New beginnings

Isn’t it interesting how hard transition can be?  Even good transitions are difficult.

Exodus 3:1-2 (KJV)

1 Now Moses kept the flock of Jethro his father in law, the priest of Midian: and he led the flock to the backside of the desert, and came to the mountain of God, even to Horeb.

2 And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.

Ok, if I were to walk outside my front door and see the front bush on fire, I would be quite bothered.  If it started talking to me, I’d probably go see a doctor.  God has these amazing ways of grabbing our attention in ways we don’t expect, and often asks us to do things we don’t feel ready to do!

Last night our eldest was asking us to reconsider moving.  He wants to stay with HIS friends, HIS school, HIS sports teams, in a place that feels comfortable.  I don’t blame him at all!  Transitions are hard, and we all want to feel safe.

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature. Life is either a grand adventure or nothing.”
— Helen Keller

What if God’s call isn’t one of ease, but one of excitement and adventure?

What if we lived primarily for this adventure, rather than strive for comfort and normalcy?

To our family in Dallas:  We can’t thank our Crossroads family enough for all they have done for us!  Please continue to pray for us and our family as we embark on this new adventure.  Pray God’s kingdom is expanded! Pray His name would be made know through the northern Indianapolis area and beyond.  I know we will pray these prayers for you in reference to DFW.

To our new ministry in the north ridge of Indy:  We can’t wait!  I pray John 13:35 and Ephesians 3:14-21 over us.  I know I am leaving a powerful ministry with some amazing people here in Dallas, but I  believe God will cultivate that there too!  I believe we are about to embark on some amazing days.

Staying in touch.
