On this date last year, Melissa and I boarded a plane in Dayton OH and arrived in Atlanta GA for a weekend visit and interview with Velocity Church. It was shortly after visiting that we decided to accept the position with Velocity and move to Atlanta.
A lot has happened in a year’s time: we moved to Atlanta, bought our first house, and on Monday welcomed my daughter Savannah into the world. Through it all God has provided and been our source of encouragement and support. And while our time in Atlanta has not turned out the way that I had hoped it would, I could not be more happy and blessed to be a child of God, a husband, and father.
I can only begin to imagine where I will be a year from today and what I will be doing, but my hope and prayer is that I am in the same place in my life with God and with my family.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, 21to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” (Ephesians 3:20. 21)
