Living the Buried Life

So many people in life have AWESOME goals, visions, dreams, ambitions, etc. However there are some people who just don't know what they want, and keep searching in different areas. The first thing we need to do is trust in the Lord with ALL our hearts, and not lean on our own (crazy) understanding.
With all these goals and dreams we have for our lives, not to mention the calling God has given us, we are sometimes distracted by what the Bible describes as the spirit of python. (Acts 16:16-18) We can not even see how slowly this spirit will wrap itself around us squeezing harder and harder until we are out of breath. (or spirit of God) Let me encourage you today to take hold of those things god has planned for your life and don't get caught up or slowed down by the python of the world. Luke 10 says we have the power and authority to tread or stump on the serpent. You have victory today is Christ, so run and live a life of dreams, not a buried life full of "as beens" or "once were's"

Search & Rescue

After reading and studying just to find out more about Jesus and the characteristics of Him I have found out that yes He was a nice and awesome man, but He did have some frustrations as well. One frustration I think He had was dealing with the fact that He just wants people to see what He can see.
We read in the Gospels man scriptures that talk about Jesus asking people why they can not see or understand what is going on around them. It is our duty and job to try and see what God wants us to see. He saw so many people who are lost and wants us as Christians to go out and search and rescue those that are separated from Jesus Christ. We are on a mission to be apart of the search and rescue team to reach out and and find those that are lost.
Why should we just sit back in our comfortable spot while some of our friends and family are struggling to stay above the water. it is time for us to go on search and rescue !!!
