The Newsboys United – The Cross

29342230_10209738085683683_3314696033514029056_n-2.jpg

Recently my husband and I went to The Newsboys United tour. It was one of the places we went for our 25th anniversary. We don’t always go VIP, but this time we did. What a great experience we had.

One highlight was being in the question and answer session with hundreds of other people. Every time someone got up and ask a question they also gave a testimony on how their life was changed or touched by the Newsboys music and by their daily walk with this Lord.

Music can be a powerful thing. But music with no anointing is just music. The Newsboys United Tour is more than just music. The Band truly plays for The Lord. They are very humble and thankful for what God has done in their lives.

One of the songs that still is in my head each morning when I awake is “The Cross Has The Final Word”.  They started the song out with a video of Billy Graham. He talked about The Cross and how cruel it was of all punishments. How Jesus was made fun of, mocked, beaten, and so much more. How through Jesus we can have forgiveness of sin. He could have come down off the Cross at any moment. But He stayed there for everyone. He loves you. Only through Jesus is there any hope & forgiveness of sin. Many say is there any hope for me, the drunk, prostitute, robbers, murders, people who have done evil things privately and corporately. Is there any hope for you and I? The Cross is the only way!!!!

Then the Newsboys came out and did their song. What a powerful moment. We used our cell phone and video taped it. May this video move you to a respose to Jesus and what He did at the Cross. The Cross surely has the final word!!! You can be set free today. Your life can be changed. You can be forgive. Surrender to Jesus and what He did for you in LOVE….

There are so many more I could put here. Music can be an encouragement in life. Even when this session is hard for you remember the reason for the season and that because of Jesus you have hope in this life. Nothing you have gone through or are going through is too hard for the one who sent His Son for you.

John 3:16 (KJV)

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

Even if you have lost a love one. We are not as those who have no hope…

1 Thessalonians 4:13 (AMP)

Now also we would not have you ignorant, brethren, about those who fall asleep [[a]in death], that you may not grieve [for them] as the rest do who have no hope [beyond the grave].

Make this Christmas a time of rejoicing & joy as this is what God intended it to be… MERRY CHRISTMAS ALL

Let’s all be like those who have gone before us, & as Dr Sumrall said say “I Did Not Quit”… (Be not weary… Think it not strange that there is trials) DO NOT QUIT

image

image

2nd Day had a great time TV Taping around town. What a beautiful Day. Videos will come later.

This is the day that The Lord has made, I will rejoice & be glad in it… Enjoy your day…

image

image

The TV taping is going great. The theme is starting to come together as the Lord leds my husband… Sharing your faith is the one that stands out the most. The new life God has given you flowing out to those around you. Next it has been Faith & Hope. Faith to believe all of God’s promises & hope in His soon returning to get His children. I love when God brings His word together.

There are many roads in life. Rule #11 get lost on purpose. We do that when we travel & we find many special places. Here is one..our little piece of heaven.

We had a special day with family. Touring the town of Lexington,VMI, & more. Great day…

image

I woke up this morning with a Peter Furler song in my head, “We won’t forget…” We won’t forget the price that was paid.. We have been visiting the graves of some relatives & those who fought in the different wars,

As we walk around ready the tombstones & learn their stories we remember the price that was paid in building this country. As we remember them we honor their memory and service. They may have fought in war to help this country be free or they may have worked hard plowing the ground for their families and for generation to come.

I feel pride for this country as I learn about these men & women. We always want to take time to remember the price that was paid. It’s important to pass on this to the next generation or their life work would have been in vain. All it took for them to make this country great would all be lost. The schools have been changing the history books It is important we do all we can to bring the real history alive.

WE WON’T FORGET….

image

We are to give honor to those who have gone before us.

Romans 13:7 Render therefore to all their dues: tribute to whom tribute is due; custom to whom custom; fear to whom fear; honour to whom honour.

Many died in faith and are cheering us on… DO NOT QUIT…

Hebrews 11:39-12:2

11:39 These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised, 40 since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.

12:1-2 Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

Took a day off of TV taping & had a family day. Giving God the glory for all he has done through us & for us.

image

Make time today for a quiet moment to sit before the Lord. Allow Him to provide the strength and rest you need. While doing this, ask Him to reveal to you any areas of your life in which you are “striving” needlessly. He longs to provide peace and rest for His children. – Charles Stanley

image

image

Come to me, all who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me; for I am gentle and humble of heart, and you will find rest for your soul. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light. Matthew 11:28–30

Learn of me….I will give you rest….He said He would give us His Peace…His Rest…Come away, He calls us to Himself… Are you weary, He is your rest… Are you heavy laden…He will be your rest… He is gentle…YOU WILL FIND REST FOR YOUR SOUL (your mind, your will, & your emotions)….

