Move Those Mountains

This post is more for me than anyone I guess but today has been crazy and It isn't even noon. I have had to opportunity to fight a fire a large with my brothers and sisters of the ACFD, get relieved to go home, clean up and get ready to send off a dear friend of our church that passed away this week. Later tonight at 6:30pm I will lead our Wednesday night prayer meeting and bible study.

I am not posting this for attention or replies. I just want to thank God for revealing to me that for much of my life I have been waiting on God for the next thing rather than fully living in all He has provided in the now. I can't believe I get to do what I do and know the people I know.

Also, many may think that conducting a funeral comes easy to a Pastor but truthfully it is not. I am fortunate enough today to know this sweet lady lived her eulogy. She lived Jesus in front of all and walked humbly. Thanks for taking a minute to read this and whatever you do today, thank God for providing it.

If you think you don't have the faith to make it, take heart! Jesus said in Luke 17:6, that if you have the faith the size of a mustard seed you can move mountains! That's the funny thing about faith. It is always stronger than you think and like a muscle only hurts when you use it :)

Be blessed today and move those mountains!


Thank God For The Roundabouts

Random thought for tonight's lesson: 

Exodus 13:17 says that when Pharaoh let the Israelites go, God did not lead them along the main road which was the shortest route because it was more dangerous. He took them on a roundabout way through the wilderness while guiding them with a pillar of cloud during the day and a pillar of fire by night. Sounds like the journeys God sends us on may not be the most direct route, but there are reasons He takes us on the roundabout. Also, He guides us if we will just look for Him! 

What lesson has God showed you on your roundabout journey?


The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven Retracts His Story

I saw this in "Christianity Today" June 2018 this morning. Alex Malarkey who wrote with his father, "The Boy Who Came Back From Heaven" said he made it up, now he is suing the publisher. Yet another example of why we must filter everything we take in with the unchanging truths of the Bible. It's kind of ironic that his last name is Malarkey don't you think?
