Vision

It's amazing how one moment you can think of yourself one way, and after a few events, see yourself in a totally new way. Sometimes it's truth, sometimes it's a lie. When I try to look into my future and figure... I mean OUR future, if there's one thing I'm learning it's that this whole call process involves all three of us... anyway, as I was saying, when I look into our future and try and see us somewhere, anywhere, it's so difficult. Things are so much up in the air right now... I wish I had an ability to see into the future, to know what, where, how...

But the truth is, God knows, and I just have to sit and wait on that. Ironically, I'm preaching Sunday on this from Psalm 27:

Wait for the LORD;
be strong, and let your heart take courage;
wait for the LORD!


Hmmm, maybe this one's just as much to me as anyone else...

You don't know me, but my husband and I left PTS in 2005. A year was spent at a church in N. Ireland, and when we got back thought it would be a snap for my husband to get his first ordained call. We're still waiting - hopefully, nearing the end of it but, still waiting. All I wanted to say was it's nice to know we're not the only one's struggling with the waiting and not knowing.

The more I look at my sermons, the more I realize that they often are about me. The passion of our message obviously will be impacted by how much God first speaks to us before God speaks to our congregations.
