I don’t remember how I responded. But it got me thinking.
I’m really doing fine with closing the church. I miss it. Alot. I hope I get to be a pastor of a church again.
And yes, we’ve been through more “tough” situations in the last 3 1/2 years than I can remember. I’ve been in leadership positions since I was a kid. But pastoring a church was the first time I was required to be a leader.
But God never promised me a thriving, vibrant church. Or tons of healings or salvations. Or anything. As far as I know, He didn’t promise it to anyone that called VCW “home.”
All I know is that God called my family to Waterville. He promised to be with us. And He is.
And we’ve gotten to see the Kingdom break out. People have been healed. Lives have been changed. People are following Jesus more closely than they were earlier.
It’s really good. And I wouldn’t want to be any place else.
