Happy Father's Day

Happy Father's Day to all the Dad's out there!

Remembering My Dad  
Mr. Leroy "Bud" Deckard Sr. 
"The Amarillo Kid"

He was the BEST Dad in the world.  He could cook, clean, wash, sew, landscape, fix cars, and still manage his family.  He was also a great business man. He worked hard. Played hard. And enjoyed life.  He was an awesome husband and provider. He made sure that his family was taken care of because we NEVER wanted for ANYTHING. He worked for Central Freight Lines for 40 years and only missed 1 day of work. He served his community well and never missed an opportunity to vote. They don't make'em like him anymore; he was truly one-of-a-kind and will always be missed.  He was a GREAT man and I thank God for giving us a Dad like him.

Today, I said farewell to a dear friend and brother in Christ. Words cannot express how much I will miss him. I know he's resting in the arms of Jesus and that gives me peace.  One day, I shall see him again.  Until we meet again, RIP.Ronald Jefferson, my brother from another mother.

Peace Stays

Peace can be a priceless commodity because it seems that very few people possess it. My peace comes from Jesus which means, you can't take it.  Why?? Because I won't give it away. 

I like it here (peace).  I enjoy it here (peace). I'm staying here (peace).   Just saying...

Where Is The Love?

And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.1 Cor 13:13.

It's been a while since I've blogged so here's something for you to chew on today.

Life will take you through twists and turns, highs and lows. Even in the midst of victory, there's struggle going on in our world.  So much judgement and fear.  Too much skepticism and doubt.  So much to really live for but too little to die for. Die for a GOOD reason - die for Jesus! 

"Nonsense is the name of the game and mud-slinging seems to be the language of exchange" 

Nothing pleasant and helpful to say; just your everyday belittling and mindless verses.  And how has that helped humanity??? Where is the love?

Let's get to the meat of the matter! What is the matter? What resolve can we conclude to reduce or solve the problem?  WE are ALL humans and HUMAN lives matter!!!

There's enough mess going on to last us all several lifetimes. With so much junk out there, we mustn't forget to show love.  Faith is good. Hope is good. But love is something you have to practice.  It's the love that can heal - not the hurt and hindering practices that seems to feel so comfortable for some people.

It's love that covers (over) a multitude of sins. 1 Peter 4:8  Hate what is evil but love what is good.

There is a blessed hope for those who love God.  There is a sacred hope for those who worship Him.  There is an everlasting love for those who love Him.  There is an expected end for those who trust Him. It is when we show (action word) love, then the world will KNOW that we truly are His followers.  God IS love.  How will "they" know us???...if we have love for one another.” John 13:35

...Love God, love your neighbor AS YOU LOVE yourselves. Mark 12:31

"If you connect to the hearts of others, then they will give you a helping hand"

Be blessed and live well, 

-Pastor D

Today's Prayer

LORD, thank You for allowing us to see another day.  When I opened up my eyes this morning, I dare not pause to say, Thank You!  Thank You for every blessed promise.  Thank You for not leaving me nor forsaking me. Today, I am truly grateful because You have been SO faithful.  I celebrate Jesus because He's real in my life and I pray that He becomes as real in yours as He is in mine. 
Thank You Father, for preparing me for whatever is next.  I have not apprehended it but one thing I DO know, that whatever it is, it will ALL work for my good. (Romans 8:28).  Therefore, I will live...REALLY live for You and Your glory.  
Let Your will be done in my life today and everyday, and in the lives of Your People, in the matchless name of Jesus I pray, Amen!
- Pastor D

Thanks to my C'Rock Leaders!

Leaders don’t wait to receive gratitude; they freely bestow it upon others – thanking their peers, subordinates and managers. They publicly express appreciation, and they recognize others for their contributions. You don’t need a management title to give kudos to your peers. Being willing to share praise and spread the spirit of positivity will make you stand out. You’ll be acknowledged as someone who sees the importance of positive feedback in motivating and engaging others.
