The past couple of weeks has almost been one continuous blur... I hate it when that happens. Time seems to run together... sometimes it is difficult to remember which day it actually is... days become a series of tasks and events that must be accomplished.
And then one is able to stop and reflect and see GOD's hand at work through the whole situation! HE is indeed an awesome GOD. HE has never (and will never) leave me!
Pre-marriage counselling sessions were completed.
Weddings were performed.
Grieving families were comforted.
Funerals were performed.
Diane's surgery went well.
...and during all of this sermons were preached, classes were taught, the Bible was studied, and people were visited!
Thank you FATHER for a faithful few weeks in spite of the storms of life!
I guess my biggest heart concern over the last few weeks (in reality probably longer than that) has been the apathy of so many Christians. Far too many seem concerned only with their own feelings rather than GOD's will. Far too many give up within prayer-shot of GOD's answer. It hurts me greatly to see so many Christians seemingly not care whether they participate in the advancement of GOD's Kingdom or not -- to just give up on GOD.
I believe that I (and we) are in a season of testing right now. We must wait on GOD; seek HIS face and will; and discharge our roles/responsibilities in FAITH! Please pray for me and for us as we do just that! Pray for boldness, courage, faith, strength, and wisdom!!!
