I have been working so hard. Too hard, according to my husband and and our daughters and our dog, and certainly my body.
I care so passionately about my work, my pastoring, and I am eager for the beloved people of MCC Richmond to live out the vision I see for us. So I get all wrapped up in learning and preaching and meeting and cajoling and teaching and praying to help create change.
But I don’t want to forget that the vision I see may not be the vision others see. Or perhaps, most importantly, it is not the vision of God for us. It is ultimately only God’s vision that really matters.
So, I get on my knees again today to ask God the Creator, the source of all life, and Jesus the Christ, the captain of the team I choose to play on, and the Holy Spirit, the provider of the power: show me, guide me, push me, pull me, melt me, mold me, fill me, use me . . . .fall fresh on me.
