Well, after a year hiatus, I’ve committed to start blogging again. My goal is to use this space to cast vision, talk about the ministries Lakeview Baptist Church is involved in and share thoughts about making disciples.
This past Sunday, we had a unique experience at church. We looked at 1 Thessalonians 5:18 which says “give thanks… for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” Alot of people ask the question “what is God’s will for my life.” There’s really a simple answer: Give thanks. And so I stopped preaching and gave people a chance to practice living our God’s will for their life– and give thanks. I set up stations around the room so that people could engage in journaling, drawing, painting, and writing out things that they were thankful for. It was a unique experience.
Be sure to “Give thanks” this thanksgiving! It’s God’s will for you.
