this is the sermon series we are doing at ignite for the next 6 weeks.

chad has chosen 6 different students to pick a movie that impacted them & then they speak about it.

last night a sophomore talked for about ten minutes about & encouraged us all from the movie, "chronicles of narnia"

so good.

the one word he choice to talk about was called "CHASING."

i think it was no accident that the night before i started a book & the first chapter all it talked about CHASING God.

it doesn't matter that i'm a busy mother, have a dirty house, floors that need to be swept, dirty dishes full in the sink, laundry to be put away, children not obey... CHASE God first & all other problems will seem small because i first had time with Him.

last night the student's words were simple, but motivational.

and challenging.

i've known it for like forever that God wants us but it stuck last night & that one word... CHASING i can't get out of my mind.

this is what God wants... He wants us to CHASE Him. He wants us to be passionate about Him & for Him.

so a new journey has begun today... will you begin to CHASE God too???

I would have to agree with you. My goal this year was to do a daily devotion and spend time studying the word (CHASE after God) and the few weeks I have been doing it things just seem so much better and the big problems no longer seem so big. The days I don't do it well that's a different story, I get attacked from all sides it seems! So basically, what I'm saying is I choose to CHASE after God even when I don't feel like it.
