While Kurt and Josh deserve their own FAQ pages, I’ve had people reach out to me with similar questions. What I think is at the root of these questions is an anxiety that drives each of us to be looking over the fence to see what the next person is doing. My encouragement this week is to help you realize that God created you for the role you’re in; with God you are the perfect fit for what you are doing.

Whether you were hired, volunteered, or left the room at the wrong time during the church business meeting, you are in the spot you are in for a purpose. God made that purpose and has given you the means to accomplish that purpose.

You are not supposed to win.
Our programs and events will never measure up to the standard of success in this world. We are innately conditioned to peer over that fence to see what the next guy is doing; we are not called to do that. There is no better place to be than where God has placed you. Thank you for being there.
