9:52.

Successful movie night: Toy Story. great movie, in Spanish to boot.

Yes Leaha, I DID buy that camera. I've been impressed with it, especially the fish-eye lens function that it has. (what????? when did cameras become like that?)

It's been a great two weeks. (already???) yes. too much sickness, it is a bit discouraging, but our bodies will adjust. and God is a healer! and he will heal me from my cough/laryngitis. Lost it mid-worship on Sunday night, kinda interesting..... anyways, something to pray about. I love to worship the Lord in song, and I haven't been able to. Better by Sunday, that's what we're praying!

The group is doing super. What a group of all-stars. I don't want to make a long list of everything we're involved with, just know that there's a lot, a lot of new ministry venues, and everything is going well and getting better.

Definitely a high-lite for me in the week is Tuesday nights. It's where I take off and go to the church for a leadership meeting. It's not really a meeting, it's more a night for leaders to refresh themselves in the Lord and be ministered to. We start off with a call to prayer and about a half hour of everyone just individually praying and worshiping the Lord. It is a wonderful time. This last week I was a bit under the weather and feeling tired, but I beat my body into submission and went to refresh my spirit. And I'm so glad I did! I am learning to hear the Lord better (hallelujah!) and I received some interesting revelation on scepters and Jesus with a scepter, and me with a scepter and it was definitely a theme throughout the night in my spirit. Yesterday, I spent some time looking up scepters in the Bible and discovered that Jesus is called a scepter in Numbers and again in a few other places, and my understanding is deepening.

praying for a good night sleep tonight....maybe I'll dream about the Lord.

I'm thinking about buying a camera tomorrow; one of those little purse ones. that way i could be a little more diligent in capturing life.

I'm thinking about getting on a plane at 6am on Saturday morning and flying away to Guatemala. and being in an atmosphere of faith. for TWO MONTHS. (hallelujah).

I'm thinking about faith and belief. and how it is folly to the world, and even to many in the church. I read a quote recently that said, "Faith is imagining something that is not as though it were."

Faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

I am working on having more faith. For there is much to have faith for.

I told a team member today that I cannot have one foot in the supernatural and one foot out. I want to move and operate in the supernatural. There is much to learn. I want to learn to free people in Christ, because He came to bring freedom and there are many who love the Lord and live for the Lord, but do not have freedom in the Lord. I will learn to operate in that. I am either crazy for Jesus, and look totally different from this world, and am dead to the world and the chains of it and alive in Christ, or I am not.

I watched a recent testimony by Heidi Baker and in one experience that she had with the Lord, she was filled with the fire of God, raging all through her, so intense was it that she cried out, "Lord! I am going to die! I am going to die!" and she was serious. She thought she was going to die.

And she heard the Lord say, "Good, I want you dead, so that I can raise you up in my power."

The same power that conquered the grave lives in me, lives in me.
