I watched the NFL draft yesterday. (I REALLY wish they would speed that thing up!) I guess the thing that I could not get out of my mind is the guys being drafted and how excited they had to be…this was their chance to play in the NFL—to live their dream, heck, who in the world ever gets to do that?
AND then I thought—that’s me!!! Just like I am sure those guys had butterflies in their stomachs…I have those same feelings every week. Just like those guys probably could not sleep the night before the draft—I usually don’t sleep on Saturday nights. And just like those guys are “living their dream” in life—so am I! I always get geeked up about Sundays!!!
I was especially geeked up this morning because…well…I didn’t speak today. Clayton King, one of my best friends and our teaching pastor, brought one of the best messages on tolerance I have ever heard. I don’t just get excited about NewSpring when I speak…I get excited about it EVERY Sunday! It was fun to be able to walk around and hang out with people…I had a blast.
Some of the things that Clayton said that really stuck out to me were…
Those were the highlights in my mind—it was a GREAT Sunday! A few more things…
#1 - Do Not Miss This Coming Sunday!!! We are closing out the America’s Idol series…and I cannot wait to preach the message the Lord has put on my heart. Warning…this will not be a talk for the faint of heart…but I promise it will be one of the most unforgettable services we have ever had at NewSpring until…
#2 - MOTHER’S DAY! Folks…I can’t even begin to explain this weekend and how awesome it is going to be. Every lady who comes into our church will be given the ROYAL treatment…the Gospel will be shared…and ladies, PLEASE bring tissue!!! This is going to be one of the BEST Sunday’s in our history!
#3 - We begin a new series on May 20th...and you will not believe how we are starting it!!!
That’s it for now—if you think about it please pray for me this week…it’s going to be extremely busy!!! :-)
