HABITS?

so, today is Monday... The day after...

Are you ready to put into practice what we talked about? Today is the first day of your spiritual "hang-time" with God. I know all of you are on different levels, but no matter if you are just starting or are looking to improve on your spiritual life, today is the first day on the road to changing your life!!!

Let's go through those things one more time, so you can get on track right!
1. Make time with God a PRIORITY
2. Take the time REGULARLY
3. Hang out time with comfort not GUILT

Remember our relationship with God is meant to GROW! You are setting the building blocks for tomorrow by what you choose to do today! You guys rock and I am stoked about the next spiritual habit to change your life! (but you have to wait until Sunday for the next one, in the mean time learn to cook mac and cheese!)

this series will change your life...

Do you have a spiritual hero in your life? I bet if you asked them they would tell you that being a solid Christ-follower doesn't happen over night. In fact they will probably tell you that they are actively seeking after the things of God everyday!

In the next six weeks (in IMPACT and AXIS) we will be going thru a new series called "Developing Habits that will change your life". This series is based on six principles that will help take you to the next level in your walk with God.

I guarantee if you what you learn in the next six weeks and apply to your life doesn't help you grow, I will give you a full refund and refund your shipping charges as well, no questions asked!!!

Money doesn't grow on trees... does it?

growing pains

Hebrews 12: 7-8, 11

"Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father? If you are not disciplined (and everyone undergoes discipline) then you are illegitimate children and not true sons." "No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it."

It is not easy being a follower of Christ. It is not easy being a leader in Christ's body, but God has called us to do our part. If God chooses to refine us then we must be willing to take the flame. This is what we have signed up for. But I am encouraged, especially through the whole 12th chapter of Hebrews. Because God is a consuming fire and it helps me to remember my place in the Kingdom. And our place as sons and daughters.

Many mornings I try to find the right words
to pray
And I think about the eloquence of my father
And the sincere words of my mother
I think of the curse words of the sinner
just saved

I think of the last words of a soldier
The first words of a mother
Seeing her newborn child
Words seem so easy to say

But, I am struggling with words
Like hand me down clothes that just
don’t seem to fit
I don’t know what to pray to You
My mind just wants to quit

Selah

Spirit moves, Spirit breathes
Dust begins to feel natural on my knees
Because it is where I was meant
To Be
Words do not come from my lips or my mind
But my heart sings easily

It sings and tells You
The things that are true
My heart it prays for love of
others and love to You

I pray with words of Spirit.


-Romans 8:26

C-bizzle and the land of Canaan

Did you guys just LOVE the fall kickoff?!?! We had such a blast and it was great to be able to see so many new faces at Grace. What is so amazing about fall kickoff is that it is not a one time shindig. This is just how we roll from here on out.

I love the people at Grace, because God has given us a vision and you guys just keep pushing forward and running the good race. I mean to reach Orlando we need God-sized dreams and God sized faith! The scriptures speak to this fact over and over again.

 One of my favorite scriptures is about C-bizzle (Caleb) and his crazy faith.(in Numbers 13:30) Moses sends out a scouting party to check out Canaan. The spies come back and give a report that the land is off the heezy (good) but the people in the land were mad thuggish (big and ready to scrap). 

All of the sudden Caleb told everyone to be silent. I can just imagine this young guy commanding everyone to quiet down. Shooshie!!! Anyways, everyone leans in and Caleb says "We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can CERTAINLY do it." 

WHAT!!?? C-bizzle is out of his mind?! But wait, maybe he is thinking via God's economy. It seems way too hard for us to do, but God has much more game then we do. Hmmm, can we do it? God can.

If we desire Orlando to be impacted for God we need to dream big dreams and give all of our lives, everyone! Three services seems like a lot because it is a lot, but isn't God able to do it? Will you be moved to service? 

I ask myself the same question. Do I believe God is able to do it? Will I let go and start trusting God? Big questions... Bigger God.

Thursday Crack-up

Seeing that some people have been stressed out this week, here is a little clip to make you chuckle. I don't know why she is laughing, but it must be pretty darn funny!


2 Corinthians 12:9

9---But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness" Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.----
