Happy Birthday Loren!!!

Happy Birthday Brotha!!!


Loren has become one my of adopted little brothers here in Chicago ... a pain-in-the-neck little brother (just kidding ... sort of ). Seriously though, he's a good kid. His family has been a real blessing to me (my friend Jasmine is his older sister). I really do love him a lot and I wish him a very Happy Birthday and God's richest blessings!!!

Last night was our prayer meeting. It was amazing. I don't even know where to begin! God is really calling us as individuals and as a church to go deeper in Him ... and to surrender our all. When I got home last night, I read my evening devotion and this sentence really popped out at me ... check it out ...
"With an enthusiastic love for Jesus difficulties are surmounted, sacrifices become pleasures, sufferings are honours." (Charles Spurgeon)

I looked up the lyrics to "I SURRENDER ALL".
The words are powerful. I want to share them with you...
All to Jesus, I surrender; All to Him I freely give; I will ever love and trust Him, In His presence daily live.
I surrender all, I surrender all, All to Thee, my blessèd Savior, I surrender all.
All to Jesus I surrender; Humbly at His feet I bow, Worldly pleasures all forsaken; Take me, Jesus, take me now.
I surrender all, I surrender all, All to Thee, my blessèd Savior, I surrender all.
All to Jesus, I surrender; Make me, Savior, wholly Thine; Let me feel the Holy Spirit, Truly know that Thou art mine.

I surrender all, I surrender all, All to Thee, my blessèd Savior, I surrender all.

All to Jesus, I surrender; Lord, I give myself to Thee; Fill me with Thy love and power; Let Thy blessing fall on me.
I surrender all, I surrender all, All to Thee, my blessèd Savior, I surrender all.
All to Jesus I surrender; Now I feel the sacred flame.
O the joy of full salvation! Glory, glory, to His Name!
I surrender all, I surrender all, All to Thee, my blessèd Savior, I surrender all.
