7 Quick Takes: 8/9/13

Happy Friday! I don’t really have much of consequence to share with you today….it was a pretty boring week…but, lets see what I can come up with, here goes nothin’

1.) There was an accident just recently at our church campgrounds; a young boy (about 4 yrs. old) ended up being air lifted to University of Michigan Children’s Hospital. He is in ICU. Please pray for him and his family!

2.) It has been almost two months now and I am still having some pretty bad digestive issues….and I can’t seem to find a solution. I’m very reluctant to go see a doctor, but I’m thinking right now that may be my only choice…..(please note that if a doctor or nurse happens to read this and might be willing to answer a few questions, please send me an e-mail!!!). Okay, that will be the last time I beg for help, I promise!!

3.) We went bluebe5.)rry picking this week, but not one of us thought to take our phones and get some pictures……I will however try to post pictures of the pie, jars of jam, and maybe just a bowl of blueberries, because I know you are all just dying to see them right!?

4.) Our Vacation Bible School is starting up on Monday, please pray for our leadership, our workers, our Children’s Pastor (my dear ol’ dad!), and especially the kids that will be coming! Mom and I are doing snack and Bible memory, Dad is in charge, and we are hoping to have at least a hundred kids (but more would be awesome!). Please pray that lives will be ┬áchanged during this awesome week!

5.) I finished my quilt, but I’m not going to post pictures to this post. I’m going to give my quilt it’s own post later this week……this is because I have not been able to get any decent pictures of it yet, but I’m trying hard to get some decent ones! Look for a post coming soon!

6.) I am so looking forward to our family reunion tomorrow!! We only do this every two years, so it will be wonderful to see everyone! We have family coming in from out of state, new babies to love on, and lots of stories to tell and food to eat! It should be lots of fun!

7.) I’m linking up with Jennifer Fulwiler over at Conversion Diary as I do every Friday. Go check out all the other Quick Takes this week!!

Blessings,

Somos Sagrados

Somos Sagrados…..We Are Holiness

I just got home from a weekend in Indianapolis attending the 28th General Assembly for the Church of the Nazarene, and let me tell you….it was amazing! 20,000 Nazarene clergy and laypeople from around the globe converged on Indy, for the quadrennial meeting of the denominational leaders, delegates, and guests (like myself!).

My favorite part of the whole time I spent down there was the worship services, being able to worship the Lord surrounded by so many different languages, hearing voices lifted in prayer in more languages and dialects than I can count, and the fact that there is something so powerful connecting each and every one of us!

One of my very favorite speakers is General Superintendent, Dr. J.K. Warrick. Dr. Warrick was assigned the topic: We Are Holiness. Guys, this message was amazing! Not only did it completely embody the whole focus of the Nazarene Church, but it was presented in a way that was so accessible to all of us. It was a message on salvation, and sanctification. Heart Holiness. God wants all of us, not just what we are willing to give, he wants everything we have, everything that we are. He wants our plans, our lives, ALL.OF.US. He wants us to surrender everything to Him so that we can be filled with the fire of the Holy Spirit!

If we surrender to Him, there will be nothing that can hold us back from the in-filling of the Spirit! Guys! This is what it’s all about! We are HOLINESS! God wants us to have entire sanctification, heart holiness…this is what the Nazarene Church is about, what we were founded on, THIS…THIS RIGHT HERE is what we believe!!!

WE ARE HOLINESS!!! SOMOS SAGRADOS!!

Blessings all,
Megan

Stepping Into the Jordan

For my daily devotions, I have been reading in the book of Joshua. Today I was reading in chapter three, Crossing the Jordan. The devotional was talking about the priests taking stepping into the water without knowing what would come next, but knowing that God would be directing their next steps.

They followed God’s command and stepped into the Jordan never really knowing what God was doing next but knowing that he would remain faithful and lead them into the Promised Land.

I am taking my step into the Jordan this week; going to orientation at a new school with a new major. I don’t know where God is leading me….whether it’s into a career or if he is preparing me to be a wife and mother (or BOTH). I don’t know where God is leading me, but I’m taking the first step, I’m immersing my feet in the waters of the Jordan and following where God leads. I don’t know what my path looks like but God does. Where he leads I’ll follow! I look forward to this journey, and I look forward to seeing what my personal promised land holds!

“Have I not commanded you be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified do not be discouraged, the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
