a Divine appointment?

Moses was called up to the mountain top for a “Divine appointment”.  God met him there on that mountain that glowed like it was on fire.  His life was changed for ever.  Humanity was changed forever.  Moses accepted the call and risked much to venture up that mountain.

Here in 2019, life happens.  Things stir and go off the rails very easily.  We get beaten up by work, the demands of home, the feelings of being overlooked.  Spirits of diminishment, shame, worthlessness come over us.  The swamp starts to win and we find ourselves losing the battle with the world.

And then God…

Then, there is a turn.  We’re called out of comfort to risk time away, financial cost and uncertainty and we feel God is nudging us to “more” and we are being called up the mountain.

This is where the Wild at Heart Bootcamp comes in.  My life changed 10+ years ago at my first Bootcamp.  It was a radical turning point in my life.  It was a “Divine appointment” on top of that mountain in Colorado.  God met me there and changed my life.

Registration for the fall Bootcamp is coming up next week.  (see previous post with details)

Is God calling you to venture out?  Are you listening?  Will you respond to the call? 

No one is going to do this for you.  It’s oh so easy to rationalize this away with, “I’m too busy to take this time off” — or — “not now, maybe I’ll go in the future”.  Men, you have NO idea if there will be a future.  Wake up.  Listen.  If God is calling you, respond.  He will meet you there.

Manschool wraps up this Wednesday

Please join us this Wednesday morning May 22nd as we wrap up the Spring session of Manschool and we break for the summer.

You’ll hear from Beau Hughes and his thoughts about the Become Good Soil intensive. We’ll go through some reminders of the ground we’ve covered this Spring.  It is amazing at how much territory we’ve covered.  We will also give you three things for your summer.

I think you will find this final session will be very encouraging.

help a Veteran, grab a chainsaw

The Torres Family needs our help and prayers.  Their property in Ellerslie Place was an impact point for the tornado that came through.

We will have folks out there this Saturday to serve but if you or somebody you know can come for even an hour or two to help it would be greatly appreciated.  Ken Himes will also be out there this Friday around noon if you want to help on Friday.

We have people running chainsaws and need other folks to pull limbs away as they are cut and drag and stack them in burn piles.

Gloves and boots and long sleeves are encouraged.  Please prayerfully consider sharing this with folks you know who might help us help them.

Cesar Torres is an Iraqi War Veteran and had to leave yesterday to lead some training at Ft. Hood, TX.  His wife (Alba) and teenage son (Joel) are here without him and we promised him we’d stand in the gap and stay with them until we got their property squared away.


Take US 27 (Manchester Expressway) to Ellerslie and then 315 toward Talbotton (First light after 4 lanes become 2 lanes).  About a mile up on the left is Ellerslie Place – take the second entrance

Take a left on Ossahatchie and go up past the mailbox marked as 1352 Ossahatchie turn left just past that (The street sign is missing).

Go down a block and the next left is Bent Tree Drive and the house is on the left. #104 Bent Tree Drive.  The Torres Family.

We start at 9:00 on Saturday. Come when you can leave when you have to.

are you in a battle right now?

Are you in a battle of any kind?

Is there a mountain in front of you that you have no idea how you’re going to get past?

Is your marriage in trouble?

Do you lay awake in bed at night worried?

What are you fearful of?

Respond below.  Write it down – not the issue itself – but rather, what it is you’re feeling.  Are you feeling God or is He nowhere to be found?  What are you doubting?  Is there hopelessness, despair, lostness?  Describe it.

Your answers will remain anonymous and won’t be posted on this site.  I’m gathering these answers for future reference in our discussion of DIRT.
