God moves.

Last night we had prayer and worship at the Puckett's house and as always, God was there. He put some things on my heart to pray about and as I was praying about them Kevin started saying that he felt like he needed to encourage us to let things go-- which was exactly what I was praying for. Coincidence? No way.

Here's a verse that reminds me of our goal as Christians and a body that I just read in Romans:

"May the God who gives you endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with ON
E HEART AND MOUTH you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ." -Romans 15:5-6. I really want that spirit of unity in Cru.

I've been finishing up Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis and the end of the chapter I just read talks about biological life versus spiritual life-- also not anot
her coincidence because that's what Pastor Warren talked about Thursday when he spoke at Cru. The word for spiritual life in Greek is Zoe... and that's what I am renaming my new fish. He'll kind of be a weird reminder to seek out that spiritual life and stay constantly moving in it. (God's the ultimate example of that, of course.)

I'm finishing up Barnes & Noble this week and I will be starting work at Pier1 the Monday after. I'm excited to see what God does here-- He's definitely moved in my friendships with co-workers at B&N. I'm going to start hanging out with one of them, Caitlin, very soon. She's awesome and I want to stay connected to her. Pier1 will be different but a better atmosphere for me. It may not be as many hours and I may not get as much money as a result of that, but 1) I hate money anyway even though it's necessary to live and 2) God will provide for as much as I need. So I'm not worried.

Bring on the changes, Lord. I'm ready.

And I agree with you about the money. :)
