Freeway | Discovery | Luke 15:11-16 | Week 2

September 19, 2017

We have all of the DNA of freedom, yet we often find ourselves in confinement.  Everything in us cries out that we were designed for something more and something bigger and something better, and yet, we look at our lives sometimes, and our lives defined by a fear that we can't get over, a guilt that we can't shake free of, and a despair that seems so prevalent that it defines our everyday reality.  We look at ourselves, we look at our own hearts and our own souls and the desire is in us to go, yeah, I was made for freedom.  All of us know it.  It's a transcendent, human reality.  We know that we were designed for freedom and yet, we also know that there's things in our life that keep us enslaved.  There's things in our life that confine us. There's even decisions that we've made that turn that more and more into a reality....

Freeway | Awareness | Matthew 13:10-17 | Week 1

"I always get excited about a new series beginning and this one is no different.  As I've had the chance to study over the last few weeks and look through, hopefully a fresh lens, the story of the Prodigal from Luke 15, it's once again captured my heart and reminded me of the story that we find ourselves in as human beings.  Specifically, and uniquely, as followers of the way of Jesus.  My hope is that over the next six weeks this story would be an invitation to you back into the greatest story ever told.  Sometimes we need that invitation and we need that reigniting of our faith, so when we sing "awaken my soul," it's not because we've never been awake before, it's because sometimes we get caught in the monotony of life, don't we?  And the every day.  And the pain and the hurt.  Sometimes we need that invitation from God.   That's my intention and hope over the next six weeks...."

STRETCH:  Faith and Fleece  1 Samuel 14:6-12, Romans 12:1-2

{Ryan was describing how making major life decisions, i.e., moving from California to Colorado, was affecting him--- emotionally AND physically.}   It was a Monday and I had my two kids in the backseat.  I had Ethan, then three, and Avery, one-and-a-half, and was driving them to preschool.  I drove right passed the preschool.  I thought to myself, "What am I doing?"  I turned back around---I kid you not---I drove passed it AGAIN!  I thought to myself, "I'm in trouble here!"  I finally got Ethan to where he was suppose to go and I completely forgot I had a second child!!  I went to work and was just about to get out of the car and close the door, when I heard this little voice from the backseat go, "Hi, daddy!"  I've watched on the news the stories of the people who left their kids in the car and thought, "How could you?"  Now I know!!  I know how you could!  I was in another world, in another universe, so preoccupied with the decision that was in front of me.
