Morris’ Musings: One Friday Morning

One Friday Morning…

For those of you who know me or having been following my blogs for the last few months, you know that I am in a significant transition of life. Significant, heck–IT IS HUGE! God continues to be faithful, although I am often unfaithful.

Several weeks ago, a friend approached me about the possibility of planting a church. GULP! Over the last 5 – 6 years, God has blessed me with the incredible opportunities to work with church planters in Long Island, Seattle, Vancouver, Gallup, Mexico, Uganda, India, and China. There is nothing that blesses me more the seeing the adventurous and unselfish spirit of the church planters God has brought into my life.

BUT, me? Morris a church planter? Morris adventurous? Morris unselfish? Surely this can’t be God’s plan for me. SURELY, it can’t be.

However, over the next few weeks, God began to give me little nudges to take a step to explore this further. I would take a step and wait. Then God would sent another confirmation and then I would take one more step.

All of these steps led up to last Friday morning–I was scheduled to make a vision trip to El Paso to see to what God was doing there and if I was to join Him there. OH MY SOUL!!

Friday morning was a dreary day in NW Houston…cloudy, rainy, sticky…a lovely day to fly. So, I get up and start loading the dogs into the car. By the time this is done, I am wet and stinky. I pull out of the driveway and I boldly proclaim to God–I am NOT going to El Paso. This is craziness. I will reimburse SBTC for my plane ticket and I will stay home. I CANNOT DO THIS!

In a quiet, gentle voice God spoke to my spirit with these words. “FINALLY–You are right where I want you. Now, you are ready for My next steps in your life journey.”

About this time, I turned right onto Northpointe Drive and this vibrant rainbow shot across the sky–a precious reminder that I am in a covenant relationship with a covenant keeping God. Just as He was faithful to the promises He made to Moses, He will be faithful to the call and promises He places in my life.

Needless to say–I went to El Paso!

Morris planting a church still sounds like craziness to me, but I move forward today taking a step at a time…

    Just completed Max Lucado’s book “Grace” it still amazes me that God loves us so much that His grace is given inspite of our unwillingness at times to stop & listen. Not only is He faithful but our God is awesome! Blessed redeemer!

    For He Is Able!
