Ask for the Ancient Paths: The Unfolding Story of Maximus Heart

"Stand at the crossroads and look, ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls."                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Jeremiah 6:16

Everyone Has A Story...

God - as only He can - broke some very disconcerting news to me several years ago: He informed me that my heart wasn't going to be sacrificed to or for a ministry that had begun to crawl under my leadership beginning in 2015.


'Maximus Heart isn't about you anymore. It's FOR you.'


At first, I didn't know what that meant...until I listened to the wisdom of standing at the crossroads and looking...asking...for the ancient paths. What exactly does that mean for me, my heart, and my story wrapped up in the spiritual and masculine journey?? 


You see, I want to live out a story that's worth living! "And I have," as a good friend named Morgan once said,  "lost the ability to bullshit anymore." I've done a terrible job trying to out-God God in arranging for either very small stories to fill up the void of not living in the Larger Story or creating more "fig leaves" to hide behind in fear, shame, etc. So, at the nudging of the Wild Goose (what the old Celts called the Holy Spirit) - and with a set of circumstances that have recently led to a shuttering of all that MAXIMUS HEART used to be - I stand at the crossroads and look. 


It's OK for me to tell you that I can't see the path ahead of me - but I trust the One who has laid it out before I even reached it. Welcome to the unfolding story of MAXIMUS HEART...and you are encouraged to join in as we share stories from the wellspring of life!!
