I have been absolutely amazed at how much the Lord is moving in various areas of my life, both personally and in ministry. What started out as small dreams and ideas are now growing and maturing. It's funny, the older I get, the more I am okay with simply waiting for God's timing to make things grow. His plans are infinitely better than mine!
This past weekend, a bunch of our staff went to a retreat center a couple of hours north of Corpus Christi. It was such a sweet time together. We had long times of worship and prayer, reviewing the past year and casting vision for what is coming, and generally spending time together having fun. My biggest take-away was the importance of putting Jesus first in everything and allowing Him to refine the parts of me that are not completely sold out for and to Him.
