Someone once said, “All days are not created equal.” Actually I just said that. Some days are great, some days are so-so and some days (in the words of Norm from Cheers – look it up if you’re too young and don’t know who this is) “It’s a dog eat dog world and I’m wearing milk bone underwear.” Today felt like one of those days.

But praise God I have people around me that encourage me and speak into my life.¬†Tonight I had my board meeting and shared with my team my day and I’m so encouraged by my leaders and friends! We need people close to us that know our lives and that will speak the Word of God into us. In spite of knowing and experiencing fasting and prayer and the attacks that can come in these times, I was reminded of the battle that is going on during this time of prayer and fasting just like there was with Daniel; a war in the heavenliness, but the answer IS ON THE WAY and we are victorious! So if you’re waiting for an answer in your life too during this time of prayer and fasting take that truth for yourself as well. It’s on the way!

I try to be very transparent in my leadership and life and know…the things that I preach I also need and go after in my own life. I need trusted voices in my life, just as you do as well. Surround yourself with the right people, because there are days where you’ll be wearing the milkbone underwear as well…in those times you need the right voices too.

Praying for you! Pastor Patrick
