Crosswinds is beginning to take shape and we are getting closer to the launch date of March 29th. Reality has begun to set in that we are in new roles and I am no longer just a youth pastor's wife but a lead pastor's wife and I am trying to figure out what that looks like for me. Praying daily for His wisdom and guidance as I strive to become the woman He would have me be. I am daily praying for more joy, discipline, faith, love, mercy, grace, and patience so that I can be used by Him. Dying to self....less of me and MORE of Him.
I am truly humbled to be on this journey and I am amazed at times that we are here doing this what seems to be such an insurmountable task. Our desire is to be used by Him. Simple us...with our faults and weaknesses...for others to see HIM not us...God IS going to do BIG things here in the Leland area. I am so excited to see what He is going to do in the days ahead. I am continually amazed and SO thankful for the team He has assembled around us to help with launching Crosswinds. I was reading through my journal over the past year and as I saw all the many answers to prayers He reminded me that HE IS GOD and that HE IS AT WORK among us...God is so good! I needed the reminder to Be STILL and KNOW that HE IS GOD! He has gone before us and He daily goes before us to accomplish His will. I pray that I never lose sight of why we are here and that I continually thank Him and praise Him for the MANY blessings and answers to prayers He is giving to us. This has been a journey filled with ups and downs but one thing is for sure.... God IS who He says He is and HE IS FAITHFUL! For that I am SO thankful!
