Waiting For A Breakthrough – Poem

Who am I

A question we all ask but why

Looking for the meaning of life

Yet this life cuts like a knife

A wound deep beneath the skin

Almost like it was built-in

Why do I have this pain

Building up like a bad sprain

Everyone offers help to lift you up

But that is only a momentary pickup

So today who has reached out

Who has helped me with this doubt

I implore you to never give up

Stop trying to cover-up

All the pain that holds you down

All the pain that causes you to frown

All the pain that makes you feel let down

All the pain that makes you want to breakdown

There has to be more

Than what you can buy in the store

I want you to keep singing

Your voice always in my ear bringing

My spirit up

Even when I have a buildup

Of pain

All caught in my brain

But the easy answer

Is there is no cure for cancer

Who dealt me these cards

I have always been on guard

Trying to protect the ones I love

Keep them close to me like a glove

But no matter how hard I try

The end continues to draw nigh

I want to enjoy today

Please don’t push me away

I know you are scared

But that is why Jesus shared

His life on the cross

To remind satan that He was the boss

Today I plead with you

To let go of everything that is making you blue

It is time to restore all that is true

God’s word kicks evil like Kung Fu

I can’t pull you through

But if you have faith Jesus will come through

Can I ask you a question

Will you stop all the aggression

Will you begin with confession

This is just my suggestion

Faith removes the depression

And leaves a positive impression

We are made in the image of God

Except Adam & Eve allowed us to become flawed

Nonetheless by the grace of God

We can now applaud

For God has given us a way

So we will no longer betray

The Son of Man

This has been God’s plan

To sacrifice His only Son

He said “it is finished” & then it was done

God help me remain strong

All the day long

Even when life happens

Help me to continue laughing

I give my life to You

I am waiting for a breakthrough

We Didn’t Plan This – Poem

How can you understand

Cancer was never planned

How did this happen

Where is your compassion

People complaining about nothing

Always talking about something

Yet this pain is not leaving

Here I am grieving

The world constantly deceiving

Yet the sheep are still unbelieving

How can I move forward

The questions sound like a broken recorder

How is she doing

Questions sound like they are interviewing

We are waiting on a miracle

Something that is biblical

Not searching for “a” healer

Yet constantly checking for a fever

Looking for “The Healer”

