A house becomes a home when you can write"I love you" on the furniture."
I can't tell you how many countless hours that I have spent CLEANING!
I used to spend at least 8 hours every weekend making sure things were just perfect "in case someone came over."
Then I realized one day that no-one came over; they were all out living life and having fun!
Now, when people visit, I find no need to explain the "condition" of my home.
They are more interested in hearing about the things I've been doing while I was away living life and having fun.
If you haven't figured this out yet, please heed this advice.
Life is short. Enjoy it! Dust if you must, but wouldn't it be better to paint a picture or write a letter, bake a cake or plant a seed, ponder the difference between want and need?
Dust if you must, but there's not much time, with rivers to swim and mountains to climb, music to hear and books to read, friends to cherish and life to lead.
Dust if you must, but the world's out there with the sun in your eyes, the wind in your hair, a flutter of snow, a shower of rain. This day will not come around again.
Dust if you must, but bear in mind, old age will come and it's not kind.
And when you go -- and go you must --you, yourself will make more dust!
It's not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived

NO LIMITS CONFERENCE IN SACRAMENTO.
I just don't know where to begin to explain the experience at the Rock Church. The preaching was amazing and God anointed. Bro Randy Keyes preaching about the miracle working God we serve and the man's eye being healed right there in the middle of the preaching was awesome. The message by Bro. Wilson about dead bones living again spoke to me on a very personal level. Do we dare walk around them and expore them? It is a deeper thing than meets the eye and definitely not a surface experience. Bro Cody Marks hit on so much. It was so powerful! The Friday evening altar service was probally the most impacting for me. It was such a powerful move of God! There were undercurrents and severe personal struggle all that day for me and at the end of the service I just decided I was going to whorship God. I went to the front. As I stood there trying to whorship, the Spirit of the LOrd moved in all around me. People praying for other people. During this time a preacher ( I have no idea who) began to pray powerfully for me. I will never forget the words spoken. "Take your hands off of it. Let the Holy Ghost work it out. Take your hands off of it! I was just standing there worshipping God. He had no idea who I was and for sure no way of knowing the war that was waging. It meant so much to me.
There is so much in my heart. The whole experience of the Rock Church. The spirit of the church, the absolutely beautiful people we met, the work going on. It was just so overwhelming to me. I feel stirrings in my spirit that I want to come out fully. I feel God trying to perfect me and work the carnality out of me. This process it not always pleasant. I want to be filled with so much more of God's love. Love that reaches out to my family and friends. A love that supercedes all boundaries, that will not be governed by selfish motivation. A love that goes beyond personalities and self conciousness. Just a pure moving of the Holy Ghost in me!
This post is definitely not exhaustive but I wanted to write a little about the experience at No Limits.

As I was driving thru traffic yesterday, I began to think about the different types of soil that are described in scripture as the condition of the human heart. The wayside, the stoney ground, the thorns and the good ground. The one that stood out to me the most was the thorns, which are the cares of life and the deceitfulness of riches. The thorns are what chokes the word and makes me unfruitful. I must continually plough the thorns under , breaking up the hard, fallow ground so that the Word of God can take root in my heart and grow, producing bountifully the beautful fruits of the Spirit.
Let's beware of the thorns and prepare our soil to be able to germinate the seed of the Word of God. Every answer and everything we need is in that Word.
The word of God is quick and powerful... Man shall not LIVE by bread alone , but by EVERY word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
Get into the Word!!!!
