I must say this past weekend was great.  It has been a long time since I have felt this fired up about God.  It started when Kris and I went to Harrah.  It continued with an awesome service on Sunday morning.  Side note, why do people get hung up on whether Jesus rode into Jerusalem on a Sunday or Monday or whatever.  The point is scripture says he did it.  We do not need to use our logic in matters like these.  The point is He did it, and I thank God for that.  Sunday night service we heard some great testimonies.  The Spirit was really in the service.  A business meeting followed that could have gone a little smoother (April Fool's Day, Just imagine.), but we did vote to purchase a baby grand piano which we already had in the sanctuary.  Then we traveled over to David and Annette Stanley's to worship with Granny Daniel.  She is such a special lady and such a saint.  Our loss will definitely be God's gain when she crosses ol' Jordan.  We love her so much.

Kris  Brown and I went to Harrah today to participate in a workshop designed to help church leaders grow their local churches.  We got to visit Harrah Church.  What a blessing it was to get to be part of that.  Their are many things that we can do to make our little church more attractive to the lost.  We have a great chuch, and I am ready to make it better.

Yesterday, we had our annual harvest lunch at church.  I love to fellowship with my brothers and sisters in Christ.  It is funny how we get so wrapped up in church services and doing things that a Christian is "supposed" to do that we forget about how important it is to fellowship with one another.  We have several opportunities to do this during this holiday season at our church.  We started yesterday with lunch.  On December 4, our ladies group will go eat and go on the Parade of Homes tour.  The following Sunday night we wil have communion and foot-washing.  The Wednesday night before Christmas we will gather together with food.  Then we will go carolling around the community and come back for hot chocolate, wassail (no alcohol or course), and snacks.  My prayer is as we move into the future doing God's work at Folsom we will always remember the importance of fellowshipping with one another.  Have a blessed day.

I am amazed at how God uses me.  I mean, sometimes I feel I though I am not involved in what is happening.  It is kind of like being a passenger in a vehicle and someone else is driving.  Example, Sunday before last, I got to church about 6:30 a.m.  I felt different on this morning.  By the time I took the pulpit, I felt like I was about to explode.  The Spirit of God was dealing with me so strongly.  Needless to say, I preached and really felt as though it wasn't my words that were spoken.  This is how it should always be.  God doesn't want just what we have time to give.  He wants it all.  We need to be able to give Him everything.  When we do, we will be able to live an annointed life.  God bless.

I am always puzzled at the ups and downs we have in our walk for God.  Sometimes things seem to be going so well.  You feel like you are on cloud nine.  Everything is going your way.  Then BAM!  All of a sudden, from out of nowhere, you get slammed.  Bad thing after bad thing starts to happen.  God feels so distant.  How can you get this low after being so close to God? 

I just want to tell you that is life.  I serve a great God.  I am amazed at how God works.  At times something will happen in my life, and the only explanation is my Heavenly Father was in control of the situation.  I feel so close that I could almost touch Him.  In our lives, the people that are in this place are normally the ones that are on fire for pleasing Him.  They are motivated to do whatever it takes to glorify the kingdom of God. 

On the flip side, Satan is very real.  Some people think that Satan is just some sort of idea, something we can blame when things go wrong but nothing more.  I want to tell you that because he is very real, he does not like it when folks are doing their best to live a life for God.  He will fight with all his might to pull you from fellowship with God.  When he does, a person doesn't feel like doing anything.  They may have a job for church, but they are not putting any heart into it  because their motivation is all messed up.  These folks couldn't be motivated to move for God even if a hotshot was applied.  Sadly, this is where many Christians are at today.  They just go through the motions.  There is no joy of their salvation.
