Good evening. It's about 10 pm. Normally, I'm off to bed by now, but I've got the next two days off. Monday was supposed to be my monday off, but i had to go to a meeting, so it changed to tomorrow and then friday is a holiday. :)
Had a really good discussion after Bible study last night that just kept me thinking about what I really see for ministry in my future. I love that Jesus has it ALL under control and that He shows us enough of a glimpse to scare the poop out of us but also to prepare us that He's going to do things that WILL be bigger than we are. That's a GREAT thing... because the things I've seen in my future... well, there's no way I can do them alone. Just no way.
I'm going to try to be more faithful this week in Scripture reading. Last week I had a great time with Jesus... worshiping, praying, studying... but I want that deeper, more, and MORE OFTEN.
I love the song I've put on here. Steven's version is one of my favorite versions of this song. It's such a mournful song, really... but so full of hope and joy... it's really part of the true message of Christmas. Our Savior came to save US--in the midst of sorrow, in the midst of sin, in the midst of separateness (death's dark shadow...), He comes to bring us together. What a reason to worship Jesus.
Christmas really is my favorite time of the year and it's possible that's all the music you're going to listen to when you come here from now on will be Christmas. Pray with me that I'm in a new home before Christmas.
I'm cold and tired now. I'm off to bed. Good night all!
