The world has been dragged outside of the box a bit this year. I know how it feels; I promise. Having been asked to set aside all that was normal and be willing to think outside of church walls, school buildings, job settings, and ministry boxes out of complete obedience was both our biggest challenge and our greatest gift. Challenge, because it was new and scary. Gift, because when you shake off typical, you get new vision, new perspective, freshness. Embrace the view from the outside, friends. I know everything looks different, but normal is so highly overrated. As things have shifted, allow yourself a chance to breathe and walk the new paths to something adventurous and maybe even beautiful!
I hope you enjoy the following post written in 2013. In what ways has your box been broken down or emptied this year? Are you at a place yet where you can see the benefits to some new vision?
