Saying Goodbye Is Difficult
We Want To Be As Good At Saying Goodbye As We Are At Saying Hello
We Don’t Always Get To Keep Our Fruit
As a church plant, we have the privilege of building relationships deeply that are founded o the Gospel. We have the joy of welcoming neighbors who have become brothers and sisters. Sometimes, though, we have the opportunity to say goodbye as well. Though this can hurt, it’s oftentimes no less an opportunity for joy than in welcoming others.
This next week, one of our dearest and closest friends will be moving back to the Midwest. She’s leaving in faith and for the purpose of taking the Gospel to yet another group of people who need it just as much as Santa Anans. This is cause for joy and celebration. Why? Because God is behind it and is working for His glory and the salvation of others. Let’s say goodbye well and allow these to be opportunities to grow in our ability to trust God.
