If anyone knows where i can get a copy of the Leviticus series that Rob Bell did a few years ago, please let me know...
ps. i already emailed someone at Mars Hill and they said that teaching is no longer available, so if you know of anyone who already has it, that'd be great. thanks.


So then,
men ought to regard us as servants of Christ and as
those entrusted with the secret things of God.
I Corinthians 4:1

This has been one of those concepts that i am still working to grasp.
Being entrusted with the secret things of Him.
A friend said once that the things that God speaks to us as individuals are to be kept as precious secrets like those things spoken between a husband and a wife.
And i really struggle when i have something so huge on my heart-
But i'm learning that it needs to stay between He and i.
And i'm sure there will be a day when i can share much of it all, but today is not it.

secret |ˈsēkrit| adjective
:not known or seen or not meant to be known or seen by others

So- i am keeping some secrets
And thinking about it all and praying about it all
And asking Him to keep me aware of where my heart is.
And i'm thankful that i have friends who keep secrets until they are released from them and thankful that God has a plan and timing that are impeccable.
Yet, i know that the more i delight in Him the more satisfied my heart will be.
And so delight becomes my desire-
Whether it includes the things that i think i want or the things that
He knows i need.

It has been absolutely incredible to see the ways that God has moved in my life.
And all this simply because I asked Him to.
And I only asked Him because I was so thirsty for what is Real and Lasting.
And I was only thirsty because He made me to be.
Because He loves me that much. (and you)
And I often can’t believe this.
And what’s more, when I get the chance to sit down and reminisce on all of the details of how He has brought me to where I am, it just confirms all the more that this path that I am on-
the one on which I am running after the only thing that will ever matter-
is exactly where I want to be.
And this is where I will be until the day I see Him.
The One Whose grace was and is completely sufficient.
The One Whose blood has replaced the garbage that I have clung to- and I’m sure much that I will cling to in the future.
I just look back and think of all that He’s done.
I used to live for that day when I would begin a relationship with a man who would define me.
This is what the world told me to live for-
identity in people-
and I just may have followed suit.
This relationship would have been my trophy, my idol, my prize.
I remember clearly- a year ago- I couldn’t wait to be in a relationship so that I could post it on Facebook and watch the comments, questions, and congratulations roll in.
And I sit here now- completely single, and so incredibly thankful that He, in His wisdom, protected me from that which I wanted so badly, that which I thought I knew so much better than He.
He has removed so many things from my life.
And He has replaced them with the honor of knowing Him- so very little at this point, but nonetheless, the most precious gift I could ever have.

thinking about a series of interesting things these days
moving- and all the changes that will come along
school- and the future of it all
fear- and how desperately i want to not care about it
love- and how i am hoping it will define who i am and what i do

[will finish this later...good night]

You need to watch this clip.
It is so good I considered posting it under a 2-word title,
but I just couldn't take that step.
Maybe some day.
This is about the emerging church.
A little somethin by Mark Driscoll.
Watch- and comment please-
I'm interested in what you think.

There is no height or depth
Neither life nor death
That can take me from all that I find
Here now in Your Glory Lord

No other powers or love
The things of now or to come

There's nothing on earth in this life
That could ever separate us Lord

Your Love is never ending
To your hands we surrender
Where all our sins are washed away
Your Grace beyond reason
Has paid for our freedom
We're made alive in You

We run to Your Throne
Where we belong
Every heart will sing
That Jesus is Lord
Casting all else aside
For the joy of our Christ
Let Your Glory fall
Our hearts are filled with Your Fire

No other powers or love
The things of now or to come
There's nothing on earth in this life
That could ever separate us Lord

"Where We Belong"
