Pace Yourself

Morning Thought: Pace yourself so that you reach God’s destination. One of the first lessons my Dad taught me was about running. He told me to keep an even pace. “Don’t try to be first, just run at a speed that you can sustain.” When a race started, especially a long distance one, all the kids sprinted ahead of me. I kept my pace. Eventually they would all lose their steam and I’d run pass them, winning the race. Lately, I’ve been hearing God say, “Pace yourself, walk in my rhythm not the world’s.” Listen to what Jacob said, “My lord knows that the children are tender and that I must care for the ewes and cows that are nursing their young…So let my lord go on ahead of his servant, while I move along slowly at the pace of the flocks and herds before me and the pace of the children, until I come to my lord in Seir.”‭‭ (Genesis‬ ‭33:13-14‬, NIV‬‬).

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).
