Beyond Me

All of our lives we are challenged to dream.  To shoot for the stars.  You might have even felt a bit of excitement after reading those two sentences.  The challenge is that we often need to get out of our comfort zone to achieve those dreams.  That's the hard part.

In tobyMac's song, Beyond Me, he reminds us that the desires of our heart are so close.  When was the last time you asked God for fresh vision, new perspective, or for something you know you can't do on your own.

Hopefully when you hear this song you will be challenged to ask for the impossible.

The Table

On Monday, my wife sent me a text that I will never forget.  The text said, "Aiden just asked Jesus to live in his heart and to forgive him for the bad things he has done."  I was blown away.  Aiden is 4. He has always asked very good questions about Jesus, heaven, creation, church, etc.  But you never know how much they really understand until they explain it to you in their own words.  That's what Aiden did after watching a Chris Tomlin video for the song, The Table.  The message of the song is incredible, but it is extra special because it makes me think of Aiden's eternity.  I understand he has lots of life to live and many tough decision ahead of him,  But it's comforting to know that at the age of 4, he understands the sacrifice Jesus made for him.
