Clarence the chicken, sitting on my head.  Nice haircut eh?

Clarence the chicken, sitting on my head. Nice haircut eh?

Well it was bound to happen.  I have three teenagers now, all living under the same roof.  I am glad that I belive in God, otherwise I would be tearing my hair out.  Which, by the way, is still pretty thick.  I am hoping it sticks around for the time being.

Amy and I were so blessed today when we got an offereing from CLF.  It was very substantial and very encouraging to us.  Branching out to the new things we are doing is not easy, and is a big step of faith for us, but when you get blessed like this, well it makes it much easier to stay on target.  We are so thankful for the many people who love us.  So if you gave in the offerering at church, THANK YOU!  It will help us so much!  We appreciate it and are praying for you! Please pray for us since the new podcast starts on Sunday.  You can listen at http://www.takehimwithyou.com or download it on itunes.  Go to your itunes store, search for Rick Moyer and you will find the Take Him With You podcast.  Click on subscribe and it will automatically download on your itunes program.  There are two song and a promo up already.  Check them out!  Please pray about becoming a monthly invester in reaching people with an authentic voice of truth and faith.  Come check out the website.

 

Catherine turned 13 today and we spent most of the day together.  She went on errands with me this morning and helped me buy some supplies for the new business.  That was pretty fun.  We went to McDonalds for lunch at Walmart.  Went shopping, talked to a lot of folks, went to Staples and laughed a lot.  She is a great kid, turning into a woman.  Oh my.  I am really considering keeping a 2×4 at the door with a nail driven through it.  That way if any boys come calling, well, you get the picture. 

She had a lot of fun making her birthday cake with Amy.  Check it out.  Yeah, it’s flip flops.  Isn’t it cute?

We invited Grandma Ena and Catherine’s friend Sarah Wood to come to dinner at Happy Teriyaki.  It was good.  I am stuffed, and so is everyone else.  Like my hat?

I know she doesn’t like this picture, but I do believe I have a beautiful daughter.  I am blessed by her humor, fun and love for Jesus.

Ok, it’s official.

go check out the new site, subscribe to itunes and let’s change the world!

my son turns 19

Posted: January 24, 2009 in Cool Stuff just for you

So my son turns nineteen today.  Am I that old?  Wow.

I think it’s pretty cool to be a father.  My kids haven’t really given me any problems per say.  They are good kids.  I am pretty amazed at the talent and creativity I see in Nathan.  He has a bright future ahead of him as he serves God in whatever he winds up doing.

Here’s to 19 years!

When God speaks, we should obey.  That is a simple idea, but not as simple to apply.

Faith isn’t always knowing exactly how it is going to work, just that it is because God spoke to our heart.  Faith is letting the details emmerge as we walk down the path that we are told.  The little things start to get clearer as we walk down the path.

I got my master business license today and my federal EIN number.  Pretty cool.  I meet tomorrow with my friend who is working with me on the new website and by next week something should be up for you to see.  You will dig it.

God is good and serving him is quite an adventure.  A good one I might add.

The sky is the limit.

Often times we limit oursleves because of the way we see things.  It’s so easy to fear the future.  None of us really know what tomorrow holds except for God.  If we have faith in the fact that he knows what is best for us then we should trust that whatever comes our way we will be able to handle if we are connected to God.   You know?

So what would you do if you weren’t afraid?

The sky is the limit when you fly with Jesus.

Philippians 4

12I know how to be humble, and I know how to prosper. In each and every situation I have learned the secret of being full and of going hungry, of having too much and of having too little. 13I can do all things through him[e] who strengthens me.

I heard a message yesterday that simply blew me away.  It was most definitely from God.- by that I mean the timing was just too coincidental to be random.    At least it spoke to me.

Genesis 11
27 This is the genealogy of Terah: Terah begot Abram, Nahor, and Haran. Haran begot Lot. 28 And Haran died before his father Terah in his native land, in Ur of the Chaldeans. 29 Then Abram and Nahor took wives: the name of Abram’s wife was Sarai, and the name of Nahor’s wife, Milcah, the daughter of Haran the father of Milcah and the father of Iscah. 30 But Sarai was barren; she had no child.
31 And Terah took his son Abram and his grandson Lot, the son of Haran, and his daughter-in-law Sarai, his son Abram’s wife, and they went out with them from Ur of the Chaldeans to go to the land of Canaan; and they came to Haran and dwelt there. 32 So the days of Terah were two hundred and five years, and Terah died in Haran.

I listened as a friend of mine read from chapter 11 and 12 of Genesis.  It’s the part where we find out about Abraham’s family.  We find that Terah was his dad and he had two brothers.  I could go into a long disertation here, but I won’t.  Suffice it to say, a lot of stuff happens from the end of 11 and the very beginning of 12.  Boiling it down we see that the Dad, Terah, set out for the promise land and along the way stopped short of it.  It caused his kids to not have the opportunities for success, it was selfish of him and all sorts of other things I could say right here.  Terah never entered the promise land, he stopped short of it, then at the age of around 75, God spoke to Abram and said this:

1 Now the LORD had said to Abram:

“Get out of your country,
From your family
And from your father’s house,
To a land that I will show you.

Abram actual obeyed the Lord, even though it was very uncomfortable for him.  He had to leave the familiar in order to find the promise of God.

2 I will make you a great nation;
I will bless you
And make your name great;
And you shall be a blessing.

What I got from this was that when we follow after God we run into a blessing.  When we don’t we are stressed and strained.  I am personally looking forward to the blessings the Lord has for my family.  Our whole purpose in life is to preach the Gospel and to love on people.  If we can do this with the love of God in our hearts then we have achieved God’s purpose.  It all starts thought with being obedient to the calling upon our lives.

3 I will bless those who bless you,
And I will curse him who curses you;
And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”

I’m not saying that I am Abram, please don’t misunderstand me here.  I am saying though that Abram is a great example of a man that could have stayed in the comfortable, could have settled for second best, but he would have never gone on to be the father of many nations.  I want to be all that God has called me to be.  How about you?  I think not only will it be a blessing to me, but to my family, and those people that my life touches.

Is there a ministry you are supposed to help with?  Something maybe you should start?  There are many opportunities if we are open to change.

So where are you at?  Are you obeying the voice of God in your life?  Are there things that are stopping you up from entering  your promise land?  If so, join me and make a declaration with God.  I WILL GO WHERE YOU SEND ME AND DO WHAT YOU TELL ME!

That is a good prayer no matter where we are at.
