If you are a person who prays, please read this!


I really don't know where I'd be without the power of prayer and fasting.  I also don't know where I'd be without people in my life who are actively doing the same on behalf of me, and others.  History belongs to those who pray!!

Right now I'm praying for a lot of people in very serious situations that need a miracle or else.  My heart is very heavy for a few people who have contacted me this week.  One of them that is on my heart most are Pastor Mike and Judy Cayson from right here in Tampa.  They pastor at The Connection AG.  Last evening their daughter Bethany went into cardiac arrest and is in a medically induced coma right now.  We have activated our prayer team at Celebration on behalf of Bethany and her parents and I am asking everybody who reads my blog to pray.  We need to stand in the gap for these folks and not stop til' the breakthrough comes.  I ask you to put them on your prayer list whether you know them or not.  Thank you so much!!

So many people have contacted me with heavy needs this week, but at the same time I'm feeling a bit heavy myself and not just the fact that I need to lose some weight.  (LOL)  Being as transparent as I can be, there are some big personal prayer needs in my own life where I need a divine intervention from God.  At the same time I'm believing for others, I'm needing others to believe for me.

I wish I would have gotten this up on the blog this morning but it's been a busy day with so many things going on.  I believe just the right people who know how to reach the throne of God.

The circumstances are great, but we serve a God who is greater!!  Right now my focus is in looking to how big my God is and not how big the issues seem.  Join me in faith believing.  Love you all...

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
