Study Habits

Do you have good study habits? Do you know where you get them from? Sometimes learning from other people requires spending time with them and watching how they act and react. I’ve learned a lot from watching my parents do different things. I’ve been in their classroom a long time. I discovered learning and developing good bible study habits requires spending time in the Bible. I’m learning more to watch how I act and react as I spend time in God’s word. Watch and learn, now that’s what I call Living on Pitch.


To God Be The Glory

Slide 6 of 12: MINNEAPOLIS, MN - FEBRUARY 04: Head coach Doug Pederson of the Philadelphia Eagles celebrates after defeating the New England Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl LII at U.S. Bank Stadium on February 4, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Everyone has a story. So what’s yours? Millions of people watched the Super Bowl game over the weekend. The NFL highlights two of the best teams in their leagues.  Interviews begin as the excitement builds.  Lights. (there’s so many of them)  We eagerly anticipate the big day to sit around the big screens rooting for our favorite players and teams.    I listened as the stories began in my house. They were all about football, the calls the referees made, the snacks and good food, the best commercials, the sports commentators, and of course the half-time show. Then it was all over.  Our stories ended at the final score and the victorious win. Some of the players continued with their stories of sweet memories, hard work and dedication.  My attention was caught by a coach who said  these simple words, “all glory to God” and mentioned His Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in his interview.  His story was not I am the best coach and my team just won the Super Bowl, his story gave glory to God. I don’t know his personal story but I thought, now that’s what I call living on pitch! That coach knows what I know, to give God all the glory is how you celebrate a victory and is by far the best part of the believer’s story.

Prayer: Dear Lord, no matter what I accomplish in life, let my story always be about you and for your glory.  Amen.

When You Don’t Know What To Say


Some of my family members have just experienced the worst flooding in their state of Louisiana.  I have seen pictures, read stories and saw how devastating this flood was.  I really don’t know what to say about those going through this natural disaster.  Some have lost loved ones while others lost their homes and other possessions.
