Clayton and I had to miss this staff hang out. I would've loved it, but it gives my heart joy to see everyone wanting to hang out, to be together, to enjoy one another. We love you guys!! #crsc16
When I'm offended or frustrated by God's commands, it's usually because I can't get over the sacrifice I'm going to have to make in the WHAT. But, if I can look past the what and and focus on the WHY, obedience is much easier. The WHY is because He loves me. The WHY is because he'd signed me and knows how I work and my best is his concern. The WHY is that I don't always see what's best and I need Him to open my eyes. The WHY is that His plan and His purposes will always be best for me. I just have to TRUST His WHY and then I can do the WHAT. #tri_together #ckmspeaker

You have to read article!!! Check out this snippet: "I've been thinking about Jesus and his sacrifice on the cross, and how paradoxical it is that he endured the cross for the joy that was set before him (see Hebrews 12:2). In some mysterious way, Jesus delighted to do the will of God.
While the Cross was death, suffering, and the greatest difficulty, it was yet the delight of Jesus' heart. This points us toward something that's true about our own spiritual transformation: our desires are being redeemed and reformed.
Of course this doesn't mean God isn't calling us to do difficult things—things we don't "want" to do. In fact, I think God is often calling us to do very difficult things: take up your cross, follow me, hate your father, hate your mother, and so on. These things that don't make sense and don't readily align with our most reflexive desires.
That said, it can be very harmful to frame one's faith in the belief that God's will is always the most difficult choice. We can't assume something is the Lord's will for us simply because it's difficult. In fact, obedience isn't always difficult. Sometimes it is, but I think the more that we're spiritually transformed, the more that we actually want to obey. The more that we're formed into the heart of Jesus Christ, the more we delight in doing the will of our Father."
And that's a wrap Crossroads Camp Week6! Thanks for hanging guys!! #camplifeisthebestlife #crsc16
