So this “BLOG RESURRECTION II” was not my New Year’s resolution. So, maybe it will stick? We’ll see. But I do have a lot of things to keep you (whoever “you” may be) updated on. My life is about to be pretty different than it has been recently thus I feel the need for this second installment of the BLOG RESURRECTION.

So, right now it is 8:05am. I have been up for about an hour and have had one cup of coffee. Feeling really good about today already. Tonight is Rush Hour and FUEL at LifePoint Church and I can’t wait to see all the kids that show up. I pray that the Lord would draw a ton of them to Himself tonight. That would be cool. I believe it will happen.

SO YEA. I’ll be talking to you soon.

Today God brought me down a notch.

I have been so selfish.

I have sought my own gain and what makes me look good.

I have been drunk with myself.

So today I decided to respond to this revalation by encouraging others.

This is one of the notes I passed out at our rehearsal tonight.

Each member has encouraged me in some way so I decided to share that with them.

I met with them individually to build them up and then challenged them by telling them they how I wanted to see them grow over the next 2-3 months.

I pray that they feel valued and know that there is no way I could do my job without them.

I pray that I could lead them better.

I pray that God would use us directly to see lives changed.

I pray that I am reduced to nothing and all that is left is You.

Incline my heart to Your testimonies, and not to selfish gain! Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in Your ways.” -Psalm 119:36-37

Thank You, Jesus.

5 Things

I had a great day today in HOTLANTA at Six Flags over Georgia. I went with about 35 students and a handful of our volunteers and a few Student Ministry staff (actually Chris is the only one that didn’t get to go and we missed him). Looking back on today I am grateful for 5 things (I will go in chronological order of how today happened):

1. David McCaman – Him and his wife let me spend the night on their couch last night so I didn’t have to get up at 4am to get ready and commute to the church this morning. Also, David and I kept it real on the way down there and I loved talking with him about a lot of cool things. I actually forgot that there were 15 upcoming freshmen in highschool behind us (which was good). I also think that if he wasn’t married already then we would get married.

2. The people I hung out with all day – Big thanks to Canaan, Mel, Kristie, and David and Jennifer McCaman for making today awesome. I learned one new thing about each of them. Melanie is funny. Like really. Jen Mc screams like a baby on rollercoasters. Canaan = pansy. Very good friend pansy I might add. Kristi Sully is jolly. Today was kind of my first day hanging out with her outside of church. David McCaman and I are way too much alike, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

3. FLASHPASSES – Others waited 2 hours on some rides. I think the longest we waited was like 15 minutes. Most waits were 5 or less. It was ridiculous. I felt bad (for like 3 seconds) as I strolled passed all these kids with their hearts set on getting on the next cart for Superman. HA! Then I laughed maniacally as I scanned my FLASHPASS and stole their seat.

4. My iPod – I switched vans on the way home. I was being a servant to pansy Canaan because he didn’t want to be on his van anymore. Should have told him to suck it up. So I rode home with a LOUD bunch of students and The Ole Bird Todd Graff (whom I love). It was a little different vibe in this van (yelling and shouting primarily) so the peace I received from the music was a relief.

5. My home – As much fun as I had today I did not want to be there one more second. My nose was tired of the 345690 different smells coming at it at once. My ears were tired of hearing parents scream at kids. My neck/head were tired of getting almost separated by rough roller coasters. And such is a day at an amusement park.

My (and probably Canaan, Jenn, Kristi, Mel, Todd, and David’s) prayer for today was Father, thank You for keeping us safe/sane. We love You and we thank You for FLASHPASSES.

Camp Whatever

I had an amazing time at Camp Whatever this week. It was my “rookie year” there and i loved every second of it (especially winning Tidy Cabins on the first day over my intern colleague Canaan Chapman). I just started being able to talk again so that is good. I have been hoarse from screaming and MS boys since Wednesday night! I am still far from singing, but I have a little over a week until its time to lead worship again. One of the highlights of the week for me was getting to lead Nathan Peterson and Spenser Siers as they crossed the line of faith and accepted Jesus Christ as their Saviour. They were both incredibly genuine as they received Grace for the first time. It was especially cool for me to see Spenser wrestle with questions about God through our Family Group Time and then come to the realization that he couldn’t understand God without having a relationship with Him. PTL! (Praise the Lord). Graham Moseley was another student who was in my Family Group that accepted Christ for the first time this week. He was broken as he explained to me how the first time he was confronted with Christ he “accepted” because he wanted the cheese and crackers! How awesome that God showed Him that this week! Needless to say there were many more lives changed for eternity this week and I am so excited to where our Student Ministry is headed now! I’m ready to see some world changers! PTL again!

June 11th

I will be teaching for the first time ever on June 11th. Woah daddy I am nervous. It’s weird. I will be talking about submitting to God out of James 4 in our new series “So You Think You Have Faith.” You would think singing and leading worship in front of people every week would be more nerve-wrecking than talking, but not according to all of these butterflies coming out of my mouth three weeks in advance! I gained an immediate and greater appreciation for what all communicators do every week the moment Chris Hollomon informed that I was going to be talking. Micah Huebner will be leading worship and it will be a fun night. And I get to wear one of those mics that looks like a huge pimple on your face. NICE.