To bind up the cancer like a concealer

Not just hide it

But transform it

Remove the cells that are attacking

While the doctors are tracking

So they can see

That God can do anything

Meanwhile I get inspired

Even when I am tired

God keeps speaking to my mind

Wanting me to reach out to the blind

I am just a man looking to share God’s plan

I reached out to this particular man

Where is the man that wanted to be

More than what the world said he could achieve

A man chasing after God

Instead of trying to avoid the rod

Common man don’t give me this or that

It is time to get back on track

What more are you waiting for

God is standing, knocking, on your front door❗️🚪

I can’t save you

But I can remind you

Jesus died to save you

He won’t run from you

No matter how long it takes

He waits patiently even when we try to be fake

Our feelings may be hurt

Put back on your shirt

Nobody wants to see that

It is time to fall flat

On our faces

And get back in God’s good graces. 🙏

I praise God for my pain

Because He allows me to see through the rain

It is just a storm

The prayers continue to transform

All my pain into a testimony

No I am not trying to be phony

My story is not over

It is hard to find like a 4 leaf clover

Buried among many chapters

I am praying for the rapture

Jesus I don’t know how much more I can take

Take a hold of my soul and shake

Cause me to remain strong

Continue to show me where I belong

Your power is stronger

And keeps me fighting longer

Hold me up

Fill my cup

Cause me to overflow

Pour out so others may grow

Closer to You Lord

It is You alone that I adore❗️

Now That Is Something I Can Applaud❗️ – Poem

Don’t be so raw that you’re hard

Words so sharp they cut like a chard

We need people that speak truth

Bring back that old phone booth

Super Man lost his cover

It’s time for us to rediscover

Jesus died for your heart

He took the shot like a fiery dart

Satan tried Him

God saved Him

Rose again like a boss

But you too busy shopping at Ross

Looking for a bargain

Meanwhile Jesus rose again

He wants to save you

Ring that up, that is true

Stop trying to blow money on worldly things

Salvation is better than a diamond ring

No matter how many times

I keep spitting the same rhyme

It falls on death ears

Too busy drinking them beers

Does the truth hurt

You to busy trying to flirt

Looking for love in all the wrong places

But even CSI can’t find any traces

Love is not found just anywhere

Love is it found at the fair

Love is not found in any pair

Jesus died to remove the despair

Jesus is love

He came from above

To take it all on the cross

To give you access to come across

There is only one way

Don’t let anyone lead you astray

Jesus is the only

Stop falling for the phony

The one true God

Now that is something I can applaud❗️

Do You Remember When…


Do you remember the first time you received bad news? Last week my wife was in the hospital with what everyone thought was pneumonia. The doctor did a bronchoscopy and didn’t find any tumors so we thought we were in the clear. The biopsy takes a couple of days to come back. I was the first one to get the phone call and the doctor said, “it is cancer.” I was immediately in shock, I didn’t know how to respond, well how could I other then scream internally and question God why why why?

Kristeen’s mom died from lung cancer that metastasized to her brain about 3.5 years ago, but her mom smoked and was much older. I couldn’t comprehend how this could be happening to such a young woman. My wife has been such a giving person of herself and her time to so many people. I immediately thought God I am not ready to give my wife to you, I need her here, my kids need her here.

Yesterday we met with the oncologist and he gave us what the treatment options are. Of course I wasn’t thrilled with our options or the fact that this cancer is not cureable according to modern day medicine, but I still hold on to the fact that I serve a miracle working God and just because the doctors say there is no way doesn’t mean that God can’t do it. My dad was told he would never walk again and he has been walking for many years still.

The prognosis was very scary, I won’t lie about that, but I had to ask what the doctors thought about how much more time I would have with my wife. Some of you may know and understand that Kristeen is at stage 4 and the cancer has spread from her lungs, to her bones, and even to her brain. I try not to focus on the time we have left, but instead leave time in God’s hand while I take in every moment I have left with my bride. I love my wife and wouldn’t trade her for anything in the world.

I will leave everyone with this, don’t take anything for granted and be thankful for everything that God has blessed you with because in an instant everything can change.

Love Is Tricky – Poem


Love isn’t just an emotion

Or even a magic potion

God designed it with a purpose

He provides a surplus

When you are all alone

You can feel Him in your bones

Your eyes can not see

But in the Trinity there is three

Why do we not trust

Broken down with rust

Bent out of shape

Pieced together with tape

Lord we hurt so much

We long for Your touch

Shine your light upon us

Help me not to cuss

So many thoughts trapped inside

How come I can’t find a bride

I want to feel complete

I want someone sweet

To have and to hold

Before I get too old

Show me your plan

Teach me to be a fisherman

Not just for someone for me

But also to help others see

That Your plan is better

For You I write this letter

Help me to love

Help me to find truelove

I am willing to trust my life to You

Make my dark skies turn blue

With Christ I can overcome

Help me to become

The person you made me to be

Together let’s agree

That alone I will fail

But with You I can sail

No longer left all alone

Because you have shown

Me how to love and expect nothing

Your love is very touching

With You I am made whole

I have finally found my self-control

Bring me someone special

I promise to be careful

Love them like You have loved me

Together we will cross the sea

Whatever it takes

No matter how high the stakes

We will give you the glory

And that is my story…

What Does Your Fruit Look Like? – Sermon Notes

 

Last time I had the opportunity to preach there was a hurricane on its way to Jacksonville.  Last week I was supposed to share this sermon and an even bigger hurricane decided to come start for us.  Coincidence?  I think not, God always has a plan for everything that is happening in our lives.  I hope that everyone finally has power again and didn’t suffer any major damage.  I would love to hear your stories after service.

 

Please bow your heads and close your eyes.  Lord we come before you to open our hearts to Your word.  Lord as this storm has passed we thank you for protecting us and keeping us safe.  We pray for those that don’t have shelter and are trying to survive on the streets of Jacksonville.  Jesus we need more of You and less of us.  Please be with us today as we learn more about You and Your ways, in Jesus name, Amen.

 

Have you ever had a message so powerful that you didn’t know how to deliver it?  The message that God has placed on my heart for today is that type of message.  But before we jump into that, let me tell you a short story about another man that many of you should already know.  That man is Paul Revere, he too had a message of great importance that needed to be said.

