Today marks a new season on my ministry journey. I had to face the fact that although God called me to get the ball rolling for Overcomers Church, I do not have the skill set to take it beyond where it is. I have been trying to avoid swallowing that pill for several months, but today I told our core group that they could either choose to dissolve or choose to move forward. They chose the latter. These are dedicated people who want to see something happen. For that, I am grateful. I can’t wait to see what God does with this awesome group. I’m glad I got to play a small part in it.
As for the future of me and my family, you won’t have to read any more about the church on my posts (and all God’s people said Amen?). Seriously, I understand that the nature of my ministry is mostly transitional. I have stayed places anywhere from 7 months to 6 years. Some transitions take longer than others. Sometimes, God sends me somewhere so He can work on me.
I am excited about the future. Whether I rest a little while or find myself receiving a new assignment from God within the next few months, I am at His disposal. I surrendered to do His will not mine.
I find it funny that the title of yesterday’s post was “I Resign”, because I did not plan to do that today. Later in the day, I could not quit struggling until I knew what God wanted for me and for the church. Now I know. Although I almost choked on reality, I feel free now. I don’t have to try to do something that is outside my ability and spin my wheels. Now I can rest in who God created me to be and be 100 percent okay with that. He holds my future and the future of Overcomers in His hands. Meanwhile, I will serve Him while I wait.
