I made a commitment long ago to allow God veto power over my preaching, no matter how thoroughly I had prepared. On this particular Sunday, God used that power. As I prayed before the worship service, God began speaking to me about preaching something other than what I had prepared. Initially, I dismissed the Spirit's impression. But, it remained, and I heeded God's call. I had been praying through materials I have collected in a special prayer notebook that's all about me and my ministry. I had never shared much out of that notebook until this day. It contains prayers I've written, quotes I've collected, and Scripture God has used to give me direction along my path. In this message, I share a portion of that journey, recorded in that prayer notebook. I hope you'll be blessed. I don't know what agenda God was pursuing. I just know my part was to be faithful.

I love to preach and teach, and it's exciting to share God's Word with you here. I pray that you'll not only listen but do something different with life after encountering God.
I'd love to preach for your church family or speak at a special event, retreat, conference, or workshop. The buttons below explain what I can do and how to take the next steps. It's a privilege to encourage and challenge God's people.
We have discovered a flaw in the recording process used to produce the message recordings on the site. The messages will play properly when listened to through earphones (stereo), but not when played through a phone or tablet speaker (monophonic). We are working to correct all recordings 11/17/2013 and earlier. Later recordings do not have this problem. This note will disappear when the problem is corrected. Thanks for your understanding.
