Gladiator Mindset: All Or Nothing

The Gladiator Mindset

Have you ever known someone who had an all or nothing mindset? I’d like to call it a Gladiator Mindset. Think about a gladiator of Ancient Rome. These men stepped into the arena knowing the only man leaving was the last man standing. He had to be all in. He must have laser focus. His eyes must be keen and aware of everything happening around him. Intent. His intent must be “victory is the only option”. Mindset is the fuel in his veins that bear the fruit and Continue reading

Everything happens in seasons.

I remember there was a season of my life that I had three children playing in Morada Little League simultaneously. The most sensational little league ever in my opinion, but not two of them on the same team. Two boys and my daughter played softball. The home field was just around the block from our home. But softball travelled much so my daughter’s games were all over the place. I remember I would begin to mentally prepare for the schedule and time demand of the Continue reading

Ode To Joy

When I was married I selected the song   “Ode to Joy”, by Ludwig van Beethoven, as my song. You know, the one they play when you walk into the room and up front and say all that scary stuff? I thought the melody to be lovely and free and light...just as joy should be. I didn’t consciously think all of this. I just knew I liked it and it was “different”. I usually don’t enjoy selecting what everybody commonly selects. I have always tended to gravitate to the Continue reading

Essence of Heaven

God’s Grace cannot be trumped by our goodness. His grace is scandalous and pardons what we can’t fix and I think this is a beautiful, but peculiar aspect to His Character.

I love it!

Our obedience is a form of adoration, but it is not the instrument of His portions.

He gives... He gives... He gives....

Because HE Lives!

We may fall... But He will rise!

Doing good and being good are good. But what stirs God's heart is when we love good.

God doesn’t need our effort to advance Himself, but by the power of His love He includes Continue reading
