The Nines

393207093-1

today was neat.  if for nothing else than the fact that it was 9/09/09.  some creatives got together and came up with a leadership event called “The Nines.”  it was 9 minute leadership clips from 70+ leaders from around the world.  it was awesome.  what made it even more great?  Brad Powell did one of the 9 minute clips.  it was solid.

however, one clip stuck out from the rest.  i can’t remember his name, or what church he’s from.  but he talked about the power from being engrossed in the word of God.  if we are not being daily filled up by the word of God…then how are we filling others up?  are we filling them up by our own strength? our own abilities? too often this is true.  i think that’s why we get so burned out.  we’re trying to do it on our own.

may we fill others with the overflow of what God is doing in our own lives.

now go read your bible

what i’m praying for

i LOVE conferences.  straight up.  i think they’re awesome.

northridge church is hosting their annual change without compromise conference.  hundreds of church leaders are here soaking in all that brad is giving them.  one of the things we have the honor of doing is praying for these people before, during, and after it’s all said and done.  here’s what i’m praying for

rest.  a time to get away from whatever routine is and have a change in scenary.  this is needed.  this is valuable.

revelation.  i’m praying that these people get a word from God.  that the holy spirit would use brad to speak into situations and breathe new learnings into them…new perspective…new vision.

so that’s it.  that is what i’m praying for.
