Seven Things...

Sydney (the most lovely woman in the world...my wife), tagged me to list Seven things about me. Here goes:

1. I love Jesus.

2. I love my wife. She is smart, beautiful, kind, sweet, unbelievable with our kids. She knows God's Word like nobody's business. I am blessed!

3. I dig playing the Guitar. I'm playing a Big Baby Taylor. It sounds great and was not expensive. I just played some songs from my recent birthday presents, songbooks from David Crowder*Band, Remedy, and Chris Tomlin, See the Morning.

4. I am super decisive about some things (stuff in the Bible, moral decisions, most business decisions), but indecisive with others (which shirt to get...).

5. I am really relational. I would not like to be on a desert island all alone for a week. It is such a kick to encourage people in Jesus. Thank you, Lord, for allowing me that privilege.

6. I really enjoy the TV show, 24. Now, for my next big present, I Jack Bauer's pistol. It is an HK USP. OK, maybe that makes me weird, but so be it.

7. When I get to Heaven, to be before the Lord, I want a really FAT crown to lay before His feet! What a wonderful Day that will be.

Did you know today that you are loved by God? That is true of everyone. In addition, if you belong to Jesus and He resides in you, you are accepted by God and a treasured possession of His?

I needed to hear that. I'm a little discouraged today. This "Burning the Ships" thing can lead to some unknowns...and that's where we are right now.

But this I know, "My God is a Consuming Fire," and I belong to Him. So, I will trust Him when I feel all great, and when I don't. He is faithful. When I wonder about God's commitment to His Glory, and to me inside that, I just look at the Cross of Jesus. Look there with me now. There hangs the price God was willing to pay for you and me. We can trust Him.

Isaiah 40:26

Lift your eyes and look to the heavens: Who created all these? He who brings out the starry host one by one, and calls them each by name. Because of his great power and mighty strength, not one of them is missing.

Coolest Things of the Day...

  • I am now the College-Age Minister at my church...Wow, do I need Jesus!
