Yawn...


I listened to this song over and over last night..."the Broken and the Tired" by Elevation Church Worship.  Love their worship, and love Steven Furtick's preaching!

I wish I could say I'm going into Sunday rested but I'm going into it exhausted and feeling like I could sleep for  month.  I'm pushing through the extreme fatigue and I'm very excited that it's "National Back to Church Sunday" and we'll be celebrating that at the church today.  I know it's going to be a great day!  This morning we've got rehearsal, then I teach class, followed by continental breakfast in the cafe, morning worship, then a choir luncheon and another choir rehearsal, then home to sleep.

I wish a sacred day of rest was in store this week but alas, it's not as Monday's going to take off like a rocket and I'm going to be speaking at The Experience Conference in Lakeland on Friday and Saturday and the next weekend is The Spice Conference (our marriage conference)  at Celebration Church, and the following weekend is Fall Breakaway Conference in Orlando and I've got responsibilities there.  So it's basically going to go 90 to nothing until the end of the month and right now I have October 8th circled on my calendar  (the next Fun Friday after all that.) I'm holding on for it and praying in advance that there be no emergencies that day.

God is doing great things but I could use a nap.  :)
Over the next few weeks I'll be getting them here and there on the fly.  The JOY of the Lord is my strength...

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

Excellent teaching on Criticism

My friend Pastor Leanne posted this today on her Myspace blog and I thought it was excellent and so timely. It's a blog post from Pastor Perry Noble , about criticism. I think it's perfect for the pastors at Relevant Church right now, as well as any other person going through this. I would like to note that when he says, "when God begins to move" it wouldn't necessarily just pertain to your church but to your life, your family, your marriage, anything that concerns you. I have found that the greater God does things in my life and the more He blessed me the more I should expect it. This teaching is good, so good I was almost wavin' a hanky in my office. Okay, here we go... You Will Be Criticized When God Begins To Move–Expect It And Get Over It. (Pastor Perry Noble at http://www.perrynoble.com/ ) I've never met a devil worshiper–to my knowledge that is. When I first became a Christian I was convinced that I needed to do all that I could to be ready to c
