WITHIN EACH OF US are dreams, plans, goals, and visions. These things may be right on the cusp of happening, or they may be buried under years of neglect.
Some people believe that money is the ultimate resource needed to reach goals. Money, however, is a secondary resource. The primary resources we need to reach our dreams are time, energy, and attention. When these three are working in the same direction on a goal, big gains can happen.
Time is flying by for all of us. No one can add more time to his day, week, or year. We can only manage time better.

THE 2016 Masters Tournament held at the Augusta National Golf Club will long be talked about. Jordan Spieth—one of the world's best golfers who many thought would win a second Masters championship—choked on the 12th hole, scoring a quadruple bogey. For those who don't follow golf, that's bad. Really bad.
Being a top player in his game, Jordan probably could have come back and won. But after he choked, he just fell apart.
Life can be this way. Sometimes it seems as if one mistake changes everything. Some people recover—others don't.
I've noticed that when it gets close to summertime, people start messing up. I believe that's because when the weather gets warmer, they start missing church and then quit coming altogether.
What a Week!
CAMPMEETING 2016 was packed with energizing praise and uplifting preaching. Each message built upon the last. Everyone attending and the thousands who watched online were shown how to live victoriously in the last days. At Summer Blitz for youth, revival fire was kindled in the hearts of young people. And God moved mightily in the Rhema Kids Campmeeting services. Children's lives were transformed as they heard the Word in fun and engaging ways. From youngest to oldest, people were strengthened, encouraged, and uplifted.
HERE'S A SAMPLE OF WHAT CAMPMEETING 2016 SPEAKERS SAID.
// Kenneth E. Hagin
GOD CAN ONLY MOVE on this earth as His people ask Him to move. God is longing today for someone who will make up the hedge and stand in the gap before Him and intercede for souls in every nation. That's the scriptural way to win cities and nations for God.
30 I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and STAND IN THE GAP before me for the land, THAT I SHOULD NOT DESTROY IT: but I found none.

"The Lord will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail."
—Isaiah 58:11 (NIV)
AS THE LEAVES settle around us, we hardly realize that we have settled into the routine of fall. This is the time of the year when families run on back-to-school schedules, football games, and crock-pot dinners. I love the fall season. The weather is beautiful in Oklahoma. The wind seems to die down, the temperatures are nice, and the leaves turn beautiful colors.
