I was prepared for disappointment but not years of disappointment...I wasn't prepared to be a disappointment.
Jeff Manion's session was my favorite. We will play this one in our services some day after the Summit DVD's come out. Manion talked about living in "the land between." Like the Israelites in the wilderness, living between Egypt and the Promised Land, we go through wilderness times in our lives.
The land between is hard to go through and it can be long, but it is fertile ground for transformational growth. But growth is not automatic. There is danger to our souls in the land between. Complaint against God can set in, but trust evicts complaint.
Declaration: I will continue to trust God in the land between. I will rejoice.
