Marinate Blog Summer Study: Week 6

Interesting day. I was was going to drop Shep off at school, record the video, and spend the rest of the morning studying. It was going to be a fabulous, productive a.m. complete with coffee and the oh-so-wonderful sound of complete silence.

About 15 minutes into this video, my camera went dead. While I was charging it (and very frustrated with myself for not checking the battery BEFORE I started), I got a text from my hair stylist that said “running late.” Yep, that’s right – I had a hair appointment that I totally forgot to put on my calendar. So, off I went to get my cut and color which took my entire morning. When I picked up Shep at noon, there was still no video, but I did manage to acquire a massive headache. I put him down for a nap and finally managed to finish recording the video, do some editing, “produce” the file, and begin the upload process. . . with a little time left over to squeeze in a tiny nap that did wonders for the intense pounding going on inside this head of mine. Gotta love it when a day has a mind of it’s own. I suppose I should be a little more diligent about building margins into my life. But where’s the fun in that? 🙂

It’s hard to believe we only have one session left after this one. I have really enjoyed doing this study with you! As always, if you have a minute, I’d love to hear how the Lord spoke to your heart through this session.

Surrender, sacrifice, separation, saturation, service!


  1. At about 29 min there is no video. It is a picture of you frozen. You are still speaking, but I just wanted to let you know! Love this session! I love that you said that we must sacrifice even if it conflicts with what we want! That hit me! There is an area in my life that I am praying for God to break me but deep down my heart is hardening! Please pray that I will sacrifice everything for Him because He is worthy! It is not my life but His life in me! That was just what I needed today! It will cost me everything!
