One Night with the King: Media Monday

The final portion of the 2006 film, based on the book of Esther. I’m using it in class today as we finish our month-long study of Esther, Mordecai, Xerxes, and Haman.

Enjoy!

And if you get a chance read the book. It’s a great story of faith!

Mordecai told Esther that she was called for “such a time as this.”

Where are you being called?

Live Like That: Weekend Praise

Each weekend holds endless possibilities. And, we determine how to embrace it. I don’t know what your weekend looks like, but I challenge you, as God challenges me, to live in a way that reveals God’s love to everyone you encounter. Be careful how you live

This Sidewalk Prophets song can inspire us today.

Ask yourself the question, “Was I love?”

May you Live Like That today and always!

Live Like That

by Sidewalk Prophets

Sometimes I think
What will people say of me
When I’m only just a memory
When I’m home where my soul belongs

Was I love
When no one else would show up
Was I Jesus to the least of us
Was my worship more than just a song

I want to live like that
And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You

If love is who I am
Then this is where I’ll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that
I want to live like that

Am I proof
That You are who you say You are
That grace can really change our heart
Do I live like Your love is true

People pass
And even if they don’t know my name
Is there evidence that I’ve been changed
When they see me, do they see You

I want to live like that
And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You

If love is who I am
Then this is where I’ll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that
I want to live like that

I want to show the world the love You gave for me
I’m longing for the world to know the glory of the King

I want to live like that
And give it all I have
So that everything I say and do
Points to You

If love is who I am
Then this is where I’ll stand
Recklessly abandoned
Never holding back

I want to live like that
I want to live like that
I want to live like that

Tough Week, Day Two

I’m having one of those weeks. It’s not that things are going terribly wrong. It’s that things are terribly busy. I have a lot to do! My regular hectic schedule plus two special classes plus picking up the duties of a colleague who’s at a conference. I’m not complaining. I am happy to be where I am. It’s just a lot!

Week 7 Peace

May we experience hope, joy, and peace this week!

Prayer focus: Those who are busy! (i.e. pray for me!)
