Another great time of prayer



We had a great night of prayer at our leadership prayer meeting last night at our home. Awesome stuff. The Lord is up to something BIG.


Blog readers...can't go into details right now but the Lord knows... would you please pray for our church? There are incredible possibilities on the line right now that could open up all of heaven for us. I mean, if something happens that Larry and I are praying about it would be the greatest thing to ever happen in the history of our church. We need some people who will P.U.S.H. (pray until something happens) with us. Nothing would please me more than to report back here with a testimony that will blow your minds! Thank you for standing in the gap with us, even without me giving all the specifics.

By the way, my calendar appears to be filling for 2008 more for ministry outside the church. Last year it was crazy. I was gone somewhere every month. As much as I love, and I do mean absolutely LOVE to travel and minister, there were times in '07 where I said to myself, "whew! thank the Lord I'm going to be home this Fri/Sat!" I was gone on Sunday a few times last year too, which I do on rare occasions when I feel the Lord direct me to accept something that will have me away on a Sunday. I love to minister God's Word, but there is nothing like coming home! Nothing like being in my own bed, nothing like being with my family, nothing like being in my church.

By the way, did I mention that last week Larry and I got the written invitation for a trip back to Africa? I'm smiling. This time they want Larry to come with me as well and I'd like to take Jordan if possible as well as a team from the church. I realize things are really crazy over in Kenya right now but by the time we go back I feel confident all of this will calm down.

Things are poised for an unbelievable year. Again, please pray with me for a divine miracle of God for our church. I will keep you postedl.

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

This Could Have Ruined Everything... (But It Didn't!)

 No one would ever guess what happened to me this weekend in Jacksonville, Florida...so I'm going to tell you. :) As I was preaching at the Fearless Tour at New Hope Assembly of God this weekend,  I got choked up, literally. For probably 2-3 minutes I coughed profusely and greatly struggled. Then I drank some water and kept preaching. Everyone was gracious to give me a few moments to get my bearings. If you were there, you'll remember it! What no one realized at the time was that I swallowed a bug that flew right in while I was preaching! So disgusting! I said nothing because I was at a point in the sermon where I was really connecting and I knew if I said, "I swallowed a bug," everyone would either laugh profusely or be really concerned, or start feeling sorry for me.  And at that point whey wouldn't be thinking about the message anymore, but the fact that I had just swallowed a bug. They would then imagine what it would be like, and feel grossed out which

What Verbal Abuse is Really Like, and Why We Must Care
Guest Post: Terri von Wood

In my speaking travels, I meet the most amazing people. Some are connections that go beyond just a night or a weekend of preac hing. One day on my journey, I met Terri von Wood, and we immediately clicked and have been friends ever since.  Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.   *** People who have never suffered through or witnessed abuse (including pastors) often don't know how to help women in abusive situations. Knowledge is power and it is my belief that if the church understood the prevalence of abuse, help would be made available.  First, we must acknowledge that the divorce rate is the same  in the church as in the world.  Second, we must understand that the 50% divorce rate does not include all the women who are abused but stay because they do not know what else to do or do not have anyone to turn to.  If those women we
