Church Planting / Headline / Video / February 16, 2011

Yesterday, Jon McCallon posted this video on his blog. I kinda felt like he was cheating on his 30 blogging challenge because he didn’t really write very much. Then I watch the video…

I no longer feel like it would be cheating to post this video. So now, I share it with you.

I’d love to know this film said to you. Leave me a commit and let me know!

Beautiful animation!

For me, it was a story of failure and then triumph. And how neither was the result of what the individual did but rather, a beautiful serendipitous* happening.

*Yeah, I consulted a thesaurus.

I sincerely teared up at the end.

Gosh, this is beautiful – a beautiful reminder to me that what we see is not what really is. That often times, we just need to keep working [in faith] even when it seems everything else is just demolished around us.

Doug Cobb…what is up?

Let’s grab lunch. Good thesaurus work by the way.

Just reminds me that when everything seems to be falling apart around me, not to worry because God is with me & will see me through the storm.

Hey Honey,

I LOVE this video! It is such a good reminder that even when we think it is all wrecked, the passionate Lover of Our Souls can take havoc wreaked and bring abundant new life! Sometimes incredible new life that could not have come about more perfectly in any other way than the painful one. That part is never clear until hindsight, but I know it is coming. I have faith it will come!

So grateful He works all things for the good of those who love Christ Jesus!

On a lighter note… be careful where you plant them. They spread like Kudzu!!!

Sowing seeds of God’s love by saying a kind word, sharing God’s word, helping someone when most needed,freely giving of oneself for God’s work – then, when trouble comes and times are very dark and cold (for either the giver or receiver) – growth comes from those gifts and God’s light shines it’s brightest. Some of the best growth comes from the coldest of times because God is blessing us with HIS WARMTH. The same of sowing Godly seeds in our children, the rewards are endless just as God’s love is endless.

Everyday God’s calling us to partner with Him in His redemptive mission to reach the world! He calls us to scatter seed and commit to praying that it lands on good soil that will reap a harvest 100x! It’s about expecting great things for God, attempting great things for God! In & out of season…God calls us to share the hope that we have and if we’ll do that…God will do more than we could ever ask for or imagine! We’re not always going to get it right, but with God’s help–He will magnify our efforts, taking the simplest act of compassion and love to build something that is far greater than any one of us! Let’s sow, pray and trust the Lord of the Harvest! Dave, thanks for blogging again! Love ya bro!

Wow, now THAT was what I was trying to say, Scott. I can never get the thoughts I have in my head and my heart into print but you nailed it. Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Bonnie

I think it speaks a story of redemption for a young blogger who was in a moment considered bending the rules of a contest. Now it speaks of restoration because a friend posted it.

I thought it was beautiful…just goes to show that God can take the bad stuff and make it amazing!

Oh and Serendipity is one of my favorite words. A fortunate accident!

Bonnie, I think you nailed it in your first entry! We have to live life moment by moment & make it count!

McCallon..even if you are a cheater…thanks for blessing us. Hope you’re doing well bro! So proud of you and the difference you’re making!
