Many today are mistaking zeal, desire, concern and compassion for a call to hit the road. God calls Evangelists and sends them through His channels. Find your place by waiting on God firmly planted in your local church. He will send you out when and if He truly wants you to go. Sometimes the best fit are outreaches right there in the local body from member to member." from Lens message on Excellence in Ministry part 1

Here is a look back to 2010 on Waltons Mountain in VA from the back yard of the real families home. This is where the Hamners (Waltons) lived. Be blessed by this brief devotion and tour.
Going back to a clip from 2009 from Hole In The Wall Wyoming where Butch and Sundance hid out from the Law. Angie and I hope to get back to Wyoming again very soon. Be Blessed as you watch this video.
When you truly get a hold of the grace of God, I guarantee you, it sets you free from sin, not free to sin. You’ll wind up living holier accidentally than you ever have on purpose. You’ll serve God out of love stricter and stronger than you ever would have out of legalism. Jesus said you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free (John 8:32). It’s not truth that sets you free; it’s the truth you know that sets you free. But before you can know it, you’ve got to hear it. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God (Rom. 10:17).

Check out this article by Len Paxton on Revival and Prayer..... New book coming soon... http://lensthoughts.wordpress.com/2013/09/09/prayer-precedes-revival-part-1-by-len-paxton/http://lensthoughts.wordpress.com/2013/09/09/prayer-precedes-revival-part-1-by-len-paxton/
Our Trials Sometimes it is very difficult to maintain our courage during times of trial. Satan loves to discourage us and to put fear on us. Let none of us imagine that we will have smooth sailing merely because we follow Christ. Trials will come to each believer.God allows us to go through so that we can get to. We must often go through something in order to get to something. We grow spiritually as we encounter trials and learn to trust the Lord through them. Allow me to share some things that I have learned about trials. 1-Trials and hardships can be used by God to build our character and purify our faith. [1Peter 1:3-7] 2-The trials that we go through can be used of God to help us have compassion on others and comfort them in their times of trial. [2 Cor. 1:3-7] 3-If we keep our eyes on Jesus and look for the eternal perspective, trials and tough times are survivable. [2 Cor. 4:7-18] 4- Our trials often cause us to examine ourselves and allows our foundation to be tested. If we are grounded firmly in the Lord Jesus Christ, we can make it through with our faith intact. [ Luke 6:47-49] 5-No matter what we are called upon to go through, no matter how hard or difficult: Jesus is always with us in the storms of life. We are never outside His watchful eye, His caring and compassionate embrace, and His holy, awesome, abiding presence. [Mark 4:35-41] and [ Matt. 28:20b] 6-God gives us hope right at the time when our heart is so very, very troubled. We can have the peace of Jesus in the midst of our greatest trials. [ John 14:1-7] 7- We must endure and persevere through our trials. Read the following verses of Scripture. Luke 8:15 James 1:2-4 Hebrews 12: 1-3 2 Timothy 4:7-8 In the times we are living in I believe that trials are going to increase, but so will our peace. Calamity is coming but so is our Lord. Dark days are truly ahead, but so is the finish line. As Christians, we should not fear what lies ahead but we must put our trust in the Lord.

Here are some things to remember when interceding for others: A) We must be open to the way the Holy Spirit wants us to pray for the person. B) Our heart needs to be in tune with heart of God. C) God has unlimited resources, the person has a need, and our prayers form the bridge. D) See others through Jesus eyes as you identify with the person and not just the need. E) Desire the Highest Good for the person, first of all that they remain in the center of Gods will. F) If possible, You be available to meet the persons need, not just pray about it…. G) Continue praying for the person persevering even if you do not see immediate results……
Mine enemies in the Council, more numerous than were Christ’s, are found amongst the bishops, and doctors, and also amongst the princes of this age, and the Pharisees. But I confide myself entirely to Almighty God my Savior; I hope, therefore, he will grant my ardent prayer, and put prudence and wisdom in my mouth, that I may be able to resist them; that he may bestow on me his Holy Spirit to fortify me in the truth; so that the gates of hell shall not be able to lead me from it, and that I may face, with an intrepid heart, temptation, imprisonment, and the sufferings of a cruel death. –John Huss, Before his arrival at the Council of Constance
