In his final moments the image of an outstretched hand reaching out to him from above comes to me. And a voice saying “my faithful servant, so very well done, come home now.”

Life has changed drastically since March. I have been praying, talking on the phone with friends, and spending time with my family to help rationalize and understand what is going on. Trust in God and know that He is with you, even during what seems to be the darkest of times.
My Name is Chris Vardy, I am a Sophomore at Texas Tech University (Wreck Em’) majoring in Agriculture Communications. Now I know what you’re thinking, I do not know how to talk to cows. That’s next semester. I am very excited to introduce myself to y’all as the new intern for the Youth Ministries.
This school year was a whirlwind of very inconvenient incidences that made me stray from the productivity I find so much comfort in and made my naturally busy-bodied soul feel frustrated, angry, and disappointed. So to all of my fellow busy-bodies out there: Be still. It might be the most productive thing you do all day.
A short while ago, when the world was very different, I signed up to do the devotional for today, March 22, 2020. Somehow, I felt called to do the devotional today, even though we’re not meeting. It’s probably just guilt, but it feels more like a response to missing normalcy, but, really, I’m just missing y’all and wanting to reach out in whatever way possible.

Each week as we leave the sanctuary we ask this question. When then say “We will go out to be God’s people in the world.” What does that look like? What does that really mean?

My wife Allison and I host a Healthy Plate Discipleship breakfast several times a year, so we spend a lot of time talking about the areas of discipleship — Worship, Play, Pray, Learn, Serve, and Give.
