This picture says it all. God makes things beautiful for a reason. The colors, the way the water lays upon it….Little things we don’t usual notice.

Today while your out doing things stop once in awhile and take in what is around you, and know that God made that just for us. So much beauty out there we have yet to see.

Enjoy your day!

He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.

Isaiah 40:29 NLT

Tonight at Lifegroup was exactly what I needed. My spiritual fire was getting small and I needed food to feed that fire, and tonight was just that. After Shane’s message we broke out into groups (guys and gals in seperate groups) and guy time was just what I need. To be able to completely open up and just pour out everything on the table without fear or judgement is amazing. God says in his word that before we can confess to God our sins we must confess before man, I would suggest ALL of you that are NOT involved in a Lifegroup to seriously join up with one! Doing life with a group of people you can rely on for support in all aspects of your life is where its at! I feel so blessed to have met guys like Shane, Dan Stephens and Zeb.

People in a lifegroup will live life with you and get to know you and help you, but you have to be willing to give everything your taking. You can’t listen to everyone else pour out their struggles and lie about your own. Do not fear judgement in a lifegroup, it is a loving bunch. Lukewarm Christians really would not feel welcome in a Lifegroup environment.

Revelation 3:16 says, “So, because you are lukewarm, neither hot nor cold I am about to spit you out of my mouth.”

I love you all!
