Back in Town

May 12, 2010

Jessica and I have returned from showing off our daughter McKenna to our family and friends back home in Michigan.  And of course, they loved her!  How could they not?

This trip was by far the best time Jessica and I have had while in Michigan.  The relentless pressure from our parents and grandparents for our return to West Michigan made us feel loved; however, can’t say just yet that moving back is God’s plan for us.

The reality is–with the arrival of McKenna–the desire to move back home has increased (our family is taking full advantage of our temporarily weak mind setting).

I understand that we experience one life, and one life only on this side of Heaven, and family is beyond important to Jessica and me.  As much as I want to settle down and buy a house and spend the rest of my life comfortably positioned in West Michigan, I can’t help but think that there is so much more to this life.

Christianity in many ways has lost its edge.  There is no adventure, no excitement, no fun.  Is that a result from the comfortable lifestyle that many Christians want?  Buy a house, work hard, don’t complain–much anyways? 

I can’t stand by and watch my life fade away little by little while God is looking on–shaking His head thinking “if only you knew the greatness I desire for you.”  I believe God wants to do something amazing and He is looking for this generation to step up and conduct a movement of God that has never been experienced.
