"To worship is to experience Reality, to touch Life. It is to know, to feel, to experience the resurrected Christ in the midst of the gathered community. It is a breaking into the Glory of God, or better yet, being invaded by the Glory of God."
— Richard Foster - Celebration of Discipline (via rhworship)
Huge congrats to Mark Trumbo on being selected to represent the Los Angeles Angels at the MLB All-Star Game in Kansas City. I was lucky enough to see and hear firsthand how hard he worked this offseason, and seeing it pay off (and then some) is just outstanding. I couldn’t be any happier for him. He was asked to learn a new position during the offseason, wasn’t getting nearly enough at-bats at the beginning of the season, but never lost focus or perspective, never hung his head about playing time, never stopped battling, and just kept working hard every day.
What a great honor for a guy who absolutely deserves it.
Of course we never arrive, but I find that the journey is where the good stuff is.
I am a teacher, a pastor, a Dad, and a Husband. All of which are opportunities to be a blessing. I am so thankful for all that God has placed in my life and I am continually learning what it means to give it all back to Him.
