2 Caring for Orphans and Widows – James 1:27

3 Equipping Saints for the Work of Ministry – Matthew 28:20.

Faith Like Potatoes: The Story of a Farmer Who Risked Everything for God.

Charles Billingsley -The many faces of Worship

12798897_10204846673361432_4855316029815261225_n-1

 

Angie and I really enjoyed a very special concert at Thomas Road Baptist Church in Lynchburg VA that marked the release of Charles Billingsleys new recording “Right Here”..  More than entertainment, more than a show, more than a mere concert; this night was a worship experience that crossed all generational lines and drew believers into the very presence of Jesus..  We work with alot of artists in alot of venues and I can honestly say that I have rarely sensed the moving of the Holy Spirit as strong and powerful as we did on March 6th at this event.. You can really tell that the team there are people of prayer. God showed up!!
Watching Charles live is a blessing in itself. His vocal range is truly amazing and the connection with the audience is most powerful… If there is one thing I can say about brother Charles it is that he has a real gift and passion to lead people into the presence of God and my wife and I both said after the concert; we really did not see Charles Billingsley or TRBC as wonderful as they are, We Saw Jesus! We felt His presence among us and caught a small glimpse of what the Glory of Worship in heaven must be like..
So, to sum it all up… If you buy one worship CD this year then “Right Here” must be it…. And…. if you ever get the chance to see Charles in Concert, you won’t be sorry… This is truly music that ministers!!

ConfessionsLargeFront-525x787

Mantra
I am a Ninja Mom.
When it’s 3am, and I have vomit in my hair. I want to sob, but I hear the baby crying.
I am a Ninja Mom.
When I am in a meeting and I realize the only writing instrument I have in my possession is a purple crayon.
I am a Ninja Mom.
When I finally get that important phone call and find myself running away from one of my kids throwing a fit about string cheese,
I am a Ninja Mom.
When I head out to a critical meeting and look down to see that she’s peed on me,
I am a Ninja Mom.
When I look into the dryer and find Cheerio’s, Barbie Shoes, and mismatched ill-fitting socks,
I am a Ninja Mom.
God gave me these children.
They ARE gifts from above.
I will never be perfect, but
I will PROTECT them with love.
When people ask me, what do I do for a living? I tell them, “I am a Ninja Mom!”
When someone tries to insult declaring it’s all I will ever be. I smile at him and say, “That’s right. I AM a Ninja Mom!
Introduction
I came about becoming a mom and a housewife wearily. My emotions were similar to one being picked up kicking, screaming and being dragged by the hair into the woods. It’s not that I didn’t want children. I did, one day. I willingly got married to the man of my dreams. But I had other goals in my life than Just being a wife and a mother. I had a world to conquer. When we found out my oldest daughter was on her way, we’d only been married a few months. We were living with my parents trying to figure out where on the planet we needed to move. We weren’t sure we had health insurance. Let’s just say she was not in our plans, but God’s. Choosing to stay at home was the furthest thing from my mind. I am not the next Betty Crocker or Suzy Homemaker. My cooking is edible, my cleaning laughable, and even the idea of sitting at a desk all day seemed claustrophobic to me.
When the decision was made for me to stay-at-home for the time being, I think I cried off and on for a good four years. It was for a whole list of decisions the choice was made. It wasn’t my choice, but it was the choice that was best for my family. I felt as if my hopes and my dreams were slipping through my fingers like sand in an hour glass. I struggled to find my footing. My family didn’t need me crying every day and living my life miserable. I needed to find myself in the midst of the circumstances that I never chose or I didn’t like. I needed to learn to see the good in a situation that wasn’t easy. I needed to find the affirmation in me to be okay with where I was in life despite the negative stigma I felt society put on me as a stay home mother. I needed to be okay with me.
In the years since I became a mom, something in me shifted. Don’t get me wrong, my cooking is still often just above edible and my cleaning and organization abilities are still laughable. I’ve branched out more professionally, and things for me have started to happen in other arenas.
I had a business partnership turn very sour some time ago. I don’t need to rehash all the details. However when the person realized his ways were being exposed he responded to me something that he meant as a personal attack. He said to me, “You’re just a housewife” and the inference was that was all I was ever going to be. I laughed at how that seemed to come full circle. For once in my years as being a wife, mother, and housewife, though the words that man said to me stung, I wasn’t ashamed of what he said. “Ok, I would rather be ‘just’ a housewife than ever compromise my integrity.” I realize that something had shifted. I realized how badly the world can view the role of a mother. I realized that I no longer shared that same world view. Not long after this confrontation a friend jokingly started calling me a Ninja, thus is why the Ninja Mom got started.
My family, my morals, my children had become more important to me than an idea of success that I might have one day held. I have learned that success isn’t just about money, or the image the world has tried to give the population. Success is doing and being what you were created to be. Sometimes life happens in seasons, and just because you may not be where you want to be in the moment, you could be exactly where you need to be. Success for me in this season of my life was building a legacy. I realize now that as hard as I fought this initially, God had given me a precious gift. I have become a Ninja Mom. I have learned to be a fierce protector and guardian for my family. I have learned to not shrink back at this title. I AM A NINJA MOM. That’s me. We all have the power and ability to be Ninja Mom’s too.
To all of you Ninja Mom’s out there; don’t let the world tell you there is something wrong with you. Being a ninja mom isn’t being just a stay-at-homer. It’s making choices that are best for your family. It’s being your family’s cheerleader, role model, executive, doctor, and pastor. Being a Ninja Mom declares you love your family, and you are able to raise those kids the way God intended them to be raised. Declaring you’re a Ninja Mom means you’re okay with the role God has given you, and you do it with excellence. So join me in my declaration: You are a Ninja mom, I am a Ninja Mom, and together we ARE a powerful force.

