I can lead(direct, coordinate, provide spiritual direction, etc…) a House of Prayer*.
It was an afternoon after getting home from work, and my mom was fixing dinner. It was before there was ever the opportunity(a little more than a year ago). Looking back at it now, I felt like it reverberated in my mind like a gunshot or the impact of a nice swing of a baseball bat. Not in a bad feeling, instead it infuses such power and strength to fuel the inner man to step forward in the direction God is calling. You gotta love impressions from the Holy Spirit. They are so sweet but yet so powerful. It is even more powerful when you speak it out!
*A House of Prayer, for those who might be unfamiliar with it, is an organization committed to worship and prayer continually before God. There are many being raised up all over the globe at this moment, and many operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
I have been going back to some childhood classic cereals. Plus it is fun to joke with my mom how Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Apple Jacks have lower calories than her “healthy” cereal. I bought Apple Jacks and this came in the box:
The Indiana Jones Adventure Spoon! It even lights up! Kinda cool? At least it was amusing at about 6:30am yesterday. Needless to say it might be cooler than the movie, at least from what I am hearing and reading.

Lately I have just felt like putting some random things up here. Here is a powerful quote from a book that I am reading about the spiritual life:
Living things grow in visible creation. Acorns develop into oak trees, tadpoles into frogs, babies into adult men and women. We are so convinced that things slowly mature to a fullness of life that if we were to notice that a three-foot sapling suddenly stopped growing, we would immediately and without any need for reasoning about it conclude that something had gone wrong…Many of us do not understand to be applicable on the supernatural level what we fully grasp on the natural level. We are not alarmed about truncated spiritual development. Yet Jesus said that He came not only that we might have life but also that we might have it abundantly, and St. Paul insisted that we are to lives so intensely that we are to be filled with the utter fullness of God and nothing less.*
Interesting thought, makes me want to inspect myself for stunted spiritual growth.
*Thomas Dubay, Fire Within, (San Francisco: Ignatius Press, 1989), p 73.
Of course, I just want to reveal what I have been up to for the last 6 months, partially because some people that read this blog aren’t necessarily in my life every day, but also because I want to give an excuse for why I haven’t been posting much. Besides working at my church, I took on a par-time job at my school as well going to school full-time. Honestly, the job was more than just part-time. God was very gracious to me in letting me be a part of a creation of a House of Prayer. The one at school is called the Gordon Lindsay House of Prayer. You can go here to our humble site to learn more about it. I am a part-time coordinator for the HOP and it is a lot of fun as I feel it is what has called me to in this time in my life. There has been a lot of changes in my life in the last 6 months and I will attempt to share. Here is video highlights from the HOP:
Have you ever gotten to the point to where music just does not satisfy the soul? I am sitting here looking at my iTunes playlist and nothing absolutely nothing interests me. Trust me, I have a good selection of prophetic worship music. And yet, I don’t want to hear it. I don’t want to hear anything else. I just want to hear His voice. I want to hear the voice of my Beloved and find joy in only that. It has been awhile and I can’t stand it.
Here is a link to an older post: Breakfast I am reposting it because a friend enjoyed it so much. I must say that I was in rare creative form. It doesn’t happen that often, but it was one of my favorites! For those who are new readers, welcome and enjoy!
