God is in control

There's one thing that can be said for sure about Living Stone Bible Church: God is in control. Every step of the way it has been completely clear that this is God's church. This is not my church. I feel like I am just along for the ride.

He has hand-picked the people that He wanted involved. And, I am continually amazed at how marvelously the group's gifts and talents fit together.

My prayer for this church is that God's will would be realized - whatever that may be. I have no vision for how big or small the church will be. I can't see 5 years ahead. Honestly, I can't even see 1 year ahead. And yet, I have an unmatched peace about the future.

I find myself with each day becoming more and more focused on preparing to preach ... and preach well. Having taught the Bible in a Bible study for years I have experienced the power of the Word. It has changed me forever. And, more importantly God has used me to change others. God's Word has the power to save eternally.

In Christ,
