SILENCE

This week God‘s been weirdly quiet. I didn’t figure it out till yesterday afternoon when I asked Him “why?”. What I received back was a thought strand that looked a bit like this: 

“Lord, Why are you silent?” – ”Silent” – “Silence” – “Moment of silence” – Click.  I get it. 

As many celebrate a 3 day weekend, God whispered to me silence was in order. This weekend is about honoring those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in defense of our freedom. For those men and women who served so well and for their families.

Will you join me in a moment of silence to Honor them?

We will get through this together.

In His service and at yours.

While serving as the Weekend Experience Pastor at Seacoast Church, I felt God prompting me to share the moments when He would speak His truth into my life through scripture in a way that made sense to me, giving me tangible ways to learn, grow and lead. These promptings turned into weekly emails that I would send my small groups and volunteer teams. I found myself enjoying the process of digging deeper into God’s Word, being stretched by the writing process, and encouraging others in the faith. My lovely wife, Anna, challenged me to begin this blog, so these moments that I have come to call, my “Red-Letter Moments,” can find a home. My prayer is that you will find hope, comfort, and inspiration here, and above all, you will come to know that the God of the universe loves you and desires a personal relationship with you.”
