I know its been a while since I blogged but things have been kinda’ hectic around the house. Between work, church, M’s work and The extraction of a few wisdom teeth, its been pretty busy.

This week we have had revival and it has been great! What a privilege to have our old pastor from Casey come down and preach the revival. It’s good to get preached to for a change and to hear Tom once again brought back a lot of memories. Tom is one of the greatest pastors a church could ask for and I hope that a little bit of him can rub off on me.

Last night he spoke about putting God first and it was just what I needed to hear.
The text that he preached from was Matthew 6:33:
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
The “all these things” that this verse is talking about is all of the things that we need.

It makes sense, God owns the cattle on a thousand hills and he owns me too so why wouldn’t I want to put him first?

Then this morning on the radio Michael Easley was talking about abiding in Christ. He made the comment that you never see a grape struggling to be a grape, it just happens, as long as it abides in the vine.

I guess God is just trying to tell me to trust in Him and make sure that I am abiding (depending on Him for every nuance of my existence) in Him.

By the way the wisdom teeth thing went just fine. Ol’ doc Fonner plucked them like strawberries (the kind of strawberries that grow out of your face and bleed when you pluck them). No joke, from the first one to the fourth one, it couldn’t have taken more than three minutes.

Anyway, four teeth and two nights of revival later and I am feeling pretty good and my
“spirit tank” is pegged on “F”.
