Never Alone

Standing on this mountaintop Looking just how far we've come Knowing that for every step You were with us Kneeling on this battle ground Seeing just how much You've done Knowing every victory Is Your power in us Scars and struggles on the way But with joy our hearts can say Yes, our hearts can say Never once did we ever walk alone Never once did You leave us on our own You are faithful, God, You are faithful "Never Once" by Matt Redman Yesterday morning as I drove to work, I cranked the volume on the praise & worship music.  My best times with God are in my 20 minute drive to work...just me & Him.  The above song began to play.  Have you heard it?  Powerful stuff.  Our worship team at  Victory Church ,  Warr Acres , sings it often.   I love it.   Even though I've heard it and sung it many times, yesterday it just really REALLY sunk in. As I listened to the words and thought of all of the valleys & battles

Stop Comparing & Be You!

Romans 12:4-6 (MSG) In this way we are like the various parts of a human body. Each part gets its meaning from the body as a whole, not the other way around. The body we're talking about is Christ's body of chosen people. Each of us finds our meaning and function as a part of his body. But as a chopped-off finger or cut-off toe we wouldn't amount to much, would we? So since we find ourselves fashioned into all these excellently formed and marvelously functioning parts in Christ's body, let's just go ahead and be what we were made to be, without enviously or pridefully comparing ourselves with each other, or trying to be something we aren't. A few days ago during my quiet time I read this passage of scripture and it really jumped off the page to me.  I've read this passage many times before, but never in The Message version.   I love the entire chapter of Romans 12, but I want to focus on these few verses in this post today. What is my purpose? 

Hello...It's Been Awhile!

Hello friends!  My blog has been severely neglected the last 6 months.  We moved to Oklahoma City in October to be the Campus Pastor's at Victory Church OKC and to say it has been crazy has been an understatement.  It has been a wild ride, but such an amazing one!!  There is nothing like being smack dab in the middle of God's will.  We LOVE LOVE LOVE it here & I'm absolutely blown away at what God is doing.  He is so faithful.  I just returned from an incredible weekend at Pink Impact at Gateway Church in Southlake, TX and while I was there God reminded me about this blog.  So, I'm back!  I don't have much time today, but I've made a commitment to myself and Him that I will be more faithful to writing.  I look forward to sharing with you what God has been doing in our lives, as well as anything He lays upon my heart to share.  Talk to you soon!! Much love.
