Shake it Off

Kick the dust offโ€ฆ.or ๐ฌ๐ก๐š๐ค๐ž ๐ข๐ญ ๐จ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ. Whatever phrase you use, if the environments, people, and habits in your life arenโ€™t encouraging you to be more like Jesusโ€ฆ๐ฌ๐ก๐š๐ค๐ž ๐ข๐ญ ๐จ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ.


Jesus said it like this:

โ€œAnd if any place will not welcome you or listen to you, leave that place and shake the dust off your feet as a testimony against them. MARK 6:10-11


He says no matter what stands in your ๐ฌ๐ก๐š๐ค๐ž ๐ข๐ญ ๐จ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ...who knew Jesus was the OG of that catch phrase?


But really, when you are a ๐๐ข๐ฌ๐œ๐ข๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ž (not when you go to church because everyone else is and itโ€™s a feel good for your family). When youโ€™re a ๐๐ข๐ฌ๐œ๐ข๐ฉ๐ฅ๐ž, and your thoughts, your life and your narrative is about Jesus, there will be tons of things you have to ๐ฌ๐ก๐š๐ค๐ž ๐จ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ.


Thereโ€™s a ton of things that church leaders worry about - finances, buildings, attendance, what does everyone think of the childrenโ€™s ministry, etc. But the questions that keep me up at night:

Are we holy?

Are we obeying God?

Are we making disciples of all the world?


Right now our world is broken and we have work to do. So letโ€™s get about the business of saving souls and shake the rest off. In the grocery store line, the doctorโ€™s office, school drop off lineโ€ฆcan we get rid of the biases, the attractions and just point to Jesus?


Church events are great. Being right about things and having things โ€œour wayโ€ feels good. But when those things are why and when you follow Jesus, then you gotta ๐ฌ๐ก๐š๐ค๐ž ๐ข๐ญ ๐จ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ.


If these stories are real, if this Jesus is real, if the resurrection is realโ€ฆ then weโ€™ve got to ๐ฌ๐ก๐š๐ค๐ž ๐ญ๐ก๐ž ๐ซ๐ž๐ฌ๐ญ ๐จ๐Ÿ๐Ÿ.

When my 3 big kids were younger, I religiously made freezer meals. There was always something made and ready to go for dinner. It made my life SOOOO much easier. We rarely had to go through a drive th



Hi, thanks for stopping by!

I'll admit it- I'm a snob when it comes to certain things... coffee, the way clothes fit on my 30-something fluff, lashes and anything beauty that makes my life easier.
