May we bring Glory and Honor unto the Lord. An update on Zac.

Zac, Me, Corey, Mike
Heartland Bible Baptist Campus
Psalms 105:3
GLORY ye in his holy name: let the heart of them rejoice that seek the LORD.
Psalms 145:11
They shall speak of the glory of thy kingdom, and talk of thy power;

Let me tell you a little about what has been going on in Zac's life.
Since he has been to college, he has desired to have strong faith and see God work miracles in his life. Zac thrives on the impossible. He loves to see God move mountains and has full faith that God can do that.
Last semester he began to pray about traveling with the VBS team at Heartland Bible Baptist College. He loves to work with children and is good at it and he also loves to travel and see new places. When he went back to school in Jan, he began praying about what the Lord wanted him to do. While Zac was home for the holidays his grandpa and uncle loaded him up with new barber supplies so that he could continue cutting hair for some of the guys. One day he went to a barber shop with one of his friends and the barber began to talk to Zac about an apprenticeship program and that he could have his barber license in less than 2 years.
Zac called us and asked us to pray and it seemed like an awesome opportunity, because Zac has talked about going to barber school after bible college, so we all began to pray for God's direction.
Zac would have had to stay in Oklahoma City all summer and work as a barber.
Zac started really searching for God's direction, because he really desired to do the VBS, but that would not be posted until Feb 3rd.
He went to the barbershop and told him his desires and the man had him cut a few guys hair to show him what his abilities were. The man told Zac that he was a natural and that he would be a very good barber but the man was a Christian and understood Zac's situation. He told him to pray about it and wait on the news from the college and let him know.

Today is Feb 3rd, Zac found out this morning that he made the VBS (vacation bible school team)
He is thrilled that they chose him for the team. What this means for Zac is that he will be able to travel with the team and get some very valuable experience and he will be able to establish relationships with pastors, so that when the day comes that he needs to go on deputation they will be familiar with him already.
Another blessing with this opportunity is that next semester will be paid for. God is really blessing our family by allowing both of our boys scholarships to go to college.
One more blessing, Zac was hired on at the school, he will be working as a grounds keeper and security. This means that he does not have to pay for gas, have a car, pay for insurance. God took care of it all.
Needless to say, Zac is calling the barber tomorrow to decline his offer, Zac is going to seek the Kingdom of God first.
Matthew 6:33
But SEEK YE FIRST THE kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.

To God be the Glory, I like to share these trials in our lives to point anyone that reads them to Christ. To many times we have our own plans or we try to work things out ourselves, but if we will let go and acknowledge the Lord in all our ways, He will direct our paths.

May God increase your faith as you walk with him.

Psalms 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
IN ALL THY WAYS acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.
