I am Blessed

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity. – Ephesians 5:15-16

Dear friends,

Words cannot even begin to describe all the emotions running through me right now! The only thing that comes to mind over and over again is – I am blessed!!!

I am blessed with a wonderful God! I am blessed with a wonderful wife! I am blessed with a wonderful family! I am blessed with wonderful friends! I am blessed with a wonderful church! You get the idea – I am blessed!

As I stepped off stage this weekend, I stood amazed at all that God did! When they told me our attendance was a little under 8,000 people all I could do was give God honor! To think about how much what started 10 years ago, with 36 people has, grown, was truly humbling! But even more impactful was the thought of all the stories that are being shaped forever by the grace of Christ. I am blessed! What God is doing through Loveworks is stellar! All He has done in less than a year with the afterschool initiative is nothing short of miraculous! Again, I am blessed!

Over the past weeks, months and decade we have made the most of the opportunities in front of us, and as we have done so, we have been blessed! Now I, and we, will embrace the next opportunity in front of us. On Thursday, April 12th at 7:00 AM I will undergo surgery to remove the most concerning tumor. While it is a major surgery, which always have risks attached, one thing I know is this – I am blessed! The procedure is scheduled to take anywhere from 2 to 6 hours, but obviously that can fluctuate. Because of the location within the brain where they will be working, the doctors plan for me to recover in ICU for a few days. The church will keep everyone updated at the JourneyChurch.tv Health Update Blog over the next few days.

Sunday we begin a new series called, “This is My Story.” It is a series you will not want to miss being a part of because of the work God will do in you! You have a great story to write, share and invite God to shape for your future!

On behalf of our family I want to say, “thank you.” We could not feel more loved or encouraged. We will make the most of the opportunities in front us because we are blessed!

Love you,

  1. I wanted to share our story, my son’s 18year old step daughter named Kylie, went to the hospital last night. Her boyfriend called her mother and told her Kylie was not breathing. Her mother told him to take her to the hospital immediately. My son and his wife joined Kylie, who at that time was in a comma and not breathing at the Norman hospital. They put Kylie on life support. To day at 3pm I called my son to check on Kylie, and Kylie has come back to us and doing better. WoW!, what a mighty God we serv. I told my son I would come and pray for her myself last night. Perhaps his pentecostal mother made him a little nervous. I told him to rebuke death and call life back into her. I called other prayer warriors also. At 11pm God told me He had heard our prayers and that many had prayed for Kylie to have another chance. Kylie is not saved to my knowledge. All I can say is WoW. It is good to have a praying husband also, although he does not speak in tonques, he does not mind me praying in tonques. He was in agreement with me while I prayed.
