Last night I had the privilege of spending time with our leadership team [Elders+Staff] here at MCC. We had a great time sharing what God was doing in our lives, discussing our vision and future plans, and even talking about the areas that we need to improve in as a church.
One of the questions we discussed really made me think, so I thought I would share it with you:
What is God teaching you through your greatest limitation?
[This is not an original thought…Craig Groeschel said this at the Leadership Summit…to meet the author of this question, click here.]
For me to answer that question honestly I would say one word: dependence. Through a summer of difficult situations that have piled up one after the other, God has been teaching me to depend on him. Not on my solutions or quick fixes.
I wish I could say that I am totally dependent on God now and not struggling with any doubts or worry, but that is not true. I am a work in progress, and every day God’s faithfulness takes me a little farther on the journey.
So, what is God teaching you through your greatest limitation?
Looking forward to hearing from you.

I think God is trying to teach me to be more patient! I am the most unpatient of people. I get upset over the smallest things. And yesterday I was stuck in BG traffic for 45 minutes trying to get from the Kroger on Scottsville Rd. to I65. I think God was working on me then because with a little talking to him and some breathing exercises, I made it without any major problems or explodes! But I think I could use some more help!
Wow, Jennifer I would have never known about your potential to explode. We will need to be careful in small group and not do anything to set you off. 🙂
To the question, as I shared Wednesday night God is teaching me he is the source of everything I am and have. You think you know things like this and then you learn you only know it in part and so He teaches you a little more.
I am thankful He stills takes the time to try to teach me. I think I would have given up on me some time ago.
I don’t explode that often…I promise! 🙂
