Love is not deceived.
Love recognizes evil.
Love has discernment.
Love is not taken by surprise.
Love is not naive.
Love is fearless.
Love is not me Centered ...Love is God centered
Love knows who to trust.
& one of my favorites,
Love is not stupid.
God is love.
There is a Two Edged Sword that I Swing When I Pray and Speak God's Word .I am not Afraid of Either Edge :) for I Know my Father's Heart ,it is Not one or the other as some would Lead you to Believe :) It is Absulutly Bith or None at All !
For Our Good and for Hus Glory !!!

Enjoy this Song from Ed Bruce
George Jones and Doris ...
Music always has a way of reminding me of my Life . A Song can Take me to the Place where I 1st heard It , I remember where I was and where I was standing the 1st Time I heard Johnny Cash Sing Ring of Fire on the radio , I was 3 years old standing in the Living room of our house in Minden La. 1963. My mind was Drawn to the very Visual songs … I could see that Ring of Fire … and even a 3 yr old Knows Fire is Hot !
I still recall where I was the 1st time I heard George Jones Sing the Race is On in Phoenix Az. 1964 .. I could see the Race .. the Cars … the guy getting passed at the Finish Line . My Dad was a George Fan since I before I was born … by the way if You Had to add the Jones … You weren’t Really Country anyway J.
I came to the Lord in 1970 , the 4th grade , I have Been Praying for George every Since !
Even as a Kid I Knew he Needed Help ,
For many Years I watched the ups and downs of his life till finally he seemed to get it together .
I was reading his book when he told of a gradual leaving off of drinking ,George said “people seem to think if I got religion but no I never experienced a conversion experience “
I just started Praying Harder .. the Worst thing you can is “fix” your Problem without Jesus !
Which Brings us to the day He had the bad Accident …. We stopped in to see Doris , a neighbor , good friend , wonderfully funny lady who went to church with us . She was so upset about the accident and if he would Live through it .Well latter that night she had to go to the ER and by the time we got there she had Passed away … it was so shocking ,sad, and to me senseless … she had a precious 12 year old granddaughter to raise . Late that night I asked God Why She had died and George had made it through …
God said “She was Ready he is Not “
Latter I have heard George tell the Story of waking up in hospital Asking for Vestal Goodman to come and Lead him to Jesus !
I about jumped through the roof !
So All I really wanted to say is This morning God Called and George was Ready , and they Went Home Together !
Never Stop Praying for People you Love
May God Bless You !
This is from church Sunday night ,
There’s a Bible verse where Jesus told the disciples, He said, “Blessed are you because you have seen things that prophets and kings desired to see and didn’t see, and yet you’ve seen.” Amen?
You have seen things that will transform the life and the heart of any person that sees them and understands them and will come. Okay? You’ve seen Jesus. You’ve seen the truth. You’ve seen the resurrection and the life. You’re life, though not perfect, has been changed and being transformed because you have seen. You know to be true what somebody else considers to be a fairy tale or a fantasy. Amen?
Can you imagine the difference that Jesus could have made to Timothy McVeigh? You know who that is, don’t you? Most people know who that is. Can you imagine the difference of Jesus, the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the light of life, all … the name above all names, Wonderful Savior, Mighty God, Prince of Peace … if he would have ran into Jesus? How many children would be alive and would be having children of their own right now? Amen?
That’s just one person , you say . If they choose Jesus, good for them; and if they don’t, they just go to hell … it won’t affect anybody else. That is insanity! I don’t know how long these two boys had been in the country. You hear all different numbers … eight, ten, twelve years … However long it’s been, isn’t it a shame they didn’t run across Jesus? Isn’t it a shame … that one out of the two didn’t run into Jesus? Amen?
You can take it and go with person after person after person. We’ll just go to Hitler. What if somebody … and we’ll use all three of the people we’ve said … four putting Hitler in with it … what if somebody would have got them into Vacation Bible School? Oh, there’s nothing really to that , you may say but Hitler meeting Jesus Could have stopped World War II! Look at the difference the power of God can make in somebody’s life. Look at the difference it’s making in yours. You say, “Look what a mess I’ve got” but where would you be without Him?! Amen?
