DO YOU EVER...


Spend time praying at the altar and somebody comes behind you are starts praying for you, and begins rubbing your shoulders and you just never want that prayer to end...??   (Thank you, person who did this for me a few weeks ago...)


Eat a whole plate of food and then think, "you know, I really didn't like that..."?  (I have and I always hate it when I do that.  How dumb is that, really?)

Have somebody comment on your facebook status and you really have no idea why they posted what they did and instead of telling them off or deleting it you just leave it and shake your head?  (I had this happen a year ago when Maddie broke her back.  I posted a plea for everyone to please pray for our puppy who had just broken her back and was possibly going to have to be put to sleep.  Right underneath it a missionary posted, "Help!  We need another $1,500 in pledges to get to the field!  Act now and help us!  Here is our account number..."  I wondered what in the world that had to do with our dog's broken back and possible impending and untimely death, but whatever...)

Wonder why this Charlie Sheen thing is such a big deal?  (I guess I have pastored so many people who have these kind of mental problems, it doesn't seem like such an outlandish thing to me.  I've met countless Charlie Sheens...they just haven't had their own show or been famous.  They have, however, needed medication and/or deliverance.)

Think to yourself that the ads in magazines seem to get more plentiful with less actual articles than ever before? 

Look forward to Jimmy Fallon's "Thank You Cards" like I do?

Have people at the nail salon ask  you if you want an eyebrow wax when you really truly don't need one?  

Have family members who assume the dishes in the dishwasher are clean but put them all away when they are dirty?  Then you spend the next fifteen minutes searching through the cupboards trying to find all the dirty dishes and put them back in the washer.  Yeah.

Assume the dishes in the dishwasher are dirty and put some dirty ones in there, only to realize the ones in there were clean?

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

Why You Should Never Hijack a Comment Thread
Social media etiquette 101

One surefire way to kill your influence in social media and wear out your welcome fast is to become involved in derailing somebody’s comment thread with your own agenda. Networking and hijacking aren’t the same thing. It’s surprising how many people don’t understand that this is a guarantee for tearing down a platform as quickly as you build it. Passion is good, even necessary. I appreciate people's zeal for their personal core values. What is not appreciated is the attempt at a redirection of a comment thread when the comment has little or nothing to do with an original post or is twisted at best. Social media provides ample opportunity for all of us to share what’s important to us on our own platform. Eliciting others’ responses and developing connections largely depends on our ability to communicate and compel. Some people are open to receiving private communication from others although they aren’t always able to answer personally or at length. But hijacking a comment threa
