After 38 years of life I think I finally know what God's wants to do with my life at least in the broadest sense of the idea. Over the years I have come to realize that the whole idea of being a Christ-Follower is about relationships. My relationship with my Heavenly Father and with each distinct personality of the Trinity - just a fancy way of saying knowing God, the Holy Spirit, and Jesus. And knowing is more than knowing that they love me and want the best for me, it's about truly investing myself into a true relationship where they talk and listen and I talk and they guide. Knowing their words and their desires for not just me but also my family, and the world that I have influence over. A relationship of depth and action.
It's also about relationships with other people and more importantly creating meaningful relationships. I've had some wonderful ones in the last few years! And partly because of those relationship God has changed me a Stacy and our children.
So in a few months we begin a completely new journey. One that'll take us away from home for a while and will change our lives. It's taken me 38 years to discover that knowing Christ is about freedom! And I and Stacy feel free to take some risks and follow God into a whole new life.
Pray for us! And if you know us you already know what I'm talking about when I talk about this journey, but even if you don't yet know that it is about freedom!
