"Cries to God on My Behalf..."

I am always deeply touched when people pray for me. This past week a dear brother prayed specifically for me and let me know (by copying me in on email) about his cries to God on my behalf:

"Dear Father God, This morning the Holy Spirit brought to mind my pastor. He faces so many burdens that I know nothing about. He has such great responsibilities and weighty decisions. He has personal family to care for as well as church family to shepherd. I pray that as he comes to you today... and every day... that you will refresh his spirit, enlighten his mind, and strengthen his body. I pray that you will grant him wisdom, anointing, and openness to receive the message you want to deliver through him and to deliver that message when and to whom you want it delivered. I pray for protection and blessing for my pastor's entire family and all the leaders of the church. Please keep them safe from all harm and evil... and lead them on to accomplish your plan for their lives, the church's future, and the Great Commission. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen." -- A Loving Brother

Give away your life... In prayer for others.

"One of the Greatest Proofs.."

"One of the greatest proofs that you are drawing on the grace of God is that you can be humiliated without manifesting the slightest trace of anything but His grace in you." -- Oswald Chambers

Isaiah 61:1-3 "Beauty for Ashes..."

This link will lead you to a lovely passage from God's Holy Word. It is the passage Jesus read aloud in the synagogue at Nazareth. Yes, He proclaimed Truth from the Scroll of Isaiah to describe Himself. 

Now, simply click the link and profoundly saturate in Isaiah 61:1-3 from The Amplified Bible:

Don't Allow Sin to Reign

"If the believer holds fast what his/her participation with Christ's death signifies, he/she has the power to overcome sin. It is said 'sin is dead'; but he/himself or she/herself is dead to sin and alive to God, so sin cannot for a single moment, without his/her consent, have dominion over him/her. If he/she does sin, it is because he/she allows sin to reign, and he/she submits himself/herself to it."
-- Andrew Murray

Don't give away yourself... To sin.

"Difficult But Worth It"

"It has been said anything worth doing is difficult. Jesus never said it would be easy, but he did say it would be worth it. My encouragement to you is simply this: remain committed to the call God has placed in your heart, invest in others along the way, and be a voice that helps bring change when systems are broken."
(My encouraging, friend, Keith Wiseman)

Give away your life... To make the world different!

Journey With Jesus...

Psalm 23:3a -- "He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness..."

Better to journey with Jesus on the difficult, right paths that lead to Somewhere, than to travel on easy, wrong roads with satan that lead to no where.

Give away your life... To The Good Shepherd.
