this is it. don't get scared now...

There's a scene in Home Alone where the camera zooms into Macaulay Culkin wearing fatigues and holding a large BB gun as he says, "This is it. Don't get scared now." I stinkin' LOVE that scene because it's a eight year-old boy going to battle with two convicted felons to save his home. He has a battle plan, strategy, and even says a prayer over his microwavable meal before the clock chimes to indicate that the war is about to begin.

Well, that's kinda how I feel. No I'm not eight, I'm not protecting my home from robbery, and I will never eat a microwavable dinner, but tonight I'll be metaphorically wearing fatigues, holding a BB gun, saying a prayer, and quoting to myself, "This is it. Don't get scared now."

As a reminder, I'll be starting the Seven Deadly Sins series tonight. We all know that Jon and Kate are divorced, Jillian had to let go of two bachelors, and the Desperate Housewives of New Jersey are really desperate, so fill yo' mind with some J-E-S-U-S! We'll be webcasting live, starting at 6:50PM. Click here to watch!

Hi Bianca,

Really looking forward to watching this!
There's no need to be scared. Remember...
"God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us."
Ephesians 3:20-21 (The Message)

@Lindsay: I'm glad you'll be checking in from England! How cool is the internet!!!
@Anonymous: Um... thanks? I'm charmed you find me funny, but I really hope you check it out for the time of worship and study. 'Cause really, I'm not funny in real life. Just ask my family.

Oh, and don't worry, you'll have many in the seats watching with joy and suspence as you torch the scalps of evil and tar and feather His lies (love this movie...a Christmas classic!). I'll be praying for you today. Can't wait for tonight! Nay.

B,

HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAH!!!!!

Or Five.

His Jewel said...

ha ha ha I think B's holding and pointing the gun at US and telling us not to get scared. B's not scared. =) SHE IS GI Jane of the Word!

My fav part is when he says "Get ur keester of my property you filthy animal!" Or was that the Western going on in the background of the movie? LOL

I can't wait!!!

I thought the study starts at 7pm? What time does it start?

Tish said...

I'm assuming that is 6:50 pacific time?

Loved your posts about the God of all comfort, as well as the one on jealousy. Just had a bad run with that, and it really took me by surprise!

Passed your blog on to my church's Women's Ministry...would love to have you come talk to us!

I Named Your Dog said...

You'll do just fine. Don't you always? Remember... WWSD?

I was going to take you up on your offer and actually attend in person. But with all that estrogen being concentrated in one room, that can't be good for any man.

So in lieu of actually being there, I'm going to check you out on the webcast. It will be an honor to be the only man in your study.

I can't wait to find out first hand what goes on in those Venusian brains. I will be taking copious notes.

Bianca said...

@nay, julie, christa: isn't this movie the BEST! I quote lines from it all the time :) christa, you have a baby bump and you live in canada, so don't stay up late! it'll be podcasted too :)
@anita: give the girls at NCIC a fat hug for me :)
@sarah and j: you girls have been there from my very first one! thanks for supporting me for three years.
@tish: just say the word and i'll be there! i love sharing the Word to well-fed ladies :)
@inameyourdog: 1. i have your giftcard for naming my dog, 2. i loved the cheesecake, 3. there will be other men there tonight, 4. i'm glad you're watching online, 5. copious is a GREAT word. :)

I love how you are always nervous before a study because I know that you rely on God's strength and not your own! I love Home Alone too!! :)

Brooke said...

I was really looking forward to hooking up and watching via the world wide interweb :)

Bummer, I couldn't get quick time to load. I mean I have quick time, but it would load the webcast.

You will have to give a quickie here. . . if I beg and say pu pu puLEASE really nice like?!

If not, I still get tons of upliftment (man my spell check is going crazy with my made up words. . . bad habit!) with you everyday posts. Love ya! Thank you for what you do!

You look fabulous but couldn't hear you!

I Named Your Dog said...

Rockstar....

There wasn't any sound. It was on at first, but then when you told the sound person that the volume was too loud, whatever he did, it turned off right at that point.

I was really looking forward to it.

Oh well, at least your arms were looking pretty buffed!

Nayi said...

Hi Bianca... I Pray the study was awesome last night I was so blessed with the worship and then all of a sudden the sound went dead :O( I thought it was my crazy computer :O) but I guess others had the same problem.. Looking forward to hearing it with the podcast... God bless those people doing sound ministry pls thank them for doing this for us that cannot be there physically.....OXOXOX

Tired to tune in but could not connect...........bummer. It said click the image to view the web cast but there was no image to click. Oh well, maybe next time.

Bianca, it was awesome, I know you had a full house, but for awhile, i felt like it was only me there in that room and you were describing me and asking me to let God clean that secret room... I was so scared because I was being exposed not just to God but to myself too, also ashamed of me because I know I have to decide whether to follow God or my desires, that I just begin crying...I have a problem which is trusting people and that is keeping me for going with the prayer team, I am scared to talk because I have trusted before and I was humiliated instead.. but your studies have become a wake up call to me…

Bianca said...

I'M SO SORRY!!!!! I don't know WHAT happened last night, but everyone said that the audio failed like in the first ten minutes and the video stream was in delay :( IT said they'll work on it for next week!
PS I gave a shout out to Christa in Canada, Nayi in Jersey, NCIC in Palm Springs, Apple in the Philippines, Kate, Tish in New Mexico... and no one heard it :( Lord willing, it'll work next week.

For those that were here yesterday, wasn't it totally awesome to see over 400 women come out to worship and learn?! Ahhhhhhhhh!!! I can't wait for next week :)

nayi said...
