Have A Happy New Year Hunting…

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! Well, Hunting season is FULLY here!! I got to enjoy this morning (New Years Day) doing one thing that I LOVE, duck hunting. The coolest part was that it was with one of my students. Once you have met “Big A” (Anthony) you will NEVER forget him!!! He is a sophomore at Obion Central High school and plays football and basketball. The reason we call him Big A is because he is a giant of a dude! He is 16 years old, 6 foot 2 inches and weighs 320 lbs. But he is a gentle giant to say the least. We had a blast and grew closer to each other as we shared favorite hunting stories and laughed as we talked about his high school friends and the stuff they do. Even the bad things that he chooses not to participate in. He reminded me about the time that he accepted Christ a few years ago at youth camp, I had the privilege of leading him through the sinners prayer. It was so encouraging to me as an adult to be able to share with a young man that knows the difference between right and wrong, and truly wants to make GOOD choices. As a student minister it seems that teenagers like Big A are hard to find these days.
You know we all as Christians are to spend time investing in people to help them grow in their faith! This is one on my new years resolutions, to invest in the lives of others. We did end up harvesting a few ducks, but did not bag the limits. In the hunting world we did not have a stellar day but in my world this morning was AWESOME!!!! Thank You Big A for encouraging me to live different this new year of 2011.

Big A and Me New Years Morning 2011

What is your resolution? Maybe you don’t do resolutions, but need to just make a decision to be ALL that He wants you to be!

Happy New Year and may God use you in a mighty way to encourage others.

BEAUTIFUL!!!!

I just LOVE this time of year!! Here in Union City, the weather has been just BEAUTIFUL!! The highs this week have been in the low to mid 70’s. I absolutely LOVE this time of year!  Bow season opened last Sat. and I got to sit in a tree and watch the sun rise.  I do not understand how someone could watch a sunrise and not wonder or marvel at the God that created it! Just wanted to say that I am humbled to serve such a Great God! I am SO glad that he forgives me of all the dumb things that I do! I also wanted to say that I LOVE my precious wife!! I am SO blessed that I married someone SO patient and caring!

Life is Great and God is GOOD!!!!!

BP OIL SPILL NEWS!!!!

In Alaska in 1988 the giant oil tanker Exxon Valdez spilled 11 million gallons of oil into the Prince William Sound.  It was said to have contaminated more than 1200 miles of the beautiful shoreline (distance from TN to Maine). There were more than 1,000 sea otters and 100,000 birds, including 150 bald eagles, and thousands more wildlife that were killed as a result of that accident. Losses to the fishing industry exceeded $100 billion. Even though I was only 6 years old when this spill happened I still remember seeing it on tv.

Even though the Valdez oil spill sounds bad it is now the 35th largest oil spill in history.  (As a matter of fact the smallest oil spill of the top ten largest in the world was four times larger than the Valdez.)

The BP oil spill has taken us all by surprise!!! We can’t really even fathom how much oil is leaking right now in the gulf. Right now it is number 3 on the list of largest oil spills in History.  New figures state that Deepwater Horizon is producing an Exxon Valdez-size spill every five to 13 days. WOW!!!  Most experts believe there is more oil gushing into the sea in an hour than officials originally said was spilling in an entire day. So far, an estimated 82- 100 million gallons of oil have leaked into the Gulf of Mexico.   Everything BP has tried to stop the largest oil spill in history has failed. The company has tried everything from “junk shots” to “top kill” to containment domes, and is still spending $100 million a day to try to cap the well and clean up the mess.  I can’t fathom that amount of dough….

To put things into perspective lets talk about a few other oil spills in history.

Making the list now as the number 6 largest was in the Persian Gulf – 1983 – over 80 million gallons were spilled, almost 8 times larger than the Valdez.  A tanker collided with a drilling platform, it eventually, collapsed into the sea. The well continued to spill oil into the ocean for seven months before it was repaired. Check it out.

Number 2 on the list is the Ixtoc 1 Oil Spill it happened on June 3, 1979 in the Bay of Campeche in Mexico.  The amount spilled was 140 million gallons

Like the current Gulf oil spill, this spill involve a tanker, but rather an offshore oil well. Pemex, a state-owned Mexican petroleum company was drilling an oil well when a blowout occurred, the oil ignited and the drilling rig to collapse. Oil began gushing out of the well into the Gulf of Mexico at a rate of 10,000 to 30,000 barrels a day for almost an entire year before workers were finally able to cap the well.

But wait…

This is INSANE CRAZY!!!!!

The #1 largest oil spill that the world has ever known was in Kuwait in 1991.  This was no accident when over 520 million gallons of oil was deliberately released into the water by iraqi forces.  They opened the valves of several oil tankers in order to slow the invasion of American troops. The oil slick was four inches thick and covered 4,000 square miles of ocean.

That’s almost four times the size of the state of Rhode Island, at four inches thick.  If you spread the oil out 1/2 an inch thick, which would not be fun to swim in, it would be enough to cover 32,000 square miles, which is larger than the state of South Carolina at only 30,109.47 square miles.

That’s a lot of oil!!! Hard to fathom!!!  Quite a disaster don’t you think?

Here’s what’s sad.

Out of the mouths of so many people today are nothing but disasters, oil spills, pollutants.

I can’t stand to hear people curse like a sailor (heard it last night) or bad mouth someone else, or gossip.

Out of our mouths we curse people that God has made, people that we are supposed to love, people that are in our own families. People that are PRICELESS!!! Relationships are hurting for years and years because of what we do with our mouths. My favorite book in the Bible, James says:

James 3:7-10 (The Message)

7-9 This is scary: You can tame a tiger, but you can’t tame a tongue—it’s never been done. The tongue runs wild, a wanton killer. With our tongues we bless God our Father; with the same tongues we curse the very men and women he made in his image. Curses and blessings out of the same mouth!

10-12My friends, this can’t go on. A spring doesn’t gush fresh water one day and brackish the next, does it? Apple trees don’t bear strawberries, do they? Raspberry bushes don’t bear apples, do they? You’re not going to dip into a polluted mud hole and get a cup of clear, cool water, are you?

OIL AND WATER DON’T MIX!!

Do your words help or harm?  Do they bruise or build-up? Do you Encourage or Discourage?  What if every stranger, classmate, co-worker or family member were living his/her last day on earth?  Could you live the rest of your life knowing that your words were edifying, encouraging?

Are you polluting this earth with your insults about others appearance, intellect, self-worth, behavior and value? Why is it SO easy to put others down? Because it makes us feel better about our insecurities?

Do you need to ask God’s forgiveness for the oil that you have deliberately spilled on others (with or without their knowledge).  Do you need to do some major clean-up in your relationships from the leaks of verbal crude comments?  Do you need to go to someone and ask forgiveness before your relationship drowns? If you don’t it will be costly!! Let God be your solution!!

Do whatever it takes to clean-up the relationships that you will only have once on this earth.

God Bless, Micah!!
