My husband and I are pretty big Jon Acuff fans. It started with Stuff Christians Like and then it was his incredibly inspirational books, Quitter and Start. You see, Jon is a dreamer. And a doer. He lives what he writes about. In fact, he’s in the midst of switching things up and starting something new in his own life these days.
Which is where my husband and I find ourselves right now. Pursuing change. Creating change. Living out changes that we need, that we want, that God is calling us toward.
And it’s scary.
And that’s okay. Because as Jon Acuff pointed out in a recent talk he delivered in Nashville, Advent is a season of change. A season when God created awe-inspiring change in a world that was in desperate need for Him. An awe-inspiring change that came in the form of a baby.
And we are still in desperate need for Him, my husband and I. In order to redeem the brokenness and deep hurts of our marriage. In order to shake off the limits the world places on who we are and what we can do. In order to dream big and change the world.
Because it’s possible. All things are possible with Jesus. Even the scary things.
Especially the scary things.
So, if you’re facing change in your life, this message is for you. If you’ve had a dream whispering to your heart, this message is for you. If you are in need of hearing that it’s okay to be afraid, this message is for you.
Advent is all about change. Big, scary, awe-inspiring, God-sized change.
