Ready to be Used?

I know @thomasroadwas handing out notebooks but I’m still taking notes on the iPad. Great sermon and I love this quote from Pastor @jonathanfalwell; “what could you accomplish if you were simply ready to be used?”

The Problems of Today

We are quick to forget what Jesus did for us yesterday when facing our problems of today! @jonathanfalwell at @thomasroad

Pastor Jonathan spoke of the second (and lesser known) feeding of the 4000 from Mark today! There’s a lot of nuance in this sermon which I always find difficult to capture in these things but it was interesting to hear the contrast between Jesus feeding the 5000 vs. Jesus feeding the 4000!

I changed it up and brought an iPad to church and try to take digital notes live! I’m using the tiny iPad mini and was pretty happy with the process! There’s some ergonomics for me to fix for sure (I press down on my writing instruments waaaaay too hard) but I’m really enjoying the middle ground between the big iPad Pro chungus and the little iPad mini. 🙌

Major in the Minors

My notes from @thomasroad today. I would have made a digital version but my procreate library has taken up all available space and I’m waiting for new iPad to come in. Add to that my favorite pen ran out of black ink and I barely finished this today. Fortunately none of that has to do with hearing a timely message!!

The Danger of Pride

Of all of Satan’s weapons, the one that he wields the hardest is pride. I can’t even begin to tell you how many problems could be solved this very day if we’d just let go of our pride and engage with people in a way that doesn’t serve ourselves. If only we could just be humble with each other.

Great sermon from @thomasroad this Sunday. God bless you all out there!

How To Love

Pastor Jonathan was speaking about the Song of Solomon this past Sunday! I highly recommend heading over to trbc.org to check it out! 🙌 @thomasroad 

Right Place, Right Time, Right Purpose

“Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.” -Esther 4:16 😳

So powerful. When opportunity meets position and purpose, God’s people can do amazing things.

Sunday Notes from @thomasroad

A couple of things – I’ve drawn Esther before but she looks totally different than I drew her here. I’m not a character designer but I’m wondering if I should try to keep the drawings of the characters consistent across my page or switch it up? Kinda like how Wonder Woman can be drawn by many different artists but you can still tell it’s Wonder Woman. I’d love your feedback on this! 🙌

Also – I included my live notes that I took at the building. You can see how things can change drastically when I take a little time to reflect on my notes. In this case, I felt the need to highlight Esther way more than I originally did. 

God bless you all!

Love God Love People

Here’s my sermon notes for @thomasroad today! God bless you all out there!

The Right Way to Make Things Right

Here’s my sermon notes for Sunday morning at @thomasroad ! God bless you all out there!

The Revolving Door of Righteousness

These are my notes from this last Sunday’s service of my home church at Thomas Road Baptist Church.

Pastor Jonathan preaching from Judges and laying out how time and time again we mess up but true repentance is turning away from that thing that causes us to stumble.

I’ve always loved how Erwin McManus describes this – I can still recite (well…paraphrase) this whole part of a speech I heard from him from over 15 years ago:

“Were the boundaries of the garden of Eden so small that Adam and Eve had to stand next to the tree of knowledge of good and evil? Likewise; why do we keep hanging around the things that seek to destroy us? Adam should have swept Eve off her feet and said, ‘We’re building a raft and we’re cruising; the earth is our playground.’”

God bless you friends!

P.S. Usually I tend to highlight the Pastor and notes from the sermon but I realize how much of a role other people play in creating an entire service; I’ll try to highlight them a little more when I can! 🙌

Forgetting the Past with a Heart for the Future

“The God that breathed these words thousands of years ago is the same God of today and tomorrow!” Pastor Jonathan Falwell

Sunday morning at @thomasroad

At the beginning of 2020 I set one goal – to sketch note every sermon of my home church of Thomas Road. This last sketch finishes that goal! Phew! It’s hard to stay consistent but I’ve learned a lot this year and the practice of doing this was definitely worth it. I continue to be amazed with all of the awesome people doing the Lords work in person and especially on social media. I haven’t exactly planned out what next year looks like for this page or for sketchy sermons in general but once I do I’ll let you know. Like always – suggestions are totally welcome!

God bless you all! 🙌
