Head In The Clouds

I like clouds a lot and God the Father knows this. It is sort of hard to fathom why the creator of the universe cares that much about “our details” but he does. He knows our likes and loves and he often meets us on that level. In the same way, He cares about all the rest too. The good, the bad and the ugly. He wants us to invite him into all those areas.

Do you want exposure to eternal things? If you don’t get anything else from this story, get this…we can invite God into all of “our details.”

Unwavering Father

“Hide away, in wonder, wild,
These are times, quiet and free.
Father, present with his child,
Space and time bend a knee.

 

Storms and danger, troubles piled
These are times, quiet and free.
Father, present with his child,
Eternal things for all to see”

A path to cloud nerdiness began almost a year ago for me.  Don’t be fooled by the interest though. I started paying a bit more attention the “ordinary things” like clouds. Undoubtedly, my head has been in the clouds but it’s not just the clouds I’m looking for. It’s this thing between me and Papa. Our thing…

To Our Fellow Knights

To our Fellow Knights,

‘Tis the season to be jolly…and we pray that this is true for you and your family. At the same time we cannot forget that a war rages around us especially during the time when we are worshipping the birth of our savior. Is it any surprise how the enemy hates Christmas, Bethlehem and anything that reminds him that he has lost and Christ has won? We encourage you to read the Christmas Story from the gospels, and then read Revelation 12, which brings to life the Story behind the story. You will find this:

“Then the dragon was enraged and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring-those who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.”

(v17)

That is who you are, one that holds to the testimony of Jesus…and you will win! “He who overcomes will inherit this, and I will be his God and he will be my son.” (Rev 21:7) Isn’t that great! You are overcoming and you will inherit all that God has promised.

BCNW is committed to continuing our fight to live out the mission statement of Christ as described in Luke 4: “…to preach good news to the poor, proclaim freedom for the prisoners, recovery of sight for the blind, release the oppressed, and proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.” We will continue our journey with you to live out ourselves and share with others how they really do have a good heart, to rescue and set men free, walk intimately with Christ, fight off the enemy, and guard our hearts.

Take the time to feed your heart this season.

We’re really excited around here! An anonymous donor gave us a gift to buy our own audio/visual equipment and we were able to take advantage of a great deal on new video equipment. Our goal is to also acquire the audio portion of a complete A/V package, but we are about $5,000 short. Your year end gift will help us to meet this goal and continue to pursue the hearts of men with you.

As always, please check our website at Bootcampnw.com for registration, giving, or to tell us how your journey is going. May you experience greater intimacy with the Father and receive his great love for you during the season of our savior and commander Jesus Christ’s birth.
