Check out my authentic U.S. flag...



My good friend Roger Burke recently got back from Kyrgyzstan where he was serving with the military in the ongoing war on terror. He sent me this flag that was flown in battle on April 20, just one month ago, which is pretty sweet. I could buy a flag in the local hardware store and it would have meaning, but there is something special about a flag that was a part of a battle. There is a story that goes along with it. It's similar to our lives. Something different happens in our lives when we are used by God is this epic battle between light and darkness. When we are used by God for His Kingdom, it becomes part of our legacy and we become a part of His. The reading for today was found in Psalm 145:4 (MSG), which says, "Generation after generation stands in awe of your work; each one tells stories of your mighty acts." The devotional called 'Planting for the future' said, "People are created in God's image as spiritual beings who will live for eternity, either with Him or apart from Him. If you invest in people's lives, then your legacy becomes like a giant oak, providing life for generations to come."
Like the flag I got in the mail today, I pray that my life would represent more than just a symbol. I pray that it would represent a legacy of encouraging others to greatness in God. I want my life to ooze(?) Jesus and be an example for generations to come.

Dream Bigger.  Start Smaller.  Ignite God's Vision For Your Life!  @StevenFurtick

The theme for year 3 of Decade of Destiny is, "GREATER," based on the best-selling book from Steven Furtick.  The Bible says in John 14:12, "I tell you the truth, anyone who believes in me will do the same works I have done, and even greater works, because I am going to be with the Father (NLT)."   2012 marked the beginning of a 10 year vision for our church called, "Decade Of Destiny."  Since that time, God has been gracious to our church as we have witnessed hundreds of people make decisions to follow Jesus, dozens more baptized and powerful ministry occur in environments geared toward children, youth, young adults, married couples and people from all walks of life.  This past year was an exciting year of INCREASE for Freedom Life.  We expanded the reach of our church by adding a campus in Centr…
