Pain + Prayer = Power

Morning Thought: Pain is like coal. It’s not very valuable in itself. Hold on to it and you’ll be left with dark stains. But, if you throw the coal of pain into the fire of prayer it will produce power. That’s how the old locomotives moved: coal + fire = steam/power. That’s also how you’ll move forward in God. Don’t waste your pain on complaining; convert it to power through prayer. “Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me” ‭‭(Psalms‬ ‭50:15‬, ‭NASB‬‬).

I was born and raised in New York. In 1999 I migrated to Australia, married my beautiful wife, Anna, and became a pastor. We are now the proud parents of four children ranging in age from five to eighteen. We are still pastoring a beautiful church in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (www.brisbanefire.com) and we lead an awesome Bible School (www.holyfireschool.com). I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
