Still Crazy After All These Years

Still Crazy After All These Years

“God may be leading me to start a church.”

That’s what I said. 

Maybe.

Four months later she launched,

more like a raft on river rapids

than a sturdy ship at sea.

What was I doing

in a raft full of teenagers

and a few adults who couldn’t swim?

The current carried us

relentlessly forward,

never back.

Some jumped into the water

and swam,

back, to shore, another boat…

Our little boat went on,

the ride was wild at times,

but never out of control.

The years have passed,

people have come and gone,

but our church moves on.

I could have quit many times,

and a few times I’ve been tempted.

Something supernatural,

Someone Supernatural,

kept me here

and drives us on,

still crazy after all these years.

And, yes, I still believe.

Lifewell exists for a purpose,

to reach the unreached

and unreachable,

a refuge for the orphaned and rejected,

worshiping God without pretense,

in Spirit and Truth,

teaching the Truth of Christ, 

learning to live and love well.

Twenty years came and went.

Maybe we’re not all we could be,

or should be, 

but we’re here

because God wants us to be, 

and He has promised great things

if we hold on and believe.
