Here’s a short vid I made about the true meaning and opportunity of THANKSGIVING.

THE ULTIMATE CLOUD TECHNOLOGY!!  Our spiritual family in heaven is watching and cheering us on!!!

“Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a CLOUD OF WITNESSES, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God.” (Hebrews 12:1-2)

digging for treasure - LOON WATCHMAN BLOG

“The kingdom of Heaven is like treasure hidden in a field.” (Matthew 13:44)
Want the good stuff? You gotta spend time digging. Casual seekers find very little.


So many distractions.  Can’t let “stuff” divert us from our inheritance and adventure in God.  Divine focus!  So important.  Sometimes you just gotta make the hard choices and say “NO” to electronica, entertainment, busy-ness, etc.  NO GUTS, NO GLORY!!!
An important part of Christian discipleship is the process of unlearning the things we learned when we were being discipled by the World.

“This one comes out only by prayer and fasting…”  (Mark 9:29)

When Jesus cast out the demon — the demon His disciples couldn’t cast out — He said the above words.  But He didn’t actually stop to pray and fast at the scene of the deliverance.  That is because His life was FILLED with prayer, as well as regularly denying Himself various temporarily-satisfying things like food, as He chose to set ABIDING with His Father as His #1 priority.

“I have food to eat that you know nothing about.”  (John 4:32)

It was this abiding that released the power in that moment of deliverance.  And He was saying that we can walk in this same authority if we live the same way.

“He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit;”  (John 15:5)


“We are not yet what we shall be, but we are growing toward it, the process is not yet finished, but it is going on, this is not the end, but it is the road.” (Martin Luther)

“What we will be has not yet been made known.” (1 John 3:2)

There is a war going on.  A war between LIGHT and DARKNESS.  Darkness seeks to hide things.  It especially seeks to hide our destiny in God – the IDENTITY that we are called to be, in Him, in eternity. Some people say that because they were born a certain way, that that is who they are.  But we are all born into darkness, and this darkness obscures and confuses many things, including such things as our true value, our life and/or sexual orientation, our view of reality, etc.  That is why the past is such a bad gauge of REALITY.  Only when we allow God and His LIGHT/TRUTH REVELATION to define us do we start to get a glimpse of what our true identity and destiny will be.

“To him who overcomes, I will give some of the hidden manna. I will also give him a white stone with a new name written on it, known only to him who receives it.” (Revelation 2:17)
