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?”

Just Obey

Religion says “Obey and you’ll be accepted” but Jesus says “You are already accepted, just obey.” @charlesbillingsley at @thomasroad

I knew when Pastor Charles started in with the Hachi story was the moment I was going to start crying in church. 😢 Man – was is it with dog stories? I’m in easier cryer already but when you start talking about sad dog stories I’m toast! Great revelation to a series of parables I’m sure we’re all familiar with. Thanks Pastor Charles!

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. 🙌

God Loves You

I’ve said it before, but when @charlesbillingsley gives a sermon there’s just not enough paper and ink to get it all down. He packs so much into them! 😅 Another great sermon at @thomasroad today! 🙌🏼

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!

Under the Sun

“When you know God, you are in the land of the dying; on your way to the land of the living!” @charlesbillingsley

This service at @thomasroad is such a blessing to me. Like all Pastor Charles’ messages, I can only capture a little bit of what’s presented but the comparison of the lyrics from songs from the world to the empty promises of money and fame is impactful. I wish I had time to capture every part of it (along with all of the worship students on stage!) but what I did write down is going to stick with me. Is there something you saw that I totally missed!? 😅

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!

No Reserves, No Retreats, No Regrets

“What should terrify us is reaching the end of our lives having succeeded in a bunch of things that do not matter.”

@charlesbillingsley speaks to how to handle a God-given vision! It’s not an easy road for sure but so much more rewarding! Here are my notes from @thomasroad from this past Sunday! There is so much more to this sermon than I could capture here – I recommend getting the TRBC app and checking it out. 🙌
