I know I haven’t updated the blog in a while. Over a month ago I asked you to pray with me about a position I was interviewing for at our church.
I thank God for your prayers. I trust that God would have given me the frame of mind and disposition of heart to praise him, whether or not I was offered the position.
God has once again surprised me by his plans, which are always better than my plans. I applied for an internship position and was offered a staff ministry position. I officially started today, serving in the Family Discipleship Department of Bethlehem Baptist Church as Pastoral Assistant for Young Adult Discipleship. I am so excited to be serving the body in this new capacity, and I am keenly aware of my need for God’s empowering grace.
I am reminded of my first post on this blog, in which I shared my disspointment after not making the cut for a job that I applied for. The same God who closed that door 2 years ago has opened another one for me now. He gives and he takes away. When the blessings pour in, I praise him for it. When the darkness closes in, still I will praise him.
