VOICE OF TRUTH BY CASTING CROWNS
"Don't wanna forget or take for granted... That it's a beautiful life we live"
That’s the first lyric I heard after our newborn decided to pee on me while changing his diaper. I was SOOOOOOOO frustrated. I was in the beginning stages of planning my pity party when I heard "Don't wanna forget or take for granted... That it's a beautiful life we live".
All of a sudden I went from frustration to being thankful.
Yes, I had just been peed on my a two week old little boy… But I was able to hold that little boy and love on him.
We talked with Pastor Jay Searley from Grace Church in Reno about the shcool shooting. We asked him "What did you do first when you heard the news?"
Halloween is right around the corner… I think I have gone through all the phases of Halloween in my Christian walk. I’ve ignored it, only participated in church events and have turned out the porch light early so I could still take some of the good candy for myself.
I am always game for a challenge… that’s where Pastor Jim Crews of Valley Bible Fellowship in Las Vegas comes in. Who knew that Halloween just might be the best day of the year to connect with our neighbors and show them love… ß Did I really just say that out loud? You’ll understand how I came to that conclusion after checking out what Pastor Jim had to say about Halloween…
My wife wrote a GREAT blog about familiar pop music in church.
I got my 11 year old a phone for her birthday. I know, 11! Crazy. Except that I forgot to pick her up one time from an after school thing, and when I forgot again last week, thankfully she just called me to come get her. I found this on Pinterest and thought it was a great thing to go over with her.
1. Rest. No matter how busy things get, make sure to set aside time to rest.
2. Makes sure to prioritize what you "have" to do. There is only so many hours in a day. Make a list and put the important things to be done at the top of the list.
3. Make sure Love Others is at the top of that important to do list.
Dave from Sidewalk Prophets talks about perspective behind music reflected toward God and how songs can get ahead of culture rather than follow culture.
Here's a guest blog from Chef Phillip Dell:
Galatians 5:22 says “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”
We all need to let God have control of our lives and let His Spirit manifest these fruit in us. Each of the fruit has a purpose and a blessing for us and for those around us, but I want to take a minute and focus on a few that are especially helpful as you seek to transform your life.
