I went to see my doctor a few weeks ago for a follow-up appointment. She told me I was obese according to some scientific standards. After getting over the initial shock, I had to determine what I was going to do about it, if anything. This week, on Tuesday morning, I got up around 6:00am and went for a walk/jog and I am now two days into this new routine. I know I need a change if I want to hear good news from my doctor the next time she sees me, so I can’t let this new routine fade.

It is easy to fall back in to old routines. We at Damascus Road Fellowship have this vision to see our communities TRANSFORMED BY GOD”S GRACE one person at a time. Each of us who are apart of this great church, must refocus our minds and our thinking on this vision so that it drives us, and when we feel like that we are falling back into old routines and overlooking the vision, we need a refocus.

It will be hard, and there will be times we will lose focus, so let’s hold each other accountable and encourage one another to keep reaching for the vision God has called us to.   With Him, we can incredible things and see lives transformed in ways we never knew. May we together walk this journey together so our Great Physician will say, “well done my faithful servants.”

I love you church,

Your pastor
