Hospital Trip

Yesterday afternoon, my wife Loaise was not well and was taken to the hospital. We stayed until midnight. Pray for her to feel better.

The Big Lie

Rebellion against God promises a feeling of life, but it never delivers. Instead, it brings shame. If this is you, go to the one who bore our shame. He is the source of life. Jesus will forgive you and restore you today.

Got My Attention – May 22

Here are the five blog entries that most grabbed my attention during the past week.

  1. Advise from a Christian Pedophile: “I do believe that both homosexuality and pedophilia are disordered desires which are not consciously chosen and must be faced by many people who wish they would go away.  
  2. Who’s Killing our Congregation?: After the first generation of a congregation’s life, an increasing number of not so hidden people may actually be trying to kill the congregation. Often they do not realize they are undermining its health.
  3. So.. You Wanna Design Your Own Apps? You want to create apps? Whether it's something basic like just appifying your blog or literally building something from the ground up, there are some pretty easy ways to create apps.
  4. Add a Free Forum to your Blogger Blog. I used this to install a forum on a free church website based on blogger. Very easy to do. I started putting a site together for Calvary Baptist in Denham Springs–Steve
  5. Scripture… As We Live It #209 Nevertheless Unfortunately, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away it would be much better if I could stay with you, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you But, since I cannot stay with you, I guess I will send the Helper, who will be almost as good as having me with you physically. (John 16:7 re-mix)

Ken Keathley on The Southern Baptist Convention

[The Southern Baptist Convention] is not a denomination in the traditional sense of the word. The SBC and its entities exist for the sole purpose of enabling Baptist churches to collectively obey the Great Commission. People without Christ are lost. They are not simply prospects. They are persons for whom Christ died.

I say Superhero

I just saved a corrupted excel file for my wife’s company. I had to search the internal .xml code for an error, and fix it. I can’t believe I was able to do that. Does that make me a nerd or a superhero?

Our Computer is Back

Our notebook is back from the shop. It took about a month to fix it seems. They lost the battery to it. Other than that it seems to be working great.

General Update

Our computer should be back by Tuesday, so blogging will resume next week. I went deaf again in my right ear, but my hearing with the cochlear implant continues to improve. Our church retreats were very special times and God did a work in many lives.

Best of Times, Worst of Times.

God is faithful and every evil and ill worked by man, devil, or nature can be repurposed to glorify God and expand the salvation Jesus has given.
