Big Ups For City Rescue Mission!

OK I admit….I failed to post a blog yesterday!But today I want to give a huge shout out for City Rescue Mission here in Jacksovnille. It has been extremely cold here. It’s almost as if we skipped Fall and move directly into Winter. The Florida Times- Union highlighted the significant work of CRM in a way that really made me glad to see that there are many groups out their doing phenomenal work for those less fortunate. While I’m sure that there are many others wotking in the same capacity, CRM really stood out..

Jesus said in Matthew 25:35 For I was hungry, and you fed me. I was thirsty, and you gave me a drink. I was a stranger, and you invited me into your home.

This was the living Gospel on display. Keep up the good work CRM! To read the article click the link below. I’ve also posted this to my Facebook page.

Lay Aside The Weight

In light of everything that’s taking place in our economy. I think it’s really important that we self-examine to see if there is any place in our lives that need trimming. It’s very easy to point fingers at high earning CEOs with disgust as their companies crumble faster that Graham crackers in a new box. Yet, if we are honest with ourselves we very well would find waste in our own lives. Much of this is nothing more than exra stuff that’s not needed.Since ¬†we are called to be the light of the world we have a mandate to ensure that there’s nothing that would prevent us from being just that. This weight, that diminishes the light, could be too much unhealthy eating, unnecessary shopping, self-pride, alcohol, dishonesty, illegal drugs, illicit sex, you name it- whatever it is. There is no little sin vs. big sin. Ask God to give you the strength to let it GO! Our words have power. So much so that with our tongue we can control life and death…check it out in the book of Proverbs!

Speak no more weights in your life. I know that’s why I’m doing. January- why wait for a New Year’s resolution. Get rid of it now.
That’s my story….and I’m sticking with it. What’s yours?

Imagine

When I imagine what It’s My Jax will look like this is what I see. Imagine….
…a place where you are welcomed and where warm friendly people greet you and help you find your way.

Imagine…
…a place where you and your children can develop lasting friendships and feel like part of a close family.

Imagine…
…a place where you can be encouraged and find answers to your deepest questions.

… a place where the teachings are relevant and sound and the music is meaningful and uplifting.

Imagine…
…a place where you can go be accepted just as you are.

…a place where you have an¬†opportunity to develop your gifts and talents.

You don’t have to imagine anymore…..Launching September 2009.
