We talked on monday evening about Matthew 5 & Jesus’ comments about us being the light of the world.  Here’s the passage:

14 “You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. 16 In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.

I love this passage. I am reading through the bible chronologically and this was Monday morning’s scripture.  We are the light of the world.  Really?  Sometimes I just don’t feel it.  Sometimes it’s hard to even grasp that there is this light in me that shines.  But it does. Brightly.  I am in the unique position to be able to force it to shine.  Not everyone has that ability. I get to be on-stage and make this light shine.  Sometimes, some nights, some shows, it’s harder to make that light shine.  There are just days when you don’t think you’re the light.  Jesus, the light inside us, makes us shine.  The closer we are to Him, the brighter the light will shine. I’ve seen it.  I’ve noticed it.  As i’ve been really focused on Him, His word, His awesomeness over the last few months, He shines.  Even in the darkness, He shines.  There is no darkness in Him, only light.  We are meant to be light in this very dark world.  Today. Be the light.  Shine.  Don’t let anything get in the way of your light.  I know.  There’s life. There’s hurt. There’s pain.  But there’s also hope.  There’s also help.  Ask for help.  Ask Jesus for help.  Ask people you know to pray with you.  Ask people you know to help you turn the light back on or make it brighter. We need to be the light.  We need to be the hope.

Thanks for reading.  Thanks for following.  Thanks for sharing & caring about what we do.  We can’t do this without you.

Worship in the Adirondacks

9.8.16 – So happy to be a part of this festival next Saturday, 9/17.  We’ll be playing a set on Saturday afternoon and then our band will back up Paul Baloche for his set in the evening and then Jeremy Camp finishes out the night.  This will be a GREAT day of worship.  Join us.

Leading worship next weekend…

IMG_51401.14.16 – Happy new year!  Thanks for reading this note. A real quick update.  We are leading worship for a bunch of high school kids up in Lake Champion, NY next week.  We are SO looking forward to this.  The last time we were up there we were with a bunch of junior high kids and it was amazing.  To be able to help shape these kids faith, to be able to lead them in worship & worship with them is just incredible.  Please pray for us, pray that God would move in these kids even before they get there.  Pray that their hearts would be opened as they walk into the sessions and as they sing with us.  Thanks guys, so amazing to have you with us.

This coming weekend would be impossible without our monthly supporters.  Lake Champion isn’t close & the camp has a very low budget.  This weekend was going to cost us money but because of our monthly supporters we’re able to meet every gas, toll, wear & tear and any other need that comes up.  So if you’re a monthly supporter, you are helping to change lives in Jesus name this weekend.  I can’t thank you enough for that.  If you want to become a monthly supporter, head over to the SUPPORT page on this site or just CLICK HERE and click on get access.  Great incentives to join us that are described on that page.

We’ll give you updates as we go through the weekend on our Facebook page.  CLICK HERE to like that page and get the updates.  Until then, thanks!

5.20.15 – The Weekly Walk – Prayer.

5.20.15 – The Weekly Walk – Prayer.

Hey everyone, hope your weeks have been going well. we’ve been playing some fantastic shows & it’s been great speaking to all of you before & after the shows.  one thing i’m hearing is that there is a lot of hurting going on in this world and in our area.  families are in trouble, people are in pain, sickness abounds, people are losing loved ones, general feelings of loneliness & despair.

i’ve been praying for each and every one of the prayer requests that have been coming in & i want you to continue to send them along.  God calls us to stand together as a church body & support each other.  We can do that through email, social media & through joining together at our shows and praying.  I’m going to make a commitment to take time each and every day to pray for every request that comes through my inbox.

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (ESV) “Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.

I’ll take this moment in this blog to direct you to another blog, the Desiring God blog.  Click HERE for an article on prayer.

It’s hard sometimes to pray because we don’t feel as though God is listening or if He is, we don’t feel like He’s answering.

Isaiah 41:10 – Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Keep praying, keep believing.  I’m praying with you.  My band is praying with you.  Be encouraged.  God is with us.
