Revealed when you least expect it

I found a funny video on Godtube labled Horrible Baby Sitter.

Like the babysitter in this video we may think no one sees what is going on in our everyday life until the truth is revealed. The ending of this video shows that only God can erase sin and bring a person to Himself. As I thought about it I was reminded that even Christians who are on their way to heaven need to remember that they have a God who sees our life and corrects us as father would because He loves us and wants us to live an abundant life. Have you ever had a moment of "corrective revelation"?

"I have a dream"----What is your Character?

Martin Luther King Day, Written Sunday---
Earlier today after church my husband and I talked to our son , Joshua about his plans since there is no school on Martin Luther King Day. He'll be working and studying for midterms. I got wondering if sometimes special days slip by as just an extra day off without thought about what the day means. I began to think about Kings famous "I have a dream speech" and one line resounded in my spirit. " I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character." I ask myself black, white, yellow, whatever color we are....looking to the truth of this statement would we be satisfied with the judgment of our character? I'm not talking about legalistic rules that bind us and take our freedom from us, but of choosing to do that wihich is right in God's eyes. I'm talking about choosing to walk in intergrity rather than the easy way which selfishly chooses that which helps our cause regardless of the effects on others. If people judged us upon our character would they find us honest and hardworking? Would they find us growing in the fruit of the Spirit and walking in the character of God? What steps are you taking this year to improve your godly character. What changes would you have to make if truly others judged us by our character rather than something as superficial as our color. Listen to the whole Martin Luther King speech with this link and ask the Lord to challenge you on this day of remembrance.

Principles of Praise

Pastor John has been speaking about the Principles of Praise the past few weeks and I'll have the sermons loaded on the web-site soon. One comment he made has really stuck with me. He said that he loves to sing and praise in the car. That is so true. We've been married 20 years and I can attest we've always had praise on in the car and he loves it....thankfully as he mentioned....he never closes his eyes while driving. Tonight as I was on God tube I came across a sweet video of a gentelman singing in his car with all his heart. Here it is. What ways do you like to praise the Lord? I love to type my praise on the computer while listening to praise music. Perhaps you'd like to upload a video to and then either send me a link to upload it here through the comments page of the church website or the comments here on the blog . We'd love to hear from you today. Praise the Lord.
