Hear from Carey Nieuwhof… about a few of his thoughts while at Orange ’10!
I’m at one of my favourite places (the Orange Conference) with some of my very favourite people. (If you’re not at Orange, catch glimpses of it online here).
Conferences are often places for information and ideas. And I’m a strategy wonk for sure.
But what I love about Orange10 is that this year, it feels like God is trying to do something in us. This conference has felt even more personal than usual…more like God was trying to speak to me and in me. Which is so helpful. Often we just want God to do something through us.
But God usually won’t do anything through us until he does something in us.
One way I know where I’m at spiritually is how I feel when I sing the words to a worship song. This year, I’m not only singing the words, I’m feeling them. There’s a sense of awe and wonder that’s returning to my heart and life that is so refreshing. I’ve had those moments where I think “If only everyone could get this”! Inspiration is the rocket fuel that propels action, and when you are actually inspired, it can bring life like nothing else.
So…Orange leaders….what’s your experience been? What is God doing in you? What’s been your biggest “God is doing this in me” experience so far?
