Since I was born I have lived in 6 different states (and two different times in two of those states). Growing up in a Christian home meant finding a new church every time we moved. I don’t remember “church shopping” for the first decade of my life, but ever since we moved to Colorado I have vivid memories the experience. So now from CO – NM – TN, I have picked up on a few things to consider when you find yourself in a new city and searching for a new church community:
I love the word grace. I love the idea of grace. I have it tattooed across my ribs in a spiral, cursive font. I write it over and over again my my devotions each morning. I am forever grateful for it.
I am not very good and putting it into practice.
Because along with grace I also love justice. I love being right. I am more stubborn about winning than showing grace. (Wow that was hard to write).
During the past week God revealed so much to me about worship. I finished Job in my year long Bible plan (which was a challenge to say the least), sat in regular church services, and listened to Chad Veach and John Gray at our church’s conference. The undertone for me was worship.
In an effort to collect my thoughts and remember the words that stood out to me the most from these past few days I’m posting thoughts, quotes, scriptures, and worship songs here.
