What to Do When the Crisis Comes

I began a series this morning on the Old Testament book of Habakkuk.  This Minor Prophet book (because of its length, not its message) is absolutely incredible.  I think this could be one of the most meaningful series I’ve done at Crosspointe.  Why? Because trouble is the common denominator in the Christian experience.  Everyone will face times of difficulty and crisis at one point or another.  The question is not, “Will the crisis come?” But, “How do I respond when the crisis comes?”

God did a great work at Crosspointe today and this series has just begun.  I think we’d be amazed if we really knew how many people were facing a crisis at any given moment in our church.  The good news is, God is not unaware, unconcerned or uninterested; and He is capable to deal with the situation better than we ever could on our own! 

Vacation Time!

That’s right, this is our first family vacation this year. In fact, this is the first time I’ve been back to Georgia since Christmas. Our family drove down Wednesday night to Elko and visited with Stephanie’s family for a while. The boys love hanging out in Elko; riding the four-wheeler, playing with the cats, looking at the horses and hanging out with Mema, Papa and Papa Wayne. We are now in Jackson, GA at my parent’s new place on the lake and it has been great so far. It’s nice to have some time to unwind, hang out with the family and play in the lake.

I had a the privilege today to preach in both morning services at Rock Springs Church in Milner, GA. It was an incredible time and this is certainly an incredible church. Rock Springs is an amazing story and an awesome testimony to the hand of God. This church is in a town with the population of 500 people and they average over 2,000 in worship.

While I had a great time at Rock Springs, I really missed my folks today at Crosspointe. I got a report that we had a great day, but I sure did miss being there; I can’t wait to be back next Sunday. I found out today that I am more comfortable preaching at Crosspointe than anywhere else! That’s a great feeling.

I sure do love a week at the lake. (By the way…I am NOT a beach person. The lake is definitely where it’s at for me!) This is a great time to chill out, relax, catch some rays, wake-board a little, hang out with my family and take a break. So, if you don’t catch me blogging much this week, you’ll know why!
