The Unappreciated

The Unappreciated

There comes a time in everyone’s life where all their efforts seem to be failing… There comes a time when nothing seems to work out despite our valiant efforts… There comes a time when disaster strikes those closest to us that do well, while the wicked live on and prosper… There comes a time when leaders will abuse their authority, slander & lie, promote mediocrity, and allow certain individuals who “fall in line” to break the rules while they discipline […]

The Forgotten Ones

The Forgotten Ones

It is a commonly known fact that those that care for others the most often receive the least care or concern in return…   It is commonly known that those who give the most of themselves, who bear their souls, and lift up others in prayer often suffer in silence with their own struggles of sin and pain…   To those who call out from the depths of despair… When you have walked through the darkness of your circumstance… Take […]

In One Moment

In One Moment

Many of us complain through our joys rather than celebrate them… We fail to realize that our lives are but mere moments… And it’s up to us to either live with remorse or cherish them… In one moment, we stand before God at an altar… In one moment, we cannot believe that our marriage has faltered… In one moment, we hold a precious new born child… In one moment, we are signing papers over differences that can’t be reconciled… In […]

This is My Fire House

Welcome to my fire house, it is like no other…   Here we answer the call of the needy, the hurting, and bring calm to the chaos…   This is my fire house, a place of provision, security, and accountability all in one…   Here we eat together, pray together, play together, and share our burdens…   This is my fire house, it is like no other for only here can we be real with one another…   Here we […]

In a Battle? Time to Get to Higher Ground!

In the midst of the storms of this life, have we considered how well we are communicating with the One who controls the winds and the waves? In the middle of the firefight when the flames are raging, how well are we communicating with the Ultimate Incident Commander? “Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me for in you my soul takes refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed. I cry out to […]

The Shortest & Most Powerful Verse

The Shortest & Most Powerful Verse

The Shortest & Most Powerful Verse: “Jesus wept” (John 11:35) As firefighters, we don’t like to admit that we often hurt. Not just a physical pain from our work but an inner torment. We often push down the emotions from the things we see, the struggles in our own lives, and the stress we experience. Then in one moment, we erupt as if our emotional pressure relief valve gives up. The tears come and they fall like rain. Perhaps, in […]

The Haz-Mat Rule of Relationships:

The Haz-Mat Rule of Relationships:

In the fire service, we are taught when dealing with hazardous materials incidents that we are to: Recognize, Notify, Identify, & Protect: In our personal lives, we will ultimately find that our environments are often hazardous to our health. We may be in the most vibrant, passionate, and fired up stage of our lives and yet be in an environment that does everything to poison, condemn, and cause us to doubt. We often forget, that we were made for a […]

The Rescue of a Broken Heart:

The Rescue of a Broken Heart:

“Without realizing it, we often carry something around with us everywhere we go. We bring it out in our conversations and it shows up in our attitudes. It never really existed, yet it’s power lives among us and keeps us from moving forward.” Author unknown. A look, an act of omission, choosing to remove oneself, and the very lines on our face can tell more than many of us would like to admit about the condition of our heart. We […]