 

In 1775 – On the night of April 18th and 19th, Paul makes his famous Midnight Ride to Lexington to warn Samuel Adams and John Hancock that the British are marching to arrest them. Along with William Dawes and other riders, he warns the countryside of the British march. He witnesses the “shot heard ’round the world” as fighting breaks out in Lexington.  Some say that Paul was shouting “the British are coming”, but others think he was shouting “the Red Coats” are coming.  Either way, he had the inside information that could save thousands of lives.

 

Now, can you think of anyone else who has such a powerful message that needs to be told to everyone in this world?

 

That person quite simply is YOU!

 

Mark 16:15 And he said to them, “Go into all the world and proclaim the gospel to the whole creation.

 

Who is the whole creation?  Does that mean go home and tell your dog?  Absolutely not, but that does mean tell your friends, tell your neighbors, even tell random people that you don’t know but God has placed in your path.

 

Matthew 28:19 Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit,

 

When I was originally writing this message I had tweeted this just the day before, “Imagine if everyone gave excuses about why they couldn’t spread the gospel and expected someone else to do it?  Sow seeds, don’t wait for others.”

 

1.     Definition of seed – a flowering plant’s unit of reproduction, capable of developing into another such plant.

 

What is the purpose of a farmer? The Business Dictionary tells us that a farmer is an individual whose primary job function involves livestock and/or agriculture. A farmer takes all the necessary steps to ensure proper nourishment of the items that he raises and then sells the items to purchasers.

If nobody wants to be the farmer then who will grow the food?  How will we eat?  How will we stay alive?  Can you imagine a world where you had to grow and plant your own food?  Now that would be a tough place to live.

Genesis 1:29 And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food.”

So with God doing this He knew we had to eat.
I love food,
I love to eat food,
I love to cook food,
I love to look at food.
Right now I wish there were cupcakes on my table instead of apples.

Lord, thank you for blessing us with food to feed and nourish our bodies.
Let me take this tangent now, if you guys don’t know how to cook then you need to start learning.  One day you will be living on your own and if you don’t learn today then you won’t know how to cook for yourself when the time comes.

Apple Demo

1 Corinthians 15:36-38 You foolish person! What you sow does not come to life unless it dies. And what you sow is not the body that is to be, but a bare kernel, perhaps of wheat or of some other grain. But God gives it a body as he has chosen, and to each kind of seed its own body.

I want to zoom in on a key phrase from this Bible verse.  “What you sow does not come to life unless it dies.”  That apple seed has to die in its current shape and form in order for the roots to be released and the plant to emerge from the soil.

Can anyone think of another Bible verse where you have to die before the new can come?
2 Corinthians 5:17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come.

Let me leave you with this final thought.  Many will tell you that we should be producing fruit.  What happens when there is no more fruit?

If there is NO fruit then there can be NO seed.

If there is NO fruit then there can be NO seed.

Bow your heads and close your eyes.  Is there anyone in this room who is struggling to see fruit in their life please raise your hands?  Lord, right now I pray for these young people.  I know You want to do so much more with their lives and are only waiting for them to submit their lives to You.  I pray right now Lord that you work on their hearts, soften their hearts to receive Your love and guidance on how to live their own lives according to Your word.  Lord use each of them to be a beacon of light for the lost.  Help them to become great farmers that are not afraid to sow seed into the land because they know that You alone Lord have the power to decide which seeds die and which seeds grow.  Be with us each day as it comes, in the name of Jesus we pray, amen.

The Savior of the World is Coming – Poem

We know

But do the lost know

If God really cared

Would you be spared?

How would you know?

Which way you should go?

Jesus died for YOU bro

Washed you white as snow

What does that really mean?

How can you believe if you have never seen?

By faith my son

Put down that gun

Your problems can be overcome

Because sin has been undone

Jesus is the key

To set you free

But freedom has a price

Don’t let that melt like ice

Hold onto that promise

Don’t let anyone dismiss

The word of God has power

Partake of it, His word is never sour

Now is the time to invite

Together we will excite

Ignite the lost like a forest fire

Together we will inspire

The Savior of the world is coming

I can hear the drummer drumming

Come now Lord

Deliver us from the sword

Save us from this place

Let us not be a disgrace

I pray for Your love

To shower us from above

Rain down like a monsoon

Fill me like a balloon

Holy Spirit pour out

Remove any & ALL doubt.

