Joseph: Skills to Pay the Bills

Somehow, even in his early years, Joseph recognized the importance of the presence of God and learning new skills. Those 15 years weren’t lost but an opportunity for development.

Joseph: Ain’t Nobody Got Time for This

I know this in my head, but I’m still learning in my heart how God operates outside of time and space. He speaks, and it is done. Yet for me (within time and space), times continues to pass. I still must wait.

Joseph: The Presence is Strong in this One.

As a young man, I believed God promised me success. I heard God, but I misunderstood what He was saying. He promised me Himself – which leads to success.

Judah: A Road to Redemption

Shame is a cycle, and if it’s not broken, it will lead to destruction. But this is exactly what God specializes in…redemption. God sees more in Judah than he sees in himself, so God pursues Judah with an unlikely person – a prostitute who is actually his daughter-in-law.

Joseph: A Story of Redemption

Last month I read through the story of Joseph in the Bible (Genesis 37-50). Each day I was challenged to share what I learned. Here was my insight for Genesis 37.

From Nothing to Something

You Can’t Handle the Truth!

Truth From the beginning humans have wrestled with truth. What is true? How do we know it’s true? Why is it true? Is it true for everyone? Is it true for just me? In the garden, Eve is standing at the tree (right beside Adam, look it up). The snake questions the truth of God’s commands. Did […]

The FUTURE: You won’t believe this story!

The set-up This Christmas, I took my family to spend a week in Mexico, but this was no trip to the beach. For the second year, we joined a team of over 150 to build 20 homes for the homeless in Mexico. These homes are all in and around a squatter village called “The Colonia” surrounding the town […]

What do I do with this Dream? on Andy Bondurant

What to do with your dream?

The Impossible Dream Our culture celebrates big dreams. We are told to shoot for the moon, swing for the fences and climb tall mountains. We marvel at those who make it big – goals fulfilled. We encourage the ones who have stumbled along the way. I’m no different. In my last post, I shared my desire to […]

Something Lost and Something Found

Tearin’ Apart the House Last year, my boys wore me out begging for a new game console. They desperately “needed” to upgrade from an XBox 360 to an XBox One. After negotiation, we figured out a plan, which included selling all of our old gaming equipment. That weekend, we gathered all of our stuff and headed out […]
