Job 18; Psalm 114; Acts 27 & 28

It’s Friday…….a weekend, every bit as busy as weekends past but HEY it’s a weekend. We have an opportunity this weekend to serve hopefully around 1000 people from the Northland…..showing them how much fun we have BEING the church…..showing them love and friendship and servanthood because we just love Him……showing them it doesn’t have to be something that is out to ‘get them’…..not something that wants to lay a whole bunch of rules and legalistic expectations on them……
I don’t know what it looks like for sure but in this case I get to…..’get to’ serve them.
So yes there will be work and stress involved but in the work and stress is a whole bunch of fun….a current runs through serving like this that you just can’t explain to someone and IF you try to…..well you can sound crazy.......or worse all preachy.....but it's not either..... because when it is just that a current running through your body…..energizing you to the job….unexplainable perhaps.....
Seems as though yesterday strengthened me, the whole of being vulnerable while painful was like I said strangely exhilarating…not about me defending myself or preaching at anyone……just about standing with You and trusting in Your protection….humbly realizing everything is about YOU…..
And now today I am praying to grow in my compassion…..how quickly it becomes about me and I lose compassion IF I ever had it in the first place…? So a weekend is coming…..I just want to let that current run through…..

DANG .....maybe I am crazy...... Have a great weekend....Serve Someone!!!

Yeah, you could be crazy but in a good kinda way :)

Can't wait to hear about the serving experience. Sounds like a great time.

You serve me just by writing your blog so openly and honestly.
