Happy Sober, Souled-Out Birthday To My Beautiful Bride 6/26/2017


My wife, Jim & Vicki Rinke & I, founded COOL Ministries, Inc. in the Fall of 1999. Sitting around in Jim & Vicki’s living room, we dreamed the dream and followed God’s Holy Spirit in the way COOL would be established. We are in our 18th year now and wow, what a journey and the things God has allowed to manifest are absolutely off the chain. Personally, I remain to be a definite work in progress and I refuse to front myself out to be something, I’m not… I remain broken before our Holy God and I repent of everything in my life, past, present, & future that would relate to falling short of His Glory. Regardless of any and every fault, I love the Lord and I love people and I sincerely purpose in my heart to be an extension of His grace and mercy towards all people.
My wife is such an Anointed Woman of God and I do indeed love and cherish her. I so completely repent before God for everything I have done in our marriage that brought hurt to her life. Because, I promise you, she has definitely been here for me, through it all. I love my wife and I desire to honor her and protect her more than anything else for the rest of our lives…I salute her for the way she has grown and developed in her faith walk, as of 6/26/17 she will celebrate 23 years of uninterrupted sobriety and pursuit of His Presence in her life…Happy Sober Souled-Out Birthday to my Beautiful Bride…..
God bless all of you, as well. You are in our prayers on a daily basis. May God bless and heal you all, everywhere you hurt. Keep looking unto Jesus..

Micah 7:8King James Version (KJV)

8 Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the Lord shall be a light unto me.

Romans 11:29Amplified Bible (AMP)

29 For the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable [for He does not withdraw what He has given, nor does He change His mind about those to whom He gives His grace or to whom He sends His call].

Matthew 11:28-29Amplified Bible (AMP)

28 “Come to Me, all who are weary and heavily burdened [by religious rituals that provide no peace], and I will give you rest [refreshing your souls with salvation]. 29 Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me [following Me as My disciple], for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest (renewal, blessed quiet) for your souls.

John 10:28-30The Message (MSG)

25-30 Jesus answered, “I told you, but you don’t believe. Everything I have done has been authorized by my Father, actions that speak louder than words. You don’t believe because you’re not my sheep. My sheep recognize my voice. I know them, and they follow me. I give them real and eternal life. They are protected from the Destroyer for good. No one can steal them from out of my hand. The Father who put them under my care is so much greater than the Destroyer and Thief. No one could ever get them away from him. I and the Father are one heart and mind.”
