Full of changes…

Posted by cjoshua15 on October 10, 2007

There have been so many changes in life lately this blog has been all but abandoned.  I haven’t even been reading blogs for months either.  I know that I was so caught up in reading them that I was taking away from things I needed to be doing.  I learned that if God was going to bless me then I needed to make sure I was doing the things I needed to first.  I am working hard at getting some priorities straight and actually enjoyed a Saturday of not having to be somewhere doing something because I had to but doing something because I wanted to.

 

Teaching Sunday School on a regular basis has scared the fire out of me or into me.  The opportunity to pick the curriculum and then have something that is so pertinent to life on a daily basis has buried my face back in the Word.  Not that I quit but slacked off is a good way to look at it.  I have been reminded so much lately how great God is and how much He loves me.  That is such a comforting thing in the hectic world of today.  I finally feel like I have landed on both feet and neither of my ankles are shattered.

 

I have always known that God is so big and completely capable of anything but to see him at work in my life, in the life of the church, and in others around me over the past 10 months has been overwhelming.  Every time I think He has done something beyond belief He one ups Himself and does something even better and bigger.

 

I can remember when listening to all the broadcasts, praise and worship, as well as the mini sermons were what I lived for daily.  That waned away to where I was just saturating myself with the music and the words were being absorbed in the frequency bandwidth floating in the air.  I had to hear God calling me back to Him and I really didn’t want to listen because I had become content with life and it was good.  God reset the radio stations recently and removed my ability to tune in to the all music Christian station so I had to listen to the local station with the sermons included.  The first sermon I heard kept me in my car in the parking lot of work until it finished.  I didn’t care if I was late I so needed to hear the rest of the story.  At the end I found out that it was a replay of something they had run several years ago and the person had passed on to be with the Lord a few years back.  It didn’t matter, it was relevant today.  I needed to hear it and God knew it, He is so cool that way.  The station stays on the blended local Christian station all day now and I have and am continuing to work on a healthy balance of life.  I am working hard to honor God by doing my job first because He blessed me with it so I owe it to the people I work for to do it for the Glory of God to the best of my ability.  I am doing things I enjoy on a more frequent basis and praising God all along the way, for the good and the bad.

 

This rambled a bit but I felt like that would help put things in some bit of perspective of where I have been and where I am headed.  God continues to surround me with folks that have a great love of the Lord as mentors and I rejoice in that and look forward to what He has in store for every minute of every day.

 

Psalm 118:24 – “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

    Teaching is a humbling experience. I was afraid of making mistakes or just not being knowledgeable enough to teach but I remembered what a very wise woman once told me, “If God needs you to teach for Him, and you let Him use you, He will bless it and the fruit will multiply.” Letting Him teach and getting out of the way has been the only thing I could do. I almost ran when it came down to time to teach, I was so afraid of letting Him down. When I made preparation and invited Him to join me in that, and invited Him to class, He has been so amazing to see work. It makes me want to just sit and cry because I resisted when I thought I didn’t want to be part of this type of class when God said I got you through this part of life, use what I did and let me get others through it from your Glory for the Father.

    The victory and glory and praise of life is all to Christ!
