Better Late Than Never!

You might have noticed my site went down the week before last.

I was hacked by an overseas network trying to use my site for phishing. Fortunately, the security measures at Bluehost spotted the ruse and shut things down before my site could be used.

That said, I spent a couple days on the phone with a website security firm out of Chicago, cleaning the site, and setting up ongoing, instant monitoring to prevent it from happening again. Whew! I was finally back up and running, until…

Last week, a Windows update crashed my PC (I know, Mac fans, I just haven’t taken the leap, yet…). Fortunately, all my files were safe, but all my programs had to be reinstalled–in the scattered “down moments” between life and life happening.

Sorry, if I sound like I’m complaining. I’m really not. Okay, maybe just a little.

But, now that that is over, here are five articles (that should have come out Friday) that blessed me this past couple of weeks. I hope they bless you too.

Better late than never, right?

Two Lies We Believe About Success. Jeff Goins shares some great thoughts about two lies you’ve probably been listening to your entire life. You might be surprised by what they are.

The Least of These. This is a short video (12:51 min) of a devotion given by my academic advisor at Knox Seminary, Steve Jeck. I love the simplicity of the message; and I loved the simplicity of his delivery. Check it out.

Jesus is the Hero. If you miss this truth, you’ve missed the point of the Bible. Dr. David Prince offers excellent insight into how we should be reading the Bible.

Choosing the Immediate Over the Important. Short, sweet, and to the point, Phil Cooke is spot on in this quick read.

No Man is an Island  explores one of the more important aspects of Christ’s community. As an influential Christian leader once said so succinctly, “We can’t say we love Jesus when we mistreat or ignore his bride.”

Be blessed and have a great rest of your weekend.
