Sometimes it is easier to focus on the things I don’t have. But I’ve found that’s no way to live.
Instead I want to be someone who constantly feels blessed. Because in all reality I have everything I need, and more. So in honor of the season of Thanksgiving, I have decided to publicly express my gratitude this week on my blog for some of my many blessings.
I am thankful for CrossPoint Community Church .
I went through a phase when I wasn’t sure about the importance of church. I have said stupid things like, “I am a spiritual person, I’m just not super religious.” I truly believed I could just do my thing with God and I didn’t need to be “plugged in” to a religious body. But honestly after a few years of that kind of thinking, I discovered I wasn’t really even doing “my thing with God.” I was really doing my thing with me. And when I did find myself back in church, I couldn’t get past the vast distance between me and God. I wasn’t adequate. All I could see was sin, my sin.
And then I discovered CrossPoint Church.
A church where people live out the founders’ original vision. A church where people are radically devoted to Christ. A church where people are irrevocably committed to one another. A church place where people are relentlessly dedicated to reaching the unchurched.
A church where believers are stretched to live faithfully. A church where religious lies are questioned. A church where people are striving to “be the church.” A church where character is valued above comfort. A church where pastors are not perfect and don’t claim to be. A church where lives are changing. A church where I am changing.
I have been abundantly blessed by CrossPoint Church.
