In December 2012 Jaxson Robertson was diagnosed with stage 4 Hepatoblastoma, A VERY RARE cancer, Hepatoblastoma occurs in 1.6 of every 1,000,000 children a year. There are only 50-70 new cases a year in the U.S. This cancer makes up approximately 1% of ALL pediatric cancers. Over the last 6 months Jaxson has undergone several treatments of chemotherapy at the Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Even though he has responded well to the chemotherapy the family recently found out a resection (a removal of part of his liver) would not be possible. They were told Jaxson will need a complete liver transplant as soon as possible.Thankfully, due to the advanced stage of the cancer, Jaxson was moved to the top of the list to receive a liver transplant at the St. Louis Children’s Hospital. Jaxson received his new liver at St. Louis Children’s Hospital We are launching this campaign in the hopes we can raise money to help this wonderful little boy and his family cover the costs the are facing to make sure their little boy lives a long and healthy life!
A fantastic article by Terry Dean
“Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”
There are several ways you can look at this scripture. The first is that if you delight yourself in the Lord, God will answer your prayers and give you what you’ve been desiring. I believe that, but also look at something else it is saying to us. If you delight yourself in the Lord, he will give you the desires of your heart. He will put those desires in you.
If you’re focused on Him first and have put Him first in your life, then the desires in your heart also come from Him. If it your heart’s desire to go to college to become a doctor, then that desire has been placed there by God. If your heart’s desire is to own real estate, then you know where you should be focusing your attention. If your heart’s desire is to start a business, then He is the one who put that desire in you.
Starting a business can be a risky venture, so a lot of people go through life living way below their purpose because of fear. You’ll have to step out of your comfort zone. You’ll have to spend time learning all the aspects of business. You’ll have to put money at risk to study, research, and find people who can work with you. It is not always easy. There are millions of Christians who go through their whole life working a mediocre job knowing there is something greater for them. They get up and go to work day after day…while their heart cries out for something more. You can have so much more. You can complete your calling. If you haven’t already started, then use this book as your kick in the seat of your pants to get you moving.
Make a decision today you won’t just do what is most comfortable. You’re going to step up to your next level in life. It is time for God’s champions to come forth. It is time for people who love God to start taking action in the business world. For too long the church has looked at pastors and evangelists as being the only ones with a special calling from God. This is wrong!
People who are “in the ministry” are simply those who are called to teach others in the church. Most real ministry takes place outside of the four church walls. You are called of God as one of his ministers. A Christian business person is a calling. It is a ministry. You may be the only Jesus people around you ever see. We are called to be the light of the world, and we shouldn’t be hiding our lights in the church building. Be someone who really cares about your customers. Be someone who has integrity in business. Be someone that other people can look up to and look forward to doing business with. Christian business people who let their lights shine in the marketplace are God’s champions.
My prayer is to raise up new champions for God. Be a champion. Step out into the marketplace and become what you’ve been created to be. You have talents and skills God has put in you, and you need to be using them. There is a business out there waiting for you that only you can do. Don’t live life in fear…but step out of the boat like Peter and be one of God’s champions.
Continually put God first in your life and obey His Word. Seek God and let Him guide you. He may give you new ideas in the company you work for which greatly increase their profits. You may get profit sharing on those ideas. You may have a desire to start your own Internet business like I did. You may want to start a baking company. You may want to start a cleaning business. You may want to buy land or houses. You may study books on stock investing. You may learn about commodity investing. You may go back to college.
I can’t tell you His plans for you, but I can tell you a few principles about His plans. His plan will always be too big for you. They don’t just come Super-sized. They come in God-size.

Remember thoughts are prayers and we are always thinking, hence we pray unceasingly whether we realize it or not. Our prayers are always being answered. Wise people are aware of what they think of because dominate thoughts do manifest in our physical world. Want to see where most of your thought energy is directed? Just take a look at your surroundings. Many people who are living a life less desireable than they want tell me all the time that they are not wishing for their current conditions. What too many people do not understand is that the mental energy put into concentrating on the undesireable goes out to the universe and brings more of the dominate thought energy. This is especially true when those thoughts are charged with high emotions.
It is important to not get caught up in what appears to be current circumstances. Be sure to spend as much time as possible being grateful for the good that is going on in your life. It may be as simple as having any car while others are walking or taking a bus. It could be having a place to sleep indoors when so many are sleeping outside on the streets. Remember the old saying. I felt sorry for myself because I had no shoes till I met a man who had no feet. Take quiet time to imagine yourself living in the life of your choosing. It all starts in the mind.

Peace and Love
There is a lot of power in a morning sunrise. It is a perfect time for prayer, meditation, quiet time and sending out blessings.
Someone just sent me a blessing request which on the surface may appear to be a tall order. Everything is relative, one man’s $5000.00 is another man’s $5.00. I see it all the time.
There is an old saying which has a lot more meaning than first appears on the surface. “Let go and let God”. What does that mean? The meaning is just that, once we send out a desire, it is done, let it go. If we have a need for $10,000 within a month, know that it is possible. We just can’t dictate exactly how our needs will be met. Since we can’t dictate how the results may occur, we must absolutely let it go.
We have done our part once we determine that there is a want or need and have the faith to turn it over to the Creator to work out our path. Faith is the key word here. As Napoleon Hill states in his masterpiece work “Think and Grow Rich”, “What the mind of man can conceive and believe it can achieve”. There is that word again, believe. For many faith and belief has to be learned and practiced.
What you must understand is that if you are able to think about a possibility that means that somewhere in the universe it is already a reality. You could certainly visualize the event as having already been achieved but even then don’t dwell on it. Let go and let God! A master teacher of living from the dream desired is Neville Goddard in his great book “Awakened Imagination“. This is a book that I highly recommend for those who want to learn how to conceive, believe and achieve by letting go and letting God.
