My biggest question: will you be brave in 2009?
I'm asking myself and others. If yesterday is a measuring place, it is going to be a great year. Lots of new friends at The Community. Some excellent stories shared as well as celebrating all God did in 2008. We met and exceeded our mission offering '08 (numbers to come soon). But most of all I watched some things happen that make my heart glad ...
I watched some people who just months ago didn't care for Jesus reach out to others for Jesus. I listened to a precious friend whose husband died last week talk about the struggles and the blessings of life. I watched my children enjoy life and realize how fast they are growing up.
This is going to be a great year. I'm excited about sharing E-Devotions and leadership thoughts. I'm excited about being a husband and a dad. I'm excited about walking with Jesus and enjoying more and more and more of that time.
John 8:28 (nlt) --- So Jesus said, "When you have lifted up the Son of Man on the cross, then you will understand that I Am he. I do nothing on my own but say only what the Father taught me."
Repeat and be brave in 2009!
