Here I share some thoughts on my presently low view of prayer and my quite limited expectancy of what could even be the outcome, were I to be found praying rightly, in faith.
This one admittedly starts out a little slow, but I eventually make my way into the meat of the message. On the heels of the "Follow Me" call comes this reality check of what it may cost us personally. It's drawn from an unexpected place in Scripture - the account of the demoniac, of course found in the Gospels. If you can wait me out, perhaps it will speak to you.
I feel like this episode is fitting for me to start with. This recording examines what it really means to "follow Jesus". Not how to follow Jesus in this modern world or where you are in life but rather a biblical calling that transcends the ages and cultures of men. The call that we've been sensing here is strong, sober and will cost us greatly.
* I record these on a simple, handheld digital device while I'm driving. There is no editing, no reading a script or closely checking biblical references as I go. It is not polished nor perfect and is not created to impress you but rather to get you to think and ask questions.
So here I begin on a new segment of my journey. A lot has been happening in my life since my blog years - in my family and those that we share our life with here in the beautiful mountains of Southwest Virginia. I want to be clear about these "messages" that will land here - I record these on a simple, handheld digital device while I'm driving. There is no editing, no reading a script or closely checking biblical references as I go. It is not polished nor perfect... and if you're OK with that, please feel free to proceed. I welcome feedback on any level about any matter that will be shared here.
