I’m a licensed minister with GCMF and
I’ve also spent many weeks over the years at Christian Retreat with
Kids-A-Fame Camp and
YEX Youth Camp!
Christian Retreat in Bradenton, FL, is certainly…
“an oasis of spiritual refreshment!”
They host conferences, retreats, camping, events, family church, and more…
The facility includes the conference center and church, with hotel style lodging, a cafeteria,
meeting rooms, a gymnasium, a youth center, and outdoor recreation.
As soon as you turn onto Glory Way Boulevard,
you sense the peace that permeates Christian Retreat
located on the banks of the beautiful Manatee River in East Manatee County.
Towering oaks dripping with Spanish moss shade the 110-acre property
that is home to year-round residents, overnight guests, and groups
who use the conference center to host events, meetings and camps.
My dryer stopped drying the day before we were leaving for vacation…
I washed a load of clothes…
And the dryer did it’s thing of sounding like it was a normal laundry day…
It flipped the clothes around and around and around…
But when I checked, the clothes were as cold as ice…
It worked, but it didn’t heat up…
Duh, we need the heat to dry clothes…
Now it’s just a large, metal box with a door…
Taking up space in my laundry room…
Useless to me…
For the purpose it was intended!!
So my son had to cart our laundry basket over to a loving neighbor’s house…
So we wouldn’t need to leave the last load I washed…
Sopping wet over vacation!
It certainly held us up from leaving on time…
When one of our appliances wasn’t doing its job!
Thank God my neighbor’s dryer did have heat!!
And she was gracious enough to let us use some of it!
Well, when we got back from vacation…
The Sears repairman came…
Opened up the back of the dryer…
Saw immediately what was wrong…
Went to his truck outside to get a part…
And in about 5 minutes…
Inserted a brand new heating element…
In our 12 year-old dryer!!
Don’t just take up space…
You were intended to advance the Kingdom of God…
So do what you’re called to do!

Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from Heaven
and filled the whole house where they were sitting.
They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire
that separated and came to rest on each of them.
All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit
and began to speak in other tongues
as the Spirit enabled them.”
“…because through Christ Jesus
the law of the Spirit who gives life has set youfree
from the law of sin and death.
For what the law was powerless to do
because it was weakened by the flesh,
God did by sending His own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh
to be a sin offering.
And so He condemned sin in the flesh,
in order that the righteous requirement of the law might be fully met in us,
who do not live according to the flesh
but according to the Spirit.”
are not in the realm of the flesh
but are in the realm of the Spirit,
if indeed the Spirit of God lives in you.
And if anyone does not have the Spirit of Christ,
they do not belong to Christ.”
Interview with Joel Parisen:Newworldson
What has God been teaching you lately?
Joel: “How to not be a lip-service Christian. How to talk less and to let my life be my message, which is incredibly hard to do. How to not say one thing and be doing another. Some people struggle with surrender and trusting that God has a plan; that part’s been easy for me. My problem is knowing that in my partnership with Him, I have work to do too. It’s not all sit back and enjoy the ride.”
Behind the Song:
“We were coming to the end of a full day in the studio when I decided to sit down at the piano to unwind. I just started playing these chords when Mark came over and said, ‘We’re recording that tomorrow.’ And that was that. I wrote my lyrics and Josh wrote his right on the spot.
