what kid didn’t wish they had a treehouse…

treehouse

how far would you go to get alone with god?

just saying… didn’t you always wish you had a treehouse, or clubhouse, hangout… somewhere that you belong. somewhere that is special to you.

we’re often told to find a special place, and have a quiet time in that place. i was reading where paige armstrong was on tour, and created a little cubbyhole for herself… to get alone and be quiet with god.

what extremes do you go to to get alone with God? he wants our time and our conversation. he wants our daily. he wants to share our burdens and our joys. how far will you go to spend time with him?

James 4:7 (The Message)

7-10So let God work his will in you. Yell a loud no to the Devil and watch him scamper. Say a quiet yes to God and he’ll be there in no time. Quit dabbling in sin. Purify your inner life. Quit playing the field. Hit bottom, and cry your eyes out. The fun and games are over. Get serious, really serious. Get down on your knees before the Master; it’s the only way you’ll get on your feet.

in other news… i was visiting a “treehouse” this weekend… a children’s ministry bending over backwards to reach kids where they want to be reached. when discussing the incoming interns i said i would be praying that they would be overproductive and undercomplaining… and then it hit me… that should be my daily prayer for ME. which reminds me of this… my favorite photographer, david edmonson, always says to underpromise and overdeliver…

what if we were overproductive and undercomplaining… we would always overdeliver! nice!
