what a difference a day makes

It's funny how the thing you love can become the thing you hate.  The last few weeks have been very intense.  Mostly planning, meetings, traveling, speaking, raising money . . . all for our new church.  I love this church.  I put my heart and soul into it daily.  But, from time to time, I just get full.  I hit a wall.  I don't want to think, hear or talk about the church.

That's where I got to on Tuesday this week.  It hit me quickly and hard, but by Tuesday evening, I did not want to do one more thing or think one more thought about Freedom Valley Church.  Going to bed on Tuesday, I dreaded Wednesday morning.  The office was a mess and there were 1001 things to do before this weekend's service.

What a difference a day makes; a day with God, that is.  Yesterday morning I knew it was time to disconnect from all the "to dos" and reconnect to the one who can do anything of real value.  I needed a day to live my life and enjoy my God.  I read, I prayed, I wrote some notes in my journal, I got Mexican food, I got ice cream.  Then it happened.  The wall went away.  I felt all my love and vision and energy come back.

As I write this from my messy office, where there are still 1001 things to do, I feel rested and excited about the things I hated yesterday.  What a difference a day makes . . . when you spend it with God.

first monthly service is in the books

Last Sunday (Easter Sunday - April 4), Freedom Valley Church held our first public monthly service.  Hey, I'm probably biased, but I think it was a great success.  Our team was absolutely outstanding and we even met a few new friends along the way!  You can watch the full-length video of that service here (about 55 minutes).  It's not edited at all and was even compressed some, so it's not the greatest quality you'll ever see, but it is the start of something that God has stirred many a heart toward.  And that's saying something!

Our next monthly service is May 2 - same time, same place.  Cinemark @ 71st and 169 - 10am.  Hope to see you there!
