A new year has begun, and as usual I'm wondering what is in store for the future and what should be the aim of the new year. The first few days of this year really sent me spinning. I was literally DEPRESSED! How bad is that?! But after much prayer and the words of wisdom from others I really believe I have heard from God about 2009.
As far as the church and me personally God has put Isaiah 54 on my heart: …strengthen your stakes! In other words: for years we have seen God do some incredible things, but we have to make sure those things stay strong and go deep. That is what strengthening your stakes is all about. So, some of the things (or stakes) that are on my heart for the new year is:
Prayer and more Prayer
Life group growth & strategy
Powerful life changing worship experiences
I know that list will grow, but for now that is what I am aiming for…
