What I Got for Christmas This Year

Hey everybody.I received an unexpected gift for Christmas this year.Someone tonight at church tonight came up to me and told me something on my blog had ministered to them.I cant tell you how much that meant to me.My whole point of doing this in the first place was so you could get to know me a little better but more importantly to reach out and touch someone's heart or encourage them.To know that has happened just makes me feel so honored.I love you my church family.Talk to you later.

The true meaning of Christmas

This time of year its real easy to forget what Christmas is all about.To me what we saw Wednesday night is what Christmas is about.People willing to lay down pretenses and come together as a family and to invite others to join that family.Children with wide eyed wonderment and joy in their hearts.But most of all I do believe the one whose birthday we were celebrating was right there in our midst and I cant begin tell you how much that means to me.I love all of you and wish you the happiest and most joyful Christmas.

Word of God Speak

It just amazes me continually how God knows the word His people needs to hear and that our pastor is sensitive enough to the Spirit to hear it.I know that my best works are but filthy rags except for the grace shown to us through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.I struggle, I fall, but I get back up again.I ask the Lord to help me to die to myself daily so that He might live in me even more.To whomever reads this I want you to know I love you and will do anything I can to help you carry your burden.I need your help too.Thank you for being my family.

The not so perfect me

Guess what?I'm not perfect.I know real big suprise huh!I get stressed like others do.Get frustrated like others do.Say and do and think things I shouldnt sometimes.Its really hard on me sometimes because I so want to be perfect for Him.Whats even more difficult is when others think they know what I struggle with but couldnt be further off base.My prayer for you is that God gives you peace in your struggle and strength to be the best you that you can be for Him.

Just me thinking out loud

Holy is Your name,
Peace is ours to gain,
When we seek your voice again,

Worthy is the Lamb,
Help my weak heart stand,

Holy and worthy is the Lamb,
Holy and worthy is the Lamb.

A Shining Example

This is my friend Copeland.He is a shining example of why I feel there is hope for the youth of today.He came over to talk to me while I was taking pictures for Trunk or Treat at our church Wednesday night.I cant begin to tell you how kind,respectful,and well spoken he was.I believe it is because it comes from a home and a family where he sees that on a daily basis.Oh I'm sure he has moment just like all kids do but it just amazed me how mature Copeland is.In fact Ive yet to meet one of the youth in our church who has not been respectful to me or others.We are truly blessed.Next time you hear about a kid getting in trouble on the news remember my friend Copeland.Good kids do still exist!

You Cant Steal My Joy

It seems from the moment I got up today you know who was trying to steal my joy.First of all my little one just would not get out of the bed so I could get to work on time.Im sure no one could sympathize with me on that one.Yeah right.Secondly when I got to work I was about to tell a co-worker about the exciting news about the Cinema's when I got called into a meeting with a few other co-workers to tell us we arent making enough sales.Im by nature a serious person so its easy for me to get down if I get stressed or if I feel Ive fallen short of what God wants me to be.Im trying to put into operation what Pastor David spoke about yesterday.The world is looking to see if I crumble or if I trust in God.I choose to trust in God.So Satan you can't steal my joy!

Giving Thanks

I just got up this morning and something just told me to start giving thanks so here goes.I thank God for my wife and little girl.I thank God for all my friends.I thank God for our families.I thank God for my health and the health of those I love.I thank God for my finances.I thank God for my Pastor;Pastor David Boggs; who has a powerful anointing and a sincere heart for those who are lost.I thank God for my music pastors; Pastors Curtis and Charmaine Bridgeman;who desire only to take us through true praise and worship into a place where God can enter in and where His people can know that they are in His presence.I thank God for our Pastoral Care team who are constantly willing to serve.I thank God for our youth department and those who lead it.I thank God for all those who work behind the scenes but never get mentioned.I thank God for our new building that He had for us even before we even knew it and for all those who will come because of what He has entrusted us with.But most of all I thank God for His son;Jesus Christ;who came to save me,to love me,to forgive me,to heal me,to make me one with Him again.

I Will Praise You In The Storm

My wife took this picture when our church went to Lexington in August.It almost looked like to us that lightning had struck the cross and lit it up.Made me realize that no matter what storm I'm in in life that God has the power to take me through the storm.Here comes the healing rain........Thank you Jesus for loving me that much

It Only Takes a Spark To Get A Fire Growing

I had stated in my previous post about Campmeeting that I prayed we would keep the the passion for for the lost,keep the passion for giving God our highest praise.After this Sunday I think it's safe to say that prayer has been answered.All praise be to God!!!

A Word in Due Season

Whew!!!Campmeeting was phenomenal.I can tell you how much it warmed my heart to see everyone on fire for the Lord.I just pray that we can continue the passion that it brought out in us.Passion for the lost,passion for giving God our highest praise.The word given by Bishop Johnny confirmed some things I had been feeling in my spirit.I pray it stays planted in our hearts.Bye for now

Im Trying

Somebody told me tonight I look so serious all the time.I know that I do.I really do have a fun side to me.I'm trying.

Saturday, September 22, 2007


Looking forward to Campmeeting.Even if just one new person comes to Jesus it's worth it.My prayer is that we get out of the way and let God be God.I know I have trouble with this sometimes myself.Keep wanting to take my problems back by worrying all the time.He knows what i need and will take care of it for me if I just let Him.Nuff said!!!

Top Ten Reasons Why I Decided to Start Blogging

10.Thought someone said clogging and hey I'm born and raised in Kentucky ya know.YEE HA!
9.I trip over my over my word so much when i talk you'd think I was Jerry Lewis so this is easier.
8.Was tired of that Harry Potter dude getting all the publicity!
7.Other possible hobbies such as watching paint dry and chewing bubble gum were already taken
6.Heard that a new reality series "The World's Best Blogger"was auditioning for talent.
5.Blogging is the next best thing to being there
4.Told Paris I wouldnt stop being her pen pal once she got out of the pokey
3.I must have something useful to say.NO REALLY!
2.The voices inside my head told me too.They also told me that midnight runs to Taco Bell were okay too so dont know if I should listen to them.............
1.And the number one reason I started blogging is cool people like Pastor David and Clay Noe do it!

3 Common Misconceptions About Me

1.I am always depressed.

I am by nature a serious person.My mother commited suicide when I was 6 years old so I had to grow up fast.I do have joy in my heart its just harder for me to show.Im working on it!

2.Just because I dont talk much I dont have much to say.

Everything I've read in the Bible says to quick to listen and slow to speak.I usually dont insert myself into conversations but if you want my opinion ask and I will give to you

3.I sing for any other reason than to touch people's hearts and give glory to God

My only desire when I sing is to bring a person to a vulnerable place where God can speak to their heart.I also want to make my song as beautiful as I possibly can for Him.He gave me the gift so I feel it would be wrong not to give back to Him.

A Truly Annointed Man

I am truly blessed to attend a church with an on fire annointed pastor.Just when I think my pastor could not be anymore on fire for winning the lost and preaching the gospel he just kicks it up another notch.The thing I most appreciate about my pastor is that he is just a for real person.I am a very easygoing person but if I do have one pet peeve it is people who put up a front or think they are better than others.I do realize some people put up fronts in order to avoid being hurt but if I dont know the real you how can I reach out to you.I want to be your friend.Anyways I just hope I can if even in the smallest way be a part of helping my pastor reach the vision he has for our church.He is truly a visionary.
