I met with one of our leaders of Refresh tonight. We met together to plan for this next season and ask God what He desires. Refresh isn’t in a bad place in the moment but to be honest we our very stagnant and it’s been obvious that God has more in store. So we came together to see what we can do to improve this ministry and keep it more vibrant.
We came up with amazing new ideas and plans for our next steps. I seriously cannot wait to go into action to see these plans come alive. It was a true blessing to come as one body tonight and have God reveal to us His heart.
But what was more of a blessing was taking a step back and thinking back to our roots and foundations of Refresh. Before we started all the planning and brainstorming we asked ourselves a very important question that we don’t ask as often as we should. What’s the purpose of Refresh?
It was great to think back and remember why we even started this ministry two years ago. To remember our purpose and the foundations Refresh was made upon. But most importantly it was a blessing to be reminded of our theme verse:
“he saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of his mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit,”
God has reminded me today of one of the key elements of ministry. To never forget the reason and foundation of why we do what we do.
I saw God today.
