Starting Out Blind

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

I grew up on the other side of Dallas, in an area known as Oak Cliff. Literally two minutes from downtown Dallas. Every day I would get up, and I would see the Dallas skyline. I knew it very well. I lived my entire life in its shadow. I knew where every building was. I could draw it exactly the...

Step One

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

When I played football as a kid, our coach would have us sit on the floor in the locker room before games. Our one job during this time was to imagine ourselves running plays perfectly in our minds. He would call a play, and we would run it mentally. He would yell out “Blast!” and I...

He Gave Everything

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

Have you ever been around a kid who wasn’t getting his way? I saw this little kid at a restaurant one time, his name was Timmy, and he was a grade-A, number-one brat. (I get it. Young children are a handful. One time, I took my nephew to the arboretum, where he pitched a fit, and we walked...

Who Are You Imitating?

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. — Ephesians 5:1–2 Have you heard this story? A new bride is making her first big dinner for her husband and tries her hand...

World-Changing Suffering

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

I am more. I have worked much harder, been in prison more frequently, been flogged more severely, and been exposed to death again and again. Five times I received from the Jews the forty lashes minus one. Three times I was beaten with rods, once I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, I...

Three Reasons You Give Up On Your Goals

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. Therefore I do...

Gratitude Over Guilt

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

Sometimes I‘ll be sitting around, minding my own business, and BAM! I am struck by overwhelming feelings of guilt, but not because I did anything. These feelings are completely out of the blue. So I start analyzing everything, every conversation I have ever had, every interaction, every...

Feeling Inadequate

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

Sometimes I want people to think I’m a better person than I actually am, especially when that person is in a position of authority over me. One time, when I went to get a physical, the doctor and I were talking about my diet. She asked me what I usually ate for breakfast, and I lied. I...

Have you ever actually read the laws surrounding tithes? They are found in Deuteronomy 14:22–29. For the most part, they are exactly what you would expect: bring a tenth of all you produce to the place God has set aside (i.e., your church). That’s what you expect, right? Everyone...

Struggles Make Me Better

Posted by Rocky Hernandez on

Do you ever think it’s weird you’re so religious? You’re so devoted, in fact, you immediately started saying, “I’m not religious, I have a relationship!” (Non-churchy people don’t think in those terms, BTW). Not to mention the fact that you care enough...
