I absolutely loved the opening song, “Our Lives”, with the video and pics of the middle school kids from Disciple Now.
56 middle schoolers committed to a lifestyle of purity. PRAISE GOD!!!
Julia and I had a great talk about her “giving no hints”…waiting until her wedding night.
Joelan and I will have to throw the baseball soon.
KATB brought it AGAIN. “Glory to God” and “How He Loves” are 2 of my favorite worship songs.
Jim always does a great job preaching but in my opinion, yesterday was his best sermon EVER! And he even worked in the Hope Center…amazing!
I got teary-eyed watching the video of the young couple who adopted the child. WOW! How incredible would it be to have enough financial margin in my life to be able to write a check for $10k, so another family could adopt a child! I would love to be able to do that one day.
God wants us to be debt-free so we can have a greater impact for the kingdom of God.
What would you do if you were debt-free?
Over 80 folks attended the first session of Financial Peace University. WOW!
Yesterday, we had the largest general fund offering in the history of Graystone Church AGAIN. PRAISE GOD! The top 2 general fund offerings in the history of Graystone have happened in the last 3 weeks. God is providing!
Thank you for your faithfulness to give. I pray that God richly blesses you and your family.
I was talking with someone who committed to tithe this year. He said that he is giving 10% of “every check that comes in”. He said that already in 2011, he is at 75% of his 2010’s W2. He said, “Man, the bigger my paycheck, the bigger the 10%.” He said that it is harder to give the larger amount (10%) but he is committed to doing it.
Several people told me this week that God has already answered their “post it note” prayer request. PRAISE GOD! Hearing all the answered prayers has increased my faith that my “post it note” prayer request will be answered. Keep trusting God for your prayer request and keep lifting up your prayer partner’s request.
I am so pumped about our new message series, The Ghost. I’ve been working on this series for a few weeks now and I’m pretty sure it is gonna rock our world. If we can allow the Spirit of God to empower us, it is unimaginable what God can do in us and through us. I will share more on this series in a later post. But it is a good one to invite a friend!
Stay ON FIRE!
