Chrysalis

My nephew Jordan is serving, on a Chrysalis Flourney this weekend.  He went on his Flight last summer and is giving back by serving this year.  I’m really happy and excited for him.  I know how Awesome it is to serve and give back what you have been blessed with and by.  I pray this weekend goes well for the caterpillars and the team as well.

emmaus walk #51 continued

I served as Head Chapel this past weekend and it was completely fulfilling!  I enjoyed every moment of it.  This was the first time I served in this capacity, as I have served in every other capacity outside of this one.  I wasn’t sure how I would like it, since I’m such a people person and so outgoing, I thought being in the chapel praying all weekend would sure be boring, but that wasn’t the case at all.  It was fantabulous!  I really saw the power of prayer at work this weekend.  I saught personal answers to questions I had and needed to get answered and did.  I saw a brother get sick on Friday evening and then I prayed and he got better in a matter of hours, when he almost couldn’t go on.  I saw the look on the Pilgrim’s faces at closing and knew that all the prayer and hard work had truly paid off by everyone.  I met some cool brothers in Christ that I hope to build stronger relationships and foundations with as well. 

Glory to God!

Walk #51

Here I come!!!!!!   Heading out today to begin a Men’s Walk #51 at Kaiserhoff today.  I’m excited and pumped!  I will be in the Chapel praying all weekend as Head Chapel.  First time I’m doing this and I am finding that this is where I need to be this weekend, on my hands and knees praying.  What better time to spend a weekend than to be praying to God and thanking Him for all things and interceding for others.

I’ll write more next week about how the weekend went.  Please keep this weekend in your prayers also, for the Team and Pilgrims.

Blessings!

wednesday devotional

I wrote this little diddy for my men’s gathering today:

“-Continue to work out your salvation with fear and trembling, for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to His good purpose.”  Philippians 2:12, 13

 

I wanted to share a positive message today about God and His powerful Word.  I want to talk about His goodness that reigns over all our lives.  His goodness that surpasses all understanding.  His goodness that works in us to good things all over the world in every Christian around the world. 

What type of things does God have us do that is good and that furthers His kingdom on earth?

I think about how often I fail to do the good I know I should do.  I also think about the good opportunities that I miss.  Encouragement is, there will be more opportunities. 

I was asked to serve on an Emmaus Team that was to be held in January of this year.  I was going through some hard times personally in December and had to call the Lay Director and tell him that I had to decline my position on the team.  The walk didn’t make and the LD was asked to serve on the men’s walk in April instead.  I wasn’t asked initially to serve on that team, but last night I got a call from Robert Kent, the LD, and he asked me to be the Head Chapel position.  I was going to be the inside Table Leader, but God had better plans and I am going to be Head Chapel Servant.  I find that this position is where He wants me to be in proportion to where my life is now.  I want to iterate the aspect of how God will bring you another opportunity even when you think you don’t deserve it or think that He has forgotten about you…HE HASN’T!!!  He will pick you up and give you another chance and opportunity and enable you to still do the good for His purpose!

I believe one of many thoughts and views on working out your salvation is knowing that you will make mistakes and continue to learn in life what it means to be a Christian believer.  How hard it is to be a believer, but knowing that He will never leave us or forsake us. 

 

Where have you found God directing you to do good in your life?  In your family, community, world?

Emmaus

I was honored to be asked to serve on another Men’s Emmaus Team in April.  I am going to be the Head Chapel Servant.  I have never done that position before.  Basically, I spend my entire weekend praying for the walk.  What an honor it is to not only serve, but to be called to be in prayer all weekend.  I find that is perfectly what I need to be doing in my life right now.  Spending time with my Abba Father.  I look forward to the weekend and what new things God will reveal to me during that weekend as well.

If you haven’t served before, I would say that you should turn in an application to your local Emmaus community and get involved!  You will always get back more than you ever put in when you say YES to God!

Blessings!
