Today I thought about what season I am in…I am reminded visibly of the fact that God has changed my season! For the first time In 17 years I am not leading a youth service I am sitting in an adult service waiting for the next season to begin! Awkward…YES! Frustrating…A LITLE! Discouraging…NO WAY! Expecting…ABSOLUTELY! If you don’t recognize where you are, then you might miss your season! I am now more than ever determined to walk in the season that God has for my life…seasons come and go, but some are just off the charts life changing moments you know that you know God is working supernaturally in!
A word for youth pastors…you cannot do ministry the same way you have always done it and expect to continue to see bigger results. Season…it’s one of shifting and changing. You have to shift your mindset from what you have done and done well, to what you can do and do better. Look for opportunities to squeeze every ounce of experience out of! If you are determined to reach a generation, then you have to constantly change the way you do things in order to reach the next generation. Are you willing and ready for the challenge to reach a tough generation. The unchurched, the hurting, the lost, the broken, the over entertained, the heartless, the weak, the proud…Students from all walks of life and from every school in your area. This is why you do what you do! God has not positioned you in a place to lead a dodgeball team, he has positioned you to lead a generation to experience the power of His presence!
What season are you in? Recognize it and walk in it!
