With all the devastation and horror that has happened in Haiti my heart is heavy. They are saying over 200,000 plus now killed from this horrific disaster! I heard on the news the other day that our natural disasters have doubled in the last 10 years. We are definitely in the last days. The Lord tells us in Matthew that they will become like a women in labor, closer and closer together and more painful. Thank you Jesus that we know the end of the story and as believers we know you are in total control and our eternal destiny is in your hands.
We just recognized "Sanctity of Life Sunday" " The 37th Anniversary of "Woe vs Wade", the decision that is now responsible for the killing of over 50 million babies in our country alone. Just to put this in perspective: As horrible as the deaths are in Haiti we as Americans are loosing the lives of around 125,000 unborn babies every 25 days! What can we do? We can be a voice for them by calling and supporting a bill to overturn legalized abortion in the state of Florida.
This bill birthed by Florida State Representative Charles VanZant needs our voice so that Florida can lead the way in saving the lives of our nations unborn. Will you be a voice for the voiceless?
Psalm 139: 14-15 " You knew me before I was formed in my mothers womb, I am fearfully and wonderfully made. marvelous are your works oh Lord."

Well, as we are embarking on a new year, how do you feel? Do you want to make changes or are you content to stay just as you are? Do you want a different job maybe or place of residence and or circle of friends? When I think of a new year I think of new goals and decisive life changes. Im not sure why it is these feelings surface except for the fact that "newness" in any form or fashion represents change. My personal feelings are a reflection of "What do I want my life to count for?" What changes do I need to make to more forward with the Lords plan for me. Am I available and flexible to CHANGE ? What I am saying is that with each passing year the things that were once so important to me become less important. My focus changes to building relationships , spending time with those I love and seeking out more ways of serving and furthering the cause of Christ. This is living out RADICAL FAITH! Trusting and living in a way that is not the norm. Standing up for our convictions in a way that rubs most of the world the wrong way. Living SET APART lives! I truly believe this is Gods call on our lives as we begin 2010. Are we willing to change our lifestyles, place of residence, circle of friends and or current jobs, in other words leave our comfort zones to further His kingdom? HERE AM I LORD SEND ME!
