Sometimes it better to shut up and listen, rather than to type and think you know everything… how would you feel if God told ya that?
8 years ago today I married the hottest most beautiful women! I married up! Thank u Lord for blessing me with a God fearing, God loving gal!
Was blessed this afternoon to see a student who couldn’t make it to this morning service, take the lords supper by himself, simply beautiful
RT @jakedudley: Had the honor of leading a friend of mine to Jesus last night next to a bon fire at 3 in the morning. It was sweet. Than …
Humbled, Blessed and Thankful, 3 words that ran through my mind as i traveled on 24 from the state of Alabama, to my home in Warren County Tn.
As i pulled into the subdivision that i live in, i began to think what it would look like if it had been hit with an EF4 tornado. As i checked the mail, i realized how many people affected by the storms would love to be able to walk straight to the mailbox and not have to jump trees, or car parts.
When i opened the front door i was so very thankful, more than ever before but also i felt an overwhelming sense of guilt that i was able to open the door to my house, because 3 hours before i was standing on a concrete pad where a family lived, all that was left was a few pieces of wood here and there, it was demolished nothing left. As i looked down the street the scene was the same, i have never been in a war zone, but i am sure it didn’t compare to what i saw.
I heard a story of a 14 year old and his mother. They were trying to get away from the tornado as it craved a path of destruction toward them. They were able to reach the car but as soon as they shut the doors, they were sucked back out by the powerful storm. Both lost there lives, the boy died 4-27-11, the mother 5-2-11.
As i looked at the place where they once called home, i began to weep, i began to miss my family, and was try to somehow grasp the desperation those two were experiencing as they longed for safety. What their last words were to each other, were there any at all.
If there is one thing i took away from this is be thankful! we are so blessed, we have more than 99% of the world.
Seeing communities pull together, churches toss there differences, race disappear, optimism and hope being embraced and LOVE being Lived out, were truly humbling.
I am humbled, i am blessed, i am thankful, I am forever changed.
And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, with thankfulness in your hearts to God. And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
