Okay, so my church is having a two year campaign right now.  I am all for reaching people but is causing me to really question some things and is making me dig for answers and will cause me to talk to people on the leadership team.    I am more cautious.  I guess I have had some of my friends really ask me some good questions and is causing me to think for myself and not take things at face value.   I pray that God will work in my heart to do what he wants me to do instead of what others are doing.

Spiritual Growth

12 02 2007

Okay, so I am reading the book Captivating for my Life Group.  I am going to church but the real growth is happening in a mentorship relationship that I have within my Life Group.  I never knew how slow my growth has been until I am surrounded by these 7 women every Monday night.  They  bring something different to the group and for that I am blessed.  I have found no matter how wonderful and deep the sermons are within the church on Sunday and Wednesday – there is NO accountability to what you learning unless you are in relationship outside of the service.  I am accountable to Scripture Memory and looking at verses during the week.  I still have a ton to learn and a ton to apply.  Just something that is on my heart.  Am I truly sacrificing something  I love for something I love more?

Exciting Times

4 02 2007

I am truly excited for the game this Wednesday between KSU and KU.  KSU is over acheiving…the team is doing things incredible and we have a chance to actually win the Big 12.  A & M is a great team and hopefully Texas will know them off tomorrow on Big Monday.

Westside is doing a series on American Idols – the whole thought is “You shall have no God’s before me.”  It has taken a look at Celebrity Worship, Money, and today the message was on Beauty/Sex and he spent a lot of time talking about Internet Porn which has impacted a lot of peoples lives.  He gave some great steps – read books, talk about it, and also have accountability – I think the two Talk about it is important – the more it hides the more power it has over your life and accountability – until you are accountable you will most likely fall – two is better than one.  It has been a good message series so far…

God is working in my life and I am grateful.  I have had some pretty calm weeks – have you noticed the more you pray, the more you hand things over to God, the more you rely upon the PROMISES of God the more peace you have in your life…that’s true in my life right now…
