Today, Blake Holmes gave an amazing message that we'll continue to digest . . . he gave a great analogy . . . he said, "if you really want to know how fast you are, you get on the track and run in a race . . . that will show you how fast (or slow) you really are. If you want to know where you are spiritually, go through trials." This will be a message that I watch again and again (thanks to the podcast). I always feel that I learn a lot from the messages I hear at Watermark . . . but today, I really thought Blake was talking to Haley and me. I hope that doesn't sound like I'm only thinking of myself. I realize other people are going through hard things, and probably worse things. I just really got a lot out of it. Thanks Blake!
