Today LINC Houston celebrates 10 years of ministry at our Annual Gala. I am so happy that we’ve been able to make it this far for this long. Our growth hasn’t always been steady, and sometimes not pretty, but we have grown significantly in our impact across the City. We’ve made lots of mistakes, but God is in control and He’s allowed us to be a blessing to those we serve and to those who serve with us.
There are so many things we want to accomplish but still haven’t. Thankfully, we still have years ahead of us to see some of these dreams become a reality. By God’s grace, thousands of people have been touched by His love in some way. It’s amazing to be a part of what God does, especially when He gets all the credit.
God, I really don’t know how or why You continue to bless me as a leader, especially with all my glaring weaknesses. You do, and I need to learn a little humility and just accept Your undeserved favor. Help me to always remember that I am blessed for the sake of others, not for myself.
Let me never rest too pridefully in “my” successes, nor wallow too long in my mistakes. To do so is to claim credit for what You have done through me. Don’t let me simply be a salesman who makes empty promises, but a man of integrity who does what he says without excuses.
You’ve surrounded me with incredible partners and teammates, and have given me a spouse who supports what You’ve called me to do. I can’t thank you enough for your mercies and your grace, which are new every day.
Thank you for allowing me to take this 10 year journey so far with LINC. Hopefully we’ve only just begun.
