Here’s what happening:
Radio: Interviewed Wes Perry on the MoneyWise call in program. Wes is the mayor of Midland, Texas, and an Oil and Gas expert. Wanted our listeners to be able to ask him questions about why gasoline was so high at the pump these days. Loved his answer to the question: “Will oil cost $50 a barrel or $150 a barrel?” His answer, “Yes!” The price of oil is unpredictable and volatile.
FPU: Finished co-leading Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University (FPU) 13 week DVD series with a class of 22 young couples at our church. It is really well done, and Dave is an amazingly gifted communicator. I”m convinced that people and churches would benefit most by taking FPU and the Compass Navigating Your Finances God’s Way small group study. The strength of FPU is the practical and the strength of Navigating is the biblical financial emphasis. Both are needed.
Prayer request: Please pray for Compass’ president, Dave Rae, who will be traveling and speaking often in India and Asia. Pray for his safety and health and for the Lord to allow this to be an incredibly fruitful time for him with our outstanding leadership in this part of the world.
Think about it and grow: I read Proverbs 119:58 this morning, and it really convicted me. It says, “I have sought your [the Lord’s] face with all my heart, be gracious to me according to your promises.” I am by nature an “A” personality—a busy, activist type person. Too often I jump in to pray and read my Bible and do my work without being quiet and seeking the face of Christ with all my heart. Let’s be quiet and get to know Jesus better.
Love in Christ,
