Challenging believers in Jesus to think and act based on Bible truth.

Tuesday Rambling 8.6.13

Here is my usually Tuesday scatteredness.  Is that a word? It is now!

Sports

  • Alex Rodriguez is one of the most selfish human beings.  Wow.  He has not a care in the world that the spotlight is on him while it should be on his teammate (Mariano Rivera) who is finishing a Hall of Fame career this year. I know the Yankees won’t make the playoffs, but wow this guy is a sight to behold.  It makes me sad.
  • The local team, your Cleveland Indians, on the other hand, look decent.  They still can’t win a big game against Detroit (or so it seems), but with the weakness of their schedule it seems the playoffs are a decent possibility.
  • I am definitely excited for the NFL season to start.

Personal Growth

  • It has been a while since I have felt like I was thriving in several areas all at once.  I praise God that this has been one of those seasons in my life.  I hope and pray God can continue to help me grow as an individual and as a leader.
  • I will be enrolling in a class about counseling soon.  I hope it makes me more effective in helping people work through issues life throws at them.  Counselors have been super effective in my life at certain points.

Family

  • Our Heavenly Father is enjoyable.  Yes!  I do look forward to going to heaven and spending eternity with God.  So, I want my kids to see some part of me as an enjoyable person who reflects that part of our heavenly Father’s characteristics.  All jokes aside, I do have a hard time with that.  It is not natural for me to plan fun activities with our family.  So, I have to be intentional and try my best.
  • I am sure many parents struggle with having energy for their children.  It’s a constant struggle, but one we must think through, always striving for growth.

Media

  • One show I like is America’s Got Talent.  I enjoy watching people under pressure.  You never know how they’ll perform.
  • I got a new album from Sovereign Grace with songs about the book of Romans.  It’s fantastic.
  • When watching the news, remember: they are telling you that’s what they think the news is.  Always have a filter on when listening to “the latest”.
