Trusting God


“God does not exercise His sovereignty capriciously, but only in such a way as His infinite love deems best for us.” - Jerry Bridges

trustinggod.jpg Over the past few months, Rick Holland has been leading the Crossroads leadership team through Trusting God by Jerry Bridges. If you have not read this, I would highly recommend it to you. It’s a Bible study on God’s sovereignty that unpacks the practical application of trusting God when circumstances can’t be explained. The first chapter alone is worth the price of the book. It has been particularly encouraging to Lis and me over the past few weeks. I am sure we will be coming back to read it again and again for many years to come.

You Are What You Worship


“A person will worship something, have no doubt about that. We may think our tribute is paid in secret in the dark recesses of our hearts - but it will out. That which dominates our imaginations and our thoughts will determine our lives, and our character. Therefore, it behooves us to be careful what we worship, for what we are worshipping we are becoming.”

- Ralph Waldo Emerson
