News I Can Use

So.
In the life is stranger than fiction category, my resurrection saga continues.
In the category of never saying never, well, I made that mistake too.
In the category of a seemingly never-ending job search, well, that’s a wrap!

Hallelujah! I have a job. And not just a job, a ministry! I have been given the opportunity to serve with and minister to and for the wonderful folks at the Lake Harbour Drive Church of Christ in Ridgeland, MS.

I am beyond excited. I cannot wait to begin working with this group of elders, deacons, and saints.

Will there be problems and difficulties? Absolutely!
Will I have to stretch and grow? Without a doubt, yes!
Will there be growing pains? Of course.

But I am still overwhelmed by the knowledge: God is not through with me yet!

If God is not through with me, then rest assured, God is not through with you either! Life can be hard, unyielding, and relentless. It can feel for all the world like unending roller coaster of pain and suffering.

I get that. Been there; done that. Got the T-Shirt. And still I wrestle and struggle… In some ways, I always will until this life ends and my eternity begins.

But God is still God.
His Throne is secure.

So hold on.
Hold on.

God is not through with us yet.

And if you are in the area, come see us. I start my new job (did I mention I have a fantastic new job?) on April 28th.

I’ll post a real blog post soon.
Promise.

  1. Mike and I are members at LHD and so excited you and your family are coming! Your personal experiences I think gives you a “real” insight to loss, grief, fear and faith. People suffer significant losses from love ones dying, children wrestling with additions, divorce and more. Stories & circumstantances maybe different, but the feelings of how we process these losses are a common thread of emotional hurt, physical & mental pain, shame and the fear of things that we don’t control. How we or as I have learned “fear and faith” can’t co-exist. I’ve had to learn sometimes “kicking & screaming” I only control me, god has the rest and I have to trust His Plan not mine. I have seen in our family the micrales of Gods continuing mercy and grace He continues to pour on us because He isn’t through with us . It is so exciting to know you have been there, done that and the blessings you will bring to LHD. God isn’t through with LHD can’t wait to see what He has planned.

  2. Praise God from whom all blessings flow! I rejoice with this answer to prayer. It also gives me hope that God will answer my desperate plea as well. Blessings.
