It is very early in the morning, and I didn't get to bed until after midnight last night. But I can't sleep anymore. I didn't eat much yesterday, but I'm not hungry, and there is a big golf tournament here in Ponte Vedra going on, for which I shelled out a chunk of money and was excited to go today, for the first time in 10 years. Whoopdie damn doo. I will be late, and I don't care.
The world is not the same this morning. The only sage I have had in my life is gone.

Deep within our hearts is an aching longing and desire. It is sad to me how little such longing is spoken of; somehow, it seems wrong or frivolous, yet it is a crucial part of kingdom redemption. This desire is endless longing for a better land, endless aching that you were not meant for this country—an aching that drives you to redeem it, to change it, and to…Continue

God is so gracious and filled with mercy. In my latest blog post I describe how he showed me grace despite my irresponsibility. Read about it at: A Mysterious, Beautiful Fog

I am this morning mindful of the person of God. His perfect nature is evident, our fallen nature is also evident. We are no longer perfect creations due to the choice of Adam and Eve to surrender to the taste of the fruit of the forbidden tree of knowledge.
That knowledge in my current understanding is human knowing outside of the holy spirt of God. From that tree comes much that is good, yet also what is evil. We where created well, we are good, yet the virus…Continue

I don’t think I’ve ever been asked into anything in my life. For as long as I can remember I’ve forced my way into every situation that I’ve been in. I think that came from being forced as a child into every situation and I didn’t want to be in any of them. I’ve never really waited on the Lord. I’ve tried but then went ahead without Him anyway because He was taking too long to show me results. It’s quite possible that the results I was looking for or expecting from God weren’t realistic…Continue

We are entering Holy Week, where we celebrate the Passion of Christ. See my latest blog post on the topic of our desperate need for forgiveness...which is why Jesus came! In this post I try to relate themes from popular music to fundamental needs familiar to us all, and which Christianity directly addresses. See the post at: Finding Meaning and Purpose at the University.

I am more and more aware of how insidious Satan can be in trying to get believers to make agreements with his lies. Our daughter is a believer and married to a young man from Guetamala who is also loves the Lord. They have a seventeen month old son, Judah, who my wife and I love very much. Over the past couple of weeks, they have had some disagreements...nothing earth shattering...the kind most young couples go through. I have found my thoughts pondering the number of divorces we've…Continue

Lately I've been working on building friendships. I actively work on being friendly.
(Uh'oh, my mind just went into free association mode, i.e.: friend "ships," ship building…etc).
OK, I'm back.
Anyway, I came to a point where I started thinking; people don't have to have something that I want to be valuable. There is an intrinsic value to us all (in God's eyes) and that "all" includes other people. What I'm saying is my criteria for…Continue
I find it very difficult to maintain or to split my passions between many things. I'm a husband, dad, writer, & musician but I feel like God is pushing me to leave my "work" of trying to further my career and just stay home and be with my kids - especially while they are young. I'm able to because my wife works (also from home) so I've opted to spend my attention on what really matters - them.

My 5-year-old son just used the word "impenetrable" correctly while playing with his 7-year-old brother.

“I think a Prophet’s job is to bring people to where a Prophet is.” ~Erin Jarrod
My wife (with the Redemptive Gift of Mercy) said, “I think a Prophet’s job is to bring people to where a Prophet is.” I agree. I think a Prophet should be in good standing in their relationship with God, with their spouse and children, and enjoy those relationships. A Prophet should be learning from God how to enjoy their life with their family. Not only how to live their own life but also how to lead…

For years I’ve seen the decline in the amount of moral leaders. As our leaders retire from their work, quit, or die, what happens then? Who will take their place? At the risk of alienating myself I want to ask, Where is the moral leadership in the world today? Where is it in our own country? I’m concerned about where we’re headed. I see the populous at large mostly wandering aimlessly like sheep through dark moral valleys. I see how the lions are circling the canyon rims, taking their…Continue

I haven't written in a while. I've been finding out what an apprentice goes through emotionally/spiritually/physically. I have a lifelong apprenticeship going here.
the subjects covered lately have been tithing, holiness, trust and the real reason behind all of these.
"You cannot serve two masters; you will love the one and hate the other or you will cling to the one and despise the other." The breakthrough that happens when you tithe defeats the grip of money…Continue
Last night I stayed up until midnight talking with my wife about God and our spiritual gifts and I absolutely loved it! I got up this morning excited about writing. If I could get up everyday, write about what God reveals to me, and then be able to share that with others, I think I would be content. What is your Glory that you should be living…Continue

I wonder if my whole life must be spent being a holy husband and dad (set apart and dedicated to God) in order to undo the curse(s) passed on to me – the curses I feel I am under.

When did you become a man? That is a question that you don't hear much. Is it because in order to ask the question, you must first either know when you became a man, or admit to yourself that you never really did.
On August 30th, 2012, my son Joseph Caruthers, became a man. Not because of anything he did, but because the men in the Body of Christ…Continue
