Even the animals are celebrating 4th July!
Happy birthday Usa! For me the picture is so much more than a firework. At age 18 I was able to watch the 4th July fireworks from this spot together with my high school friends. It was beyond spectacular. All because a High School teacher believed in his students. So he took over 200 of us out of our small town of Wenatchee to the capital. For most of us it was the first time we had ever flown in a plane, or been to the capital. But for all of us, we realised how spectacular the gift of life & adventure is. Thanks to one very special teacher who invested & sacrificed way beyond what anyone expected or thought was normal. This teacher is in heaven now, having fought valiantly against cancer some years ago. This teacher believed in me so much more then I believed in myself. He was my music teacher, and we called him “Sarge”. Early in his career he served in the Marines , and then spent the rest of his life believing & teaching music to teenagers. I will forever be grateful to ya Sarge. #seeyouinheaven #iremember #happyfourthofjuly #lightafirework #iwillcelebrateinengland
There are no final goodbyes as a Christian. Today we had the privilege of honouring Andy Jowett at his thanksgiving service. Andy died after a valiant fight with cancer. Today many friends & family gathered @lifechurchhome to pay tribute. But it made me realise that as a Christian, there are no final goodbyes. We will see him again in heaven. Andy had a remarkable faith & died having a real peace & trust in God. Very precious to be with his family today whom we love dearly. Please keep his wife and young son in your prayers. #gonetoosoon #seeyouinheaven
Stuck. This is the view at end of my road when a truck driver could not get his truck around the bend at sty lane. So he had to back all the way down a steep hill & into our drive and is now attempting a three point turn, which is more like a 60 point turn. The driver claims he simply followed his GPS. Fascinating to see him blame the road, the gps, the postman who is trying to direct him, the trees, the stone wall and even a few bystanders like me. It reminds me when you are on an unfamiliar & new path, you better check your source of instruction and make sure it’s correct. This driver is wishing he did that. After 45 minutes he is unstuck and set off without so much as a thank you to the two men who directed traffic and helped him. It strikes me that when stuck in a situation, circumstance or level, it is important to thank the people who help us to get unstuck and out of the jam. Even more important is to make sure you have a good guide to arrive at the destination intended as quickly and safely as possible. God has given us tools to navigate our journey like His word and His spirit. But occasionally, unforeseen circumstances mean we may get stuck. Let’s be the help that others need to get unstuck & remember to appreciate the help when we need it ourselves so that we can get to the very best that God has for each of us. #breakthrough #unstuck #askfordirectionsnexttime
Although sun is shining outside, the writing deadline means that I must be inside! It will all be worth it in end. I keep saying to myself! One hour to go. #discipline #loveyourdeadlines
Walking with my boy. What I remember most was being with him. The conversation had faded as we focused on the road ahead. Although it was full of stones, and occasionally he stumbled I was there to catch him. What I remember most was just being together. That what made this a special day. Whatever you are facing, know this, God is with you. He is our father. He walks beside you, & will help you if you stumble. Ps 23 “…He leads me in paths of righteousness for His names sake. Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil because you are with me.” #heiswithme #hewillcatchusifwefall #Godismyfather #timetostepout #noholdingback #nofear
Jake’s got the whole stylin thing going on. He’s effortless at the cool monochrome look. #dogfashion #happymonday #itsadogslife #nocatsallowed
Well done to the students of the year for first, second year and the part time of the #LIFECHURCHCOLLEGE of our students have been outstanding but it is a real privilege to see these three people honoured for their outstanding contribution. Each one incredible in their own right. Precious to have celebrated their achievement with their family & friends last night. #privilege #honour #futurenow
Celebrating the exceptional graduating Life Church College of 2015! Tonight was such an amazing night to honour the achievements of every single individual who is graduating. So proud of every one! #legacy #LIFECHURCHCOLLEGE
Starting the day with the truth that God is for us, is fuel for our souls and hope for the future. It shoots adrenaline into our souls, & brings the faith we need to shift any mountain of discontent or adversity. Whatever your situation, you have a loving God who is a good father. He is for you! #simpletruth #hope #fatherGod
It’s time to rescue, to reach to, do all we can for the one needs Life. How can we be comfortable with so many lives hanging in the balance? It’s time for courage and bold action not lethargy and ease. Its time to be activated by love, not asleep with indifference. Sunday is going to be huge @lifechurchhome across all campuses. Leeds, Belfast & Warsaw. Bring your world. #herecomesthechurch
Standing outside our new outreach and student building after an outstanding first ever session with the LC College students with Craig, is one of our College students who is about to graduate on Sunday. Just a few years ago he was a bouncer outside this same building that was then one of the busiest student bars in the area. Craig caused a lot of trouble back in the day. But now he’s saved, forgiven & ready to help rescue a generation instead of seeing people be destroyed. His life is an awesome example of what God can do. I didn’t know Craig was a bouncer at this location until after he got it. Just another sign of how much God is confirming this modern day miracle that is making me more determined then ever to reach the emerging generation for Christ. #miracleinourtime #amazing #taketheland #herecomesthechurch
Such a privilege to be able to tour our incredible Life Church College 2015 class on my last teaching session this morning at our brand new outreach & student Center! This is the first ever thing @lifechurchhome has done in this location. It is so ironic that this very spot was used to grow drugs & illegal substances. Ironic that the premises that was used to ensnare & abuse will now be used to redeem & restore a generation! #breakthrough #LIFECHURCHCOLLEGE #rescue #turnaroundGod
That feeling when a choice is required between sleep or pumping iron. #adogslife
