Random Thought Friday
WOW—what a week! After all that has been happening—especially in the realm of “blog-world,” I have to say—God is AWESOME…I can’t believe I get to do what I do.
A few thoughts on this Friday morning…
First—tomorrow night is baptism at NewSpring. We will begin at 5:00…it will be the first baptism in our new building. We will see right around 100 people confess Jesus as Lord tomorrow—and in my opinion—there is nothing sweeter on the planet!
Second—our messages at NewSpring are now available on itunes…to subscribe to our podcast you can go here.
Third—our home group met last night and the discussion was awesome. We are currently going through the book of James…we did chapter four last night. WOW—James was an intense dude!
Oh yeah—Lucretia made another one of her awesome cakes—but it wasn’t red velvet—it was a white chocolate fudge cake…the cake has white chocolate in the mix…and then it has a layer of fudge between the two layers of cake…and then the icing is whipped cream and white chocolate. Uh—our home group at THE ENTIRE CAKE! I was ticked—there was none to take home!!!
(I will put the red velvet cake recipe on this blog tomorrow)
Fourth—Encouragement is AWESOME. Thanks to all of you who have e-mailed in encouraging words and said prayers for me this week. What you need to know is this…
I am more passionate about Jesus than I have ever been…I am more fired up about the church than I have ever been…I can’t wait for Sunday…I can’t wait to see what God is going to do next. The things that happened this week didn’t discourage me—they fired me up…and God has used it all to show me that we are on the right track!
Fifth—Tomorrow is a 12 mile run for the marathon crew. This will be the longest run most of the group has ever done—pray for us!!! AND if you see us—PLEASE do not honk your horn, that scares the mess out of us!!! Besides—if you DO honk the horn…you have usually passed us…and we are not going to turn around to see who you are! A runner has to look at what lies ahead!
That’s about it—enjoy your Friday…I am off to the gym!
