One year ago today, I became the pastor of Grace Baptist Church. I wish I had some wise and profound reflections on all the things I’ve learned and all the ways I’ve grown in the last year, but I don’t. It’s not that I haven’t learned and grown, because I have. Immensely. And only due to the awesome grace of God.
I’d like to say that to even begin such a list would not do justice to the innumerable ways God has been working on me in the last year. This would be true, but the whole truth is that I don’t have a definitive list of ways I’ve grown because I haven’t arrived in any area. I’m still learning and growing. And by the grace of God, I will continue to learn and grow for the rest of my life.
God, I pray that You would use me. May I be faithful, and show all people how awesome You are. Amen.
