Matthew 14:27-29 KJV:
27 But straightway Jesus spake unto them, saying, Be of good cheer; it is I; be not afraid. 28 And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me come unto thee on the water. 29 And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus.
2 Timothy 1:6 KJV:
Wherefore I put thee in remembrance that thou stir up the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.
Weekend Songs: I Surrender, Come to the Altar
Do you ever daydream about hitting the game winning home run? Catching or throwing the touchdown pass? A hole in one on the golf course? Catching the big fish? Building a business?
Have you ever day dreamed about God using you to heal the sick? Build a small group of prayer warriors? Help plant a church? Lead a neighbor to Christ? I believe that God wants to do great things thru us! I said “Great things!” Why not? Why not me? Why not you? We sing “The same power that raised Jesus from the dead lives in me.” But do we really believe in what we sing?
We must continually stir up the gift of the Holy Spirit which is in us. Jesus said I go to the father but I will send you the comforter, the Holy Spirit. Do you believe it? Regardless of the stormy circumstances and situations of our lives, Jesus is calling us to come alongside of him and get out of the boat! Will you get off the sidelines and jump out of the boat and say “I SURRENDER.”
Give it ALL to Jesus; your finances, your marriages, your families, your jobs, addictions, hurts, hang ups and habits.
Say yes to Jesus, say I SURRENDER.

Isaiah 25:4a NIV:
You have been a refuge for the helpless, a refuge for the needy in his distress, a shelter from the storm and a shade from the heat.
Romans 15:13 NIV:
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Weekend Song: Confidence by Sanctus Real
We all go through various storms in our lives. And God goes with us through the storms, bringing us safely to the other side where His light and love shine brightly. God is our refuge and hope. God speaks to me through music. He has spoken to me through our theme song, which is “Confidence,” by Sanctus Real. God loves us no matter what we are going through; He is with us, His love is beyond our comprehension and He chooses to use the broken. The message of hope outshines the clouds and storms we go through. It’s not about the storms – it’s about God’s presence, His deliverance, His faithfulness and what He teaches us through our storms. Let’s explore this journey together. I look forward to sharing this with you!
For the team, I really want us to speak life to each other, love each other and edify one another.
