God does not call us to live a mountain top life. A life where we enjoy the full pleasures of this world and are solely focused on ourselves. No, he calls us to deny ourselves and tells that if we are truly following Christ then we WILL be persecuted! God calls us to be courageous even in the line of death.

I have been blessed with an amazing group of believers. Here are some ways to make sure we are working together and not hindering each other while serving the Lord together. This list is almost more for me than for you, but I thought I would share!
I went to bed the other night and was listening to an Adventures In Odyssey (I know, I know, way for me to adult). The episode was about Ruth. In the middle of it, this thought came to me.
