Becareful What You Pray For

Several years ago Pastor Dino Rizzo told Jeff and I that if you take the people no one wants then God will give you the ones that everyone wants.

That statement affected us so much that when we started Lifepoint Church 3 years ago that was our prayer. “God, give us the ones that no one wants” .

Today as I reflect on one of our most powerful services to date and I read through prayer cards, I can’t help but thank God for answering our prayers. Now if you go to Lifepoint, don’t think that I am dissing you. The statement and the prayer are in reference to people that have been thrown under the bus, rejected, hurt, people with addictions, anger problems, social issues, etc. I would pretty much say that this list is a good description of Lifepoint Church.

The world may have given up on these people, their families may have given up on them and their friends may have given up on them but the truth is that God hasn’t and He is just getting started with these folks. That’s the beautiful part of the story. Our church is so full of potential and full of people that are truly being change by the love of Christ that it makes me crazy excited.

I can’t wait to see this group of Lifepointer’s fully engaged in God’s plan for their lives. It’s going to be awesome!
