1. I arrived at the movie theatre just a few minutes after 7 AM on this glorious Sunday morning here in Homestead Florida, but that wasn’t early enough for my good friend from The Keys – Tom. He was already hard at work and planning a major upgrade of ‘Noah’s Ark’ (where we store a majority of our setup material for the main lobby). The Ark got a fresh new set of wheels this morning and an alignment to boot ! It’s good to go for another 3 miles.
2. Pastor Travis led us on a journey through Chapter 2 of Habakkuk within the Old Testament. When we’re in ‘the dip’ we need to listen, write, and wait. We must always realize that God’s delays are not his denials. His goodness comes in His time. We must remain patient for it.
1 I will climb up to my watchtower and stand at my guardpost. There I will wait to see what the LORD says and how he will answer my complaint.
The LORD’s Second Reply

3 This vision is for a future time. It describes the end, and it will be fulfilled. If it seems slow in coming, wait patiently, for it will surely take place. It will not be delayed.

3. Exactly 20 months ago today on the 21ST of January in 2007 I walked through the front doors of Life Pointe Church for the very first time. That was about 5 months into God’s amazing journey for me which started in August of 2006. This journey of 25 months has been mostly up, up, and away beyond my wildest expectations, but there have been a few slight dips along the way. The wonderful feeling that I get when I successfully pull out one of those dips can’t be explained in mere words. Experiencing a dip is normal. Dealing with it requires patience. Coming out of it is the greatest feeling in the world. It is all because of Him. It is all so if you just let Him.
