Random Friday Thoughts

1. I'm getting ready for a funeral tomorrow. Roscoe Dickey attended the church I pastor in the 80s. He passed away and the family asked me to do the funeral.

2. Sunday, we get to dedicate Lauren Wall to the Lord. I'm so excited. This is the first baby dedication that we've had since I've been at Cornerstone.

3. I'm looking forward to this Sunday's message on Spiritual Warfare. We are looking at putting on the belt of truth.

4. I'm not making a Super Bowl prediction. The Colts and Cowboys were my preseason pick and neither one are in the game. However, I would like to see the Cardinals win for a few reasons. 1) Kurt Warner is a classy guy and I'd love to see him win another ring. 2) I don't want the Steelers to get a 6th ring before the Cowboys get their 6th ring. 3) I thought that Ken Whisenhunt or Russ Grimm both deserved the Steelers job when Cowher retired. They both were snubbed. 4) I like to pull for the underdog. :)

Busy Times

1. We finished up Revival with Ron Rhoads two weeks ago. It was awesome. If you are a Pastor looking for a great communicator to come and challenge your church, I highly recommend Ron and Heather. Check out his site at

2. This week, we have had the Master's Commission from Trinity Church in Cedar Hill. They came in Sunday afternoon and will leave after service tomorrow night. They ministered in our Sunday Night service. Then, they have been painting the interior of the church. We said a fond farewell to the "sea foam green" walls in the hallway and bathrooms. We also painted two classrooms and have two more fhat we are going to finish tomorrow. Matt Robertson is the MC Director and their team has been a load of fun to work with.

3. We've had several people who have been in the hospital or really sick. Could you please pray for Lucille, Ms. Irene, William (Bro. May's Son) and Bro. May?

4. Something I've been thinking a lot about lately is spiritual warfare. Ephesians tells us that we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities and powers of darkness in the heavenly realms. When you go through the struggles of life, remember that your fight is against something that you cannot see. Greater is He that is in you that he that is in the world! Be encouraged!

Tonight, we will gather once again for Revival services. They have been incredible. I know that God has something special for tonight.

One of the definitions for the word anticipation is expectation or hope. Faith is anticipation. You are believing....even expecting what God has in store. It takes Faith to be saved. It takes faith for healings. It takes faith for miracles. It takes faith to be filled with God's spirit.

What is your anticipation level? You can expect a service to be bad and it probably will be (at least from your perspective) or you can come expecting life change, transformation, renewal and revival and you will receive that.

Matthew 5 tells us blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness because they will be filled. We see in James that if we draw close to God (an act of faith), then God will draw close to us.

Expect great things! God will not disappoint. :)