Who You Are – Sermon Notes

Hello and welcome back to Faith Matters.  Time continues to fly by, tomorrow is the big day that I get to pick up the CD’s for my wife’s new album.  This weekend she will be performing at the fair in Charleston so she has been in preparation mode all week.  God is good and if you haven’t felt that way lately please stop and ask yourself if you are doing everything within your power to give God your best.

Let’s go ahead and open up in prayer.  Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for this blessed day.  I am excited because I have been filled up with the Holy Spirit.  Lord let my words mean something to the hearts of those who are listening.  Lord let me be that light that draws them unto You.  In Your name I pray, Amen.

Who are you?  No no no, who are you really?  You see who we think we are isn’t always how we are living our life.  I met someone tonight, he came out to our youth group, he was quiet, just sat in the chair and watched everyone walking by.  He was early, the service hasn’t started yet, but my eyes were drawn to him.  Sure I knew this was his first time but more importantly I could tell that he felt uncomfortable and probably didn’t know anyone.

He looked over at me and decided to stand up and walk towards me.  We exchanged a couple of words, I asked him what school he went to.  He asked me how old I was and it made me laugh.  I told him if I looked young enough for him to ask me that then I am doing a good job.  I gave him my age and I am sure he was shocked.  I told him don’t worry the service will get started in about 7 more minutes.

The service for the youth kicked off with a bang like it always does, people were singing and worshipping The Lord.  I witnessed him get up from his chair and walk to the front and raise up his hands.  Let me tell you this, when God is moving there is NOTHING that can stand in His way.  Pastor Dan gave his sermon tonight and talked about our dreams and are we trying to live out our dreams or receive the dreams that God wants to do in and through us.  Pastor Dan asked if anyone in the audience didn’t know Jesus as their Lord and Savior.  This young man raised his hand along with three other teens and invited Jesus into his life.Top of Form

1 John 1:9  If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

I watched him yet again rise up from his seat and go to the front to lift his hands and singing praises to The Lord.  This melted my heart; this is what it is all about.  The person that has never heard about Jesus coming into a building we call Church and finding Jesus who changes his life from the inside.

Luke 15:3-7 So he told them this parable: “What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it? And when he has found it, he lays it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he comes home, he calls together his friends and his neighbors, saying to them, ‘Rejoice with me, for I have found my sheep that was lost.’ Just so, I tell you, there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.

I say all of this to quite simple say that Jesus loves each and every one of us.  There is not one lost sheep that He wouldn’t stop what He is doing to go search for.  Jesus is searching for you regardless if you want to believe it or not.  Your heart is longing for the love of Christ but your mind keeps trying to push Jesus away.  The flesh doesn’t want to be under control, it wants to be wild and satisfy all of its desires.  Don’t let any sin keep you from the glory of God.

Let’s close out in prayer.  Lord I thank you for the ability to be a part of such a beautiful sight of sinning a lost person find his way back to you.  Lord let us never take the glory but instead always give it back to You.  For it is because of You that this young man came in tonight in search of something more.  Thank you for blessing us to reach out and be the light to the lost.  Continue to use us to reach many more, in Your name I pray, Amen.

I want to thank you for taking the time to listen today.  If you would like to reach out to me you can do so on Twitter @KNGMusic or via our website http://www.KNGMusicMinistry.com We would love to hear from you.  It is because of your constant feedback and love that helps keep us motivated and moving forward with our ministry.  Let not one soul be lost because we didn’t feel like it or we didn’t have time.  Have a blessed day!

What Is Good Enough? – Sermon Notes

Glad to have you join us again for Faith Matters.  Another week has passed us by and we are almost half way through the year 2015.  This past week our youth group got together and did what is called a color clash.  I didn’t know what it was until they showed me but pretty much there are several different colors of paint, each one in their own 5 gallon bucket spread out, and the team that keeps their captain with the least amount of paint on them wins.  Does that sound interesting?  Let me tell you what, so glad I was the photographer for the event and not covered in paint but they had a blast.  I have a ton of pictures to prove it.  The best part was after the paint war Pastor Dan did a short sermon and 10 teenagers gave their lives to Christ.  Now that is what it is all about.

