27 May Overflow #9
On March 27th, 2019 a massive weather system hit the South Island. The Waiho river , near Franz Joseph Glacier, turned into a torrent and the force generated by the flood of water and debris tore down a strongly engineered bridge like it was a toy made from balsa wood.
Overflow is not a nice idea
It is a powerful idea.
In this example the force was destructive but what if we could harness the power of overflow for good?
What if we could unleash a force of women determined to show the love of Christ in their communities?
I think it could turn the nation upside down. I think it could turn the tide of antagonism against Christianity. I think our friends, our families, our communities and cities could heal. Depression, loneliness , violence, self harm….a thing of the past. Powerful.
But what will it take?
Together it will take:
As individuals it will take us to:
Lift the lid off our lives.
Let the fearfully and wonderfully made us out.
Let our gifts, talents and story help others.
Let the God of hope, who resides in us through faith, flow out of our lives.
Create time and space in your world for mission.
O the places you’ll go and the adventures you’ll have….
Not a nice idea
A powerful idea
“May the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit “
