I Think My Eyes Are In Backward

A SHORT STORY – FROM A MADE UP DIARY I think my eyes are in backwards and all I can see right now is myself. I’m blind to the needs of others around me. To me, they don’t even exist. All I can see are my needs. It doesn’t seem to be hurting me, butContinue reading “I Think My Eyes Are In Backward”

The Day I Didn’t Feel Your Prayers

Next Read – Bonhoeffer

Finally finished JESUS MANIFESTO and it was worth taking my time. So full of words that point the soul in the direction of Jesus Christ. As a worship leader, I long to point to Jesus week after week – more so now, after reading this book, than ever. Interesting that in this book were severalContinue reading “Next Read – Bonhoeffer”

Happy Baseball Day!

It’s that time of year again!! I’m so excited. For me Opening Day really is like a holiday. That makes last night Baseball’s Eve. My favorite baseball carol is probably “Take Me Out To The Ballgame” but that is probably everybody’s favorite. I also like the clapping song, you know, the one with 2 clapsContinue reading “Happy Baseball Day!”

While reading this book, I have been very encouraged and affirmed, as I’m reminded of who I am “In Christ.” I remember beingContinue reading “Is Jesus Center?”

The World is Worshipping. Are You?

Something occurred to me over the weekend. I’m sure that I’ve tried to think this thought before, but a combination reading tweets and reading bloggers takes on the Oscars over the weekend caused me to have an epiphany. This is what the world worships; ENTERTAINMENT. At least, it is one of their idols or falseContinue reading “The World is Worshipping. Are You?”

Dream the Impossible Dream

I have always been a dreamer. My parents can bear witness to this fact. In elementary school my struggle with classwork or homework was never my ability to understand what I was learning, but rather my extraordinary ability to “drift off.” I was a world class day dreamer. The teacher would begin teaching and withoutContinue reading “Dream the Impossible Dream”

SURRENDER

Today’s word is… “Surrender” This is such an important word when it comes to worship. Joe spoke yesterday about the big “S” as well as the big “O” obedience and the big “C” commitment. I’ll focus on Surrender. We must surrender in order for worship to take place. In fact God says this through HisContinue reading “SURRENDER”
