27 Days To Live, May 7th



Power Surge, Matthew 11:28-29, "Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls."

It's odd to think about your life as if you have only 27 days to live. The scripture for today is about casting your burdens on Jesus. I find that even though I have followed Christ for over 2 decades, it still is easy to forget that He is always right there waiting to help and to give us life to the fullest. Most of us go through life like I go through the airport when I travel with my family. I pack all of the luggage that I can onto one of those rental carts in the airport. Then I carry the rest as my wife and I walk with our 4 young children while pushing our double stroller and carrying our carry on bags to the baggage check-in. I'm getting worn out just typing the picture of that crazy scene. After going through the airport and getting through security where our kids are sometimes flagged as suspected terrorists for the next generation, we walk into our freedom. The feeling that we have when we get past the check-in is always one of freedom, relief and like we now have extra-hands. The burden of 'stuff' is lifted. That emotion and feeling is what we can experience when we take all of the stuff off of our lives that we have unintentionally piled on. We do that by placing our cares and needs onto Jesus. We do that by getting rid of the unnecessary stuff in our lives. You figure out how to do that be asking yourself a clarifying question, "what if I had one month to live?"

Great devotional, "Exceedingly Abundantly"

Today I read a great devotional from Joel Osteen Ministries that I thought would be an encouragement to you. To often we settle for mediocrity & second best in our lives. Many times I trust God for so little when He really wants to bless me big! I want to challenge you today to remember that God can do more in & through your life than what your currently believing for! Take a step & believe big today! TODAY'S SCRIPTURE "Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever" (Ephesians 3:20-21, NKJ) TODAY'S WORD from Joel and Victoria God wants to do exceedingly abundantly above all you can ever ask, think, or imagine. In another place, it says that no person has ever seen, heard, or even imagined the wonderful things that God has in store for those who love the Lord. But notice that it's acco

God, make a fresh start in me, shape a Genesis week from the chaos of my life...”.   Psalm 51:7-15 (MSG) On July 4, 2012, hundreds of thousands of people eagerly gathered in San Diego, California, to enjoy an 18-minute fireworks show that was advertised as one of the "biggest in the nation."   People waited for hours for what was sure to be the best ever Big Bay Boom. Hundreds of thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours had been spent on planning and preparing for this epic event.  A few minutes before the anticipated 9 p.m. start time, the show began, unexpectedly. In one loud blast, all of the fireworks ignited simultaneously. Th
