Leavin' on a jet plane...

Taking off this morning for North Carolina, again!  Get ready, get ready, get ready for a LIFE CHANGING weekend, ladies of NC!

My sniffling, sneezing and burns are under control.  And even if they weren't I'd still be going.  (Burns?  Yes.  I poured 2 quarts of boiling water into a pitcher that exploded on me yesterday, down my thigh and onto my foot.  Lovely.)  I just have to laugh.  The crazier stuff gets before I leave the more I know God's fixin' to rock the place!!!

I'm not surprised that stuff like this happens when I leave to preach somewhere...it always does.  Not the same things of course, but a different array of distractions. There are always a lot of them and then I get to the place and God moves.  It's just the way things are.  I know my role is to press through no matter what and GET THERE.

Yesterday when I burned myself I just threw a beach towel over the two quarts of water on the floor (so the dogs wouldn't get burned either - they were my first thought), ran in the other room to Google, "what to do when you get scalded" and followed the directions.  I ran a tub full of tepid/cool water and sat in it for 20 excruciating minutes.  Max sat beside the tub staring at me, very concerned.  Having a cold already the last thing I wanted to do was sit in a tub full of cold water but some things you just have to do for the greater good and this was one.  I sat there in the bathtub watching my watch thinking, "why does this feel like two hours instead of two minutes?!"

One thing I know -- hell is a place I DON'T wanna be.  And there is no tub of tepid water there, folks.  So make sure your relationship with Jesus is genuine and up to date! 

Keep us in prayer this weekend in Gastonia, NC!  I'm so excited about what God is going to do.

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
