Question for you all (whoever you is or are…err..whatever):
Close your eyes, imagine you are walking into a bohemian, artsy, edgy, cool coffee house. What do you see decor and people-wise? What kind of seating would you choose? What kind of coffee drinks would you want to see on the menu? What non-coffee drinks would you like? What kind of music to you hear playing in the background? Anything else interesting you notice?
Please feel free to write whatever comes to mind! This is going to help me a lot!!!
Deep thoughts (I guess)…
A fellow Xanga-er (lol) had some cool things to write about today and I already told him I’m stealing some of it.
Faith isn’t just believing in things hoped for, but it is waiting expectantly on the things God has already promised.
Whenever we take on a God-sized challenge, self-sufficiency is no longer an option.

I’m sitting here in my office just wanting to yell out, “Heck freakin yea!” at these awesome thoughts! I am in the midst of a God-sized challenge. My life revolves around this warehouse project – I dream about it, I pray continually over it, its practically in my every thought, I talk about it at least in 85% of my conversations…something THIS HUGE, I cannot do on my own. Yes there needs to be those people around me who catch the vision and have a heart cry for the lost people in Ybor City…but they cannot do it in their own strength. We, as a group, though stronger in number and prayers, cannot do it in our own strength.
God’s strength is the only way we are going to pull and push through the obstacles, the joyful and the frustrating times and the “what the heck are we doing here?” moments.
Honestly, realizing how, time and time again, I try to do things in God’s strength, I realize its just me trying to do it again thinking I’m allowing God to take hold. I’m dealing with that now. It sucks and, most of the time, seems so unattainable…to be able to sacrifice my self-sufficiency…even when I know I suck and am weak on my own! LOL…oh but we do wait in expectancy because God has walked before us and prepared the way!!!!!! Man…to REALLY think about that…
