You know I really love Daphne, AL. The people, the climate, the beaches close by, the lack of congestion, and oh yes, there is this great opportunity I have had for 4 years to be a part of a wonderful automotive organization. That being said, I rendered my notice today to retire from here and the car business effective May 1st.
I got a call from God, and he said he wants me to come home to the ATL, for a couple of reasons, one of which I will share in this blog.
I have been given the opportunity to be supported in full time ministry of my choosing, and of course I accepted. This would include helping with Across The Bridge at Campus Church as well as any other recovery ministry that wants help and allowing me just to follow the path He puts me on in other directions, including exploring a new church, The Church of the Lost and Found.
Sound crazy, you bet, I just love it when God changes directions for me in a heartbeat. I love these folks at Eastern Shore Toyota and Hyundai, we have served together well and forged incredible friendships, but He has spoken and I will not turn back. I am Coming Home in May.
But this is really not about me, it is about the many great men and women who have come before who have paved the way to serve. We are the hands and feet of a merciful God and when He allows us more time to talk about Him it is a distinct privilege. But I cannot hide my excitement about the ability to free lance to wherever the journey goes, and the opportunity to serve others who are lost.
See you soon and let's hear it ATL, Rise Up! In more ways than one.
