Take a listen to Matthew West's own "All In" story!
The other day my daughter and I were talking about the realities of adult life. The business, the obligations, the pressure to be involved. Even the best kinds of involvement can be exhausting, because there is just so much going on all the time! My daughter told me a story that has stuck with me ever since. She told me how she had been struggling with over-commitment at church. On a recent Sunday, after the worship service, she was talking this over with one of the other women involved in leadership whose response to my daughter was this powerful phrase: "No is a freedom word!"
Welcome to Day 2 of the 30 Day Challenge! On Wednesdays during the 30 day challenge we will have an emphasis on prayer.
Today, your challenge is to take 10 minutes to visit the Prayer Center at KLRC.com. Pick one prayer request from the list that especially touches your heart.
I can still remember his words even though it’s been almost 20 years. I don’t think I’ll ever forget the wisdom from one of the most influential mentors in my life: “Mark, for some, following Jesus is a crutch. But what He really wants to be is a total life support system.”
Maybe it has stuck with me so much because I know how easy it is to fall into the trap of living a life where Jesus is something to lean on only when I feel like I need it. I rely on Him for a short season, until I get stronger, or until I get through the pain. But over time I’ve learned that real life, the All In life, comes when I am aware of and fully dependent on Him for each breath, each step, each day.
If I were a silent voice inside your head right now helping you to build healthy relationships, you might hear me say, “Generally speaking, what is said is never what is heard.”
More times than not, we assume the worst, and then we start acting out what we think we heard. It’s like we instantly become mind-readers or something. And then we’re mad at our spouse, a friend, or a colleague, and they might not even know anything is wrong! Why? Because no one stopped to clarify, or even ask the question, “Did you mean that? Because I heard this.”
2018 might have exactly the hope you need to make this year the best one yet! So we’re challenging you to try something for 30 days that might be life changing.

We've been pondering the unimaginable love of God, and how we can pray for such love in the lives around us. Paul is teaching us in Ephesians 3, praying that his friends would be rooted and established in love, and that they would come to know how wide the love of Christ is.
If we could have coffee today, I’d say, “It’s ok not to be ok.”
For many years, my life was mostly sunny, but then came “the storm.” Rain streamed down in my world and hurt poured out from a place in my heart that I’d kept locked for years.
Hearing that you child has been diagnosed with a life-threatening illness is one of the hardest things a parent can face. In one moment life completely changes for the whole family. Hospitals and therapy and pharmacies become the new normal.
