I think I had my eyes opened today. I’ve been living in a bubble and not really seeing the people around me.
I attended a one-day seminar/conference/retreat/you-pick-a-name-for-it called Spark, about how to intentionally create relationships with unbelievers.
I never realized how much time I spend in my little Christian bubble with my Christian activities and my Christian friends and am blind to the people around me who have needs and hurts and fears.
I don’t know how this will work out for me, practically speaking, but I know I can never go back to who I was this morning.
That’s how it goes when you learn or try something new. You get stretched and you can never go back to your original shape. You may not notice it or feel it, but you are a different person. You have been transformed.
I’m so glad I got stretched today. I’m even more glad I was surrounded by people that have already walked the same road and others who are just as ready and willing as I am to walk it.
I can’t wait to see what great things God will do through our little bit of agreement and obedience.
May God stretch you into something new and beautiful. May your life become a spark that ignites a flame that burns passionately for His glory.
