INKED: Going Beneath the Surface

Dec 4, 2008

Video #1 documented the process leading up to my tattoo.  It ended right after the artist, Dan Plumley, drew the design on the surface of my skin. 

Up to that point… wasn't permanent. 

After showing that piece last weekend, I talked about how that is exactly where MANY of our relationships STOP as well. 

On the SURFACE. 

And as a result, many of our relationships never experience the kind of depth and intimacy that God designed them to experience. 

It's not until we COMMIT to going through the PAIN and DISCOMFORT……that a lasting mark is made.

Speaking of pain and discomfort……watch this:
