Verse of The Day

Are you with Me?

There is a battle raging around us. We have a choice for who and what we will live for. The Kingdom of Darkness is ready to destroy us. We have to decide for ourselves, or the decision will be made for us. It's an all or nothing decision.
The Devil is not interested in taking you captive, he wants to kill you. You have the choice of whether or not you are going to let him.                                                                                                                               
Right now God is asking if you are with Him, and the only answer He is interested in is "to the death". But I guarantee you this, when you ask Him the same question, He has already proved His answer by dying for us. He has already won the battle, we just have to decide if we are with Him in the victory.

Mom, ATF and Flame!!!

Soooo....I guess there are some pretty cool advantages to having your mom tour every weekend with ATF (Acquire the Fire). I mean we miss her a lot at home.....but she is doing some awesome stuff while she is gone. I went with her this past weekend to Kansas City. It was a pretty good trip, though it had a few difficulties. One of the best parts though was seeing Flame in concert!! My mom and sister, Kalyn, had already met Flame and even got me a personal note from him!! So i was obviously pretty excited this weekend about seeing him. He had a great concert and he even did my favorite song, but the best part was that I got to meet him personally later. I had what Tara calls a "personal elevator experience" with Flame and his wife!!! haha....good times.....Mom and Kalyn both had a good message, and I got to video Kalyn. Hopefully I didn't ruin it!!! But over all it was a pretty good trip, and the best part is that we were able to be used by God!!! Mom is in Atlanta today, so keep her in your prayers!!

Living in Him,

The 90 year old Man

There once was a man who was rather wealthy. He lived in a beautiful house surrounded by a magnificent yard. However as he started to get older and his health started to decline, he was forced to move into an old and rather plain nursing home. The day he was moved into the nursing home, he met a man he knew from a while back. The nurse was pushing him in his wheelchair, and he began to talk to this man. The man asked him how he liked his room, and he immediantly expressed his delight with his accomadations. They finished their conversation and the nurse wheeled him back down the hallway. The nurse was quietly pondering something, and then hesitantly broached the subject. She said "Sir, no offense, but you just told that man how much you loved your room, and you haven't even see it yet.", He responded with a smile and said "I know, but i have already decided that I love it!".

I was reminded of this story today, and what a powerful concept it represented. We have the choice of how we are going to respond to the situations around us. We, like the man in the story, can decide early on that no matter what happens, we are going to love the results. If we do that, we can live a life of so much joy, peace and contentment no matter what our circumstances look like!!!

Loving Life from the Beginning,

Not of this World

Recently I have been reminded that we as Christians, are not of this world. God has redeemed us and we are His sons(and daughters). We should not become involved in "civilian" affairs. We are to be "in the world, but not of the world". We should reach out and help people out of the darkness, but we should not join the darkness to do it. We have a Savior and "Hero" who has saved us and we need to work, function and live in His Kingdom, not the Kingdom of this world. As Trip Lee puts it, we are "Between Two Worlds." We live and breath in one world, while we operate out of another.

Trip Lee has a new album called "Between Two Worlds which helps summarize this...Check out His new video "The Invasion (Hero)"
