I am a very impatient person. Maybe even a diva of sorts. When I want something, I want it now. I do not like to wait for things to happen, I make things happen. This has gotten me into trouble before. Also, I do not like transitions. I want to start something and do it as soon as I know that is what I am supposed to be doing. I want to dig in, get started and plant my roots deep. This works both in my favor and against. It is good because if there is conflict or something that needs to be addresses, I don’t put it off. I physically CAN’T put it off. It works against me when I need to wait patiently for something. I DESPISE waiting patiently. Oh wait, a fruit of the spirit is patience. I need to work on that one. The time from when God called me to me actually having a staff position at a church was only about 2 1/2 years, but it seemed like ETERNITY.
I speak at the 2nd Church Campus the 1st TWO Sundays in March. I meet with Pastor Mike Thursday right after I get off from work. I am both nervous and excited! During his sermon on Sunday, he was talking about how he approaches the pulpit on Sundays when giving a sermon, then he looked over at me and winked. Matt got a position change at work yesterday. He got a raise and will be having Wednesdays and Sundays off which is awesome for a Pastor’s spouse! God sure is lining things up for us!
We are on a flight to Florida for our vacation. I just finished preaching a 2-part series at the 2nd Church Campus. It was amazing! I was so nervous both Sundays, but once worship started I relaxed and just let God be in control. I think I did well and I felt God’s help in my preparation. I am looking forward to feedback from Pastor Mike and Pastor Bill. I get so physically exhausted afterwards, but I loved doing it. What’s next???
