Holy Cow Batman!  Here we are in 2008!  Can you believe it?  What a phenomenal year 07 was. We saw God impact our generation and our community through you guys.  We are already feeling God's Spirit blow all over this year.  We have dedicated the 1st 21 days of this year to seeking His face and listening to His voice.  I would love to invite you on this journey with us.  

Some of us are fasting (doing with out something to make room for GOD - food, media, sleep) and trying to listen to what God is saying for us as individuals and corporately.  

"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?

"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. - Matthew 6:25-34

I challenge all of you apply this principle in your life.  Before you do anything, anything, STOP and seek His face and ask Him what the RIGHT thing is for you to do.  He will guide you, cloth you and feed you!  

I love you guys and am looking forward to growing closer to God and His plans with all of you!

A Contrite Heart

I have struggled with what to fast for the 21 days of prayer and fasting. Quietly asking God what I should do, He whispers ever so gently to me that it is not WHAT I do but HOW I can attain the goal of gaining a contrite heart and a broken spirit before Him. Suddenly it comes to me what I should do. I know what draws me closer to Him. For me it looks different than for you. What do you need to implement in your life for these 21 days and maybe even beyond
that you know will draw you closer to him? that will develop a broken spirit in you allowing you to be able to see Him reaching and calling out to you to give you what you need. He desires to be ALL for us. We have to remove blinders in our lives that keep us from seeing and receiving this ALL. God Bless, Tracy

Isaiah 65 (New Living Translation)
1 The Lord says,
“I was ready to respond, but no one asked for help. I was ready to be found, but no one was looking for me. I said, ‘Here I am, here I am!’ to a nation that did not call on my name.

11 “But because the rest of you have forsaken the Lord and have forgotten his Temple, and because you have prepared feasts to honor the god of Fate and have offered mixed wine to the god of Destiny, 12 now I will ‘destine’ you for the sword. All of you will bow down before the executioner. For when I called, you did not answer. When I spoke, you did not listen. You deliberately sinned—before my very eyes—and chose to do what you know I despise.”

Psalm 51:15-17

15 Unseal my lips, O Lord, that my mouth may praise you.
16 You do not desire a sacrifice, or I would offer one. You do not want a burnt offering.

17 The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.
