This poem impacted me (Diceman) today. It might be something
to print out and put on your refrigerator?
Turn back to where you left Him, and you will find Him there,
He is waiting by the bedside where you used to kneel in prayer.
He is standing in the chapel by that long abandoned pew,
And he stands by your forsaken swath where laborers are few.
You are older, sorer,broken. You are tired of self, tis true.
But return to where you left Him. He is waiting there for you!

I’ve seen a few lists of these in the past, that are lame, but these are really funny! What do you think? Single guys/ girls? The top pick-up lines for Christian singles….
1. I would part the Red Sea for you.”.
2. “What’re you doing for the rest of your afterlife?” .
3. “Did you say your name was Esther? Oh, I guess I just think you were chosen for such a time as this.”
4. “Did it hurt when you fell from heaven?”
5. “10% of me is 100% certain that I can give you 10% of my heart forever.” (This is to be used only during tithe and offering time and is so confusing it just may work.)
6. “Let’s be like Noah and do this as a pair.”
7. “You must be Egyptian because I’m a slave for you.”
8. “You and me, we’re like loaves and fishes…we just might be a miracle.”
9. “Do you want to be accountability partners?”
10. “On first dates, I always take girls to get BBQ ribs. It feels the most biblical considering they came from one.”
11. “I know you’ve already said no once, but call me Joshua because I’m going to break down your walls.”
12. “I’m no Joseph, but I’m having trouble interpreting the dreams I’ve been having about you.”
13. “I don’t know if you noticed but, when you walked into the room, that was me giving up a clap offering.”
14. “I may not have a job right now, and I may live in my parent’s basement, but I swear to you I’m storing up treasure in heaven and my mansion is gonna rock.”

TIM HAWKINS - LIVE IN CONCERT
Stewart Road Church of God
Location: 1199 Stewart Road, Monroe, MI (Map)
Friday Night @ Ford Field in Downtown Detroit (the event is 24 hours, Sara will just be there on Friday night)
THE CALL 11/11/11 - Prayer Rally
Friday 11/11/2011 5 PM Length: 24 Hours
On November 11–12, 2011, thousands from across America will gather to Detroit to fast, pray and cry out to God. We will gather to this city that has become a microcosm of our national crisis—economic collapse, racial tension, and the shedding of innocent blood of our children in the streets and of our unborn. But the place where they say there is no hope, God has chosen as His staging ground for a great communal healing and His house of prayer for all nations. Therefore, we are calling the nation to a 24-hour solemn assembly, daring to believe that Detroit’s desperation can produce a prayer that can change a nation. Come and take your place on the wall in Detroit, where we will ask God to send fire on our hearts, to forgive our national guilt and establish justice in our land
Ford Field, DETROIT, MI (Map)

If you are a new listener to Smile FM, you may want to know more about this amazing positive hit music. It may be a good time to ditch all of your old music and so you never have to worry about what is playing in the car or at home? Did you know that there is a Christian band that sounds like Queen, and another band that sounds like Coldplay. Here is a list of positive hit artists that pretty much cover every style of music. http://www.otterbeinchurch.org/documents/MusicComparisonDoc.PDf

1. You are not attending church with a high level of expectancy.
2. You no longer seem to be concerned about the spiritual condition of neighbors, family members, or your co-workers.
3. You haven’t had a spiritual conversation with a non-Christian in a long time.
4. The Bible seems like a history book. It’s lifeless to you.
5. Your happiness on Sunday mornings is more important than what it takes to reach the unchurched. As long as you get your parking spot, your seat, and hear the music you like, everything’s fine.
6. The plight of the poor doesn’t concern you.
7. Pictures of overseas suffering do not move you to action.
8. You do not give your financial resources sacrificially.
9. Your prayers don’t seem to be making it past the ceiling.
10. It doesn’t even dawn on you that God could do something incredibly radical in your life at any moment today. It’s not even on your radar.

The Making a Difference tour is sponsored by Great Lakes Christian College of Lansing.
Wow! This is refrigerator material. 5 easy things to do, to avoid moral failure by Pastor Shawn King/Atlanta.
1.. Multiple people have access to every account I own and check them often: Twitter (public and private tweets), Facebook, Email, etc.
Secrecy and privacy are the breeding ground for moral failure. When we are confident that nobody will see our ugly side, it is much more tempting to dibble dabble in craziness. If (former) Congressman Anthony Weiner knew that several aides were checking his Direct Messages, his inbox, etc. it would have been far less likely that his current scandal would have happened.
2. My wife is busy, but I regularly leave my cell phone with her when I’m not around. She looks at it. She’s not obsessed with it, but I think she checks it out with a healthy level of skepticism. Her skepticism does not irritate me. She and I have seen friends and mentors and leaders walk right into the worst types of moral failure. This level of transparency builds trust.
3. I generally don’t meet with any single person (male or female) privately anymore. I will meet with couples or small groups in my office, but now hold more meetings in restaurants, coffee shops, etc.
4. I stay with my family. We travel together as much as possible. We run errands together. We eat out together. We go shopping together. We stay home together. Very rarely am I alone without one of the kids or my wife. This keeps my mind centered, but also prevents me from having idle time that leads many folk to an unhealthy place.
5. I keep pictures of my wife and kids everywhere (particularly my son EZ) on the wallpaper of my cell phone, in my office, on the walls, on my desks, etc. They serve as a constant reminder for me why I should have a good work ethic and fight to make healthy moral decisions. I didn’t grow up with a dad that set a good example and I so badly want to be that guy for my son that his pictures always keep me focused and centered
