What an amazing weekend we had!
It was awesome! Hope everyone is having a great New Year’s week. Here are 4 quick things I wanted to share with you this week.
#1- Big shout out to Jamey O’Connor. Great job sharing the Word of God with us. Loved his points. Very quotable, memorable and applicable.
#2- Since being a Christian there have been times in my life when I’ve made sincere steps forward in my walk with God. It’s always come during times of fasting.
Let’s be clear. Fasting doesn’t change God. It changes us. It quiets our noisy lives so we can hear Him more clearly. If you haven’t already you should start thinking about taking part in the Fasting Challenge starting January 6th. There’s more info on the Real Life Church website.
#3- You are vital in helping us get the word out about the BIG NEWS! Tell everyone you know about RLC’s opportunity to take the next step toward the Vision God has given this great move of God.
#4- THE BIG NEWS. It’s a New Day for RLC! We will be relocating quickly. The first day at our new location is on January 13, 2013 is the big day!
Keep reading my blog and watching the website for updated info as it becomes available.
Greater things are on the way!!! It’s so awesome to be a part of Real Life Church!
Is it just me or does it seem like the week in between Christmas and New Year’s is sort of a ‘no man’s land’?
The Christmas to-do is now over but you can’t really get back to life as usual because New Year’s is on the way. Well at least that’s the way it is where I’m from.
So, from my house to yours… Merry In Between.
Hope your Christmas was as full of joy and excitment as the guy in the video below. If not, don’t worry. There’s still one more holiday coming up.
If you’ve been following my blog since it’s beginning in 2009 you have experienced a lot of changes.
Well here is one more.
We’ve been working on updating things for a little while now trying to recover from a crash which occurred a few months ago. We finally decided it was better to start over.
Here it is.
Here is a chance to start over and keep you updated with all things new.
If you liked some of the old categories and would like to see me keep them up, let us know.
Found this prayer today. The author is unknown.
Heavenly Father, Help us remember that the jerk who cut us off in traffic last night is a single mother who worked nine hours that day and was rushing home to cook dinner, help with homework, do the laundry and spend a few precious moments with her children.
Help us to remember that the pierced, tattooed, disinterested young man who can’t make change correctly is a worried 19-year-old college student, balancing his apprehension over final exams with his fear of not getting his student loans for next semester.
Remind us, Lord, that the scary looking bum, begging for money in the same spot every day (who really ought to get a job!) is a slave to addictions that we can only imagine in our worst nightmares.
Help us to remember that the old couple walking annoyingly slow through the store aisles and blocking our shopping progress are savoring this moment, knowing that, based on the biopsy report she got back last week, this will be the last year that they go shopping together.
Heavenly Father, remind us each day that, of all the gifts you give us, the greatest gift is love. It is not enough to share that love with those we hold dear. Open our hearts not just to those who are close to us but to all humanity. Let us be slow to judgment and quick to forgiveness and patience and empathy and love.
