⚡️RISINGS GOT TALENT⚡️ What an incredible night with @pcc_students , thank you guys for not only letting me judge your powerhouse talent alongside the insanely gifted @natebutler & @chidimaubah & @iamsojourner but also letting me share my heart and share God’s word with you. God has called us to leverage all of our talents and influence for His name, His fame and His glory. Continue to live completely surrendered because He’s worth it!! So grateful for the amazing leadership of @grantpartrick & @joebrim and the whole PCC student team. Wow!!
I wanted to hug his neck so bad...
I love these people and I love what God is teaching us as we walk through PSALM 23... “He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.” This is the heart of the good shepherd. His desire for His people is to give our bodies and souls rest and to feed and hydrate our hearts and to satisfy our deepest longing with Himself. Thank you @cbc.college for leaning in and learning to linger, listen and live out. 📷: @dylan_depaul
Last night, the man I call Pastor and one of my closest friends, Ed Newton, joined me on the stage to tackle the difficult and taboo topic of suicide. An overwhelming number of us opened up and sought counsel for the first time after hearing an important Truth: “I am not alone”. Many of us have been attacked by lies for years that we began to believe and got stuck in: That no one cares. That things will never change for us. That the pain can just disappear if we want it to. That there is no point. BUT, We can rejoice in the Truth that He loves us and he has PURPOSE for us all. The enemy doesn’t try to take out useless players—he’s attempting to defeat the warriors, hijacking God’s Greater plan for YOU. So grateful for Jordan Sleed sharing his powerful story of losing his dad to suicide, God’s faithfulness through the heartache and his plea for those who are wrestling with these dark thoughts to please reach out and seek help. We’ve been talking about community the past 6 weeks and we get to put it into practice by loving our friends who are struggling and being honest when we’re struggling too. #notonourwatch SUICIDE HOTLINE: 1(800)273-8255 CBC’s Care & Support: (210) 253-5971
In these past few weeks, God has been teaching me so much about the power of the open table and real community. We all long to be known and loved but far too often settle for being successful and busy. We have been asking ourselves, is there “a better way”? And we think the answer maybe far less complicated than we make it. Open Table. Open Home. Open Life. @cbc.college
