My prayer, has often been Jesus your more than enough, yet recently the Father has reminded me that I have not been totally depending upon Him as more than enough! I am under the realization that depending upon God is far greater than just moving your lips with the words. Our God is a relational King, and more than having a large body of church goers, God longs for a body of intimate followers, that live the life of the Father truly being more than enough. Recently I have been praying sometimes 3 or 4 times a day asking the Father to be more than enough in the right now of my life! It is so easy to get caught up in the things of the world and yet still go to church, still teach SS, still live life available yet if not careful missing out on making the Father more than enough everyday! Living out in Sedalia, MO I working on a restart of the Nazarene church, and in this process, I am reminded that God is Faithful! I can't build the church and the crazy thing is God told me just the other day, STOP working on building the church, build my KINGDOM and the church will follow. So I am really striving to being a Kingdom builder instead of a church builder. God has all the blue prints I need, I just have to learn daily to trust and depend upon HIM! Father, be more than enough for me today! Bless Kailey at school today, bless Lauryn at home today, and encourage Carly in her Beauty work! BE MORE THAN ENOUGH FOR ME!!!

Well, today marked the beginning of a new day that has been really hard as my Little Kailey is growing up and today started Kindergarten! It was a very hard morning driving to the school, all of us in the car, and then to watch her until I couldn't see her anymore, tough stuff and hard to realize that she is growing up so fast! I remember when I was in Kindergarten, it was the funnest place, so cool. I loved every bit of being able to read and sing and play! This morning we all held hands and prayed for Kailey, I am still praying Lord Jesus build a wall of your Angels around Kailey to protect her emotionally, spiritually, & physically. Help Kailey to live bold and strong for you, to remember what her mother and I have taught her since she was just a baby! Jesus you are the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords, So hold Kailey in your arms of grace, and when she is scared, empower her with your love driving the fear away, and Lord when she is upset, help her to cast her frustrations upon you and to always remember you love her! Thank you so much for my family! I am so thankful for my beautiful wife, my 5 year old and my 3 year old, they mean so much to me! Have your will in our hearts in our lives and in our hopes! I can't wait to pick up Kailey as she comes running, I will embrace her with all my heart, trying to hug her before mom does, LOL!

Well, the other day I heard from one of the ladies in our church that she only has three days to live according to the Dr. What a mind boggling thing to hear from your Dr. yet our faith in not in the hands of the medical teams but in the great physician Jesus Christ! I am praying Lord if it be your will, please reach through me and Heal my sister in Christ! Jesus said in His word you will go out and do EVEN GREATER things then I have done! WOW! I want to be so used By God to make such an impact upon the very community we live in, and even upon our world like Jesus did! What do you really do with those words, 3 days to live! It seems like lately in my life I have been wrestling with this fear that I am going to die of a heart attack and leave Carly and the girls with nothing! Life insurance is needed, but fear has a way of creeping into our lives to where we find ourselves worried and perhaps even afraid! I know that my sister in Jesus is ready to go to heaven yet, I long to be so used by my Father, to speak the words and it happens, all because it is His will and because I am standing on the authority of the Living God! Jesus be with my friend who has only been given a 3 week left on life, touch her, and heal her in Jesus Name, Amen.
