Just Another Day in the Life! My family and I have enjoyed knowing God and making Him known in our lives. For whatever reason, the Lord has allowed us – just ordinary people – to experience His extraordinary grace.
What makes my life ordinary? I feel like I do and aspire to do what most other people in this country do: I try to work hard at my job, I spend time with my family, I serve in my church, and I dream of what the future holds. I have good days and not-so-good days…I have regrets and struggles, joy and triumphs, and everything in between just like everybody else. I like to talk, laugh, run, and read. I live my life each day with a desire to fellowship with the Lord, with a joyful love for my wife and children, and with a hope to reach and to encourage others in the Lord. To me, this is what it means to be a regular, Christian man.
Blazing an exciting new path! The Lord has opened up new doors for us recently. I am a Chaplain in the US Army Reserves and am serving as the Pastor of Discipleship at Prairie Baptist Church. I am also a doctoral student at Luther Rice College & Seminary. I have enjoyed ministering in 3 churches over the past 10 years as I’ve pursued my seminary education and appointment into the chaplaincy.
Let’s keep learning, together! The extraordinary things that have happened to me can happen in like manner to anyone, anywhere, at any time. As people put into place the wisdom which God has laid out for us in the Bible, the things that seem impossible with us are possible with God. My hope and prayer is that I can reach other “ordinary” folks like me with the extraordinary message of hope found within the Word of God. May God bless you as you “learn the way of wisdom!”
