Change is good.

Something must have happened to me.  I don’t know the “what” but I can see the consequences.  Today, I had more patience.  I laughed more.  I felt more like me than I have in a while.  I see possibilities rather than just the hurdles. 

There are some people around whom I don’t recognize myself.  And then there are the people around whom I remember who I am.  This weekend I was around people who reminded me of who I am.  Because they know who I am.  It was I who lost sight of that.

Today I told someone, with all due sincerity, that I am going to preach the gospel all over the world.  I know that it’s true.  I know that God has a lot of work to do in my heart, in my spirit, in my life for that to happen.  Obviously healing has to take place.  I have to forgive myself of so much.  But, God is bigger than my inadequacies.  If God was able to transform Saul into Paul, Christian killer into author of 2/3 of the NT, then God can certainly do the work in me that He needs to.

I have a new favorite artist.  Sara Groves.  I was introduced to her a few months ago when I was going through some stuff.  I just listened to the song that was recommended yesterday, entitled “This Journey is my own.”  Good stuff.  Check it out.  I wanted to put it here, but I couldn’t find it.  So I give you another song, which I dedicate to my future friends all over the world.  Enjoy.

  1. Awesome post. Awesome video. I have a similiar but different “God Vision.” I hope that God allows me to pastor a church one day that is multi-racial, multi-cultural, mutli-everything, because I know that is what Heaven is going to look like.


  2. Very cool. I love being involved in a multi-ethnic move of God. I can’t imagine living in a vanilla world. Yuck. God was so creative, making people of all colors, personalities, sizes, interests. I love the sound of many languages mingling into one beautiful symphony.

    Awesome stuff…awesome!
