To God be the Glory

Once again we see the mighty hand of our amazing God. John had his scans today and they showed that the tumor area is drastically further reduced and that what is left is a very small wisp of hazy area. God's truth in the spiritual is becoming evident in the physical, and that is that He has already accomplished John's complete and total healing. Our God is truly awesome!!!

"I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds. Your words, O God, are holy. What God is so great as our God? You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the people." Psalm 77:12-14

What more can we say...except Thank You Lord.

What was ment for evil was redeemed

As many of you may remember two Christian men were recently brutally murdered by extremists in Turkey. What is amazing about this terrible tragedy is that what the enemy thought would defeat the Christians, our awesome God has turned around and brought a nationwide audience to hear of HIS Glory. In Turkey the funeral of these men was broadcast over the TV and as you watch you can see that the people are worshiping God and the name of Jesus is being proclaimed in a very bold way. Our God truly does turn bad things into good for His name.

Swimming with the Dolphins

We went to Discovery Cove in Orlando as part of the LIFE 2007 Conference. It was so much fun and here are some pictures from our swim.

Quote from Mark

"The will of God will never take you where the Grace of God will not protect you"

If I am in a place where the grace of God will not protect me, than I probably got there on my own without Gods guidance.

If I choose a path where I can feel Gods grace peeling away from me, uncovering me slowly as I walk, I probably am going down a path that is not of his choosing.

Clear Scans

As I write this I cry. I am so grateful to our awesome God for His love of us. He is the great healer and is the one who is bringing complete healing to Chris. Today Chris had his 6 month follow up of scans and Chris just called to say they were clear. God how can I thank you enough, how can I love you enough.

God your love is so abundant. Thank you for your unfailing love, for your unfailing faithfulness. I want to personally be reaching out to the God of the Universe. I want to pursue Him with a passion. To get who He really is and have no doubt about how awesome He really is.

Life 2007

Where do you begin with such an amazing week with 18 great teenagers and adults. We just got back from a week in Orlando at a conference with over 7200 students from around the US and world. I can't begin to recap the week but would encourage you to check out http://www.journeyhsm.blogspot.com/. It is wonderful summary by some of the students as to what they experienced.

Personally, I found the week challenging. We began with defining Vintage, which means being authentic. We were challenged to search our view of God and line it up with what the bible says, not what the church teaches.

I spent a lot of time in the "sacred place" a wonderful place to sit at the feet of Jesus. I so needed that personal time with my creator. I was able to journal many of my fears and lay them down at the cross.
