Nothing can give you a fresh look at your life and work like getting away from its geography for a few days. A change in scenery can bring a change in outlook. We all need times of refocus.
For me :
*it’s the daily devotional time in the Word and the weekly worship with the saints to keep my spiritual life on track;
*the family dinners to stay in tune with what’s going on with the most important people in my life;
*the weekly date nights to recalibrate the romance with the love of my life and
*it’s the occasional get-away (sometimes full vacation like this week) that helps me to relish the gift that God has given to me in the people and ministries of Victory Church.
I love you guys SO very much! I thank God for you and all that I see the Lord doing in your lives. I can’t stop praising God for the overwhelming favor of the Lord that has been on our church for the last year. Every Sunday I’m amazed to see people commit their lives to Jesus Christ. It never gets old being able to pray for folks who are by faith receiving a Fresh Start in Christ. Our church is growing – for that I am thankful – not merely in its breadth – numbers, but also in its depth – spiritual life and walk with Christ.
This week, I’ve had lots of reading and prayer and think time – more than usual. So many of the saints at Victory have come up before me – it’s been a joy to think about you and all that you mean to Dawn and me and how much we love seeing the Lord work in your life and pour out His blessings on you. This has been a fantastic week, but honestly, I can’t wait to get back home and worship with you this Sunday!
