Yes, in a tennis match love means “nothing”—–15-love, 30-love, 40-love. But to a Christian and a HIM (High Impact Man) love is everything. Jesus commands us to love one another. Sometimes this is not easy to love others who are not like us, don’t treat us well, or don’t believe the same as we do. Matthew 22:37 Jesus was asked which commandment was the greatest. He replied “love the Lord your God with all your heart, your soul, and your mind. And the second is like it, love your neighbor as yourself”. How do we love God with all our heart? Obey His commands, spend time in His word, spend time meditating and in prayer. How do we love our neighbor? Look for opportunities to be the hands and feet of Jesus. Just for today make the decision to be less selfish and more Christ-like—–encourage others, engage with those around you and help them however you can. Serve others, love on your wife and kids, love on your parents and friends—-love them well!!!!

We all carry a burden that keeps us from performing at our full potential.  Identify it, acknowledge it, and then release it to your father so that you may run the race set before you with passion and purpose!

The stars were glimmering in all their majesty this morning as I drove through the gates of splendor at the Asylum. The warm fuzzies quickly dissipated with the collision of my face to the famous East Tennessee Humidity. Even at 5am, it’ll knock your teeth out.

Proverbs 25:28 “A man without self-control (discipline) is like a city broken into and left without walls.” Remember the importance of self control. Without it we are like a broken down city, our lives are vulnerable to attack and decay. Pursue the Holy Spirit’s help in overcoming temptation and having self control

Count-o-Rama & Name-o-Rama

After Red Writer, our Q, was on all fours “calling the buffalo” during dealers choice abs… he was reminded of a verse that he shared in the BOM:
Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly in my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest on me. That is why, for the sake of Christ, I delight in weaknesses, in insults, in hardships, in persecutions, in difficulties. For when I am weak, then I am strong.
