Another Dancing with the Stars Outspoken Christian

Recently watched the season finale of the fall 2014 edition of Dancing with the Stars and was quite impressed with Miss Sadie Robertson, of Duck Dynasty fame. Since I'm not a follower of the DD show, I was not aware what an outspoken Christian Sadie was, but she definitely let her light shine on this show. Not only was she an excellent dancer/student, coming in 2nd place, but she was very outspoken about her devotion to our God, and also followed a previous Christian contestant's modesty rules by keeping relatively covered up. Wow, what an amazing example to young women everywhere, as opposed to what we usually see with the likes of the Kardashians, etc.  Here is one article in the secular news about this young lady.

Acts 4:29

29 And now, Lord, look upon their threats and grant to your servants to continue to speak your word with all boldness...

Every day with you, Lord, is sweeter than the day before

A friend passed this story to me. I was amazed by this man's character. Finally, a positive story about an NFL football player.  It is definitely something you do not see often in this world. Take a look here.

Proverbs 3:9-10

Honor the Lord with your wealth
    and with the firstfruits of all your produce;
10 then your barns will be filled with plenty,
    and your vats will be bursting with wine.

"God, get me out me out of here!"

A side story of an incredible inferno of fire this week in Houston from a burning apartment complex (the 5-alarm fire could be seen for miles): a construction worker was rescued who said that he told God, ‘God, save, me get me out of here,” and "Thank you, Jesus!" when He did. A woman filming the burning building spotted him and was also talking to God about his here to see the story.

Psalm 46:1-2 
God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, Even though the earth be removed, And though the mountains be carried into the midst of the sea.

Let Them Praise His Name With Dancing

Wow, the righteous are as bold as a lion, and that's tough in Hollywood. Imagine my delight when I saw on Dancing with the Stars that one of this season's competitors, Candace Cameron Bure, a former child star of the TV sitcom, Full House, made this statement about her participation in the show:

“I’m a Christian, my life revolves around my relationship with Jesus Christ, so with the overall tone of the dance, the costumes, I’m not going to take a backseat, my voice will definitely be heard,” she said.

God bless her. We need more Christians like her who are serious about their relationship with Jesus.

Proverbs 28:1
The wicked flee when no man pursues: but the righteous are bold as a lion.

"All Praises and Honor to God Almighty for Jesus"

Wow, this was a shocker.  Rihanna's mom presenting Rihanna with the first-ever Icon Award at the 2013 AMAs, which reportedly had 12.9 million viewers.  Her mom starts off by saying the following in front of those millions of people watching and hearing:

"First of all, I'd like to say, all praises and honor be to God Almighty for Jesus."

Yes, praise God indeed! Click here.

Deuteronomy 32:3
I will proclaim the name of the Lord. Oh, praise the greatness of our God!

Tips for Jesus

Very nice story about people giving very generous tips in Jesus' name. Give and it shall be given to you. Click here.

2 Corinthians 9:7
Each one must give as he has decided in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

No Match for the Name Above Every Name

I love this story. There's power in the Name of Jesus. On Yahoo News, read about a very happy ending to a gun-wielding robber by saying the name of Jesus. Click here.

Philippians 2:9-11
Therefore God exalted him to the highest place
    and gave him the name that is above every name,

that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow,
    in heaven and on earth and under the earth,

and every tongue acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord,
    to the glory of God the Father.
