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...

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

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

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
