Denver Moore ... Angel Here on Earth - SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME !!!

I just left hearing Denver Moore and Ron Hall share about God at an event to benefit the NASHVILLE RESCUE MISSION ...They are the authors of SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME ...  I met Denver and Ron ... Shaking Denver's hand and looking into his beautiful old brown eyes,  I heard the LORD whisper to me, "DON'T MISS ME (LORD) RIGHT HERE."  ...  Ron shared their story which I remembered from reading the book and then Denver got up and began speaking ... I was paralyzed by his words ...  The way he presents his message is unmistakably prophetic ... IT WAS GOD'S MESSAGE TO ME and all that were in the room ... I had a tissue wiping away the tears as I was taking NOTES (not something I typically do at a fundraiser) ... I had to soak it up and was fearful I would miss something ...

I was in desperate need to have my cup filled and now I feel drenched ... NO LONGER PARCHED from a long week or should I say a long few months ...

Ron shared so many things that God has showed him through Denver ... The story of the Samaritan - It  isn't just about how it will effect US if we don't stop and help -love someone in need, but IT IS ALSO ABOUT WHAT WILL HAVE TO THEM IF WE DON'T ... What will happen to the orphan, the widow, the homeless man/woman/child, or the person in prison IF WE DON'T STOP!!! WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THEM !!!

Denver quickly points out that if there are 6000 homeless people in FORTH WORTH and 6501 churches that the answer is simple - each church takes one and the others just won't get one ... I MEAN HOW SIMPLE !!! We don't need a governmental program, committee, or years of planning to solve the problem of the LEAST, the LOST, or the LAST - We are the body of Christ and have HIS POWER in us ...

I laughed at this comment - BECAUSE IT IS SO TRUE ... He talked about how we sure do have a lot of BIBLE STUDIES, but not much BIBLE DOIN !!! I mean how honest and perceptive is that !!!

Here was another IN MY FACE analogy  ... He talks about how we worship a homeless man (Jesus) on Sunday and then ignore them on Monday - walk past them, don't look at them, are disgusted by them, judge them and so much more !!!

It really is all about RESETTING our compass ... Denver ended his talk by singing a song to us ... It was so rich, soulful, and piercing to my heart ... HE ASKED US TO ALL PRAY FOR HIM ... He talked about how being important to God means Satan is going to attack and would love our prayers ...

I hope I got my thoughts clear enough because I am so overwhelm with excitement at feeling that I was refreshed with some really strong TRUTH tonight ...

THANK YOU LORD FOR ALLOWING ME TO SEE YOU TONIGHT !!!

READ ... SAME KIND OF DIFFERENT AS ME, Radical, CRAZY LOVE, Dream Giver, THE HELP, Fields of the Fatherless, Sacred, JESUS CALLING, The whole in the gospel, THE FORGOTTEN GOD, Choosing to See by my friend Mary Beth Chapman, and that is just to name a few of my favorites ...

Love the "not enough Bible doin'" comment! Read Same Kind of Different when it came out. Will have to reload on my MP3 to listen to on our trip to Texas next weekend. You're the best! Andy

Wow!!! Would love to get to hear them speak! Read that book this summer on the way home from a mission trip...it was amazing! I cried the whole flight while reading it!

This isn't related to the post, but I just saw Project Hope and one of your shirts on the TODAY show! The orphan message is spreading!

LOVED that book (love all those books, in fact!), and love that your description of Denver is exactly what I would expect of him after reading the book. Thanks for passing it along for those of us who couldn't be there, and thanks for hitting me right between the eyes! Also-- I heard a similar statistic to the homeless one-- there are TWICE as many churches in Texas as foster kids....
