Thursday October 6, 2011

During the day I didn’t get much not at all so I felt frustrated. I have to start disciplining myself to go to bed earlier so I can get up earlier and be more productive in the morning. I did spend some time with the Lord and I wrote one entry for my blog however I wish I had done a lot more. I cannot believe that I haven’t even started working on my newsletter yet. I do apologize and my goal is to start working on it this weekend.

In the evening I went to the Nigerian international church for their Thursday church meeting. Today they had a prayer meeting. It was great to spend time with God in prayer with the church because the people who attend this church have a real heart for prayer. Unfortunately I could not focus very well this evening while I was at church. I don’t know why my mind just kept wandering. I really need to ask God to help me to be more focus at church. I am thankful though for the new friends that I have been making since I started going to this church.

After I got back from church I got a bite to eat and watched this week’s episode of the TV show “The Biggest Loser”. This is my third season watching this show and I really like it a lot because it is such an inspiring and life changing show for the contestants that go onto this show. This TV show is not just about losing weight but it also helps the contestants deal with certain issues in their lives that need to be dealt with. I’m sure this show is an inspiration to many people who watch it.

Update on Pastor Youcef in Iran:

Last week hardly anyone heard of Pastor Youcef and his story but now due to many people’s efforts around the world their voice is being heard. His case has been broadcast throughout major international media, and American leaders have taken aggressive steps to put pressure on Iran to release Pastor Youcef. We need to continue to keep him and his family in our prayers because they need our continual prayers. Please don’t forget to sign the petition if you haven’t already on the American Center for Law and Justice Website.

Here is the full report on the American Center for Law and Justice Website:

There is also link on the American Center for Law and Justice website on their radio archive that is put up today with one of their staff interviewing Franklin Graham supporting Pastor Youcef. It is well worth the listen. Here is the link:  http://aclj.org/radio-shows

This is such a beautiful song of how God is for us and not against us.

The song is called “You are for Me” by Kari Jobe.
