Mental Fog...

I have been in a mental fog all day today. It is as if a blanket is over my mind and it is clouding my perceptions. Today my beautiful daughter had a Christmas program at her school. It was great seeing the kids singing praises. Her 2-year olds class were cute with their little bells. Once I get the picture off of my camera I will upload one or two. Even through my metal fog God taught me something.

When my daughter walked into the room where the parents were sitting she was all smiles. Then once she saw "daddy" she began to pull for me and cried. I was embarrassed because she was the only shield that did that. One of her teachers picked her up and they went onstage and did fine. As I was reflecting on this later I thought about how this was a perfect illustration of how our relationship with God should be. My daughter wants to be around me all the time. If I am in the house she wants to be where I am. She love mommy, she love grandpa, grandma, and nana, but Daddy is Daddy.


Just One Step Away...

I was sitting in court the other day, hoping to get defensive driving, and God took me to Matthew 25:1-13. I have read the story of the Ten Virgins before and I really loved the adaptation that Prv31 was in at our church during the summer. I was ready with pen and paper to talk about, always being ready for God's return but God always takes me in a different direction. Follow Me:

"At that time the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. "Here we have 10 people who have planned, prepared, and executed so that they might acheive their chief aim in life. I know that in today's "enlightened" world marriage is characterized as more of a burden than a blessing. However during this time getting married was one of the highest honors one could have. Especially if the Husband-to-be is wealthy, good-looking, etc... So they were ready. Each had planned well.Five of them were foolish and five were wise. The foo…

Crazy Week...

We just finished up an audit at my job, Prv31 and I have not been sleeping very well over the last several days. She's sick and I have been trying to to get sick. Sorry for the delay on the Living Richly.

God is good though. Through it all he as given me a new sermon topic. I'll share more on that later.

Be on the lookout in the next few weeks for more news on our web venture. Check out when you have a chance.

A Call to Prayer...

Well I stepped out on faith today. I am believing that God is going to bless this business venture that I have started. Prv31 and I purchased the domain and are using it to market a wonderful ebook collection of christmas cookie recipes. We are testing various forms of internet marketing that we want to use for a larger venture that we have planned for 2006. Today we purchased 100K targeted users to our site and we want to get a 5% response rate for our product. Pray with us and we will all see how god is moving.

Living Richly Pt 1.

Your Inner World Creates Your Outer World!

What is on the inside of you? God calls us to be different, more, bigger. Everything about God is bigger so if we are His children how can we be anything but. In order to do that however we have to reframe who we are. In Hebrews 12:2 it reads, "Do not conform any longer to the patterns of this world..." The words "any longer" lets us know that God doesn't care about who we used to be. No more, "I've always been this way", or, "That's how I am". You are a new creation in Christ. The old you has passed away and we are supposed to present a new person to God. I mean, come on, God knows who we used to hang around with and where we used to go. He know what you did last summer and last night. He sees the entire breadth of our lives and still says, "I can use that one".

Never Fret Over Things Past!

God knows that your experiences are there to make you stong. Your trials are just weights to b…

Living Richly...

Over the next few weeks I will be posting some messages that I have entitled "Living the Rich Life". Our God is a God who gives abundantly above all that we could ever ask or think. The challenge we have is that when we go to His throne we ask for only a little bit. Father empower me to ask you for all that you have for me. I don't want to be accused of putting God in a box.
