Back in 2013, I was given the opportunity to go on a missions trip. I hadn't been on a trip of this nature since 1996, so I knew that I'd be stretched in my thinking, world view, and faith. So, with a team and gear in hand, we ventured down to the country of Belize.
Are you sharing goats?

I had this train of thought a long time ago when I first jumped in to the pool of social media. I looked at the pool and decided that it didn't look deep enough to drown, so I jumped into the deep end. Little did I know, that I wasn't strong enough.

I had a friend back in high school say, "I'm not going to follow the Lord right now, cause I want to experience what the world has to offer and build up a good testimony." My exact words to her were, "Ummm...What the what?!?" She was telling me that she desired to live the life of the prodigal son.

You know the saying, "hindsight is 20/20"? There have been so many times in my life when I have looked back on particular events and have seen God's work in my life. It was so evident sometimes, I wondered why I couldn't have seen His handiwork when the event was taking place. I've been able to witness God at work in my life so clearly, it has been amazing and unsettling.

It's okay to talk about Christmas in June, right?! Well, in any case...

On the opposite side of the river, General Washington was at a crossroads. As was the custom of warfare in that day not to fight during the winter time. He had a decision to make. Use the dark of night, winter, and Christmas to surprise the British forces on the other side of the river, or don't. As we learn from history, we know what course he took...
The anguish of who I am
by Cameron Stevens on June 14th, 2021
I am no good. There is nothing about me that is worthy to be called a good person. I am constantly in a state of torment and anguish. This struggle will not allow my heart to settle in to peace. My mind is waging a constant war. I find myself reeling with confusion and pain at the things I've done, and those I've hurt. I'm suffocating in a cloud of anger, hostility, and guilt...
Strong and Courageous

What are you called by God to do? Call it a resolution, goal, aspiration, or whatever you want, but what is your God given purpose?
Known but to God

The 3rd US Infantry Regiment, known as "The Old Guard", has been continuously guarding The Tomb of the Unknown Soldiers for the last 84 years. Now, here's something amazing to consider. When I say continuously, that means without pause or break. 24 hours a day, 365 days a year regardless of weather, politics, holidays, terrorist attacks, etc.
All the world's a stage
by Cameron Stevens on May 18th, 2021
We've all heard the quote before, "All the world's a stage!" What does this mean to you? Are we all actors? Some have bigger roles and are given more lines to memorize. Some may be given the role of "man in coffee shop". What is your role?
3 Strikes and You're NOT out!
by Cameron Stevens on May 10th, 2021
I got to thinking today about the concept of "3 strikes and you're out". The obvious correlation is to the game of baseball. I've heard parents employ this rule with their children..."I'm going to give you to the count of 3 young man!" Have you noticed however, that after a batter strikes out, the child is disciplined, and punishment is handed out at school, the individual gets another chance! As long as the game continues, the batter gets to try again.
I Am a Child of God
by Cameron Stevens on May 3rd, 2021
There is a reason why today, I can call myself a child of God. It has almost everything to do with my own dad. I say almost because ultimately my Heavenly Father is the One who called me, died for me, and has provided everlasting life for me. But how did I come to a realization of who God is?
