Some things change.......

Every once in a while in ministry you come the realization that what you are doing is not working. Whether it is a ministry, a mind set or the entire mission. There comes a point when you have to stop the train and turn it around no matter how how far into the journey you are or how hard it is.

I came to that point the other day in my own life with a project I was working for our church. I have spent many, many hours trying to make it work. I have talked about it, pushed it and at times tried to force people into it. After a few events, a few talks with some people I respect and a lot of prayer I came to the realization that I was so busy pushing for what I thought was best I forgot to ask God what he wanted. I forgot to seek what God wanted for my life and my ministry.

It is really funny how God works because the day that let go of what I wanted God gave me an idea that I think is a game changer. I have talked with a few people about it and I have spent a lot of time praying about it. Will this project fail? Maybe, but I do not fear failure. I believe that as long as I continue to seek God, what he want s to be done will be done and if that means this project doesn't work so be it.
