PASSION-EVEN SO COME
I spent the end of last week in Atlanta at Passion 2012 and the coolest moment for me was standing next to Matt Maher as they were closing out the night on Wednesday.
Matt Maher wrote all the music for Passion 2012 with Chris Tomlin & Jason Ingram. They spend 2 weeks at Chris Tomlin's house writing back in April, and then they came back in November and finished them up. As I looked out over the Georgia Dome at 45,000 college students singing and yelling with their hands in the air, I looked over and Matt Marr was standing next to me.
He was yelling out the words he wrote and pointing his finger up in the air singing, “ We raise our white flag, we surrender all to you…. It’s all for you…… we raise our white flag, the war over…. love has come…. your love has won!”
I've heard from several friends that attend Canyon Ridge Christian Church that Tim Tebow will be speaking at the church March 3rd & 4th. More details to come as they are announced. You can check out Canyon Ridge's website by clicking here.
Yesterday I heard "God's Not Dead" the latest single from the Newsboys. I couldn't believe what I heard. All of a sudden I was back in the 90's listening to DC Talk. The video below explains what I mean ...........
Very interesting article from Kara Powell from Fuller Youth Institute talking about why so many students don’t stick with their Christian faith after high school. (This was on Relevantmagazine.com)
She says there’s a sociologist names Tim Clydesdale— who says after students graduate from high school. They place important parts of themselves in an "identity lock-box," and their faith is often part of that.
I've watched this video several times, it's done two things for me..... 1. Made me very grateful for the blessings and people that God has placed in my life....2. Made me take a look at the "problems" in my life and realize how small they are in the grand scheme of things. Grab a couple tissues check out this video from Ben Breedlove....
My gut tells me that the following "Top 10" list is one of the view on the internet that won't contain the names Kim Kardashian, Lady Gaga, or Katy Perry.
Call them resolutions, call them goals... If I don't make a list of things I want to accomplish, I find myself looking back and not really doing much with the new year. Here's my 2012 list.
1. Spend more time with Vanessa. With 6 kids time is really a valuable commodity. This year I want to manage my time so that I'm spending more quality time with my wife.
2. Read. This is on my list every year, but it seems to fall to the wayside come spring. This year, reading 14 books in my goal.
3. Starting a college fund for the kids....... I need to start now if I'm gonning to send 6 kids to college!
4. Make healthy choices when it comes to eating.
