    Not All Heroes Wear Capes

    There are people who serve in the shadows. People who don’t have any fancy titles or accolades but continue to do their work faithfully. People who allow God to entrust them with destinies that seem far greater than their own and pour their all into them. People who allow others to stand on their shoulders and be in the spotlight even if it means they never get any recognition for it. They’re heroes in my view. Unassuming and often overlooked, but heroes nonetheless. This is probably why I find it interesting that when most people talk about their dreams and desires in life, there’s an element of recognition attached to…

    Fired Up – October 2018

    Pastor Appreciation Month

    This leadership post comes at the beginning rather than the end of the month since October is Pastor Appreciation Month. It’s not something that’s widely celebrated (at least not in this part of the world) but I’m hoping to change that a little. I’ve always found it ironic how quick we are to drag people under the bus at the slightest allegation of failure but celebrating those who have faithfully supplied into our lives over the years while they’re still alive to hear it is like pulling teeth. Instead of the usual leadership thoughts I’d normally share, I make this request: this month, find a way to appreciate those God…

    Walk Away

    Jesus’ teachings when He walked on the earth were full of controversy. (For all intents and purposes, they still are.) One of the more controversial things He spoke about was turning the other cheek. “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’ But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.  And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well. – Matthew 5:38-40 NIV Turning the other cheek is about as counter-cultural as you can get in the kind of world…

    Monday Blues

    At the height of one of his greatest victories, Elijah suffered one of his worst moments of internal defeat that was so bad he wanted to die. Discouragement is something we all have to contend with at one point or another in our lives. Often, it will hit us when we least expect it. So what do you do when life happens to you as a believer especially in the workplace? Here are a couple of practical ways I’ve used to get through my rough days:   My tears have been my food day and night, while they say to me all the day long, “Where is your God?” –…
