I guess you could call this Thursday afternoon commentary. I just got back from our Elevation Staff Advance (we advance, not retreat :)).
This was the first staff advance that the spouses of our church had ever attended. I felt so honored to be a part. I felt a part, I felt like I was included in on the vision of our church moving forward this year. I was brought up to speed on things that are happening. I got to see our staff praise each other for an hour and I got to celebrate them. I got to fellowship at the meat house (Brazilian Steakhouse:)) and in the car with some of the other wives (some of my favorite people in the whole world). I got to stand before our staff and personally thank them for all that they do to make Elevation happen. I got to worship God and take communion with my husband (a rare thing since he usually leads it).
And the best part, God spoke to me. He told me that I have been operating in the flesh on things that I used to do in the Spirit. He told me to stop that. To return to a keen sense of His presence and my need for Him in the small things of my life. Like raising my boys and supporting my husband.
Yeah. That's all I am going to say about that.
I am enjoying the last few days of Summer and bracing myself for an awesome Fall. Get ready Elevation, God is about to do some amazing things in and through us. Get ready.
