The Calm Before The Storm!

I sit here waiting for the moving men to show up and all is calm whil Becca has all three kids.  It has been a cray ride so far and I am excited to see what God and the Navy has in store for me and my family.  Thank you Becca for trusting me to provide for our family and for always being there.   


Sacred Space
Pastor Drew

Jesus gets away by himself to be with the father. 
1. Jesus created sacred space!
It's important to disconnect when we are surrounded by stressors. 
When we get away long enough we then refocus and are able to see what needs to be fixed. 
We are strengthened by God when we carve out time for him!
2. Do you have a sacred space to connect with God?
A space for God to meet you in? To say lord speak to me, I need you?
Rest is important?
It was not just once or twice in Jesus's life it was a regular occurrence.
He wants to speak with you.
It may feel awkward at first but keep going to your sacred space and it will become normal and naturally. 
Are you ready to give God a chance and meet him in a sacred space?  


Matthew 9:35-10:15

We serve a God who deeply cares about the people in his kingdom!
1. Jesus know the needs in his kingdom. 
- as he went through the town he knew what they needed, and this is still true today. He knows your needs, fears, hurts and the king is here to help. 
What we think we need and the things we actually need tend to be different, And Jesus knows the difference. 
(Prayer: is the conversation between us and God but we need to give him a chance to show us our real needs. How many times have we asked God for a bandaid for our needs when he could have heal the whole thing)
2. Jesus meets needs in his kingdom though his people!
God includes us. 9 they pray for laborers 10 they become the laborers 
It's easy to look inward to see if I am able but it's hard to look outward to the one who can provide the skills needed to fulfill the needs of the kingdom. 
See a need ask how can I help, not send someone to help!
3. Jesus equips His People to meets needs!
Matt 10 Jesus taught them and now he is sending them out. 
Don't fear I am with you and will equips you for your journey. 
Romans 8:28 

WHAT IS YOUR STORY? Where is God taking you? How has he equipped you?
