I needed to clear out all the past ramblings that covered this page, to start new, to start fresh, exposing the depth of who I am and what GOD is doing here in Mijas, Spain. I am not satisfied with the general surface subjects, quick stories, random pictures, but must share my heart where there is something real, and true to speak. I don't want to speak what you want to hear, but speak what you need to hear, and what I need to share. And so here I am.
I am not here to coast through, to waste this time, to go through the movements. It isn't just a season of my life. THIS IS LIFE. So I choose to invest in others as scary as that can be. I choose to stop waiting to follow, but to step up and lead. I choose to stop waiting for things to happen, but make things happen. My trust grows. My heart exposed. My dreams explode. And as I take each step I begin to discover a deeper Love. Fears fade. Excuses disperse. and I choose to be, to move, to serve, to love in the midst of it all.
Mijas, has quickly become more than just a location, but home. It is more than the lectures and discussions that teach me about relationships, about teams, about making a plan. It is more than the community in which I live, where I can ask honest questions, where we share visions, where if we chose, we can get to the heart of each other. It is more than the "ministries" I am a part of, the soup kitchen, that continues to give me a stronger heart for those on the street, that teaches me about servanthood, and to allow GOD to bring an understanding between me and those I listen to. It is more than the chapel on the side of the hill where I hike to, to release and to intercede. It is home. It is life. It is the heartbeat of it all together that is...simply put...LIFE.
