A rose at rush hour

Coming back from the mall yesterday I had to stop at the light. There in the middle of the busy entrance was blooming this beautiful rose. She was not at all concerned about keeping up with the traffic. There were no indications that she longed to be planted elsewhere. She wasn’t picky about who stopped by to see her. She was God’s little lesson for a man always hurrying but never feeling like he had arrived. She was simply at peace and showed it through every sweet blossom. 

Peace I leave with you, My peace I give unto you, not as the world giveth give I unto you. Do not let your heart be troubled neither let it be afraid. John 14:27

I Surrender ALL / What Have I Surrendered Today?

New Beginnings

As I was singing for nursing home ministry several years ago one of the ladies asked me, “What have you surrendered?” That was a difficult question but is one that we should each ask ourselves each day. “What have I surrendered today?”

Ministry everywhere is about being in the place of a servant and being a servant is about surrender. I pray you will be blessed and challenged today to surrender one more thing to Christ. Be blessed as you do!

Hope Rising – Review

Last night we went  to the premiere in Scranton of the Hillsongs movie, “Hope Rising”. Though it was supposed to be a women’s group night out I tagged along with my wife because I love many of the worship songs from Hillsongs United. It was great film, but really hard to describe. It was like being at a christian concert but it was more a concert. The presentations of Oceans as well as Mighty to Save were awesome! It was a bit of a promotional video for Hillsongs church but it rose far above that. The film shared some very intimate moments and details from the lives of the singing group Hillsong United as well as from pastors Brian and Bobbie Houston. I think they have in some ways defined a new type of christian film. It was powerful and practical and overall a real blessing to my wife and I. Here is the trailer to give you a sneak preview for yourself. Be blessed
