"Do what you can, with what you have, where you are." Theodore Roosevelt
I believe that God wants us to make the most out of life with what we have! Life is so full of all kinds of mishaps, all kinds of busy items, from basketball games, church events, what to have for supper, where are we going for vacation, and where should my 4 yr old go to preschool! Just recently we just found out that my oldest daughter Kailey would not be able to go to the preschool we had picked out because there are not enough kids signed up! Then my wife found a school for Kailey that she is checking out today, where Kailey will go 5 hours a day four days a week. All of a sudden life hit me with a wait a minute my little girl is growing up and way to fast, well to fast for my heart! Doing what you can, with what you have, where you are, some times is a very challenging process of events. Life is tough, life is full of life happening events that makes it very tough, but in the midst of it all here we have so close a God who remains closer than ever and loves us through it all! I pray that God will help me to do what I can, with what I have, where I am right now! I know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose!!!

Living life knowing that Almighty God is in everything in my life, first and foremost because I want Him there! Just to know that God is in every little detail of my life, He's in every large detail of my life gives me peace just knowing that He who knows all, and sees all, loves me unfailingly! Today I am reminded just how much I am loved by the King of Kings! I am confronted by the unfailing love of Almighty God whenever I go to Walmart, or any public place where people are present! I see people with all different kinds of scars from life. Scars from a divorce, from the loss of a child, the loss a parent, the loss of a job. People who have no food, no money, no bed at night or even a place to call home. I see people who have no idea how much Jesus Christ loves them! I see people who don't realize that God is longing to be involved in everything in the life of His creation but to often people remain caught up in sin and living the life of emptiness! My hearts prayer and passion is to some how have this amazing love, this perfect love that Jesus has, to just push out through me, and me magnified in me! To be open to the Holy Spirit and being obedient to what he calls us to! God is in everything in our life IF we will just open up the door and let Him in! To God be praised...

You know to live with Joy is where God has called us to live! The world looks as though there having a lot of fun, but they have NO joy. Joy only comes when one has completely surrendered to Jesus Christ! You can't get joy by having lots of money, or not having money at all, you can't get joy by having a big house or nice car, but YOU can have joy by knowing and living for Jesus Christ daily! We have just moved to Sedalia MO, to start a new assignment that Jesus has given me, and I am full of the joy of the Lord, because He who has called me, who has enabled me, has also empowered me and given me Joy, Joy, Joy! Jesus is the Joy giver, when life hits hard and it does it hard, Jesus is still here to give freely His joy! It reminds of me of song I learned a child in church, I have got the joy, joy, joy, joy down in my heart, WHERE, down in my heart, WHERE, down in my heart, I've got the joy, joy, joy, joy down heart, WHERE, down in my heart to stay, and I'm so happy, so very happy, I've got the Love of Jesus in H-E-A-R-T, so very happy, so happy, I've got the joy of Jesus in my heart! Jesus is faster than high speed internet, He stronger than the worlds strongest man, boat, car, truck, tractor, and He is the Joy maker and giver of all life!
