A few weeks ago I purchased a mobile internet stick, which is basically a fancy way of describing a device that lets you have intenet access on your laptop no matter where you are. For me that has meant freedom because it means I'm no longer tied down to my office or a wireless hot spot when I'm working. So between that and finally having my own vehicle I can work at the park, at the beach, on the road or at the cottage, which is amazing!

About a week and a half ago I was driving back from Cochrane with a friend and we saw these guys on the side of the road. Something I definitely wouldn't have seen out my office window:

Looking For One

I was in Sudbury last week and on a recommendation, I picked up the Jake Hamilton album called "Freedom Calling" and I'm really loving it. It reminds me of Jason Upton, mixed with a bit of Hillsong and Kim Walker.

My favorite song on the album is called "Looking For One" and it's really the cry of my heart to be that one who stands in the gap. Listen to the song below and check out the lyrics:

Looking For One
By Jake Hamilton

Jesus came to save the world
Then He let us give it a whirl and we messed it up
But I'm not giving up
Cause as far as I know, mercy still remains
And judgement only comes if we don't remain faithful
You'll find me faithful

Cause you're looking for one
Who can hear Your heart beat
Who can feel when You lead
And the time and the season
You're looking for one
Who will stand in the gap
Who will never look back
Finds Your heart in their freedom
You're looking for one

I've heard it said He hates our show
And all He wants is for us to know justice
And what true love is
Our melodies will never do
And all these programs keeping You distant
Have we missed it

You choose the broken, You choose the weak
You favor the humble, You raise up the meek
Blessed are those who are found poor in spirit
For theres is the kingdom, it's so hard to hear it
You don't shy away from the foolish and fumbling
You're able to use all those tired and stumbling
And just when we think that our work is all done
I hear your heart,
You're looking for one.

Weekend @ the Cottage

Last weekend I jetted out to my aunts cottage to spend my first weekend there this summer. Even though it rained off and on throughout the weekend I still had a fantastic time.

I did some reading in Andy Stanley's The Principle of the Path, a book that I'm thoroughly enjoying. I did some thinking and praying about the future and the changes that are ahead. I spent time outdoors, enjoying the beauty of God's creation. And in the evenings I wrote a few new devotionals for the MAD Christian Radio Show (which you can find here, along with a new feature that links the devotionals with facebook).

All in all, it was a very peaceful time where I got to clear my head and quiet myself so that I could hear God speak. I left feeling encouraged and excited about the future. Can't wait to spend more time out there this summer!
