July: Picture Of The Well
"Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.
- Hebrews 12: 1-3
Another month... Another Opportunity To Grow CLOSER to Christ :)
We have spent the last two months in the series Through The Valley and the Lord spoke through the series loud and clear in not only my life, but in countless other's lives as well!
In order for us to follow the commandment... "‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind’; and, ‘Love your neighbor as yourself." (Luke 10:27-28) ...We MUST be willing to be pure in every way
...Every thought, word, song, dance, action, image, love, relationship MUST be pure in order for the lord to lead us out of the valleys we fall in...
So join us in a month of Purity
"We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ." - 2 Corinthians 10:5
We ALL have to fight daily to stay pure, whither it is bouncing our eyes or watching what we say. May July be the month that our communities begins to see the beauty of TRUE change in Christ! :)
I encourage you to challenge yourself in ways you never thought you could... ...For with Jesus all things are possible!
This month let's honor and glorify Christ no matter WHAT we do... From feeding the dog, to feeding the community May we let Christ shine through every area of our lives :)

"And without faith it is impossible to please God, because anyone who comes to him must believe that he exists and that he rewards those who earnestly seek him."
"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."
-1 Corinthians 10: 31
