Strength for the Journey

hether in the stuff of our individual lives or as we gather in various ways, our core mission at CFC is to see lives transformed by the manifestation of God’s presence. This will be central in how we live our lives. So what does that mean? What does that look like? 

Discovering this is the beauty of this pilgrimage, but there are a few things that serve as indicators that this mission is more than just words. As we consciously welcome His presence and linger in that place of worship and awe, our perspective (our way of seeing and thinking) begins to change. Our priorities begin to change. We begin to more quickly and naturally ask, “What is the Father doing?” Despite the complexity of life, we begin to see that it’s uncomplicated after all: love Him and love others.
Living as a pilgrim is constantly being aware of the mission. Moment-by-moment acknowledging that whatever the trial or joy I am experiencing, God is good and His purposes are good. Because of that confidence, I choose His ways. I listen for and respond to His voice, His Word. It’s walking the way He is walking and loving what He loves.
It’s manifesting His heart. Displaying His glory. The fruit is transformed lives.
In His presence is the promise of substantive healing. In His presence is counsel for the confused. In His presence is rest for the weary. In His presence is fullness of joy. In His presence is strength for the journey.
