So I have been away from the blog for some time now. After hitting a wall in late May-Early June. I am happy to report that our very own Gil S. who came out to UT in the flesh to show support.
While in town Gil attended our much anticipated Arise Young Men’s Camping retreat. On this annual trip some of my closest friends and I head up into the woods and stay for a few days reading, preaching, and teaching the word of God to one another (with lots of battling river monsters named Jorge and football on the side). I personally preached a message on entering the promised land despite the giants that may be there and the consequences for disobeying God. Then we heard a wonderful lesson on marriage from our Senior Pastor. Next I had the opportunity to co-lead a Bible study lesson on the anointing of God through Christ with the Spirit. The trip concluded with a message on Peter and prayer for one another to reach our God given calling.
This trip really helped me progress spiritually and I don’t know about my friends, but I’ve been on fire for the last week. I’m ready to do something for God, accept my promises from Him. Step out in faith and do something and over all reach my calling. Also, Gil and I discussed a common vision for the Walking Christian site and I’m ready to get back into the swing of things and help this blog get closer to its essential vision of being a place completely saturated with the presence of Christ in every aspect of daily life. Let’s do this thang. Any prayer for my life, or the blog in general would be much appreciated.
