This is the day

Today begins a brand new day for the rest of your life. The potential and power for you to achieve your greatest dream is totally wrapped up in this day. It is all a matter of how you look at this day that God has given to you. You can approach it in one of two ways - with fear or with faith!

Fear will lock you down and keep you sequestered in your past but faith steps beyond the barriers of yesterdays mistakes and into the promise of all God has in store. Others chose to see a giant in the story nestled within Israel's early history but David saw Goliath as an enemy that God could equip him to overcome.

Everything depends on how you look at it. You can choose to see the odds as something you cannot overcome or you can choose to see the size of your God that promises to be on your side.

I choose to believe that this is the day that the Lord has made - I will rejoice and be glad in it! My attitude determines my direction - I am going after it!

Enjoy your day.

I sit once again in one of my favorite places in all of the world - Starbucks! It seems that either the caffeine or the atmosphere provide me with a perspective on things that help me write a little bit better. In any case I thought of something earlier today as I was dropping my daughter off at her Kindergarten class.

As I was walking back to my car I overheard a young boy shout out to a girl, that he no doubt really has a crush on, and say to her - Miranda I can smell you from here! I about lost my Peanut Butter Capn Crunch!

Though it was humorous it got me to thinking how impacting our words really are. I can remember being in school as a child and hearing the words that were spoken about my arm and the hurt that I felt. It is amazing how cruel people can actually be.

The trouble with all of this is that it really never stops. I even received an email yesterday from someone who felt it in their best interest to cut me down throughout the email. And this person is a lot older than the 7 year old boy I heard this morning.

Why do we find it necessary to destroy people with our words? What pleasure does one get in tearing someone down no matter how justified they feel they are in doing it? When you really think about it, isn't it just a little childish?

How we speak to each other and how we even speak to ourselves holds such power.

I am encouraged today to watch how I speak to others. You never know what impact you are making.

Probably the reason we have been give 2 ears and only 1 mouth - listen before we speak.

I'm out!

Craving Community

I am sitting in one of my favorite places outside of being home with my family - Starbucks! I know, I know, overpriced coffee and all that but I love the vibe of these places. I primarily go to Starbucks to get myself thinking outside the box of the four walls of my office. Each time I spend time in a coffee shop like this, I walk away with a new understanding of people. People are my business so I want to know all that I can about them.

This morning as I sit here, I realized all over again how much people crave community. Every table except the one I am at and maybe one other has 2 or more people sitting at it. It comes back to the very beginning statement that God made concerning man - It is not good that man be alone. We need each other.

This leads me to the belief that this is the church's greatest hour. If we truly are the church that we are called to be our places of worship should reflect that atmosphere of community. There is something about being connected to others, it makes the journey of life a lot more enjoyable.

Sharing stories, encouraging one another, helping when there is a need - these are all a part of what community is all about. I am not interesting in living a life that is invisible! I want to reach out and connect with others, make a difference in their lives.

Take today and recognize that there are people around you! You are not the only one living on this planet. I know for some that is going to be hard to fathom but it is true. Help someone today - invest something in someone else's life. You would be surprised what a difference you can make.

Gotta roll - someone is asking for the empty chair at my table.

Still on the Journey

Been a long time since I have written a post in my blog. It is not that I haven’t had anything to write, it has just been a very busy but introspective time in my life. Through this time in my life, I have realized a few things that I thought I would put down in this blog and get some of your feedback on.

First of all - and this is not something new or profound but - life is really not all about the destination - IT IS ALL ABOUT THE JOURNEY. Don’t get me wrong, where we end up is very vital, but if all we think about is the destination we can never learn from the journey we are on. We will spend our time focusing so much on the end result instead of being shaped by the process of the journey. It is in the journey that we find what we are truly made up of and how we are being shaped for where we will end up.

Enjoy the journey - learn to live in the moment. Look around where you are and see what God is doing in the now. Get the vision of where He wants you to go but in your “going” pick up some tid bits of life and the lessons it brings along the way.

Just some thoughts that have been on my mind. I’ll write some more on the journey.

Still traveling

Familiar Sounds

I sit in my office on this Sunday morning hearing the familiar sounds of the praise team as they practice for our upcoming service. It is about 25 minutes till we will enter into the prayer room and there I will hear the familiar sounds of prayer as the saints of God began to call upon the Lord to help us in our services we are having today.

