During the lunch break on Thursday I was standing there and Tim said something to me like this, “Are you OK? You look like you are in deep thought or something is bothering you…”
I was OK. I think I was stunned after that first message. Andy Stanley talked about 3 specific things and how they relate to doing ministry. They are: Forgiveness, Family, and Finances. God really got my attention right off the bat.
Just moments prior to Stanley’s talk I had a conversation about forgivenss. Then to hear Stanley talk about it I was dumb-founded. I was in shock… it was as if he had just read my mail… like he had been listening in on my conversation… this was such a God moment for me. Literally I thought I was the only one in the room. The element of Finances was the other key point to this power-packed threesome of points. As a family, we have made some decisions on this as well.
The mess was cleaned up with each message I heard afterward. Now that I am home I am trying to figure out what the purpose of all this was. I think I know. I am still praying through it. I want to do what thus says the LORD. I am making sure I’m not chasing after something Roye wants to do.
So I am back to making another decision. I know Joel would have you think the decision still centers on whether I should wear Boxers or Briefs. (If you need more info on this click here… then read the comments).
It’s kind of an exciting moment… not the choice of boxer or briefs. That decision has been already made.
So, while we are on the subject I think I will try out this new feature here on wordpress…
