So, I know that the Longshore's visited the Crash folk pretty recently. I must say I'm a bit jealous that they have gotten to experience this Eugene, OR place first hand, while I drive my little car around that holds a sticker on it in the shape of Oregon containing a green heart inside of it. That sticker represents me, my heart is green. Not really though, it's probably really purple and red, maybe blue too. My point is, I still feel called to be ministering alongside the Crash wherever you are. Whether that is Eugene, Albertville, or outer space.. I don't really care. It is so cool though to see my growth here, learning that physical places do not matter as much as Spiritual places. I pray that we are constantly moving Spritually, it is impossible to be idle in our relationship with Christ because of how real Satan is. After watching the people in my life and examining my own life I know, I KNOW I am not exempt from falling into temptation.. Sin leads to more sin. Thank the LORD there is no condemnation (Romans 8:1) Amen? So let us keep moving from one degree of glory to the next.
The LORD passed before him and proclaimed, "The LORD, the LORD, a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness, keeping steadfast love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, but who will by no means clear the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children and the children's children, to the third and fourth generation." And Moses quickly bowed his head toward the earth and worshiped. And he said "If now I have found favor in your sight, O Lord, please let the Lord go in the midst of us, for it is a stiff-necked people, and pardon our iniquity and our sin, and take us for your inheritance." Exodus 34:6-9
I've been meditating on this passage a lot. Whoa! God is just, he KNOWS what he is doing and he is preparing us for that inheritance (1 Peter 1).However, we know notta.. At all. His presence is key.. let us go with him.
