And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all. See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone. Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:14-18
Small Group tonight was full of acoustic worship, prayer and communion. I have been feeling down physically. Stomach issues and exhaustion. It was good to sit and feel God’s music. Sit in the silence, truth of prayer and take and eat His body and blood. Replenish.
Looking forward to going to play in DC for a few days. I need out of this house. And I pray to God to help me finish strong. I keep asking Him to give me strength and power and peace. But what I’m realizing is He is strength. He is power. He is peace. I just need to ask for Him. And then dwell there.
I think what I love most about SG at the Wilson’s is being able to go to their house. Meet where they are. I love when Calvin plays acoustic guitar and we sing. I love when we take communion at home. Worship. I mean there is a total need for Sunday at Church. but at home it is raw. it is almost like we are rebelling against what the world wants. I see God’s victory when we worship and commune at home. Like the early Church and sadly like in China today. We are blessed with freedom to carry the Word and worship wherever we want.
Live radically for God. Man, I can’t wait to hear about Seminary. I am on fire to meet more people. Go further. Feel the Word breathed into me. To listen. To learn. To explore and do life. Adventure.
End of journal 6.
This time last year I was unemployed, broke, and suicidal.
Today, I just got the keys to my first house.
Give it time.
Needed this today
when you hear people preach that it gets better, they aren’t joking. if it’s not better yet, it will be.
