In the last 6 months my life has become a weird mixture of stuff I never anticipated…
- self employed (always liked the idea, but never thought it would happen)
- NOT working in pastoral ministry (which I thought I’d be doing until Jesus returns)
- engaged in all kinds of business activities (which never interested me before)
- and about to become a grandpa (which I never imagined would be the case at 46 years of age).
But it’s amazing how changes like these can hit you out of the blue, and the LORD gives the grace to roll with it all. He’s kept me focused on Him throughout and actually eager to be engaged with Him in the process.
It’s been quite a ride.
My main life-lesson through it all has been this:
God is in control – so relax.
It’s amazing how little I’ve worried, felt stressed, or been in a place where I’m anxious about the future.
It’s all glory to Him really, and I’m a bit amazed by it (OK, a LOT amazed by it).
A cool thing to go along with it is that my wife has been in the same place too!
Thank You LORD, for Your faithfulness and presence.
