Psalm 16:5

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?

You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!"

Texas - My New Home

Two weeks ago I was praying for a better place to live here in Texas - I wanted a little less cost and to be closer to work and church as I am currently about 25 minutes away. The next day, the Lord started answering that prayer above all that I could have imagined. I found a new Craigslist posting for a 250 acre local hill country ranch looking for someone to stay on the ranch and do a little work in return for room and utilities/internet. That afternoon, I met with one of the owners and two weeks later, I have the job. To add miracle to miracle, I discovered that of all places the ranch could be, it was within walking distance of my elder's house so I will now be close by Christians from church. And, one of my jobs will be keeping the sprinkler system up and and running - something I have never done before. I found out later that my elder, now my neighbor, used to install and repair sprinkler systems so God planned for my inexperience!

So here is what the Lord provided for this undeserving newbie:
