Blogging in 2010…

Posted: January 17, 2010 in General

As you might recall (although it has been a while), I like to have a theme for each day. I did pretty well for a while there by bloggin’ every day with some guidance in topic. So I decided to change it up slightly as we have entered the new year. As this week begins I look forward to following these guided topics on the different days of the week. I hope you will follow along. If you have a topic let me know and I will do my best to cover it…I am simple minded and I am not sure why anyone reads this, but believe me I have fun with it.

Mindful Mondays

Topic Tuesdays

Would You Rather? Wednesdays

Would You Rather? Wednesday!

Would you rather have an arranged marriage or never marry?
Would you rather being a cleaning person or work at McDonalds?
Would you rather miss Christmas for a year or miss your birthday for a year?
Would you get fired from a job or be evicted?
Would you rather be dumped or be the dumper?
Would you rather have a missing finger or an extra toe?
Would you rather find true love or be given $10 million dollars?

Elevate will kick off this coming week and I am excited to see what the Lord is going to do through some of our topical series. The first four weeks we will be talking about Jesus versus…

Week 1 – Jesus versus Idols

Week 2 – Jesus versus World Religions

Week 3 – Jesus versus Satan

Week 4 – Jesus versus Religious Leaders

I’m stoked about learning more about how Jesus is victorious against all of these oppositions. I am also stoked about people coming to the service station afterwards to go through some of the resources and interactive activities.

As the weeks progress I will post some highlights and photos.

It never fails…every time I click on Leslie’s blog,, I am inspired! What a warrior she is in this battle with Breast Cancer. But what an even greater warrior she is as she puts on the full armor of the Lord in this battle!

Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.

“Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having girded your waist with truth, having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; above all, taking the shield of faith with which you will be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one.

“And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God; praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, being watchful to this end with all perseverance and supplication for all the saints….”

Ephesians 6:10-18

The victory is already HIS and she gives Him the credit for every ROUND of the fight (treatments). Check out her blog and be iNSPIRED too!
