After reading these two pages which were written back in 1987, I am pondering again yet another confirmation of how much I needed (still need) a detox… and full repair…
(From Danny Lehman’s book: “Bringin’ ‘Em Back Alive“)
Constant brainstorming meetings year, after year, over who (men / women) and what ‘methods’ of disciplemaking is right or effective, and then shelving everything we discussed, and coming up with little or no fruit, has sucked the life out of me…
I wanted to see change in the hearts of men, women, boys and girls, of entire families, a city, the world…
Arguing over a map and who is qualified to read the map (men only or women too?) will never get you on the journey. (Sometimes, you just gotta get in the boat and let the wind blow you to where the Spirit is leading. Control people hate this. Let the Spirit speak and lead! Surrender. He is God.)
For now, I’m in a meadow with Jesus. He’s my detox guide as I heal from fatigue. He has rescued me from the storm.
He has graciously delegated everything off of my plate to spend more time hearing His loving voice.
