Philippians 3:1-11... Into the Unknown! :).. Sing it out!



I just wanted to elaborate on the beautiful scripture we read this morning. Philippians 3:1-11

Paul talks about how there is no human effort that can bring us to God, but that it is a gift given to us because of what Christ Jesus has done for us. And that although Paul, when he was Saul, walked a near blameless life as far as the written law, Paul now counts it as nothing because of what Christ has done - the infinite value in His love for us. And then the clincher: “For God’s way of making us right with himself depends on faith.” -Philippians 3:9. 

And this is where the Holy Spirit... the miracle of the Holy Spirit within each one of us comes to life. Faith being an intangible, untouchable, mystical element is not for us to hold onto or rationalize - the Holy Spirit acts as a bridge for our souls to connect with the mystical... and venture  “into the unknown!” :) yes, I even sang it this morning. 

The Holy Spirit, Jesus’ presence multiplied infinitely because of His death on the cross - given to each one of us. Nourish that Spirit. His Spirit in us. The Holy Spirit is what connects us to God and allows God to live within each one of us. An incredible gift... limitless in every meaning of the word. 

Blessings to you today!

Freedom to Choose.

It’s crazy, but while we live in a ‘free’ country - many of us live lives that speak otherwise. We are bound by expectations and man-made plans. We do what we do mostly because that is what we are told or expected to do... and then something like this happens where we are given the freedom of time... and choices... a blessing most of us are not sure what to do with. 
I can’t help but spend time right now reveling in the truth that we are created in God’s image... It doesn’t take much exploring of God’s creation to see that we have a very creative God. I truly believe somewhere within each one of us, whether it be building, sculpting, photography, painting, planting, music, crafts, writing, etc - we have a desire to create and explore, a sometimes very buried or hidden desire - but a desire... a yearning in our soul. 
I’m so incredibly thankful for a break from the chaos. An opportunity to slow down and connect with God. I pray with all my heart - as a culture - we are able to let go of …

Books for the 2020-2021 School Year.

Hey All! Hope everyone is having a good summer. 
This year we are going to do our book ordering a little different. Last year Bobby and I purchased the books for the kids and this year we are going to ask that each family purchases books for their own kids. If this is an issue, just message me and we have no problem working with you or helping out. It’s about $40/child plus each family will want one of the Genesis guide books for their home. You do not need to purchase a teacher’s guide for the other subjects unless you would like to. 
Please let me know if you have any questions or problems with any of the links. I pray everyone is holding tight to the light. John 1:5 The light shines in the darkness and the darkness can never extinguish it. Amen. 
Here are links to the books you will need. Just choose the grade your child will be going into.
