Bible Journey

I have not blogged since KAF camp about the incredible things that God is doing. It is so awesome to be part of a Kingdom team. You can read Beth's thoughts here and here. The fruit that is produced by this synergy is amazing. Hundreds of lives have been changed through the ministry of this team. Beth and I are humbled to be a part of this great Kingdom venture.

I also visualize this for the local church. What would happen in my town or your town if we all leveraged our talents and abilities to build the Kingdom of God without petty competition or jealousy? Is it possible? You betcha! It is happening in cities all over the world.

Leaving CHC Lake City was a difficult decision for us. We thought we were leaving this great team and church for marketplace ministry. On the contrary, God was moving us out because He needed to touch some things in my heart and prepare us for our next assignment. Today this phrase is rolling around in my heart: "God has a plan, a people, and a place". Do I know the direction any clearer than yesterday? No. But I have a word and hope...these are the fertile soil of faith and faith makes the impossible possible!

Hebrew 11: 1-3 NAS "Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen. 2For by it the men of old gained approval. 3By faith we understand that the worlds were prepared by the word of God, so that what is seen was not made out of things which are visible. "

We never quite know where the road will take us. Praying for you as you journey.

And your thoughts on synergy are well stated. It is a real shame that it occurs so infrequently. There is a very good reason for that - pride, ego, and personal preference are far more common. I suppose this is because conciet is inherent to all of humanity. Our only hope is to recognize or frailty, surrender our arrogance and embrace humility. That takes a bit of practice.
