New You Resolution Day Five

Hey Everyone,

Welcome to day five of our 21 day journey in prayer and fasting.

Oh my goodness! I have felt so much tension the last 24 hours.  I have had a short fuse when it comes to dealing with conflict.  I have not realized how deeply this fast would affect me.  The change in food has been very difficult for my capacity to deal with trouble and difficulty.  It is forcing me to rely on God for my ‘niceness’ and capability.  The fruit of the Spirit comes to mind: kindness, gentleness, meekness.  Sometimes, I rely on my personality or charisma to bring peace into a situation instead of the Spirit flowing through me.  I pray, “Lord, forgive me.  Please show me how this can work with you completely in the driver seat!”

img_0130I ate oatmeal this morning.  We took the church staff to Celebration Church in Georgetown for a prayer meeting. That was a special time for us all.

For lunch, Erica and I met with Cole and Pam Phillips (pastors of Connection Church in Buda). Erica and I ate veggie options on the menu. It was nice to talk with other pastors about issues we deal with.  We talked about a few of you that have gone back and forth from our churches. 🙂  FYI, We often do that.   Dinner with our kids has been special. They are following the daniel fast with us for dinner and breakfast.  If you have kids, what are they thinking about all this? Have you taken the time to share with them?

Today, I began reading a devotional Bible that was written by a friend of mine, Dr Tony Foglio.  He used to pastor a church in San Diego.  I have become good friends with him through international mission work.

How is your scripture reading going?  Has God spoken to you through a particular verse or passage? What is He saying to you?

Today, I spent several hours working on the sermon for Sunday. I am getting really excited about teaching on worship and prayer. It will be very helpful for many people.  The gist of it: The NEW YOU should be more of a worshipper instead of a striver.

All for now,