Before we go any further let us open up with prayer.  God you have been so good, You have provided for the things we need, You have closed the doors to protect us from disasters, and You have opened new doors to test our faith further.  God I am constantly in a state of awe at how you work.  I pray that You use me and the words that I speak to touch the hearts of those that are listening.  I am believing that the words spoken today are not just words, but a call to those that have questions, an answer to those that need to hear your words.  Lord, please use me, speak through me, and may you receive all the glory.  In your name we pray, Amen.

Recently for those of you that follow me on Twitter, you have had the chance of catching me broadcasting live video.  I sent one of those videos to my sister, she watched it and she said and I quote “pretty awesome.”  Now coming from little sister I was excited to hear that I did something that impressed her.  I wasn’t quite prepared for the conversation that followed.  Now before I quote what she sent me, let me give you some background on the video she saw so that it all makes sense.  I was talking about how we see ourselves versus how God see’s us and why we don’t go up to for the altar call.  Pretty much we compare ourselves to those around us and we feel we are better half than the guy next to us so no need to step forward.  Now if you listened to last week I went into a deeper discussion on how we are not supposed to compare ourselves to other Christians but to Christ and try to be more like Christ.  I will leave my summary there so that I can get into her questions, but if you missed last week please go back and listen to it so that you can listen to some of the treasures that I found in the word of God.

Back to my sister’s conversation and yes I did get permission to share this with everyone:

“So I don’t go for several of the reasons you mentioned: 1)  My life is going pretty well so I don’t have anything that would need prayer 2)  I have something that would need prayer but I’m too afraid of openly admitting that 3)  I think my relationship with God is just fine.  No need to work on that.  – Not the best attitude since we should always be working on ourselves.  Who was the prophet / disciple who continuously sought God despite being totally awesome?  There was someone I’m thinking of in particular.  Anyways, and, the biggest one 4)  FEAR.  My life is going well.  I’m doing middle of the road.  I long for that amazing love and relationship with God but I’m too afraid of what I’ll have to give up – my relationships, my “normal” habits that everyone does – what will I have to give up since I’m not a porn  addicted alcoholic?  Since I’m a normal person what will I have to give up?  And once I’m there, won’t I just be a big target for the devil?  What if I have to do 7 years of famine before the 7 years of plenty?  Can I make it 7 years?  Is it worth rocking the boat?  There really are so few people who walk hand in hand with God that you see the light in them.  Most of us will never get there.  So isn’t being a good person enough?”

That was a lot to cover all at once so I am going to break it down piece by piece because I know that my sister is not the only person that has these types of questions.  I am sure that we have all felt the same way at some point in our walk with God.

Let us start back at her first point.  My life is going well so why should I go up to the altar?  This really depends on your own personal definition of “well”.  Is your life just “well” or could it be swell or maybe even awesome.  Having been in a relationship that was spiritually dead and going through the motions before I met my wife I didn’t really know that my own life of “well” could be much better.  Sometimes we get to a point in life that we think oh well that is it, I am married, we have several kids, and our marriage is just blah, nothing else for us but to get old and gray.  No, no, no, God wants so much more for you, BUT you have to deny your flesh, you have to be ready to be changed from the inside, it all starts with your own heart.  Once God changes your heart, then He can begin to work on the heart of your spouse.  The great I AM is not okay with status quo.  Let me throw a scripture at you:

Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,

If you are living a life and your life does not capture what is mentioned in Galatians 5:22 then we have some work to do.  Don’t go out and try to change your spouse tomorrow, oh no, let God do that.  First we need to begin in our own lives.  A journey always begins with the first step; let’s make that step together to be closer to The Lord today.

Looking at her second point, I have something that I need prayer for but I am too afraid of openly admitting it.  Isn’t that every single Christian?  I am sure that if I had you write down the things you need prayer for on a piece of paper, you could easily come up with at least 10 different things.  But if I do the same exercise and ask you to come forward and let me pray for you if you need prayer, you would stay in your seat.

