I looked back over things I have done and letters I have received and I have been amazed.  I decided to keep a few cassettes and video tapes of my plays and sermons. At least I know what I have done.  I have a record.  You ought keep a record of where you have been and what you have done.  It serves as a marker for you of how God has guided you through the ups and downs.  And then, there is a greater record, one that you can check to see the grand way that God has guided so many through.  We have a record, check it. type to you later.

It is time to connect the dots in your life.  Start easy.  Start with today and see how it connected with an incident, event last week, and then look farther back.  You will  be surprised to see how God has been moving in spite of you.  Get started.  Take care. type to you later.

Get Ready

Whew!  Change is good, moving is rough.  It wore me out.  But this move allowed me to look back over the many wonders that God has done in my life.  It has propelled into the next leg of my journey.  I am ready, I am excited!  The sky is indeed the limit.  No boundaries, no holds, obstacles will not stand. 

So what is happening with you?  Pause to reflect on your day, your place at this time in your life.   Are you ready for the next day?  Are you ready for the next hour?  Get ready by acknowledging what God has already done.  Get ready, don't miss it.  type to you later.

Change is Good

I am changing a few things, physically, philosophically, spiritually, emotionally.  Well change does affect so many areas.  Anyway.  I was praying to hear clearly and when I finished there on the floor near me was a screw. I don't remember seeing that screw before.  After all I would have walked on it. I was not at home so examining everything for the open hole would not have been feasible. 

I just stared at it and wondered what was not functioning as well as it could. And then -just like that- I understood.  That screw was me and I was not plugged in to what was intended. No matter how I tried, I no longer fit and had fallen away; yet I was being restored to a place where I would make a difference.  I was being renewed, re purposed, restored, rejuvenated. 

Change is good, renewal is grand.  There are times when you just don't fit anymore.  It is not a bad thing if Holy Spirit has ushered you into that spot.  You see, there is always something to be received from wherever Holy Spirit leads.  type to you later.

Get in Shape

Every athlete in London has gone into strict training in order to qualify.  How much more so should we get into training?  We have already qualified by accepting Jesus, but we should not stay there but strengthen our spiritual muscles by training.  When we train through study, spiritual disciplines, being in community with other believers, being in communion with God, we are strengthened in so many ways.  It's pretty cool how our spiritual well-being helps our emotional well-being.  And our emotional well-being can get us in position for our physical well-being.

Let's get in shape!  Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize?  Run in such a way as to get the prize (I Cor. 9:24 NIV).  type to you later.
