At the End of DayOne: 10/25-26/2014
We all had the opportunity this week to reflect and/or commit to supporting DayOne.
Yes, this has been about plans for building and multiplying the local church. But in every conversation we have had, and in every prayer we've voiced, we've also hoped this campaign would make room for God to move in our lives.
As we all had the chance to make decisions or commitments, we had a moment to sort out what matters to us, where and how we trust. We had a chance to hear from God what might be possible in our lives and accounts. We likely wrestled over what it might look like to give up something we love for something we love more.
I've been thinking about these words a lot this week:
"The greatest things are accomplished in silence—not in the clamor and display of superficial eventfulness, but in the deep clarity of inner vision, in the almost imperceptible start of decision, in quiet overcoming and hidden sacrifice." — Romano Guardini
I imagine our church is filled with these quiet starts right now. For those of you who joined in, may the coming days bring assurance and joy that can only come from the God of daily bread.
