“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rustdestroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also." (Matthew 6:19-21, ESV)

Some big changes occurred in my life in the last 12 months. While walking through those, blogging took a back seat to other more pressing matters. Now, having settled into these changes, I've rebuilt the goingoutside site. I'll be making regular posts. Thanks for visiting.

As a pastor and a counselor, I've always enjoyed writing. When I prepare for sermons, I usually write most of the sermon out before creating an outline from which to speak. In counseling, I often journal my thoughts whenever I hear someone else's story.

One of the things I'm learning to do is capture the most amount of thought with the least amount of words. It's been said, the key to being an absolute bore is to tell everything. Those words haunt me, as I oftentimes attempt to say it all! 

The simple phrase, "go outside," says so much. It comes from Matthew 6 where Jesus addresses the worry and anxiety of his disciples. in essence, Jesus invites his followers to exit their cramped space of worry and anxiety and enter into the wide-open spaces of faith in our heavenly Father. 

How much more will our Father in heaven care for us...
