Check out this video of Indiana Bible College singing the song, "He Knows". The girl singing the song wrote this song about 3 days before her father died unexpectedly. God knew what she was about to go through and gave her the song just in time! If you are going through a difficult time right now, you are not alone. God has not forgotten about you. He is right there with you and knows exactly what you are going through. Put your trust in Him, and He will carry you through this. He promises He will in His Word.
"The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them;He delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit."

My Dear Sister
God’s Divine Power
Has given you everything you need
To do life and to do it His way
God has given you
Great and precious promises
Start believing them
And acting on them
When circumstances overwhelm you
Or people annoy you
Turn your faith into action
Dispatch what you need
From the holding tank of the Holy Spirit
And God will blow your mind
With what He can do through you
Never ever forget
You have been cleansed from past sins
Go FREE from this place
And live on purpose
Pour out your life for others
Then one day
When you close your eyes on earth
You will open them and see Jesus
And with arms full of riches
He’ll say, “Welcome Home!”
“Aren’t you beautiful!”
Now, go out into this world
And live like crazy!
Because your God
Is everything you need!

My Dear Sister,
The God of Glory
Has called you.
You have a ministry.
In Christ, you are enough for that ministry.
Never forget that showing God off is your ministry.
No matter what,
Keep your heart in your ministry.
Unveil your face
And serve others with authenticity.
That the power is in God's Presence.
Let nothing Come between you
And intimacy with God.
Keep moving forward
From glory to glory.
Let God thin that veil.
Remember, ministry is not about position.
It's about people.
Let name after name Be written on your heart.
Do not seek great things for yourself,
Seek a great God.
As you leave this place,
Go in a fresh anointing.
He who turns water into wine
Turns wimps into warriors.
You have a ministry.
Go fulfill it.

What does it mean to be free? One of the definitions in the dictionary describes the word free as, "released from something specified that controls, restrains or burdens". What are the chains that are restraining you and keeping you from the "release" and incomprehensible freedom that is found in Christ? No sin, no pain, no addiction, no choice you've made in the past could bind you up so tightly that Jesus cannot break you free from in an instant. No matter how strong your chains, He can and will set you free if you will let Him.
John 8:36 - "If the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed."
Psalm 118:5 - "In my anguish I cried to the Lord, and He answered by setting me free."

I haven't had much time to write lately with my move and all, but I wanted to make sure I shared some pictures of my cruise to the Bahamas with you. This was no ordinary cruise - it was a cruise with a purpose. Our mission was to bring the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the island of Nassau, Bahamas. The government was very supportive of us and made it possible for us to go into every public school on the island to share Jesus with the kids.
While on the ship, there were numerous concerts with speakers such as Josh McDowell and wrestling superstar, Steve Bordon aka "Sting". There were also concerts by Nicole C. Mullen, T-Bone, Hawk Nelson, The Crabb Family, Aaron Shust, Sonic Flood and more.
When we arrived in Nassau, we were all given different ministry assignments. Some hopped in buses that took them to the schools, some went to the prisons, and we were part of the group assigned to street witnessing. We passed out tracks and invited people to the Bahama Fest we were having that evening. At the Bahama fest, many of the Christian artists who were with us put on a free concert, and several speakers shared how God set them free from a life of sin and changed their lives. There were thousands of Bahamians that showed up at the event that night, and over 4100 prayed to receive Christ! Praise the Lord!!! Many churches will be reaching out to these people, so please pray for continued growth for those who invited Christ into their lives.
I have some video footage of the trip, but I am having some technical difficulties downloading it. In the meantime, here are some of the pics we took...

God cares about what we care about no matter how small it may be. Out of all the people in the world, He hears us when we call on Him and answers as if we were the only one. I love Psalm 139...
"God, investigate my life; get all the facts firsthand. I'm an open book to You; even from a distance, You know what I'm thinking. You know when I leave and when I get back; I'm never out of Your sight. You know everything I'm going to say before I start the first sentence. I look behind me and You're there, then up ahead and You're there, too—Your reassuring presence, coming and going. This is too much, too wonderful— I can't take it all in! Is there anyplace I can go to avoid Your Spirit? to be out of Your sight? If I climb to the sky, You're there! If I go underground, You're there! If I flew on morning's wings to the far western horizon, You'd find me in a minute—You're already there waiting! (Psalm 139:1-10 The Message)

WOW! This was so awesome! It was great to see BeBe and CeCe Winans on that American Idol stage! I like to see Christian artists up there. Melinda gave the best performance of the night - she is incredible! Oh by the way - did you all recognize the winner of the songwriting competition for the winner's song? It was written by Scott Krippane!

God sometimes allows us to get to a point of desperation in order to teach us to trust Him. Could God have sold my home months ago? Of course! - but then I would have missed out on some amazing times with Him as He taught me how to trust Him in ways I never have before. True faith in God isn't dependant on what He does for us - it is based on WHO He is! At times when there seems to be no answers in sight, focus on what you do know about God and His character. God is all-knowing, all powerful and holy. He is our strength, our fortress, deliverer, healer, El Elyon - The most High God. Nothing is impossible for Him!
A righteous man "will have no fear of bad news; His heart is steadfast, TRUSTING in the Lord. His heart is secure, he will have no fear. In the end he will look in triumph over his foes." Psalm 112:7-8

I have finally decided to get with the 21st century and create a blog! I am totally new to all of this, but I think it will be fun! I don't see myself as an eloquent writer - I wish I was one of those people who could paint a picture with their words, but unfortunately that is not one of my gifts! I will do my best however, to make this a place of encouragement for all of you. God continues to teach me so many things that I just cannot keep to myself! Please feel free to leave comments on the posts. I would love to hear from you guys. Also, if there are specific subjects you would like me to write about, please let me know. I will write about them in future posts. I also have a few links on the right hand column - check them out! Stay tuned...I'll be posting again soon!
