Personally, I am amazed at how God takes the little we have and does what he does best...multiply it! There really is no limit. Yeah, we have limits, but God...nah, he just does what he does. So, I'm sitting at one of my two jobs and a thought runs through my head, "plant a church." Seriously, for whatever reason God just gives me this wierd thought. I know, it's kind of like that Kevin Costner film where this voice says, "if you build it, they will come." Well, the only thing in common with that is he was surrounded by corn (yep, that happened), and lived in the state of Iowa (that's me too). Other than that it's just two outdated guys trying to listen to a voice coming from the air sounding like James Earl Jones.
So, here I am responding to this dream I have had for over two years. Planting a church and expecting God to do something with it. Here's what's really cool. I'm surrounded by a great team. People with the same dream and vision. I'm not sure if they heard voices coming from the corn or not, but hey, at this point - it doesn't matter. Our hearts are united and the our leader said, go for it. Get ready Oskaloosa...a little boy is showing up with five loaves and two fish...and looking for a miracle!
