Before I get to the heart and meet of this post let me just indulge with you my comfortable Sunday outfit. I had a “don’t have anything [clean] to wear to church” moment Sunday so what did I do? I took a summer maxi striped dress, placed a oxblood colored long sleeved tee over top that I got from Target last year and layered with a sweater cardigan over top. I felt rather comfortable in my layered look while everyone else froze their tooshies off. To complete the look I added cognac colored boots. My husband rather liked the “bohemian” look of my layers. Silly, cute hubby!
This particular Sunday had its ups and downs. The kids were so tired from weekend festivities that they were hard to handle, which made my husband and I grouchy. The good thing about our Sunday was visiting my father-in-laws church (he is the Pastor) as they celebrated the churches 50 year anniversary.While we were there my hubby and I finally went up to the church altar to receive prayer for our call to ministry. My husband meets with the head overseer to discuss this calling over lunch hopefully this week to find out what we need to do or where there is a need.
I don’t believe I have revealed it on the blog before but my husband has his ministers license and use to youth pastor before meeting me. In his season of youth pastoring that is when he felt the closest to God. Around the same time in another part of the state I was ministering to college girls at my University and in that season I felt closest to God. I loved where I was, and he loved where he was. Get the point!
For years now my husband and I have served at our local church, but the burden of not being actual ministers somewhere has been heavy on our hearts lately, especially my husbands. It is scary to give to God the future and say “wherever you need me that is where I will go.” I told my husband how when going to college I never expected to minister, disciple, share Christ with college students and grow in the Lord and heal from things of my past but God used me and I am excited for what He has taught me and will continue to teach me as we pursue this new avenue of adventure together.
Your prayers would be appreciated as we use this time and season to grow and accept where God could use us or grow us. Serving God is one of the most wonderful things I have EVER…EVER done and it has been far to long since having the fire I once did.
This doesn’t mean I am giving up on blogging (unless God calls me away from it) but I am letting you all know as I feel you should know in case things start getting different around here.
If you know and serve the Lord what has been the scariest yet most fulfilling thing you have done for the Lord? What has he called you to do specifically? How is God using you now in this season of life? How can you be used for His glory?
I would love to know your thoughts.
God Bless, Rachel
