Remember how God told the golf manager the day before we met that our movie was going to be filmed here. And the Lord used an amazing family we just met to provide a home for us. So maybe since the Lord has told us to "Be Still" this month, perhaps that's exactly what he wants us to do.
When the Israelites left Egypt and Pharos' army pursued, Moses said:
"The Lord will fight for you, and you will not need to lift a finger!" Exodus 14:14 (TLB)
With a pillar of fire and a strong wind to split the sea the Lord did it all! We have great memories living in Olympia, WA for 12 years. We made some lifelong friends and our children lacked nothing. But we were mostly broke and in debt the whole time. It was our Egypt/Wilderness experience. But praise the Lord we are on the move on our conquest exploring new land! The Lord is fighting for us and honoring us as his son and daughters. I am learning how to "Be Still" in this new season by being thankful for all that I have and all that Jesus has already done. How can I honor my family and friends this Christmas season? How can I just be still and enjoy the presence of my children and my lovely wife. Perhaps I need to finish this year and receive my breakthrough for Perfect Swing by not even lifting a finger...

Shreveport Country Club. Then I began commuting and working in Dallas on the new Dinesh D'Souza Documentary, Stealing America, as the Animatic Editor.
Can you spot my red Titleist hat?
While in Dallas, my film investor told me there is further delay in releasing the funding and the timeline is unknown. My worst fear... I did nothing, told no one until my peace returned. 3 days later on Sunday morning I prayed a simple prayer on the way to church. "Jesus, I will continue to wait for Perfect Swing to launch as long as you want me to just tell me where you want me and my family to live as we wait, Shreveport, Dallas or back home in the NW, Portland. By that evening a couple that we just met that morning in our Sunday School class called us and told us that they have a beautiful, furnished, 1800 sq ft, two story loft apartment in downtown Shreveport for us for as long as we need it, rent free. They said, "Jesus, wanted us to have it." Wow, what an answer to prayer! We moved in at the beginning of October and are truly blessed. The front of our home is made of Glass Bricks. I call it my Glass Castle in my city of refuge. Remember we are on a conquest, we have crossed the Jordan and we are conquering land so we can possess our promised land. We are just using Capitalism, not Swords. =)
