Let the Lord use you

Allow yourself to be used as an instrument by God.  Allow God to place you in situations that may not be comfortable but will provide someone out there an opportunity to know Christ.

That is easy to say but tough to do.  This is something that i am dealing with at the moment.  Yes, its the right thing to do to put yourself out there.  ITs another thing to actually do it.  I pray that this week, i have the energy and courage to place my faith out there for all to see so that in my actions, others may see Christ.

Have a great week everyone and sorry to all the Falcons fans out there!!! -PJSLB

I am done driving this bus

I am sharing this because i know that a lot of you are going thru this as well.  A lot of you are just as confused as I am about “What God wants me to do”.  I read your comments and emails and all your questions.  Its hard cause the questions you ask are questions i have myself.

My life has taken some turns and for the most part it has been exciting and fun.  This part of my life isnt so much.  I am scared and confused.  How did i go from ‘what i prayed for’ to  ‘an opportunity presents itself’ to ‘hey guess what something big could be on the way’.  Its frustrating because i thought i was already at a place where God wants to use me.  But now i can be pulled to two different place…Where do i go…What do I do?  I am beginning to lose sleep over this.


After speaking with a childhood friend and my wife and asking for prayers, I am just as confused as ever.  I then had a breakthrough! I GIVE UP!!!!! I GIVE UP TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHAT God WANTS OUT OF ME!  I give up trying to put the pieces together.  I give up trying to “make moves” so that something will happen.   I give up and will now let God completely take control.

Whether i stay where i am, go somewhere else, do what what i am doing now, create something new with a new opportunity, or even revert back to life before 2013 and the hectic schedule of a family business…i will just “fall” into place knowing that this is what God had planned all along. -PJSLB

Merry Christmas to Asia and the Pacific and happy Christmas Eve to all

Have a blessed Christmas Eve with family and friends. If you are not with loved ones, I pray that the Holy Spirit comfort you and wrap you with love and peace.   As for me, i am blessed to be with my wife and kids.  I do not take it for granted that I have them around.  I miss my mom and dad as they are halfway around the world.  It warms my heart that they are at my fathers childhood home right now.

The Newsboys say it best.
