Running With Purpose
Sometimes it takes a few laps of the oval before you realise why you are running. I had spent a ton of time heading in the wrong direction until God drew me towards studying at Harvest. I started studying a Diploma but quickly shifted into a Bachelor degree because my hunger for knowing God’s word was growing, and it was being strengthened by great teaching.
At the same time, I felt the calling towards planting a church, and the longer I sat with this plan, the more I realised every gifting I had ever received from the Holy Spirit moved me closer to that goal. I was not to compromise on the journey.
Our vocations and our ministry don’t need to be two separate things. Wherever we walk, we can determine the atmosphere: that is, our full-time ministry calling. Now I have planted that church, I am continually blessed by what God has sown in me during my time at Harvest … going deeper with God is always better than running around in circles!
