Life keeps happening!

This is an unusual week. 

Up to one funeral a week.  That’s not bad. 

This week I attended two funerals, both for young people — attached in some way to individuals in the congregation.  We sat with a lady who is looking at only a short time left in this earthly journey.  A pastor friend of mine had a sever heart attack.  My wife had a stressful trip that was in less than ideal weather conditions.  Others are suffering from cancer, stress and daily burdens.  That’s without dealing with marital and financial issues.  And my calendar also contains other events!

All of these are usual, but not all at once.

Add to that the fact that I deal daily with my own personal transformation issues — part of living in a world that would rather I be conformed to the status quo rather than changing to be more like God.

The interesting thing — I am refreshed. 

As though God put me here just for such a time as this??

One thought on “Life keeps happening!

  1. Being refreshed fulfilling God’s purpose for ones life – is the strange way that is ‘God at work’ – seems to me the only way that happens is by abiding in HIM and being sheltered under His wings.

    Think I will try to remember to keep you in prayer – as front line ministry is where one finds Jesus – and through the annointing of the Holy Spirit others will also find Jesus for Jesus ministry is very front line.

    God Bless.