Familiar sounds - sounds I have grown up with - sounds that I am accustomed to. I trust that today during our worship and during our prayer and in our altar, I will hear the sounds of a brand new babe in Christ call out to the Creator of all things. I want to hear the sound of the lost find their way, the sound of an addict receive deliverance, the sound of a blind man see for the first time, the sound of deaf ears being unstopped, the sound of the wounded and broken recognize that He is the restorer of life.

These are the familiar sounds that I have come to love - sounds that I expect to hear each and every time we get together in the House of God. I trust that all over our nation and our world on this Sunday morning these will be the sounds we hear.

Let it rip!!

God Gave Me the Gift

Yesterday my 5 year old little girl Averie, helped me take out the trash. As we were heading back to the house I asked her if she wanted to race. As any good dad would do, I let her take the lead and acted as if I was not able to catch her. As we were running I shouted out to her - “Wow you are winning! How do you run so fast? ” Through gritted teeth and gasping breath she replied - GOD GAVE ME THE GIFT!!

I came into the house very amused as she confidently declared that the reason she was able to run so quickly was that God gave her the gift. I think that there is a lesson to learn in this story. How often do we go through life defeated by the obstacles that are in front of us, unsure if we can overcome challenges in our life. Maybe we ought to learn from a lesson from a 5 year old little girl who recognized that what she had, in her the ability to outpace her dad, was nothing short of a gift.

Each of us have been gifted by God. We have been gifted to be overcomers. We have been gifted to live abundantly - with purpose and passion. To accept each day and the opportunities that come with that day as gifts from God. You have been gifted - gifted to make an impact and gifted to make a difference in the people that are around you. Take the challenge, recognize where your strength comes from and RUN - run the race that is set before you - take advantage of every moment you have been given because God gave you the gift to do so.

Happy Running!!

Blogs Blogs Blogs

Everyone is blogging! It is the thing to do and it is quite therapeutic (I think, let me ask my counselor LOL). No seriouly blogging is something that is enjoyable and allows others to connect with what your church, your ministry or your family is up to. I subscribe to several different blogs that are out there. I read some of them every morning and some once a week. It gives me some perspective on what is transpiring with others.

I recently launched a brand new website that I would like you all to check out and give me some feedback on. On the website there is a link to my brand new blog. Please check that also and leave me some comments on what you think.

The website is and the blog can be accessed through that site or you can go straight to

Give me some feedback and if you have a blog you want me to check out, let me know.

It's Always A New Day

I awoke this morning with a very simple thought trying to work its way through the pre-caffeinated fog of my brain. The thought was simply this - Today is a brand new day!! WOW!! Powerful!! I know you are falling over with such amazement at the depth of that revelation but allow me to expound just a bit.

You see I cant do anything about yesterday! It is over, finished, done. But I do have the opportunity to do something with this day that I very much a part of right now. Some people spend their lives living with regrets about what they did yesterday. Our past can be so detrimental to the direction of our future. The key is to face each day as if it is your first day for the rest of your life. Face it with purpose, determination and focus. Face it with a clear understanding - This is the day that the Lord has made - I will rejoice and be glad in it.

Enjoy your day

God never ceases to amaze!!

Another productive powerful day @ The Point this past Sunday. (for more info go to It was jammed packed once again as God began to do an awesome work in both of our services.

It was great to have my parents with us yesterday. My father spoke in our Navigate class and did an exceptional job. His topic was "You got to have a song." It was great to have them @ The Point and let them have the opportunity to see what God is doing.

In our Sunday Morning Experience service the place was jammed from side to side and front to back. As we began to worship I was amazed at the people God is working in. Lives are being transformed. That is what this is all about. Letting the power of God work in someone's life. It has always been something that amazes me about God. His ability to turn an addict into an usher, a suicidal teenager into a worship leader, a homeless individual into a preacher!! I love it!

As the preaching went forth about "Standing Faith" God began to do His thing once again. If you run out of things to pray - pray for The Point that God will give us His direction over the next few months.

For His Cause,

Enjoyed the time but glad to be home!

