God's Unfailing Love

The longer we've been here in Annapolis, the more I am seeing God's unfailing love lavished on me. I often try to take this new church we are starting into my own hands. It's easy to think it's my responsibility (or our responsibility) to make it all happen and to bring it all together. My intentions are pure- I'm a hard worker, that's all I know to do. God it reminding me to be still and to wait on Him. As I was reading this morning God brought Isaiah 64:4 to me
"Since ancient times no one has heard,
no ear has perceived,
no eye has seen any God besides you,
who acts on behalf of those who wait for him."

I just thank God that he reminds me he's been here all along and has a plan to bring this all together. I am more excited than I ever have been about Revolution Annapolis! I can't wait for 10/10/10 (our official launch date for the church) to come, but I know I need to savor these precious moments and wait for Him. I am watching God craft something out of nothing. We often refer to this new church as our baby church. Just as you wait for a baby to be born we are anticipating this new baby church! God is refining me and my patience and trust in Him. He's reminding me that God brought us here for a reason- to start a new church for people who don't go to church, to show Jesus' radical love on this community through action and to be a community of people that care for one another. He promises- He'll never leave us nor forsake us! (Joshua 1:5) God's unfailing love is real and I'm learning to lean on Him more than ever before.
