"you wont need gold toe socks in Heaven"

inspiration: Brandon's jokes at Aqua were horribly hilarious.

"i see you're looking at gold toe socks. did you know you won't need gold toe socks in Heaven 'cuz all the streets will be made of gold"
"i see you're walking your dog. did you know 'dog' spelled backwards is God?"
"i'm sorry for pickin' on the asians...."

but on a serious note. tonight at Aqua was incredible (as always).

Susan came out and talked to us about her flood experience. but just listening to her speak was just incredible. she lost everything, but she is still able to praise God amidst all the tragedy and overwhelming circumstances. it's amazing to see the Holy Spirit working through her.

also, Brandon spoke about how we tend to carry the mindset of "it won't ever happen to me" into our spiritual lives and it becomes "i won't ever make a difference on my campus or in the lives of others". but the truth is that He has blessed each and every one of us with our talents and gifts and our spheres of influence.

im always caught in the place where i want so badly to be able to just "know" what it's like to be "called by God" to travel overseas or to do missions work and to share the Gospel with others. i want to have that "missions mindset". but i don't feel like that is where God is necessarily calling me. i feel like He is calling me to pursue my education and to share the Gospel in the "simple" ways. home, work, school, church. volunteering at Grace Community and being involved with Aqua has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. and i believe He has different plans for each and every one of us.

we all have our spheres of influence, no matter how big or small. some at home, some abroad. some in foreign nations, some in the office workplace. and it doesn't matter size or place, it's all for the glory of God.

God is going to do amazing things through Aqua and Grace Community Church, and throughout Clarksville, in general, through the catastrophic flood events of this past weekend. His glory will shine in ways big and small throughout the community and i am SOOO looking forward to being able to serve others :)
