Well despite still being at home recovering from surgery- I could not miss the Groundbreaking for our new church. I made it to the service and it was great to get out. It was hot and I moved really slow. I really felt like I was in a fog but I was able to worship God. I was able to thank God for all He has done and is doing in our church. I was able to watch our Co-pastors Jim and Allan move dirt with the bulldozers and then later there special shovels. It was a great day in the life of our church and I am glad I could be present.
God has allowed our church to be in a great position in all arenas to begin working on a whole new church. Our entire church will move locations. It has been a great journey following God in all this. An exciting time but more than that - it was a historic day. A day I pray the children I have the privilege to minister to will look back one day when they are the leaders of the church and say - yes, I remember when God allowed us to break ground on this building and wow what this new facility in the new place has enabled us to do for God!
I couldn't help but cry as I watched the boys and girls at the service - some so little they were uncomfortable, some happy to dig in the dirt with the little shovels they were given, some that sat quietly listening and taking it all in, some that didn't really have a clue what was going on but ALL such a part of the GENERATIONS campaign, ALL truly blessed, ALL I pray will be used of God to change their generations and the generations that come to live for the King of Kings!
What a great day!
Yes, it did make me tired- I came home and took a nap but well worth it!
