Pull The Plug!

Hello again readers! I hope ou are doing great today!

Yesterday at my church (NorthChurch.tv), we celebrated our 10 year anniversary. The sermon was AMAZING! I always like hearing Pastor Rodney speak. Below is a picture of what the outside of the church looked like.

I kind of wanted to touch on what was talked about. I have considered myself a Christian since 1998. There have been times where I was on fire for God, and following in His steps. There have also been times where I was very distant from God, and could care less about what He wanted for my life.

In the sermon yesterday, the biggest thing that got me was the analogy that my Pastor mentioned about life support and death. Death is apart of life. There is no stopping it. You, myself, and everyone that exists will die. What a lot of Christians don’t grasp, is that when we become a Christian, we have to spiritually die, before we physically die.

What do I mean by that? Basically, when you become a Christian, your life should be transformed. You are a new person. The things you do should be radically different now that you have Jesus in your life. Of course, like myself, there will be struggles. I guess what I and a lot of us need to do is… Pull The Plug! Disconnect from our old life and die spiritually. Until we do so, we will never know the true greatness that God has in store for us.

Are you ready to pull the plug?? I am.

Until next time readers, God Bless!

Get To Know Me!

Hello again readers! I am writing this post a head of time in response to my post from yesterday. Good morning by the way!

I know that many of you that read my blog are friends of mine, but there are many of you that I have never met.

For the last year, I have been writing this blog, and have kinda hid behind the wall of not putting my “real” self out there. I have share with you my thoughts and opinions, but I have never given you a face of the person writing these blogs.

So here I am, and below is a little bit about myself.

My name is Tom McDaniel. I am currently am 29 years old and live in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA. I have been married to my wife Nicole for about a year and half. We currently don’t have any children.

I graduated from Kaplan University with a degree in Business Management. Although, I currently do not use the degree in my professional career, I plan to in the future.

My wife and I NorthChurch.tv in Oklahoma City. We have connected with a great group of people and love it there.

In my spare time, I am a technology junkie. I love reading about computers, video games, etc.. I also play softball for my church, and enjoy watching many sports.

So there is a short bio on me. I hope you enjoyed it.

Until next time readers, God Bless!

Time… Is It Really On Our Side?

Hello again readers! It is Sunday, and I hope you have had a great week.

Today at my church, my friend, and fellow Christian, Brian Cromer preached on the message of generosity. He mentioned that we as Christians need to be generous.

Just as he mentioned, being generous doesn’t always mean with our money. Money is a great thing to be generous with though. We just need to be generous with more.

God has blessed us in so many ways. Each and everyone one of us have some sort of talent/gift that God has given. If you know about your talent/gift, how are you using it? Are you using it to serve God and His people?

People often think that we have a ton of time to do something great with life, but in reality we don’t. Life is just a breath of air; a speck of sand.

Brian really struck a chord with me today when he mentioned some statistics.

The average adult works 7 1/2 hours a day, sleeps 7 1/2 hours, is in the bathroom 1 hour a day, and watches 3 hours of tv a night.

The average teenager spends 72 hours a week in media, but only 25 minutes in genuine conversation with their parents.

Isn’t that scary?

All I have to ask you today is:

Are you using your time wisely?

Until next time readers, God Bless!
