LoveSick

Valentine's is coming up this Sunday! V-day is a nice celebration of romance and love. Two years ago on valentine's I proposed to my wife on the beach! I've been leading a series this month for the student ministry called, "LoveSick." I'm praying that students accept God's plan for sex and relationships as the goal for their lives. I'm posting some thoughts and points that we have been covering this month during our weekly service called, "Momentum."

Week 1 -  “Superman vs. Kryptonite” - Judges 13-14 (Samson's Obsession with LUST)

Main Thought: When we become obsessed with the lust of relationships, we lose sight of God's plan

  1. Samson was STRONG on the OUTSIDE

He was a "beast" as we like to say.

  • He killed a lion with his bare hands.
  • He single-handedly killed thirty Philistines.
  • He killed one thousand Philistines with the jawbone of a donkey.

2. Samson was WEAK on the INSIDE

  • Delilah’s name is literally “weakness”
  • He disobeyed his parents - It is vital to honor parents when it comes to relationships.

Culture today says that our worth is tied to how many relationships we have – especially of the opposite sex. God has given us our own unique identity – many times we look at other people to define ourselves. As a teenager, Samson began to move away from God's specific calling to rescue the Israelites from the Philistines because of giving into LUST.

I will post tomorrow on the second week of the "LoveSick" series!

What a day!

Today was a beautiful day to live in Florida. It was beautiful outside and so me and Cassidy decided to head to the beach. We had a great time relaxing and enjoying time together. Our one year anniversary of our engagement is on Valentine's day. We went to the exact beach where I asked her to marry me! I'm blessed to be married to such an awesome woman of God. She amazes me every day by her love and desire to serve Jesus. "A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies." Proverbs 31:10

Check out our pictures from today's fun outing to the beach and Cassidy's pedicure.

Let me know what you think of the pictures?
