Whew! What a weekend!

I know you’re tired. I know you’re in awe. I know God has moved mightily in your midst these last few weeks. So, be encouraged, even if you didn’t reach your goal, even if what you wanted or thought would happen didn’t…. God IS on the move and His timing is best.

Get your team back together now– like right away and without emotion talk about what went well and what could have gone better and what didn’t work at all. Don’t harbor hurt feelings, that’s the enemy trying to discourage. Ultimately, we are all on the same team here, Team Jesus, and the work you’ve done matters. It matters to Him, it matters in the Kingdom and it matters to the children whose lives you’ve saved.

I am sure you thought of fun and creative ideas that you didn’t have time to implement. That’s OK: write them down for next year. Keep a file where you’ll put various ideas throughout the year and pull from them next.

Lastly, take some time alone just to process all that you’ve experienced. What is God speaking to YOU? He has a plan for your life! He has a strategy! What and where is He leading you and are you allowing Him to? What did He awaken in your heart? It doesn’t matter if you don’t see a way to make it happen because He does! And, when He gives you and impossible dream, that is most assuredly Him saying IT IS POSSIBLE! Jesus, take the wheel. You’ve got this.

Get excited. The BEST is YET to COME!
