I went to Starbucks this morning (Tuesday) to finish up my sermon for Wednesday. I am TIRED with all that we’ve been doing lately at the church, and I had to get a change of scenery—so what better place than Starbucks.
To be honest, I have been in a dry spot lately. I’ve felt very distant from God and I was wondering if I had somehow missed His will. It was rough. And so I’m on my way to Starbucks and I figured I’d pray; I forgot. So after I finish my Mocha and my sermon, I bounce to Wal-Mart (Fear Factor!). I finish up and get in the car to head back to Vincent—this time I actually begin praying.
I take a quick pit-stop at LifeWay and pick up a new book [Vintage Jesus] and get back in the car and continue my talk with God. And as I began to open up and be honest with Him [not like He didn’t already know me] He began to reveal things to me. I wouldn’t say it was a “vision”, but He began to reveal Himself and His plan for us. He showed me people getting saved on regular days at school. He showed me people being prayed for in PE and getting healed. He showed me people being filled with the Holy Spirit in between classes. And the people leading the way were you guys [CMs].
I now understand that our vision [Discover. Belong. Dare.] was never really meant to take place here—God intends for it to happen at VHS. I believe we’re on the cusp of a great revolution led by the Spirit of the Living God!!!!!! Begin to pray, fast, worship. Ask the Spirit to refill you and to give you courage and wisdom.
The only way this vision will come to pass is for you to catch it. If you can see the vision, let me know. Email me, myspace, call, something. And then let’s begin to make it happen!
