Crazy Week

This week has been unbelievable. We were finally able to let our church where we currently serve, Bayside Community Church, that we would be leaving to go plant a church in Ft. Lauderdale. I don’t know about you but I always think that when God gives you a vision for your life and you start to go after it that it should be easy. Well Wednesday night at church was anything but easy. From the time that Shayla and I got there till the end was a major struggle for me personally. During worship I was looking around the room, seeing people who’s lives have been changed through the intersection of my life to create their story. Their stories have been put together in different ways and times to create the His story of my life. It has been such a great journey up until this point and just thinking about walking away from the lives, relationships and this amazing church was really hard on me. At the end of the night all that God kept speaking into my heart was two words “Greater Things.”

I believe that God has “Greater Things” for each one of us. The thing is that we so many times settle for the good things instead of stepping out into the unknown to experience the fullness of all that God has for us. We become content with the job, car, relationship etc. because it is comfortable. I don’t see anywhere in the Bible where God or Jesus really ever left anyone who followed Him comfortable. I think that for each one us we have got to step and live a life of adventure and risk. God didn’t risk it all so we could risk less, in fact at the end of Jesus life He tells us we will do Greater Things than even He did. What is the Greater Thing God is asking you to step out and risk in?

    Ahhh….yes, that sound VERY familiar right now. That ‘bittersweet’ feeling sometimes seems more bitter, than sweet. But God knows what He is doing, right? Love you guys!
