Lord our God! His name is Jesus!

As I sit here tonight, I am very thankful that God brings people into my life at the exact time I need them. This past week Josh and Kari Ortega blessed us with their presence for 9 days. At first Michelle and I were worried about what we would do with them (entertain them). We are in the middle of some serious spiritual battles, we didn't know if we even wanted anyone in our house again for at-least another two years. as we have done with God so many times, we swallowed our struggle and welcomed Josh and Kari into our home. We were weary and tired but we looked forward to a time being challenged by them and their trust in Jesus (they just spent 2 months in India living out of suit cases, washing their clothes in a bucket all to tell people about the incredible Jesus we serve). What we didn't expect was to be used to bless them.

Josh and Kari had just come off of 2 months in India, 3 months training on the Big Island. They have been away from their home in Ohio for 5 months and they were beat. We all kept saying at the end of the week how much they looked revived and refreshed. God used our home and family to revive two tired and worn servants of His.

However, we were blessed by them also. It was so good to sit around and hear what God is doing in the world. To see that we are not alone in this journey and have such great friends like them and the Killins just overwhelms me. How much must God love us to bless us even when we didn't even know we needed to spend time with the Ortegas. It was so good to be open and honest about struggles I was having in the ministry with a fellow brother!

Last Sunday we introduced a song to our group called "Lord Our God" which I believe was introduced at the Passion Conference. Let me leave you with its words and pray that your heart will rise to God's in praise!

"The Lord Our God" Kristian Stanfill

Promise Maker, Promise Keeper
You finish what You begin
Our provision through the desert
You see it through to the end
You see it through to the end

The Lord Our God is ever Faithful
Never changing through the ages
From this darkness You will lead us
and forever we will say
You're the Lord our God

In the silence, in the waiting
Still we can know You are good
All Your plans are for Your glory
Yes we can know You are good
Yes we can know You are good

The Lord Our God is ever Faithful
Never changing through the ages
From the Darkness You will lead us
and forever we will say
You're the Lord our God

So we wont move without You, we wont move without You
You're the light of all and all that we need (4x)

The Lord Our God is ever Faithful
Never Changing through the ages
From this darkness You will lead us
and forever we will say
You're the Lord Our Lord

And forever we will say, You're the Lord Our God
And forever we will say, You're the Lord Our God

THE LORD OUR GOD!

To reach culture have we gone too far in embracing culture?

Today is a new day and a new part of our journey. So what's next?

I should not attempt to walk in Christ apart from "It is Finished"
