Men, Women & Marriage by Pastor Mark Driscoll

Here are two great messages from Pastor Mark Driscoll. He preaches about the roles and responsibilities of both men and women. I would encourage both married and single people to take some time and watch the messages.

Especially singles who are thinking about marriage!

Fearless living - Creflo Dollar

I had the opportunity to go to a meeting recently where Pastor Creflo Dollar was preaching. He taught on fear and here are some of the notes that I took:
  • 2 Timothy 1:7
  • Panic is groundless fear.
  • The US is now more afraid then ever before.
  • We have been given:
    • Power - ability to get results
    • Love - to love what/who is not lovable
    • Sound mind - a mind that is free from fear.
  • Fear comes from hearing the contradictions of the word of God.
  • Faith comes by hearing the word of God.
  • You paralyze the devil when you operate in faith and not fear.
  • If you tolerate fear you will contaminate your faith!
  • Genesis 3:1-5
  • Fear and unbelief go hand in hand.
  • The devil does his best to make sure that believers have the doubt that what God said in his word will not come to pass.
  • Anger is an expression of fear.
  • Fear is abnormal.
  • When fear is used as a motivator it will always lead you to bondage!
  • Revelation 21:8 if it's OK to have a little fear everything else that is mentioned in the verse should also be OK. Right?
  • Philippians 1:28 (amp)
  • Matthew 6:25-33
  • Meditating on the contradiction of Gods word leads to worry!
  • Philippians 4:6-9 (amp)
  • Peace - security in the midst of turmoil!

Young Vs. Old

"Nobody grows old by merely living a number of years. People grow old by deserting their ideals. You are as young as your faith, as old as your doubt; as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fear; as young as your hope, as old as your despair." -- Douglas MacArthur, General

Are you getting older or younger?

Runnin on empty!

This is a picture that I took a few days ago with my phone. The good news is that I was at the gas station when i did! This has been a hectic week for me. Had a lot of things I needed to get done and lot of things on my mind. Everyone of us know that running on empty is not a good thing but sometimes we find ourselves there! This is especially true for leaders. It is not a good place to be spiritually, physically, mentally, financially or in any other area of our lives.

So here are two questions:

  1. What are some of the ways that you make sure you don't get to this place?
  2. If you do get there, what do you do to recover?
Would really like to hear your thoughts.....

The group of people that I work with are beginning to embrace technology and social media. This is the reply I got from my leader Anthony Bass when he realized that my Twitter score was higher than his!
