Mark's Story

Kingdom Living means a life of humility and service, with our eyes up… where we walk, run, or sometimes even wrestle with that which we’re called to do.

Bri's Story

To me, it’s living in the present with my mind set on the future. Remembering God so delicately placed me here, but for an unknown amount of time, and I’m called to be a steward of this gift of life until I look Christ in the face for an eternity. I still walk long hard roads, but no one promised it would be easy. I mess up, but there’s grace. It means daily surrendering what my flesh desires to God, and sitting back to see what He has before me. Surrendering my thoughts, words, and actions under the truth that I stand as righteous before my Father because of what Jesus did to let me into God’s Kingdom.

Those are the first moments in my own life that I think of when it comes to Kingdom Living. I don't believe it always means pushing through the fear. I don't believe it always means taking a calculated risk on the first try. Sometimes, fear stops us in our tracks. Sometimes, even safe risks feel impossible to take. I believe it means seeking after the challenge of living fully where we are, regardless of whether or not the situation changes. Celebrating the victories and being sad, too. I...
