The anatomy of a hard heart

Anatomy of a hard heart

One of the most difficult aspects of this season in my life is that I had never prepared for it.  What I mean to say is, on the one hand, this is something the church never talks about. We never talk about the pain that cuts so deep it paralyzes its victims.  We never talk […]

The darkest place I’ve ever been

Saudi Night Sky

  When I was 9 years old my family lived in Saudi Arabia.  A country with desserts so vast only 1.5% of it’s entire mass is inhabitable, leaving more than 98% of the country barren and desolate.  Very few people travel these areas because resources are scarce, and a simple cry for help will go […]

Honor: The forgotten way.

If you have ever received recognition for your accomplishments, you know that it’s like a breath of pure oxygen to a mountain climber caught beneath an avalanche.  There is no greater joy and feeling of accomplishment than knowing someone appreciates what you’ve done.  Over the last several months I have been proactively seeking ways to […]

That’s all I have

Far too often I catch myself living beneath my potential and below my responsibilities because I believe that I have nothing for God to work with. Not enough finances.  Not enough training.  Not enough experience. Whatever the reason, sometimes we allow circumstances, and in some cases other people, to keep us from seeing that God […]

I’m chiseled – and so are you.

Attitude, Faith, Gospel, Hope, Worship 1 Comment by Josh Schlotterbeck

So, I know many of you made the resolution to get into shape or work out more this year.  That’s not what I’m talking about.    I’m talking about rocks. Yesterday the kids and I set up their Rock Tumbler that they got for Christmas.  It was kind of anti climactic because when the kids found […]

No California Stopping Allowed.

This blog is about waiting on God. And to me sometimes waiting,  when God says wait; is like sitting at a red light. I know, you’re thinking, DUH. You stop and wait at a red light. But there’s more to it than that. Keeping you car stopped at a red like requires a tremendous amount […]

Don’t count yourself out.

The number of those who ate was about five thousand men, besides women and children. -Matthew 14:21 Jesus didn’t feed 5,000 people with five loaves and two fish. He fed a crowd of people that numbered more than 5,000. You see  in those days, the women and children typically weren’t part of the headcount. Therefore, […]

Ctritics and catalysts.

In my experience there are two types of people: critics and catalysts. Critics deny the potential they see (or may not see) in your life, and seek to validate only themselves or their position. They throw spears at you because of their own insecurities. Catalysts see your potential, speak to it and reveal or create […]

The Axe and the lumberjack

If I had eight hours to chop down a tree, I’d spend six sharpening my Axe. ~Abraham Lincoln This simple statement is probably one of the most profound business principles I have ever read. Effective (sales, marketing, managing, leading) is like cutting down trees.  Highly effective professionals know the value of taking time to sharpen their tools. They build time for […]
