From the Nameless & Faceless Into The CHOSEN

From the Nameless & Faceless Into The CHOSEN

  Without question, we are living in some of the most turbulent times perhaps any of us have ever seen.  There has been a great shaking taking place all across the world, and as Christians, we too are experiencing that shaking. However, this shaking is bringing about a great awakening within the Body of Christ.  In my lifetime, I’ve never seen a greater need than now for the gospel to advance powerfully forward through surrendered sons and...

4 Easy Steps To Level Up Your Life

4 Easy Steps To Level Up Your Life

I grew up on games! Some of my favorite times were around activities that involved competition, teamwork, the struggle, the pep talk, and winning. Maybe you remember games like Super Mario Bros. which first appeared on the blocky First Edition Gameboy that had a green screen where you play as a plumber who happens to have these extraordinary superpowers and your mission was to save Princess Peach from the clutches of Bowser who has captured her...

I Choose Joy

I Choose Joy

Covid19. Coronavirus. Quarantine. Stay at home orders. Safer at home orders. Masks. Blah, Blah, Blah. If you are like me, perhaps you are getting sick and tired of these words and more importantly getting sick of the overall situation we find ourselves in. These words and the situation they have put us in these past few months can attack our joy. I have not found much joy in just being home every day and not going anywhere. Tricia and I were...

The Love Box

The Love Box

Years ago, someone gave me one of the most memorable gifts I have ever received. It was a small brass box filled with brightly colored loose papers. The very top one said, “l love you today because....” The papers beneath were empty. I received the gift at a time when there was a lot of pain in our home. It was given at a time when my family was simply not in unity. With the box, we were given instructions on how to use it. Each day, we were to...

See For Yourself

See For Yourself

Our staff at BridgeWay has a time of soaking in God’s presence each Tuesday morning. It’s a wonderful time for us to gather together as a staff family and spend time seeking God’s heart and his voice for our church and our region. The Lord has been so faithful to speak to us during these times. At the end of last year during one of these times, the Lord was speaking to me about the importance of each one of His sons and daughters “seeing for...

Overcoming Negatives

Overcoming Negatives

Amid this global pandemic, many negatives come at our hearts and minds daily. Negatives such as, “Will I lose my job”, “will I get sick”, “will my loved ones become sick”, and on and on. Not only are there a lot of negatives being broadcast all around us through the media, social media, and even other people, but there are also the negatives inside of us. These “inside” negatives often come against our identity. These types of negatives sound...

Protecting You From Me

Protecting You From Me

These crazy days have us spending time with our family members, way more than usual, when in actuality most of our relationships have been built for just the opposite. Most moms and dads are not accustomed to being at home all day and children are not accustomed to learning at the same table as their siblings. Needless to say, we are finding out how much or how little we know about these people we call family. We are also finding out how much...

Romans 12:12: A Simple Scripture That Releases Power!

Romans 12:12: A Simple Scripture That Releases Power!

I was listening to David Wagner the other day as he shared a prophetic word around the coronavirus pandemic. As I was reflecting on what he was saying, I was reminded of one of my favorite verses in the entire Bible, Romans 12:12, and something began to stir deep inside me. I like to think of this scripture as a good foundation which we should live when going through times of crisis. “Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in...

A Season of Milestone

A Season of Milestone

Seasons are marked by various changes during a specific period of time (particularly in relation to the Sun/Son). Spiritually, seasons are often defined by revelation or understanding that comes from God in the midst of or as a result of circumstances or challenges we endure. Sometimes we don’t recognize a “season” of our lives until long after it has begun and suddenly we discover that there has been a theme of what we are experiencing or what...

Yes!  In these times of virtual church it is possible to worship with little ones and a perfect time as parents to demonstrate that our worship is not about showing up at a building.
