Easter Thursday Prayer Night

As Easter draws near, I want to try something I’ve been dreaming about for a long time.

The Thursday before Easter is always one of my favorite days with Jesus. He’s taught me so much about intimacy, and purpose and the deep love He has for me through meditating on His Thursday night all those years ago. And I want to share that experience with others.

So, if you’re in or around Austin and want to get together with me and a few friends while we do a night of prayer, connecting with Jesus through His night in the garden, then join us!

Birthday lessons

It’s a fairly normal birthday activity for me: reflecting.  I think about what I’ve learned this past year, or about what I have watched God do.  Sometimes the thing I’ve learned is new information, and sometimes it’s old information that’s worked its way under the skin in a new way.

This year, it’s nothing new.  I don’t know when it happened. I don’t know if it was this past year or the past ten, but I do know – that as I woke on my birthday this year, and looked down at myself, it was with some surprise  – and no surprise at all – that I noticed that I have learned to like myself.

words are hard.

Well, gosh.

It’s been a minute guys. It’s hard to explain why I haven’t posted in a bit.

It’s partially because life is full of things that take the time. It’s partially because many of my thoughts are getting dumped on Instagram these days. (Check out @inprocesscollective to stay up to date).

If I’m honest, it’s maybe mostly because there are new obstacles to writing words on this platform. I start posts often, but they remain unpublished. Putting words out into the world is a risky business. Minds change and grow and words you once wrote become obsolete.

Reflecting and looking forward.

Alright pals.

Here are a few resources to help you reflect on this year and plan for the coming year.

  1. Here is a giant list of questions you can walk through if you’re into that!
  2. I’ve sent out worksheets to all of you on my mailing list (which you can get on here).
  3. If you’re looking for a really intense shot for your relationship with God, here are bootcamp resources.
  4. But, here are a few things I’ve done this year that have been really helpful:

Next 20 days of Advent | And not being believed.

Boy. I tell you what, today’s Advent really took it out of me.  If you’re receiving the daily emails, you might have noticed today’s was a tad delayed.

Today was the hardest one so far, but not in a bad way.  Sometimes a sense of responsibility and the weight of words settles over me and I can’t shake the sense that – this one – this one I want to get right.  This truth is too precious to me to share flippantly.

I don’t know what to say.  I am out of words.  I am humbled, amazed, stunned, leveled by our God who has come to us in the dark of night.
