Don't Jump, Join

Are you sick of feeling confused about the gifts God has given you?

Do you feel frustrated and pulled into different directions?

If you said, “yes” to either or both of the above questions, then you and I have something in common. So many of us wish that Jesus would spread the clouds open and hand us a blueprint to our futures. 

Well at least I do!

Maybe you’re like me and on the edge of making some huge decisions that could alter your life forever. I am urging you: "Don't jump." Take a step back and take a deep breath. God is at work in and around you.  

The pressure to perform for Jesus was taken off our shoulders at the cross. Our new task is to join what God is already doing in the world.

Look around you right now...are you missing opportunities to display Christ in your community? 

Sometimes we become so distracted by good things that we miss Godly opportunities. Some of us get so distracted by our own failures that we miss Godly opportunities. 

A quiet lie that I have been wrestling with is the idea that it's my task to save the world.

The truth is I can't save the world. Heck, I can't even save money half the time.

The deeper truth is the only thing you and I bring to our relationship with Christ is the sin that makes it necessary.

Don't jump into the hustle of decision-making and get yourself into a race you will never win.  

Join the movement of grace.

What does that mean?

It means God is enough and His desire for your life has nothing to do with “your dreams.”

It's about Him using you to accomplish His dreams. 

Let that sink in; I will be doing the same. (Mark 16:15 is His dream...let's get to work)

In what ways can you join what God is already doing around you?
