I’m so busy right now working on the aesthetic of everything; my blog, website, my house, my life. I keep pushing away what I should be really focusing on in my life because I know it’s going to be so intense and hard and just plain work and I instead just want to focus on the light and pretty and easy.
But at this moment, as I’m looking for the right picture and the right wording for the main header on my blog, I suddenly feel compelled to write and so I’m letting the spirit overtake me and here we go. A few months back I was introduced to a fellow photographer who I ended up hiring to record my promo video – Megan Kelsey Marcus. During our conversations we were excitedly discussing her upcoming nuptials and my newly discovered marital problems. My husband is not a Christian – and my Faith is a huge part of my identity – and she asked me my feelings on being unequally yoked. I don’t know that I’ve ever let it bother me; I’ve always felt that I should lead by example and just be a good Christian and if that leads people to the Lord then thats all well and good, right? WRONG! Something Megan said to me during that lunch really resonated with me and I feel like she was a vessel for the Lord that day.
We are supposed to pray for one another constantly. Pray that everyone finds God, and not only that, but help lead them there, not just by our actions but by inviting them by asking them if we can pray for and with them. Inviting them to church. Inviting them to study the bible with us. In essence, lead by example by leading them with us instead of just doing and hoping they follow along.
“Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit..”
Matthew 28:19 (NSV)
Consider this my invitation to join me in church, at my weekly Wednesday bible study, or if you need me to pray for or with you, reach out to me and I will happily do so.
Go Ye Therefore
