Word Became Flesh |Wednesday

Check out my first post to find out what we’re doing with this #WordBecameFlesh challenge.

2014

Here’s what I thought about today.

It’s New Year’s Eve, and I was just looking back on the past year at all the ways the Lord has carried me and my family.   Here’s a few of the challenges we faced together.

  • I transitioned out of a Family Ministry staff position into a Campus Pastor position (something new for me).
  • My wife transitioned off staff at our church and starting working at Winn-Dixie.
  • We moved out of a home we loved in GA and into an apartment just over the river in AL.
  • My wife then accepted a huge job change AGAIN working in the executive office of the apartment network we live in.
  • Our first-born and only daughter moved out on her own….TWICE (very difficult).
  • We launched our first satellite church campus on September 7 (also very difficult).

Yet…

…through all of that, God kept us sane, married, and hopeful.  Trust me when I say that God’s hand was at work in so many of those challenges.  Too many to possibly list.

Now it’s your turn.  Feel free to write in your Bible or in a journal this week.  But if you’re like me and love social media, make a thoughtful post each day.  Be sure to use the hashtag #WordBecameFlesh with your post.  This way we can easily follow where others are noticing God at work.

Here’s what I noticed today.

  • Still no sickness spreading in the home (yay).
  • The Lord allowed me to stay focused in the office and get a TON of work done.
  • I was reminded once again that I totally do not deserve the woman I have for my wife.  I’m blessed.

Now it’s your turn.  Feel free to write in your Bible or in a journal this week, or use social media.  Be sure to use the hashtag #WordBecameFlesh with your post.  This way we can easily follow where others are noticing God at work.

Word Became Flesh | Monday

So, as part of wrapping up my message this past Sunday I challenged our church (and myself) to journal something each day for one week.

Here’s the challenge:

“And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us…”  John 1:14

Journal/record at least one way you noticed Jesus (the Word) in a tangible (flesh) way each day.  In other words, how did Jesus show up and make a difference in your life?

Here’s what I noticed today.

On Sunday two of our kids were extremely sick.  After much prayer from so many people, they are both feeling tons better today.  Not only that, but no one else in the home has gotten sick today.

I give God all the glory for that!  He is SO GOOD.

Now it’s your turn.  Feel free to write in your Bible or in a journal this week.  But if you’re like me and love social media, make a thoughtful post each day.  Be sure to use the hashtag #WordBecameFlesh with your post.  This way we can easily follow where others are noticing God at work.
