Do you remember “Stretch Armstrong”? If you answered yes, then you are old like me! If you answered no, Google it!
I feel that God has me in a “Stretch Armstrong” time in my life. God wants me to go to the next level, to go beyond myself, to reach past my expectations. God wants to stretch me.
Its the most exciting time in my life but also the most stretching that I have experienced in a long time. I believe God is doing this for a number of reasons.
First of all, it is very easy to get comfortable. It is easy to just hang on for the ride and not be pushed and stretched. God did not save us to be comfortable. God is in the stretching business.
Secondly, because this year as a church, we will be pursuing a different level that will require a deeper walk, more wisdom and radical leadership. I believe God has given me a personal specific calling and I believe He has also given New Season a specific calling. God has confirmed to me the intensity of that calling. I really do believe we can change the world.
On February 22 (this Sunday) we celebrate 7 years as a church. We are opening New Season South Paulding this Sunday! Help us get the word out and come help!
Get out of your comfort zone and stretch with us! Allow God to stretch you. You will go so much farther, way beyond what you can imagine.
Thirdly, call us crazy but we are opening a third campus – New Season Tennessee. Lord willing, we will open on March 22.You can imagine how stretched we are. We are walking in a deeper level of faith trusting our Father to see us through.
I had a Stretch Armstrong when I was a kid and I pulled him every way imaginable. Even though I abused that toy and stretched him, he never broke. It’s tough at times but being in a Stretch Armstrong season with God is truly amazing.
