Yesterday we started our 25th Discipleship program!! With 15 new students and some amazing interns and staff members we hiked Emmaus road, the road where Jesus met two disciples on the way from Jerusalem, and walked with them sharing with them from scripture about himself. Pray with us for these next three months in our discipleship program- for each one to experience the Lord leading them and uncovering scripture and embedding truth into their lives and journey of faith. #lechlcha25#israel#discipleship#faith
“It will feel like ‘this is what we were made for’... and the Holy Spirit is going to lift them into new places, in new ways. There’s a shift coming. Feeing at home, but feeling the joy of pilgrimage.”
Nothing brings more contentment than walking in God’s favor and calling. There is a grace and a ‘flow’ that is hard to describe. It’s rarely easy, but there is deep joy and satisfaction.
I’m thankful for powerful prophetic words from friends and leaders like @ohiowitt They give us permission to soar higher and believe for more. We are called to be uncommon. To swim against the current. To realize the dreams of God.
Our thoughts are with those affected by yesterday's tragedy and their families, we express our deepest condolences. We have great love for our GTA community and we hope for strength and unity amongst all ❤ #torontostrong
Don’t despise your humble beginnings or your rough moments. You may want greater and we don’t doubt that you’ll get there, but keep in mind that oftentimes it’s a process. Show God that you can succeed where you are with what you have right now. Let Him prepare you for your greater and show Him that you are thankful and diligent in the trenches. Remember, there is always a story attached to glory. #GetThat#PonderThat#3inspirations
Yeah, we all fall down sometimes. And sometimes we bury ourselves in the dirt with our hurt.
Ever have those moments in life like..
"Wow, I'm so spiritual & good at being peaceful & feeling balanced & being really good at offering such wise advice to anyone who comes to me & needs it. I'm just so aligned & blissed out. Life is magic." But then, life changes, big things change, & suddenly you're like...
"Oh wow. I was a bit naive before. That wasn't Zen. I was just existing in an environment with no challenges. Life was easy because I was playing it safe. And now that I'm not playing it safe & reaching for my dreams, I'm faced with greater growth, & this Zen vibe can be super hard to maintain." The hidden challenges people face can never be known. And that naive bliss illusion while taking the easy path can be such a beautiful characteristic on some people. But sadly it's not authentic & it wont last. So in order to reach new heights, honesty with yourself is needed. Raw access to the wounds. Digging deeper into the dark corners where the heaviest burdens are hidden is the only way to uncover them, shine the brightest light on them & transmute them.
Unfortunately that also means you need to dance with those wounds, in a room with no light & no walls & no ceiling & no floor & you don't know if your next step means you might fall.
It requires trust in yourself. Faith.
The true test comes when you find yourself in a phase where your patience, integrity & self value are called into question daily like an acused suspect awaiting trial.
When you're pushed to your limit, & stretched to the edge.
Maintaining the values, patience, love and dreams that tug at your soul, becomes a daily act of consciousness awareness that tests your resolve, belief & authenticity.
I don't have any words of wisdom on how to get to the other side, just a knowing that if you want greatness in your life, you must excavate the trenches of your very being to uncover everything that holds you back & weighs you down. Because those wounds once unearthed & brought into the light to be gleaned, become the treasures that will bejewell your dazzling future & enlighten your soul.
All my love.
