This weekend we concluded our open series and my husband saved the best for last!  He taught on Mark 9:14, the story of the demon posed boy.

The boys’s father so desperately wanted his son to be healed.  But beneath this thing was another thing that Jesus had to heal first, his unbelief.  Jesus wants to get to the thing beneath the thing in our lives.  Here are few of my favorite lines from my notes…

  • Sometimes we are so focused on what we want God to do FOR us that we miss the thing he wants to do IN us.
  • We can bring our issues to church and never really bring them to Jesus
  • The thing that causes me to come to Jesus is often not the first thing He will fix.

The message was life changing for so many people at church this weekend.  I hope you will take the time to watch it this week if you missed it!You can watch it later today on the Elevation Network, in our archive and on our podcast.

Yesterday was also a special day because we celebrated our 12th anniversary.  I never imagined 12 years ago what an incredible ride Steven Furtick would take me on.

We have seen truly experienced the faithfulness of God in every area of our life.  I feel so honored that God would pick me to be the wife of such an an obviously anointed man of God.

I don’t know what the future holds but I know that no matter what happens, I have a husband who truly loves me and we serve a God who has proven to us that never leaves us nor forsakes us.
