The CD began. As the lyrics to Bluetree’s hit song God of This City entered my mind, so did two images. For those unfamiliar with the song, the chorus proclaims “Greater things are yet to come. Greater things are still to be done in this city.” My heart resonates with that sentiment. Great things have been done in Panama, NY. Great things have been done in Lisbon, Portugal. And yet, I believe greater things are still to come. Greater things are still to be done in both of these “cities.”
I desire to see those greater things. I live with a divided heart. I’m passionate for my home church, the school where I minister, and the town where I live. At the same time, my heart has gladly accepted our new assignment. I want to be part of the story of God in Portugal. I do not love one more than the other any more than a parent loves one child more than another. I love them both. I have great dreams for them both. I have a divided and broken, yet excited, heart that beats with anticipation because greater things are still to be done in this city!
