth, and the evil that is so prevalent and humbly accept the word planted in you, that can save you. Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says." - James 1:21-22 I've always liked James. James and Hebrews... now there are two books that won't … Continue reading On Becoming a Man of Action or Doing the Hard Things
I hope whoever, if anyone, is reading this finds the hope I have found, or the encouragement they need. Trust God, and listen. He is speaking.
