28 Days To Live, May 6th




Tuesday, May 6th

Today I am in Dover, Delaware at our Assembly of God Ministry Summit that we have each year during the month of May. I look forward to gathering together with fellow pastors each year from our district to hear vision for the upcoming year. It's a great time to get re-connected with old friends and encourage one another. Some of my heroes are in the picture above. John & Theresa Decker were the Lead Pastors of Freedom Life and I was the Youth Pastor prior to becoming the Lead Pastor 5 years ago. I thank God for the different people that God has placed into my life in different seasons that have helped me become a better husband, father and Christ-follower. If I had 28 days to live I would think back to people like the Decker's that have believed in me. I would contact the people that have loved me and gone out of their way to be a blessing to me and my family over the years. That is the kind of person that I want to be to others. We shouldn't wait until we have one month to live to take the time to thank those that have invested into our lives. Take some time and send them a note or a quick e-mail today to extend your appreciation! What will you do with your 28th day?
