quote

Boy, do I resonate with this: I despaired at the thought that my life might slip by without seeing God show Himself mightily on our behalf. I didn’t want merely to mark time. I longed and cried out for God to change everything - me, the church, our passion for people, our praying. One day I told the Lord that I would rather die than merely tread water throughout my career in the ministry... always preaching about the power of the Word and the Spirit, but never seeing it. I abhorred the thought of just having more church services. I hungered for God to break through in our lives and ministry.” - Jim Cymbala, Fresh Wind, Fresh Fire

Hey Jonathan! Sorry I didn't get to see you guys this week! We'll have to get together soon. Tell Liz and the boys Joe & I say hi.

I had to comment because I read this book a couple of years ago and LOVED it! The story of how prayer transformed that church and community is amazing! Happy reading!
