Day 1

Quick update,short because I’m exhausted, but I’m doing it because I said I would.  Someone has to hold me accountable.

Today went great in the sense that I ate great, whole foods.  But it went poorly in the sense that I didn’t eat much.  I had a great breakfast, but then after working out didn’t have time to eat, which is a big no no… and my body was functioning on caffeine and God’s grace. I was in a long meeting today for Ncompass.  (Big things happening here!!!) and then had a sparatic coffee date with a friend and her daughter, and then ran home before House Church.  Thank goodness for Lara Bars.  But I will plan better tomorrow.

Speaking of house church.  We had a great discussion tonight on “The Cost of Discipleship.”  We were asked, what does that cost look like? And we really had to prayerfully sit there in silences for a few minutes to come up with a good answer.  And yet, all of our answers were different.  For me, right now, it is dying to self.  Loosing my identity in ME, and finding it fresh and new again in my Savior.  Once I get to the other side of each situation, I know that my way is not the right way, but His way is, yet it is SO HARD TO SEE THAT on the one side of the fence.  Others said that its loosing your pride. Or loosing friends and family who disagree with you. Others said it was having a calling that might not be what society deems as worthy.  I love my house church, or missional community rather.  They are such a great group of honest, and dear people.  So thankful for them.

How would you describe “The Cost of Discipleship?”

p.s.  our team came home today from Haiti!  Praise Jesus for the amazing things they were able to accomplish.  Hopefully I’ll have a moment to type something out about that.  But in the mean time, enjoy this great photo of a memorial mural the kids painted for Jackson.  Image

About Katie Matheny

I am a teacher by day, and a wanna-be chef by night. I teach art and Spanish at a small school in Salem, Oregon to a fantastic group of soon-to-be world changers. I've loved cooking since I was a kid, and day dreamed while reading Betty Crocker's giant cookbooks. They were my picture books! I also work with a local non-profit that is doing some amazing things in Haiti. I have an amazing husband who I love to pieces. I love and serve Jesus, my King, and am striving to be a better example of who He is in myself. This is my life, in a few short words every-so-often. I hope you enjoy.
