To live in the shadow of the cross is to embrace uncertainty, risk, and weakness.
I’ve lived right next to Colori Kitchen for over a year and still haven’t tried it. Always a wait, never a reservation open and Legs claimed its overrated.
Let me tell you what else is overrated. I got excited to see they have coupons yet apparently FOR ONLY AN HOUR?! Who does that?!
Are we getting 15% off to make others think the restaurant is busy for lunch because if they walk by they’ll see a rush of people trying to redeem their coupon and scarf down some spaghetti in 60 minutes?
Wow. LA, you’re killing me.
Been craving waffles and attempting to getting a waffle maker too.
Remember the time where I was just hours into Madrid and the immediate rush of discovering another part of the world came flashing through in seconds? Yeah, take me back.
Madrid is a place that in a pass life, during a youthful age, I studied abroad for college. It’s just one of those places where you HAVE to live there for just a minute. My thoughts exactly for London too!
Let’s add this to my future child’s bucket list. I’ve got to live vicariously through someone! They will thank me later.
Last Sunday’s sermon at RealiyLA.
Amazing! Pastor Tim Chaddick is onto something…he is exhorting, encouraging and rebuking Christians who are going through the dry valley. He says that its through this valley we learn the most. We learn to put all the passages and truths of his Word to action. That while we are being challenged to stretch our faith in the valley, Christians tend to get tempted to act like “functional atheists”.
It’s such a good reminder and rebuke for me. Pastor Tim reminds us that God has called us to where we are right now by no mistake. That He already knew why we were needed in that area and that need isn’t just about us, but about others involved. We are not to focus on our situation, but to take a step back and see the bigger picture. That God called us there, will take us out of there in His time and that we are to put our faith to action.
God, please bring all those truths and reflections to my heart. That I would take them to heart and that I would place them into motion. I know exactly what valley I am in and I know that I, too, have been tempted to play the “functional atheist”. Help me to rely on you alone.