What if one of them would have wondered into a Youth Group somewhere, when somebody was doing more than showing videos? Talking about whatever the current events were and teaching them about skateboards or some old silly crap to relate to them. They had serious issues. They wanted to kill and steal and destroy. Because the devil only comes to kill, steal and destroy.
They’re such good people. The Bible says there are no good people.
Speaker: No, not one.
Speaker 1: There are none. They’ll find God on their own. The Bible says there’s none that even seek after God. Amen?
Yet, He’s available to anybody. Amen? It’s so important that we not be muzzeled. Amen? And that almost rhymes with Muslim, doesn’t it? It almost rhymes with that. I didn’t say it was that, but it almost rhymes with that. That we not allow ourselves to be muzzled into sharing the thing that can protect your children and your grandchildren and your great-grandchildren, can affect the whole outcome of people’s lives. Because we still speak the truth of what somebody else thinks is a fairy tale and somebody else thinks is a fantasy and somebody else thinks is insanity, we know it to be the absolute truth … that Jesus died for me and He died for you.
If you’ll let Him in, He’ll change your life. You may not be a Mother Teresa but you won’t be a suicide bomber either! Amen? Amen! I’m serious. Amen!
May God Bless You !
This I picture that came to me today ... Called the Rough Waters of Revival ..... I thought of the Adventure of going Down River with God ... And I saw rocks in the waters to Avoid !
God's Mighty River is Flowing but there are rocks to paddle Around ... Little rocks of discouragement ... Disappointment ....
Trials .... People ...or
Personal Taste ...
But the 2 Big ones the Lord Said to Beware of .. Are ..
... Deception ....
Ride the Flow of God's
Holy Spirit ... But don't get hung up in the Deceptions that are beneath the surface ... ( of the Revival )
The enemy always tries to Disrupt your Boat ... By what you can't See with Your Eyes ...
It looks like a Small thing but ... It goes down very Deep ..( rocks)
The Other one the enemy loves to Use in Contradiction ....
It is the Opposite of Deception ...
Well Almost ...:)
It is Something the Looks Really Large .... Something in the Revival ... That seems to Go Against the Flow .. Personal .. Flaws ... Habits ... Aggravations ...Immaturity ....
The Things that are only on the Surface ....don't let the devil get you out of the Boat !
How Do You Do That ?
Keep Your Eyes on the River !
And Follow Your Guide !
Happy Sailing !
Love to all Len
May God Bless You !
One day I was at work and I saw a Quick vision of Heaven.
I saw a very bright light behind the throne of God. It was so bright that all else was dark , I could see a silhouette of the thrown itself, and as I watched I saw a very athletic young woman come and stand before the thrown .
She looked like she was in better shape than someone in the Olympics .
Written across the bottom of the scene were the words "Mary's Mother in Heaven "
She was a friends mom and I ministered at her funeral .
She had been through a long battle with sickness and did not have her legs anymore .
Yet here she was in heaven young , whole , fit , looking better than I had ever seen her in my life .
I was amazed to see her this way, yet my heart cried ,"Why show me Mary's mom?
If .. I'm going to see heaven I want to see my boy "
Instantly a boy of about three came skipping out and took her hand .I knew it was my son , not a baby any more but he appeared to be his earthly age ..
I tell you seeing Heaven will blow you away ..
It is way cool !!
Just having a visual of him well alive happy !
Being himself ( a little guy )
Growing up ... in Heaven
It was then that the seed for this book was first planted in my heart!
Things I Learned from this vision.
He was growing up ....I had him frozen in time . (and myself as well!)
He was alive ... living life ... I was not !
He was excited .. skipping around God's thrown ....
I was in year 3 of a 10 year depression ! I was grieving my loss not his!
May God Bless You !
What to do During the Waiting Process .
Remember to Praise God , Now , Before the Next Door Opens !
It will put you in Position to Move or Freely Move Through the Open Door :)
You see Praising God is Not Doing Nothing ... Praising God is the Most Important Thing You Can Do ....
During the Wait !
Love to All Len
