I was taught to find balance in life. But early in my adult life with the responsibilities of children & work & church, I discovered balance wasn't a reality. I found holding everything in TENSION was more the reality.
Now 20 years in with children and I'm a pastor today, holding everything in tension is still the reality & I know with all certainty I'll never reach this idea of "balance" that I was taught. ..
I'm happy with tension, & tension is manageable because it's closer to reality. #pastors#leadership
He shall cover you with His feathers, and under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.

Spending time with these two while driving around VB and Norfolk reminds me that I don't want a safe "Christian" life. I don't want to do the same thing every day. I want to make a difference, in Jesus' name. I want to raise my girls to know what it truly means to love people. Not just say it, but get up and show it. Not only inside the church, but outside on the battlefield. And not just people that come to you, but the people you have to search for. No lukewarm for me. I want piping hot! Jesus didn't play it safe...
⚜️ Grace. Not perfection. ⚜️
“But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.”▪️2 Corinthians 12:9 (ESV) ✝️
"Father, bless me."
Matthew 6:22-23 KJV
 The light of the body is the 👉🏾eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.  But if thine eye be 👉🏾evil, thy whole body shall be full of 👉🏾darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is 👉🏾that darkness!

Help spread the word: Every penny made will go to our friend Scott Garrison and his family as they go through a very difficult financial season. Our brother Scott (unexpectedly) lost his job a couple of weeks ago and we at Dead Men and Reformed Gentlemen would love nothing more than to see him and his family blessed during this time of uncertainty and struggle.

As I prepare for worship this morning I am conscious that the time is coming when there will be no such thing as Christian worship that is not fully integrated INTERRACIAL worship. I LONG for that day! I pray that more and more our churches will come to reflect Jesus' vision of every tribe and tongue and nation gathered around His throne. "After this I looked, and behold, a great multitude that no one could number, from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, standing before the throne and before the Lamb, clothed in white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb!” ::Revelation 7:9-12. #transformedlife#churchlife#ministry#worship#journeywise#followingjesus#pastors#pastor
