Perfect Storm Mind-Dump

storm-blog001 Sunday Night Mind-Dump

  • Preaching three service is always tiring but I’ve never felt so emotionally exhausted after a service. While I am exhausted I cannot get my brain to shut down.

I was honored to hear so many storm stories in between the services today.
Carmel has more people in the middle of a storm than I had anticipated.

I saw more tears today in the services than I have in all my years at Carmel.

I heard that I was 20 minutes late in the first service but yet was on time in the other two. How does that happen?

I so appreciate all of our volunteers that have to leave a little early to make it to their posts. Hope they know that I asked for the doors to stay closed  so that they could have a chance to respond in worship,.

One of the most vocal services today had to be the 11am traditional hour. I think I got a little to Old School Southern Baptist in there. I love preaching in that service.

God had his hand all over Derek McFarland today. Lem did a great job coordinating all three service. I missed worshiping with my family in the Edge today.

For the record my tie was orange and not pink.What happened to Ralph’s hair did anyone ever find out?

Heard that I made some people upset in the 11am service when I said don’t get your “panties in a wad.” Funny I have no idea when I said that or why I said that. Shouldn’t that statement be negated if you did get your panties in a wad after I said don’t?

Spoke to a lady today who has just lost her home, car, and all of her savings and yet with tears in her eyes she was praising God.

The end of the 9:30am worship blew me away. To say that our people engaged God in worship on the closing song would be an under statement. I hope we start worshiping with that type of intensity every Sunday.

Thanking God that people felt the freedom to do business with Him at the altar. Felt like God had His hand on me in all three services today. I love that feeling.

Had a hard time processing the images of the hurting people that God was flashing in my mind as I preached about the storms.

Praying for those who are in the middle of the storm. Praying for those who are watching us in the storm.
