Well, it's the end of the year again and boy did that GO FAST!!!!! Isn't that what we always say about it? The year's end comes and what do we say, "well I don't even remember where that year went?" or… "Where does the time go???" or "Boy, they grow up so fast…"
And Isn't that the truth really? Time slows down for no one except ONE. And the more we do and more we go, the more we feel cosnstricted by the very things that were meant to bring us life. As we talked about this last week, it's time for us to take a real hard, true look at our lives and ask some seriously tough questions.
1 – What is one thing that if I did it really well this year, it would change the outcome of my entire life and those around me?
2 – What are the ALL of things that I can add to my, "Don't do" list?
3 – What is something I would like those I love most to say about me after I am gone?
4 – What is the one thing I am great at? Something that I am special and known for that I should develop?
5 – What thing, activity, relationship or event takes me away from my GOD given purpose?
It's time to ask the tough questions. It's time to get some tough answers and even poll the crowd around us and see what we were made for. It's time to stop just surviving and START REALLY LIVING! You were not made to survive, but to LIVE! TO LOVE! TO BE!
So, with that said, we are going to take some necessary steps as a community as the Tapestry the year. The necessary steps mentioned above and more to make sure that we are able to "Recognize" this day of GOD's visitation in our lives, to embrace the important things HE is speaking to us this year and to cut out everything that takes us away from those things. We are about to embark on a journey of maturity in really dynamic relationship and you can join in.
You can replace some old habits with some of the ones here below:
1 – Get involved with one of the events, seminars or trainings, or join a LIFE (Tapis) group (starting at the end of January after our Small group fair).
2 – You can come an worship with us. We are starting a NEW Sunday evening experiential, worship and relational service just like the old days… (ahhh Tapestry vintage 2004).
3 – You can download our brand new app for the iPhone or the Android at http://app.tapestrylife.org/ .
4 – You can follow the Tapestry Life Devo blog for weekly devotional thoughts. (Hopefully soon, they will be daily…)
5 – Or join in on the Bible section of our app for the daily reading and daily listening section. That's right, the full Bible, broken down to daily readings so we as a family can go through it this year.
6 – Join in on our upcoming series about our values that will start in January with a twist on RELATIONSHIPS!
And lastly, all of this is coming to you this way along with a whole LOT MORE this year to focus us in on one truth. The Tapestry exists so that we can learn together how to do relationships that don't suck.
What do you say. Let's kick this NEW YEAR up a notch together. Let's get a bit creative. Let's get a bit relational. Let's get a LOT EXPERIENTIAL and together experience, worship, know, live and love.
What do you say?
I am in. How 'bout you?
Well, I have to run. It's almost midnight and I have one more day before 2010 ends and I need to make the best of it. Why don't you join in with me from DAY ONE and make this the best 2011 you can ever have? I know Poppa wants that for you. I know Jesus is ready. I can hear the Spirit calling. How 'bout you?
Love you guys. Thanks for letting me ramble. It makes me feel good about myself. Just shake your head up and down…
