"What Happens When Women Say ‘Yes’ to God” by Lysa TerKeurst
Adventure! That's one of the things I'm looking forward to on our upcoming holidays. I could have adventure everyday if I WANTED it. A God orchestrated adventure - "where God uses each circumstance, each person who crosses my path and each encounter I have as divine appointments.” This adventure takes no planning on my part.
"What Happens When Women Say 'Yes' to God" by Lysa TerKeurst is a book that challenges us to be obedient and live God's adventure for his glory. The truth is that when God enters our lives it means radical "changes in our plans perspective and our personhood. AND MOST OF US HATE CHANGE. In reality, the very act of trying to protect ourselves from change is the very thing that makes our life the boring mess that it is.”
So how does one move from boredom to adventure? Daily adventure? Real adventure? Meaningful adventure? Lysa TerKeurst says that there is only one requirement and that is "Whatever God says do, do it." Sounds easy enough! But then I get wondering - how do I know whether God is speaking to me or if it's just my own good idea? I was hooked when Lysa outlined five questions to ask to differentiate between God's impressions or my own ideas.
This book is stacked with powerful sentences that challenged my fears, attitudes, laziness, unbelief and tiredness. This book encouraged me by giving me the freedom to have a spiritual journey that can look different than anyone elses. I wish that I could say 'been there, done that' but this is part of my spiritual journey. "While saying yes to God does bring blessing it's not easy.”
Start your adventure.

GO5PEL Sermon Series
When we talk about the gospel, in its purest form we’re talking about the good news concerning Jesus Christ and the salvation from eternal punishment that he offers to those who are separated from God by their sin. That’s a bit wordy, but it captures the essentials.
In this series we take time to identify and explain five words that capture the heart of the gospel of Christ. Our theme for the year is First Things and the Apostle Paul said in 1 Corinthians 15, “I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received…” and he proceeded to outline, that’s right, the gospel.
GOD, Sin, Substitution, Believe, and Life are the five words and outline the five messages in our GO5PEL series.
Available from the Harvest bookstore.
Vertical Church by Pastor James MacDonald
When did many of today's churches become so "horizontal"---where reaching people became a greater concern than worshiping God? In this transformational resource, MacDonald challenges pastors, ministry leaders, and disciples to go "vertical" in their approach to Sunday services and embrace the truth that the church is only about the glory of God revealed in Christ.
When Christ becomes anything less than our life’s passion and pursuit, we lose focus. We grow stale. We head down a path that is horizontal and hopeless. Vertical Church is the change that changes everything.

“Worship is mind, emotions and will engaged in whole-person ascriptions of worth. Nothing brings glory down in church as quickly and as powerfully as when God’s people unashamedly adore God’s great son, Jesus Christ.” -- James MacDonald
