2018 Spring Break – Destin, Florida

In a world were our kids are using their handheld devices everyday, I take it as a blessing to take these trips and just spend face to face time with them. This year, we decided on Destin, Florida. We have family flying in from L.A. for Grandparents Day at FPD and they wanted to visit extended family in the area. People ask me if i ever do anything besides posting about my faith or how i practice my faith. Here are some pics from the trip. Have a blessed week with family and friends. UPDATED REGULARLY.

Stewardship Rewarded

“So he called ten of his servants and gave them ten minas. ‘Put this money to work,’ he said, ‘until I come back.’…The first one came and said, ‘Sir, your mina has earned ten more.’ ‘Well done, my good servant!’ his master replied. ‘Because you have been trustworthy in a very small matter, take charge of ten cities.’”

Luke 19:13, 16-17

Good stewardship of our spiritual gifts and financial resources will be rewarded in God’s kingdom. There is accountability for what God has entrusted to us. We will all have our conversation with the King. Knowing what we have been given is our first priority. Living with kingdom values as we invest our resources, relationships, gifts and capacity into Christ’s mission and commission must be our priority! The reward for good faith-filled stewardship of what we’ve been given (health, family, vision, faith and so much more) is much greater than we ever imagined. Jesus calls us to lead cities in his kingdom. No assignment is too small to ignore good stewardship.

Lord Jesus, thank you for all I’ve been given. I desire to live with risk-taking obedience as a faithful steward, for your glory.

How the word of God travels

I will be the first to admit that this blog was just something i started out of fun and just to “play around”.  Yes, I try my best to live a Christian life and yes I do believe everything i write.  BUT never would i know that this blog which is basic and primitive as compared to others would be able to reach all corners of the earth.  The picture below shows how God can use even something as simple as this blog to spread his word! The highlighted countries in light blue are countries where the blog has been viewed since I have been writing regularly.

Revelation 14:6

Then I saw another angel flying directly overhead, with an eternal gospel to proclaim to those who dwell on earth, to every nation and tribe and language and people.

Prayer request from A.R.R.

Received this today in the prayer request page.  Please life up P.C. in your prayers.

Please pray for my wife and I. I (have) been wanting another child, but she (has) been afraid/fearful with her high blood pressure (and) that it will be difficult during her pregnancy and put the child at high risk. Keep us in your prayers.

Merry Christmas Family….
God Bless

A.R.R., You will be in all our prayers.  This is a tough one because its praying for what you want and at the same time praying for someone else (in this case your wife) to be comfortable with what you are praying for.  Wanting another child is something i can relate to.  I also know how stressful and worrisome any pregnancy can be.

It is in my heart to pray NOT for your wife to change her mind or for you to receive what you are praying for BUT to pray for complete trust and submittal to the will of God.  The bible teaches us to trust the lord in all and rely on his infinite understanding.  I pray that you trust the Lord in his decision to help you have a child (or not) AND more importantly, I pray that your wife TRUSTS the lord if she does (or does not) get pregnant.

Psalm 84:11 
For the LORD God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The LORD will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.

Please keep us updated A.R.R. and rest assured that you have brothers and sisters in Christ  that are praying for you and your family.
