Family, beloved, brothers and sisters in Christ. There is nothing common about the Christian life. Quit trying to fit in when you have been set apart! Are you tired of walking, talking, acting, and living just like the rest of the world? Do you desire to experience God like never before? Do you wish to be used by God in this generation like the many giants of faith we read about did in theirs? Then Pray for the baptism of the holy ghost, and by faith recieve what the father freely gives. You will then in no way blend in with those who do not know God personally. On the contrary you will stand out, as a city on a hill, or as a blazing fire raging in the night. Stand up and stand out by the power of God for the glory of God. Give the people something to hope for, long for, aspire to in God by modeling what God has done, and is doing in and through you everyday. God is faithful, and able, but are you willing?

Acts 4:13 When they saw the courage of Peter and John and realized that they were unschooled, ordinary men, they were astonished and they took note that these men had been with Jesus.

There is nothing I desire more than to know God, and to be known by God. I long to be closer. So much so that even just a glimpse of God has already turned my world upside down forever. I've heard it said that the safest place on the planet is in a mother's womb. Once born, we can never again be as close to mom as we once were when inside the womb. So close that we were essentially one. Being "Born again" of the spirit is different, and kind of works in reverse. We start in the world, and once born spiritually we then begin to work our way back into relationship with God, growing closer and closer through the sanctification of His word. So close that we are essentially becoming one with Jesus Christ. Noah's Ark is a picture of Jesus Christ. Similar to the love, safety, nourishment, completeness, and peace of a healthy mother's womb, I long to remain in the "womb", or ark of Jesus Christ. In the bossom of God forever. 

Colossians 3:3 For you died, and your life is now hidden with Christ in God.


God is great and worthy to be praised. If you and I keep silent even the stones would cry out! Let's not let that happen. Praise The Lord! At home praise The Lord, at work praise The Lord, at school praise The Lord, on the street Praise The Lord, on the bus praise The Lord, in the subway praise The Lord, in the car praise The Lord. In the good times praise The Lord, in the bad times praise The Lord. When you're happy praise The Lord, when you're sad praise The Lord. When you win praise The Lord, when you lose praise The Lord. When you're energized praise The Lord, when you're exhausted praise The Lord. From the pulpit praise The Lord, from the pew praise The Lord. In the morning praise The Lord, in the noontime praise The Lord, in the evening praise The Lord, and at night praise The Lord. Let us never neglect to praise The Lord. 

Pslam 113:3 From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the LORD is to be praised.
