Matthew Shares Some of His Story

by jessicaturner on February 12, 2009

I have been so excited to share this video with you. It is of Matthew reading a piece on Fear that he wrote for the Cross Point series Paralyzed. He read it at each service on Sunday at the Nashville campus and the feedback he received was incredibly positive. I wish you could have been there to hear the laughter.

It is funny. It is moving. It is authentic. I think you will love it…

Fear is definitely something that grips all of us, and like Matthew said, not the Fear of the Endtimes persay, but failing, people, success when there is a far better, far more richer love to walk us through that fear. The amount of love Christ has for us can overcome those fears that grip us on a regular for me daily basis. I’m so glad God seeks after us even though we stand in aw of that Valley…that he’s there holding our hand walking through it with us. Thanks for sharing J! I loved it :)

You have such a talented husband, Jess. He managed to talk through a subject many avoid admitting or talking about in the funniest but most sincerest of ways. I hope he does more readings! You must be very proud =] xxx.

Thank you for sharing Jessica! Matthew is so talented. I have been feeling very fearful lately, I really needed that reminder this week. Thank you so much.
God bless, Stacey

Thanks for sharing this video. I had no idea that other people had a fear of the end times as well. It’s nice to know that I’m not completely crazy :)

As for stopping dreaming out of fear, it’s very tempting, and I’ve been dealing with that big time in the last few months. But I have faith that there’s something bigger in store as well.

Again, thanks for sharing :) It’s very comforting to know that I’m not alone with what I’m thinking sometimes.

God bless you and your beautiful family :)
