“In him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of him who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of his will”

Ephesians 1:11

We were all created for a reason. We may not know that reason yet or our true purpose but rest assured God knows it and he is grooming you and me to be the perfect person.

Have you ever had a time in life where you didn’t understand why something was happening? I can think of about, let’s see, way too many times that it happened to me. When I was younger, I remember applying for a job, being super stoked that I was asked to interview. Nailing the interview, I mean I just killed it. Then right before walking out the door asking a question that put doubt into the manager’s head. Not getting the job and wondering why God didn’t allow this to happen. Guess what if I would have gotten that job, there is a very real chance that you wouldn’t be reading this today.

God already knows our path. He does his very best to ensure that we follow it.
Ed Mylett recently interviewed Darryl Strawberry on his pod cast and it was amazing to hear his story and how he gave all credit to God for everything that happened. Even the stuff that we would never see as Godly. He knew that if he did endure and encounter the hard times in his life that he would not be able to connect with God the same way as he does today. One of my favorite lines was “I’m a sinner. I’m just not practicing right now!” How profound and true is that.

God knows where we are supposed to be. Who we are going to influence and he will give us the platform we need. He knows us before we are ever born, he knows us when we are in the womb. Trust in God and know that no matter what happens it is God’s plan. God never said once in the bible that having faith would be easy, or that bad things would happen if we had strong faith. He did how ever say that he would never guv us more than we could handle. God is building the perfect you!!


God as we come to you today we know that you are in control of our entire lives. We know that you have a purpose for us and that you are preparing us for what you truly have intended for our lives. WE ask that you give us the patience and preservice to keep on keeping on through the trials. We pray that we help us to keep contact with you through the great times. Most of all God we thank you for making us who we are and helping to mold us into who YOU need us to be. Thank you for making me, me!.



Lord, today we come to you with HAPPY hearts.  We are so grateful that you give us the opportunity to change the lives of those around us.  We are grateful that you give us the wisdom to change our lives and the lives of those around us.  And you make it so simple. We can do it with a single smile. God today I would ask that you help us to smile more. The next time we see someone down, help us to smile for them. The next time we are down, help us to remember that you gave us the best gift ever. The ability to know you, your son, and the holy spirit. God, we are so grateful for everything you give us.

We ask all these things in your Precious Son's Name


A Little More

 The other day I got a call from one of our clients.

I love talking to our clients so I always smile when I answer the phone.

“Hey Dan, one of my drivers is pulled over and they are saying that our permit doesn’t cover what we weigh. Isn’t that why we hire your team to make sure that these things don’t happen!”

My smile immediately vanished.

I was shocked because my team is amazing. and it’s not like them to miss something like 20,000 lbs on a permit.

So, I asked him, “Who have you been working with, and who was the one who called our team to get the permit?” 

To get to the bottom of the problem I needed the details.

They gave me the details.

My next call was to my team. Then after I got the details I got them started on getting new permits to get the problem fixed. I’m a solutions guy, not an excuses guy.

But I NEED to know the real reason why it happened so that we can fix the issue.

My next call was to the driver so that I could see exactly what happened.

I knew he was going to be upset. He was pulled over and they were going to give him a HUGE ticket. I wouldn’t be happy either.


I made sure not to smile when I made the call.  I had a serious look on my face. As we chatted I learned that he was the person who gave his weight to our team. I asked where he got the weights from and how in the world they were off by over 20K lbs!

That’s when he told me that he might have gotten the wrong scale ticket from the weigh station where he originally weighed.

Immediately my heart leapt with joy, this is NOT our fault!

Now to get the problem resolved and get this driver back on the road was my only goal.  I was not going to assign blame or make anyone feel bad. 

Hey, we all make mistakes. I do it multiple times every single day.

The owner of the company shot me a text. I'm getting permits from the big guys. They won’t make these mistakes that cost me time and $$$$$.

No problem.  Let me know if you need anything. We are here to help.


After they called the “BIG Guys” they called me about 30 minutes later.

Hey, we can’t get an Idaho permit until Monday. It’s Friday night. And we need to drop this load off tomorrow afternoon.

I told him that I would NOT make any promises.

But my team went to work!

Guess what????

We got the permits that the “BIG Guys” couldn’t get.

My team had the Idaho permit in less than 20 minutes. For the right weight this time.

Here’s the point of all this.

When things don’t go right, smile. I have taught my whole team this.

That right there is how we got the permits. They smiled as they worked and it didn’t take any time at all.

Ok, there might be a little knowledge that went into this too. Lol

Next time you need anything DOT, don’t call the “Big Guys” , call the team who can get it done!
