This has been the year that has changed everything.
This day a year ago, I didn’t know what was the more appropriate response to how I was feeling. The options felt like either crying or throwing up. I did neither but I had moments where I was sure there was going to be a mess.
September 18, 2011 was an incredible day. It was seeing the beginning of something that had begun long before that day and something that would continue on. It was just the beginning. A year later, I still feel that way. This is just the beginning and the best is yet to come.
We are not the same people that walked through those doors of McCallum High School a year ago. I can speak with confidence that our launch team feels the exact same way.
Planting a church is hard. It is living in the unexpected. It is believing that God has a plan and it is the Church. It’s believing in the vision He seared and that moment that you knew you could no longer just talk and pray. It was a call to action and to not move forward would be disobedience. I’ve learned more in this past year about who I am…and who I’m not (happy joy). I care about things I never cared about before and don’t care about things I used to care about. God so lovingly and graciously has stretched, challenged and broken us over this past year. I see purpose in things I never saw purpose in. I see a lot of things like I never saw them before.
I wouldn’t trade this past year for anything.
God is good. God is faithful.
