At the beginning of 2022, I had a dream where I felt like the Lord was speaking to the church that it was crucial for us right now to break away from doing this year in the same way we did last year.
In fact, it felt like a warning that unless we did pioneer this year in some way we would find ourselves feeling dry, stale, and outdated.
But it was more than that. He showed me that places of comfortability can become ceilings that then over time become compromise.
At the beginning of 2021, I felt it – the grace period on certain activities, methods, and messages was beginning to wane and God was wanting us to dream-forward with Him.
Then that dreaming turned into an awkward and painful wrestle with the new that felt so obscure and what was clearly changing and ending. It was a difficult balance or dance to maintain.
The other difficulty was trying to reconcile what we expected and what we were seeing. The door we thought we were opening didn’t end up being the door that came before us, and the package destiny was wrapped in just felt unfamiliar.
I know you had to see many seeds fall to the ground and die in 2021. I know that pain. I know it doesn’t feel fair and you still have so many questions unanswered.
I know that you had to close more doors than you opened and leave behind far more than you were picking up.
I know it was a big sacrifice and I know that few understood you for it.

God help us to close the door to the things of this world, to our idols
