Wild and Crazy

A Test of Commitment

Divine Sufficiency

2 Cor. 5:4-5

    For indeed while we are in this tent, we groan, being burdened, because we do not want to be unclothed but to be clothed, so that what is mortal will be swallowed up by life. [5] Now He who prepared us for this very purpose is God, who gave to us the Spirit as a pledge.


That you would be able to trust in God’s sufficiency when you feel you are unable to do anything worthy on your own.

Something To Think About:

In what areas do you feel inadequate? How has God proven His sufficiency  to you in the past?

Rebuilding The Wall

Neh. 1:3-4

    They said to me, "The remnant there in the province who survived the captivity are in great distress and reproach, and the wall of Jerusalem is broken down and its gates are burned with fire."

    [4] When I heard these words, I sat down and wept and mourned for days; and I was fasting and praying before the God of heaven.

In What areas does your family need rebuilding?
