3 Key Lessons I Learned in 2014
I don’t know about you, but 2014 was a year of the unexpected. Among many unexpected things was moving my family to Nashville, TN and being offered a full-time marketing position at a new worship imprint, CentricWorship. 2014 was an incredible year with many highlights and seeing God open amazing doors. It was not, however, empty of challenges and ups and downs.
As I reflect back on the year 2014, here are a few of the things I learned:
1. You will never know the true impact you are making, this side of heaven. (Click to tweet!)
I feel like I’ve met more people, in person and online, in 2014 that have been impacted by All About Worship and the other things I am involved in, than I have ever before. It really hit me this year that, this side of heaven, we only see a small glimpse of how God is using our lives. He probably does that intentionally to keep us humble.
2. God doesn’t just think outside the box, He doesn’t have a box. (Click to tweet!)
Often we like to put God in a box...a box that makes us feel comfortable, a box that doesn’t stretch our faith, a box that we think we deserve. This year God opened so many doors I only dreamed of and made things happen in such perfect timing that there was no other explanation, but...God.
3. We must always put relationships first. (Click to tweet!)
I’ve learned early on in ministry that people matter. People matter to God; people matter to me. I value relationships above projects, opinions, differences, etc. This year I saw God restore a friendship that I never thought could be restored, in a way that I never thought would happen. I’ve also had to make some tough calls with people I’ve hired, but tried my best to do it in a way that honors and values the person and the relationship. This year I saw how God will bless you and show you favor when you put relationships first.
Of course, there are many other lessons I’ve learned this year, both on a personal and professional level. I am really excited to see what God has in store for 2015! I know there will be challenges and difficulties, but I know God is in control. He loves me. He enjoys me. And, He will work all things together for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28).
