Happy 4th of July!

Radically Saved

Good morning everyone! I hope everyone can take some time today and enjoy the holiday with their families.

I also hope you all understand these attributes that God promises to give to His people. He has called us to shed that FEAR and replaced it with power, love, and self discipline.

It’s there if you want it; the choice is all up to you..

Good Morning!

Good morning everyone and welcome to Saturday! Sorry that I haven’t posted anything in a couple of days but it has been a bit of a crappy stretch for me health wise and just didn’t have it in me to write anything. I’m about 85% or so; still have the lingering cough and of course the hip issue (which I will get to in a minute) but overall feel like I’m at least on the right path again. Hope everyone is doing well out there and would love to hear from you guys. You can communicate to me through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and of course right here as well.

So, apparently I am officially mortal…..For those that don’t know a lot of my backstory, one of the more finer moments in my life happened when I thought it would be a great idea to not tackle other people but instead up the ante and try and tackle a car. Didn’t work out real well for either of us but I think the car probably got the worst of it lol. Seriously though I was getting off the city bus at the ripe old age of 14 and didn’t look both ways, darted out and BAM! Got flipped up in the air, somehow landed enough on my feet that I was able to walk about 20 yards before collapsing over a railing….I don’t remember much after that except for waking up in the hospital about 12 hours later not having any idea what happened. I was truly blessed that day because one half second either way in time and I would not be here writing this blog. God was in control even then….

I tell you this backdrop story of mine because I had thought that all my wounds had healed; not so much. See many people have told me I waddle rather than walk because one leg is shorter than the other. Really though its not my leg but my hip and back area got knocked pretty good and I never really got it taken care of; so now at the ripe old age of 46 its back and back with a vengeance…

Now, keep in mind my pain tolerance is pretty low, even for a guy, but this pain I knew was different so I went to doc about it. He did some X-rays and I got the call yesterday that I have some “very significant” arthritis in said hip and need to go to an Orthopedic specialist. I do understand this is not life threatening or anything like that, but it did give me my very first sense that “hey, goofball, you really won’t live forever”. It also reminded me of a very dark time in my life where by all rights I should have died that day. (Satan has been trying to take me out ever since). It reminds me that I’m over half way done with this crazy thing called life and my physical body will never be the same. Again, there are those in my life that are dealing with so much worse, but for me, this is a little bit of a sobering reminder of my mortality. Make sense?

I’m very aware that me losing weight couldn’t hurt the situation, however, I also know I would be dealing with this heavy or not. Back in the 80’s cars were still made with steel and so were not as forgiving as they may be today. This pain in my hip is that constant reminder; maybe the new doc will be able to help, maybe not, but as for me the first reminder that my days are not as many as they used to be just creeped up and said hello. Cute thing though that I will continue to remember as well that even though my earthly days are getting smaller, my eternal days are just around the corner. Maybe someone out there is also dealing with a similar experience? I would love to hear from you about it! Leave a comment in the comments section or however you see fit. In the meantime remember also that God is still in control and while the earth will reclaim your body, God has your eternal soul which if given to Him will live for all eternity where pain does not exist…..

Peace and love my friends, Happy Saturday!!


I Wonder..

Good Thursday morning friends. I write this to you feeling pretty lousy. I get a lot of ribbing because its just a head cold, but I guess if that was the only thing I was dealing with it would be understandable. I deal with a lot of pain everyday, (yes, I know much of it is because of my weight), some days just getting up from my bed or my chair takes everything I have. My knees feel like they are rubbing against bone, my hip has started this new thing that makes me cringe and now I am sick on top of it…

I used to be able to mask my symptoms but as I have gotten older it becomes increasingly more difficult. I titled this I wonder because I wonder what it feels like to feel good. I wonder what it feels like to just wake up and not be in discomfort or sick. I wonder if there is ever going to be a path that gets me there. I know everyone has pain and deals with things that make my issues look pale in comparison, but it still doesn’t take away what I feel. I wish people could sympathize, I guess when you are going through your own pain it makes it difficult to see the forest through the trees so to speak…..

I ask for your prayers everyone. I am off to work in what I am sure is going to be a long day ahead. Thank you for reading my blog and have a peaceful day my friends.

With the love of Jesus,


What Are You Going to Do?- June 29, 2014


Good afternoon everyone and for the second time today I will try and write this post. I spent 20 minutes writing the original and somehow it didn’t take. Well, as usual the Enemy has lost and I will post it a second time. 🙂 Disclaimer; this post will not be holding back so if you are not one that takes kindly to accountability, you might want to stop reading right about now…..

First of all, let me tell you all that I include myself in everything that I am about to write. I am 42 years old and for the most part have stayed quiet on these things for WAY too long. I felt led yesterday to do some research on how life was in the 40’s and 50’s. Now, not everything was as perfect as “Leave it to Beaver” would have us think but nonetheless, I was amazed at just how far we have fallen as a country and as a people. Everything from taking God out of our daily lives to the 1.2 million children slaughtered every year by abortion, our country now resembles nothing like it did when it was founded and apparently that is ok. Why do you say that David? Well, its almost comical because I see plenty of Abortion activists, plenty of Atheists protesting this and that, which is all fine because we are supposed to be a free country where we can express our beliefs how we see fit. The problem is what I don’t see. I don’t see churches uniting against un-biblical practices such as abortion, men having 5 or 6 wives, you name it, the church has fallen deaf on everything. Why? Well here are a few reasons as I see it…

1. We are too worried about being politically correct; we are so afraid of “judging” or even appearing as mean-spirited that we simply don’t say anything. By the way folks, have you ever read any of the New Testament? Do you think for a second that Jesus, Paul, or any of the disciples and early believers ever hesitated for a second to “lay it on” the church in a region if they started to backslide or allow things to go on that were unacceptable in the eyes of God? No, you know what we do? We allow sick, stupid groups like the Westboro Church, and I use that term very sarcastically, to speak for us. Really??

2. We have simply gotten too comfortable where we are: Folks we say we care about the principles of Christ, but how exactly are we showing them? How exactly are we doing that when we spend all of our time in the four walls of the church building, on Facebook, on Twitter, or playing those wonderful video games. Let me say this from someone who is very skeptical of most churches; posting your beliefs on Facebook and then being silent in the real world is comforting no one. Going to church every Sunday and Wed night makes you a believer about as much as the Enemy knowing Scripture makes him a believer. If we simply sit by and raise our hands to God on Sunday morning, yet do nothing for His people the rest of the week, you are just as much of a false believer as Judas was….

3. We don’t think one person can make a difference; think one person can’t make a difference? Just ask the creator of Facebook that question. Just ask the person that started Google. Think they haven’t made a difference? Where is the next Billy Graham? Are we really content with the Sunday/Wed routine that we are also content to let our country and more importantly each other’s souls go straight to hell?

Look folks, there is evil in the world there always has been and always will until our Lord comes again. In the meantime, what are we going to do? Are we going to moan and complain about our government and discussing conspiracy stories all day? Or are we going to make a real difference for Christ, for our country, and for our world? If we don’t start today, that phrase of hell on earth will soon become a reality. Call your local congressman or woman; run for office yourself, start a church that TRULY serves others and fulfills the Great Commission. do anything, do something, but get out of the four walls, get off Facebook, Twitter and WOW, and get in the Game! Is anyone out there at all….do we care at all…..The Road is narrow, so much more narrow than we think…..
