    My 25 Years In The Ministry

    I love painting, drawing, and sketching.  I love watercolor, acrylics, gouache, and Chinese Brush Painting, but you may have noticed, I’ve been doing more digital art lately.  There is a reason for this. While I’ve always loved digital art, and animation, I’ve been doing a lot more of it lately.  One reason is, as the parent of a one year old, it’s quicker and easier to grab my iPad, than water, paints, and canvas. Another reason is, for Father’s Day, and my twenty fifth year in the Ministry, my Wife Ashley, and some dear family members, blessed me. They gave me an iPad Pro and Magic Keyboard.  I’m writing on it now. To me,…

    Grateful Adopted Parent

    Ashley showed me a video of a family who had adopted, and flew home. It stirred up so many emotions. We started looking at pictures of #NicholasAsherPruitt, and his first photo at home. I will forever be grateful that God birthed our son through the gift of #adoption. It not only gave us our son, but it taught us to treasure every moment. They are fleeting, and they are precious. I’m a proud #adopted father!

    Jesus, Obstacles, You

    Jesus, obstacles, you. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the first letter of those three words together spell Joy. Though sometimes, and make no mistake, I’m talking to myself, it takes a genius to put what we know into practice. Often I think of the old song, “O what needless pain we bear”. Today, has been one of those melancholy days for me, and I’ve felt so guilty about it. When you consider how blessed all of us are, why do we ever allow ourselves to stay down? We act like we weren’t warned, there will be days like this, and I don’t just mean what Momma…

    I Choose Love

    Racism is a mask that hatred hides behind. No matter how you try to dress it up, it’s still the putrid, ugly, opposite of what is Godly and Holy. It must be boldly and loudly stated, there is no room for hatred in the Family Of God! I’m careful not to write about things beyond my understanding, but in this case, I feel compelled to. You see, I intend to raise our son, to see everyone as equal under God’s Heaven. I don’t understand how someone could hate period, much less on the color of someone’s skin. To me, that’s like hating someone for the color of their hair. All…

    Our Time

    John 7:6 Jesus said to them, “My time has not yet come, but your time is always here. I want to talk to you today, but not about His Coming, but our going. Before I say this to you, let me say this. I believe that Heaven is nearer than its ever been. At any moment The Savior could rise from His throne, catch away His Church, and command the tribulation to begin. I believe this will happen one day, as much as I believe there are mountains and trees. I don’t know when, but I know it will happen. Yet, Jesus said, even if it’s not My time yet,…

    O, Say Can You See

    I’m setting in a hour I didn’t expect to be able to have. A son sleeps on my shoulder that I dreamed, prayed, and longed for, who just celebrated his first birthday. Fifteen surgeries later, my Wife is the happiest Mother in the world. We had to postpone his party, with everything going on. I saw another couple who got married in a room filled with the photos of the guests that couldn’t attend now. Yet, Nicholas still turned one, and they still got married. Yes there were some adjustments, and many have not been easy, but we are still here. When this virus situation began, Americans were faced with…

    The One Who Holds The Scale

    Revelation 1:12-13 12 Then I turned to see the voice that was speaking to me, and on turning I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and in the midst of the lampstands one like a son of man, clothed with a long robe and with a golden sash around his chest. This is one of my favorite chapters in The Bible. I’ve loved it in the KJV for years, but I saw something in the ESV last night. The word translated girdle in the KJV, is sash here. While both mean girdle, it’s the root word that sash points to, which fascinated me. The root is means coupling, also the beam…

    God Made Both Sides Of The River

    On each side of a river, there are mountains, valleys, and areas you’ve never been. The same was true of both Abraham and Jacob. The difference was, Abraham crossed towards Canaan, and Jacob crossed towards Laban. Both were in God’s will. Both had been told to leave where they were, and to go where they had never been. Jacob knee the areas that were new to Abraham, he had grown up around them. Abraham knee the areas that were only stories to Jacob, he had grown up around them. One was the promised land, the other had a promise in the land for Jacob. Both were part of Israel’s story.…
