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

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 […]

The Shareholders Meeting

The Shareholders Meeting

The Shareholders Meeting: In a dimly lit room holding about thirty individuals from various countries, backgrounds, and experience levels all sat conversing their vested interest in a precious commodity. There were questions posed from those transitioning from one point of leadership to another. There were questions asked from those just beginning their journey in investing in this commodity. Thoughts were provoked, hearts were stirred, and the young and the elder sat at the same table without rank or recognition all […]

The Power of One

The Power of One

They are not ill, or suffering from a physical malady but they are suffering in their heart.  What is this great suffering that I speak of?  It is the suffering of a dedicated individual in a poisoned environment. It can be likened to a crop struggling to grow in contaminated soil. Their roots are desperately trying […]

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 […]

Firefighter Discipleship: Leadership Lessons from the Book of Titus. “Training others up in the way they should go” is an important step in the discipleship process, which is to slowly and carefully develop someone into a mature Christian and a responsible leader” (NIV commentary on Titus).

Jesus commands us in the […]

Is your fire free burning or slowly dying?

Is your fire free burning or slowly dying?

1 John 1:6 If we claim to have fellowship with him and yet walk in the darkness, we lie and do not live out the truth. As leaders, we are tasked with providing encouragement to people who can be hostile and unreceptive. And the organizations that we serve can often hinder our efforts to provide positive change. Our positive words seem to be met with a negative reactions more than a welcome response. Our suggestions are often met with negativity […]
