Romans 8

At church today, Pastor Josh Matlock gave a great sermon on the passage of Mark 6...when Jesus Walk on Water. Everything about the service today was touching. I truly felt God's presence there, and a tugging at my heart. During the message Josh mentioned another passage, Romans 8. I spent some time this evening reading through the chapter and prayed about how I can change some things in my life and live less of the flesh [the world] and instead live according to the Spirit of God. I encourage you, my friends, to take some time to read through this scripture as well! I hope you too will find this as a good start for the new week and motivation to get on the right path if you aren't already. I know I struggle all the time to make the right decisions, and often fail. But I've been so blessed by this day, with the great sermon, amazing Christian friends that I was able to see at church and have lunch with, and God's Word and Spirit that give me life! I hope that I can be a friend that you need this week and I pray that you will all feel His touch on your life! I love you all and look forward to hearing how God is working in your lives! :) Please, do share!!!

I will leave you with this verse...
Romans 8:38-39
[38] For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers,
[39] nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
