Voices of Truth

I rolled over and looked again, the bring red numbers glared at me, it was 4am. I had only slept 3 hours and now I was wide awake. “What was I doing?” I thought, “I can’t go through with this! I’m not ready!” Yet, I had seen it already; I was on the program I couldn’t bow out now! But even now in the dark I was shaking, I had to be brave but I was scared more than anyone could every know.

Oh, What I would do to have the kind of faith it takes to climb out of this boat, I’m in, onto the crashing waves…

A 9/11 Miracle

They say that my children will ask me where I was on September 11, 2001. They will learn about it in school in history class. They will want to know, what I remember and what I felt. They will ask me questions about what I saw and how it changed the course of American History. But beyond the facts and beyond my own feelings, beyond it all I hope that I will be able to share a story to my future children that a will show a miracle happen that day. That caused a 17 year old faith grow 10x in size and was able to see that God was still in control even when it felt the world had fallen apart.

Judge Not

The doors had barely swung open to the court room when he had already heard the judgment called. “GUILTY!” shouted the Judge as he slammed down the gravel, “Guilty, Guilty, GUILTY!” He was taken back as he staggered in. He had not even had a fair chance; He didn’t even get a chance to plea his case. He looked over at the jury box, would they be so quick with their verdict. Twelve angry men stared back at him. He began to fight back tears as he tried to stutter out a plea but kept getting cut off. He just need one face to look at him that was not judgmental. One face that would just listen, they did not know his story, they did not know the who, what, where or why of the situation. They had stamped a”Guilty” sign on him long before he had arrived.

Heritage Conference: Song: Carry On

On Thursday night of Heritage Conference as pre-service prayer went on for almost 2 hours. Church did not even begin till 8.15p (Prayer at 6.30p) Then after a quick sermon, altar call went on for a couple more hours.

During the prayer service that went on for some time God laid a song on my heart. Which has been the theme of this conference. "Dreams & Visions" Though more then one preacher touched on the subject it was Br. DC Moody that was the biggest inspiration of this song.

A Peace Beyond Understanding

I had just finished up with a meeting and was waiting on the next. I knew it would be awhile because I had been there 3 hours and been to only 5 of the 7 meetings I need to attend. So I open up my phone to finish up my game of “Bejeweled” I had been playing. That when I notice it. I had 4 voicemails, 12 missed calls and they all were from family this was all in less than 10 minute time frame. That moment my head began to swirl, I knew something was majorly wrong, but what? I grabbed my stuff and flew out of the room as I listen to the first voicemail from my older sister, Janella. My sister was sobbing uncontrollably, as she told me to call her back right away.
