YEAH! I watched Ingrid Goes West a few days ago and I’ve thought a lot about the craziness (good and bad) that is social media. It’s a beautiful business tool but it’s easy to get caught up in the negative aspects. Every once in awhile, I have to give myself a gut check because....YOU DO YOU

| What are we doing |
Any guesses as to what? In short, providing. It what exactly? About 3 months ago I lost my taste for meat. Not sure. Not sure why. You’re looking at the biggest burger man on the east coast. I [love]d burgers. Steak. Ribs. But one day I woke up and the thought of it made me sick.
what does one do when they lose their taste for the game? Change the conversation. And that’s exactly what happened this weekend with these men. We aren’t talking about providing supper.
if I’ve learned anything, it’s that Jesus provides the supper. But not just that. What did Abraham do when he brought Isaac up the mountain? Isaac must have felt horribly betrayed regardless of Gods faithfulness. Imagine on top of that. What does Isaac get? Just spared? And it’s yet Abraham’s promise. That stings! But God provided his own sacrifice. The heart of it is this: Abraham didn’t hold back his most valued lifeblood. God didn’t delight in the sacrifice itself. God delights in all his creation. He delighted in the heart.
Who ultimately provides that heart though? And that’s what I learned this weekend with these men. When I was put in the cornfield face down, I didn’t do that. The Father put me there. And I went to a place occupied by the thing I feared the most. Other men.
But these men embraced me like brothers. And God provided safety, emotional vulnerability, and His truth. What it means to be a man to your partner or friend, to your children or friends children, and what it means to be Gods child. How we entrust these things to the Father. Amen
