Yesterday had some great moments and some difficult ones as well. It was a holiday weekend Sunday with the usual assortment of people being gone and others filling in for everything to go well. As for my musings …
-There was a very good response to the message yesterday. Nearly 40 people made a declaration to use the freedom Christ has provided to “shake free” from anything that is holding them back from the life Christ has for them. And to share with someone what freedom in Christ can mean for them.
-Our technical issues are getting much better at my 9:00 church thanks to the work and knowledge of our new Assistant Pastor. Way to go Pastor Matt.
-My 10:30 church is looking a lot like a journey through some caves. Makes sense because our Vacation Bible School begins in a week and it is entitled “Cave Quest”. The place is looking great and many people have been, and are still, putting in many hours on the decorating. I love how our people give so much of themselves to reach kids for Christ.
-My 9:00 church is just beginning the preparation for Vacation Bible School later in the summer and people are responding to serve. One of the greatest results of VBS every year is the community that comes from the adults serving together for such a significant time.
-Attendance was way down at my 10:30 church. My 9:00 church almost had their normal attendance.
-We are now 16 days from hugging my son, daughter (in law) and 5 of my grandkids as they arrive back in the states for a brief visit after 3 years of ministry in Kenya.
-This week I get to spend some time with 2 of my daughters and 5 of my grandkids. We will also get to visit my dad and stepmom. This will be fun.
-Looking forward to a relaxing day today. Stuff to get done but no agenda. If they get done great, if they don’t get done great.
-Had a great time of prayer this morning. Even on a holiday 3 other people joined me for our 5:30 to 6:30 am prayer on Mondays and Fridays.
-It feels like we are on the edge of something. It seems that we need to break through something and if we do then we will start experiencing a great move of God. It is time to keep pressing forward and to especially ramp up the passion and amount of our prayers.
Here’s hoping that you are seeing God at work in your life.
