Wherever you are in life, God is waiting for you.
He is there ready to stretch out his hands to lift you up,
To cover you with his wings to protect you

If God parted the Red Seas
if He stopped the day from turning into night.
If God healed on the Sabbath,
If He brought a man back to life

If God confronted His enemies
And the enemies of His people
If God brings the rain on both the just and the unjust
If God made a donkey to speak

If God brought forth the prisoners unto freedom
And set the many captives free
God is waiting for you, He is there ready

If God speaks to you quietly
In the middle of an angry storm
If God presents you in front of your enemies
Who wish to harm you
He is there

There’s nothing that God cannot do
Remember He has done it all!
Time and time again
God is your Creator
God is your strength
God is your peace
God is your Champion
God is your Victory!

If God is for you
Who or what can possibly stand against you?

I noticed that there were a couple of Comments on Annual Notices of Changes. Due to a problem with a malfunctioning comment system, which has been dealt with (I hope), I lost all your comments. I really hated that.

Last Night in Las Vegas

I originally wrote this the night after the attack, but for some reason it didn’t get published!

No, I am not leaving Las Vegas. I wish I were. But many have already heard about the tragic loss of 58 lives (I’m sure the number will rise) along with the many who have been physically and most likely mentally hurt. Thankfully no one in my family, or closest friends were hurt.

I always thought that an act of terrorism here would be the equivalent of a nuclear blast, perhaps a bomb in a resort full to capacity. Actually after I thought that, I reasoned that Las Vegas would be a prime spot for international terrorists to meet at and possibly plan their attacks on the rest of the country.

But as it turned out, our night of terror consisted of a local man, with plans of mass destruction.

Last night also reminded me of one thing: Many Christians, including the traveling evangelists, label Las Vegas as Sin City, Sodom and Gomorrah. While tent revivals go on in other parts of the country, Las Vegas is shunned because of it’s affiliation with a lot of sin: gambling, prostitution, drugs…

If there was ever a town who needed an evangelistic movement, it would be Las Vegas, Nevada!

Yet God sent two angels to save one lone man and his family, because the man found favor in God’s eyes. That tells me something: God will allow evil to exist for a while, but there are enough Godly men and women, children too, in Las Vegas so that God won’t be lead to destroy this city. If this city is destroyed, it will be only by way of man’s hand, not God’s hands!

Sadly, the old saying “What happens in Vegas Stays in Vegas” is altogether true. Except for last night. Perhaps last night was an open door for evangelists to travel to a city that needs it the most.

Yes, it rained fire down on Las Vegas last night. Lives were lost, and people were seriously wounded. But Las Vegas still stands!

So God is still not done with Las Vegas, but God has definitely started that’s for sure!

 

Annual Notice of Changes

I don’t sleep the normal hours that everyone does. I guess my internal clock is set differently. I suppose you could call me a night owl. 

Last night, or early this morning I had an interesting dream where I am on this incredible cross country journey that involves a greyhound bus, biplane and cars. Now normally I actually hate traveling on either buses or planes…the constriction in movement for all those hours, and sitting so close to a total stranger makes me feel really uncomfortable.

Anyways in the dream I was performing a lot of action stunts…envision maybe Jackie Chan or some other action actor hopping from car to bus, to plance, etc. The journey’s end target destination is Florida. If only for the reasoning because Jacksonville’s airport is located near my Christian sister, whom I haven’t seen in years. 

Along the way I somehow lose my cel phone which has my ticket and everything else, but everyone I meet along the way either help me or give me hope etc…
 
I wake up and I am just lying in bed thinking about the dream then I start thinking about my sister. I start to pray like I’ve never prayed before and I am asking God, begging Him to set the captives free. Not just her, but every man, woman and child that is in an abusive situation.
 
Through my tears I asked God “When Oh Lord! When will you move your mighty hands to move for Your Children? And against the wicked?”. And as I look up I see this sign:


We are hoping and praying for some mighty changes to come forth. 

Please do me a favor, and pray for her. She’s in a terrible situation. And also keep in prayer other women, children, and yes even men that are in the same situation. Spousal/Relationship abuse no matter if it’s physical or mental is not something that’s easy to live with.

 
I’m reminded of Exodus 9:1 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Go to Pharaoh and say to him, ‘This is what the LORD, the God of the Hebrews, says: “Let my people go, so that they may worship me.”
