Stand with the LORD

Morning Thought: Standing with the Lord gives you strength. My daughter is growing up. Recently, she went out with her friends without any parents. This was a first. I gave her money and dropped her off at the movies. But then she said, “Dad, can you buy the tickets with me, I’ve never done this before.” So I went and stood with her at the counter while she bought their tickets. She was happy to do it all by herself; she just wanted me to stand with her. I saw that when you stand with the Lord and he stands with you, you find courage to do his will. I believe that’s why Elijah had boldness to stand against Ahab. Listen to what he says, “As the LORD, the God of Israel lives, before whom I stand, surely there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word” (‭‭1 Kings‬ ‭17:1‬, NASB‬‬).

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from eight to twenty-one. We’re still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia ( We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School ( 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).
