    John answered them, 'I baptize in water, but among you stands one whom you don't know. He is the one who comes after me, who is preferred before me, whose sandal strap I'm not worthy to loosen.' These things were done in Bethany beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing. The next day, he saw Jesus...

    As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desir...

    He entered into one of the boats, which was Simon's, and asked him to put out a little from the land. He sat down and taught the multitudes from the boat. When he had finished speaking, he said to Simon, 'Put out into the deep, and let down your nets for a catch.' Simon answered him, 'Master, we wor...

Surrender

  • Then Jesus told His disciples, If anyone would come after Me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow Me. For whoever would save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. Matthew 16:24 ESV

    I stood at a crossroad in my life and wondered which path to take. At this point, I could continue pursuing a career as a musician who played all night and slept all day. Or I could enroll in Bible college and just trust God. I had to make a choice.

    On one side I felt like I was giving up my life, certainly all the fun in it. On the other, I had this nagging feeling that the Lord wanted me to do this to prepare for something else. Somehow I knew there was more to life than this. I ended up surrendering to His will and enrolled in school. Soon enough, I had lost every friend and fan that I had, just as I thought I would.

    After surrendering to His will, my life changed. Where I thought that I was losing the life I had, I actually found something so much greater. I had actually found my life, and the fun soon began.

    God has a plan and a purpose for you, but it requires total surrender to see it. At first it looks like sacrifice, but in the end the life that He gives you back is so much greater than what you gave Him. When God gives you a chance to lay your life down for Him, surrender.

    Prayer: Father, I will go wherever you tell me. I surrender to Your will. Use me as You see fit and give me Your vision, in the name of Jesus.

Today I have to go to court at 1:00 CST. My x husband filed chapter 7 bankruptcy. 16 yrs together 14 married we have quite a few things that are joint bills. One is the land behind the house with a small cottage on 13.42 acres plus a corner lot. I really don't want to loose it.

Would you all please say a few prayers that God would be my lawayer to take care of this matter.

Thank You,

Sharon

Amen Pastor Dion. When I chose to follow Jesus, it was the beginning of a beautiful relationship. Everyday He fills me with His love and pours His grace down upon me and my family. I cannot imagine one second withour Him. As I think back to the years I  didn't know Him, I cannot fathom how I got by without Him. Only by His grace did I make it to the day where he welcomed me into His family.

We don't see the big picture like God does, that's why trusting in him will bring us a better joy than what we have now! Thank you Pastor! Your always such an inspiration!

I'm currently in a situation where my career may need a change. It has been weighing heavily on my mind and keeps me up at night quite often. I'm praying for the Lord to direct my path and open the right doors and close the wrong ones.

Amen!! Thank you Pastor Dion you made the right choice. I'm sure you know how things can get crazy being n a band. Sometimes it can even lead many into things that are not good. I know because I dated a guy that was in a band his life today is very sad. He was such a nice guy but the drugs and drink took over he lost his whole family. They walked away from him. I know many neighbors that are still in bands. Some are older than I and their lives are a mess. Father, I pray that you lead them all that are into drugs and drinking to the cross. I pray in Jesus, name. Amen <3

Amen! The enemy will lie to us and say that his way is more fun.  Christianity and church is boring.  NOT TRUE!  What is more exciting than seeing prayers answered?  Singing praises to the Lord and being filled with joy unspeakable!  Walking daily with Him helping you all along the way?  Finding and claiming all of God's promises in His Word?  Having peace that passes understanding?  Knowing that you are loved by the Creator of the universe?? Yeah, I'll take God's way of fun over the devil's any day.

The world thinks we as Christians don't have any fun, but, they are the ones missing out! My husband just recently gave his heart to the Lord because he realized that the "fun" he was after almost cost him his marriage and God opened his eyes before it was too late!! Praise the Lord!! :)
