thatswhatevesaid: about lost souls, tears, and Wednesdays

I can honestly say, I’m not he most honest person.

But, I’m going to be honest with you…

My life changed on August 20, 2014.

I listened, I prayed, and I cried like a waterfall –  It certainly was not cute.

 

The past two weeks, I’ve been attending a connect group at C4.  We have been studying the series called, Soul Keeping: Caring for the Most Important Part of You.  The series was broken down into 6 video sessions, lead by bestselling author and pastor, John Ortberg.

It’s a phenomenal series that realistically digests and guides you through the concept of the human soul, and how these explanations can then be applied to our relationship with God.  Regretfully, I was only present for the last two sessions, and my explanation of the series may not be fully developed, though that was more than enough to change everything!

Last night, what really hit home was the explanation of the ‘slowness of God’ ,

Frederick Faber explains,

“In the spiritual life [God chooses] to try our patience first of all by his slowness… He is slow; we are swift and                          precipitate.  It is because we are but for a time, and he has been from eternity….”

 

 

This post was suppose to pan out differently but, this feels like a nice place to conclude.

 

I’m taking it slow…
