Spread YOUR light

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.

Genesis 1:1 

NASA reached mars and live-streamed a live video back to the world through social media the other day.  It was pretty darn cool to see.

Here’s my question for you.  When you first saw the feed what did you think?

Was it, Man can do anything!

Or Maybe, WOW that’s pretty awesome

OR possibly even, God is allowing this to happen, thank you for allowing us to see even more of your creation.

For me, it was a mixture.  My thought was, “holy cow, God this is amazing that we were able to accomplish this. How amazing is that you give us the technology to go there, stream it back to the world, and explore another one of your creations. “

The very first verse of the best-selling book of all times says, “God created the heavens and the earth.”

I might be wrong, but I believe that the heavens include the other planets, the sun, the moon, what we call our solar system.  

I believe that God created it and is now giving us the opportunity to explore it more in-depth.  

It’s pretty darn awesome if you ask me.  

Today I want to ask you how you look at every creation God has made.  Look deep into your thoughts to see if you truly give God credit for everything he created.  

He created the ocean, the mountains, the trees, rocks, rivers, technology, animals, and YOU.  

The same God that created all of this created us.  

He knew us before we were ever born.  He gives us the opportunity to make mistakes and to grow in many different ways. But most of all he created us.

I was standing at the ocean the other day looking out across the vast expanse of water and could see the curvature of the world.  What I said was, “Wow, God you created something pretty darn amazing here!  And thank you for sharing it with us.”

When was the last time you didn’t share your faith with the world?

Have you ever hidden your “Light of Jesus” under a bowl, or tried to cover it up so you would fit in better?

Growing up, my whole family did a great job of keeping Christ and God as a major part of our lives.  

Could we have done better? You bet we could have, but hey, we can always do better.

Then as I entered into my teenage years and started growing into my “own person” I noticed that there were times I hid my faith to fit in better.  

I covered up my light of Jesus.

Now it’s the exact opposite.  If someone can’t accept me as a person who loves God and Christ and wants to share that with the world, then I’m sorry but I guess it’s just not important that we are close.  

Today I want to encourage everyone to share the fact that God created everything!  Share it with the world.  Share that you are a believer, and share God’s First Life with everyone one you know.  


Lord God today we are extremely thankful that you created the heavens and the earth and we want to ask that you help us to share your creation with everyone!  Help us to let the whole world know that you are the one who created everything in the universe.  You created every planet, every plant, every animal, every person!  You are amazing.  Thank you for creating so much, thank you for creating us.  God, help us to never cover our light of Jesus up, ever again.  Help us to put it out on a pole so that the rest of the world knows that we know you are amazing.  Help us to tell everyone we meet that you are the one and only reason that we have anything and that you created everything. Thank you for giving us the technology to spread your word even further.

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!
