Servant Shoutout by Jackie Black: Skipping a shoutout?! What is happening… a praise! A little personal encouragement – maybe you do not need it but I do!

Late, last Saturday night, I flew back from vacation to find out we were still and yet again displaced and OH! meeting in the afternoon (#throwback #churchplant). The post-vacation glow faded rapidly, and the head banging on my desk began immediately. Until the Lord (maybe He rolled His eyes at me? #wouldvebeenappropriate) leaned in and reminded me, we have been displaced before… In fact, we were displaced for over 100 days just earlier this year. Which is not close to 146,000 days the Israelites were for over 40 years. God has been clear – His people are sojourners; eagerly looking to their eternal home not this earthly one. So #bringiton all over again. God knows what He is about and where that will be for His people! Countless servants at Redeemer illustrate that for me – most of all, our Savior Christ.
