God's Not Dead

If you have not seen this movie then I would encourage you to go see it. I have been at Open Door Mission for 14 years now. I am so thankful that everyday I can see God's hand at work.

One of the things I get to teach class to our program men once a week. Recently we were talking about Prayer in class. It was awesome to hear men that I have known for a while say to me "I can talk to God anytime I want to." To hear the joy in their voices talk about having a relationship with a Living God, knowing He hears them and is always there for him blesses my heart.

It reminds me of a Hymn that we always would sing in Church growing up. "He Lives" The first verse and chorus goes like

"I serve a risen Savior, 
 He’s in the world today.
I know that He is living, Whatever men may say.
I see His hand of mercy; I hear His voice of cheer;
And just the time I need Him, He’s always near.
He lives, He lives, Christ Jesus lives today!
He walks with me and talks with me along life’s narrow way.
He lives, He lives, salvation to impart!
You ask me how I know He lives?
He lives within my heart."

It totally reminded me that We do serve a risen Savior and God is not Dead He is Alive!