“SHOULDERS” By For King & Country

At first it was hard to watch this video. I almost shut it off. BUT THEN, the 2nd half really touched my heart. The Bible says:

John 16:33 …I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

God loves us so much that He has provided a way for us… We may experience things in life, BUT God is BIGGER than those things.

He says come to Him…. Everyone…. ALL & He WILL give you rest.

Matthew 11:28-30King James Version (KJV)

28 Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.

29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls.

30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.

He has BIG shoulders. He is BIGGER than sickness. He is BIGGER than loss. He is BIGGER than weakness. He carries all on His SHOULDERS….

image

image

This is part of the Chorus…
[Chorus:]
My help comes from You
You’re right here, pulling me through
You carry my weakness, my sickness, my brokenness all on Your shoulders
Your shoulders
My help comes from You
You are my rest, my rescue
I don’t have to see to believe that You’re lifting me up on Your shoulders

EVEN WHEN WE DON’T SEE HIM, HE IS NEAR…. And one TOUCH from The Master, can change your world…. THE ONLY HOPE this world has is that special touch!

image image image

More from the song…

When I’m caught deep in the valley
With chaos for my company
I’ll find my comfort here
‘Cause I know that You are near

From Joel & Luke about the video….

When it came to creating a music video for “SHOULDERS,” we knew that it had to carry as much personal and spiritual meaning as the song! We partnered once again with moviemaker and brother, Ben Smallbone (The Proof of Your Love | The Music Video) to write and produce this theatrical and heartfelt piece. After months of writing and rewriting the story, over two days of filming and countless hours refining, we’re more than thrilled to present to you the music video for our song “SHOULDERS!”

– joel & Luke

The Liberty Godparent Home – Choose Life

For I know The Plans for you

President Ronald Reagan issued a presidential proclamation on January 16, 1984, designating Sunday, Jan 22, 1984 as National Sanctity of Human Life Day noting that it was the 11th anniversary of Roe v. Wade, in which, the Supreme Court issued a ruling that guaranteed women access to abortion. President Reagan was a strong pro-life advocate who said that in Roe v. Wade, the Supreme Court, “Struck down our laws protecting the lives of unborn children.”

Reagan issued the proclamation annually thereafter, designating Sanctity of Human Life Day to be the third Sunday in January, which represents the closest Sunday to the original January 22 date. His successor, George H. W. Bush, continued the annual proclamation throughout his presidency. Bush’s successor, Bill Clinton, discontinued the practice throughout his eight years in office, but Bush’s son and Clinton’s successor, George W. Bush, resumed the proclamation, and did so every year of his presidency. (From Wikipedia®)

Thank God for Presidents that Choose Life….

The data on abortions displayed on the Worldometers’ counter is based on the latest statistics on worldwide abortions published by the World Health Organization (WHO). According to WHO, every year in the world there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions. This corresponds to approximately 125,000 abortions per day.

These statistics bring tears to my eyes…I can’t even put it into words….

But thank God for places life LGH….

The Liberty Godparent Home (LGH) is a non-profit, residential home for young ladies under the age of 18 facing the many issues that accompany an unplanned pregnancy. Founded in 1982, our residents come from all walks of life, different socio-economic backgrounds and various states across the country.

No Reason to be Ignorant of the Bible

prayer-bible-candle

There is no reason in this day and age that anyone should be ignorant of the Bible. We have so many resources to help us learn.

2 Timothy 2:15 (KJV) Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth.

I am going to give a few of the resources here. These are just a few of them. But all of them are free to use.

There are many churches that have free downloads and other resources. The main thing is that we spend time in the word, seeking and searching out the things of God.

Christmas with a Capital “C” – Act Now

This time of year there is controversy around Christmas. To say “Merry Christmas” or “Happy Holidays”. To Celebrate Christmas or not. Not sharing your faith or even mention Christmas. Now those who do celebrate and believe in the Christmas session are in the minority. This is a sad thing.

I love this song and video

So this post is to talk about places we can help so that others can hear and experience true Christmas. Places to volunteer and to give your money so others can feel the love of Jesus in their lives. It is our actions that show the Love of God to those in this world. Let’s not hold back. No matter what we are going through there is someone who is worse off than us. Show others the same love you have received from God.

James 1:27 (KJV)

Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.

Thomas Road Baptist Church has a great way they reach out… I love the heart of this Church. It is a church who loves people. Winning souls is their main focus. They are always reaching out. Christmas is no different…Help them reach out this year….

TRBC announces their Christmas Cares! This church-wide outreach effort unites us in purposefully taking the love of Christ into our communities this Christmas season.
