Connected to Jesus – A Quiet Strength, Part 2
This is not the life God has intended for us. Instead, God invites us to find life and connectedness in Christ. Accept the invitation.
So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness. – Colossians 2:6-7
The Upside-Down Life
The other thing that came right back was the “being a Mom feeling.” Nothing much was really getting done here – just feeding, dressing, undressing, washing, unwashing, entertaining, refereeing, listening, negotiating, coaching, anticipating, teaching, guarding, and eradicating (some) sin. Pretty much took everything I had to give. Lots of sweetness and love but no great sense of accomplishment.
Tell Me A Story
At Celebrate 2018, we’ll be telling stories about the heroes of our faith, our relatives in the Scriptures who’d never heard of God before and yet dared to follow this God into exploits and adventures that revealed their worst selves—and God’s very best.
Connected to Others
I believe there is someone in your life God has uniquely prepared for you to bless. They have been prepared for you and you have been prepared for them. I believe that it’s time to ask God to lead you to that person. Don’t be surprised if it’s someone you already have a relationship with. Jesus is ready to do his work through you. All He needs is your availability.
