I Gotta Leave

November 24, 2017

If I’m gonna live this dream, I gotta leave Joshua Tree, sings High South.

Jamey Garner is in that group. If you and I are Facebook friends (and if we’re not, just ask: I’m simply Joe Scheets there), you’ve seen his picture and been able to follow their career. I was his pastor when he was in high school.

He was in a band with several of us that started at a United Methodist Church Camp. The camp was called Aldersgate. The band was named, in good heavy handed and obvious United Methodist fashion, “Aldersgate: The Band.” For real.

If I’m gonna live this dream, I gotta leave Joshua Tree. 

You and I have our own Joshua Tree places, situations, and even relationships.

Sometimes we’ve simply stayed there too long. Sometimes we’re afraid to move into the unknown.

Sometimes we hear these kind of words: “Leave your country, your people and your family home and go to the land I will show you.” God said that to Abram in Genesis 12:1.

Who or what is your own personal Joshua Tree?

And what dream is calling you to life today?

If I’m gonna live this dream, I gotta leave Joshua Tree.
