“So, what do you do?”
Every time someone asks me this question, I literally giggle almost every time. It once was simple to respond with “I’m a Graphic Designer for Basic Invite.” Everyone knew what that meant, what it involved for the most part, maybe there were a couple questions about more specifics, but it was pretty easy to define. Now, however, it’s not so simply-put.
“So, what do you do?”
These last 8 months have been filled with learning. Learning how to see the person next to me. The stranger that at the exact same time of the day, and exact same square of the sidewalk, I “just-so-happen” to cross paths with while walking to my car. I’m learning how to be intentional with people. The ones I live with, the ones I pretty much live with, the ones that live a little further, and ones that I haven’t gotten to know that well yet.
I’m learning how to be a bigger server. My roommate… she’s wonderful at it. She’s been showing me what it looks like to serve other people in both big ways and little ways and I get to watch how much it blesses the people she’s serving. I want to adopt that selflessness.
I’m learning how to be bold and obedient. How to really recognize what God has called me to and what He’s speaking to me about in the current season. How to not buy into all the lies and fears and just step out and do it. How to speak bold truths into people and call things out in them.
I’m learning how to be a disciple and a discipler. Discipleship is the focus. How to have a deeper relationship with Jesus, and how to choose Him, His grace, and His love every morning.
I’m learning that being a “Church-Planter” is not a job, it’s just life. As I make space for Jesus to pour into me, He will use me to pour into others. It literally is all about learning how to very much do-life with people. How to live in community, and put Jesus first in this crazy, fast-paced, America. Here’s what it like looks like in Pics!
