Finding God’s “Perfect Will”?

Check this out and comment! Would love to hear from you.

NEW PRODUCTWhat does it mean to you when people ask about God’s Will for their lives? This is something I have questioned myself…often. Even as a guy who’s been in the ministry for years, served in many capacities, and been around the world on multiple mission projects, I can still wonder if I am in God’s perfect will, doing the things I should be doing. How about you?

I’m glad to be in such good company! The fact is that many of us, especially those who sincerely want to please God and serve Him can find ourselves in gridlock, stopped dead in our tracks because we are wrestling with this whole concept of knowing and doing God’s “perfect will” for our lives.

Having approached the mid-life point of life and been faced with multiple decision opportunities over the course of my life, I want to share some of the things I…

Three Things I Learned This Summer

Originally posted on The Way I See It:

IS EVERYTHING.

I was asked to write about 3 things I learned this summer. I thought I hadn’t learned anything. I mean how could I, I hadn’t done anything. Wrong. It took a long time and a lot of thinking but I realized I had learned a few things this summer.

I learned that friendships are tough but worth it. I recently got into a fight with a good friend of mine over an on going issue we finally confronted each other about. She decided to give me my space and not talk to me for a while. In that time I was able to think. We have been through so much together, and yes some things tarnished our friendship, but we still got through them. I forgive her and although it’s going to be hard to forget, I’m going to try because I know it’ll be worth it to.

38 Now as they went on their way, Jesus entered a village. And a woman named Martha welcomed him into her house.39 And she had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet and listened to his teaching.40 But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, “Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me.”41 But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things,42 but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.” Luke 10:38-42

As I wrap up this series on bringing focus back to life, a quick look at Mary’s life can be very helpful. Here are a couple things I see from this passage that will assist…

Being still is one of more difficult things for many in our day and age. Yet it is one of the most rewarding things anyone can do who truly want want to hear from God…

Gained Knowledge

Hi,

my time in America is over for this year, but let me look back and explain you what the time was good for.

I think i start with my English. Throughout the year i learned more about the english lenguage in two ways: The first thing is that increased my vocabulary and perfect my pronunciation. The second thing is that i learned some of the american sign languge. Through that i could remember more words because i could connect them to a motion which helped my brain. The training time was great to get to know people and to make friends. I could meet some cool people and deepen the relationships between them through that time.

George, Trevor, Devin, Mike and me went to the “Youth Pastor Summit” in Orlando this year which was really powerfull. The speakers had good points on leading a youth ministry. They said that…

Robin Williams: Behind Our Masks

robinwilliamsIt might be overdone to write another post about Robin Williams, and with the abundance of articles about him now, I am almost certain you will pass this one up. Despite this hunch, I still feel like I had to write this post to express the lessons I have been thinking about.

Whose Light Is It Anyway?

I had such a busy schedule in Georgia this week. We were hosting about 13 people from Germany, so my blogging time was significantly cut down. I kept bouncing different ideas around, but one finally popped into my head on the floor of a bedroom. It is funny where inspiration hits.

One of the great lessons learned through this passage is the quiet action of Mary. It seems as Martha and Mary are in direct contrast to each other. Martha is rushing about making all kinds…

Happiness or Holiness?

My son, do not despise the chastening of the Lord, nor be discouraged when you are rebuked by Him —Hebrews 12:5

When God rebukes you, don’t become discouraged and depressed. Turning inward and downward is how the Holy Spirit is grieved within you. Instead, take God’s reproof and learn from it, moving ever upward in your journey toward oneness with God in Christ.

Be careful to not attribute something God is doing in your life to the devil. Just because God doesn’t allow something or He doesn’t give the “go ahead” doesn’t mean the devil is at work; it may in all reality be God sparing you of a great pain. You say this pain is great but imagine the pain God is sparing you!

God may reveal something to you that seems very hard or even harsh, but don’t let it overwhelm you. God is showing you now because…
