Arriving at the church for the Launch Evaluation we didn't know what to expect. The church was massive! West Ridge has 5000+ people. We didn't know how to feel. You try not to pass judgment on a building or a people but sometimes it is hard not to.
We arrived highly skeptical of a calling, mostly to safeguard our hearts. Josh was waiting for the - no. We weren't sure we were in the right place but as the time went on, with every passing hour, we felt more in the right place. It felt like confirmation that we were doing what the Lord had been preparing for us before time.
This wisdom here was priceless. Men and women spoke from all stages of the ministry journey. It seemed each person said something Josh and I had been thinking months prior. It got deeper and deeper as we were asked to speak openly about the desires of our hearts. We were encouraged to really express any doubts and fears. In a way, the renewal was overwhelming. To feel engulfed by God, in a sense. Its the only way I can describe it.
I feel like, in that moment, we felt God's true covering or presence. There was no fear or doubt, only peace, and assurance that we had arrived at the perfect time. In the following days, the only struggle was now unpacking all the truth we felt God laying on our hearts. We had a calling, and God would reveal it in time.

Walk humbly with God and do the work at your hands....
