Living the crazy life that God has given me!

Sunday Night Thoughts

Elevation

It has been an amazing last three years since we first started Elevation here in Aurora.  As Michelle and I spent Saturday together we talked about many of the things that have happened in the last three years at Elevation.  We talked about the things that brought smiles to our faces and we talked about the things that hurt our hearts.  We still hang to the word that we created as a family when we left Northern California to move to Aurora, CO to start Elevation, it is “terriciting”.

You see when you are starting a church or when you are actively stepping out in faith as you follow Jesus it is two things:

  • It is  terrifying.  It is a scary thing to step out in faith, it is a scary thing to walk with in the unknown, it is a scary thing to no know what is going to happen next, and it is a scary thing to not have total control over what you are doing.
  • It is exciting. I mean it is exciting to see how God shows up when you didn’t know how.  It is is exciting to walk where you have never walked before. (Like a good trip in a new country.) It is exciting to not know what you are going to experience next. We have seen some amazing things happen in people’s lives.  It is exciting to not to have any control of what will happen. (Just like a roller coaster.)

So to all of those that are preparing to start a church, or to step out and try something new when it comes to your spiritual development, I encourage you to go for it.  I want to encourage you to know that it is the most “terriciting” thing that you can ever do and it is well worth it.  I hope that today as you read this you are hearing that still small voice of God telling you to do something that you know is just crazy.  Because you when you hear that voice and you step out you are about to embark on the most “terriciting” thing possible.  Have a great day, week, month, and year being “terricited”!

By the way I am so “terricited” for the next year that I just can’t contain myself, what about you?
