IMPOSSIBLE? NOT!

The Rescuing Hope Coffee House at Riverstone Church. How has 2016 been for you so far? For me it has been like a fast moving train and I've been trying to keep up. I apologize for not posting last week. With the first Rescuing Hope Coffee House I was firing on all cylinders. I've been chewing on what I am about to share with you; however, it never made it from my journal to the computer until now. On Thursday night, when I stood up to speak to those who attended the Coffee House at Riverstone Church, I [...]

FEAR IS A FOUR LETTER WORD

Fear - it's a four letter word, but for some reason, it's one people tend to embrace more often than not. Many times in life we find the things we fear never come to pass. This weekend, we were blessed to have Jason Upton lead worship at Riverstone Church. It was a blessing not only to hear him sing, but to hear some of the stories behind the songs he wrote.  When he was talking about faith and fear he said something very profound, It takes more faith to believe fear. Fear disappoints me more than hope, I just give it more [...]

I saw Jesus yesterday!

Have you ever been to a children's consignment sale before? It is a sale where people bring clothing, toys, furniture, and baby equipment to sell over a few days. Riverstone Church has held a semi-annual consignment sale called Born Again Blessings since the first year the church was established. The sale used to be held at the Cobb County Civic Center, however, due to remodeling they had to relocate the sale to the church.  I have been a part of this consignment sale from its inception. I was on the committee for years, when my children were little. I've dressed my [...]

God’s Not Dead

Have you seen the movie, God's Not Dead yet? It is a story of a young college student, Josh Wheaton, who is challenged by an atheist professor to declare God is dead. When the student refuses to do so, the professor tells him he'd better be prepared to debate and defend his position and if he fails to do so, he fails the class. This picture is very exciting for Riverstone Church, because our worship pastor, Daniel Bashta, wrote the theme song. It was first made popular by David Crowder. He discovered it on Youtube and played it for the first time [...]

Jesus, the Ultimate Thrifter

Born Again Blessings Do you ever shop at thrift stores or consignment sales? They are very similar. Thrift stores are stores that sell donated clothing, furniture, and household products that have been donated, thus making the money taken into the store pure profit.  My favorite thrift stores or second-hand stores are Wellspring Treasures and The Salvation Army, not because of what they carry in their stores, but the purpose behind their stores.  Wellspring Treasures exists for the sole purpose of funding Wellspring Living, a treatment program for victims of human sex trafficking in Georgia.  The Salvation Army has [...]
