So it’s been kind of a rough weekend. Seems kind of like we’ve been rushing to put out one fire after another. In the midst of it all, our car broke down and we found ourselves staring down some pretty nasty circumstances in the lives of some close friends of ours. Through it all, we’ve ended up pretty tired, with a borrowed car (Josh and Heidi are great) and trying to make the most of every minute to catch up from our weekend.
As I’ve been thinking about the weekend, I know there is purpose in what we’ve been through. It’s funny to me that all my “true church experiences” are often terrible while I’m in the midst of them but I remember them fondly years later. When we were leading our house church in KC, I had such a hard time with it that I had to take a picture of our house church and put it on my computer with the words “Why I Love My Job” plastered over it, just to remind me that we were doing a good thing. We’ve been asking the Lord to restore New Testament Christianity and to begin to develop true community here in Cedar Rapids. Looks like He’s starting to answer our prayers.
If you are the praying type and you’re reading this post, pray for Christy and I right now. We really need grace to keep our vision high while in the middle of all this warfare. Ask God to help us see the supernatural realm and partner with it to see breakthrough in this season.
