Last Thoughts on Wind Storm 2008

A Letter To My Pastor

Dear Pastor David,

Just wanted to let you know it broke my heart last Sunday when everyone was sowing into yours and Pastor Christel's life and I had nothing to give because I had given the last I had to the single mom beside me.The more I thought about it though I realized you probably would have wanted it that way.You are one of the most unselfish people I have ever known.I have never seen anyone so tirelessly work to see that those who need and want Jesus have a place to come where they can find Him.I also appreciate the fact that you are real with us even when we might not want to hear it.You have sown into my life in too many ways to mention and I just want to say thank you and that I love you and your family so much.

Your Brother In Christ,
Tom

Remembering September 11th



Where was I on September 11th?I was working at dental insurance company and was on hold when I heard a news report because the office I called used a radio station for its hold music.As they were reporting about the first plane and not knowing what happened the second plane came in and we knew something was terribly wrong.When the person got back on the phone with me they had seen it happen on TV and at that point nothing else really mattered.I had a little transistor TV in my desk drawer and we watched as the towers crumbled.I also was working for UPS at the time and remember us being shut down for 2-3 days afterward.Its sad that sometimes it takes a catastrophe for us to realize what is really important.So please hug whomever you love tonight and let them know how much you love them.Thank you Lord for loving us.

Let the Rain Fall

I cant begin to describe what happened yesterday.During certain times it almost seemed like we had angels singing along with those of us there.I have prayed to have worship that caused us to have God to incline His ear to hear it and I truly felt like He was there yesterday.I pray that we hunger for that atmosphere more.

Please Dont Grow Weary

I have been getting the feeling recently that we have grown weary as a church waiting on our promise.My prayer is that we lean on God for our strength even more now than we have before because our promise is right there for the taking if we do not faint.God wants to use us be His hands and feet in the heart of this city and even beyond that.I know we have it in us.

I Thank God ........

I thank God you are my friends.I thank God for a church and a pastor who really want to make a difference for all those who are out there hurting and lost.I thank God for the awesome oppurtunity of being able to use the gift He has given me to touch other people's lives.I thank God He loves me even though He knows how imperfect I am.Thank you Lord

Total Surrender

Since Wednesday night I've been thinking how awesome it would be if we all could live in that place of total surrender we saw all the time.Sometimes even if we dont mean for it to things get in the way of that happening.My prayer for myself and our church is that we constantly press our way into God's prescence by being willing to totally surrender to Him and His Holy Spirit.If we do we can change our world.I know we have it in us because I have sensed God prescence in our church more than any I have before.Take care and see ya Sunday

Just Being Real

Hey everybody.After getting feedback from people I respect I have decided to go ahead with the blog I mentioned in my last post but have decided to shorten title to "Bind The Strongman".First go to www.blogger.com.In order to long onto blog and make your own post enter user name of BindTheStrongman@reborn.com and use password 0123nvmc.For right now I only ask two things.First do not use anyone's proper name including your own.I think anonymity will allow people to be more open and real in sharing their struggles.Secondly I would say while being real also be aware there might be post that you may find offensive.Be forewarned.For any youth who read my blog please ask for your parents consent before viewing "Bind The Strongman"My only reason for doing this is not to air dirty laundry but allow others to pray for us and our real struggles.I pray healing will come to each and every one of you.I love you and God bless.

Just Cant Wait

Hey everybody.Sorry it's been so long since last post.Computer issues again.Have a lot going on in my spirit I'd like to talk about just havent been able to.I had impressed on me the idea of setting up a blog called "Binding the Strongman"where people could go to post those struggles they want to share so we could be in prayer and intercession for one another.Tell me what you think.Looking forward to church tomorrow with the water baptism,state of the church address, and Jason Crabb.I really appreciate his ministry because he is real with you and totally sold out for Jesus.That's my prayer for all of us including myself.Love everybody and see you tomorrow
