Going to Another Level

As I was praying about 2018, God gave me a sense in my spirit that this would be a year where I would see some things rise to a new level. I am seeing that in areas: work and church.

We ended last year with a little bit of a shift at work. Some people moved to different positions. As the new year has kicked off, it has been awesome to see some things put into place that have been long awaited. Considering that the company was very small and still laying its foundation when I started with it, I am thrilled to see some areas develop. I am specifically being stretched in my role as Volunteer Coordinator. We are orienting 8 volunteers at the moment. It’s an exciting time. My co-workers are so key in assisting me in this area. When I am out seeing patients, they assist the volunteers in whatever ways that are necessary. We have an administrative assistant that has been a trooper although she is very close to having a baby. Other staff members have had some hiccups in the beginning of this year, but at the end of the day we try to encourage each other through it. Despite our personality differences, we have a great team.

The developments of Overcomers Church have blessed me beyond my wildest dreams. We are having great attendance to be in a rented facility. Our people work hard each week to make things come together. They are stepping up in new ways, and I have to brag on them just like I do my coworkers. The awesome part is that God is sending additional people with musical ability, and we are able to go to a new level there. It isn’t happening like it is happening in every other church, but I’m glad for that. I want God to do a new thing. I don’t want to mimic the “cool” church in town. I want Overcomers to be a unique thing that God does and something for which I can take no credit.

Don’t give up on your dreams! Don’t settle for less than God’s best! He is ready to move you to another level. Are you ready?

  1. I pray for Overcomers Church, that 2018, it will really take off by God’s Holy presence, as you all continually seek first his presence, his Kingdom and do the right thing, enabled by the Spirit of God – remembering that most of the time we are overcoming rather than Overcomers, although we are well on the way to being Overcomers, as the Scripture makes it clear in Romans 8:37, that, “No, in all these things, we are more than conquerors through him who loved us.”

  2. What an encouraging and uplifting post, Matthew! I’m so thankful and delighted that God is blessing you both at work and in your ministry. May God continue to bless you beyond all that you can imagine in 2018!

  3. How exciting! I am thrilled that God is moving in your church and bringing in those people that you need at the right time. He is so faithful to us! Keep your dream alive. There are many of us out here praying for you and your church.

    Be blessed

  4. I am praying that God continues to bless you! It is always wonderful to hear of how God is working in the lives of others! Don’t ever lose hope, because all things work together for our good! God bless you! 🙂
