Welcome to the World of aLan Tait

Do it true!

The greatest risk is not taking one.

Hi! Welcome to

I am aLan Tait - friends call me Lan!

I am a guy that believes!

Belief is important to me.

Never look back...
Never look down...
Never let go...
... so that others may live!

If you think you can...
If you think you can't...


"You must face your fear if you are to overcome it.
Fear is the future.
There is no fear in the present - only action and reaction"
~ ~ ~ Oonu (Dinotopia) ~ ~ ~

"What you're really afraid of... your past."
~ ~ ~ David ben David ~ ~ ~

The Bible says in Prov 23:7 NASB For as he thinks within himself, so he is.

I am building an Oikos (a "family") that thinks the right way. Who has a little faith, a little hope, a little trust in God that God has a plan. To walk with me in like and can come here with no doubt that that is what they want, what God wants.

I want a partner, someone I can really love who really has the strength to face life as it is and make something better. It takes real guts to make life better!

I am a man that believes in the Bible... I see how powerful the Bible is in it Original Form. The Original Bible can fully transform lives.

(Rom 12:1-2 NIV) Therefore, I urge you, brothers, in view of God's mercy, to offer your bodies as living sacrifices, holy and pleasing to God--this is your spiritual act of worship. {2} Do not conform any longer to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is--his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Do not conform to the patterns of this world... Powerful words that show us that just because something is legal or is socially acceptable does not make it RIGHT!

Be transformed by the renewing of your minds.

I was a man that used to think I was stupid. In fact, a teacher in High School was the very first person to tell me I wasn't stupid, but instead I am very intelligent! You see, what I believed was what made all the difference.

As a boy my father always said I was stupid and the child in me simply believed it! Even now, when I get alone, I feel stupid! The child in me still hears the harsh lies of my father.

So I need to surround myself with people who realize the truth and accept the truth. I renew my mind by accepting the truth from the people around me who are HONEST and also who are seeking God in their lives and relationships. The Bible says...

(John 8:31-32 NIV) To the Jews who had believed him, Jesus (Yeshua) said, "If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples. {32} Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free."

To really be free of conforming to the patterns of this world, we must renew our minds by learning and obeying the teachings of Yeshua (Jesus), for when we know the TRUTH, the truth will set us free!

This is what I want, I was a partner that is willing to be centered on God, not on the way or patterns of this world.

(Acts 20:35 NIV) In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'"

This is one more key to having a great life. Give more, and take less. That is the forth code of Dinotopia. You can read about the Code of Dinotopia on my website if you want.

I believe the writer of the Dinotopia was looking for a simple way to express Biblical Truth to children. That webpage is a work in progress so forgive me for spelling errors, ok?

I am a giver. I call myself a D.O.G. (Depends On God) rather than a C.A.T. (Centered Around Themselves).

Survival of all or none is the first Code of Dinotopia - when you see yourself in a symbiont circle with others, you realize that to give more and take less, or that it is more blessed to give than to receive is the way to live a rich and full life.

A rich life is not one with a lot of money. A rich life is one that enriches the lives of those it touches by knowing that God is the center of their life, and that GDMJ - God Don't Make Junk!

That takes faith and Understanding!

Today, most people want Independence...

The reason is because they are selfish and self-centered and they fear that someone else may get something more then they get.

One day, I was reading the USA Declaration of Independence and I realized that the men who signed that were not just declaring to be free of England. The last line says this...

"And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our sacred Honor."

Many of those who signed lost everything on earth, because they were in dependence on God and on the symbiont circle they had with each other.

It was then that I realized that I possess in my life the independence that so many want and never get. The difference is simply a space...
"In dependence" to God, not
"Independence" on myself.

That little space is what makes my life different and allows me to focus only on what God wants.
