"I'm a Servant of the Lord!"

I use this phrase: "I'm a Servant of the Lord!" as a description of being a Deacon from the Greek origin of the word and as a quote from Robert Sheffey in the Bob Jones University Movie bearing his name: Sheffey. You can Google and find the dvd available on line and even a link to a trailer on one website that offers it for sale. I'll talk more about this movie on my blog: Reviews at the following link:

Thanksgiving - What are you thankful for or Who are you thankful to?

In this season of Thanksgiving, when even the secular schools turn their thoughts to thankfulness due to our historical forefathers' pause to be thankful for their blessings; to join together and give thanks for the harvest, the horn of plenty, life, health and freedom. Its in this time we can get all caught up in a good thing: giving thanks for all we have been given. So caught up, in fact, that we let it interfere with the best thing: remembering who to be thankful to! Somehow we look around at all we have been given, and we can piously be focusing on things, possessions, and even people (our family) in terms of what we have. Not that we should over spiritualize everything such that we forget to thank those people in our lives for their part. But we need to be first and foremost thankful to the giver of all good things: God! And we need to use this time to correct our focus: from temporal things, to the eternal beings. We need to remember as we offer thoughts and prayers of thanksgiving, to verbalize not only that which we are thankful for, but who we are thankful to! Thanks for listening. And thank you Lord, for life, breath, and health.

A Diamond in the Rough

A Diamond in the Rough
By Tim Rohm

Feeling down and dirty surrounded by muck?
Been feeling confined, forever stuck in a rut?

Is pressure being applied from all directions?
Squeezing you and your imperfections

A lump of coal felt that way for years,
Just before it all became clear!

Many times it thought of giving up.
As it slowly became a diamond in the rough.

Just when it thought no one cared a lick
It felt the ping of the miner’s pick.

From the long years in the cold dark night
To the bright heat of the jeweler’s light.

Sharp pains of a chisel splitting its side.
What would that do, but prepare it to reside-

In the setting of the ring for a blushing bride!
Who would forever display it with pride!

So next time you’re feeling like a mess,
Consider this: you’re a work in progress!

And when you’re feeling such awesome pressure
Think about how God made this treasure!

If God had such plans for a lump of Coal
What has He planned for your next role?

Jeremiah 29:11
For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD,
"plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future.

Experiencing God: Biblical Scholarship and God's Will

Check out this article at Stand to Reason Website.

This article takes issue with Henry Blackaby's view in "Experiencing God" of how God reveals and communicates with His people. Koukl's arguments seem valid, as does his approach to getting at the true meaning of scripture; but does this limit us to only knowing God's general will through His General revelation, specifically the Bible. Don't we live expectingly seeking, in hope of knowing and doing God's specific will for our life.
Check out this article and give me your feedback.

New Year, New Starts

Well, it's a new year, and time for some new starts. Last year had to be my roughest year, and I know God gets the credit for getting me through it. I am very thankful to Him, and Church, family and friends that helped me not only survive 2006, but gain new perspective and direction. We took a nice trip to Hilton Head Island in January to clear the air from a rough holiday season without my wife Sondra. It seems at every turn I am still thinking of how she would enjoy being with us, and seeing Lily as she grows and experiences this wonderful world we live in. But I am also reminded of the place she now calls home, and how marvelous it must be. I can only imagine, and I know it can't compare.
We all had a great time, and I feel like I can start 2007 with fresh vision and purpose. Please keep praying for all of us, and look on expecting, for I believe God, and He is capable of great and mighty things. Thank you for all your prayers and words of encouragement.
