FEATURING: CINDY NYBERG

Cindy blogs for her site CoffeeandCredo.com & is a speaker with Christian Speaking Bureau, Signal Speakers. It doesn’t take long to figure out that she has a passion to share the goodness of Jesus Christ with everyone she meets. This goal spills from the page or the stage & into your heart. Cindy is known to light up the room with the joy of Jesus & contagious laughter!

& WORSHIP

The Worship Team is comprised of five women who all reside in Central Nebraska with their families. Their passion for music & Jesus makes serving in worship a joy & an honor. All glory to the One who puts a song of gladness in our hearts!

I chased beauty & craved a “perfect” image in the mirror. This chase lead me to an addiction to numbers, hoping that if I got the scale low enough I’d be happy, only to realize numbers are infinite & never satisfy. Then I chased affection, hoping that the affirmation of others would make me feel confident. But I learned that the criticism of man is often louder than the applause of man, & both are fleeting. Then I chased success, desiring to surpass people’s expectations. I soon realized that worldly success never satisfies… it wasn’t meant to. All of these things I’ve chased have lead me back to one place… Jesus.

He is worthy of the chase. What’s different about chasing Jesus? This chase has an end goal. When we chase after Him, we are sure to find Him. Jeremiah 29:13 tells us this: “You will seek me & find me when you seek me with your whole heart.” When we pursue knowing Jesus, we can know that we will reach that goal. After all, Jesus is the ultimate Prize of this life.

Whatever you’re chasing, whether it be perfection, affection, applause, beauty, acceptance, success – know that you weren’t meant to find your hope in these things. You were made to chase Him. In Him you’ll find beauty, acceptance, grace & perfect love. In Him you will find joy, friendship, purpose & confidence. Any other earthly chase will leave you breathless & will get you nowhere. But to pursue Jesus will lead you straight to the cross where all hope & joy is found. There is no greater pursuit in this life than the pursuit of God. Let’s chase after Him all the days of our lives.
