Abide in Me...

Hey K2 Kanakuk Gals,
Last night we had our AWESOME couples small group and we just LOVE our small group. It's rich, authentic, safe, and just awesom! (By "rich," I do not mean $$ but rich in friendship and love...just to clarify). Anyways, after enjoying too many chicken nuggets from Chick-Fil-A from the Farley's (check out Jennifer's K1 Komo Blog HERE) we all nestled into our living room to dig into John 15. Oh, it was so good.

The main you & I abide in HIM? Do you truly with each moment just abide in the Lord? Do you abide in His love for you when you feel so very lonely? Do you abide in His grace when you feel like you have failed? Do you abide in His healing hands when you feel broken in every way? As I listened to my friends last night I realized that abiding isn't super popular with the world. I mean you girls run at a pace these days that is, honors classes as a 2nd grader (joke!), sports, club teams, community service, church, small group, and on and on the list goes. I must admit that sometimes I pray our girls grow into rather "unathletic" girlies b/c I have seen sports take over no vacations or fun trips or any breaks because of sports. I mean let's be honest daughters of Shay and Ashley Robbins most likely will not be going professional in any sport. Sorry, random tangent.

I just today was praying that for you all, all being maybe the 30 kampers who read this, would remember to stop...slow down...and to abide in HIM. When we abide there is a calm to our spirit and a refreshing peace to our souls that others see and you get to simply crawl into the Lord's arms and rest/abide. So go do some phone, facebook, homework, or to do's...just abide in His Unconditional Love for YOU!

Be Awesome & Love Jesus,

Kanakuk Ashley Robbins /
