update from yesterday!

"I have a dream of having a church, not like any other church, it won't have traditional stuff, it won't have parents and children split- they will be family taught.  It won't be just about singing but really worshipping Jesus and singing in our spirits to Him.  Healing will take place and praying for each other will be the norm, it will be a huge place that reaches the unreached and the unlovely.  It will be a place that is completely similar to the Acts church and Thessalonian church.  The teachings will be God's word and questions answered.  Bible studies will be offered for more than just an hour or two.  It will be a time to learn and to honor Jesus."
I have been pondering this even more...

One of my strengths is as a Pioneer. I walk way ahead of many to find the gems and jewels in the land.  I look at the history from where we have been and what to look for in the trail ahead. 
I plan way ahead but submit to God and listen for His ever-increasing plan.  He knows where we are to go, He knows what His desire for us is.  Just like when Joshua and Caleb and 10 others went to spy out the land of Canaan and they found huge grapes but they also found a woman named Rahab who hid the spies and saved them, then God saved her family.  Story found in the book of Numbers 13. 

So the reason this is an update is we are not sure if God is ready for us to settle down just yet, there are a lot of wonderful people that need Jesus outside the walls of the church.  In fact, for us to settle down we would become "settlers" and not Pioneers.  I love being a pioneer.  I love relying fully on God to show us where he desires us to grow and go.

I love planning,preparing, doing and believing much in others.  There is a time when I believe we have to take hands off and watch them grow without our constant watching. 

On another note, I have been ordained and have graduated with a 4.0 this year!  I am blown away how much God is working in our lives!  We have seen so much incredible happenings as of late! 

So, are you a settler or a pioneer?  Nothing is wrong with a settler but what are you settling for?  Are you involved in many areas to make a difference outside your settlement?  Have you taught your children to be settlers or pioneers?
