There's many things I miss from back home. And honestly, the more I think about them the more I miss them and the more I wish I was around them again. But, much like I said in my last post, God's plans will sometimes call for you to step into what's unfamiliar and where the wind blows in the opposite direction.
But the wind doesn't always have to be something that's in opposition to us. I'd even go as far to say that often times, we victimize ourselves to what opposes us. And it's not because we like to play victim but rather we are afraid of the mystery and unknown of where the wind may lead us.
If we'd simply change our direction, we could see that the very thing that we believe is opposing us is actually guiding and getting us to where we need to be.
This is Kyle. And before I moved to Sydney, I lived and worked with this fine fellow.
While I was off running around with a camera and leading an amazing team of volunteers, Kyle was directing, teaching, and pastoring a group of young, enthusiastic hearts. While learning all they could about ministry and serving the local church, the transformation that took place within their lives could be seen even in their posture and the way they carried themselves.
I saw several intakes make their way through the program and each time, I can honestly say, the individuals that I met at the beginning of the internship were not the same individuals I would've come to know by the end of it. And at each season's conclusion, we'd all be pointing to Jesus, giving Him all the credit.
So why the heck am I writing this? Well, one, because I wanted to show some video work I had done while I was on staff at The Father's House. You'll see those below.
But the real goal of this post is to say:
It's time to turn with the wind instead of pushing your way through it.
God surely knows what He's doing when He calls you to go somewhere or to do something. I can speak that from experience I've gone through and that I'm going through now.
So maybe MessageMakers is that next thing for you. Check out http://messagemakers.tv for this next season's dates and all the information you'll need to sign up. And if you're more of a visual person, check out this promo I did for the program a few months back.
And help us celebrate the MessageMakers in this video who just finished their program this past week. Congrats you guys!
