Wow, it has been a while since I’ve had a chance to post a Thankful Thursday. What with traveling and recovery time, it just has gotten away from me. But here are the three things I’m thankful for this week:
1. I am so thankful that about 6 years ago God miraculously and instantly healed me of the horrible migraines that I had been suffering from. It happened through the simple prayers of a little group of sweet brothers and sisters in Christ gathered around me at a camp outside of Tecate, Mexico and prayed for the pain to end. I have been migraine-free ever since, and rarely even get a headache anymore. Thank you, Jesus! (more…)
Because it is Good Friday, I found myself listening to this song this morning. It is a beautiful rendition of How Great Thou Art sung by Carrie Underwood and Vince Gill on national television. She is so clearly worshiping as she performs, and you can see on the faces of those listening that it touches their hearts.
How great you are, God!
And when I think,
That God, His Son not sparing;
Sent Him to die,
I scarce can take it in;
That on the Cross,
My burden gladly bearing,
He bled and died
To take away my sin. (more…)
You’ve been hearing me talk about GameTime a lot lately. The event is now over and was awesome!
The sports and cheer camps, along with a kid zone, happened in the afternoon. It was such a joy to watch the athletes working with the kids – they had so much fun! Our counselors were excited to be there, and did a great job connecting with the kids during the Gospel presentation. There were about 72 decisions for Christ that afternoon!
The evening portion of the event took place in Neyland Stadium. It rained for just a couple of minutes at the beginning of the evening, but it quickly dissipated after everyone prayed. There was a local brother-sister group (Charles & Taylor) that sang first to get things started. Chris Walker and Nick Reveiz, both UT football players, gave very stirring testimonies of what Jesus has done in their lives. Superchick followed with a great performance – you could tell that they were excited to be there. Chaplain Roger Woods got on the stage for a few minutes during the offering time. (more…)
