Either we trust God or we don't...

"The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way." Psalm 37:23

Jordan did not ship out yesterday. It's pretty definite that he won't.

It's okay.

No, not because I'm his Mom and don't relish the thought of any of my offspring leaving.  I am in reality and realize they won't always live with me nor is that God's plan.  I know things and seasons will change.

This is not about me.  At all!   It's about him and what God is doing in his life.

As long as Jordan is surrendered fully to the Lord, things are going to be more than alright.  No the path will not always be easy.  Nobody ever promised that.  But I'm the kind of believer who is fully convinced that when we totally abandon ourselves to the Lord He can't help but intervene on our behalf. 

Jordan was dedicated as a baby to the Lord, for His purposes.  Not for mine, not for his Dad's, not for the military's or anyone else's but God's.  And as Jordan surrenders to the Lord, He will have His way.   He IS having His way come hell or high water.  While there are some things that will be much clearer in the days to come that I can talk about more as the days unfold,  let me just say thanks for your prayers and things are going to be more than alright.

We serve Jesus.  This is not a pie in the sky- mamby pamby-cliche ridden-anemic set of values -- but a living, breathing FAITH THAT WORKS.

Since Friday, your face has come to my mind more times than I can count. Each time I have seriously gone to prayer for you and your family. When plans are changed mid-stream, it is ALL GOD! God is stepping in to change the direction of Jordan's ship. I'm praying that he will remain tender to the voice of God, as His child, and that God will clearly show him His path for his life. God's will...God's way! I've breathed a sigh of relief for all of you! I'm still praying, always...for my favorite blogger! xo
Yes, God is control and directing our children's lives. Not necessarily what I thought they should or would do at this point.

But I'm trusting....I'm with ya sis!

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
