He rides a skateboard every day down the sidewalk where my children play

so asked him to come to church one day

he smiled and he told me "i'll try"

I gave him a tract to read today

he shyly smiled and walked away

the next time I saw him he told me "i prayed that prayer written on the insde"

His friends and him
skate down the stairs
 of the church across the way from me.

On sunday I saw the congregants stare at the "ruffians"  blocking the way

But no one asked them to come inside.

I knew they were wrong.

Why one of them's saved! There hair might looks wierd but for them our lord gave that great commission compel them to come. (I feel I am the only one.)

"The Last Block"

When my daughter was a little girl, I used to ask her to pick up her toys.  She would slowly, and I do mean s-l-o-w-l-y, put the toys up one by one. 
Then, she would breathe a little sigh, and stop.
It was always the same....I'd say, "honey, you forgot a block".
She would always leave just ONE block on the floor.
And then, she wouldn't pick it up!  She'd let it lay there.

The Lord spoke to my heart that I was doing the very same thing.

How many times (don't count) does the Lord give us something to do, and we just

The High Places

In scripture, there is a lot of mention about "high places".  I kept running into this term a lot, in the word, during my study time.  I asked the Lord to show me more about this.

 Here's what He showed me...The High Places were altars that the people prayed from, which were originally consecrated to the enemy.  Back in Old Testament times, the children of Israel were frequently rescued from idolotry.  After they repented, they would pray to the true God, but often from the pagan altars.

They were worshipping the true God, even though the framework was wrong.

Something clicked in my spirit when I read this:  I believe God is calling us to change our ways and our habits.
For me, this means becoming more structured in what I do, and finishing what I start.

My high place is disorganization
What's yours?
