This past year has been incredible, and unlike any other year in my 40+ on this earth. As some of you know, early this year I chose to follow a crystal-clear calling of God to leave my full time job and really pour my efforts into WorshipPlanning.com. Helping churches though WorshipPlanning.com has been a passion of mine since it was first launched over 13 years ago. But not until February 17th of this year had I felt led to step out of the boat, among the wind and waves, and walk toward Jesus in this manner.
Since then, not a day goes by that I don’t reflect on that decision. And the reason is, I am so incredibly thankful, everyday, for this opportunity God has given me. The road hasn’t been straight, easy, and worry-free. But one thing is for sure: This is exactly where I am supposed to be, right now. Knowing this feels amazing, and can be described with an illustration of gears. When gears mesh correctly, the system is in sync and movement progresses as it should. The gears may be working hard, but they are working together.
This Thanksgiving, I am especially thankful for God providing the opportunity to serve Him in this capacity, and allowing me to hear his voice along the way. I’m also very thankful for the many wonderful people that God used to provide encouragement. This includes my courageous family, the incredible people here at WorshipPlanning.com, the amazing ministries and churches that we serve, and my F3Nation brothers that offer perpetual encouragement and accountability.
I sincerely hope you and your family have an blessed Thanksgiving, and a spirit-filled holiday season.
