As most of you know, I recently have joined the NORTHchurch staff in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. One of the most amazing things about working at NORTHchurch is being able to work everyday with such an amazing, Godly staff.

A few of the other guys on staff have blogs where they consistently write about life, ministry, and leadership. They are both sharp, quality communicators. I strongly encourage all the briancromer.com readers to check out their blogs. You won’t be disappointed.

You’re blessed when you’re at the end of your rope. With less of you there is more of God and his rule.

You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you.

You’re blessed when you’re content with just who you are – no more, no less. That’s the moment you find yourselves proud owners of everything that can’t be bought.

You’re blessed when you’ve worked up a good appetite for God. He’s food and drink in the best meal you’ll ever eat.

You’re blessed when you care. At the moment of being “care-full,” you find yourselves cared for.

You’re blessed when you get your inside world – your mind and heart – put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.

You’re blessed when you can show people how to cooperate instead of compete or fight. That’s when you discover who you really are, and your place in God’s family.

You’re blessed when your commitment to God provokes persecution. The persecution drives you even deeper into God’s kingdom

~ Jesus, Matthew 5:3-10 (The Message)
