It's beautiful here! I am in Carlsbad, California - half way between San Diego and Orange County. I'm here for a few days to get alone with God, meet with some pastors who have been in ministry a while, and read some books on leadership, balancing ministry and family, and some others.
I have been the lead pastor at CrossWay Church for one week shy of a year. In this year, God has taught me so many things. One of the things that I have learned, is that I don't know anything! Outside of His guidance and His Spirit, I know nothing. Everything I have is in Him and everything I need is found in Him.
Think about it: If Jeremiah 29:11 is true and HE knows the plans that HE has for me, then it's a pretty good idea to get that much closer to HIM.
