"God Showed Me What's Next"

Back to this story about Michael Howard and the old "Lighthouse Church" building in Soquel. I remember, during one of our pastoral prayer meetings, Michael Howard telling all of us something interesting, something mysterious. We were all going around sharing honest answers to the question, "How are you doing?" Everyone shared what was happening in their ministry and in their families. We got around to Michael, who had been very honest with us that caring for a building that wasn't the best fit for his church. I think I said, "Michael what's going on with you?" and Michael said, "It hasn't been easy recently and I've been having some pretty intense conversations with God." Then this big smile came over his face and he said, "But last week God showed up. God pretty much told me what's next." It was one of those moments when I really wanted to ask Michael for more details but I knew it wasn't my place to know those details in that moment. I just celebrated along with Chuckk, Ben and Danny that God had responded to Michael's prayer and that God had given Michael a directive answer to his prayer. A few weeks later Danny Bennett's skate ministry was in serious trouble . . .
