every tuesday we, as an executive staff, have our executive staff meeting. we begin every meeting with a time of prayer. during this time we give God praise for who He is and for allowing us the privilege of working for Him. we also ask for His guidance and for a specific word to us as leaders of this body. every week, without fail, God speaks to us. we go around the table and individually we share the word God gives to us. sometimes we don’t understand exactly how the word we’ve been given applies to us until we lay all these words on the table and when we put those words together we find a beautiful whisper from the lips of our daddy.
going forward i will be sharing these “whispers” weekly. -pastor allen

“‘Not by might nor by power but by my Spirit.’ I am coming to set up residence among you. No longer just visiting but inhabiting. You will be led by Me and others will see Me in you. My hand is upon you. Don’t fear. Let Me be God and everything else you’ve ever experienced will pale in comparison to what I will do.”
Lord, you are blessing us with the great gift of your presence. Please help us to hold up our end of the equation. We truly desire to follow your leading.
God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
