One of my favorite activities is to hike and climb in the Rocky Mountains. The Rockies are rugged and dangerous, and in order to both a) survive, and b) not get lost, I need to be sure where I’m going at all times.
The church is also on a journey; one that is every bit as rugged and dangerous as a hike in the mountains...
Like this period of waiting between the depths of winter and the fresh signs of spring, our lives involve seasons of waiting. Periods of time between mourning loss & rejoicing life, time between a difficult diagnosis & an answered prayer, time between comfortable living & pursing an uncomfortable calling; periods of time…to wait.
Are you a true believer of the story of who God is and what he is doing in this world? Are you living in a story of sacrifice, purpose and character, or are you living a much smaller story, one that is only about yourself, your life and only made up of things you can see?
