Social Media & #thebookofjames

James 1:19 says to be “quick to listen and slow to speak”

Proverbs 12:23 says, “the heart of fools blurts out folly.”

The bible is clear. We are to be careful with our words.

Slow to speak. Quick to listen. And only fools blurt out folly.

With that fresh on your mind, please turn your thoughts to Social Media.

Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and many more outlets on the web provide countless opportunities for us to share our thoughts.

Few of us have ever had such a large and captive audience. I mean, the average person has the ability to reach hundreds, even thousands of readers a day!

What a huge responsibility!

Question for Christians: Are we applying God‘s Word to our online lives? Or are we feeling immune to, or even hidden from it?

How many foolish things do I blurt out to the masses? Am I really quick to listen and slow to speak?

James 3:8 says it directly, “no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison.”

I wonder what James would have to say about taming our tweets.


Ringing Hands

This photo is an accurate depiction of my life right now. 

I’m ringing my hands a lot. I feel alone, and distressed. Everywhere I turn there are major issues and concerns. A heavy weight of burden is laying over my spirit, and I am overwhelmed.

        Finances | Family unrest | Wife’s job | Health | Global catastrophes

It’s difficult to find faith at times like this. It’s hard to see beyond the stress and fix my gaze on the Lord. But I know it’s what I must do. It’s what I am doing.

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry  about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t there more to life than food and more to the body than clothing? …” – Matthew 6:25-30

What helps you look beyond the stress to see the Lord?

Daybreak Baptist Church

Glory To God Forever Steve Fee

All Creatures Of Our God And King – LCMS Gathering Band

God Of This City – Bluetree

Amazing Grace My Chains Are Gone – Chris Tomlin

Hiding Place – Jared Anderson

A lot of our women were out at the coast on a Women’s Retreat this weekend, including my wife LeAnn, who normally co-leads the worship services with me. So today was a bit different than usual. But it turned out great! It was a dynamic set, and even though we had fewer people in church today, due to the retreat, the worship was awesome.

We introduced a new song, Hiding Place by the Desperation Band and Jared Anderson. I think the church really liked it. Very nice addition to our rotation!

What music did you guys worship with this morning? Please comment below!

Our Easter service was A-MA-ZING!

This was our first time singing My Savior Lives, and it was HIGH ENERGY! I loved that song! And we combined Worthy Is The Lamb and Rev Song into a power medley that sent our church into a deep attitude of worship. I was so touched by the whole service. Everything went perfectly. Praise God!

Our Pastor’s message was also amazing! We are so blessed to have such wise and dynamic teaching every Sunday.
