Hey, glad you’re here! Reminiscing and sprucing up a bit on The Bridge today.
If your spiritual side could use a boost and your Christian light a little more glow, check out this new look! Think vintage for this makeover.
Sometimes our Christian lives start looking like a schleppy high schooler. I’m embarrassed I said that, but hear me out.
It doesn’t hurt once in a while to take a look inside our spiritual selves through a fresh, clear lens. Regain perspective and clean up our Christian appearance by revisiting the day God touched our lives.
Shake the dust off the principles that planted us in Christ and the doctrine that turned our lives around and made everything click. Sometimes the original principles and doctrine get packed away for something a little shinier.
We go back to those very-first-walk-with-God moments that we might have (sort of) fallen out of love with—only to fall back in love with our Savior and His teachings all over again! More than anything, challenge yourself to keep moving on this journey, and as Brother Doug Nobles taught one service–Follow the Cloud.
Find the cloud and stay with it. God will take care of you from there. Promise.
Exodus 13:21-22 “And the Lord went before them by day in a pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go by day and night: He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night, from before the people.”
As we’re passing through this world, we meet a lot of people, have all sorts of trials, and experience all kinds of joy. The best thing is that you never have to walk alone—besides the King being with you, God has a family heading to the exact same place as you!
It’s the journey of a lifetime!
So, if you ever feel like you’re going in circles, burning out, or about to quit, let me remind you (as others have reminded me), we’ve come too far and invested too much—pain, tears, sweat, joy, love—to give up now.
Rest on the right foundation.
Look where you came from.
Reach for what brought you here.
Remember why we’re on the journey in the first place.
