    Michael Dwayne Vick was a professional football player for the Atlanta Falcons. Terrific stand-out player

    who set records for performance, and the financial arrangements of his contracts, and commercial product

    endorsement deals, but he got caught in things he wasn't supposed to be doing. Now, he's beginning to lose

    property, reputation, fame, cars, houses and gaining debt and constant mockery. Doesn't his story sound a little

    familiar? His story sort of line up with Job's life. Sometimes, when it seems that everything is going wrong, and

    you're loosing everything, you might ponder to God "Why is this happening to me?" It might seem like this is the

    hardest time to look for God, but its the best time to seek his face, and the Kingdom of Heaven, and still trust him

    despite the multiple dilemmas. Trust God in this time and period, and watch Him work your blessings out of the

    impossible.

    Hello from Denton

    Many may not know it, but I have transferred from Oral Roberts to

    the University of North Texas this semester. I am pleased to tell you

    that I am enjoying my experiences away from home. It has been a time of

    spiritual growth and maturity. I always keep my New Life family in prayer

    because I know that God has great things for us. Even though I am

    well away there is still no place like home.
