I just got back to the office after doing a quick walk through at Gunston Middle School with some of our team leaders. Honestly, every time I go there, I get more and more excited for what God is going to do through this space.
It’s an amazing facility (from the parking, to the lobby, to the theater, to kids space) that He’s allowed us to use. I loved walking through the space imagining what it’s going to look like on July 10th when we’re all there together!
We also took a few minutes to pray over the space. As we were doing that, I kept thinking of Proverbs 16:3, “Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.” That’s not a promise that God will do whatever we want. It’s an invitation to trust God that He will do what’s best for His glory and our good. The word translated commit literally means, “to roll.” That creates such a beautiful picture of what this verse is really saying – roll the burden of your work to the Lord since He is the One with the power to make it happen.
That’s what I want to be doing as we get ready to move into Gunston on July 10th- rolling the burden to God. He’s the One who can give us favor with the administration. He’s the One who will show us how to reach our community. He’s the One that will establish relationships with families who attend Gunston. He’s the One that will enable us to reach both sides of Glebe. He’s the One who will bring all things to pass.
Please join me in committing Gunston to the Lord over the next two weeks. When the Spirit prompts you, take a minute to pray for the faculty and staff of that school, the families who attend Gunston and the work the Lord wants to do through us as we gather in the theater on Sunday mornings. Today, I’m specifically asking the Lord to give all of our Sunday morning team leaders wisdom as they figure out how to make the best use of the new space.
I honestly can’t wait for you all to see the space! But for now, let’s just be praying towards what God is going to do there in a few short weeks.
