Do You Enjoy Counselling?

One of the joys of pastoring is counselling. I could relate to this 'Closer To Home' cartoon below.

As a pastor, do you enjoy counselling?

Brit Hume's Advice to Tiger Woods- amazing!

I did not jump on the bandwagon of using this blog to excoriate Tiger Woods. I preferred to pray for him, his wife Elin, and family. My prayers for him can be summed up by what Brit Hume said last week on Fox.

Brit Hume, amazing man, amazing boldness! Thank you Brit!

God's Wife?

New York City: It's a cold day in December. A little boy about 10-year-old was standing before a shoe store on Broadway, barefooted, peering through the window, and shivering with cold. A lady approached the boy and said, "My little fellow, why are you looking so earnestly in that window?"

"I was asking God to give me a pair of shoes," was the boy's reply.

The lady took him by the hand and went into the store, and asked the clerk to get a half dozen pairs of socks for the boy. She then asked if he could give her a basin of water and a towel. He quickly brought them to her. She took the little fellow to the back part of the store and, removing her gloves, knelt down, washed his little feet, and dried them with a towel.

By this time the clerk had returned with the socks. Placing a pair upon the boy's feet, she then purchased him a pair of shoes, and tying up the remaining pairs of socks, gave them to him. She patted him on the head and said, "No doubt, my little fellow, you feel more comfortable now?"

As she turned to go, the astonished lad caught her by the hand, and looking up in her face, with tears in his eyes, answered the question with these words: "Are you God's wife?"

Survivor- Outwit-Outplay-Outlast

Sunday, Jan 3, 2010, I began a series titled 'Survivor.' We will be discussing how to overcome the challenges of life. We will not only talk about keys to physical survival but also spiritual survival.

(if you can't see the video, click here)

Heb 10:36-39 TMB
But you need to stick it out, staying with God's plan so you'll be there for the promised completion. It won't be long now, he's on the way; he'll show up most any minute. But anyone who is right with me thrives on loyal trust; if he cuts and runs, I won't be very happy. But we're not quitters who lose out. Oh, no! We'll stay with it and survive, trusting all the way.

We are told not to give up in life. Following God's plan is the way to win at this game of life.

Survive- to remain alive or in existence; live on; to function or prosper despite hardship or trauma, persevere.

Thrive- to make steady progress; prosper; to grow vigorously; flourish.

Join with me as we not only survive in in this life but by God's help learn to thrive! May 2010 be a year of progress and prosperity!
