Last week my oldest son, Josh, sent me a quote from Jim Cymbala. He said:
"One day I told the Lord that I would rather die than merely tread water throughout my career in the ministry...always preaching about the power of the Word and the Spirit, but never seeing it. I abhorred the thought of just having more church services. I hungered for God to break through in our lives and ministry."
I have thought a lot about that over the last week. One of my New Year's resolutions was to have more passion about life and my ministry. And has the Lord ever answered my heart-cry. Anyone who was in the men's class last night will know what I am referring to. Wow! Is the Lord ever giving me incredible opportunities to minister! And I am loving it!
Beverly and I thank Him every day for directing us to Decatur, Texas. It don't get no better than this.
Cowboy nation: Are you excited to learn that Wade Phillips will be the next coach? Wow. Looks like more of the same. As long as we have Jerry Jones as an owner and the stadium is full, we Cowboy fans are destined to mediocrity.
