As I watched, I shook my head and said “really?”. I was royally ticked. We have been planning this Refresh for almost a year. We have prayed over these guys, fasted for them and have had countless hours planning this experience. In my mind I was thinking “and you can’t stop the rain for a day?”
Then, in that still small voice, Jesus said to me, “am I not in the rain?”
Chasing the King, has become an important phrase for me over the last few years. I guess you could call it a personal mantra but really it’s so much more. It has become my answer to one of the most foundational questions we all ask in life…”what do you want?”. My simple answer is, “I want to chase the king”.
A few months ago, eight men from past Refresh Groups joined Josh and I in a new leadership adventure in Estes Park, Colorado. This experience is designed for those who have traveled through Refresh, teaching them the leadership skills required to finish the race well (1 Cor 9:24). The central theme to this adventure is simple - great leaders chase after the king.
But there is a second part to that verse that we so often overlook.
