In a whole host of ways, I’m glad we’ve turned the page, and are now in the next chapter in the life of Crossroads Community Church. However many chapters we’ve had so far have been great, but I believe with all my heart that the best is yet to come. The days ahead should prove to be some of the most exciting days our church has ever experienced.
For me personally, it’s kind of like “déjà vu all over again.” Years ago, the Lord was speaking to me about a new thing He wanted to do with my life. All I needed to do was listen and follow. As I did, He led me to start Crossroads. In much the same way, a couple of years ago, He began a stirring in my heart about the “next chapter” for our church, about a whole new venture in faith, just as exciting as the last one. One more time, all I needed to do was listen, and follow close behind Him. What a blessing to see what would unfold as I did, to see how deeply He loves His people.
God has been so faithful through this whole process; it has made it much easier for me apothekeschweizer.de. I haven’t had to stress over wondering “who” should come onboard to lead our church for the next generation, or “when” it should happen. God took care of those two things and a whole lot more in wonderful ways, ways that were so clear I couldn’t miss them.
This is the time for all of us to lean into the Spirit. He is doing a fresh, new thing in our midst, and all of us want to be right in the middle of it. It would truly be awful to miss out on a powerful work of God.
Thank you for your faithfulness, for all your kind thoughts and words. They mean more than you might realize. At this point what I look forward to most is the way God is going to lead us all in this “next chapter” as we faithfully follow Him.
