Without making this post too long, here are a few thoughts that are bouncing around inside my head the past few days:
Responsibility doesn’t equal influence. Had a really good conversation with a friend this week about this statement. He was spot on in saying it. Too often we confuse the two or even try to equate the two. Both are important but they can be independent of each other. Organizations need both. Sometimes I think I would rather be an influencer.
God answers prayers. I have been praying for a number of years that God would allow me to be a part of a big movement of His. Easter He answered my prayers! Cyndi and I have been volunteering and attending at City Church Tallahassee since January 2011. We have witnessed God grow the attendance at worship services to over 800 on a weekly basis. Anticipating a really bit crowd on Easter, City Church rented the Tallahassee Civic Center. Approximately 4,000 people showed up for the service! Hundreds of people indicated they decided to become a Christ follower that day! Check out the music and the message here http://t.co/3ipubZdG
Here’s a view of that day:
Seasons of Life. We have been in one of the most unusual seasons of life ever the past 16 months! Literally pouring our life, our time, our resources, ourselves into new friends and City Church Tallahassee. It has been a great journey! Is it just beginning? Is it over? Waiting on answers can be a hard thing. One thing we both know – 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. – Jeremiah 29:11.