Prayer is such a powerful tool but instead of us using it to call upon The Lord, we use it like a life preserver when we are drowning in our storms.  God doesn’t say WAIT until you need my help and then call upon my name.  God says cry out to me, my children, I am The Lord Your God, I am Your Provider, I AM the Way, the Truth, and the Life.  I will sustain you, I will restore you.

1 Thessalonians 5:17 Pray without ceasing,

Romans 8:26 Likewise the Spirit helps us in our weakness. For we do not know what to pray for as we ought, but the Spirit himself intercedes for us with groanings too deep for words.

Luke 11:9 And I tell you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Matthew 6:6 But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret. And your Father who sees in secret will reward you.

The problem today is that we don’t take the time to pray like we should.  We have all the excuses in the world why we don’t have time for God yet we spend hours upon hours wasting time watching TV, playing games online, surfing the internet, you name it, we can create things to waste our time so that we don’t have to give God any of our time.

Point number 3 was “I think my relationship with God is just fine”.  This particular statement is not one that I or any man can determine.  Your relationship with God is between you and God.  BUT and I do mean this is a big BUT…

Is fine good enough for you?  Are you okay with just knowing about God, that Jesus died on the cross for you and being saved?  Are your friends not worthy enough for you to share Jesus with them?  Are we so selfish that we don’t think about the millions of other people who don’t know Jesus Christ as their personal Lord & Savior?  I was there; I was completely content with my relationship with God.  I had no problem just being a Sunday Christian.

You know what happened?

God set me on fire for the lost, God put a burning desire in my heart to be used by Him, God showed me the pain that others are experiencing that don’t know Him.  God brought tears to my eyes every time I looked at others that were broken.
I prayed such a simple prayer and yet my life changed.  I opened up my heart to The Lord and He chose me, He took me in, He showed me how to make a difference in the lives of others.
I prayed, “Lord, I want to be used by you, I want to know you, I am willing to give up everything I have right now to follow you.  Please show me more, Lord don’t let anything in my life get in the way of Your purpose.  If I need to be sent overseas to reach more people I am willing.  Lord, I give you my heart, use me.”

After that prayer my human natural eyes began to see things differently.  I lost a lot of what this world had given me, but it was to remove the things that were holding me back.  If that is you, if you want to truly know God more, YOU have to be willing to stop accepting this world as your home and cry out to God for more.

To speak to her final point, FEAR.  I don’t want to give up what everyone else has.  Won’t I become a target for the devil?
Satan wants you to fear, he wants you to doubt your ability, he wants you to remain shy and not involved because the only way you win a war is to divide and conquer.  If he can keep you away from other Christians, if he can keep you out of Church, if he can convince you that your life is “good enough” that you don’t need Church then he has already won.
If you haven’t seen the movie God’s Not Dead then please do so.  I am going to paraphrase a pivotal scene from that movie.  Right now if you are okay with life as it is then you have willingly walked into a jail cell.  Picture yourself right now on a tour at Alcatraz.  The jail cell door is open; you are living the life that you want to live.  The devil is not going to attack you because he already has you where he wants you.  At some point, the door will instantly slam shut and there will be no escape.  Why would anyone attack if they already secretly have you trapped?

Let me key in on this phrase that I have heard countless times, “isn’t being a good person good enough?”  I want you to ask yourself, is a good person all you want to be?  Are you not starving to be fed the bread of life?  Do you want to be content and full because the word of God has fulfilled your life?  A good person is great; you can live your life, but then what?  What is the real point of life?  Are we just here taking up space until we die?  I think not, God created us with a purpose, to be pleasing unto Him.  When we realize that our life on this earth is temporary but living at the right hand of the Father is eternal, then your perspective of how you live your life and just being a good person begins to change.

Lord I thank you for allowing me to speak these words today.  I know as Christians we all have questions, we all have doubts, but Lord we know that in Christ Jesus we have been found, we have been made whole, we are made new.  Lord I pray for those out there living their lives to be “good enough” will catch the Holy Ghost fire and have that burning desire to seek Your face.  God I thank you for lifting me out of my slumber and opening my eyes.  Every day I have an unspeakable Joy and I want to share that with everyone else that I know.  Lord I pray that the burning desire I have becomes contagious and spreads to everyone that listens to this message.  Let them know You more.  In Your name I pray, Amen.
