    What Does Answered Prayer Look Like?

    Maybe there's something or someone you've been praying for recently and it just feels like the line between you and God got disconnected. Wow have I been there!When that happens I sometimes wonder if I did something wrong. I remember feeling that way with my mom. Was my prayer not good enough? God, are you mad at me? Can you even hear me?Well, I recently came across this post on Facebook that brought my heart some much needed comfort, maybe it'll do the same for you."Wait what? God doesn't always heal? I disagree! Prayers for healing are the safest prayers we can pray because God always says 'yes'. Now...let's define 'yes'. If he heals you here, your healing is temporary. It's still good and amazing, but it will not last forever. You will get sick again. You will die. I've never met a 2,000 year old Christian! But if he releases you from your mortal body, and heals you in THAT way, then, you are healed forever! No more sickness, no more pain, no more tears. The problem isn't, sometimes God heals and sometimes he doesn't, the problem is, we've begun to cherish 'temporary healing' over 'eternal healing' so much so, we now dismiss eternal healing as any type of healing at all."

    Hurt in life is not an "if", but a "when." Typically, when I experience hurt, I just want to find the quickest route from point A to point B to get rid of those feelings as quick as I possibly can.I say this from experience: Take the time to heal. You and I don't have control over our hurt so why try and rush through it? Allow God to work out your hurt and your healing on his timeline even when it doesn't match your timeline. You can trust him with this.

    This school teacher started the "I Do Too!" movement to get her 1st grade students to socialize and I may just have to join in!She had every student stand up and one at a time they would say what the favorite color was, or their favorite food, or their favorite animal and if there was another student who had that thing in common, they'd yell out "I Do Too!" and would run over to the student who just shared. What ensued was pure joy: laughing, running around, talking with one another, friendships being formed. Don't you just love it? I do too!

    One of my favorite quotes is "Always preach the Gospel, and when necessary, use words."I used to get together with a group of friends to play cards and we had a blast together. We'd talk, we'd swap stories as we played, and we all happened to be Christians except for one of our friends, Jerry. Every time we got together, he would just sit there and soak up everything we said and eventually, Jerry started asking us questions about our faith. He said he loved that we didn't preach at him or hang out with him just to try to convert him. He said he wanted to know more about this faith thing.Well yesterday, out of the blue, I got a message from Jerry. He reached out to say that God had called him to not only to the faith, but ministry and that he got his degree as a Christian counselor

I knew it was going to take a while but it took longer because the car directly in front of me wasn't paying attention. 1 car length. 2 car lengths. Still no movement. I wanted to give the horn a little tap but I decided against it and luckily he looked up and moved forward. Less than a minute later, same thing. The cars in front of him we're moving but he just sat there. Patience Sonny, patience. Don't tap your horn. He eventually moved and we all caught up.Then I get a text and decided to check it and respond, by the time I looked up, that car that was in front me? 3 car lengths ahead! I couldn't help but blow the horn at myself. I see what you did there, God.

    The next phase of our KCBI Summer of Service, DFW Shoe Drive, is starting soon and I gotta be honest, this hits differently for me. Our goal with the DFW Shoe drive is to make sure no child has to worry about what they're going to have on their feet for the beginning of the school year and I understand this because I was one of those kids. Growing up in a single parent home in West Virginia, I know my mom did the best she could but we just didn't have money for new shoes. I remember my shoes had holes in the sole so I would put newspaper and cardboard in them to keep the bottom of my feet from getting torn up. I know how that feels.But I thank God for bringing me from that to where I am today to encourage you to help children right here in DFW focus on just being kids.

    So my wife and I are a month away from celebrating our 26th anniversary, and a lot of the credit goes to something Mrs. Delfyette taught me early in our marriage called "Active Responsibility"."Hey hon all the dishes are dirty…" then wash them.  "Hon, I'm hungry..." then cook. For a long time I practiced "passive responsibility." That's when you wait for your mate to tell you what to do and, according to a marriage therapist, it's one of the most frequent complaints she gets from wives about their husbands. Husbands, be your wife's partner. Serve her. Be an active responder.

    What Is A Rolling Blackout?

    Maybe you're new to North Texas and you're wondering "What are these rolling blackouts I'm hearing about?"First things first, you probably need to know who ERCOT is. ERCOT stands for the Electric Reliability Council of Texas and they operate the state's electric grid. When they see how much energy they have and how much is demand and that number is near the same, they start these things called Rolling Blackouts. This means cutting power in one part of the state to allow for the rest of the state to keep its own. After one city or region may have their power cut for a few hours, the power company will shift where the power has been limited to another city or region—hence the term “rolling.”

If I'm honest, it's rarely pretty.I came across a new poll that  found the average person does so more than three times a day.  That includes both insulting things you say, and insulting thoughts.  Even if you don't say it, it still counts. Unfortunately, women do it more than men.  The average guy insults himself three times a day, nearly 1,100 times a year but for women, that number is four times a day, which is almost 1,500 times a year.Friend, whether you believe it to be true or not, you are perfectly and wonderfully made.
