Okay, This Is NOT On “My Bucket List!”

Standard

Skydiving…

Wearing thongs…

Running for political office…

Living in the past, or on past glories…

Backpacking around the country…

BASE jumping…

Being a groupie of a famous person…

Walking a tightrope, like our friend, Bello the Clown…

Being stuck in an air-conditioning vent…

Falling into a mine shaft…

Working again for my least favorite principal…

Being made to eat anything slimy…

Oh, I’m sure I could go on and on…

But, I love that many of you do want to do these things!

And I’ll pray for your “Bucket List” to be fulfilled…

But, I refuse to live without JOY everyday…

So, I do have a Prayer List…

And here’s what’s on it:

I do want to…

Write a book…

And have it published…

See my son successful in life, especially in God’s eyes…

See him married to a Godly girl, and have a family that serves the Lord…

To live healthy, so I can see my grandchildren…

And teach them to love God…

Live a peaceful life with the Lord…

But, know how to battle spiritual warfare when necessary!

Impact for Christ, all kids, young adults, and adults…

Minister and speak where God leads…

Encourage our drama team to outreach far and wide with God’s direction…

Travel to Italy to see relatives still living there…

Go to Israel to see where Jesus walked…

Serve the Lord on Earth, ’til I get to Heaven to hear…

“…well done, good and faithful servant…”

Mathew 25:23

Leave a legacy of love and encouragement…

To all those…

I’ve been blessed to come into contact with in my life on Earth…

In Jesus Name I pray…

Amen!

satan, I refuse…

Standard

I’m reading Kingdom Man:  Every Man’s Destiny, Every Woman’s Dream by Dr. Tony Evans…

What a powerful book!

Here’s what I learned from it…

satan I refuse…

To ever compare my life with anyone else’s…

To ever live beneath my purpose…

To ever think of my son as anything less than a Kingdom Man in the making…

To ever lower my standard of conduct to the world’s level..

To ever listen to enemy lies about me, or my family…

To ever let you have control of our thoughts, actions, or dreams…

To ever give up hope that my purpose is far greater than any pain to pursue it…

To ever let you convince me to give in to exhaustion…(Dr. Evans says, “Exhaustion is only a word!”)

To ever be swayed by the majority…If I’m in the minority on a matter, so be it!

To ever allow you to dethrone my ruler-JESUS!  He rules me, not you!

To ever teach “religion” without teaching about the divine authority of Christ…

To ever seek the world’s answer to problems…Only my God’s opinion matters to me…

To ever be governed by anything, or anyone…

To ever be only a fan of Jesus, but rather a devoted follower instead!

To ever be content to sit on the sidelines…but  rather, to always live to represent my King Jesus!

To ever allow anyone, or anything, to overrule God’s authority in my life…especially you!

To ever place myself under anyone’s rule, except for my Lord God’s absolute rule…

To ever lose sight of Jesus Christ’s absolute prototype for my life…I was made to reflect Him only!

To ever disobey God, my Father in any way…

To ever be out of alignment with God & His Kingdom commandments…

“Submit yourselves, then, to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.”

James 4:7

“Jesus turned and said to Peter, ‘Get behind me, satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the things of God, but the things of men.'”

Matthew 16:23
