Destination Disease

Are you like me and struggle with destination disease? We are so fixated on the destination that we miss the journey. The Christian life is all about the journey.

We want answers, but when Jesus taught he left them with more questions than answers.

If you were in our services today you you heard me say that "I cannot begin to cover the topic of heaven in 45 minutes and I know that I will probably leave you with more questions than answers, but I want to start you on the journey."

We are here to come alongside of you on your spiritual journey, and to be a guide that always points to the road that leads to Him.

So over the next few days or weeks I'll try to point to the right path regarding your questions about Heaven.

Are you ready to go on that journey what could and should be?

Can you see Forever?

Tomorrow I will finish our series entitled "See Forever" by talking about eternity.

Much of our life is shaped by our view of Heaven.

Think about for awhile.

I use a phrase that is poor grammar, but I feel that is accurate;

"What you think is what you be_________".

Insert the words believe, become, then think about how those shape how you behave.

Our beliefs affect our behavior.

It is my prayer that God will use me to push you to that place where God starts to reveal His mysteries to you. May He open our eyes so that we may See Forever.

18 Open my eyes that I may see
wonderful things in your law.

19 I am a stranger on earth;
do not hide your commands from me.
Psalm 119:18-19

"God allows you to go the mountaintop

so that when you are in valley you'll remember

what you've seen from above."

Loving it!!!

Doubly happy, however, is the man to whom lofty mountain-tops are within reach.

The SUN!

My father considered a walk among the mountains as the equivalent of churchgoing.
Aldous Huxley
The sun finally came out, what a glorious Sunday morning!
Wondering what you are doing this morning.


Life is brought down to the basics: if you are warm, regular, healthy, not thirsty or hungry, then you are not on a mountain. . . . Climbing at altitude is like hitting your head against a brick wall - it's great when you stop.
Chris Darwin ,The Social Climbers

It's a cold morning on the mountain...wind blowing around 50mph on the top...hitting my head!!

What a view…

God allows you to go to the mountaintop so that when you're in the valley you remember what you've seen from above.

The view is incredible from up here!
