God is Working!

Posted by joelbyer on January 31, 2010

As you have probably deduced, this blog has not been too substantive for the last number of months. Facebook, other interests…etc…have contributed to this blog’s lack of content.

However, I just wanted to post and give God the glory for how He has been working in our church over the last few weeks. We have had some inspiring conversions, and some real victories won! It has been so encouraging to see an increase in attendance, more fervent prayer, and most of all…God doing some amazing things in people’s lives.

I can’t count how many times I have heard from others or directly experienced myself…God answering specific prayers. In a few moments, I am headed over to the church to pray with our church board…asking God to direct us and further His cause through our church. Great things are happening!

So…if you don’t have a church you attend, come join us! Some great things are taking place, and I am anticipating that this is not the end but the beginning!
To God be the Glory! It is HIS work and HIS church.

True self discipline???

From Fox…

OBAMA: “Starting in 2011, we are prepared to freeze government spending for three years. Spending related to our national security, Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security will not be affected. But all other discretionary government programs will. Like any cash-strapped family, we will work within a budget to invest in what we need and sacrifice what we don’t.”

THE FACTS: The anticipated savings from this proposal would amount to less than one percent of the deficit — and that’s if the president can persuade Congress to go along.

My take?

A financially responsible, cash-strapped family doesn’t just freeze a few items. They do whatever it takes to get back into the black.

Well said

Find a calling and then deliver.

β€œIf a man is called to be a street sweeper, he should sweep streets even as Michelangelo painted or Beethoven composed music or Shakespeare wrote poetry. He should sweep streets so well that all the hosts of heaven and earth will pause to say, β€˜Here lived a great street sweeper who did his job well.’” – Martin Luther King, Jr.
