When I sat down this morning, I asked God to place words on my heart that He would like for me to explore further and write about. Over the course of a few minutes, the following words came to mind. I wrote the down (actually I typed them). Some words I currently have no clue why I wrote them down. Some words came more than once (thus the x2 or x3). While others came connected to another word or phrase (thus “plus” noted in the parenthesis…).
After I felt like the words were done (for now), I reorganized them as you see below with some loosely assigned headers. I did this to help me understand how all of this might fit together going forward. I have no intention of following the order you see below. Rather, I will allow God to lead me as to when I should write and what I should write about. I do believe that those topics/words I felt compelled to write more than once will be the focus of some of my near future post.
Faith tended to dominate my topic of words, so I have listed those words first. In addition, salvation, temptation, and focus were the first three words on my paper. Not sure if that really means anything or not.
With that said, following are my brainstorming words in no particular order:
Mission trips (Africa, KCK, KCMO, homeless, food kitchens, volunteering, traveling the world, home)
Sharing & Getting out of my comfort zone/box
Grace X2 (plus Salvation)
Prayer x3 (Prayer x3, plus Talking with god, Temptation)
Visible and unseen signs of Christ
Holy Spirit and God Tingles (plus God things)
Small groups (men’s groups)
The Big C church
The little c church
Length of sermons
Traditional vs. non-traditional services
Focus (multiple times)
Living life with a non-Christian
