Every day we are surrounded by influences telling us what to say, what to wear, what to eat, how to think, and even who we should be . With so many influences telling us what’s “right”, many of us spend our days in conflict over big and small decisions. The voices around us are always there, distracting us from a God who knows us truly and completely, and distracting us from the things that are really important. Matthew 6:33 says, Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need (NLT)”.


When we are surrounded by so much noise, seeking God first might feel impossible. What if it wasn’t? Have you ever thought about what it would feel like to truly seek him and step into the identity and calling God has for you? 


We are excited to find out together.
