Last weekend I got a really bad cold from my son, Judah. I was thrown for a loop. And I don’t know what it is but my brain still feels mushy. I think it’s a combination of things, being really busy over the past few months with working from home, watching Judah and not really having a break.
So I am really looking forward to a week from today when I will be in Disneyland with my wonderful wife Kathy, and two of our friends, Scott and Alyssa. No kids, no work, no real agenda of any sort. Just a time to rest and recharge.
As a church we have been going through some really stressful times, and we are about to engage in another season of battle against the enemy who wants to shut us down. But we need to just keep on going. We have a lot of things that we are rocking and rolling. We are starting a mid-week program for the whole church. We are looking at the holidays and starting to plan what we are going to do there. And my prayer is that Jesus will be made big in our Church, and that we would not get discouraged or frustrated by our circumstances.
So this vacation falls right in the beginning of all of this and I know that it’s going to be a great season of ministry, and I am really looking forward to see what God does. I am praying that this time away will help Kathy and I fall more and more in love and I hope that I can recharge my batteries so that I can give everything in me to the mission that God has called me to.
When I return from Disneyland we are going to be talking about authenticity at our >>beyond>> gatherings. So I’m really looking forward to that. I am praying that Jesus will really start to do a work on our hearts and help us to be real with him and with each other.
