Where Your Dreams Meet God’s Plan
July 1, 2013
“But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.”
I remember back when I was 16 years old, I thought baseball was everything. I ate it, drank it, and lived it every day of my life. People often ask me what kept me out of the major leagues. And I tell them, “One thing: the scouts!” I loved baseball, but I wasn’t good enough to go to the majors.
One night after a game I dropped a buddy off at his house and then drove back by the ball field. No one was around and the lights were out, so I decided to go out and take a walk on the field. I started praying, and God began to make it clear to me He had plans for me well beyond baseball.
So I began talking to God right there between second and third bases and I said, “Lord, I want to be committed. If playing baseball isn’t in Your plan for me, that’s fine. But whatever You have for me, I surrender to it now.” I got down in the dirt, prayed, and handed my life over to God.
Dreams are a good thing, but they must be laid at the feet of Jesus. Don’t let chasing your dreams cause you to miss something God has for you that will be so much better and more fulfilling. Surrender your life to God and let Him take the reins. He didn’t disappoint me, and He won’t disappoint you either!
LAY YOUR DREAMS AT THE FEET OF JESUS AND OPEN YOURSELF TO HIS WONDERFUL PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE!

Get the best from 2012 to be your best in 2013
While many pastors shy away from addressing controversial issues, I sincerely believe you need to hear straight, “bulls-eye” biblical teaching on many of today’s hot topics. Not only to grow in your faith as a believer, but to give winsome, compassionate answers to the hard questions our culture is asking.
That’s why I want to send you a special new resource today – my CD series called The Best of 2012.
This series contains 10 of my most popular and compelling messages from 2012, and it’s a resource that’s sure to help you in 2013 because it includes messages such as, “Are All Religions the Same?”, “Lessons on Leadership,” and “What Is a Christian?”
The Best of 2012 is my gift to thank you for your donation to help PowerPoint continue to proclaim God’s Word and truth ’til the whole world hears. So please request your copy when you give today.
