After a busy week with no time to blog, I thought I might put life on pause and dash off a post. I will be speaking in Dalton, Ga. at Grove Level Baptist Church on Friday and Saturday and in Atlanta at Burnt Hickory Baptist Church on Sunday during the Sunday School hours. If you are anywhere near by, please come and join in the big large fun that we are gonna have. Because when God shows up and shows off . . . it is always big fun! I'm just saying.
I am teaching through the book of 2 Timothy. What a rich book! You can study along with us and watch the DVDs of the messages by clicking here.
I am working on a new book on the Old Testament story of Ruth. I dearly love her story. I am thinking of entitling it "All the Single Ladies." Just kidding. Anyways, I love her life message of a God that is sovereignly in control and actively at work in the lives of very common people. Gotta love that.
We are going to be launching a new website for our ministry, Standing Near the Cross. And whoa baby . . . it is quite the deal. Technology is a wonderful thing for those who know what they are doing. For the rest of us, it is best if we don't get all up in it - all willy-nilly. The new website will allow us to enlarge our reach and enhance our purpose, which is to encourage and inspire women to follow after Jesus. We need to live this faith thing out-in our humanity-and we need lots of support and encouragement as we go.
So, even as life threatens to overwhelm and overtake me at times, I remain firmly rooted in Christ, my King. Blessings.