Stonewall Jackson – “You may be whatever you resolve to be.” This statement was backed up by his faith in God alone. He recognized that God was the reason for any success he had. He was humble and had unshakable faith. He had pertinence and determination to overcome all of life’s obstacles through his faith in God.

As Christians we all experience challenges & difficulties, however we need to remember the promises of God which remind us that it will be worth it all in the end.

Let us remember all those who have went before us and they trusted God and lived by this scripture, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens
me” (Philippians 4:13).

image

…that all men are created equal…

Romans 2:11 For there is no respect of persons with God.

2 Peter 3:9 The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us,[a] not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance.

Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address: Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battlefield of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate, we can not consecrate, we can not hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Psalm 62:5 My soul, wait only upon God and silently submit to Him; for my hope and expectation are from Him.

1 Peter 3:12
For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their prayers;…

President Abraham Lincoln, Robert E. Lee & so many others, knew the power of prayer. They all would wait patiently for God’s wisdom. They would live their lives knowing & walking with God & giving God Glory…

Psalm 12:6 The words and promises of the Lord are pure words, like silver refined in an earthen furnace, purified seven times over.

God’s word & promises are pure. His desire is to fulfill His promises in & through us.

We are also to have prayers of thanksgiving.

Psalm 107:1 Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever…

I love the fact that each morning is new and we can be refreshed in God’s Love, Grace, & Mercy.

Slow down and be silent in God’s presence today.

“God shapes the world by prayer. Prayers are deathless. They outlive the lives of those who uttered them”. E.M. Bounds

Thank God for the special days with our family…

We honor those who has gone before us for their courage & strength.

Sometimes we don’t have that same strength. We get into a rut.

If you keep doing what you’re doing, you’ll keep getting what you’re getting. Maybe it’s time to get out of your rut and find a new path. God will help you change direction and accomplish new goals that align with His will. Don’t settle for the mediocrity of an unplanned life. Start living intentionally. – Charles Stanley

Mediocrity – of only ordinary or moderate quality; neither good nor bad; barely adequate, run-of-the-mill. not satisfactory; poor; inferior, low-quality, second-rate; so-so…

So many times we settle for mediocrity in our lives. Barely adequate, run of the mill… Neither good nor bad….We except less than we should.

The bible says in Revelation 3:15-17
Amplified Bible (AMP)
15 I know your [record of] works and what you are doing; you are neither cold nor hot. Would that you were cold or hot!
16 So, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will spew you out of My mouth!
17 For you say, I am rich; I have prospered and grown wealthy, and I am in need of nothing; and you do not realize and understand that you are wretched, pitiable, poor, blind, and naked.

Here observe, What a difference there was between the thoughts they had of themselves and the thoughts that Christ had of them. (1.) The high thoughts they had of themselves: Thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing, rich, and growing richer, and increased to such a degree as to be above all want or possibility of wanting. Perhaps they were well provided for as to their bodies, and this made them overlook the necessities of their souls. Or they thought themselves well furnished in their souls: they had learning, and they took it for religion; they had gifts, and they took them for grace; they had wit, and they took it for true wisdom; they had ordinances, and they took up with them instead of the God of ordinances. How careful should we be not to put the cheat upon our own souls! Doubtless there are many in hell that once thought themselves to be in the way to heaven. Let us daily beg of God that we may not be left to flatter and deceive ourselves in the concerns of our souls. – Matthew Henry

Others hold us back & we hold ourselves back . We make excuses to why we can’t do something. Let’s make a point of it everyday to strive to walk out God’s plan for our lives. Let’s live on purpose… Let’s make plans to be the overcoming Christians God made us to be. image

IT’S A MATTER OF FAITH…

It’s really a matter of faith. God would never ask you to do something without empowering you to accomplish it. This doesn’t necessarily mean you will do it perfectly, but each step of obedience is a victory. The alternative is to play it safe, but then you’ll miss out on God’s best for your life.

IT’S A MATTER OF FAITH…

‘Never take counsel of your fears” Stonewall Jackson

“You may be whatever you resolve to be.” Stonewall Jackson

Don’t let fear hold you back. Jesus was always telling the people, DO NOT FEAR….

Isaiah 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you,
Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

He will always be with you. He will help you… He will uphold you… He will give you strength…

You can make it. You can be what He wants you to be. Walk out by faith today… You are an overcomer.

