I am excited as I think about the rapidly approaching Sunday. I am really enjoying the One Prayer series so far. Last week's message by Mark Batterson on 'Make Us Dreamers' was inspiring and challenging. If you thought last week's message was good, you haven't seen anything yet. This week we hear from Ed Young Jr., pastor of Fellowship Church outside of Dallas, TX. Ed's message is 'Make Us Wake Up'. All I can say is, "get ready!"
If you remember today, be in prayer about the Hartsville campus location. Many people are praying today that God would give us his favor and allow for us to meet at Trousdale County High School (pictured above). We believe it could be a great location to minister to the people of Hartsville. In addition, it is a great opportunity to serve the school and become a part of that community. For those of you fasting today, stay strong. Remember, Christ is our daily bread. He is all that we need. When you feel yourself wanting to cave in, go to Him in prayer. Ask him for the things we are praying for. Let him know that HE is all that you need. He will sustain you and me better than any meal.
Also, tomorrow morning will be a men's breakfast at the Faith Lutheran Church beside Dunkin Doughnuts in Lebanon. There will be a guy talking who is a part of the New Zealand Promise Keepers organization. If for nothing else, come for the loads of food we are going to tear up. I for one, will be breaking my fast in style. Also, if you have children at The Journey, there is a swim party at my house for the kids. Go the The Journey's website and click on News/Events for details. Have a great day and weekend.
