It was a great first day back at the office. I was so excited to share with everyone what I had experienced at WFX. I came home wanting to change the world. But… there was one close friend I felt the need to avoid. By lunch, my avoidance time was over and it was time to talk. As I started to unpack my awesome, God changing experience, she pointed out two very critical things. First, God can accomplish all that He desires without us. He chooses to use us but frankly it is not the work we can do for God but the work that He can do in us that matters most. This was the first peg in the ladder as I came down from the rafters. Second, while I was standing on my grand soap box sharing the experience, I was not leading anyone to experience the same life change. I was challenged to teach on the concepts tomorrow instead of just hyperly (if that’s a word) sharing them. So we’ll be visiting 1 Timothy 4:6-16 (A good servant of Christ Jesus). My prayer is that this provides more conversation and impact than just my ramblings. Coming home this evening I was back to reality but had no idea what was in store. My son is in the first grade and has been struggling to learn how to read, we work with him everyday but nothing seems to be helping. Tonight my old nature won and I blew up at him, I realized that God has a lot of work to do in my character before I can ever be considered ready for a huge assignment. Blogs will continue, I love to write and even if no one else is reading it is awesome reflection on the work of Christ in my life. God is so good!
