Lately this song has been my anthem. As my friends and I embark on this adventure of Screaming Life Ministries, it would be easy to be overwhelmed. There is a lot that goes into producing a single benefit concert. Organizing volunteers, getting donations to be raffled, making signs and tshirts, not too mention setting up bank accounts, gaining 501c-3 status, creating bylaws. I could decide to take the easy way out and let someone else do this, but God has called me to participate in His great work. I absolutely do not take credit for anything good that comes out of this, it all belongs to God. My bff Debbie is also working super hard to get things moving, my husband Chris and our friend Chris (yeah try keeping that straight in an email) are all putting forth so much effort to make this thing a success. Not in the hopes of making money for ourselves, or turning it into a paying job; but so that we can affect our community in a positive way.

Again, I ask for your prayers because I know in the next week Satan will be attacking us from all directions. Whenever you are obedient and seeking God, that's when you're on Satan's radar. But I REFUSE to give up!! I REFUSE to be discouraged. I REFUSE to be selfish or cynical or deterred by outside forces. The God who lives inside me is bigger than anything this world can throw at me!!
