Busy, busy, busy. Have you ever been in a spot spiritually where it was clear that God just wants you to sit and wait and listen and learn? Maybe to stop the busy-ness and take a chill pill? We all want to be in charge of our lists of things to do and our days but at times God screeches the brakes and says to stop and be still. That is good. Maybe we might be missing what we are to be seeing and what we are to be about. These things I am pondering and thinking about.
Intellect and the transferring of spiritual information alone will not disciple people.
Church will happen if we make disciples- not the other way around.
There is an eternal difference between knowing about Jesus and knowing Jesus.
The key is not more evangelism, but more discipleship.
These thoughts are strong and I am thinking about what our lives are really to look like.
Basically though, all we have is today. Today to ask God to help us be Jesus with skin on to the people around us. Today I want to speak His name and bring healing and hope. Today we need to have Him so thickly on our minds and in our hearts that we can't help but cry out for joy and spread the good news.
Just thoughts. Thank you for listening and thinking with me.
Want alot of random pictures of life lately? Well...here you go...
On our spring break weekend we drove through Brady,Texas where we first lived after getting married. This sweet little house was our first home. Such great memories of the first few years of life with my best friend.
I guess even cute little red haired poodles like to rough house sometimes. Hilarious.