Last week we attended the final camp meeting for the state of California and Nevada. It was a combined camp for the Western District and the newly formed So Cal District. I must say that this was one the best camps I have attended in many years. Every service had a powerful touch from God upon it and we saw many receive the Baptism of the Holy Ghost and many others receive miracles in their lives.

I am thankful for these times when the people of God can get together. There is nothing better than fellowship and enjoying friends that you only get to see a couple of times a year. Having friends that are of like mind and like faith is important in this journey. We are all busy - that is life! And to have those moments in your life where you can worship, pray and have fun with fellow ministers and families makes the busy times of life worth going through.

I thank God for the fellowship! I thank God for friends that will pray and seek God with me for the things that I am facing in my life and ministry.

Many say that camps are the things of the past - Bologna - They are a part of who we are and they need to continue! They are a source of encouragement, strength, friendships, and fellowship. This is just my 2 cents on the matter.

I thank God for these moments in my life.

Enjoying the journey,

I Hope He Will Never Forget

Yesterday, July 29th, was my son Carson's 12th birthday. I am blessed to have such a great young man to call a son. I wanted to do something special for him, something that he would never forget. To be honest with you this was a tough one for me. I am a big sap when it comes to my kids and milestones in their life.

I decided to take him to Ruth's Chris steakhouse along with his Youth Pastor, David McGovern and our Children's Pastor Mike Gonzales. I read a letter that I had written to Carson then I had each of them speak to my son and it was incredible. I was a wreck emotionally as these two anointed men spoke into my sons life.

I know that this will be a moment that Carson will never forget. The impact that this evening had in his life will forever be etched in his mind and mine. Children are a gift from God. I am thankful God gave me such a great gift.

A proud dad,

Sunday Morning Thoughts

I am sitting in my office on this Sunday morning so desperate for God to rattle the cages so to speak. I once heard a statement - I'm hungry for an outpour and I am desperate for a downpour! That is my feelings this morning. God has done so many remarkable things for his people here at The Point. It is amazing to see His hand at work in the lives of families and individuals. Yet there is something in me that is not quite satisfied.

I want everything that God has in store for us as His people. The power, the anointing, the glory of His presence are things that I am so hungry and desperate for. Show us your glory Lord is my prayer on this Sunday morning. Rain down on us and shower us with what you have for us and most of all CHANGE US GOD!!

Just some thoughts

I really am trying!!

I am trying to be a better blogger. I think that I get writers block sometimes and cannot seem to figure out what to write. But I am trying and that should count for something! It reminds me of what I read this morning in the Book of Romans. Paul seems to be having the same issues - not about writing but about life.

He goes on in Chapter 6 how grace is not a license to sin but it is an overcoming force to help you not sin. He makes statements like - "Shall we continue in sin that grace may abound?" God forbid!! Grace is not given for you and I to freely continue to sin, it is given so that we may have power over sin - "how shall we, that are dead to sin, live any longer therein?"

He discusses this subject for a few verses then in Chapter 7 he begins to discuss the struggle against sin that humanity faces. He opens up a segment of his life for all to see and reveals that - I really am trying to do right, but I find that it is difficult at times. In my mind I know the right thing to do but in my body I do not do it.

Wow what an insight - we all will constantly struggle against the flesh - it is part of human nature. But God gives us the victory through the power of the Spirit. Keep your head up, your knees in the altar, your eyes fixed on Jesus, and your heart open to his way and He will give you the power to overcome.

Just some thoughts - not sure they make sense - but hey I am trying!!
Have a great day

Jr. Camp Update

I just returned from the So Cal District Jr. Camp and wow what a time. I stand amazed at how God pours out His Spirit at these camps. Close to 50 kids received the Baptism of the Holy Ghost. It was awesome.

On the last night I stood in the altar and watched as over 200 kids were dancing, lost in the spirit, receiving victory and just enjoying the presence of the Lord. It got me to thinking. There is nothing like the experience of the Holy Ghost. I was raised on this experience. You cannot tell me it is not real.

In the culture and society in which we live - we need the power of the Holy Ghost like never before. It transforms lives. I am so thankful that what I experienced at camps as a kid is still being experienced today.

Thank God for dedicated men and women that take the time to see that the kids of this generation can experience the power of the Spirit of God at work in their lives.

I'll write more later.
Enjoying the experience!!
