So here we go…
-Sunday was another good day. Once again, the Spirit was powerful and tangible in our time of worship. I am loving that this is becoming something of a regular thing.
-People were very engaged during the sermon.
-There was response at the altar.
-Attendance was down from what we have been averaging in recent weeks, but still significantly above this time last year.
-There were new people in attendance and a person who visited the week before returned.
-There were some distractions but this week our sound system was not one of them.
-I did not feel good about the sermon but the Holy Spirit worked anyway. I believe part of my problem was that I was so invested in this sermon and it hit me so hard that I got in the way of the message a bit. The Lord certainly worked on me in this message.
-Our small group was very small, but again we had some good discussion and had some fun with an exercise that was supposed to reveal what biblical character we were most like. That was fun.
-Fatigue had really taken over for me by the end of the day. This was to be expected after being at a training seminar for 3 days, with 7 pages of personal notes, a notebook with 45 pages of notes and 11 books to read which will help cement the training I received.
Yesterday I just could not seem to get focused and my mind was running away with many thoughts of evaluation and that is my excuse for not writing this post. Every once in a while stuff just seems to all hit you at the same time mentally and emotionally. Yesterday was one of those days.
Here’s hoping your reflections are encouraging and that you realize that no matter what you are facing God is still God and he loves you and is on your side.