“Dare I Say” a Peter Furler Song

There is a target on my back...BUT GOD is my shield....

There is a target on my back…BUT GOD is my shield….

Everyone knows my husband Len & I are Peter Furler fans. I felt led to write this article because the song hits home.

Before I start I must say that the words of the song are not all on here just right, but the thoughts and concept of what it says really speaks to the heart of the matter. Also, I am not Peter’s manager, publisher, or any part of his marketing department. This article may or may not be what he was thinking when he wrote the song, but it is the way I feel and experience when I hear it. I am sure there are others out there that may feel or have felt the same things I have.

Go to the bottom of this article and read the words & there will be some links to hear some of the song and buy it below….

There is a target on our back…

Wow, this is so true. Satan goes around like he is something. He takes advantage of every situation telling lies and ready to pounce on us.

1 Peter 5:8
Amplified Bible (AMP)
8 Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.

He has the same tactics as always. His whole goal is to devour you.

I like what the message bible says….

1 Peter 5:8
The Message (MSG)
He Gets the Last Word

8-11 Keep a cool head. Stay alert. The Devil is poised to pounce, and would like nothing better than to catch you napping. Keep your guard up. You’re not the only ones plunged into these hard times. It’s the same with Christians all over the world. So keep a firm grip on the faith. The suffering won’t last forever. It won’t be long before this generous God who has great plans for us in Christ—eternal and glorious plans they are!—will have you put together and on your feet for good. He gets the last word; yes, he does.

We are all in this together and have felt his attacks….BUT GOD….. Oh Praise God “He makes all things beautiful in His time” Ecclesiastes 3:11

“THERE IS A TARGET ON MY BACK

John 8:44
Amplified Bible (AMP)
44 You are of your father, the devil, and it is your will to practice the lusts and gratify the desires [which are characteristic] of your father. He was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a falsehood, he speaks what is natural to him, for he is a liar [himself] and the father of lies and of all that is false.

“THERE IS A TARGET ON MY BACK

We wrestle not with flesh & blood, but satan uses people and he is the father of all lies. Wow, it just hit me hard why telling lies are so ugly, hurtful, and is not what should be in a child of God. Maybe that is one of the tactics is for a believer to conform to the worlds attitude “it is only a small lie”, “a little white lie”, “it won’t hurt anyone”…..

What we need to do is to say: ” Hay hay you best be on your way”

“THERE IS A TARGET ON MY BACK”

James 4:7
King James Version (KJV)
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

“THERE IS A TARGET ON MY BACK

“Do you think I don’t see through your lame disguise. Every time your lips move I know there telling lies.”

We all have seen his disguises, but some how we continue to forget who is in control. We forget who has our back.

Romans 8:31
King James Version (KJV)
31 What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?

Psalm 5:12
King James Version (KJV)
12 For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous; with favour wilt thou compass him as with a shield.

Dear Son & Daughter,

Luke 22:31-32
…Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:

…..But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not: and when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren.

Jesus

2 Corinthians 1:4
King James Version (KJV)
4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

There is so much more I could say and so much I feel when listening to this song. Yes there is a target on my back, BUT GOD has covered it with the blood of Jesus….

I will leave you with that last line of Luke 22:32 …when thou art converted, strengthen thy brethren….. (…turn to your companions and give them a fresh start.”)

PS…Do not focus on the target, but on THE SON & SHEILD….

Angie Paxton

“Dare I Say” – Peter Furler

Dare I say you’ve have been guessing a few things wrong.
Dare I say you’ve been playing your hand too strong.
Dare I say you get bolder when the close gets clear.
Dare I say you got some of the hang out here.

I know there’s a target on my back and your ready to attack, but there’s something that you lack. Your going to miss me.
I know you got nothin up your sleeve, so go back to where you came. It don’t matter where you aim, your going to miss me.

Dare I say all your tunes have a hollow ring.
Dare I say you can’t sail them if the bird don’t sing.
Dare I ask what are your doin on a horse that high.
Kicking dust sniffing out another best buy.

Chorus:

My my what an inconvenient lie. You used to be so right. Oh, hay hay you best be on your way. Your stillin in my life.

Dare I say I ask what exactly it is you do? I’m familiar with the hell you want to put me through.

Chorus: x2
I know you got nothin that I need. You got no one else’s to blame. So go back to where you came, I’m not going to miss you.

Dare I say you’ve been guessing a few things wrong.
Dare I say you’ve been playing your hand too strong.

Do you think I don’t see through your lame disguise. Every time your lips move I know there telling lies.
