There is Power in the Name of Jesus…

Ever have one of those days when God is trying to give you a message…over…and over…and OVER?

He’s been sending me a BILLBOARD!  Three times today I’ve heard this same message:

“There is power in the name of Jesus!”

On Facebook, on a movie, and through an email.

What is that supposed to mean? To me? And why today?

I’ve been soaking it in,  trying to figure it out.

Soaking in the words of the song, “Break Every Chain”

  • There’s Power in the name of Jesus…
  • All sufficient sacrifice…
  • There’s an army rising up…
  • Break Every Chain…

I won’t suggest that I have figured it out, but I think Jesus is reminding me of His all-encompassing power, grace, and love.

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you, God, for the message…I feel so blessed to have heard Your words today.  I needed to hear them!

The Kansas City Royals are playing Game 7 of the World Series tonight!!!


kcroyals1Talk about surreal….it’s been 29 years since the Kansas City Royals have been in the World Series.  The whole city is happy!!  People are wearing their Royals shirts and hats, patting each other on the back, displaying flags on their house and car, and everywhere you go, you’ll hear stories of the last time the Royals made it to the World Series.  I remember going to the ticker tape parade in downtown Kansas City in 1985 to celebrate their last win, I was 13 years old.



I’m super pumped that my teenage boys might will get to experience that same excitement!  Only 1 more game to go, Royals!  You can do it, boys in blue! The whole city is behind you!!!
