Gut Check.

Have you ever had one of those moments when a preacher or person says something that just…floored you?

You know what I am talking about? Just a one-liner or challenging saying that just hits you right in the gut?

When was the last time this happened to you?
Let’s talk about it…!

I am just a blogger, drummer, brother, uncle, and friend living my life for Jesus Christ and blogging about it.


  • Received a testimony over of a Kenyan boy who has grown up through Compassion’s child sponsorship program… His mother, on learning the news that he had been sponsored “God has heard my prayer”. I cannot imagine, as a parent, being in that situation. What a life changing event for him and his family.

  • There isn’t a one-liner, but this video has a series of one-liners that have influenced me. This isn’t the original video, but it has some of the main points made in it and then a reaction to the video and an explanation of some stuff from the speaker, Eric Thomas..

  • Some “gut checks” exist so far outside traditional Christian thought that they’re best not shared. Nevertheless, it’s comforting to know that I can still go to Sunday school and occasionally be pleasantly surprised.

    • What do you mean by that first part? I am confused. Traditional Christian Thought would say that ‘gut checks’ or conviction of the spirit are absolutely needed for growth and maturity in Christ.
