Shawn Lovejoy: Why I Resigned (And You Should Too)
As you tender your resignations, let me encourage you by saying that every time I resign, the craziest thing happens: an amazing transformation happens in my life.
I feel liberated. My burdens feel lighter.
I feel a sense of incredible relief.
I feel relieved to know that I don’t have to be the change agent for people.
I feel relieved to know that I don’t have to envision the future for our church.
That’s His job. I feel relived to know that I don’t have to make things happen through brilliant strategy, leadership, or clever preaching. Life change and church growth is His job. I wish I would have never taken that job away from Him. He is so much more capable than I am.
I’m sorry I ever took that role away from Him, as well.
I have resigned. I’ll keep on resigning, too. Why? So God can do immeasurably more than I could ever ask or imagine in and through my life; and build HIS church THROUGH me! If that sounds desirable to you, would you join me in tendering your resignation today? >>>
