Today I wanted to comment on my recent achievement! I was featured in blogging fusions blog of the day! Now I must confess I haven’t updated this blog in quite a while, therefor I feel as though I let you down. You the reader my support and comrades. You’re my reason for blogging in the first place! So here’s my pledge, my commitment, my duty to you. I promise to upkeep this blog daily! Just as the title says. Now daily blogging does take time a commodity I have very little of. (Let me know where I can buy some) wether it’s a quote or a pic or a full page I’m back and here to spread joy one post at a time!
Until next time-

Wow I have so much to tell you guys about and I’m so glad to share what I experienced these past few days. Origins conference 2012 happened and let me say it was AWESOME! This is a youth conference held annually by my church that is meant to bring kids back to the “origin” or Jesus. Every year is something special, kids having an encounter with God, releasing the bondage of addictions, fear, doubt, and generational struggles. It’s so awesome and this year was just as amazing. I had a blast practicing with the worship team and playing on a few of the songs. The room seemed to fill with an understanding that God is our provider and source of joy and life. This new revelation jump started an awakening of minds and hearts to live lives devoted to God. It’s hard enough to be a kid in today’s world, with peer pressure, drugs, tension to do well and be successful, even to grow up faster to be better than you once where. All these things are difficult to deal with but be a part of a family of believers that encourage and uplift, these once seemingly big issues know are small and manageable. I’m glad to share these photos and memories with you and hope you get inspired!
Do you seek to live a pure life?
11 He who loves purity of heart,
and whose speech is gracious, will have the king as his friend.
It says for the one who seeks a pure heart and speaks with grace will have the king as a friend. God will be pleased with you and will have a growing relationship with you, if you desire these things. Sometimes in our lives it’s easy to want or go after sinister things. Whether it’s watching a bad movie, speaking in a derogatory manner, or letting our flesh get the better of ourselves, we are human and will make mistakes. God values when we speak what is true. (Proverbs 16:13) I like this scripture because it points out what really matters and that’s our hearts. If you try your best and truly desire a life of purity and freedom in God, you will be blessed in return. Our motivation shouldn’t be to get something in return but rather to give glory and honor to God. If we humble ourselves enough we just might be able to see life in a new way, a way that is representative of Gods’ love for us.
I encourage you to stay strong in your faith no matter how big or small. Life is hard at times but when we surrender ourselves over to Gods love he blesses us, which is the most amazing thing anyone can experience.
My wife and I have been doing a daily devotional for about a month now and I wanted to talk to you a little on my experience with it. As you know the topic for this week is family. Family issues, struggles, experiences, and how we be a family for God. How does God see our family and how do we see our family.
In our daily devotions I have become aware of a disconnect. The disconnect I’m referring to is; how we perceive, manage, control, and guide our family vs. how God perceives, manages, controls, and guides our family. Many times I find myself containing God into a box in which I can manage and understand. It gives me a false belief that I know how God can work in my family and how he will manage my family. This is a scary place to be in because it limits God. Now I know what you’re thinking “you can’t limit God he can do as he pleases” This is true but he wants a relationship with us, and he will greatly bless us and help us in our day to day lives if we desire a relationship too.
I am just starting to embody this concept. The idea and practical life application of letting God have full control of my family. It’s easy to proclaim that God is the navigator of your individual life, but what about the areas of your life in which you directly impact and seemingly control. It’s these areas that stretch our faith the fullest. The areas in which my direct actions will have an effect on the outcome, God wants to help us with. He wants to give us answers and guide us in these very practical day to day things; we just need to be open enough to receive his help.
My prayer for us all is that we don’t get bogged down with everyday life and that we can step into the realization that our lives are not our own. That we can live fully according to the will of God day after day and never seizing.
The daily devotional my wife and I are doing is great for many reasons. One reason I would like to point out is the fact that it brings us together and grounds us in God day after day. As a Christian we need constant grounding, constant reminders that our lives are nothing without faith, without God. I look forward to posting another video soon and some more devo content.
God loves you; I love you, thanks for stopping by!
An update to end all updates! Not really folks I just wanted to talk up the internet with my foolishness. I have decided to make Daily Devo Resource more compatible by blogging to the masses. I want everyone to enjoy this blog not just people looking for devotionals. I will still post daily devos under the “this week’s devo” page but will post random probably non related bloggy type stuffs under the “updates” page. I have always gotten a kick out of blogging, just never had the motivation to keep it up or the creativity to stay interesting. After exploring the blogosphere I have made some great friends and have been getting great comments and encouragement. (Keep it up) So to kick off this season of creativity I will give a little shout out to Virginia is for bloggers because I myself am a Virginian and love networking with other VA bloggers. I can’t wait to join the next meet and greet and chat with other cool cats.
As for today it is going great so far. I am at work however so that’s never too amazing, unless you’re blogging! (and drinking coffee) Hahaha I did complete my morning devos and improvised with using my phone as a source of music. Why you ask? I’ll tell you good and faithful follower. My wife’s Zune (kept in the car) has failed us once again and left me with no choice but to unplug it and plug in my phone! Woohoo I like my music more anyways. Ok well there must be some sort of work for me to do. Let me know what you want to chat about on this here bloggy thingy!
God loves you; I love you, thanks for stopping by!
Hello all, Logan here with another exciting update. The layout has been confirmed and after much thought and deliberation I have realized that one video a day is simply too much. What ever shall he do you wonder, we’ll the new format will be (drum roll) one maybe two videos a week. The first video will be the layout for the daily devotions I will post in text every day for that week. The second will be a wrap up of all the devos posted for that week. Whew that wasn’t so bad. Ok we’ll baby Ellie is crying I must go, until next time!
