The ministry at Southside has been extraordinary! This past month we watched God captivate and draw three people to a personal relationship with Him, AWESOME! It’s been quite a journey this past year and a half. We have watched God change so many lives.
There is a great sense and excitement within our group of people coming. I hear stories every week from my friends there about how God has used the Southside to change their lives. I get pretty overwhelmed with emotion when I hear their stories of how they now understand that God loves them regardless of their past or current struggles.
People are finding their identity in God’s grace rather than past failures or successes. I love that people are getting clean from addictions and allowing God to change the atmosphere of their lives.
We have been discussing a lot about choices this past season. Coming to the crossroads and either moving forward into the unknown while God leads us or turn and go back down the road we just came and try to do it different. The reason we want to go back down the familiar road is that we understand it, we can control it and we can predict it; the difficult thing is we almost always fall back into the struggles. That’s why it’s so important for God to change the culture of our lives. It comes down to trust, Isaiah 55:8-9 tells us:
|“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, says the LORD.|
|For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”
We must trust and allow God to lead us, guide us, speak to us and change us… If you are interested in the ministry at Southside please contact me!
