We will mark 29 years of officership in June. 29 years of ministry. 29 years of praying, worrying, working, pushing on…29 years of Bible studies, sermons, visits…29 years of funerals, weddings, dedications. The past 5 years it’s been about administration more than anything…it’s been about leadership, decision making, team work, team building.
But nothing in all those 29 years has brought me more joy than preaching. It happened again today – the message was aimed more for the kids, and truth be told I could tell the adults were listening too! As we came down to the end I asked who would like to be prayed for, who would like to make a decision – who would like to leave a changed person. There were lots of hands…and one was a little girl, maybe 6 years of age.
I prayed for them all – I prayed for her. That God would have freedom to do a work in their hearts that would mean awakening Monday morning knowing they were different.
If you think of it – would you pray for them too? Would you pray for that 6 year old?
As way of passing I was 7 when I knew I wanted God to do a work in my life.
He isn’t finished that work either.
