Tonight I am thanking God for my amazing friends Moose and Dan and our ability to push each other closer to God. But mostly Matthew Joyce and his son Jacob are on my mind. Jacob had a hard week and next month he is having his next big operation so reach out to them and keep them in your prayers. I don't know about you but I'm preparing for rain :)

I just watched Facing The Giants and something really stuck out to me. A guy told a story about 2 farmers that needed rain but only one planted seed. Which one was trusting in God to provide? Without us stepping out in faith and taking a risk, how are we supposed to see God at work in our lives? How much is our faith worth if it isn't an active faith?

Some really cool ideas in this little devotion today.
1. We really need to get out of our comfort zones in order to see God do cool things in us and through us.
2. When we don't think we have enough strength, we may not but it doesn't matter because it's God's amount of strength that matters. And he Always has enough.

I have aways been a pretty non-emotional guy. I like deep conversations and stuff but letting things drag me down hasn't really been my style. This makes it hard for me to understand people that wear their feelings on their sleeves. It's not like either type is better than the other, I just don't know what to do when people are really down about something. Do I give them space do they want to talk about it? Was it something I said or something completely different? Idk, this is bad for a Christ follower to say, but if I'm brutally honest, compassion has never really been my strong suit. I think it's super awkward when people ask me how I feel so I usually just treat people the way I would want to be treated, which is to never talk about it.

There are so many voices telling us what to do and what to believe. Even in silence we can get distracted by voices. We need to learn how to listen to God's voice. It takes a lot of practice and prayer for discernment and still that's only half of it. Once we start to hear him, we need to do what he is telling us and go where he is directing us. It's hard and always needs to be pushed further but that's what it means to walk with the Lord. He promises to be the lamp unto our feet if we let him. Don't be discouraged if your mind wonders off, u fall asleep or simply don't hear him but take time to try. Not once. Not twice. Don't you think he is worth more of your time?
