my second preaching engagement

I did my second ever speaking engagement tonight.

I preached on Half-steps and how the enemy uses them to back us into a corner. (text was David and Bathsheba 2 Sam. 11)

I gave a brief demonstration of how I use half-steps to position people in kung fu, and then talked about the text and then challenged them all to find their unique area of ministry.

it went well. I will do this same presentation in Romania (i leave in 7 days)

Sarah, a friend of mine was captivated by what happened during my presentation. I asked for a volunteer and no one wanted to come up, so in my attempt to get someone I verbally slipped and said "can I get even a small volunteer"

and like a flash a wee little lad named Cowen took off running, and he ran up front to be my volunteer. It was cute, and he did a great job. Sarah commented to me later that it was like what Jesus said about having to be like a child. Here we had all these adults scared to be my volunteer, and here comes this little child who RAN. great thought Sarah.

challenging to me even.

EDIT: I misspelled Coen's name sorry Coen. :)

''My dear brothers, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry,'' (james 1:19)


''for man's anger does not bring about the righteous life that God desires.'' (james 1:20)

ouch that hurts me!

'' 2 O Jehovah, how long shall I cry, and thou wilt not hear? I cry out unto thee of violence, and thou wilt not save. 3 Why dost thou show me iniquity, and look upon perverseness? for destruction and violence are before me; and there is strife, and contention riseth up. 4 Therefore the law is slacked, and justice doth never go forth; for the wicked doth compass about the righteous; therefore justice goeth forth perverted.'' Habakkuk 1:2-4

How many people feel as though they can identify with Habakkuks complaint? What he didn't understand through it all is that God was preparing a judgement for the wicked using the wicked. How ironic that they fall prey to their own ways.

When we look around us at this world we see people who quite often appear to do evil and thrive beause of it. We see this and wonder if God is blind, or maybe we wonder if He really cares. If He is a just God why does He allow this to happen unpunished?

The answer is that God sees and has worked a punishment for the wicked that we don't always understand or see coming. It is always effective and always appropriate to the sin.

the hearing of the Lord

Numbers 11: 1, '' Now the people complained about their hardships in the hearing of the Lord,...''

Has it ever occurred to anyone that every complaint is made in the hearing of the Lord? In fact, everything that is ever said or thought is in the hearing of the Lord

marriage advice


by Vonette Bright

**Here are some practical resources for a healthier marriage: http://www.familylife.com/default.asp

Bill Bright asked me to marry him on our very first date! No, he wasn't the impetuous sort. We had grown up in Coweta, Oklahoma, and we knew each other very well. Bill said he never wanted anyone else to be his wife. For several reasons, we waited for three years to be married.

During that time, we learned a harmonious marriage requires the couple to commit to six basic tenets. Here they are.
First, be certain each of you is rightly related to receive Christ.
Second, attend a pre-marriage conference to test your marriage readiness.
Third, have family devotions daily.
Fourth, pray together morning and night.
Fifth, agree to resolve your differences.
And sixth, be sure you have eyes for no one else.

Friend, build your marriage on Christ. The closer you are to Him, the closer you will be to each other.

God's Providence

God has provided for all $1700 that I needed to go to romania.

I am still raising money for things that I will need while there so keep praying. most of all pray, please. every great work of God in the history of the church was prayed in, prayed up, and prayed over by many many people so pray for me, daily would be nice.

thank you!
