New Ministry?

My lovely wife and I are on the threshold of something bigger than us. We feel the Lord pressing us to start a fresh, new Worship Ministry. It will be free-standing, and separate from any church affiliations. This thing will be similar to other larger and well-known ministries such as Hillsongs United, and Christ For The Nations Music. So please keep us in your thoughts and prayers. We will need so many things, and we trust the Lord to provide. But I’m sure He will have us put our feelers out in the local community for servants, and donations.

To God be all the glory!



To Follow Jesus

I thought I would share this video I found on YouTube. It amazes me how worldly I really am. Forgive me, Lord… forgive me.

The video is about an hour long, so know that going into it. The first 5 to 10 minutes of it grab you though.

Prayer Request

I ask for your prayers today. My mother is in her third bout with Cancer. My little brother had a stroke two weeks ago that was brought on by an allergic reaction to antibiotics, and my oldest daughter has moved out on her own… and is living in Atlanta without either parent in the same city as she is.

Thank you in advance.

The Spirit of a Child

My youngest daughter has infused me with new life. She is two years old now. God has totally used this baby to show me some things about myself. I turned inward before she arrived in our lives. I didn’t realize it then, but I was living for myself. I love my wife and my other children, but I had taken a very selfish posture in life. My walk with the Lord became stale. My sinful nature was the culprit at the center of my inward turning.

Now, with the help of a loving, and forgiving God, and a precious, little two-year old girl… I have re-discovered love, “the verb,” and turned back toward God.

But what is it about this baby that has been so spiritually life-changing to me?

I really thought about it.

And after really seeking the Lord, I believe He wanted to show me this…

Whenever our precious Gracie is awake and doing what toddlers do, there are four active behaviors that define her daily life:

1. She loves. Her survival is based on this. She goes from me to mommy, from brother to sister, from Mamaw to Papaw, and at each stop she makes eye contact, gives hugs and kisses, and interacts with each person with affection. It is the spirit of my little girl… she loves.

2. She laughs. She goes out of her way to smile and laugh. She is so joyful. Sometimes, she laughs at things that aren’t very funny. And it seems she laughs at those things even louder and more pronounced than at other things. It’s because she makes a very real effort to seek out and find a laugh. And it is almost as contagious as her love.

3. She obeys. She wants to do anything she can to make mommy and daddy proud of her. She is very well-behaved, and for a two-year old that is unique! But she listens and does what is asked of her, in search of that beloved praise and affirmation from her parents.

4. She trusts. She blindly trusts us. She will be four or five steps above me on the stairway, and she’ll just jump down toward me without warning. She does this because she knows in her heart that her daddy will catch her without fail. And you can see both the thrill and the security in her face every time she does this. This trust has produced faith. And having faith is a huge part of a baby’s life… it’s a huge part of a Christian’s life.

Four profound characteristics…

Love, Laugh, Obey, and Trust.

“So now faith, hope and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”  1 Corinthians 13:13

“This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.” Psalm 118:24

“Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.” John 14:23

“Trust the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5, 6

Lord Jesus, thank You for making my adorable, little girl an example and an avenue for me to find my way back to You again. Amen.


“Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” Matthew 18:3, 4



Sleep is veiled with mystery. I often find myself thinking about it. The effects it has on my body. The effects it has on my mind. And the price that I pay with my body and mind when I don’t get enough of it. Then there are the spiritual questions regarding sleep. Do I receive supernatural contact when I am asleep? Do angels minister to me then? Does God, the Almighty Creator of everything speak to me there?

I need sleep right now. Is it a meeting with deity? Is it an oil change for my cerebral cortex? :yawn:


Welcome To My Web Log

I am DeepWaterWalker, and this is my web log. I consider myself to be a deep thinker. And the concept of publishing my thoughts on the world-wide web has intrigued me for a very long time. So, here I am. I have yet to decide whether this will be a public blog or a private one. As of now, it will be public. I have no preconceived notions about this process. I come into this a virgin to the blog world.

So, I begin my journey…
