Seems like the last few nights, God had been doing some things in my life and I think he's been working on some stuff, and preparing me for something I don't know what. Now I have dreams, (who dosen't?), but lately I've been having these crazy random vivid scenes and words popping up in my head. My favorite one has been from a clip Steve Ladd showed at a recent concert of Penn Gilette talking about a man who gavive him (Penn) a New Testament Bible. Penn is a devout athiest. In this clip, however, he asks the question "How much do you have to hate someone to believe there is eternal life, or salvation from Hell and death, and not tell them about it?". If I've heard it once I've heard it over and over again along with some other things that Steve had said and then I get to envisioning me, Bible in hand, and everyone knows with my ADHD I often have a rough time reading The Bible, but it doesn't stop me, something's sinking in. I'm out just preaching to people, and lately I've gotten up and preached little bits about people getting up off their "Blessed Assurance" and getting out into the world and spreading the Gospel. I keep hearing the words "Radical Faith" and "Trust".
Another thing that has become a serious thought lately that goes with that is my journey and my ministry in Texas. Could it be that God is preparing me to go share these things there? Am I just supposed to step out and go in the faith that God is gonna' handle it? Then of course the questions come of where will I sleep? How will I eat? But I'm trusting that God will get me there and through it. I have a terrific ministry partner there in Megan Cox. I also keep seeing flashes of us singing together, and how to make it work. Its been amazing. Speaking of which to do trips like Texas, it takes money, which you can donate to me by clicking the donate button, and also by buying my CDs. All located in the merchandise section.
For the first time today I legitimately had a thought of traveling with my friend and hero Mr. Ladd. I realize he's "On His Own" now, but he did get a massive boost from his friend Michael English, and I feel like I could use not just a boost but a good, Godly person in my life to mentor me, and truly take me under his wing, and teach me. Not to mention I think we could be pretty darn entertaining.
Then there's this benefit. This thing has been such fun to plan, and has certainly improved my prayer life. I was up all night for the last two nights praying over that thing, and praying for this deal, and praying for Meg (BTW I think there are still cabins open for her cruise coming up). I'm hoping and praying that folks will show up and not only help this church stay open, and maybe help Daniel sleep at night, but also that maybe someone who is spiritually hungry will be fed, maybe some souls saved, something.
To quote a song: "I Just Feel Like Something Good Is About To Happen" And speaking of hungry, I think I'm off to the kitchen for a snack. My stomach just rumbled like the thunder outside.
Please pray for me, and I'll continue to pray fpr each and every one of you!!
Blessings to you
